Rendevoused with family and friends at this charming, intimate, cozy lodge over the holidays. The staff was genuinely attentive and offered a wine tasting at checkin! Our room was upscale modern, with interesting design features including a soak tub and a corner fireplace. Great view of outside garden and surroundings and very tranquil. We really enjoyed the ambience and the feel of the lodge itself. There is a pleasant bar area right off the main lobby to meet for a glass of wine and while there we noticed so many guests arriving with their dogs! The hotel is apparently very dog friendly and welcoming to pet owners. Being a country environment this is a great place to bring a dog as there are walking trails right outside the property. As others have mentioned, the Barking Frog restaurant is adjacent and we had a wonder holiday meal there. This is a place to come to - outside the city and enjoy all of the close by wineries or unwind in their onsite spa. This is a special place with a hint of magic!
