It was an amazing experience not only due to the serene surroundings, but because of the gracious hospitality that Jake and Colleen showed. From the moment we arrived they made us feel so welcome. The room we had reserved was on the 2nd floor so... More

We had a great stay over valentines day weekend at Serenata. Beautifully decorated to high standards, and spacious, rooms. We had dinner at Poplar Grove Vineyards - Vanilla Pod restaurant - nearby, which was a special treat. Breakfasts were exceptional and our hosts, Jake and Colleen, made us feel like home. A special oasis where all problems melt away and... More

We agree with the previous praise of the Serenata Guesthouse. Staying there is a very pleasant experience. Jake and Colleen are the perfect hosts, helpful, friendly, and relaxed. You feel right at home. They are very knowledgeable about the local community, its history, where to taste wine, to eat , or enjoy the local attractions. An additional highlight for us... More

We got married at Serenata three years ago and came back this year for our anniversary. Despite a change in ownership, everything was as we remembered it. Jake and Colleen are lovely hosts and I can't say enough about Serenata. I would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a quiet, serene place to relax during their time in wine... More
