Came for the winery, ended up staying in a cabin for the night. Very nice and rustic accommodations. Refrigerator stocked with snacks and drinks, plus complimentary bottle of wine with each cabin. Nice staff too. Very relaxing sitting area by the lake too.

Lots of money spent on the cabins, woodworking is beautiful. Needs a remodel, futon was dirty. No chairs to sit in, no lamps, no plugs for alarm, very little lit, we had to use a flashlight. Bathroom has a sink no vanity to put lady items. Heater was extremely noisy. Spa thing in the middle of the room is a... More

I came with family on a recent trip. There was some sort of vendor fair going on and there were people everywhere. Not quiet at all and when I asked a staff member what was going on they didn't know. We went to order food and they had a poor girl standing out there freezing. When it finally came time... More

We stayed here for our anniversary. Very nice room. Had a heart shape jacuzzi in the middle of the room. Had a bottle of wine and cheese and crackers waiting for us in the room. The cabins are a easy walk from the winery. May make this an annual trip. Would definitely recommend.

I don't live far from this winery, yet i don't go nearly enough. Its lovely, hidden away, has delicious wines, great appetizers and wonderful outdoor atmosphere. Not much beats sitting out by the lake enjoying a sweet red with your favorite people.

First of off the cabins are much bigger than the pictures shown on the website. The cabin was clean, bright and well worth the reasonable price per night. The cabins sit in the middle of a wooded area and are private. The mini kitchen was stocked with coffee, fresh creamer, sugar and tea. We were supplied with cheese, sausage and... More

Took a day trip here with girlfriend's. The scenery was breathtaking! VERY NICE winery with great wine choices and an even better wedding venue. Multiple choices for indoor or outdoor weddings. Cabins are available and even though we didn't stay this trip, I plan on doing so very soon!

We had such a great stay here. It was a great staycation for both of us. The inside of the cabins were beautiful and the food and wine were both delicious. I had a nice evening sitting on the patio and watching the leaves, sitting in the whirlpool tub, and laying by the fireplace. The only thing that I would... More

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the cabins. The cabins, nestled in a wooded area, provide a private retreat but are nicely finished and furnished. A cabin the size of a suite furnished with a fridge, tv, king bed, and jacuzzi tub (not to mention a complimentary bottle of wine) at $115...this is a beautiful get-away priced like... More

The wine is very good, there's a sweet cat who hung out around our patio, and the little lake and path were lovely. There were ants in the window of our first cabin so we called down and told them, a girl came about 20-30 minutes later and moved us to the cabin next door. There were ants in that... More
