We stayed here for a night in April, and couldn't have felt more taken care of. The house was immaculate and the hosts were very welcoming. Our room, the Merlot room was large, with a king four poster bed and a comfortable arm chair. It also had a great en-suite bathroom with a large jacuzzi tub. The hosts arranged a wine tour for us, as well as took care of dinner reservations at a great farm to table restaurant in town. The following morning they made a multiple course breakfast of fresh fruit, freshly baked scones, and oatmeal blueberry pancakes. We would highly recommend the Merlot House to anyone looking to get away from it all for a weekend. You will not be disappointed!
