We had the pleasure of a two night stay at the historic Greenhill Lodge in early February 2014. It was magnificent! John and Christine are wonderful hosts. The lodge is in the countryside very close to the wineries that we toured during the day. Highlights for us included evening cocktails fireside, sumptuous breakfast, sweet treats in our room, sleeping on exquisite bed linens and bathing with my favorite Molton Brown toiletries. We decided to dine at the lodge one night and it was so special. The evening was cool enough to start a fire so we had canapés and wine by the fire in the living room to start our evening. Then into the beautiful dining room with a table that seats 12 that was set for just for the two of us... Beautiful flowers, crystal, candles and another roaring fire. So romantic and so good! It was like a scene out of Downton Abbey. John's tour around the lodge and property was worthwhile as well.
