what a cool little inn in such a generic little town. my son and i were traveling to Yosemite Park and found this cute place with a winery and wine /beer garden on the premises. mind you, we aren't hotel chain sort of people so this place was perfect.
we started our adventure in the winery, where the one of the owners and winemaker (Anna) told us about her style of wine making while we sampled her wonderful wines.
the inn and surroundings are quaint, well kept and tastefully decorated. the wine bar (wine /beer garden) has a warm welcoming feeling with plenty of friendly locals. Deb the other owner of the property was extremely helpful and kept us laughing. they have firepits outside to get your breath of fresh air while still keeping warm. we heard that during the spring through fall months they have live music on the patio.
my room had plenty of space and a cute deck to enjoy the fall colors. the bed was very comfortable and the gas fireplace was a really sweet touch. the breakfast was continental (that's what we expected). we asked if they could recommend a place for brunch and let told us about a little cajun place called Woody's. Good food and hospitality.
we had a wonderful little visit and look forward to coming back to sample the live music
