This is a great B and B. The innkeepers are super personable and make GREAT breakfast. We stayed at the Bordeaux room which had lots of windows and overlooked a nice view. List of pluses - homemade marinated goat cheese, crostini, chocolate and Marlowe's own wine when we got there. Beautiful sheets, feather bed, toasty comforter for night time. Big bathtub with lavender bath accoutrements provided. Fluffy egyptian cotton towels, chenille bathrobes. And breakfast coffee brought to the room. I really like the fact that this place is in a vineyard away from other houses. There are only three rooms. The full moon was more beautiful because I could sit in quiet and just watch it rise over the knoll in perfect privacy. We'll be back for sure.
