Sometimes the corporateness of hospitality can be waring.You know the kind of thing: "Contact our VP of Customer relations "or "join our nation wide rewards programme". This property just has an Innkeeper and a very good one he is too.
He and his excellent team fully understand exactly what his customers are looking for.No you dont want to drive to dinner so a free transport service is offered.How can you select the right vineyards to visit?.The inn cursions programmme will do it for you.If you just want to get away for a few days then the well appointed rooms and top class cottages will suit and there is a great pool nestling in the vines.
Some of the furnishings are a little quirky (I wouldnt want a stain glass window or distressed iron bedstead at home )but it ads to the distinctiveness and character of the Inn.
Highlight for me however were the gardens.In the Napa valley it appears that every spare piece of ground is planted to vines .Here the roses and a wide array of shrubs, flowers provide a spectacle of colour and aromas and attract the most delightful humming birds.
I have a worry.I read that the next generation (the Innkeepers son) is away studying Hospitality Management at College, no doubt studying how to be a VP of Customer Satisfaction or similar.All I would say is that there is some great education to be had very, very close to home.
