When you put so much effort into finding a great place in a city you've never travelled to, you want it to live upto expectations. Chuck and Cindee and Wind in the Pines have found a way to create the perfect B&B experience, exceeding even our high expectations. The spacious 'Moose' room was spotless and cozy. The bed was comfy. The view out the window was magnificent, seeing the beautiful pines and spruces. Hearing the beautiful wind chimes and the gurgling of the fountain added to the relaxed atmosphere here. Once you are there you can easily wander out to the patio or gazebo to sit and simply listen to the rustling of the wind, the chimes, the bubbling of the fountain.
The guests show up for a great breakfast and chatter each day at 9:00. Chuck and Cindee come up with new items each day, and they wander in and out to talk with the guests. They are extremely knowledgeable about local restaurants, wineries, and other great things to do in the area.
During this visit another guest was wheelchair bound and I know that Chuck and Cindee went to great lengths to accomodate them and make their visit special. The B&B is not 100% handicap friendly, but pretty darn close.
My wife and I have already booked a room for next May and can't wait to return.
