I had heard great things about the Tuscany House and I can tell you, I was not disappointed. This is a beautifully appointed hotel in the Renault Winery Resort. While the winery is over 140 years old, the hotel is less than ten, and fully modern. The trick is that they make it fit in so well with the old winery just across the driveway.
The decor is an ode to traditional architecture of the Tuscany region of Italy; gorgeous murals, fountains, and luxurious hardwoods. You will wonder how you stepped so quickly from the Pine Barrens of New Jersey into the lush Tuscan atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We were given a room with a balcony and king size bed! They seem to pay attention to details so closely here.
The hotel has two nicely landscaped pools. Neither is particularly large, but keep in mind the hotel only has 50 or so rooms, so there is plenty of room for all. Joseph's Restaurant, within the hotel, is picturesque, and more impressive is the food! A nice menu. and every dish has been well thought out and executed. Dining here is a treat! The only bigger treat is the Gourmet Restaurant across the driveway at the Winery. This place is top notch. Here, a limited menu signals that they offer only the very best. A six-course meal where you choose the entrees and they prepare 5 gourmet courses to compliment it. This dining sensation has earned quite a reputation - don't miss it.
I advise looking into the various package deals The Tuscany House offers. I found a wonderful package that actually INCLUDES dinner at either restaurant, plus complimentary lunch, wine tour and wine! A two-night stay gets you into both restaurants!
For golf enthusiasts, they have a highly-rated golf course right on the resort, so your days can be full. Plus with additional wineries in the area and Historic Smithville just 15 minutes away, and Atlantic City less than 30, you have plenty to do over the course of a 3 or 4 day stay.
Tuscany House is a hidden treasure - one worth searching for!
