“Fantastic weekend!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

From the moment we arrived, we felt like "family" here. The room was gorgeous and perfect for a relaxing weekend, which we had planned. The short walk over to the winery is most convienent and the wine there was great! We met some other couples there and enjoyed spending time with new friends. The fireplace helped make the room toasty. We enjoyed the home-cooked breakfasts there each morning and the staff paid such attention to detail! More coffee, hot tea, and even a special trip was made for ginger-ale for an upset stomach. The whole staff went above and beyond to assure that the guests were comfortable and happy. We cannot wait to go back for another perfect weekend getaway! I highly recommend this B&B for anyone looking for relaxation, with a warm, friendly staff. Go there!!!

Jackie and Cody were great. They are a real asset to this B&B. The breakfast they prepard was superb. My kids even asked if we could go back soon. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back.

This is a small B&B with only 8 rooms. So it is hard to be sure everyone gets what they want. When I received the wrong room (promised jacuzzi tub; got no tub), every effort was made to make up for it. Aside from that the people are very friendly, the wine is great and the home-cooked breakfast fantastic.

The staff was fabulous! They were helpful and always available when we needed something. The room was beautiful (blueberry suite). But there's a camera outside the window that pans and you can hear the zzzz sound it makes as it moves; kind of annoying while trying to sleep. Wine was a bit overpriced, but delicious. Bed super comfy, house was elegant! Breakfast complimentary and delicious, but never on time (they say 9, runs more toward 945). We were promised a fire in the evening it was a Saturday night but they never made one. I'd go back in a heart beat!

My husband and I really enjoyed our visit. The staff were very friendly, our room was warm, inviting and very comfortable. We visited the winery and enjoyed the wine. We took one of the bottles we bought outside to a very comfortable and warm late afternoon and sat around the pond and just really enjoyed ourselves. On Sunday morning we had a very nice breakfast and plenty of great coffee. Service was good and we would definitely go back.

Room Tip: We were in the Chardonnay room and loved it.

I stayed here this past weekend since it is a bed and breakfast and I must say I will for sure come come back as often as I can when I need to get away. Tie place is beautiful and the innkeepers are some of the nicest ppl I have ever met. My room was the blueberry suite which my fiancé loved staying in and thought the room was beautiful with a great view of the pond and mountains outside. The villa is very spacious and they even have some cookies waiting for you or pie as soon as you arrive through the front door. This place is so relaxing and even the winery has some really good tastings with the extremely helpful staff. I stayed the entire weekend and really didn't want to leave when my time was up. Had a pretty good massage while staying there as well and some directv tv in case you need it in the room. My fiancé also loved the jacuzzi tub in our room a lot and the breakfast they served was pretty good as well. Our first day there we never left the grounds cuz that's how awesome this place is. I couldn't say enough good things about this place. Everyone needs to stay here at least once!

The innkeepers from our bed and breakfast suggested we come here to find good wine.

The winery was packed with people when we arrived and the wait was quite long for a tasting. Although the wine was good, the wait made the whole thing a little hard to deal with. Additionally, the young lady pouring seemed a bit overwhelmed with the visitors.

I did buy a bottle of wine but was quite put off by the long wait.

This would be a better experience with more staff to handle larger crouds.
