If you are looking for a great place to stay and tour the PEC wine country, Huff Estates is a great place to stay. This was our second stay and it was as wonderful as the first. We have only stayed in the standard rooms which are a great size, have 2 club chairs, a flat screen TV, desk, small fridge, patio with a table & chairs, & a shower, no bath tub. (YES I know 2 &'s in a sentence is improper grammar) It would be nice if a few of the rooms had a king or queen size bed instead of the 2 doubles. The staff go out of their way to be helpful & everyone one is really nice. A trait you will find replicated throughout the county. Breakfast is included and you have to try the chocolate waffles! I am a waffle traditionalist and the only choices that should be allowed are bacon or sausages with your maple syrup. Fruit, whip cream &/or or icing sugar are great as a desert, but not for breakfast. I was talked into the chocolate waffle by the hostess and she was right. I tactfully ignored the whip cream in the ice bucket & got the sausages.
On the grounds are the Winery and the Oeno Art Gallery, both are must visits whether you stay here or not. Huff wines are great, and you must try the sparking Rose. PEC is more than just PINOT!
We arrived on Wed., May 22 which was a muggy day which was supposed to have some rain in it. Overnight we had what could only be described as a monsoon. The rain was so hard it woke us up a few times. Thursday was not looking good & I mentioned it to our hostess and the housekeeper. They offered to do a Sun Dance to keep the rain away. While it did "sprinkle" a couple of times while we were driving between wineries, not one drop fell while we were out walking. I know not where they get their power over the rain, but keep it up!
If you are on a wine tasting trip to the country, this location is centrally located. With over 30 wineries in the region, I would select at least one night or 2 like we did. That way you can drive home on day 3.
