We stayed at Vinifera for a one night getaway in Wine Country. The home itself is beautiful and very well restored, the property alone is fantastic. Wish it had been warmer as we would have loved to sit by the pool and relax!. The suite we selected (the Bridal suite) was VERY ornate but the bed very comfortable, and the room & bathroom full of "little touches" that were very special, you can tell they went to a lot of trouble to make the inn comfortable and beautiful. The owners made us feel welcome and showed us around. Barb gave lots of suggestions for good wineries to visit which was a great tip, helped us plan our route. Breakfast the next day was delicious. All in all, went off without a hitch. Our only "problem" was that as we were a younger couple, we felt as though Barb treated us a bit like a mother. She scolded my husband for using the wrong fork at one point during breakfast, scolded us for passing up on one of the wineries she suggested we visit, and attempted to give us etiquette lessons. It was more than a bit uncomfortable. We both felt as though our own parents would have enjoyed the stay far more than we did. Also, she began playing some type of relaxation music quite loudly on Sunday morning which was too bad as we were the only guests in the inn, and we were sleeping --- why blast the music so early on a Sunday morning? All in all, a great spot to visit, we just had a personality conflict. We didn't mind the kitties on the property but if you had allergies, you should watch out.
