I stayed at the Red Horse Inn and I can understand the enthusiasm from the other posters here, but I have an issue with this property that I think should be pointed out.
Having stayed at many inns and B&Bs I've come to expect a certain level of service and accommodation that should be included in what I am paying to stay at any property, but I feel like the owners of the Red Horse Inn are of a different mindset.
It is as if the owners attended a seminar on how to upsell their customers to drive additional revenues.
For example, when planning a weekend at a B&B I like to have the option and opportunity to show up a bit early or lounge around and leave a bit late depending on my schedule and what my inclination might be. The Red Horse Inn charges $50 to arrive 2 hours early or to leave 2 hours late and arrangements must be made in advance.
When I was greeted the owner said that she had compiled travel guides that provided information and directions to different sites in the area. The guides were available for purchase for $20 (although they included money-saving discount coupons).
There are vineyards in the area and I bought some wine but I was careful not to enjoy the wine while staying at the Inn because I had read that I would be charged a $15 "corkage fee" for enjoying wine that I brought myself rather than purchasing a bottle from the Inn's selection.
This Inn is in a beautiful location and it is a beautiful property, but the nickle and dime approach taken by the owners is unseemly and for that reason I would not stay here again.
