We just stayed in the carriage house and it was truly what we were looking for which was a total disconnect from the D.C. area. We took a cooler with a picnic dinner so after wine tasting we sat on our own personal deck overlooking the small river and enjoyed our wine and dinner in total quiet. Jim served us super moist, warm from the oven muffins and cinnamon bread in the mornings which were amazingly delicious. At night the lightening bugs came out and the whole area looked like it had been dusted with glitter. It's like the place that time forgot, no wifi, cell phone or TV but it is so refreshing. The views are spectacular and skyline drive is a short trip away. I've never been wine tasting before so I can't compare our experience but Jim walked us through all the wines and explained why they tasted the way they did. We bought several bottles to take home and I have a new found appreciation for wine.
