We came for the Epitourean tour , 3 day, 2 night through the Epitourean.com culinary tours. We were not at all given what we paid for in the 3 day and 2 night package as far as that goes. The photos are very misleading from the Epitourean.com website for this course. We ended up "working" more than really getting a vacation. Our last day there was really the only "self guided wine tour" that we got and it was to one winery, which ended up being the highlight of our trip. Although the rooms are nice inside the Inn, clean and comfortable, the outside is in need of some serious renovation. Paint, cleaning of the windows, spiders and ants all outside of our room. We were thankful though that our room was clean inside. I would recommend this Inn for just a night or two stay but would not recommend for the Epitourean culinary class as it is way over priced for what you receive. Frozen food, no fresh vegetables and very little water. We had to ask for water and were never "served" except for when the Chef's wife was there. She realized we hadn't had any water all day. We literally ended up having to cook all our own food as well as a few guests that came in, not just for one night. So we looked at it like the owner really makes you pay to work there, in a sense. Great place I am sure for the traveller who doesn't sign up for the Epitourean culinary trip but over priced for a nights stay for what you receive. From us it would receive a higher rating if maybe we hadn't gone for the Epitourean part and just stayed as regular guests. The overall condition of the outside as well would rate higher if taken care of. However, it does deserve the Average rating based on the cleanliness and the comfortable rooms. The people are very nice too which made up for some of the other items we did not receive with our tour.
