If you are looking for a "catch your breath" place, this is IT! We just stayed there for two nights and so enjoyed the ambience of being in a surreal setting amongst the cliffs and moonscape topography of this special place. We were looking for somewhere to stay on a driving trip from Spokane to Seattle, and I found this gem. We stayed in a Cliffhouse; highly recommended. Worth the extra money for sure. We stayed in room #7, which originally we thought was too close to the main building but decided that it had one of the best -- if not the best -- view of all. Extremely comfy bed, spacious bath and sitting area with fireplace made us feel right at home.
The complimentary wine tastings and two free bottles of wine were nice (part of our package), but being big winos with lots of tastings under our belts we felt the wines of Cave B were a bit underwhelming. They grow an insane number of grapes -- how can you be good at everything??? Our favs were the rose -- honestly quite nice and not sweet -- and the Merlot, not my favorite varietal by a stretch, but they did a decent job with this one.
Hiking to the river was great -- bring decent walking/hiking shoes -- as was just wandering around the property. Salads we took from the restaurant on take out had phenomenally fresh greens -- impressive! We did dinner in at Tendrils one night, the tasting menu with wine parings, which was scrumptious, but quite overpriced. What surprised us was that every single wine in their restaurant is their own. NO other vintners! Since their wines were mostly B+ - C- we were a bit taken aback. Service was A+.
But the ambience of the place really made up for the few shortcomings, and our second night out at the fun and very local color Idle Hour bar in Quincy, about a half hour away, was a hoot. Kobe burgers with special cheddar made by Oregon State college students were delicious, and the owner Rosy came up and made us feel right at home.
All in all, we highly recommend this away-from-it-all place. Peaches, the sweet orange tabby wandering the property was a special plus for us since we left our sweet orange tabby at home!
