“I'd love to go back!”
Reviewed February 5, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We spent two nights there in January. The owner and farm manager were both very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed chatting with them both. Both nights we cooked out on the barbecue area built into the patio, drank wine, looked out over the vines, and watched the hills change colors as the sun went down. It was a very nice experience for a couple of city dwellers. The kitchen in the cottage was fully stocked with pots and pans, utensils, etc.

I wish we could have spend a few more days there.
