Adjoining a vineyard owned by our hosts, this standalone unit has nearly everything you would want: minifridge, hair dryer, dishes, utensils, TV, blow dryer, umbrella, iron, ironing board, great wi-fi with cable connection, and microwave. It would be suitable for a longer stay. The continental breakfast was on the counter and in the fridge when we arrived. We had a brief conversation with one of the owners, who was working in his restaurant not far away; their winery produces around 700 cases per year, with growth in their plans.
The unit is clean, roomy, and convenient to the town and other wineries in the area. We were there only for the night and did not have a chance to visit with the owners or other guests, as the breakfasts are taken inside the individual units.
