We made reservations at the Wine Country Inn after deciding to take a road trip to Palisade to enjoy wine country. We based our reservation from the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor of the Wine Country Inn over the last few months. I was a bit skeptical, as reviews about a year ago were not spectacular. Perhaps there is new management?
When we arrived we were happy to learn that we could check in a couple of hours early. We stayed in the adjoining building behind the main hotel. We found desk staff to be friendly and helpful as we asked questions about touring wine country. Our room was a double queen, as four of us were staying. Beds were very comfortable. Our room had a fridge with freezer, coffeemaker, and microwave. A nice touch were the wine glasses and bottle opener. The bathroom was surprisingly spacious. The shower had plenty of hot water and good water pressure. Our room and bathroom were immaculately clean!
The big surprise was our breakfast buffet, which was included in our room price. The offering was quite large, fresh and hot. There were pancakes, a scrambled egg dish, fried potatoes, oatmeal, granola and other cereals, bagels, a delicious fresh-from-scratch homemade pastry, fresh fruit (including succulent Palisade peaches), juice, coffee and assorted teas. I know I'm leaving some things out, but the buffet was serviced constantly as fresh food was brought out. This meal alone would have been well worth the price had we bought it elsewhere.
We didn't get a chance to do the wine tasting that goes from 5-6PM daily. We did buy wine from the Grande River Vineyards on property, as well as a bottle from the Inn gift shop. I highly recommend the Sauvignon Blanc, priced at just $11.99 a bottle.
We noticed that the grounds were continuously being maintained and cleaned. We found the entire staff to be friendly. Just off of I-70, the view was incredible from the Inn which was surrounded by a vineyard with a backdrop of the valley and the mountains.
