Casa Encinares is a B&B in the relatively new Mexican wine country. It has many things going for it, but what stood out the most were the people and their hospitality!
We stayed here one night in December- I really wish we had more time. We didn't want to deal with driving in Mexico so we took a bus to Ensenada from the US border, and then Arturo picked us up from the Ensenada bus station. We were hungry so he took us for tacos first (mm!), and then we got to Casa Encinares late at night. The stars were beautiful! Actually, the entire B&B was beautiful- lots of trees around, and it has kind of a log cabin feel. Breakfast the next day was delicious, and then we went on a wine and cheese and food bonanza with Arturo and friends that was amazingly fun (three wineries + an early dinner), before Steve drove us back to the bus station.
We were two couples and we got 2 rooms next to each other. They were pretty much cabins- don't come expecting a luxury hotel experience or anything. It did get pretty cold at night and we ended up trying out the wood stove the next morning (although actually it was a bit warmer outside). Also, no wifi and no cell reception, except AT&T service on the hill.
We all had a ton of fun and wished we could stay longer. My boyfriend can't even metabolize alcohol and he had fun. Arturo and co really made us feel like part of the family... so friendly and hospitable, it's impossible not to make new friends!
