We stayed in one of the king rooms (with spa) in the older wing of the lodge. Plenty of room - the cathedral ceiling probably accentuated the feeling of space. While these rooms have a kind of shared balcony, we enjoyed sitting out there in the mornings and evenings looking over the vines and enjoying the birdlife. I think one of the best things this place has going for it (apart from the very friendly and helpful staff) is the quality of the in-house dining. We didn't eat in the restaurant, but we did have excellent take-out pizza - a seriously great option on a rainy night after a hard day's wine tasting. We'll be back and will consider staying in one of the vineyard suites next time.
