Beautiful and unique. Amazing breakfasts - Tim is quite a cook! - with great stories to boot. The furnishings and rooms are on the older side but very comfortable and spacious. Grounds are expansive and fascinating to explore - from the vintage truck (which Tim will drive you around in), the sculptor/artist in residence, the barn with wine-making equipment and pieces of art, and all the little collectibles scattered about the place - we enjoyed our stay very much. And we loved the resident dog. A funky, artsy, chilled-out place to relax in wine country.
