This is an old farmhouse converted into an inn. We've been to several, but this one had charm, good beds, and great guests. Everyone was friendly and ready for a chat. This must be the vibe that the innkeepers, Howard and Joan, give to the place. The breakfast was very good with a selection of eggs, yogurt, muffins and good strong coffee.
We drove in with our bicycles and managed to park them without too much damage. If you plan to take your bikes take the second entrance. That would be if the Inn is on your right. We almost took off the branches from the tree in the semi-circular driveway.
Regarding the rooms, we had #6 which was fine. We did not hear the other guests in their rooms and the air conditioner kept us nice and cool. The pillows smelled clean which can be a feat when many heads use them. The towels are clean and absorbant, the "Bee Kind" toiletries are quite good too. I would recommend that they add a makeup remover just so the white towels stay nice and white! . The small quibble was the shower head which trickled out water. However, we still managed to clean up.
Howard was helpful in giving us routes to ride and also where to find places to eat and vineyards to visit. Overall I would say this is a place to go back too even if a bit pricey.
