“116 5 star reviews, that kind of says it all”
Reviewed 23 September 2013 via mobile

It seems to me that any Hotel or B&B that has 116 five, well deserved, star reviews kind of deserves a sixth star. I think Trip Advisor will have to give a special medal for such an accomplishment. The hospitality is superb. The food is superb. The view is superb.

This was our first B&B experience as we have always been skeptical. We were shocked out how amazing the facility, location, hospitality and food were. Now we are worried to try another because it will be impossible to live up to these standards.

Steve and Gail set the standard for what a great B & B can be. The location and accommodation and wonderful, the amenities outstanding, and the food interesting and delectable. But more than any physical attributes, it's the spirit and friendliness of the owners that set the experience apart.
You have your privacy, but when you want advice or help, it's there. We'll be back.

This September my wife and I stayed with Gail and Steve for 2 nights. Without a word of a lie this was the nicest, friendliest B&B we have ever stayed in. The reception on the afternoon we arrived was warm and inviting. The room was well appointed with all the necessities, and the bonus was the saltwater pool which we immediately had to try out. The absolute high lite of each day though was the breakfast which consisted of 3 courses and all I can say is do not stuff yourself with the first course as the portions are generous. It had been a few years since we had been in the area and both Gail and Steve were very knowledgeable about the area - what to visit - where to eat etc. DO PASS UP THE OPPORTUNITY TO STAY HERE!!

Keeping it simple, this is the best B&B I have ever stayed at! This was our second time there and will keep on returning, everything was better than the first time. ( largely due to knowing our environment and being able to eat the amazing French toast again)

The only thing nicer than the stunning views and great local wines were the hosts Gail and Steve!!! Yes, everything you have read is true: stunning area, beautiful B&B and awesome hosts. Gail cooks a mean breakfast and Steve spins a good yarn.

My husband and I stayed here for five nights in August while on a kid-free vacation.

Steve and Gail are great hosts!

The breakfasts were incredible and super filling! Pretty much didn't need after these amazing breakfasts.

We stayed in the Ruby Room and it was nice and spacious, very clean and private.

I liked that this a very private bed and breakfast, with each of the four rooms having their own entrance.

The pool was clean, warm and relaxing and the day beds were amazing. Comfy and the best place to have a glass and wine and afternoon nap. The view is also incredible! Overlooking the lake and watching the sunset prior to dinner was amazing.

Each room also had a little bistro set right outside the room and we used this a lot for drinking coffee, having wine or snack.

We also used the BBQ two nights to cook up dinner.

In a great location to visit all of the wineries.

We hope to be back again!

Room Tip: Pick the Ruby Room. Nice and spacious and on the end.
