Great hosts made this a special experience. The full breakfasts were excellent. For a B&B, this rates near the top. This was close to a winery we had pre-booked for a tour (Anne Aime). Jack suggested we dine at Bistro Maison, because we asked for a special gourmet restaurant. This restaurant was super and will be rated separately. Mattey House is off the highway so it was quiet. Bathrooms are small with tub and shower hard to maneuver. Queen bed was comfortable. Nice deck to sit on and sip wine. You need a car to go into town. Weather for mid-September was unusually hot and the sky was hazy and smoky from adjacent State forest fires. Would have been more enjoyable if the temperature was in the 70's and not around 90. Rooms have AC and it cools down considerably at night so AC wasn't required.
