The first thing to realize is that this is not an inn, as the name implies, but a bed and breakfast. As such, you will get an angry phone call if you don't check in by 6:00 pm, even though you're paying $350 a night and they've already charged your credit card two weeks before. With an inn, I expect to be able to show up when I want and have someone there. With the exception of breakfast and between 4:00 and 6:00 pm (and then only if someone is checking in), you should not expect to be able to get any service. the name really should be changed since it is inaccurate.
We stayed in Mountain. The room was fine, but pretty standard (even for places at lower price points than what they charge here). Good wifi, which was appreciated since we were both staying connected during this vacation. We did use the hottub one night and it is big enough for two to soak. Not having a way to get music outside was a miss - one of the portable clock radio/iPod players would have been a better choice than the stationary one.
The property, while nice enough, wasn't especially well located for the wineries that we wanted to visit, and restaurants aren't especially close. Breakfast each morning was excellent and plenty of food. There is only one option, so make sure to discuss dietary restrictions in advance. Good tea selection in addition to coffee. Instead of bottled water, a reusable carafe is filled with filtered water and provided in a mini-fridge.
Probably would not stay here again.
