My wife and I never went to a bed and breakfast before. We normally travel to large hotels like Hilton and Marriott. However, we were both delighted that we mad the choice to try this B&B. The inn and the rooms were fantastic: very well appointed, the whirlpool tub was a nice way to relax after our first day of driving in heavy traffic from the Philly area (about 3 hours).Upon our arrival, we were greeted at our car by Chris the owner. He showed us directly to our room and explained how everything works. He then introduced us to his wife Erika, who sat with us on their beautiful deck over looking the vineyard as we enjoyed a little wine and cheese to help us unwind from the drive.
The next day we had a fantastic breakfast made by Chris and Erika, we relaxed for a bit and then went on the wine tour with Chris. During the drive, he explained all the different ways to make various wines and took us to 4 different wineries. After the first two, we enjoyed a very nice cheese, crackers and chocolate platter that he supplied. We returned to the inn for a little rest and then Chris took us to town for dinner. We had met another couple on the tour and we enjoyed having dinner with them. Erika picked us up after dinner and we returned to the inn for a nice relaxing whirlpool soak and a good nights rest.
We had another delicious breakfast the next day before leaving.If you have ever considered going to a B&B, choose this one and you will not be sorry.
Chris and Erika are excellent owner and hosts.
