“Perfect choice for relaxing vacation stay”
Reviewed 19 September 2012

We were in Israel for a family wedding, unhappy with the limited hotel options in the area. Smadar is the perfect alternative to overpriced hotels, typical B&B. The rooms are large, modern, well furnished, homey without feeling like you are staying with your parents.

i just loved this place! they have it spot on and reminded me of an Italian Agriturisimo. The rooms are spacious and perfectly rustic, the communal areas are beautifully kept, clean and the smell of the jasmin bushes is wonderful. Breakfast is great a lovely choice and the little pastries made by the owner are a deiight. Its not often i would give a place 5 stars but this hidden jem ticks all the boxes. The bed was comfy i had the best nights sleep, so peaceful. The little town is perfect too with boutiques, shops and bars. One thing to note, the rooms are not serviced but i personally like to come back to my room just as i left it!

Room Tip: they all look lovely! only 4 rooms its a family run b&b

Zichron Ya’cov is a charming town and what better way to experience it than to stay in the heart of the old section of town in a small inn owned and operated by a 4th generation family.

Smadar Inn & Winery has a winning formula. They offer four large eclectically furnished distinctive rooms with modern large bathrooms, delectable breakfasts, free wifi, swimming pool, hot tub, and a quiet location within easy walking distance of the old town. It’s really very comfortable.

But what makes it extra special is the opportunity to sit and talk with Esther, Mote and their daughter – to hear their stories and listen to their perspectives. It’s this kind of opportunity for connection with Israelis that we seek when we travel. I wouldn’t have wanted to miss Mote, with a twinkle in his eye when he tells us his daughter has completed her military service and wants to learn the winery business. And we had the opportunity to personally thank Esther who tried to help us months in advance when we couldn’t purchase Caesarea concert tickets on-line with our U.S. credit card.

The breakfast table is set with a selection of foods, fresh bread and juice. Mote took to heart Harvey’s lactose intolerance and offered a number of firm goat cheeses that he can eat. There was also fresh cutup veggies in olive oil, hummus, babaganoush, yogurt, tuna fish, assorted smoked fish, olives and mozzarella cheese. And then Mote offered to make us eggs any way we like! What a feast. We had to watch ourselves so we didn’t over eat!

Smadar Inn is a great choice for touring the area. I had a list of possibilities that would have easily filled a week. After a day exploring, it was a comfortable inn to relax and refresh before taking the easy walk to numerous dinner options.

We booked directly through email: smadar@smadar-inn.com

Very pleasant staff and new rooms near the hot tub and enclosed pool. You have breakfast in the winery tasting room, mostly omelets and coffee and juice with some Israeli veggies and cheese. The pedestrian street is just steps away, full of boutiques and art galleries and museums. The beds were comfortable, the climate control worked, the bath was large, and there was a DVD/TV on the wall. I don't remember whether there was a phone (we used our cell as most do these days), but the wifi was free. We had tried twice to contact them through their website, which doesn't have prices or a way to check available dates, and messages for them on the website didn't seem to get through (they're planning to change webmasters and fix it) so feel free to call them (their English is very good) - tourists avoid a 16% tax paid by Israelis. Rooms were about $180/night and included a free bottle of their wine and some home baked cookies in the room. A very relaxing base for visiting the scenic town, which is just far enough north of Tel Aviv for people to come here for weekend visits to feel like they were on "vacation."

Room Tip: There are only four rooms, so you might have a choice to look at. All are around a small courtyard b...
