We stayed two nights and cannot lavish sufficient praise. The room (Beate suite) was spacious and well laid out. Everything you could possibly want was provided: fireplace, balcony, deep tub, huge shower stall, plenty of seating, enormous tub with bubble bath and (electronic) candle, lashings of hot water, bath robes, coffee maker, coffee, cream, bottled water, soda, snacks, DVD player and (a rarity today) plenty of lighting when you wanted it.
There are only five rooms on the property, which is set far enough from the (quiet) road that you hear nothing. The common room is equipped with a fireplace, a jigsaw puzzle to work on and a large assortment of books, games and DVDs. Snacks and wine served at 5:30 provided a perfect opportunity to socialize with our hosts and the other guests.
Breakfast was fantastic. Home-made breads and casseroles highlighted the meal which, because there can only be a maximum of five tables, was convivial and intimate.
Lucinda knows the area well and was always happy to recommend wineries and restaurants in the area. We visited several of her recommendations and were never disappointed.
All in all, this was a perfect get-away. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we have booked for New Year's eve. Lucinda is offering an irresistible package that includes accommodation, dinner and a murder mystery!
