We stayed with another couple. The accommodation is roomy and plenty of room for 2 couples. It was too hot to enjoy the outside of the property but the a/c inside was very nice. Ken was kind enough to call ahead and find out how far away we were so he could put the a/c on for us which was greatly appreciated. Ken and Susie are friendly and helpful.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Berenbell. The cottage is very well maintained and has spectacular views. The hosts were extremely accommodating of our anticipated late arrival. The breakfast muffins are worth the stay alone (delicious!). Will definitely be back!

Highly recomend

Pros: The views!
Cons: The creaky floor upstairs.
Location: Great cafes, restaurants, wineries and a brewery.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at Berenbell. The accommodation was cosy and spacious. There were lovely outdoor areas to enjoy a wine and the magnificent view of the Mountains. The property was spotlessly clean and the guests supplies were very generous. We would definitely return to Berenbell and highly recommend it to other travelers.

Cosy Cottage in amongst the vineyards

Pros: The atmosphere with the fire going at night and the view over the Brokenback range
Location: Amongst many excellent vineyards and restaurants
We loved the atmosphere in these cute cottages. Open fire with a view across the vineyards to the Brokenback mountain range.
