gorgeous view. Didn’t interact with a single person throughout my stay. Was left to my own devices. Lisa was great at communicating with me regarding my checkin. Loved the whole process. Was in the area for a wedding and this room was definitely much nicer than the hotels others were staying in.

LOVED this place! If you prefer 5* hotels this is not for you, but if you like feeling like you're in the middle of nowhere with views to the horizon and vineyards on your doorstep...go here! Lisa was a fantastic host too, really helpful and accommodating. We'll definitely be back!
