My husband and I stayed over the Queens Birthday Long weekend. The rooms have a very cottage/bed and breakfast feel, great for couples on a weekend getaway. Clean, have a heater + sitting area. Adequate parking. Ideally try to check in before 8pm to catch the host. Central to a lot of wineries. The host was wonderful and friendly. Breakfast was serviced in a common room, with the owner greeting you every morning and personally baking breakfast + leaving little baked treats in your room each day. There's a small pool next to the common area.

The property is beautiful, with white roses and gorgeous homestead. The place is homely, warm and welcoming. The owner Donna is an exuberant hostess and went out of her way to make us feel welcome and give us a great stay. Highly recommended.
