This property looked cute online, but.... It has paper thin walls. We heard every coming and going, conversation, and car/truck that drove by. Talk about no sleep! We also upgraded to a room with a fireplace - big mistake! The rooms smells like old gas stoves that stink. We were scared that we were going to soak that smell into our skin and clothes. The shower heads are from the 1950's, low, but work ok. The amenities in the bathrooms are 'Breck'....didn't know they still made that stuff.
As for the breakfast, these people have apparently not heard of the health movement. Our choices were full fat bagels with full fat cream cheese, full fat banana bread and then full fat muffins. They also cut up apples and oranges. Coffee or tea, with you guessed it...full fat milk. Not even a latte option which is so easy now. No cereal or yogurt or fresh berries. Virtually, no effort into breakfast. The inn also has a happy hour in which they serve sherry. Sherry?? In the middle of the wine country?? What is wrong with this picture?
The best thing about this inn is the location, but there are plenty of other options right around this one.
