Recently spent a wonderful weekend celebrating my birthday with a stay at Wiss House. It's a great central location for exploring the beautiful Scenic Rim or a welcoming and relaxing place to rest and soak up the country air. We made new friends over a shared gourmet dinner in a stunning dining room. Planning a return soon.
