Peter & Phillip are model owners & hosts. Polite, kind, helpful, and generous with many thoughtful extras. The complementary afternoon wine & cheese was beautiful in its presentation and many afternoons Peter was so kind as to deliver it to our carriage house. They make their own wine and it's excellent. The breakfasts were fantastic and plentiful and we ate them wearing our cozy robes in our room. We enjoyed the privacy of the carriage house and found it to be very clean & comfortable. The main house is warm & welcoming and a good place to gather for conversation.
The only concern some people may have is the location. If you plan on spending a few nights dining in Yountville the drive back may be a bit far. We found great spots to eat in St. Helena & Calistoga so this was a non-issue for us.
Our four nights weren't enough...next time we'll certainly stay longer. Thanks again Peter & Phillip for your wonderful hospitality!
