My husband, friends, and I rented this house to celebrate my 30th birthday. We could not have been more pleased with our stay. There were nine of us total and we had plenty of room to spread out. The house layout is very open so you do not feel like you are on top of each other all the time, which was important for our size group. The location is completely private and serene. We dined al fresco one night on the deck with the heaters and fire pit going. It was perfection! Shawn was great communicating with me prior to our trip to make sure we had everything we needed. Upon our arrival he left us a welcome basket with coffee, chocolate, and a bottle of wine from the family vineyard! We got to meet his son-in-law as he was processing a few bottles of wine in the cellar. Unfortunately, we didn't get the chance to head down and watch the process. He did however leave a special birthday bottle on the door step that he just corked for us to enjoy! We loved every minute of our stay and wish we could stay longer. I would definitely recommend staying here if you have a large group.
