Professionally Inspected & Certified


Perched on a knoll, overlooking manicured vineyards and the nearby hills, this country inn offers 24 individually decorated guest rooms and 5 luxury cottages. The Smiths used local antiques, family made quilts, fireplaces and balconies to create an atmosphere of unparalleled comfort. Most of the rooms are oriented to rural views, many overlooking nearby vineyards. Some rooms have patios, gracefully surrounded by lawns and privacy landscaping; others have intimate balconies; most are provided with fireplaces, useable year round. To extend the feeling of country tranquility you won't find a television in your room. The Inn has a beautiful heated swimming pool and hot whirlpool that have quickly become a social gathering spot for informal picnics and evening cocktails.

A great deal and comfort all in one.

4.8 on July 08, 2014

We spent the 4th of July weekend at Wine Country Inn. What a nice place. The rooms and beds were so comfortable. The Breakfast was so good! and wine with snacks in the evening. And don't forget that they offer a complimentary van trip to and from local destinations. We booked a tasting tour thru them and all our dinner reservations. When you factor all this into the room price.... WHAT A GREAT DEAL!

Great place to stay, Very relaxing. Food excellent, much better than our last stay.

I never wanted to leave!

Everything about our stay was excellent. The room was clean/relaxing/comfortable, the view was perfect, breakfast/happy hour were great and the service was second to none. I usually travel 40% of the time for work. As a result, I've become somewhat of a hotel snob. I can honestly say The Wine Country Inn exceeded every expectation I had. The wine tour was very informative and fun and the front desk assistance in shipping my wine made my life easy. I look forward to my next trip.

Perfect Wine Country Experience

Peaceful, quiet Inn. Perfect to escape the many tourists in the Wine Valley.

Enjoying Wine Country

4.8 on June 30, 2014

The Wine Country Inn was about as an enjoyable low-key stay as I can remember. It isn't luxurious but it is comfortable and fun. The staff were extremely amiable and helpful. The breakfast was outstanding and the property lovely. The room was comfortably appointed and a nice place to relax after a day of wine tasting and shopping. Recommended.

About the innkeepers

Jim and Lorinda Smith enjoy great food, great wine, traveling and a variety of sports. They are both avid cyclists. While Jim swims laps in the Inn's pool, Lorinda is out jogging the back roads close by. While Mike helps out answering the phones and taking reservations, Kelly is already helping Grandma Marge with decorating the rooms. It is truly a family affair!
