Great Find

The bed and breakfast was great! The breakfast was good. Champagne was a nice touch. The wine bar, the winery tour, and the vineyard was very nice. The on-site restaurant was just OK.

Happy happy happy anniversary

We got married at Messina Hof 9 years ago and decided it was time to return for our anniversary! We obviously have very fond memories of the winery and were excited to return and reminisce fun times from college and our wedding. Our stay was absolutely perfect. The room and bathroom were gorgeous with a balcony view of pretty much everything. We loved the port chocolates and bought two boxes to take with us in the gift shop. Breakfast was delicious. Jeanne was an amazing host. She was attentive, friendly and welcoming. Our stay included the delicious champagne breakfast, wine and cheese from the wine bar and a tour/tasting in the winery. The ladies working at the wine bar were also very friendly and we loved our tour with Michael. We had the pleasure of speaking with the Bonnerigos during our stay. Wonderful people! Thank you so much for a fun, relaxing stay and helping us build more wonderful memories at such a special place.

One of the best weekends ever.

A very peaceful and relaxing weekend. The restaurant was superb and our server Sarah was friendly and warm. She made us feel right at home. The walks along the lit pathway made the stress from our daily lives melt away. The wines were all so good. It was very hard to pick a favorite. Thanks for a great weekend. See you soon.

Wonderful Inn and Innkeeper

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for our daughter's graduation. The three rooms were very nice, quiet and well decorated. One of them, the Texas was able to accommodate 3 people. Breakfast each morning was hot and delicious...crepes one day and a sausage hash brown casserole the next. We enjoyed the included winery tour and cheese tray. Jean and her staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. They truly made us feel like family. We wonder when Jean sleeps because she was always around with a warm hello or suggestion on an activity. We will be back if we have reason to be in College Station!

romantic get away

Fun B & B!!

The room and the view was great. The property is beautiful. The only complaint would be they didn't replace the coffee and water when they did room service on Saturday. We enjoyed our stay and will book again.

Great food, great place, great people. The lighting at night is a bit harsh....but it is just the color temperature of the light bulbs...makes the place look cold.

Exceeds any expectations

We enjoyed everything about Messina Hof. The food and wines are excellent. The room was very well appointed and comfortable. The quiche for breakfast was outstanding, which we enjoyed with mimosas. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back!
