My wife and I stayed for a short, 2-day getaway. It was very nice and comfortable. I enjoyed the stay and hanging out at the winery. The room smelled a bit musty and wasn't as clean as it could have been but I enjoyed my stay anyway. The staff was very nice and accommodating. I enjoyed breakfast, starting out with muffins/fruit/cheese and ending with a surprise main course. It might be better to have a couple of selections for the main course in the event you don't like what's served but since I enjoy most foods, I thought they were good. I have enjoyed wine and cheese in the tasting room many times. The "free wine and cheese tray" that comes with the room each day is a cheaper version of what you'd get if you paid for it. It really doesn't provide enough cheese/crackers for 2 people. I'd rather pay a bit less for the room and purchase the better quality meat/cheese tray available in the tasting room. The robes in the closet were very nice.

Had an amazing time for our anniversary getaway. Wish there was a pool or spa but still had a wonderful time :)

Messina Hof is a little slice of heaven close to home. We loved our dinner at the Vintage House and breakfast was amazing too!

We enjoyed our stay at Messina Hof. The manager and her staff were friendly and very welcoming. We enjoyed a wine and cheese platter as well as a tour of the vineyard and winery as part of our stay. Then a lovely anniversary dinner at their restaurant. Our only criticism would be that the only coffee available in the restaurant and for breakfast was a strongly flavored coffee (like a hazelnut blend) - we don't care for flavored coffees and a pure Columbian or other plain coffee wasn't available. Another small thing was that the landscaping crew showed and began mowing and weedeating at about 7 am . We were arising early but if we'd wanted to sleep in that would not have been possible with the noise from the mowers.

They serve brunch on Sundays which happened to be our Anniversary. The food was better than the four stars rating but that was as high as I could pick on this system. The wines and wine & cheese bar was great, included with the room. The room was decorated with many interesting antiques. Will definitely come back again.

Everything about our stay was amazing! Really enjoyed our time there - only drawback - if you don't like a firm mattress, bring some sort of pad. Otherwise, 5 stars!

The staff is amazing at the Villa as well as the winery and restaurant. My visit was early spring, the room balcony would have used cleaned, otherwise wonderful experience.

This B&B is truly an experience. Nestled in the quiet country of Bryan, it offers romance and fun for anyone. The wine is great and the staff are divine. We will return when we need a quick trip to unwind.

The stay was so peaceful. We had a big breakfast each morning and then it was off to enjoy the hillcountry charm. A perfect escape.

This facility is very quiet with a friendly staff and well appointed rooms. While it was not the most affordable place we have ever stayed at, the tour of the winery, the beautiful decor with exceptional use of antiques in each room, the superb breakfast and the wine and cheese reception made our stay one of the best values for the money. I recommend this to anyone who would like to experience a touch of Tuscany without leaving the United States.
