Very Charming!

4.8 on April 21, 2016

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!


Amazing people

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.


Great getaway!

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.


A Wonderful Escape!

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.


Outstanding experience

4.4 on March 03, 2016

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.


Romantic, relaxing

Everything you need is conviently located on the property, no need to leave all weekend. The wine bar has great cheese trays. The full service restaurant is fabulous. Of course, excellent wine abounds.


Our anniversary stay at the MH Winery Villa

5 on February 26, 2016

We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet suite for two nights and enjoyed it thoroughly. The bedroom was nicely decorated, very romantic, and cozy. The oversized bathroom was awesome, as were the nice bathrobes that the Villa provides. Our breakfasts were incredible - quiche one morning and French toast the next - and in addition there was fresh fruit, juices, pastries, and plenty of coffee. Finally, we did eat one night at the restaurant on-site, and the food was exceptional. Can't even begin to describe the flavors and presentation - just beautiful. Everyone we met was friendly and very helpful - you really get the feeling you are staying with family! We plan on returning very soon!


Great Place

Perfect B&B for Anniversary

5 on February 09, 2016

We spent a few days for our anniversary at the Villa, everything was absolutely perfect. The entire staff was very attentive & delightful. Jean is an amazing host & I could not have asked for anything more to make our stay better. The food & wine is better than you could imagine!! We will definitely stay there again when our schedule allows!
