My wife and I stayed just one but definitely will return. We arrived with 6 inches of new snow in a beautiful setting among the vineyards. We relaxed from the long trip in a spacious, very comfortable bedroom. Breakfast was amazing, two gourmet choices, prepared by the chef de cuisine! Chloe, the owner, was delightful and talked to us about growing up at Veritas. Our only disappointment was they do not serve dinner on weekdays in the winter.

Outstanding B&B

5 on March 27, 2014

My husband and I came here for our 25th anniversary. We were not disappointed. We love the B&B experience and this B&B is one of if not the best we have been to. What a warm and inviting atmosphere, and beautiful scenery. The breakfasts were truly delicious and the chocolate chip cookies were awesome!! We will definitely be doing dinner the next time we stay. Can't say enough about the staff, friendly, helpful and accommodating. Thanks so much to all!

An Incredible B&B

5 on March 13, 2014

My husband and I have stayed in many wonderful B&Bs on both the East and West cost during our 30+ year marriage. As seasoned veterans, and hopeless romantics, we always have high expectations, especially for Diamond Collection Properties. The Farm House at Veritas didn't disappoint! This beautiful old house, gorgeous surroundings and warm hosts/staff exceeded our expectations across the board. Each guest room is roomy and beautifully appointed, as are all of the common areas. Breakfast was incredible (can't wait to go back to have dinner!!) with a sweet or savory choice of delightful indulgences. We are very fortunate to be close by, and plan to make a habit of visiting the Farm House for special occasions and Winery events! M&S Smith

The Retreat - Ready to Return ASAP

5 on February 05, 2014

I live in the area and had gone to The Farmhouse for a few of the dinners which were spectacular. I kept thinking I should do a mini get-away and stay at the B&B but then decided to try the new fitness program they have called The Retreat at Veritas. A week of yoga and hiking with the addition of cooking classes, horseback riding, massages, wine education, fantastic meals, and more was basically a dream come true. I had a blast, met an amazing group of new friends, and came home feeling completely rejuvenated. I could go on and on but I honestly think you need to just go and check it out for yourself! I'm hoping to return at least once a year so maybe I'll see you there!

Wondeful Romantic Weekend

5 on December 10, 2013

My husband booked The Farmhouse as a surprise getaway for my birthday. It was an incredible 3 days and 2 nights - the Farmhouse itself is beautiful, warm and incredibly inviting. The setting is breathtaking and the inside feels like home - a very nice home at that! From the fire in the kitchen fireplace, to the views of the mountains and vineyards from our room, it was such a special place. Chloe helped make the weekend special by booking a horseback riding tour of the property (that she rode along and commentated for us!), suggesting we dine in the kitchen with the chef for dinner (which was a tremendous treat!), and leaving us a personal note after we had been out all day. The food was to die for - the chefs there are some of the best. Dinner was an event in itself, and breakfast was way beyond our expectations. The staff on hand were so lovely and helpful. The location is central to so many things yet offers so much right outside the door. Veritas has always been our favorite winery and now knowing what The Farmhouse has to offer is just icing on the cake. We will be back again. And again!
