A Delightful 24 Hours

5 on April 20, 2017

We were part of a group of eight. From the time we arrived till we left it was a very enjoyable stay. The winery tour was fun and informative. We enjoyed sitting on the patio for the wine and cheese reception, and were treated with very good service. Our room was immaculate and full of lovely antiques. Dinner was not rushed. I must say the champagne breakfast served the best crepes I have ever had. And the ladies did an excellent service. I emailed Jean Butler that I had left my phone charger, I had an immediate reply that she was mailing it to me. It has arrived. That sealed our feeling that Messina Hoff is five star business. Thank You

R&R at the Villa

We stayed at the Villa during Texas A&M Family Weekend. This lovely place was a haven of peace and quiet. The room was well appointed. The antiques are lovely with an old world charm but never fear your free Wi-fi is near. We enjoyed dining at their vineyard restaurant. The food was exceptional. We visited the tasting room for a late night glass of wine with cheese which was included in our stay. We didn't get to go on the free vineyard tour but we hope to next year. I've already booked our return trip. Hurry don't miss out on this hidden gem in the heart of Bryan-College Station.

Loved it! Highly recommended!

The staff at the wine tasting bar, gift shop, and restaurant were superb, as were the accommodations and food. Will definitely go again!

Always a perfect weekend getaway!

The Villa at Messina Hof is a fantastic B&B that accommodates those who truly want to get away for a romantic weekend of peaceful relaxation, delicious food (during breakfast at the Villa & dinner at The Vintage House), and of course lots of Messina Hof wine! The wine tour and tasting (which is included with the stay) was fun & insightful. The Wine Bar (which is open until 11pm on Fridays & Saturdays) was another cozy venue to sample great wines & cheeses (a wine and cheese tasting is also included with the stay). The "Lancelot & Guinevere" suite, which has unique antique furnishings and a very large whirlpool tub, is the perfect respite after an activity-filled day. The staff were very friendly and helpful, always wanting to make our experience exceptional. My wife and I had our wedding ceremony & reception at Messina Hof, and we returned this trip for our 10 year anniversary! We didn't want to leave...

Loved it!

We spent two nights at the B&B, dined at the restaurant, took the tour, and enjoyed the wine bar. Can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff and the quality of the experience. It made for a lovely, romantic getaway and we can't wait to return! Highly recommended for wine lovers!

Messina Hof Winery and B & B

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Messina Hof Winery and B & B. We stayed in the Thomas Jefferson room and it was great. The winery was fun and we had dinner there as well. Overall, it was a great stay. I would highly recommend this winery and B & B.

Nice clean stay

Very clean. Well kept. Quiet. Did I mention it was clean? I felt comfortable walking in bare feet. Nice stay for our anniversary.

The Inn was neat in appearance and the entrance set the tone with simple, elegant furniture and appointments. The vouchers for the wine and cheese tasting were appreciated and the perfect set-up to enjoy our dinner to follow. Since this was a holiday special event, the dining was excellent in the on-site dining room overlooking the vineyard. The inn keeper made us feel welcome and this, our 2nd stay we discovered a new room with all the themes well done. The breakfast is outstanding, maintaining the aura that you are their only guests and the most important people in the world. A remarkable, hide-away almost ensuring a return visit. Sandie

Wonderful Time at the Winery!

"We had a good time during our stay thanks to the delicious chocolate turtles left in the room, the plate of cheeses at breakfast, and the great customer service of employees Maci and Alex." - Groom "I loved staying in one of the romantic, whirlpool rooms with so many windows! The shower was phenomenal!!! I looked forward to the multi-course breakfast, complete with mimosas, each morning, and I'm not even a morning person! I second what my husband said above about the extremely sweet and accommodating staff! I would definitely stay here again!" - Bride
