Make it a point to stay here! Jean Butler, the Inn Keeper, will go above and beyond to make your stay enjoyable. You will meet the owners greeting guests in the tasting room. And if you are looking for a first class dining experience you need not look any further than The Vintage restaurant. This is a wonderful experience from the moment you check in!

Fantastic BnB attached to the winery. We went on a Monday and Tuesday and unfortunately the restaurant is closed both those days. Other than that, our stay was warm and inviting with a great biscuit & gravy breakfast. The wine store and bar were Lovely and we even had a voucher for a free glass of wine and cheese plate included in our stay as well as a tour of the winery. The room was very nicely appointed with a great balcony, only issue is that there many wasp nests everywhere and we could not sit out there at all! They were attacking the glass! Overall it was a beautiful stay with a relaxing environment and wonderful food ;-)

Perfect getaway

This gem of a place quietly sits away from the city bustle of college station and Bryan. The hospitality is warm and the rooms are all themed making it all a wonderful experience. The winery tour and tastings were great as well.

Peaceful, romantic retreat

We stayed in the Venus room. It has a gigantic marble bathtub and aromatic herbal bath grains are supplied! The furnishings are extraordinary. The wine and cheese was luscious. When we walked on the grounds we were surrounded by butterflies.

What are you waiting for?

Everyone enjoys the company of caring family. So I was pleased, as always, that the Bonarrigo family adds me to theirs. The inn is beautiful, of course, with pieces of history integrated neatly into its decor, both in the common areas and in each room. The people are beautiful; each person happy to be at an adult "Happiest Place On Earth" (sorry Walt!). The wines are legion and the environment of staying on the winery/vineyard is something you don't experience much in Texas or the South in general. Don't miss the winery tour, or the tasting, or the restaurant, for that matter.And don't dismiss the 5 star ratings across the board. I actually thought about and considered each one, comparing the inn against the top hotels and inns I've stayed in across the globe. Well done everyone. Though it's all of 10 minutes from College Station where I conduct my business, the extra 8 minutes of "commute" is completely irrelevant given the quiet, pastoral, picturesque friendliness of nestling into a cozy painting. Thank you, Messina Hof family!

Relaxing Stay at the Winery

We found all the facilities to be as advertised. The inn was one of the nicest we stayed in and it was very quiet. We slept well! The inn keeper was extremely polite and helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate and very tasty. We enjoyed wine tasting and the tour of the facility. The restaurant was most enjoyable with plenty of room between tables so it was peaceful and relaxing The menu offered something for everyone and the food was well prepared. The wait staff was helpful and professional. We will be coming back.

Another outstanding stay.

This was the second time my wife and I stayed at The Villa. We chose the Texas room this time. It was quite comfortable and the separate bedroom and tv room was a welcome change. We will be visiting again until we get a chance to stay in each room theme.
