A grand surprise

I have had two glowing recommendations for the Farmhouse. However, I am upping the 5 to a 10: excellent in every way. The ambiance, the staff , the food, the wine ,the accommodations, and the naturally beautiful setting provided a memorable experience. Thank you.

Staff was very welcoming, informative, generous and kind. Rooms and premises very clean and inviting. The breakfasts were wonderful and the personal attention by the Chef was a good added touch. Best Chocolate chip cookies ever. The complimentary wine and glasses are a very good idea. We hope to come back soon.

My wife and I just had a PHENOMENAL wedding at the Farmhouse!! The staff were very gracious and accommodating. The food was amazing!! The accommodations were incredible and spacious. We booked the whole Farmhouse and the Cottage for our guests. I really can't say enough about the staff! The wedding ceremony was elegantly decorated and the reception in the gazebo was a dream come true!!! Truly a memorable experience that exceeded all our expectations. Highly recommend for any occasion or event. We will definitely be back!


A great place to relax and enjoy vineyard views!

Sip wine on the porch and look out at the surrounding vineyard. A great place to relax with wonderful food and wine!


OMG Veritas Is Beautiful and Delicious!

5 on July 08, 2016

We stayed in the second floor Cornwall room and it was very tastefully decorated and the bed looked lumpy but was absolutely heavenly to sleep on. So many gracious and lovely people at this location...Patricia, Andrew, Chloe (owner family) were all delightful to share a glass of wine or conversation with. Chef Andrew can whip up some tasty dinners and breakfasts and they were beautifully served. Haven't been to many B&Bs that also include a cocktail hour. Almost hate to share how wonderful this place is, it just might end up even busier than it already is and I'm not sure I want to share it with anyone. Could have stayed forever. What a great addition to the B&B venues!! This location is truly a family affair and the love shines through with each and every detail. Great Job Veritas. Oh...and did I mention the wine was the best in the district...Goild Medal the Cuvee and Claret. Yum!!

Joel works with each guest to decide what best suits their appetite. He then takes his culinary expertise and wizardry in the kitchen to create anything from a simple soul-warming soup to a four-course meal paired with Veritas wines.
