Beautiful view and great location !
Wonderful family wine trail cabin
This is a perfect spot!! We had plenty of room for our party of 8. Everything was clean. The property was perfect, definitely wanted to stay longer. We will be back!!
The Firefly lodge was a great place to stay. I love the outdoors do the deers and buglers that joined us each was an added bonus. The winery tour was great. The Orlandini was our favorite. All the offering were awesome. Blue Sky was another favorite. If you like fresh farm to table restaurants the Yellow Moon is a must visit. Plan well for meals it is a few miles to the nearest stores. Would recommend.
Perfect Wine Getaway
Best views, and a great house to have a wine trail experience.
Beautiful property and great for events.
A hard review to write
Positives: responsive management, well maintained grounds, wrap around deck, fire pit, etc. Great for watching stars, deer, and fireflies.
Negatives: remote location, lack of wifi (needed to figure out things to do), no screens on windows, very dirty windows, etc.
Comments: placed was rented to "younger folks" prior to our visit. We found dirty serving spoons in dish washer, a small (single serving size) bottle of alcohol placed in the drain with the garbage disposal (shattered when we ran it), trash which not yet picked up (was picked up after arrival), and an adequate but less than expected level of interior cleanliness. To be clear, appliances, carpeting, hardwood and tile flooring, furniture, and bathrooms were adequately cleaned. Exhaust vents in bathrooms and duct work grates needed major cleaning. Some aspects of the lodge could use better maintenance ( screens put on windows, one window crank did not work properly, some window woodwork needed refinishing, etc.).
Overall an "average" rating assigned. With wifi and a little more maintenance (see above) this could easily be a 4 or 5 star rated rental.
