    Amazing and beautiful scenery and property

    The service and property are the best we've seen in southern California we really enjoyed our stay and it's such beautiful scenery that you must stay at this hotel the food was delicious and they even have a car to take you where ever you want to go so you don't have to worry about driving after an all day wine tasting. The concierge will set up tours for you and give you advice on which placeset to visit while you are there a 5 star hotel hands down
