Smack dab in the middle of the vineyards with gorgeous views. 2 fireplaces and goats
Great wine! Great people! and goats. What else could a couple ask for on a spring weekend getaway? How about beautiful accommodations and organic jam on an English muffin every morning. That's what we received at Hartley Farms. Barbara and Dan are gracious hosts who went out of their way to please us. We arrived late at night on the Friday due to brake failure in Van Nuys but they were there to greet us when we arrived and led us up the little hill of a driveway to our room. Our room was spacious with a vast view of the vineyards around us. The furnishings were lovely. There are 2 fireplaces, one inside one outside with comfortable couches in front of each. There is a shared Living/Kitchen area. There is no stove or burners but there is a microwave, a small refrigerator, a toaster, a Keurig coffee maker and a sink. We shared this area with the couple in the only other room. All this and there are goats and two lovely children to play with. My wife played with the goats, I played with the kids. The owners are just down the hill and delivered fresh bread and their own homemade organic jams early each morning. Of course, we were smack dab in the middle of 100's of wineries, so it sure is the location, location, location to be. If you like wine. We do and it was ZinFest weekend so we had a blast. On our last night, Barb and joined us for some wine and a little whiskey tasting and they showed us around the property (they do weddings, too!). We slept like babies. The next day we were off with a hug and a promise to return. Thank you so much for a lovely weekend. We are ready to come back.
