Wonderful location for exploring a great wine region. The setting is just like a park. Comfortable with the all the conveniences. Independence is a gem with a small historic old town with nice restaurants, bakeries, antique stores. Nearby biking trail is top notch. Would definitely go again!

This is a beautiful place. The outdoor deck and long lawn down to the river are lovely. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely appointed. We loved the little town of Independence too.

Susan and Joe are the ideal hosts: thoughtful, accessible and helpful. They really put a lot of thought in ensuring the space is equipped for you to relax and just enjoy the scenery. Easy accessibility to navigate the rest of the wine country, waterfalls, gardens, etc. I highly recommend this place to others looking to enjoy some downtime in a natural setting.
