During the fall & spring months, weather can be variable. We suggest confirming weather forecasts the day before your departure as it can be very warm, cool and rainy, or anywhere in between. Winters in Wine Country tend to have evening temperatures just above freezing, with daytime highs hovering around 50 degrees. Rain is typical, as are foggy and overcast days.

We take pleasure in offering a swimming pool for your exclusive enjoyment, which is seasonally heated from April 15th to November 15th. During the winter months, we are pleased to provide the option of heating the pool upon request, subject to an additional fee.
