David and Belinda's place was way more than we ever expected. We came in later than we thought and still were able to easily find the place at dusk. The beautiful rolling hills and views were breathtaking. We enjoyed walking the property and felt at home. Although our schedules didn't allow much time for visiting we were impressed with the little special things that were provided, i.e. Keirig coffees, teas, hot cocoa, plenty of chilled water, and yummy Kashi bars. The king sized bed was very comfy and our son slept great in the other room in the single bed. We definitely would stay here again if we had the chance. We give Scenic Ridge Suite in the Country 5 stars!! Thanks Dave and Belinda!!

We had an amazing time staying with David and Belinda. The accommodations were spectacular. They made sure that the room was outfitted for complete comfort. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. It was clean and there were leaflets and booklets about local items of interest in the room. If we had questions, they were answered quickly. They took us on a tour of the property as well as spoke with us each morning and gave suggestions for local wineries that were fantastic. This couple is kind and generous. The time spent interacting with the chickens and Misty, the horse, made our party very happy. We look forward to staying with them again when we visit the area next. You couldn't ask for better hosts or lodging.

Everything exactly as stated. Marvelous view and incredible gourmet restaurant (open on weekends) called Elements walking distance from the house. Certainly recommended if you're in this area.

My wife, our son, and myself have really enjoyed our home and welcome sharing it with others. I work full time and my wife has been able to stay at home to raise our son and care for our property. We enjoy our home church family, working outside, playing board games, video games, horseback riding (her), motorcycle riding (him) and travelling when we get a chance. We have used Airbnb on several occasions. Our experiences have always left us wanting to do it again.
