LOVED THE STAY, GREAT HOSTS, BRILLIANT VIEWS. The location...the serenity of it all and the lovely hosts...what more could one ask for on a getaway from the city and a great base to explore the Clare Valley from. On a clear night, the sky looks surreal and it is possible to see a shgotting star or two.  Ranjan (AU) 9.2 points 3/1/2017
