We arrived for a wine tasting and were greeted with a warm welcome by Valerie. The ambiance was beautiful with many quaint seating areas to choose from. Valerie went over all the wines with us. The ones we chose were all terrific. What a wonderful Gem this winery is along shores of Lake Huron I will definitely be returning when friends come to visit. Thank you Valerie for your outstanding customer service

Hotel's Favourite
We just finished a 4 day quilting retreat at Hessenland. It was the best retreat ever! The food was gourmet at every meal. The room had lots of light and ample space, and electricity. The staff was outstanding - easy to work with, responsive, nice. Everyone felt it was the best retreat location and service they have every experienced. Thank you!

We had a small family gathering over three nights requiring three rooms. We found the staff and owners to be very friendly and co-operative. The rooms were comfortable, but perhaps a little quirky, for example there were no bedside tables in the Tower Suite. The Tower Suite proved to be ideal for gatherings of our group. The housekeeping service was a little spotty, some items not being attended to and an oversupply of others. We had breakfast in the restaurant three times and dinner twice. The second dinner was the Mongolian Grill which was an excellent dinner that is a monthly summertime event that is very popular with locals. While the food was OK, the restaurant was almost empty on each of the other occasions we ate there, suggesting that many residents chose to eat elsewhere. The grounds are quite extensive and we made use of the pool and visited the winery. Overall, it is a pleasant family run resort which could maybe benefit from a little fine tuning, which will surely occur over time.

Staff were knowledgeable, helpful and kind. Food was delicious. Beds very comfortable. My husband loved the pillows so much he ordered one! The setting is lovely especially the beautiful sunsets. Also enjoyed the art and craft show in the lobby

Everything was enjoyable and the breakfast service in the restaurant and dinner in the vineyard was great. The inn/hotel accommodations are starting to show their age and future updating should be considered. The accommodations were clean.

It's an interesting site including the expansive grounds that serve their wedding package business - and with the backdrop of the winery and farm areas. The lake is just a few minutes away. The service was on point, and friendly. The signature dining options in the on site restaurant were excellent, and the wine made on site was very good. They offer wine tastings in the dining room/bar area, and retail on site. (We brought a few bottles home). We had a normal room that was quaint and clean, but ready for a bit of upgrading. All in all, we enjoyed our getaway, and would/will return.

Wonderful wedding, accommodations were very nice, food for the wedding was great, however the Sunday morning breakfast was cold and very unappetizing. The staff went out of their way to provide great service.

This place is a hidden gem! The pricing is very fair and close to Bayfield and Grad bend. I had called and asked for an early check is since we were coming from far away and they kindly let us check in much sooner. The staff were all very nice overtime. We had a terrace room ( I believe room #2) It was a nice clean room with a fireplace and a terrace with a nice seating area. Also these rooms have access to the pool from the terrace. The inn also has a nice restaurant where we had dinner and breakfast.

The rooms are basic, a little tired, but certainly very clean. The mattress' were comfortable enough, the pillows were fine, although I always bring my own when travelling by car. The staff are very helpful and courteous, the grounds are lovely and well kept. We did not eat in the restaurant, but did partake in a wine tasting at Schatz Winery that we enjoyed enough to buy several bottles. Will definitely stay here again.
