Enjoyed Most: Everything! From check in to check out, hands down the best customer service I have ever experienced. Everyone we spoke to was unbelievably nice and warm they did everything to make our stay very special. The rooms are GORGEOUS! You really can't get a bad room, they all have breathtaking views of the vineyard. The patio opens right into the vines... it's perfect. Yet another great touch at Carter was when we were picked up in a golf cart right outside our room and whisked down to the tasting room at sunset. I cannot wait to go back!

Enjoyed Most: The amenities were great, the room was very nice and the staff was very friendly.
Other Comments: Shower never got hot water, spa water was foaming, they put us right next to another guest, even though there were maybe 6 guests in the entire property and you get no free tastings at the winery even though we had to pay a "resort fee".
