I really enjoyed my time at Feather Hills last summer. I stayed on-site at the room they have for rent and the hospitality was second to none. Such a relaxing environment, with the nice pond providing a serene place to sip fantastic wine and soak in the sounds of the Shawnee Forest. Can't wait to visit again!
Great wine,wonderful backdrop to kick back and relax. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable.
