Mitas Hill Vineyard

This place is amazing.  The house has old style charm with all the amenities you need.  The staff is super friendly and the breakfast was out of this world. We stayed in the desert rose room and the bed was super comfortable.  The grounds are also amazing with lush trees and plenty of room to roam or sit and have a glass wine or a cup of coffee.   I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a first class B&B.  It's close to downtown McKinney and they can even host events.
