Shelton Vineyard & Hampton Inn

Like most others, we thought the wine-tasting room in the hotel was a nice touch. Being that it’s 2 miles from the Shelton Vineyards, you get…Shelton Wines. Paying $5 for a tasting gives you 3 wines to pick. It was a relaxing and quaint environment but we did enjoy the two other couples in the room who were enjoying a bottle of Harvest Red.  You could tell they may have been in to their second bottle because the laughter was happening regularly.

As for the Hampton room – it was clean and had a fridge & microwave. The only slight downside was that the TV was a little small to see being how far it was from the King bed.  The patio was a nice touch as well. Actually had breakfast out there the following morning and it is surprisingly quiet being that close to the interstate.

I wish we’d taken more pictures of the actual vineyard as the grounds were beautiful.  They also had a restaurant on site, but seemed more fit for a nice dinner and we were there at lunch.  I would like to spend more time at this one the next time we are in Dobson, NC.
