"Great resort, top resort"

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Check in was fast, and it was quiet and clean. It felt like my own place. The bungalows were superb and very comfortable. Very cool. I'm definitely staying here whenever I'm in wine country.

"Great Getaway"

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

I love this place. Great for couples. Very romantic with beautiful views. Their vineyards are miles long for long walks. You can have some wine in their tasting room or enjoy a glass outside your patio with gorgeous views. Staff is extremely friendly and accommodate to your needs.

“The perfect everything!”

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Perfect luxurious rooms, perfect views, perfect staff, perfect everything! My husband and I stayed here for our 10 year anniversary. Let me start by saying everything was so perfect that we stayed an extra night. From the moment you check in and have the lobby door opened for you by Ryan and Ms. Megan starts treating you like royalty to the moment you leave, I swear you will never have a better stay anywhere else. At least that is how we felt. This is truly a hidden gem. I have to say that Ms. Megan was by far the absolute best! She was not only amazingly accommodating but she went above and beyond to make us feel like we were royalty for our anniversary. She had balloons and chocolate waiting in our suite! Ryan was also an absolute gentlemen and was extremely helpful. We are definitely going to stay here for our future anniversaries and whenever we can. Thank you Carter Estates and staff for making our 10 yr. Anniversary the best!

"Excellent accomodations"

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My wife and I had an event in Murrietta to attend. We are not wine drinkers at all,but we loved this place. Very clean. Controlled access to the parking lot as well as the rooms. Each room is very large with a huge bathroom.King size bed was very high quality and very comfortable. Great view of the vineyard. Huge deep bath tub,tankless water heater so more than enough hot water to fill the tub and have a nice hot bubble bath. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We booked directly with them so they gave us a free bottle of wine. Can't say enough. Can't wait to return. They have earned a great customer. Best part was the price. VERY reasonable.

"Luxurious room with vineyard views"

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

As a birthday surprise, I took my wife to the Vineyard Rose Restaurant, across the street from Carter Estates at sister resort South Coast Winery and resort. Then we overnighted in a King Suite at Carter Estates. There was a personal note in the room wishing my wife a happy birthday and wishing us both a good stay. The room was more like a luxury apartment... very roomy with nice appointments like a Keurig coffee maker with plenty of Keurig cups, a fireplace that turns on with a button, a huge bathroom with two sinks, two counters, a bathtub for two, and a roomy shower with two shower heads. The best part was a wide expanse of windows that opened up to a vineyard right outside the room, and in the morning there were hot air balloons framed in the windows.

"Best location possible, quite, luxurious, a respectable fancy get-away"

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

we stumbled across this little gem by accident, and we live in Temecula. I just never knew they had "bungalows" on the winery. Anyway, the rooms are like little villas on the vineyard, walk out to amazing views no matter which side you are on, though i prefer the sunset side...unless you plan to be out past sunset, then the...

"Not even a wine drinker"

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

My wife is the one who enjoys wine, while I'm completely anti anything alcoholic. Consequently, it may seem a little odd to make a winery based facility the location we'd enjoy as a getaway. Both of us being school employees affords us the same 2 weeks off, but we were only going to salvage 2 little ol' nights stay somewhere...

"I can wake up to these views everyday"

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This place deserves all the praise it gets on this site. An absolute gem. The service was the best we received in California and the room was impeccable. It's a new hotel, not even a year old, so you can tell that everything is up to date and new. We got a bungalow, room 3062, and it was spacious with...

This was a very great experience. My wife and I stayed here after going wine tasting in Temecula. We got the 2 bedroom because we had another couple with us. The staff was great and the rooms were amazing. The views in the back are wonderful. We will definitely stay here again.

“Beautiful Carter Estate Immaculate Beautifully decorated rooms.”

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Everything is Beautiful -- the grounds, the decorating of the rooms: immaculate, fresh, clean and totally enjoyable. Private patio outside each room was so cool to have coffee in the morning and a glass of wine at night. Did not experience the restaurant or the pool on the grounds; however, we will the next time we stay.

Highly recommend for short or long stay.

Green Features: The one thing we were really impressed about was the card insert for controlling the lights and turning them on and off... very nice convenient feature. Also the soaking tub as well as a large accommodating shower and private toilet area .
