What People Are Saying
“Simply, the best family vacation ever.”
“Our meals were delicious, featuring 5-star cuisine, often accompanied by amazing wines.”
“…nightly bonfires and fabulous bartenders who took care of us each night.”
“The most unique and memorable part of the vacation though was the dining experience.”
The most unique and memorable part of the vacation though was the dining experience. The meals were incredible – delicious, abundant, healthy & local (I must have gained at least 5 lbs.). Most of the ingredients actually came from the farm, which was eye opening for my urban nieces. I especially appreciated the gluten free, dairy free, egg free, coffee cake which was made daily and always the first thing to go – Thanks ‘Chef R’.
The wine tastings and vineyard tours were also a highlight, as we learned so much about wine (growing, making & drinking it), as well as the Adirondack culture and surrounding landscape. It really made us fall in love with the place and we could do it all together, which was the best! Lastly, the RH owners, associates and staff were all so kind, personable and attentive. This Farm to Stay establishment is one of a kind and a place we will definitely return! A.H.
“Nightly s’mores at the tasting barn with a cocktail from the bar was a great way to end the evenings.”
“…exemplary management reflecting hospitality at its best.”
We spent the two weeks: relaxing on the privately staffed beach, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, fishing, playing tennis, basketball, cornhole, biking, hiking, exploring trails, wine tasting and much more. We also took the Essex ferry to Burlington, VT for a day of shopping and sightseeing. If you are looking for a vineyard, farm, simple yet luxurious oasis experience on Lake Champlain with great food and wine, and the best of staff, look no further. L.B.
“In addition to all of the activities, we were treated to amazing farm fresh food…”
“The food, setting, and conversation all come together to create a once in a lifetime experience.”
We cooked daily breakfasts of farm fresh eggs and bacon. One morning, we used homemade sourdough bread, farm fresh full fat milk, and Rolling Hills Estate Winery made maple syrup to make French toast that was absolutely amazing. There are also fresh bakery goods for breakfast each morning at the main barn.
Saturday night dinner is not to be missed! The food, setting, and conversation all come together to create a once in a lifetime experience.
Perfect place to take a step back, slow down, and relax! S.B.
“My kids spent their days fishing and riding bikes.”
“…every single staff member was unbelievable! Beyond friendly and bent over backwards in every way”
“…everyone who went said they can’t wait for next year! Just an awesome time.”
Accommodations were quite spacious and top notch. Rustic luxury.
Thanks very much to the owners who did a great job making Rolling Hills into a special lakeside retreat. This is a hidden gem and hopefully it stays that way. M.R.
“… if you think the service at the Four Seasons is great you have not been to RHEW.”
“The hosts and the entire staff was warm, friendly, and accommodating and the surroundings were gorgeous.”
“Nothing could beat the lake activities, s’mores by the fire pit, spectacular sunsets over the vineyard…”
“This slice of heaven will have you floating on clouds with a lovely staff and owners who truly care about your experience…”
You may ask what you can cook, and the answer is the freshest from Rolling Hills own farm. This includes vegetables and protein. Beef, pork, lamb, and more. Fresh greens, cucumbers, radishes, and more. You can even get farm fresh milk right from their own cows. SO GOOD!
I highly recommend a stay at Rolling Hills. Westport is a cute town with a golf course, a marina, a yacht club, and a smattering of restaurants. You will also find great hiking, waterfalls, swimming holes, white water rafting, and a whole lot more to explore within a drive. And, Burlington, Vt. is about an hour away and there are a ton of excellent restaurants there as well as great shopping. T.G.
“…had the privilege of staying on this magnificent property for three weeks this summer. The team has put together an experience like no other…”
“The five-course, gourmet meal not only redefined farm-to-table, it proved that the head chef is, without a doubt, the Thomas Keller of the Adirondacks.”
The days were filled with forest hikes, swimming in the sparkling waters of Lake Champlain, a bounty of farm fresh food and service rivaling the world’s best hotels. Each night brought a gift of blissful sleep, thanks to the fresh mountain air and one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever experienced.
The Chef’s Dinner was an unexpected highlight. The five-course, gourmet meal not only redefined farm-to-table, it proved that the head chef is, without a doubt, the Thomas Keller of the Adirondacks.
How to choose my farm favorite? Was it relaxing on the expansive beach with my toes in the lake, feeling the Adirondack breeze on my private, screened-in porch, strolling the vineyard at sunset, sipping a glass of wine at the fire pit? I’ll just have to go back again to decide!
A huge thank you to Dan who welcomed me with attentive, efficient service and a warm smile. Thank you to JP and the entire beach team for handling the paddle boards, kayaks, beach chairs, umbrellas and, of course, the refreshing beach beverages. You all helped make Rolling Hills Estate Winery one of my best vacations. B.L.
“With only a smaller amount of homes available, we felt so fortunate to have gotten to stay at this magnificent property and so many of our friends tried to get a reservation, but the waiting list was quite long.”
The staff is so friendly and attentive, and you really get to enjoy the local flavor of being in a country paradise. Their meat and farm-fresh vegetables are so fresh, the eggs and milk from their farm was delicious and it seems as if they have thought of every detail to make your stay at Rolling Hills just perfect. With only a smaller amount of homes available, we felt so fortunate to have gotten to stay at this magnificent property and so many of our friends tried to get a reservation, but the waiting list was quite long. Their bar in the huge main barn was country perfection and their choices of wine and liquor was great! I found some of my new favorite spirits I never knew existed. The world class chef dinner was one of the best I have ever had.
Thank you to the Rolling Hills Estate Winery team for making our stay there one we will never forget. We can’t wait to come back! L.D.
“The accommodations were lovely, the staff members could not have been nicer and were so very enthusiastic and helpful.”
“The homes were impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. Rustic luxury perfection! I couldn’t believe how spacious they were.”
The homes were impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. Rustic luxury perfection! I couldn’t believe how spacious they were. You could easily fit three families there. We loved grabbing fresh produce every morning from their farm and making our own breakfast. You get fresh eggs, milk, beef, pork, lamb, vegetables every day to cook/barbecue at your own home. S’mores by the campfire every night were of course my kids favorite. My kids absolutely loved spending time with the farm animals. They even did farm chores in the morning picking the eggs from the chicken coop and feeding the animals. I mean wow, what a truly amazing experience that was!
The private beach was beautiful. We did boating, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding the list goes on and on. We have three boys ages 15, 6 and 4 and everyone could find something they could enjoy. We went on beautiful hikes that are set only few minutes away. The waterfall hike was absolutely breathtaking! The views were magnificent, overlooking the spectacular Lake Champlain. The wine tour and tasting was top-notch and introduced some unbelievably beautiful-tasting wines from upstate NY.
The staff was incredible top to bottom. As for the staff….absolutely incredible!!! Courteous, prompt, and pristine. The highlight of the week was undoubtedly the Saturday evening 5-course dinner. You will not get a better experience anywhere!!! All I can say is that we cannot wait to go back! D.V.

With your townhome lease, you enjoy a home away from home right on an Estate Winery, a large private beach on Lake Champlain, a private Tasting Barn, farm fresh food grown and raised right on property and much more! Rather than the overreach of a hotel or resort, you can enjoy much more privacy and freedom with family and friends.

Do the townhomes have air conditioning?
We can’t say there won’t be an occasional hot night, so we do provide freestanding AC units that can be delivered
and installed to your townhome. Due to the cooler evenings in the North Country, we generally do not need air conditioning units. All rooms and porches have ceiling fans and we provide portable window fans.
Is there a bar at RHEW?
Yes! We are a NYS-licensed Farm Winery, and our well-stocked, bar features the best wines that New York State has to offer, as well as a large selection of unique crafted wine, spirits, beer, and ciders all available for your enjoyment.

We provide our Member Guests with assorted cuts of meat, as well as an assortment of seasonal vegetables, fresh herbs, milk, and eggs, all grown and raised on property. We like to call it an UNLIMITED CSA!
Our Saturday evening chef-prepared farm-to-table five-course dinner is the highlight for our Guests and their families. Our Sommelier is present for wine pairings, and it is a night to remember! You will need to supplement and bring some items, including oils, condiments, pasta, bread, etc. A quick 12 minutes down the road is a TOPS supermarket, and there are farm stands scattered throughout the area. Kinney’s drug store is next to TOPS, should you need to grab any items/medication.
I sometimes like to go out to grab a cup of coffee…is there any place nearby?
Although we provide ground Adirondack Mountain coffee in your townhome and at our Tasting Barn during breakfast, there are some wonderful little coffee shops nearby – the Red Brick Cafe in Port Henry makes some of the best around.
