It’s not every day that you can enjoy all the benefits of a wonderful bed and breakfast, and a winery too! But that’s exactly what you get at Kite Hill Vineyards, Winery and B&B in Carbondale, Illinois.
Kite Hill is located on the Shawnee Wine Trail in southern Illinois, in a peaceful setting with a lake and acres of grapevines. Stay here and you can stroll through the vineyards before breakfast or watch the sun set while sipping wine on the patio. It’s relaxing—and a fun place to stay too. After all, how many bed and breakfasts include a wine tasting room?
The Kite Hill Winery produces more than a dozen varieties of wine, including whites such as creamy Chardonel and full-bodied Vignoles. Red wines include Cabernet Franc, which has a velvety finish, and a refreshing semi-sweet Red Kite. You’ll also find a rose and blush wine in the lineup. Try a sampling in the Tasting Room, or sign up for one of the events that are scheduled throughout the year, such as a wine and chocolate pairing or a special vineyard tour with the winemaker.
For those wishing to stay, Kite Hill offers two guest rooms, each with private baths and queen beds, and serves a delicious three-course breakfast. Check out its tempting packages too—good for when you’re visiting one of the local schools or just looking for a special getaway.
