Most people come to Temecula Wine Country to taste wine and if you ask us, that’s a pretty good reason to visit and stay at Ponte Vineyard Inn. Your getaway should start in the Ponte Winery Tasting Room where you’ll enjoy a wide variety of Ponte wines. Next, plan on indulging in delicious farm-to-table gourmet food at one of Ponte’s three restaurants. Between all that food and wine happiness, there are actually a lot more activities to help you enjoy all the Temecula Valley has to offer.

It’s no secret that there are horseback riding trails, spa activities, golfing and hot air ballooning available nearby – all outstanding ways to pass the time. It might surprise some, though, that our top-rated boutique hotel is becoming a popular place for nature-lovers to rest their heads after long days of being outdoors.

Lake Skinner

Ponte Vineyard Inn sits mere miles from Lake Skinner, a beautiful recreational area offering fishing, boating, kayaking and sailing, not to mention biking and hiking on surrounding trails, picnicking and more. It is well known for hosting the annual Temecula Valley Balloon and Wine Festival. Kids (and kids at heart) will love the seasonal Splash Pad.

San Juan Loop trail, Lake Elsinore

Others, still, who prefer a more, shall we say, rustic atmosphere will be delighted to know that many hiking and mountain biking trails reside in the surrounding areas. The cities of Fallbrook, Lake Elsinore, Murrieta and Palomar Mountain are just a few spots where hikers can find their Zen place. The best part is, after sweating (in a good way) on the trails and digging rocks out of your shoes, the most comfortable beds and luxurious showers in Temecula await you upon your return to the Inn.
