Mapping and Directions to Briarwood Cottage at ONX Estate Vineyard


The cottage has been a conversation piece since the early days of ONX. Known as the fairytale house, the Hansel and Gretel home, or simply as the house with the slanted roof, Briarwood is one of three homes on our estate vineyard. Great care went into every detail of the Olde-English style cottage: angled ceilings, unique niches, and a resplendent flower garden. We hope you’ll join us for an event at the Cottage or stay with us on your next vacation.

Living Room and Dining Room

The living room and dining room are special places tied together by Brenda’s personal collection of milk glass, each piece with its own design and story. The dining room offers a ten seat table and iron rod chandelier, authentic to the time period. In the living room, you will find indulgent tufted leather couches meant for relaxing while sipping wine and gazing out to the backyard and vineyard beyond.


A walk through the indoor courtyard leads to three of the four bedrooms in the house. Storybook views from every window, jewel tone decor, and artwork evoking the English cottage lifestyle bring each room together.

Every room comes with a TV, a lounging area, and a charging port. The bathrooms come stocked with toiletry essentials and a hair dryer.


The kitchen is highlighted by stainless steel appliances, knotty alderwood cabinets, and an authentic butcher block weighing over 500 pounds. Our private chefs are available for an exclusive dining experience, please inquire when booking as it requires advanced notice. Unfortunately, we do not allow kitchen use by our guests.


The studio above the main cottage provides the perfect getaway for a couple’s weekend. The cozy, bright apartment contains all the amenities for a wine country getaway: wine fridge, full kitchen, Queen bed, washer & dryer.


Finally, there is the outdoor space. It consists of manicured gardens, endless vineyard views, and a comfortable seating area with a fire pit.

When gazing out to the vineyard from the back patio, you will spot the anchor of Briarwood Cottage. Her name is Grace, a coastal oak dating back 200 years. The sight of her elegant branches allows for a moment of reflection into the past and a chance to see what the future will bring.


Briarwood Cottage graciously serves as the venue for our Winemaker Dinners. Each Spring and Fall we gather the ONX proprietors, winemakers, Collective members, and friends for an intimate evening of gourmet food, select wines, and wonderful conversation. We hope to see you at the next dinner.
