Lovely and Charming! Each room is different and beautifully appointed. You will find yourself looking forward to the breakfast creations. Our breakfast was a three course delight. We also enjoyed the evening wine and canapés. Although we did not take advantage of the pool area, I encourage you to bring a bathing suit and enjoy an evening by the pool.... More

The French breakfasts were always beautifully prepared. I think they said that there were three courses, but it seemed like twice as many as that. You feel like you're in a high end French restaurant. Joel was very helpful and courteous, and the grounds are very pretty. They have a nice pool and hot tub, and a nice patio where... More

Our room was small but comfortable. The public spaces are modern and stylish. The breakfasts are one of the highlights, many courses of delicious delicacies. The wine and nibbles were a great start to the evening. Sitting on the veranda with a glass of wine, overlooking the Napa valley as the sun descends was wonderfully relaxing. The other outside spaces... More
