My husband and I have visited the Napa region a few times and always love to visit Relais du Soleil. It's tucked away, quiet, peaceful, and restorative. Tim is a generous host who will tell you stories, give you wine, and treat you to a delicious home-made breakfast before you leave. I would highly recommend staying here for a night... More

We had the opportunity to spend a night at Relais du Soleil and it was great! My wife and I were greeted by Tim, the Innkeeper that evening and treated to some of his Gold Medal winning Zin blend. The cottage was quaint and comfortable, but the gourmet breakfast he prepared for us the next morning was a foodie's delight.... More

My father and I were on a long road trip from Vancouver to Los Angeles. Finding Tim and his rustic oasis was just what we needed. He and his pup greeted us with open arms, local cheese and his wine straight from the barrel. Tim is such a lovely guy and he is truly opened his home and everything that... More

Any time I'm close to the Napa Valley I scheme of ways to get back here. It's a favorite destination for me and an absolute must for you. The scenic drive from Napa (the city) brings you through the trees, over a ridge on a windy road. As you arrive at the property, you cross over a small creek and... More

My trip was topped off as perfect all because of this property and the wonderful hospitality of Tim. My mother and I share our birthday so every single year it is special and we spent the majority of our trip by the hot tub or in the barn drinking wine and socializing with friends! There were 7 of us in... More

Absolutely beautiful spot for a wedding. The owner is a lot of fun and his Rhodesian ridgeback is a terrific greater. Guests from all over the country have raved about what a wonderful time they had. If you want to have a wedding in the wine country, this is the place.

We found Relais du Soleil at the last minute and what a great find! Tim and Lareen were the perfect innkeepers and this was by far one of the most relaxing and fantastic places we stayed on our entire California vacation. Tim's wine was superb, and the breakfast he fixed the following morning was out of this world. We will... More

An authentic guest ranch experience in the heart of Glen Ellen wine country. This was our 2nd stay here, and we really enjoyed Tim's delicious and innovative breakfasts, great conviviality, cheese and barrel-wine tastings in the barn, and checking out the massive coyote sculpture that the resident artist will feature at this year's burning man festival. The bunk house was... More

Our whole family stayed here for my sister's wedding in October...it was an amazing dreamy floating time. Tim is wonderful, and so hospitable, we felt welcomed from the very first moment! For those of us staying with Tim at the house, and for all those who attended the wedding it was a truly magical, rustic, glowing experience! What a lovely... More
