Our cottage was terrific. We used the outdoor fireplace every night. The yard was completely private. The Boone Fly Cafe was excellent, the fried chicken and waffles is a must have. We would definitely stay again.

From the owners of Cade and a few other wineries, the Carneros Inn is something unbelievable. What looks like a small simple inn, is actually a very pretty Inn with a huge infra-structure and great accomodations. Rooms are very nice and they are small houses with nice poarches and outdoor showers. It is a great place to enjoy yourself and... More

We have stayed at the Carneros several times. We have had various types of accommodations. This trip we had a Garden Suite as we were traveling with family. The set up consisted of 2 King cottages with a shared patio / deck. Observations: -Tho the suite sleeps four, there were only TWO chairs at the patio table. Yes, there was... More

I would recommend this hotel for a romantic gateway rather than family vacation. Each guesthouse, I believe, has a fireplace, completely enclosed great private patio with table and chairs. Some have a view of the wineyard. Rooms are impeccably clean. Service is prompt and friendly. Infinity swimming pool has a great view and open 24 hr. Superb restaurant on the... More

Here's a place that's thought of everything. Immaculate property with lovely rooms - loved the courtyard area, the outdoor shower (don't worry, there's an indoor one too!) and all the facilities in the room. Lovely fruit trees along the pathways, well kept and serviced pool and restaurant areas, very obliging staff. Treat yourselves!

After staying for four nights we loved the hotel so much we decided to spend one more night. But this is when I was disappointed with the front desk, especially the front desk manager. We wanted to stay at the same room but had to move rooms because the hotel said they were fully committed. Then we asked if we... More
