What a wonderful place to get away from it all. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. While the property is fairly large, it was well laid out and easy to get around. For those not physically fit or not wanting to overheat, you can call for a golf cart, and they come remarkably fast. My room was a well appointed free... More

Nice play to stay with your significant other. The restaurant is great, but make sure to make a reservation. I don't understand why but as a guest you don;t have any advantage to eat in their restaurant. That's the bad part.

My wife and I were staying only one night before heading to San Fran on a weeklong trip from east coast. Within 15 minutes of arriving on the property, I was on the phone cancelling our SF reservation and extending our stay at the Carneros Inn. I am rather picky and I must say everything was perfect. The greeting, the... More

We had a great experience 2 years ago when we brought a group of 15 for a special birthday celebration. We received very personalized service and it was thoroughly enjoyable. While it was quite expensive, it was what we had expected. This time, with a group of 8, it was a totally different experience. We felt like we were just... More

This is a unique resort. It is spread out and some spots have a nice view of the rolling hills, mountains, and some of fields of grape vines. Lets make this clear, if you are looking for a room in Napa with a view of vineyards, that isn't happening. However, if you want a well put together room in a... More

I hate to write this review because we have had great experiences at CI in the past. But unfortunately our most recent one was a disappointment. But first let me say that the Napa earthquake happened while we were there, and the staff handled it beautifully. They were calm, poised and efficient, especially at the restaurants where they managed to... More

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at this unique resort. The staff was so helpful, our bungalow was roomy and private, the food was amazing. We enjoyed our room service breakfast - the ultimate luxury. Wine tastings early, infinity pool and snacks in the afternoon and fabulous dinners at night.... perfect long weekend in wine country!

The Carneros Inn is great. The cottages are very private and the rooms clean and comfy. LOVE the heated bathroom floor and indoor/outdoor shower. Even if you don't want to use the outdoor shower you can open the door and let the sun shine in. We ate at Farm one night and it was really fantastic. The hotel is situated... More

We visit the Napa and Sonoma area every year and stay at a number of hotels as we tour the region. We have visited the Carneros Inn on numerous occasions over the last seven years and it is still the best stay in the area. Great service, lovely cottages and gardens, great fitness facilities and a super on site restaurant... More
