This place is very special. Great restaurants. Lovely facilities. Very close to great wineries. The cottages are in good shape. Bathtub wasn't large or new but my husband loved the outdoor shower. The service while we stayed there was great. I did have to follow up with housekeeping after check out because I thought I left something in the room.... More

The Carneros Inn is a true getaway, relaxing and quiet and secluded and beautiful without being in the middle of nowhere, since it's just a few minutes drive from numerous wineries and downtown Napa. The on-site restaurants Farm and Boon Fly Cafe were great, each in their own way, and the on-site Market store had a large selection of food,... More

Spent two nights in a huge two bedroom "house" on the premises. The setting is beautiful, romantic and serene. There is a lovely pool for sunbathing and another for exercise with a kiddy pool beyond. It is like a grownup refuge where kids are welcome; there are activities, exercise and multiple choices of places to get very good food. The... More

Just stayed for a night, have to say it's a very private setting, outside shower from inside shower, eclectic design, New England cottage, outdoor heat and complete privacy. Great 24 hour heated pool and same hot tub. Adult only pool. Restaurant on site but a walk depending which unit you have. Great napa wines of course. Well designed and security... More

Huge disappointment. The place is gorgeous. The heater didn't seem to work so once the one log they give you has burned down it got pretty freaking cold. We asked for a bucket of ice four times before we finally got it. We came back late Saturday thinking we could get a late dinner, but we could not be served... More

Romantic, peaceful, nicely appointed rooms with nice outdoor space as well. Dinner dining was excellent, and the breakfast place, Boon Fly Cafe, was very good as well. We loved the gas fireplace in the room, but it was too cold and rainy too hang out outside.

If you're looking for a way to turn off, Carneros Inn is one of the nicest ways to do so in the Napa Valley. The individual cottages are tremendously romantic and each one comes with a small backyard. We had room service brought to us one evening and we hung out on the back deck and at dinner under the...

A wonderful experience and I rate it 4.5 stars. The grounds are beautiful and spacious. Driving to registration you see huge buffalo that are fenced in and part of the property. They apparently are very friendly. The actual registration area is contained within its own building. It was beautifully decorated with couches and a fireplace and it reminded me of... More
