“4 Star Plus for Napa and a real bargain as a Timeshare”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

As you may read, they are large FEMA trailers basically with nice amenities and quite private. After spending 15 years paying a lot for the Fairmont Sonoma or other spots like the Sheraton Petaluma, my wife and i love the easy access to shopping and wineries and all of the Wine Country this site offers.

The units are small, but you can ENLARGE them by removing 3 of the dining chairs and the 2 in the bedroom and maybe even an end table and having them store them and then the "great" room really opens up. I would NOT recommend more than 2 adults and maybe 2 small kids, if you really love them, since a week here would be tough without renting the additional studio units attached to some.

Expect relaxation, a relatively elderly crowd and everything you need to stock up real close by
Don;t expect onsite food or room service or a spectacular pool and play areas, just a natural flood zone by the river that requires moving half the units offsite half of the year. A great hike by the river is fun, the grills are new and close and parking is right in front of your trailer cave.

We bought two seeks on ebay for NOTHING basically about 1200 per year for both in maintenance and it makes for 2 great wineshopping trips from Phoenix a year, me driving and her flying. At first it seemed kind of cheesy, but now I love the ease and simplicity and closeness to all Wine Country has to offer.

4.25 /5 only because of the size of the units, but you can learn to love them

Room Tip: Make sure you can get a private patio if they are not busy..some are shared

As owners here for more than 10 years we have been able to experience Riverpointe on a regular basis and see how a place that was wonderful to begin with continues to improve , year in and year out. And an incredibly dedicated and talented staff add to the comfort and charm of this resort. From the general manager to the grounds staff, everyone is there to make staying there a great experience.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit. The units are upscale mobile homes with a living/dining/kitchen area, a bathroom and a bed room with queen bed (very comfortable). Two flat screen TVs, an IPod dock sound system, comfortable furniture and the usual condo amenities. There was a small deck with table and chairs out the front door. This was a great base to enjoy all the wine country fun from. And the resort is in the middle of everything; great food, great wine and beautiful countryside. There's a pool and two jacuzzis, club house with pool table, too.

Definitely take advantage of the wine tastings and other events offered by the resort's amazing concierge, Marilyn. These are definitely NOT timeshare sales presentations and many are free. We went to her dinner event (not free) at nearby restaurant Cuvée and her orientation breakfast (free) and both were delicious and fun. And in the three nights we were there, there were two wine tasting events.

So, to sum it up. A beautiful resort in the middle of wine country with comfortable, nicely appointed accommodations supported by an awesome staff.

My husband booked this without clearing it with me and I was a little hesitant because I learned that the cottages were actually trailers. Was a first for me! I was actually very surprised at how charming this resort was. Our cottage was quite spacious compared to a normal hotel room. Fully equipped kitchen, ample storage, sitting area and an outside deck with chairs and umbrella. Small bathroom but suitable. This place was immaculate. Kudos to the cleaning staff. The scenery was beautiful, walking paths along the river. We had no trouble visiting the wineries, our shuttle picked us up right at our resort.

This place blew me away. After staying at a hotel in san fran, the spaciousness of this condo was refreshing. Love the outdoor porch and the inside is very homey and comfortable. I wish I stayed here for a month with my fianceé. Would even be a great honeymoon destination. Napa is a beautiful and so it this resort. We really enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub, and the complimentary laundry services really makes this the ideal place to stay for a good length of time. Super impressed.

Unfortunately we spent only one day in this comfortable hotel and city. We arrived in the early evening and we were very well received by the hotel staff. After we were surprised by the quality of the room, cleanliness and comfort offered. The rooms are small independent houses, fully equipped with lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. There is also a backyard for barbecue and a swimming pool. We felt at home there.

I too was a little skeptical over staying in a "trailer" but was pleasantly surprised how nice it was. Well appointed and everything worked great. The only minor nits I have is the bed size (we had a queen) and the proximity of the other trailers. Ours shared a deck with the one next to us which was only 10 feet or so away. We didn't have any issues with our neighbors but it would be nice to have a little more space around you. The bathroom has a pocket door and was a bit squeeky and a mite stiff to slide. The staff was very efficient, friendly, and helpful. We were using this place as a base for wine country exploring so we didn't use any of the amenities in the main building. The only other complaints we had was probably something that only happens occasionally. They were moving some of the trailers that were positioned near the river to an off-site storage area so we were hearing lots of noise associated with that. Also, the trees were shedding their leaves and they had the leaf blowers going full blast in the morning.

Room Tip: Stay as far from the road and as close to the river if you have a choice.

Spent another beautiful weekend at River Pointe in Napa. I was part of an annual girls wine weekend with three other women. We had two one-bedroom units that were beautiful, clean, bright and comfy. The beds are amazing and almost indescribable - with fluffy comforters and "cuddle blankets" it's like sleeping on a cloud. Staff is friendly and ever available should you need them. The resorts promotes green as much as possible which I really like! The grounds are immaculate, and set along the river, beautiful place. The resort manager, James, is friendly, charming and always ready to chat with guests or address any concerns. This was my eighth stay this year and I will continue to return again and again.
