What a wonderful stay we had at the Vintage Inn in September. We were three couples and we stayed five nights. The hotel had so much charm and the staff was exceptional. Everyone that works there were so friendly and helpful. They all seemed to really enjoy their jobs. Any question or request was handled immediately and happily!
Each couple was celebrating a special occasion and when we arrived at the hotel the manager greeted us and knew exactly who we were. He even helped us to our rooms with our luggage along with another staff. We had a bottle of wine and fruit basket in our room waiting for us and also a bottle of champagne for our special occasion.
We started each day with a walk down the street in lovely Yountville to the Villagio Inn & Spa which is the sister hotel of the Vintage Inn. If staying at the Vintage you can utilize the ammenities at the more expensive Villagio. We took a relaxing steam and dip in the hot pool and then showered in the luxurious showers with all of the great spa products. The spa has everything you need to get ready in the morning except your clothes and make-up. Thick soft towels, robes, slippers, toiletries, hairdryers, toothbrushes, etc...it was so clean and the attendents were so attentive. They have a sitting room too where they offer healthy snacks, etc...It was such a nice way to start our day! Treat yourself to a mud wrap at the spa. It was heavenly!
Back at the Vintage awaiting us was a scrumptious spread of breakfast foods and a chef to make your own omelette. The mimosas and bloody mary's were flowing throughout breakfast. The food was delicious and plentiful.
Afternoon tea looked really nice too but when we arrived back at the hotel after a day at the wineries we went right to the pool which is also really pretty and very relaxing. They also have bar service if you would like a drink around the pool. Great hot tub too.
The location of the hotel is excellent. We toured all day and walked to dinner each night to the great restaurants in Yountville. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and kept up so well.
The only negatives which I hate to even mention but want to give a fair review is that the rooms are in need of some updating. The furniture is dated and there is little storage for your clothes. The sides of the bathtubs are very high so if you are short like me it is a stretch to get in to the tub/shower. You have to be careful. We found the bed to be very comfy, flat screen tv and fireplace were a nice touch. We also had turn down service each night which we really enjoy.
I would go back to this hotel in a heartbeat and recommend it to all of our friends. It is a bit pricey but not in comparison to other hotels in Yountville and in my opinion Yountville is where you want to stay vs. Napa. So quaint but offers so much as far as restaurants, several wine tastings and a bit of shopping and poking around.
I would love to go back to the Vintage Inn!
