The couple that runs the day to day operations were just delightful. We checked in, got a tour to our room. It was all the way at the top of the Merlot house. The buildings are older, so the floors squeak and the water takes awhile to warm up, but it's charming. The room itself had a lot of space. We stayed in the Walk in the Clouds rooms. It was adorable. I loved that it had 2 king beds. They have a shared kitchen space a floor down. People are free to use the refrigerator, the microwave and any other amenities. In the morning, we were lucky enough to get breakfast, which is a service they just started trying out. It was really good and a perfect portion size.
The location was a short walk to downtown Napa where there was a walk of restaurants and shops. Great location and parking on sight. Great stay over all

We stayed in Chocolate, lovely room, spacious, old world charm, cast iron bathtub & they really thought about as they have placed a mirror on the door so you can still watch TV whilst in the tub. Ice water Tea and coffee and snacks are provided and there is a fridge/microwave downstairs that you can use. Its a really lovely building, lots of character and charm, close to everything Napa has.
I understand with Covid that minimising contact is probably a good thing, checkin is done text on the phone, however I am from the UK so my phone number didn't work in the US (roaming charges are high) so I didn't get the details(they weren't to know). It also makes it a bit impersonal we knew nothing about the room, breakfast details or the surrounding area, there was nothing left in the room to inform us about this. As for breakfast it was nice but the 1st day we weren't informed as to what it was and I am vegetarian and eggs Benedict with ham was just placed in front of me, also what if we were of a religion that didn't eat ham? The coffee and tea were cold and the other guests didn't get there juice until about 30 mins after they sat down. I don't like meat so thats why I don't eat it but if it was for ethical reasons then this would have been a real problem, The next day was better and we were told what was for breakfast but when you do this every day then you really should have a system where this does not happen in the first place.
I would probably give it 4.5 stars and I would stay again

The private cottage was a delight! The bed was so comfortable we didn't want to leave. Everything was sparkling clean. The innkeeper was amazing and so very friendly. We had to switch rooms because, at the last minute, our dog sitter fell through. She moved us to a dog friendly room over the phone and was super nice about the situation. The property is super cute and we felt safe walking in the neighborhood even late at night. We will be back for sure!

Nice rooms, amenities, and great breakfast, but parking and communication lacked. We booked the private cottage in the rear of the property, but without a designated parking space, we were forced to park on the street for the weekend. The day we arrived, it took three messages to get a call back to learn how to check in after hours. Overall, nice place, but missing some of the little touches to be a five star property.

We absolutely loved this B&B. Despite what other reviews have said, when we walked in we found the cabernet house warm and charming. We stayed in the very clean Allegria room, with a jacuzzi tub - perfect to relax in after walking through town, which is very close, and wineries.

Amvic was wonderful and helped us get whatever we needed. We will be back.

We stayed in the Paris room and loved it. All the rooms are themed and completely different from one another, which makes this a really interesting stay. Breakfast each morning was great and staff are friendly and accessible. Pictures on website are old and can definitely use some updating. It’s an old building, luckily we were at the end of the hall, so it wasn’t so loud, but if we were near the stairs, it would have been more challenging. Would stay here again for sure.

We stayed two nights in the Starry Night accommodations at the Cabernet House in Napa. All the rooms are romantic. Our bed was very comfortable. When the staff was cleaning the rooms—we got to peek in the doors. It is well situated within walking distance to shops and restaurants. The home is lovely with beautiful accommodations. Very nice staff. Good breakfast. Nice wine and cheese in the afternoon. We highly recommend it to others!

I was comfortable until breakfast when I was asked to give more.money then I was asked to give. I also am hungry with bad meat from these hospitalityworkers and around noon the door to my private cottage was Rudly broken into and I was shamed for two older brownasianwomen and poor attitude to guests who are unwelcome to use their own property when being bushedinbruised ywormioinaniglikeyoungjockinindioandtwanwongvernimandblacktull.

Was a quaint B & B for our stay after visiting the Napa wineries. Rooms were cute, comfortable & well stocked and the breakfast was amazing. Was close enough to walk to downtown to eat at the restaurants or shops.

I'd recommend you hire a car from SF to this location as its really cheap. We then got reception to hire a driver of our rental car to take us around the wineries. Approx. $350 but his knowledge and the lovely wineries and wine tasting made it a highlight of our trip to California
