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 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.

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!

We recently stayed here to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday--it was our second time staying here, but the first time we spent many days. We choose the private cottage this time, which was wonderful with the huge 4-poster bed, fireplace, indoor jacuzzi tub, walk-in closet, and TV with a DVD player. Also has a nice little outdoor table next to the parking lot. The room is super quiet and very clean. I had also asked that the room have a cake, cheese plate, and champagne on ice waiting for us, and not only did the Inn staff ask us about our arrival timing so they could plan everything accordingly, but the food was incredible and a LOT of it for a super reasonable price. The champagne was also a nice brut Chandon :) Because the Inn isn't serving breakfast right now or hosting wine happy hours due to COVID, they gave us a free bottle of wine, varietal of our choice--a nice cabernet. What I also thought was lovely was that the Inn has a huge porch with an attached bathroom open to guests, and because the day was super hot and we wanted to relax with our friends who were also staying at the Inn, they had no problem letting us set up all of our bottles, food, and a portable speaker on the porch and hang out for a few hours. The Inn really does have a lot of nice outdoor spaces where you can just sit and relax. Of course, the Inn is also centrally located in downtown Napa, so you can walk to all the shops and restaurants. Couldn't recommend more highly and will be back in the fall :)

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!
