Poetry Inn
Ranked #17 of 22 Napa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 31, 2011

The Poetry Inn sits above the Napa Valley providing spectacular views (especially at sunset) and overlooking its parent establishment, Cliff Lede Winery. It is sumptuous, and very special, consisting of only three accommodations. Our suite was enormous with great views and luxurious furnishings, including a bathroom larger than most standard hotel rooms.

Chris Parkes, our innkeeper and host, could not have been more accommodating and gracious. The Poetry Inn was clearly the highlight of our trip to Napa.

My wife and two friends had the pleasure of 2 nights in this magical place. We liked the experience so well we booked it again for next June. Let the people that work there do your planning. They booked two of the greatest wine experiences we've ever had while keeping us sober for the drive home from Spring Mountain. It was VERY hard to stay the safe driver when the owner of Teachworth Vineyard opened the second bottle of wine. We almost stayed in the guest house but needed to return to the Poetry with our Dean & Deluca feast in order to experience everything possible at the Inn. The room with the hammock is great only don't try any swinging gymnastics on it for fear of head injury; save those for the outdoor shower. Sip the fabulous Cliff Lede wine on the way in and they might even leave the bottle for you to enjoy.

As much as we have traveled little compares to our weekend experience at the Poetry Inn. We experienced elegant luxury in a relaxed atmosphere. The hillside setting over looking Napa Valley could be experienced from our personal terrace or our outdoor shower. The inn keepers are extremely accommodating. You want for nothing. We will return many times.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and the hotel has 5 enormous suites with the best views of Napa. Very luxurious and the inn keepers are great. They booked us some off the beaten track wine tastings such as Marita which were great. We will definately return.

We just returned from our 4-night stay in the Emily Dickinson room at the Poetry Inn. The views were absolutely breathtaking and the room was spectacular. The staff were extremely courteous and attentive. Breakfasts were outstanding. The property has a great location near to towns of St. Helena, Yontville and Napa. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect place for a romantic getaway. This is one of the priciest places I've ever stayed, but was pleased to feel it was worth it, and that I was lucky to find such a gem! It's so rare on a vacation that everything falls right into place, and then some. The accommodations, details and service went beyond my expectations.(comfy bed, huge bedroom, huge balcony, sitting room, lit fire at end of the day, sparking wine and goodies, the view, the privacy, peace and quiet...) On the same trip, we also stayed at a larger inn which came highly recommended, but that was a mistake. Nothing can compare to Poetry Inn, as many other visitors have expressed. Next trip I hope to stay more than 2 nights!!! (I know much of what I wrote has already been written in the reviews but I still wanted to add something so readers of my other reviews might get a point of reference from it).
