“Valentine's Splurge”
Reviewed February 24, 2008

La Belle Epoque was the perfect choice for our Valentine's splurge! The Inn is quaint and luxurious, with a special touch and attention to detail that only the Inn owners, Roxann and Derek can provide....they really made us feel special.

Located minutes from downtown Napa, we strolled into town for dinner at a wonderful Italian restaurant Roxann recommended. We returned for a romantic evening in the Elizabeth Suite, where we enjoyed wonderful wine and chocolate. The next day, hot coffee and a healthy breakfast arrived at 9:00 sharp...perfect start for our morning bike ride , which Debbie, the Inn Manager, mapped out for us.

Thank you Roxann and Derek for a fantastic romantic getaway at La Belle Epoque. We will definitely be back to stay!

The La Belle Epoque was the best experience of a B&B we have ever had. The food was excellent, the inn was beautiful and the wine tasting hour was the highlight. Roxanne and Derek were wonderful hosts who made every effort to ensure our stay was the best. They were very knowledgeable about the area and what wineries to go to. We would recommend you add La Belle Epoque to your list of best inns to stay at if you go to California.

I cannot describe how great everything was. I can't wait to go back. It all started with a phone call to derek, and ended up with French toast in the morning. My husband and I took my parents to Napa for her birthday and Valentine's Day, and we were blown away. We have tried a couple B & B's and none even compare. Derek and Roxann (whom I did not meet, they were out of town) have an incredible place, I cannot wait to return.

La Belle is a wonderful Victorian house and Derek and Roxann are the best hosts you could hope for. The rooms are wonderful and the breakfasts are outstanding. We really enjoyed the evening wine tasting (social hour) with the other guests at the inn. We will return again!!!

We just returned from La Belle Epoque in the beautiful Napa Valley of California. This bed and breakfast which is located in the heart of the Napa Valley is extrodinary. It was so beautiful that it was hard to leave and head into wine country. The room we stayed in was decorated very eloquently with a great attention to detail. The fireplace gave it great warmth and its sound system was very enjoyable to listen to. The service was outstanding and the food was fantastic. Over all I would say this was by far the best Bed and Breafast I have ever had the pleasue of staying in. If you are looking for a fantastic place to stay in Napa Ca., La Belle Epoque is the place!!!

My husband and I used to live in the Napa Valley so we pride ourselves in knowing quality in hospitality,dining and wines of course.We stayed in Napa on this visit and recommend La Belle Epoque to all.
The new owners are carrying on a wonderful tradition in the evening wine hour in the Inn's own cellar. To my knowledge it is the only Inn in Napa to have such an evening event in its own cellar. The wines and extensive goodies served at the wine hour were included in the daily room rate and not charged 'extra' as many B&B's do.
There are many new hotels in Napa now. That wasn't always the case. To really get the inside scoop on the valley step back in time and treat yourself to a unique experience at La Belle Epoque.

Roxann and Derek are the real thing...

Coming from New York, we're not easily impressed and we are used to a certain standard for our money. La Belle Epoque was everything we expected and then some. We stayed in the Elizabeth suite which is located in the "carriage house" across the street. It was fantastic! We had ample space and all the little attentions to detail (port wine, cookies, chocolates, robes, salt bath) were great.

MOST IMPORTANTLY Roxann and Derek know Napa. We had very specific, well-researched wineries we wanted to attend...so we were not "novice" wine drinkers. They had GREAT suggestions for wineries above and beyond our choices- some of which were so good we've joined their mailing list. Breakfast in the room was not only delicious, it was something we looked forward to...and happy hour featured a wonderful variety of food (also delicious) and wines. Not only do they know the wineries, they can recommend restaurants no matter what your taste is...

We would certainly visit again and plan on doing so!
