“Beautiful inn in the heart of the wine country”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

This was our third time staying at the Harvest Inn. One of the times was on our honeymoon. This time, we brought friends on their honeymoon visiting from Japan. They loved it. The rooms are lovely. Breakfast was great. The grounds are really pretty - its nice to just walk around and take photos. Very picturesque. And its in a great location in St. Helena between Napa and Calistoga. Although a bit pricey, I highly recommend staying at the Harvest Inn.

We booked this for our party of six based on the tripadvisor recommendations and were not disappointed. We had stayed at the vineyard inn 10 years ago and found that charming at that time. HI has over 70 rooms, and put on a wonderful breakfasts which is included in room price. Quiche, fruits, stuffed warm croissants, cereal, muffins and scones, oatmeal - a great selection. The young man from South Africa overseeing the kitchen had a warm, friendly, attentive attitude! Both h.i, and v. I. Are near highway 29 so you do hear highway noise but the location is right in the heart of wine country and we'd go back. Grounds do look like they need to hire somebody to pull weeks and tend to the flowers. But overall charming!

Dear n s,

Thank you so very much for taking the time to give us your feedback about your recent stay. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed not only the proximity of the hotel in the heart of the valley, but our amazing wine country breakfast. We will also pass along to Alex that you found his service warm and attentive! We have taken your comments about the grounds to heart and the landscapers are working diligently to plant fresh colorful flowers for the season.

Thank you again and we hope you return to the Harvest Inn

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while visiting Napa/St. Helena. It's very close to some excellent wineries, it's cozy, clean, and stylishly appointed, and they offer a nice complimentary breakfast. The hotel is located just outside the center of St. Helena, which is a much nicer town than Napa proper.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Napa Valley.

Room Tip: Try and grab a room located away from the main road.

was a nice hotell, had a graet breakfast buffet included. We were staying as part of an interview process so we did not pay, but seeing how expensive it was and how the hotel room needed some updating it would probably not stay there if i were paying for it.

We stayed at the Harvest for 4 days and wished that we had spent the entire week there on our Napa Valley visit. Beautiful grounds, secluded feel among the grove of trees. Lovely breakfast area looking out on vineyards. Marvelous!

The inn has a perfumed "wood smoke" smell from a bottle of oil with sticks. It permeated all of our clothes and suitcases. We had to send evening clothes to cleaners, wash everything even though clean and air out our suitcases outside. The beds were comfortable and rest was a good experience. The neighbor room also put the perfume oil bottle outside. Just overwhelming! .There is construction on the main road for a new pipe and new lane which makes it noisy and impossible to get out in the traffic. It is also very dark to find the entrance at night....we had a hard time and had to turn around. Breakfast was nice and service staff went out of their way. The front desk was abrupt and failed to get our dinner reservation made. We arrived and the restaurant did not have us written down. Of course they could have failed to enter it as well.

Room Tip: Stay away from highway. Ask to have the oil removed and room aired.

Dear pacha42025,

We love to hear form our guests about their stay, even when there are, as in your case, aspects of your stay that were not to your liking. We apologize that you found our particular choice of scented oil diffusers during your stay overwhelming. We are addressing this selection with our person in charge of ordering them. Normally they have a delicate scent of lavender, which typically is relaxing, so we are sorry that your experience was different.

We are pleased to hear however that you enjoyed the Wine Country Kitchen and its staff. They pride themselves on service and attention to detail.

Please keep us in mind on your next visit to St. Helena. When booking, please let the reservationist know of your preference for no scents in the room as we are happy to make the accommodation in advance. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Harvest Inn.

Our spacious vineyard view room with fireplace was perfect. The edge of the vineyard was only a few feet from our patio! We could sit on our private patio with a glass of wine admiring the beauty of the vineyard with the mountains in the distance. The room was nicely appointed and the bathroom modern and large. The grounds were spectacular-we spent some of our time strolling through the resort admiring the flora and the architecturally appealing old-world style buildings adorned with very unique brickwork. The lobby and the wine bar area were also stunning with much carved woodwork. The extensive breakfast was excellent and was served in a nice dining room with outdoor terrace overlooking the vineyard. The exercise room was adequate. The 2 swimming pools looked very appealing, but the weather was too cool to use them during our stay. All of the staff were friendly, efficient, and helpful.
We stayed at Meadowood last year and enjoyed Meadowood, but we actually preferred our stay at Harvest Inn over Meadowood, and at half the price of Meadowood!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the vineyard view room with fireplace.

Dear esarn304,

Thank you for your wonderful comments. All of our staff take great pride in providing the best possible experience for our guests.

The gardeners are very meticulous when it comes to maintaining the flora that helps to provide that romantic and secluded feel of our Inn. It is very nice when a guest not only notices, but takes the time to appreciate their hard work.

We appreciate that you found the pools appealing, and perhaps on your next visit the weather will be warm enough to fully enjoy them.

Thank you again for such a lovely review, and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.
