and eco-friendly too??? Come on! The Reservations manager was very accommodating and made this Birthday very special The pool above the Napa valley, biking downtown etc.
Eat here at LUCY it is the best deal in the valley, seriously we ate at Meadowood and spent 5x as much with equal satisfaction. Plucking lovely carrots from their small garden and preparing them several different ways (all delicious) Service is incredible at the rest. and the inn. Just Do It!

Room Tip: Always ask for an upgrade or a quiet room.

Dear CaliforniaWolfgirl,

What a "Sweet" review. Thank you. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay with us, and particularly Lucy, our restaurant. As you say, our food is very fresh and a lot of it coming from our on-site garden.

I'm a big fan of Nike and their mantra "Just do it". Great advice for people contemplating at stay at Bardessono. Thank you for offering it.

Warm regards from all of us.

Jim.

This is the place to stay in California wine country. The accomodations are lovely, clean, environmentally superb and the staff is excellent. The concierge is well versed on local points of interest, shopping and restaurants. Bardessono is centrally located in Yountville, there are plenty of must try restaurants and shopping within a short walk. It is a very accessible town and within a reasonable drive from hundreds of winerys. I would recommend Bardessono to anyone traveling to Napa, San Francisco, Sonoma.

Dear Beth C,

What a nice review. Thank you; and thank you for staying with us. We really appreciate your recommendation and kind words about our location, accommodations, staff, and knowledgeable and helpful Concierge team.

We're an hour from San Francisco best case, and two hours in heavy traffic. Sonoma is a half hour away. Between Napa Valley and Sonoma Valleys, there are more than 500 wonderful wineries to explore and enjoy.

We do hope you'll return. (And Go Navy!...USMC, too.))

All the best from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

Our first time here - overall excellent - not a hair out of place. the valet and front desk staff are outgoing and friendly, the rooms are spacious, modern and luxurious and the food is very good. You can walk to all of Yountville's incredible food and wine offerings. Highly recommended!

I could write a novella here, so I'll do my best to write this in a package that captures the essence. First off, I read, as you're reading boatloads of unreal reviews on bardessono- so I wasn't sure what to expect but between the price, location, and the reviews, the bar was set high. very high. We were going to napa, sans kids for 5 days- that is amazing for us to have pulled off, between my work and the kid thing- for our 25th anniversary. I had ordered flowers, chocolates pre-trip and between melissa in reservations and the "concierge", it was handled effortlessly (and when we showed up "wowsa!"). We came in late at night and the setting is beautiful; though exhausted from the 5 hour flight from ATL and the 2 hour drive, it was quite pleasant. The property is beautiful, smells amazing with the aroma of the cedar. The room, once we got to it, was secluded in the back and again, a "wow"- the bathroom amazingly stocked, the bed amazingly comfie, the tv with the scenescapes on the screen - topped it off- and champagne waiting for us. It only got better and better. Our each and every need handled without any effort and as pleasant as "family". Again, I'm trying to state different things than have been mentioned, but it's hard to not state what's over and over and over. Our first day and our 25th anniversary, we had booked the taste of bardessono wine package and Doug white made it one of the most amazing days of my life in napa (I've been here many times previoulsy), where he intro'd us to a couple of families in the wine business that might not be well known and definitely not known by me previously (boyds and zeitgeist)...and we sure got to taste some amazing wines!!! The concierge, TOM was masterful in handling our itinerary for offbeat tours. Found us a great driver for a day and we got to truly explore different wineries with incredible insight (amici tours). I could get off topic on all the amazing scenery here, the amazing food within walking distance (we did our best to try as many of the locals as possible) and the hotel...and staff. Thank you guys for making this most memorable week of ours- we will be remembering this fondly until our next visits and there will be more here- honestly, beyond money, I don't think i could ever buy what you guys have delivered here--the LUCY food and drink - MOST EXCELLENT. but in your business it's about service and this is where you simply enhanced everything. THANK YOU THANKYOU THANK YOU.... Jeff + Susan from ATLanta.

Room Tip: i can't imagine many "bad" rooms here- depends on what you want, but i would say empha...

Dear Jeff M,

You did write a novella.... Thank you so much. I really appreciate your many kind words about us and your experience here. Your reaction to Bardessono is exactly the kind of reaction we try to instill in all our guests. You were also nice to write to some of our staff individually about your stay. I'm so glad Melissa and Tom took such good care of you.

You wrote with such passion and detail. This means so much to us. It's wonderful to be recognized so positively for our efforts here.

Please celebrate your 26th anniversary with us, and every one thereafter. You were a delight to serve.

All best wishes from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

Dear banxtok,

As you suggest and as the saying goes - "The devil is in the details". In our business, there are so many details - both the physical elements of the property, as well as the nuances of hiring great people and then providing extraordinary training. We so appreciate being recognized so positively for our attention to detail.

Please return. We'd enjoy serving you again, as we do all our guests.

All best wishes from all of us at Bardessono.

Jim.

Driving into Yountville I couldn't picture in my mind where this hotel was located. When we arrived in the center of town we saw the hotel on the adjacent side street. Once we drove down the short driveway to the valet/hotel entrance we immediately felt that we were in a secluded and serene setting. The hotel in general and the rooms in particular are all nicely adorned. The architecture of the property itself, design features in the hotel common areas, restaurant Lucy and the rooms are all visually pleasing. Though the design features throughout the property feature stone and hardwood you feel nothing but warmth from the moment you are greeted by the valets, the front desk team and the team in the restaurant and bar. The people are all very friendly and though they have undoubtedly led thousands of people through the introductory tour of the property they did so with sincerity and interest to make certain that we would enjoy our experience. Regrettably we could only spend one evening there but it was wonderful. The amenities in the room were simple but very comfortable. The king size bed and pillows made for a very comfortable sleeping environment. I highly recommend this property because you are conveniently located near the base of the Napa Valley but you also feel the experience of being alone in a serene setting.

Room Tip: Every room in the property looks to be a winner.
