Everything about this property is fine. The grounds are better than the rooms, and are charming and well maintained. The lobby, with lovely teas and breakfasts, sets a tone of welcome, casual elegance. The rooms are acceptable, with an over-done 1990s rustic French vibe that was once hugely popular but now seems dated. And if you over-use fabrics, you should probably deep clean them every five years or so. Yet despite my qualms, this is usually where I stay in Yountville. Neverhteless, the price point is irksome. It's like buying a a full price walk-up ticket on a US domestic airline. You pay top dollar for a product that's dated, verging on shabby, and not up to international standards. That's how market pricing works.
