Sophisticated luxury sets the mood at this resort in the Napa countryside.
Located in the remote Carneros winegrowing region, The Carneros Inn embodies the casually sophisticated spirit of Northern California. Nestled among 27 acres of seemingly endless rows of grape vines, bucolic farmland and scenic apple orchards, the inn's design was based on cues from the local countryside, including barns, silos and ranching cottages. At the same time, accommodations are modern. Each of the 86 individual cottages measures in at 450 square feet and features a plasma-screen TV and oversize bathroom, as well as a private patio and garden furnished with heat lamps. Ten studio cottages are nearly 700 square feet each and come with private outdoor showers, as well. The Spa at The Carneros Inn uses natural products from the surrounding area, and heart-healthy extras include a fitness center and complimentary use of bicycles. House made breads, pastries and artisan charcuterie are just a few of the delights found at the on-site dining venues: FARM (upscale and romantic), Boon Fly Café (modern and casual) and the Hilltop Dining Room (resort guests only). Elsewhere on the property, guests will find pools (including one for adults only), bocce ball courts and a lawn for croquet. For big resort amenities and a private atmosphere, this resort is a top wine country choice.
