Classic Napa
The Country Inn with Luxury Appeal

The traditional dining space and lobby

With its abundance of flowering gardens, brick exteriors and sweeping wine country views, this cluster of villas and conference centers feels as if it belongs in Provence. It is set along a working vineyard and is popular for weddings, reunions and business retreats.

Wood-burning fireplaces and high vaulted wood-beamed ceilings highlight the interiors. The main room feels as if it belongs in a grand country estate. Guest rooms are done in grays and cornflower blues and include comfy feather beds and balconies.

Vaulted ceilings
A waterway runs through it

There is a sleek, narrow swimming pool out back. Corporate facilities include executive conference rooms with full audiovisual and business services. Breakfast is a sophisticated affair, served with Champagne.
