If you want to get the real Napa experience…which you do because otherwise you wouldnt be going there…you should really stay at a Bed and Breakfast. Two of our favorite are The Beazley House and Old World Inn. They are adorable. We stayed in a little cottage behind the beazley house that you have to walk through gardens to get to. The websites really dont do them justice.
If you are looking for a more hotel type atmosphere look into The Harvest Inn. It is so damn beautiful and it is not only on a vineyard, but it is in the middle or the main wine tasting drag, across the street from V-Sattui (best wine ever)….oh and its where my FI and I are getting hitched in three months!
I am not sure of your budget, but I would love to stay at the Carneros Inn. Unlike in Napa, it is less dense, less touristy (in my opinion) and less people and more vines! Instead of staying in a city, you are actually staying in wine country. I also think Beltane Ranch looks adorable (at a different price point than Carneors).
I agree with going the B&B route, but if french country floral isn’t your thing, I hightly reco 1801 First (1801first dot com). Very classy. We’re staying there for our honeymoon. Also, don’t miss dinner at Celedon, lunch (and late night drinks) at The Calisoga Inn, the cave tour at Del Dotto (worth every penny). And you really have to have luch (the full course, not the box lunch) or dinner on the wine train! Have a great time!
B & B’s sound great – I did check out the Harvest Inn – WOW. But is it bad that we don’t really want to have breakfast with strangers right after our wedding? Thanks for all the recommendations so far — keep ’em coming! 🙂
Awwww enmoore66, Beltane Ranch is beautiful. I actually had my heart set on having our wedding there, but it is quite a drive from there to any vineyards or restaurants etc. Plus, you have to go through a not so nice area to get there. Its perfect if you dont plan on going out much, but otherwise, I would stay closer to Napa.
U will love this place – we loved it – The spa and the rooms are fabulous. The Mission Inn in Sonoma
