Unless you’re lucky enough to live in Napa Valley, you’re going to want to book somewhere great to stay when you come visit our world-famous vineyards. Who wants to take a long trek after spending all day sipping wine? And why limit yourself to just one day, right? If you spend the night at a Napa Valley Bed & Breakfast, you get the benefit of another day in the vineyards with all the added comforts of home.
For those of you who not only love wine but also love gazing out over those rolling hills of green, Napa Valley has B&B with a bonus. And by bonus, we mean vineyard views. So if you’re searching for a place to rest your head after an exhausting day of delicious wines and friendly vineyard hosts, don’t miss these five Napa Valley B&Bs with a vineyard view.
If you’re in it for the relaxation and the views, make sure to book a suite at Napa Vineyard House’s Deluxe or Premiere Collections, both of which come with your own private patio where you can enjoy a private wine tasting with bottles you picked up during the day. Their 143 “excellent” reviews and 1 “very good” denote Innkeeper Kevin’s excellent taste and meticulous attention to detail. Hugged by vineyards on three sides, you’ll enjoy views of the vines from your plush, high thread count king sized bed. Once the sun goes down, curl up in front of your suite’s gas fireplace or enjoy their deluxe bathrooms with heated tile floors, enjoy the spacious rooms. Located 5 minutes south of Yountville this chic and modern B&B is truly in the heart of wine country.
Insider Tip: Half of the “b’s” in B&B stand for breakfast, but in the case of Napa Vineyard House, they also stand for Bouchon Bakery. Enjoy French pastries fresh from this local bakery every morning.
The Wine Country Inn has three different types of rooms, so you’re pretty much guaranteed to find exactly what you’re looking for. They boast five luxury cottages, four suites, and 20 guest rooms. Check out the Vineyard House suites for panoramic views of the Napa Valley Cascades or the 800 square foot Wine Country Cottages for vineyard and mountain views. Also, they’re family-friendly, making them a great option even for folks who have the little ones in tow.
And as a bonus, readers of NapaValley.com can get a special discount that comes with some awesome extra amenities.
Insider Tip: In addition to their gourmet buffet breakfast, Wine Country Inn also has an excellent wine and cheese cocktail hour in the evening! Because we know you need an excuse to drink more wine, right?
We already know you love vineyards, but if your love of nature extends beyond those wine-producing grapes, then Chateau De Vie is the place for you. The understated elegance of the house is perfectly complimented by the formal gardens that surround, not to mention the stunning views of nearby vineyards. All of the rooms come with vineyard views but check out the King Jr Suite for sky light peeks of Mount St. Helena and the Palisade Mountains.
Insider Tip: Snuggle up in on one of Chateau De Vie’s complimentary hooded robes for the coziest evening in the Valley.
The winery and Inn at Salvestrin have been in the same family for 84 years. The family uses sustainable farming practices to keep their vineyards producing delicious handcrafted wines year after year. Their Inn is located in a historic farmhouse on the property and it’s perfect for anyone who’s looking for modern luxury with Victorian charm.
Insider Tip: Treat yourself to a taste of Salvestrin wine before you visit because if you love it, you should join their wine club. Members get a steep discount at the Inn!
The rural charm of Larkmead Country Inn even extends to the names of their rooms, which any wine lover will recognize as wine varietals. With only four guest rooms, the Larkmead Country Inn is perfect for people who are looking for some peace, privacy, and — of course — spectacular views. Two of the rooms, the Beaujolais and the Chablis, have private sundecks where you can enjoy a scrumptious breakfast before hitting the wine trail.
Insider Tip: This gem of an inn gets its charm from the fact that it’s an old school B&B. If you’re looking for a pristine, brand new place with hotel-style amenities, then this isn’t the spot for you. But if you want something quiet, unique, and charming? Book a room today.
