Silverado Resort and Spa

Classic Napa Valley elegance and luxury await at the Silverado Resort. The spa, restaurant, and rooms are all impeccably maintained, but the real reason to stay here is the activities: two PGA championship golf courses, 13 tennis courts (which host national tournaments), bocce ball courts, and a modern fitness center are all on the resort grounds and are available to guests.

Milliken Creek Inn and Spa

Hidden away on three lush acres along the Napa River, the Milliken Creek Inn & Spa is a true escape.

La Belle Epoque

The Queen Anne Victorian home that houses La Belle Epoque is over 120 years old, but a tasteful renovation has upgraded this “painted lady” for modern tastes. They haven’t let go of all tradition, however: tea is still served daily from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the formal dining room, and the organic, farm-to-table, three-course breakfast is something truly special.

Insider Tip

Ask Tracy to share the history of the house and direct you on a self-guided walking tour of the other historic Victorian homes in the area.

Andaz Napa

Napa’s hippest hotel award belongs to Andaz Napa, the crown jewel of downtown’s First Street. The edgy artwork, and fireplace suites create a lively but luxurious experience, and the cavernous lobby is the place to be in the evenings, with live music, free massages, and a hopping bar scene.
