Carneros Resort and Spa

Staying at the Carneros Resort and Spa in Napa Valley’s southernmost sub-region is a real treat. Spacious, farm-style cottages are sophisticated and airy, with just as much thought placed on the interiors as on the outdoor spaces to create the perfect easy-breezy Wine Country experience. Spend your days lounging beside one of the two pools (one is adults-only, the other family-friendly), getting a massage at the guest-only spa, dining on sumptuous Wine Country fare at the resort’s on-site restaurants, and getting cozy in front of your private outdoor fireplace each night. As a bonus, the hotel is conveniently close to Napa Valley’s main thoroughfares — Highway 29 and Highway 12 — yet feels a world away.
