Adorable B&B. Room was nice - we stayed in Winery Room, and loved the stone walls. Breakfast was AMAZING everyday. Great customer service. Located off the main road - so it was secluded yet any destination was easily accessible. Snuggled in between vineyards. Highly recommend.

Thank you so much for the great review.

I never got to stay there... as the fires caused me to cancel my trip. However, I took 7 other trips this year... all in 5 star hotels. I prepaid 3 months in advance to travel alone and cross Napa off of my bucket list....More
