My wife and I have been wanting to stay at the Meadowood for over three years. The timing finally came together Jan 2018! The property is awesome! Pristine, quiet, and very private.

We stayed in the Woodland Suite, approximately 600 square feet with a California king bed, a full body length window seat for reading, separate sitting room, and a cozy fireplace. We also had a private patio area for outdoor reading and relaxing. Unfortunately, we couldn't maximize the outdoor chairs because of rain.

We took a quick tour of The Spa and immediately booked massage treatments after viewing the private couples suite that includes a private bathroom, steam shower, separate seating area for relaxing or reading and two massage tables. Unlike most spa treatments where you change in a locker room, wait in a central waiting area with other people, get walked to your treatment room, then walked back to the locker room, the Meadowood Spa suite experience is designed so you never have to leave the private suite! They have several spa treatment options all of which include about 3 hours in the private suite. Book your spa reservation in advance, they open at 9:30 am, so you have the afternoon open for wine tasting. 60-minute massage in the private suite is $225, a 60-minute facial is $235. They also have a mineral soaking bath at 140 degrees along with a tranquil garden area where you can enjoy a cup of tea and other snacks.

We didn't have time to play tennis or croquet but we did participate in an early morning fitness classes: Cardio Weight Training with Kerry. Classes are complimentary and you just show up for classes at the designated time. Classes are 6:15 am to 1:15 pm on Wednesdays and Fridays. On the other days, the schedule varies. Other classes include Stretch and Relax, Gentle Yoga, Core Balance, TRX Circuit Training, Callanetics, Cycle, Pilates. We also hiked 1 of 3 different trails on the property. We did the 1.6-mile Fitness Loop. The Meadowood Loop is the longest trail at 2.4 miles. They also have 6 running routes 2-12 miles long and 5 biking routes 10-28 miles long. We used the Meadowood bikes and rode to Lake Hennessey. It was about a 12 mile there and back with some pretty long steep climbs!

The Meadowood staff was exceptional! Ryan Dorman, our Guest Services Rep, was awesome! He scheduled a private wine tasting for us at Quintessa and Stony Hill the very same day we arrived in St Helena! He provided us with a personalized itinerary with directions and maps. It was just a very nice touch that we appreciated. The following day, Ryan booked another private wine tasting at Failla and an olive oil tasting at Round Pond. The next time we go to Meadowood, we'll reach out to Ryan to help plan our next visit with more advance notice. Ryan was exceptional!

We dined at the 3 star Michelin "The Restaurant" and it was amazing! (That will be a separate review.) Unfortunately, Chef Christopher Kostow was at the One & Only Palmilla in Cabo so we didn't get to meet him at "The Restaurant" or at The Charter Oak Restaurant where we dined the night before.

Overall, Meadowood is the best of the best and highly recommended!

Wonderful venue for our group’s annual retreat. This is the second year we have stayed here. I am sure we will be back. Beds were very comfortable. My daughter stayed on the couch and is was as comfortable as my bed!

A wonderful experience from beginning to end. Did not want to leave the grounds it was so beautiful. Light a fire, open a bottle of wine and relax in the beautifully appointed rooms. The hiking trails are manageable with stunning views. Next visit we'll find time for croquet. The setting is right out of a movie. Thanks Meadowood.

Dear leerC317TJ,

I’m delighted your time on the estate was wonderful! Meadowood is known for its natural setting and classic architecture which do have a positively transformative effect. The fireplace is one of my favorite room features as well; regardless of the season, there is something timeless and ever so relaxing about lighting a fire and curling up with a glass of wine. The hiking trails are just one of the many amenities offered on property and sometimes seem to be one of our best kept secrets! I look forward to welcome you back so you can experience croquet!

Best Regards,

Dear Lillian L,

Thank you for the lovely review. I am pleased you enjoyed our relaxing setting. It is restorative to look out of the windows of our rooms to find nature and tranquility. Although our fitness center is being remodeled we currently have a temporary fitness center with all of our cardio and strength training equipment. And, we continue to offer all our daily complimentary fitness classes to guests. I hope that we will have the pleasure of welcoming you back when our beautifully refreshed center re-opens!

Best Regards,

This s our third stay at Meadowood and the attention to detail that the staff displays with every guest is amazing. Combining the stay with a dinner at the Restaurant is a memorable experience and reflect the best of what Napa has to offer.
