America’s legendary wine, food and wellness destination. The Napa Valley is home to the founders of America’s wine industry - legendary entrepreneurs who showed the world that the high art of winemaking had crossed continents. The very word Napa stands for ‘Land of Plenty,’ the original meaning given to the region by its first inhabitants, the Wappo Indians. The Valley itself is one of the most rare and precious agricultural preserves on earth - a place that moves in perfect synchrony with the seasons. In addition to being recognized as one of the “Great Wine Capitals of the World,” The Napa Valley is prized for its natural beauty, phenomenal culinary scene, world-class accommodations, and one- of-a-kind spa experiences including the region’s famed mud baths and mineral hot springs.

Come sit by the fire, savor a delicious Mendocino vintage, stare up into a mighty redwood tree or watch migrating whales from the porch of one of our unique inns.
