This is a comfortable room with a queen size feather bed and attached bathroom. The bedroom has two large windows with a garden view and vineyard view and an expansive view of Chiles Valley.
The private bathroom has a claw foot tub with shower attachment.
This is one of the five guest rooms in our guest house which shares a large commercial kitchen, large living room and dining room, and front and back decks with spectacular valley views.
The guesthouse is surrounded by gardens, lawn, walking paths, horse corrals, vineyards and an onsite winery.
The property is a 500+ acre ranch in a very remote part of the Napa Valley, approximately 7 miles or 15 minutes from the Silverado Trail at the town of Rutherford. There are no restaurants, shops or other commercial businesses within 7 miles of the ranch.
We serve a full country breakfast each morning and offer wine and hors d'oeuvres most evenings.
This is a place to explore or to just enjoy the peace and quiet and all of the animals that live on the property.
The RustRidge B&B is truly a unique spot in the CA wine country. We had a great time during our short stay and very much anticipate returning as soon as we can. You can craft your stay around many different interests: great wine at the ranch and in the surrounding area, hiking and exploring the Chiles Valley with the ranch as base camp, or a comfy place to stay while vising Napa.
Susan's guest house is located at the peaceful part of the Napa Valley right in the middle of the winery and a horse ranch. Therefore the this place was able to offer everything we wanted for last days of our honeymoon in California. The weather was far more warm than in nearby San Francisco, if you´re looking for the sun! We had wine tastings at Susan's winery (the Chardonnay is just great) and watched the gorgeous racing horses. We stayed at the Poolside Room which was decorated with a lovely combination of horse and native american style. The room had a nice bathroom with a skylight window. This room has also a straight access to the pool where we spend most of our afternoons. As Napa Valley's sun offered its best during the afternoon, we took a dip in the pool to cool down. You may also see some hummingbirds flying around the tree right to the pool. The breakfast offered was just superb with diverse selection of eggs, meat and fresh fruits. This property also offers nice activities such as hiking trails to the hill nearby and a tennis court (currently you might find it a bit worn out but we found it as a great surprise nevertheless). Lake Berryessa is a short drive away where it is possible to rent kayaks, paddle boards or even jet skis. Downtown St. Helena is a 15-20 minutes drive away where we found great restaurant, Tra Vigne to mention as one of the best ones we tried during our honeymoon in California! All in all we enjoyed our stay really well and this was a very good spot to just be and relax fully. The hosts Susan and Jim were extremely social and friendly and gave us all the tips we wanted to have. We can highly recommend for anyone looking for a relaxing or romantic getaway on the countryside!
I thought that Susan's place was very quaint and a nice breather away from the hub-bub of Napa Valley. I thought that the commute was a bit of a bear late at night, but it was well worth the differential in pricing
Tucked away and nowhere near the beaten tourists tracks this B&B offers offers a truly authentic and peaceful Napa-experience! The hosts were super nice and thoughtful and had lots of unique stories to tell and the breakfast was one of the best I had in California - with fresh figs straight out of their garden!
Had a wonderful, relaxing stay at Susan's ranch the night before a triathlon at Lake Berryessa. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking for an escape -- this place is definitely off the grid! The location is beautiful and if you're an animal lover, you'll really enjoy yourself -- we were greeted by Susan's very friendly yellow labs and spent time with the many cats that like to hang out on the front porch of the guest house. Also be sure to take advantage of the gorgeous, enormous kitchen -- great place to prepare a meal. Thank you to Susan for her hospitality and for sharing her beautiful space!
