This is one of several bedrooms in our large ranch guest house in Napa Valley. We grow grapes and have a winery on our 500 acre property.
Guests of the ranch enjoy the unique experience of waking up in a beautiful and remote vineyard in the eastern hills of Napa Valley.
We serve a wonderful country breakfast each morning. You can walk through the vineyards, hike up the hills or just sit by the pool and enjoy the peaceful and natural surroundings.
The Oaks is a large bedroom with a queen feather bed, hardwood floors and four large windows facing ancient oak trees. The bedroom opens up to a large deck overlooking a lawn, flowers, trees and forest.
The private bath, with tub and shower is detached from the room and is on the hall right outside the bedroom.
The ranch is located approximately 8.5 miles from the Silverado Trail at Rutherford. It is a 20 minute drive to the town of St. Helena.
Susan and Jim are very nice people and were very welcoming. Their place is part of a working vineyard and winery and they offered tastings of their fine wines every afternoon. The hosts are quite knowledgeable about winemaking and the wine economy of Napa Valley, and also of horse breeding, and they share their knowledge generously. That makes for a much more interesting experience than the typical B&B.
Breakfast was substantial, flavorful, and offered a range of choices to suit any diet. The other guests were fun to talk to. The indoor public spaces are large and comfortable and offer a good place to hang out if the weather turns inclement. There is a lot of horse paraphernalia around the house, reflecting Jim's passion for thoroughbreds. Overall, the place feels more like you're visiting someone's house than staying in a commercial B&B. ** My room (the Oaks Room) was comfortable and well-appointed, and was quite serviceable despite the fact that the bathroom is across the hall. The room was spacious enough but not large. Outside, the windows of the Oaks room are shaded by a broad and heavily-grown trellis, so if you want sunlight streaming into your windows, pick another one of the rooms. The pictures of the room are a fair representation, other than the room feels a little less light and bright than what the pictures indicate. ** The outdoor public spaces could use a little modernizing but the hot tub is great: a good temperature, bubbly, and clean. And the pool is very nice as well. ** The wifi was fast and reliable, however I could not get voice or text reception on my verizon phone without driving off the property. (My phone is a 3G phone, 3-4 years old; you might have better luck.) ** The town of Saint Helena is about 20 minutes away, and the drive is a pretty one through winding wooded roads and past other vineyards. There is very little traffic on the road. Saint Helena offers a wide range of restaurants, shops, and parks, and many vineyards are nearby. ** All in all, it's a very nice experience.
