A car is needed.
No parties or entertaining.
No smoking on property.
1 well behaved small, non-shedding dog is welcome. Please communicate about the dog prior to arrival so we know what to expect and can put a dog bed in the cottage.
The St. Helena Cottage is an excellent spot. It is beautifully decorated. It is more spacious than we anticipated. The two outdoor areas are lovely--nice, relaxing spaces to enjoy some food, drink or reading.
The cottage has everything one needs for a weekend getaway. While it feels somewhat remote and is quite peaceful, the cottage is conveniently located close to wineries and restaurants.
Elaine was a great host. She was very responsive to all our inquiries. She was friendly, helpful and afforded us a great deal of privacy. We will definitely be back provided Elaine will have us again.
Had a wonderful several-day long stay in the cottage. Elaine was a very accommodating, generous and responsive host. Location was excellent: very secluded and charming yet close to downtown St Helena and easy access to anywhere in the Valley. I would highly recommend it and hope to return for another stay!
The listing didnt do the place justice! great location, clean, everything you could need/want for a stay in napa.
The listing description is very accurate. The place was a little hard to find the first time but no big deal. Elaine made us feel very welcome and supplied us with all the things we need. She even brought us some fresh milk! Really loved staying there and will most likely repeat when we visit the are again.
Can't wait for my next trip to St. Helena and a return to Elaine's pristine cottage. Perfectly located for CIA and so comfortable to return to after a day there or anywhere. She's so lovely and interesting. Wish I could have stayed much longer. The cottage is spotless, well-appointed and exactly my style -- outdoor space included. Many thanks!
A truly great escape for two. Comfortable bed with a separate couch/tv area. I appreciated the remote for the heater so I could turn it on before getting out of bed in the morning. Small fridge and coffee provided so we brought breakfast sandwiches and heated them up in the provided microwave to enjoy with our coffee. Easy and convenient before our days of wine tasting.
Very convenient to the wineries we went to in St Helena, Spring Mountain and Stags Leap area.
There are lots of windows and light. Two outdoor seating areas that we didn't get to enjoy because it was just a bit too chilly at night by the time we got back in the evening.
The smaller windows don't have blinds so if you need it dark in the morning to sleep bring an eye mask. I'm an early riser so it didn't bother me but it might to some.
Elaine is a gracious host and definitely made sure we had everything we needed. It was perfect for us and so much better than staying at a hotel!
Beautiful little, private, cottage about 5-10 minute drive from St Helena. Very clean, well supplied, would definitely recommend to a couple going to explore Napa Valley.
I have lived in the Napa Valley for almost 20 years and love it here. What better way to share it then with my lovely guest cottage? I enjoy hiking, the arts, wine and the Valley's many fabulous restaurants.
