Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you need. We have a listing of fun things to do, wineries and suggested restaurants on our business website.
On a country road, 5 minutes to town, set in the hills with vineyards bordering the property, the road is perfect for walking and biking. Only a 15 minute bike ride to town.
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.
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.
This was a very special place to stay on our first trip to the Napa Valley. Elaine's home is beautiful and the pictures don't do justice to the beautiful decor details and the leafy, peaceful setting. It was the perfect base to visit St Helena (very close) and Yountville and then escape for a little tranquil downtime. She has thought of everything to make guests comfortable and the cottage is separate so there is a real feeling of privacy. We loved it.
The listing was exactly as described, stylish, clean and comfortable. The bonus was the field of wildflowers and flitting butterflies just behind the property and in view through the window.
Really nice, clean and updated space. I would recommend to anyone visiting St. Helena.
Elaine's Cottage was the perfect place to stay for our weekend in the Napa Valley. We like the northern end of the valley and the cottage was a great location for us and an easy drive to St. Helena and Calistoga. It is the perfect size for a couple. The bed is comfortable and the bedding is very warm - which we appreciated since we don't like having the heat on at night. The cottage is well designed and very clean. We'd highly recommend it.
Elaine's cottage exceeded our expectations in every way. Though the photos provided online are lovely, they do not fully capture the unique charm and warm atmosphere of this cottage.
With regard to cleanliness, the cottage was impeccably clean and prepared for our arrival early in the day. There was no shortage of clean linens or dishes, and there was even a picnic mat for those lovely sunny days in Napa Valley.
When we had trouble finding the exact location on the map, Elaine was quick to answer and provide us with detailed directions to the cottage. Throughout our stay, Elaine was available and willing to provide recommendations for dining and winery locales in the area.
We sincerely appreciate the care she takes in preparing a welcoming, cozy, and clean place for her guests. We would highly recommend her cottage as the ideal location for a stay in 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.
