About this listing

The space

Zinfandel House is our home, situated on a wooded hillside a short distance up from Highway 29, halfway between the charming towns of St. Helena and Calistoga which are seven miles apart. Both towns have interesting shops and fine restaurants. Our decks offer spectacular views of the vineyards below, the beautiful mountains across the valley and majestic Mt. St. Helena to the north. Bothe State Park with hiking trails and picnic areas in its forest is our neighbor. Here in the heart of the wine country, we are close to many wineries and other nearby trails for jogging, walking or bicycling.

A room is set aside for reading, listening to music or browsing through our collection of books on food, wine and travel. Guests enjoy relaxing on the decks in summer or in front of the fire in winter. High speed Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the house and now in the bedrooms as well. Ours is a traditional, European-style Bed & Breakfast. We serve a full sit-down breakfast with delicious entrees. Come join us and have a relaxing visit in the Napa Valley.

This listing is for our smaller room with queen-sized bed and private bath next to bedroom. It overlooks the wooded view behind.

Here is a link to our larger room with king-sized bed and view of the beautiful valley below.

We stayed three nights at the Zinfandel House, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Bette is an extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and kind host. Every bit of advice we got was spot-on. Breakfasts were just right, and her B&B home is in a secluded, scenic spot, yet close to many wineries and restaurants. A nice spot just to unwind and relax or enjoy wine country at its best. Also, her little pooch LT is a well behaved cutie.

Great views from the living room and the breakfast room. Take some time to listen to some of Bette's stories and learn about how NAPA evolved. The location is ideal for getting to Calistoga and the North NAPA valley wineries. One of the best restaurants in NAPA is a couple of miles away at the Brasswood Winery. Don't miss it!

Bette is a wonderful host! We stayed in for two nights to attend a wedding nearby, and Bette's home was the perfect place for us. Bette is gracious and easy to talk to, and she made us feel very much at home. The views from her rooms are beautiful, and the area was a lot of fun to explore around our wedding plans. If you have time, definitely go for a hike in the neighboring state park! Don't hesitate on booking with Bette, you will have a great stay!

Bette was awesome. This house is great. It's perched on the side of the hill with amazing views. My bed was SO comfortable, I've never slept so hard in my life. The entire house was quiet, very peaceful. I had a great time.

Bette User ProfileBette is a superhost.

Your hostess, Bette, a retired secondary school teacher, shared with her late husband, George, a passion for promoting the Napa Valley wine industry and culture. George’s vocation as a petroleum geologist was enriched by his avocation as a university wine educator, writer and judge at historical wine tastings. He did much to encourage and promote the wine industry and culture in Napa Valley. Bette and George became partners of a small winery in the late seventies and moved to the valley permanently in 1980. While continuing his teaching wine appreciation classes at Napa College, he was a pioneering wine columnist for the local Napa Valley newspapers for almost 25 years. They opened Zinfandel House Bed and Breakfast, including an extensive wine library, in their hillside home in 1981. Their interest in food, wine and people continues to make having a Bed and Breakfast a rewarding and, for guests, an enjoyable and unique experience.
