“Fun day in Napa”
Reviewed 23 June 2011

Traveling through Napa Valley and was suggested to try this place. In all my trips to the area for wine tasting, I had never stayed here. What a gem, great location; a little oasis on two acres with the mountains and vineyards and the gardens made for a relaxing peaceful stay. We stayed in the main building on the second floor with a deck over looking the grounds. Breakfast was nice and a good way to start the day. Staff were all pleasant and helpful really seemed to want to help.

Will add to my list of must visit again. Hope they have rooms in the fall - should be very pretty.

Thanks for the relaxing stay!

We had a great experience during our stay at La Residence, The property is tucked away in a beautifully wooded garden area with gorgeous flower beds, plants and water fountains. The grounds are perfectly manicured and clean. It is perfectly located within minutes of the Napa Valley wine country and the vineyards. The staff, managed by Graham Yallop, was as downhome friendly and helpful as you can get. They went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The concierge, Kimberly Lund made the recommendations and the reservations for all of our wine tasting tours at the vineyards as well as the restaurants we dined at each evening. Outstanding selections. Each tour and restaurant was top shelf. The building we stayed in at La Residence was a beautifully rennovated and antique furnished vineyard mansion built in the late 1800's. We can't say enough about how great our stay was and how well were treated. It was like we were among old friends. We absolutely would not stay anywhere else when we come back again to the Napa Valley wine country.

La Residence is a lovely homey property, nestled into a vineyard setting, and close to all that Napa has to offer. They offer suites, a nice pool, beautiful garden setting, and grapes growing in the yard. The is a wine reception daily at 6:00 featuring local wine and cheese.

The staff is friendly and helpful. If you are planning a function, Alana is wonderful to work with and will accommodate any request that she can.

They also offer a small meeting space. A business meeting horseshoe style seating can accommodate approximately 12, with limited catering.

We have stayed at La Residence several times, by ourselves and with a group of friends and we just had to comment on our new favorite Napa retreat. What a wonderful hidden gem right on the main drag at the gateway to the valley. Just minutes from all that the valley has to offer. From arrival to checkout everything was perfect. The staff, the grounds, the rooms, the service, all were above our expectaions. Even a vinyard in the middle of the property. They will help with every detail of your stay, you just have to ask. Some of the best sleep that we have ever had. The patio is a great place to meet and greet fellow travelers while you enjoy the wine casual wine hour. Check it out; you won't be dissappointed.

Room Tip: All rooms have unique charming country decor

For the most part, we enjoyed our stay at La Residence, but it lacked the "wow" factor I was hoping for and the "luxury" that their website describes. At the price I was paying, I expected more.

Likes:
- Grounds: The best part of the Inn. Lots of little gardens and sitting places to read a book or sip a glass of wine.
- Location: Easy access on Rt. 29 with wineries and restaurants all within an easy drive.
- There is a nice pool, but it wasn't heated and we found the water too cold when we would come back around 6pm and therefore didn't use it. If you took a day off from touring, this would be a nice respite. We did use the hot tob and this was great! We found the wine hour was a great time to use the hot tub. All the other guests were there and we got the tub to ourselves after a day of touring.
- Nice evening wine reception with plenty of tasty treats.
- Nice breakfasts with fruit salad, pastries and your choice of 2 main dishes. A nice way to start your day of touring. Although, each day we were there, both choices were a form of eggs. It would be nice to have another option.
- All of the staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Dislikes:
- Our room was in the Mansion house. While it was quaint, comfortable and clean, I wouldn't say it was "luxurious" by any means. The decor, furnishings and linens were nothing special. At this price point, I expected a luxury spa and we got a country inn. I'm sure other rooms were nicer, but they came way over our budget.
- Noise: Our room was on the first level and unfortunately both right within the main door and at the bottom of a staircase, making for some foot-traffic noise. There is also the noise from the highway out front. Furthermore, there were chairs on the front porch outside our windows and other guests would occassionally sit there and chat. No fault of the Inn, just oblivious tourists who can't think beyond themselves. We were only there 2 nights, but I would have requested a room change if staying longer.
- The hot water took a while to heat up, but when it finally kicked in, it was scalding. We also didn't like that our room had the sink located in the bedroom area, outside of the bathroom.

I would stay here again if I somehow got a special rate, but otherwise would save the money and spend it on a nice dinner or other aspects of the trip. In the end, we spent very little time at the hotel and most of our time out touring and tasting.

This was our second stay at La Residence, and we cannot wait to go back. The rooms are fabulous, large, nicely decorated, super clean. The property is gorgeous, grapevines right out side our room, with lovely chairs and a table, you can view the stars at night and enjoy a glass of wine.....

Very quiet...........very cozy.........

The evening wine and appetizers are a great way to start off the evening on the main patio. Breakfast was equally tasty, and a great way to start the day..........
