The staff were attendant yet not in your way, rooms were beyond anything we expected. Nothing left out and lots of extras to make the stay wonderfully pleasant. They are close to everything in the valley and the Super shuttle van was on time to take us to dinner and come back to pick us up making it easy to enjoy the dinner and wine. The wine tsting and breakfast were both off the charts. My fiancé' and I will come back here every time we come to the valley to wine taste and relax. Im really picky about my bed, and this place has nicer more comfortable beds than my own, guess ill have to upgrade now at home ..Lastly, being forgetful, I left something in my room and they made the effort to get it to me immediately.. That's better service than 5 star :)..


Cant wait to come back..

We spent four days in Kate's Cottage at the Wine Country Inn. The Inn is a romantic hideaway located between Freemark Abbey and Duckhorn wineries in St Helena. The surroundings are impeccable (swimming pool, hot tub, outdoor dining, landscaped grounds) but the vineyard view from our patio was spectacular! We even just stayed in two evenings (one night ordered pizza to go with our wine, and the inn driver picked it up for us) just to enjoy the comfortable surroundings and the ambiance by the gas fireplace. When we did leave the property for dinner, the inn provided a designated driver to take you and pick you up after your meal. What service!!!

Check-in was very easy and the staff were all eager to please. The rooms were spotless and well furnished. From setting up dinner reservations, balloon information and reservations, everything was effortless. Carole assisted with all the pre-arrival reservations and even an upgrade from a suite to the cottage as we were celebrating. Breakfasts were a great beginning to our day. Luckily, our package included their all day wine tour, including an excellent lunch back at the inn. We were the only guests that day and received royal treatment as we visited five local, but very different style, wineries. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you choose to go on your own, the inn has arranged for complimentary tastings all around Napa. Even at the end of a busy day (4:30 to 6 pm), the inn arranges for a local wine merchant to pour their wines with inn made appetizers (no need for a full dinner if you indulge). Just enjoy. A wonderful romantic retreat in wine country.

Room Tip: Cottages are so inviting you will not want to leave.

Phil, Jackie,

Great to hear from you both. We're so glad that you had a fabulous time at The Wine Country Inn. Yes, many guests skip a go-out-to-a-restaurant dinner and instead lounge on our large private patios with those beautiful vineyard views. As we tell our guests at checkin, "it doesn't get much better in Wine Country than this!"

Marty and Chef Ryan both say hi. And again, happy anniversary.

Best,

Tim
General Manager

I picked the wine country inn to propose to my GF of 4 1/2 years as we had spent much of our time together taking trips out to Sonoma/napa while we lived in San Francisco. I picked Kate's Cottage which was amazing, great size, fireplace, huge bathroom and had it's own outdoor area looking onto the vineyards. Kelly helped me plan everything and was fantastic and perfect when arrived, she had setup rose petals, champagne etc I even had the ring delivered the day of and it was waiting in the cottage upon arrival. They even suggested restaurants for our stay. The happy hour wine and breakfast was also fantastic, not too much selection but enough to enjoy. There were only two downsides to the stay, we did a wine excursion and it wasn't as good as expected, seem to be taken to a lot of the wineries the driver knew as friends and nothing special, no tours or behind door experiences we were expecting, would suggest you book your own tour instead. The other was the noise of construction next door which couldn't be helped, building a house very close to the property. Overall it was a great experience and would suggest to anyone.

Room Tip: Cottage is the way to go

Congratulations on your engagement! We're so glad that the Wine Country Inn could play a role in such a special event. And yes, Kelly on our team is the Super Concierge--from dinner reservations to special wine tours to helping create special occasions, she's the one to go to!

I do understand your comments about our Wine Tour, and I will talk to our two drivers about that. They do like to take our guests to places where they know the tasting room folks, to ensure that our guests are treated very well (as opposed to potentially getting someone at the winery who we have never met, who might be stuffy or even rude). But perhaps that has gone a bit too far.

And yes, with neighbors building a house nearby, there has been some noise during mid-week days. The good news is that they have basically finished the house--yay.

Best,

Tim

First of all the rooms are beautiful! The staff members are very friendly and very helpful (e.g. making reservations for dinner etc....) Complimentary breakfast is always fantastic w/a large variety of fresh items to choose from. Complimentary wine & cheese in the late afternoon. We've stayed at the Inn 3xs and will continue to return every year!

We spent 3 nights at The Wine Country Inn in May. The staff was fantastic - welcoming, very helpful and responsive to all our questions and requests. The breakfast buffet is well worth getting up for and the late afternoon wine tasting is a pleasant way to close the day and meet other guests. Our room was spacious and well-appointed including a fireplace and balcony with a nice view of the surrounding vineyards and countryside. The bed was comfortable and provided a good night's sleep. The bathroom was large but the lack of window coverings over the picture window gave us some concerns about privacy. The wine tour offered by the Inn is well-worth taking as we visited several out of the way boutique wineries with the driving left to Tracy. The evening shuttle to many area restaurants is a great benefit as you don't have to worry about finding parking and can enjoy a nice bottle of wine with your dinner. The Inn is well worth the value. We hope to return in the future.

My husband wanted to take me to a Napa Valley retreat where we would be in the middle of a vineyard (check!); where the service was impeccabble (check); where the food was superior (double-check!!) and the feel was cozy and not "corporate" (check!)

Our stay at the Wine Country Inn was all of the above. On 2 of the nights, we never even went out for dinner because the "snacks" at the daily (wine) happy hour at the inn were so scrumptious and filling we just didn't need dinner. Each evening a different vintner shares some of their wines at the happy hour and the chef (onsite, fulltime, gourmet!!) seems to tailor his food to the wines.
The ambiance was quiet but social. We met new people (other guests) every day at breakfast who shared ideas of places to visit and wines to try during our stay.
I'm trying to think of anything I didn't like about the Inn and I just cannot think of a thing. (a little pricey but the quality is definitely there!!)

Room Tip: Queen #23 has a jaccuzzi!

Hi there,

We love to "wow" guests like we wowed you two! Yes, our vineyard setting sets us apart from most other properties in the Napa Valley. And we work hard as a team to provide great service to our guests without being stuffy or pretentious. And I love your description that the "feel was cozy and not 'corporate.'" That's us!

Hope to see you both again soon.

After booking a room at another hotel and finding it inadequate upon arrival, this was a hidden gem. They got everything right from beginning to end. The friendly and professional front desk staff gave us a warm welcome when we called to see if we could get a room last minute. It was so refreshing to stay at a place where they get it right! From the friendly front desk staff to the delicious food prepared by Chef Ryan (don't miss his amazing salsas) to the dinner car service staff, our stay here was spectacular! The pool was lovely and the views were relaxing.
I can't wait to come back for another visit!!!
