We invite you to experience the romantic charm and "warm and enthusiastic hospitality" of our 1872 Victorian bed and breakfast inn.

In this perfect location...
right in the center of the finest wineries of Napa Valley...

You can walk to fine and casual dining, historic Beringer Vineyards and unique shopping in beautiful and quaint downtown St. Helena.

Our goal is to offer you the finest combination of luxury, hospitality and history garnished with our famous mouth-watering full gourmet champagne breakfasts and the premium wines and cheeses that we serve each evening. Crystal decanters of Port are in each guestroom for a nightcap if you should want one.

St. Helena also affords luxury and relaxation in the hot springs, a perfect way to unwind, perhaps followed by a massage or a mud bath. Those looking for a little more adventure can charter a balloon or glider ride over Napa Valley. If you prefer to view this fair city on the ground visit the various museums and historical sites in the area or wander through delightful shops and boutiques on the main street. Golf, tennis, bicycling, hiking, and swimming are available for those who seek an active holiday while in St. Helena.

We have just completed a ceiling to floor remodel of the entire inn; 
all in soft yellows and rose.

Dreamy lace invites the sunshine quietly into each romantic guestroom. 

Each is stunningly charming and has its own distinct personality with all of your comforts in mind;  fine linens, luxurious private bathrooms and carefully selected antiques.

After dining find quality port in a crystal decanter in y our room or step downstairs to our hot tub in a secluded private courtyard area. Reflect on the day and enjoy each other or use therapy jets to soften tight muscles…before a fabulous wine country slumber. 

Awaken to the aroma of the inn's own blend of coffee... that is just a start as breakfast is an event every day. For you we serve a full gourmet champagne breakfast complete with Eggs Benedict, Belgian Waffles, or stuffed French toast; fresh fruits; our home-baked breads and croissants; a selection of premium teas, coffee, fresh juice and champagne of course!
