“Peaceful seclusion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

Wow:
Wonderful check-in, starting with a glass of wine
Beautiful property, with gorgeous views from the pool
Great food at the Boon Fly Cafe
Outdoor shower - what a treat to shower under the stars!
Little touches everywhere - every newspaper you could want at breakfast, and plenty of them; water and sunscreen brought to you at the pool...
Internet included (don't you hate being nickel and dimed other places?)
Your own private patio
Nice pool for kids
Good fitness center

Not so great:
Location - you will need to drive to most wineries (but you might not want to leave the property)

Overall, this place feels like a fantasy town, and you have your own private home in this perfect world. You will hate to leave!

Stayed April 2012, travelled as a couple

Had a wonderful stay at the Carneros Inn in April. The rooms are lovely with spacious bathrooms and heated floors. The service is excellent throughout. My favorite part of the hotel is the hilltop pool which overlooks vineyards - feels tranquil and quiet no matter how many people are there. We had brunch by the pool and the food was delicious. One small complaint is that they did not have umbrellas - and it was an unusually hot April weekend - at 90 degrees - so you could only spend so much time relaxing by the pool. The entire property is also quite beautiful - you feel like you are a world away from it all.

The hotel is a short distance from Napa and Yountville so plan on driving at least 10-15 minutes if you want to check out the area's restaurants.

This place exceeded our expectations. The accomodations (Mahoney, I think it was considered a premium gardern cottage) were terrific; clean, spacious, and comforable. The outdoor shower was a very nice touch as was the overhead heaters with the outdoor lounges. The pool was clean, scenic and usually quiet/ empty. The gym was up to date and excellent. We enjoyed the complimentary bikes. Didnt get to dine at Farm but really liked the breakfast and dinner at Boon Fly -- casual and really good food. My wife enjoyed the Spa. Staff was very nice. The only issue we had with place was location -- sort of got tired with the drive to Yountville and St. Helana a couple of times/day (10 - 20 minutes at least)

Overall: While not cheap, we thought it was very good value. We would return happily

Room Tip: Closer to the top pool was convenient

I freaking love this place. It might be the best place I have ever stayed at. We had a harvest cottage with an outdoor fireplace, dining area and TUB! The pool rocked. We got cocktails there in the afternoon. Great views. Great service. Will definitely go back (but might be awhile until we can afford it!) We even got a free upgrade and $40 breakfast credit daily.

Make sure you work some time into your itinerary to just enjoy yourself here. We actually decreased the number of tastings and restaurants that we went to just so we could hang out here.

We stayed at the Carneros Inn for a weekend over the summer. We booked a one-bedroom "Harvest Cottage." It wasn't cheap - with tax I think it was over $700. But it was one of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in, and the hotel was very enjoyable overall. The hotel sprawls out over a very large property. It is designed to feel like a small town. There are a couple of very good restaurants, a general store, postal services, etc. The hotel has a very nice pool and hot tub, as well as various other amenities that we didn't use. The main feature, was the room itself however. It consisted of a small cottage that was very luxuriously appointed, and a walled-in backyard area that contained an outdoor bathtub for two, chaise lounges, and some other amenities. It was all very quiet and peaceful, and a wonderful place to stay for a weekend.
