A French country breakfast of house-made quiche, organic fruits, scones and fresh-squeezed orange juice is included and served where and when you prefer. Favorite spots are private decks overlooking the Napa River, in one of the Inn's many quiet courtyards, or in your own decadently fluffy bed. Afternoon wine pourings from local boutique vineyards, accompanied by hors d'oeuvres and cheeses from a nearby specialty shop and jazz piano from co-owner David Shapiro, are favorite perks of guests.

Spa Services:

New spa rooms opened in summer 2004 which include an outdoor whirlpool and more rooms for signature treatments such as a two-and-a-half hour ultra-private "couples circuit;" other signature treatments include an outdoor massage by the river, in-room couples massages, "soothing stone" treatment, and the "Milliken Trio," which focuses on the head, hands and feet.

Optional Amenities:

A Mercedes Benz chauffeur service available for wine tasting excursions. Private yoga classes next to the river can be arranged. In-room couples massages are available.

When Lisa Holt and David Shapiro took this former bed and breakfast under their wing, they transformed it into a luxury hideaway that is one part intimate retreat, one part luxury hotel. The result is a romantic reinterpretation of a historic building nestled alongside the Napa River amidst redwoods and Japanese maples. The zenlike approach to the decor, which was inspired by British Indian "campaign" design a la Raffles Hotel, is carried outside to riverside yoga classes, serene fountain courtyards and wood decks perfect for complementary picnic breakfasts.

The Inn consists of twelve rooms in three buildings, one the original 1857 carriage house that once served as the first stagecoach stop on the Old Mountain Road (renamed the Silverado Trail by miners during the Gold Rush). This chic and romantic hideaway offers guests all the pampering of a larger luxury hotel with the personalized service of a small owner-managed inn.

Guest rooms are designed for romance and feature push-button fireplaces, large whirlpool baths and rainfall showers, king-sized beds (some four-poster) and minibars stocked with chocolates, champagne and wine. A pillow menu allows you to choose among feather, foam and firm. Nightly turndown service involves tealight candles, rose petals and soft music.
