This modern home is located down a country lane, 4 blocks from downtown, in Saint Helena, the "heart of the Napa Valley" wine country. You will be a short walk or drive from dozens of vineyards, wineries, restaurants and shops for which Saint Helena is famous. The year around beauty associated with the wine industry surrounds our home in every direction.
Our home is ideal for 2 couples (or singles) who value the privacy provided by two very separate bedrooms on separate floors, each with a private bath. For the same rate per night if your group needs 3 beds, up to 6 guests can be accommodated by using the comfortable, double bed located in the open loft on the 2nd floor of the main house; a terrific value. Please note however, that the second floor bathroom, which is accessed through the loft bedroom, is shared with the other bedroom on the 2nd floor. Alternatively, 2nd floor guests can use the first floor bath which is accessed from the hall as well as directly from the 1st floor bedroom. (ie 2 separate entrances to the bath)
This property is great for gatherings for family/friend reunions, special birthdays, as well as business meetings. Several unique outdoor areas invite enjoying that great bottle of wine. Indoors, gather around the, grand piano, and dining/conference table that comfortably seats six guests. The floor plan has spaces to facilitate your entire group, as well as peaceful secluded areas to retreat to and recharge. A cottage, not available for rental, and separate from the main house you are occupying, may be occupied by the owners during your stay; typically only during the late Fall/Winter/early Spring months.
All beds have 100% cotton linens, feather comforters and pillows with one set of 100% cotton towel sets per guest stored adjacent to the beds. The first floor bedroom has an antique, French- sleigh, king bed and adjacent bath with tiled shower. The airy, vaulted-ceiling 2nd floor bedroom has a cal-king bed with deck and bath with tiled shower. Additionally, there is an American 1850's four poster double bed in the 2nd floor loft that has curtains that can be drawn for visual privacy.
The kitchen/dining area has been recently remodeled to open up and enhance guests gathering around the beautiful granite topped peninsula separating the 2 areas. Kitchen fixtures include a Thermadore gas range, Shaw sink. refrigerator with ice/water dispenser and wood counters.
