Carneros Inn | Napa Valley luxury resort

Carneros Inn is a very different kind of resort in the Napa Valley wine country. Located in the midst of acres of rolling farmland, guests get the sense of living on a vineyard. Rooms on the perimeter of the property look out over the fields - a spectacular sight during the growing season.

From the outside, cottages look like accommodations that might once have housed farm workers. The simple architecture features wooden porches and corrugated steel roofs. But once you step inside your 450 square foot cottage, you enter a world of refined luxury. Floors are made of Brazilian cherry wood. Beds are made with Frette linens. Inside and outside showers in all accommodations are a trademark feature of Carneros Inn. Your own private courtyard offers the utmost in privacy and seclusion.

Spa, anyone? Conde Nast readers voted the Spa at Carneros the 16th rated spa in the US. The resort offers two pools, expansive fitness facilities, 5000 square feet of meeting space, as well as shopping opportunities on the resort.

Only 45 minutes from San Francisco or the East Bay, Carneros Inn is a great place for a quick romantic getaway - or even for dinner at The Farm, one of three fine dining establishments on the resort. Virtuoso guests receive a 10-15% discount off the published rates, a complimentary Full Breakfast daily, and upgrades on arrival if available. These and many other valuable amenities offer exclusive values to clients of a Virtuoso luxury travel consultant.
