Hidden beneath century-old gnarled oaks, Milliken Creek Inn & Spa sits on the grassy banks of the Napa River. Once a stagecoach stop in the late 1800s, it’s now a discreetly sexy 12-room inn marrying the amenities of a luxury hotel with the personalized service of a small inn. There are only 12 rooms, so you’ll rarely see another guest, unless you linger in one of the leather club chairs by the downstairs fireplace during the nightly wine hour, when vintners share their wines (and knowledge of winemaking) with the inn’s guests. The look is decidedly sophisticated – not fancy or stuffy – designed with a nod to a British colonial style: khaki walls, dark wood and the occasional furnishing of woven rattan and Southeast Asian statuary. The made-to-order breakfast is served not in a dining room but in your own room or on the Waterfall Terrace, at the time you choose. And it’s right at the foot of Silverado Trail, Napa’s lesser-known rural highway, ideal for quick getaways up-valley. The Milliken Creek Spa may be small, but it’s treatments (like the signature grapeseed exfoliating massage) are worth the splurge.
In the Area
Taste your way through Napa’s local, artisanal specialties at the Oxbow Public Market. End with lunch on the patio of the market’s Kitchen Door restaurant, which serves family style, market-driven fare courtesy of veteran Napa chef Todd Humphries. With more than 230 wineries in Napa Valley, there’s no shortage of choice. Milliken Creek’s concierge can arrange discounted (sometimes free) tastings at great wineries. If you’re looking to get in shape and try great wines, hit the trail with Napa Valley Bike Tours.
How to Get There
A must stay! My husband and I had a marvelous visit to Napa. Milliken Creek Inn is the perfect place to relax and explore the area. Missy gave us great recommendations. We loved having breakfast delivered to our room. We had it on the balcony every day. Absolutely wonderful!
We also decided to get a massage and went back for a second because it was so good!
We will go back!
We are so grateful for this beautiful spot. Location, decorations, and the people make this place so incredibly special :) When we learned that they offer Free breakfast we thought we will get some muffins and fruit, but it was full on delicious breakfast.
We will be back 100%
What a lovely 4 night stay. Set on the banks of the creek this is a great place. The staff were so nice. Deer, otters, woodpeckers as we breakfasted on our balcony. Very comfy bed as spa bath. Breakfast was delivered to room bang on time every morning.
