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
150 year old building, renovated extensively, with several new rooms added, on the Napa River. Very classy decor and features. Drinks, cookies, fruit, Port wine, always out and available. Several terraces and outdoor relaxing areas. The folks running the place were delightful and took very good care of us, including a late afternoon cheese and wine pairing session. I would stay again but try to avoid the room we were assigned this time. Overall it was a very nice place we would definitely consider visiting again.
We would highly recommend the Milliken Creek Inn! The luxury room was perfect. The staff was incredibly helpful from selecting restaurants, to places to visit to vineyards. Everyone was friendly and polite. You will not be disappointed! It was one of our favorite hotel experiences to date! We will definitely return.
The neighborhood at the middle of the forest and besides the river is a quiet place to meditate, the service was excelent, the amenities exceeded expectations, the housewives were very nice, the housekeepers and the administrative group were very nice
Not only was this a fabulous location and Inn but everything and everyone made the stay magical. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful . Every evening a local vineyard owner would give a free wine tasting and introduction to their wines for about 2hours which also meant you could chat to the other guests staying and learn about the local wines and it’s location made it easy to see Napa Valley and all it had to offer .
Wow, everything about this boutique hotel was fantastic, they really have thought of every detail.
Beautiful, spacious room with great decor, huge comfortable bed, balcony looking over the creek, romantic fire and even a cute rubber duck to take home.
Cheese and wine tasting in the early evening to sample local vineyards.
Very helpful and welcoming staff.
A total pleasure of a place. We will be back!!
