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
Amazing super friendly staff, great rooms, nice outdoor area along the creek, great free breakfast in bed, free port in lobby for tasting and night cap, just overall wonderful experience. highly recommended.
Thoroughly enjoyed 3 nights here at this delightful accommodation. Beautiful setting, fabulous room, great house/inn and the most helpful attentive staff. Breakfast was first class, coffee and cookies available, during the day, port to help yourself too and cheese and wine every evening.
Missy was really helpful with directions and ideas for downtown Napa but special thanks go to Robert - a charming, interesting young man who was genuinely interested in us and went above and beyond - thank you.
Great service and comfortable room and bed with gallery. The bathroom was a tight fit for a 6-footer, but that is B&B life. The Inn is well situated to downtown Napa, and not far from any vineyard. The service was well personalized, and we felt like we had the Inn to ourselves. Some traffic noise in the morning, but it did not bother us. So easy to get to and from the places we wanted to go. Charming staff, good parking, great breakfast, and ubiquitous cookies and porto and afternoon wine & cheese. A great visit, and cap on our California vacation.
