Flanked by the Mayacamas Mountains and offering enchanting views of the surrounding vineyards, Harvest Inn’s 78 units are spread out among the four branches of the resort (Rose, Vineyard, Fountain, and Manor House), which cover eight acres of well-manicured gardens. A carved wooden bar, towering stone fireplace and exposed beam ceilings lend an Old World elegance to the cozy spaces, which are dotted with overstuffed sofas and buttery leather armchairs. Oversized rooms are designed for romance with Mission style oak wood beds, 400 thread-count linens and marble bathrooms stocked with Aveda products. Many rooms have gas-burning fireplaces, patios and soaking tubs. Some have private terraces with hot tubs for two. The rooms also feature fluffy robes, a flat-screen TV, a bottle of wine from a local vineyard and a coffee maker for your morning cup of joe. After a long day of exploring, book an in-room grape-seed facial and body scrub or lounge by one of two pools/hot tubs, then sample an array of vinos in front of a cozy cobblestone hearth. Chef Charlie Palmer helms the hotel’s locavore restaurant, Harvest Table, which serves dishes like pan roasted wild king salmon and organic chicken with roasted artichokes and cipollini onions. The concierge will be happy to suggest some nearby haunts, and can get you into most places. (Just don’t ask about French Laundry!)
In the Area
Go on a wine-tasting spree and hit some of St. Helena’s and Yountville’s most beloved wineries, like Domaine Chandon, Merryvale and V. Sattui. See the landscape from above by hot air balloon on a trip into the clouds with Napa Valley Balloons or join a guided bike ride through the vines with Napa Valley Bike Tours. Test your need for speed at Infineon Raceway, where you can be a spectator or join the action through the Jim Russell Racing Drivers School in Sonoma. Nearby Calistoga is known for its rejuvenating mud baths and geyser-fed mineral pools; book a tub and a scrub at Indian Springs Resort & Spa.
How to Get There
Really nice room, beyond the construction. No points off due to the renovations!
Beautiful woodwork, fireplaces, hot tubs facing the vineyard. Restaurant was closed on Monday night. Farmstead was a good choice in town.
Breakfast on the veranda on a cool morning was excellent, but my order was wrong, ha, and they were not busy. They offered to change it but I ate the order instead of having them throw it out. "Car to town" was really helpful and the drivers were really nice to us, so thanks again!
Room was not the number of beds I requested when booking 4 months prior. Parts of the property were not accessible, even to walk from Point A to point B because of private events. No plastic wine glasses and carafes available for pool area. Room service breakfast grossly undercooked and when asked to remedy brought very burnt bacon. So disappointed because I’ve stayed 2 previous times in years past and it was wonderful - gone downhill and not worth the money
NO bath room in the spa!!! had to walk through the the LOBBY IN OUR ROBE'S!!!!
only to find an employee brushing their teeth in the public sink outside the bath room, which had no sinks
oh well, we made the best of it....
would stay there if it was half the original price i paid$$$
DO NOT EVER get a massage there it's a ONE ROOM PRISON CELL with ZERO amenities
