Historic bones with modern grace on sprawling lawns beside the Napa River in wine country
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.
