Hotel Overview


In California’s Napa Valley, surrounded by vineyards.

Rooms at Carneros Inn

The cottages at Carneros Inn are private and spacious with individual patios on which you can enjoy your dinner in the evening. Make sure you ask for a cottage with a view, as the scenery is too beautiful to miss! A fireplace makes the interior cosy in the cooler months of winter and an alfresco shower makes for a wonderful summer experience (but don’t worry – there’s still an indoor shower for winter!). Suites involve conjoined cottages, with a terrace and garden linking the two, and are perfect for groups.

Food & Facilities

There are several dining options at Carneros Inn, from the Farm Restaurant to the more casual Boon Fly Cafe. The Hilltop Dining Room offers beautiful vineyard views to enjoy with brunch and you can enjoy a snack by the pool from Otto’s Snack Shack. For dinner there is the option to eat in your cottage or on your private patio, for a bit of privacy. For days when you feel like some pampering there is a fully-equipped spa and the sun loungers around the pool at Carneros Inn overlook rows of grape vines stretching out across the rolling hills, with an adults-only pool on Hilltop. There is also an upmarket store, where you can buy food and drink supplies if you fancy a picnic or don’t want to visit one of the restaurants.

Activities at Carneros Inn

Keep your mind and body happy with some yoga classes or one of the daily fitness classes. There are bicycles available at the hotel, which you can use to explore the pretty surroundings. Nearby you’ll find golf courses, restaurants, and of course, some of the world’s best vineyards.
