My family booked a pair of adjacent rooms for a celebration. The rooms are rather small, but comfortable and squeaky clean. The rooms have small TVs with DVD player, and a CD player. The common sitting area is welcoming with a current newspaper, games, complimentary sherry, homemade scones and chocolate. The host couple, Gillian and Nick are from England. Nick... More

All B&B's serve breakfasts, but this one serves an utterly distinctive offering each morning. The owner is English, but very astute to the subtleties to making fine food (she also knows her wines and is a fountain of information about Napa restaurants). Each breakfast exceeds your expectations and will rival any breakfast offering at the finest of hotels. Her son... More

Just four years on and technology is at a different level. We were planning to buy new ones over the winter and your comments prompted us to get on... More

We stayed here last June and had a lovely stay. We were arriving from Yosemite so we got in a bit late so Gillian wasn't there. She left a helpful note for us to show ourselves in and no one else was in that night so we happen to have the whole place to ourselves - what a treat. We... More

This is a superb little B&B. Gillian is a first rate cook - breakfast is spectacular. She is also very helpful with things to do in the area. Rooms are nice, clean, and comfy. Great location at the upper end of the valley.
