Although this inn sits just off Highway 29, its patrons remain mostly above the fray, strolling 8 acres of landscaped gardens, enjoying views of the vineyards adjoining the property, partaking in spa services, and drifting to sleep in beds adorned with fancy linens and down pillows. In 2014 the New York City–based Charlie Palmer Group purchased the inn, whose rooms occupy a series of two-story, shake-shingled structures. The rooms still have a clubby feel, with dark-wood furniture and leather chairs; many rooms have brick fireplaces, and all have small refrigerators, Keurig coffee machines, Wi-Fi connections, flat-screen TVs, and DVD players. Some of the Napa Valley's choicest wineries, restaurants, and shops are steps or a short drive away. In 2015 you'll be able to dine right on-site: chef Palmer is opening a restaurant in the inn's main building.
