Meadowood Napa Valley

900 Meadowood La., St. Helena, California, 94574, United States

Founded in 1964 as a country club, Meadowood has evolved into a five-star resort, a gathering place for Napa's wine-making community, and a celebrated dining destination. The lodges and gray clapboard bungalow-style structures scattered across this sprawling property lend it an exclusive New England feel. Everything runs seamlessly, starting with the gatehouse staff, who alert the front desk about arrivals. Guest rooms have views over the wooded grounds and golf course from expansive windows. Wood-burning fireplaces and the supremely comfortable beds defy you to get up and pursue the golf, tennis, hiking, croquet, and other activities. Under chef Christopher Kostow, The Restaurant at Meadowood has won high praise from critics and foodies—and three Michelin stars. In 2014, the restaurant staff won the James Beard Award for Outstanding Service. A new world-class spa facility is scheduled to debut by late 2015.
