About

Want to know the real secret of the Napa Valley? All you need to do is slow down, relax, take some deep breaths, and let the magic of the wine country just seep into your bones. That's easy to say. But it can be next to impossible in this day and age of rapid-fire sound bites, hyper-fast internet and fast food. That's why we're here: To give you a chance to disconnect, and relax. We’re locals, and love to share our secret places-- favorite spots to enjoy a glass of wine, a picnic lunch, or a very special meal. How about a hike through the vineyards, enjoying the great weather? Or take an old-fashioned train ride, enjoying a gourmet meal as you glide past the miles and miles of grape vines... Early riser? How about an early morning balloon ride, floating effortlessly over the vineyards. Sound like fun? At Merlot House, we're all about simple pleasures. We have great featherbeds, individual climate controls, and great rooms for 2 couples or families with kids. For just 1 couple, check out our house next door, Cabernet House, an Old World Inn, or our sister property across the street: Hotel Napa Valley. If you love being around kids but aren't traveling with them, this is a good spot to stay. While the house is often full of just adults, this is the building where most traveling families stay when they come to visit.

Walk in the Clouds

This spacious suite is the entire top floor of Merlot House. Two bedrooms, both with king sized featherbeds. Please note that one bedroom must walk THROUGH the other bedroom to enter and leave! Access to this suite is up a VERY steep staircase-- 30 steps! There is NO ELEVATOR, so you really need to love walking up and down stairs! We strongly recommend packing smaller pieces of luggage, as you will be carrying them up and down all of these steps. This suite as one private bathroom with hotel-style tub/shower. There is sitting/reading area in the first bedroom. Two 50" HDTVs w/DVD (one in each bedroom). Includes our homemade 2 course breakfast, chocolate chip cookies on check in (tiny, but sooo yummy!), our afternoon wine reception in the wine cellar across the street (at Hotel Napa Valley, our sister property), and evening handmade chocolate nibbles, 2 tiny bites of chocolate perfection when you return home each night (on the sideboard in Cabernet House, next door).

Harvest Suite

Our largest suite. Almost 850 square feet of beautifully restored space (house built c.1888, completely restored in 2010 and updated in 2015). Two bedrooms with king featherbeds, with a sitting room between (see photo). One full bathroom with hotel-style tub/shower (shallow tub) off one room, and 1 half-bath (toilet/sink) off the other bedroom. Fireplace is decorative (not functional). Electric candles are set to provide a wonderful ambiance in the evenings as you sit in the comfortable leather chairs and upholstered loveseat. Part of this suite (including one bedroom) runs along the entire front of the house, and faces Jefferson Ave. There is some street noise, so may not be suitable for light sleepers or those sensitive to noise. If you crave a quieter space, please consider our Private Cottage (at our sister property, Cabernet House, just 20 ft away). Or look at staying in 2 Acqua rooms at Hotel Napa Valley, across the street (our other sister property).

Barrel Room 1

A bargain in a town of $500/night rooms! Two king featherbeds with one Jack-and-Jill bathroom (in between) shared by both rooms. Private entrances to both rooms. Located on our bottom floor, this room stays nice in cool in the summertime due to its cellar-like location (half above ground, half below ground). Large windows in each guest room look out on private latticework. Each room has its own private entrance (off the lower hallway). Both rooms are quite small, and have no real sitting area (just a bed). Two 50" HDTVs w/DVDs, one in each bedroom. If you would rather not stay in a basement room, please consider choosing 2 rooms at our Cabernet House (next door) or Hotel Napa Valley (across the street). The Hotel Napa Valley is where we have our evening wine reception each day (from 5:30-6:30 pm), and is one block closer to downtown Napa's restaurants and wine tasting rooms.
