Zinfandel Inn

Your castle in the vineyards. Bon Appetit says” looks like it was airlifted from the French countryside”. Warm welcome, lavish feasts in an elegant, romantic and luxurious setting. Rooms have spectacular views and settings, some with private balconies, fireplaces, wood burning stoves. Private plush outdoors, hot tub, pool. Great location in heart of Napa Valley. Near finest shops, restaurants and Napa’s best wineries.

We had a wonderful stay here over the holiday recently. I really loved this place and thought it was one of the nicest B&Bs I had ever been to. I look forward to returning in the near future.

I traveled to Wince Country from Chicago, and the stay at the Zinfandel Inn was wonderful. The people are the nicest I have ever met. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was delicious. A wonderful place to stay, and I hope AI can make it back some day.

This warm inviting "castle" makes you feel like a king and queen! The host is friendly, jovial and helpful and the home and grounds are beautiful. He was able to set up a balloon ride (at a discount ;-) and suggested the perfect dining options during our stay. Wineries are within walking distance! Can't wait to return and feel like a week of vacation in only a weekend!

Great time at Zinfandel Inn - stay here!

My husband and I just got back from Napa last week and stayed at the Zinfandel Inn on a Thursday night. When we arrived, Jerry checked us in, showed us our very large and clean Chardonnay Room and also gave us tasting vouchers and some places to go in Napa. The house was gorgeous, the pool was even better and the grounds well kept. We asked Jerry to book us a tour for the next day - and when we returned from dinner he had a post-it on our door with the place and time for the Barrel Tasting Seminar we were to attend at Joseph Phelps Vineyards, which was an experience in itself! Jerry cooked us a delicious and impressive breakfast (yogurt parfait, hashbrowns with egg, avocado, salsa, sour cream, and sprouts on top, mmmmmm). Would go back here in a heartbeat.

Beautiful home, friendly staff

Jerry and his wife were very welcoming and friendly, from the moment we arrived late at night all way through the weekend to the time we left. They also made a DELICIOUS breakfast! Home was beautiful. We stayed in the Chardonnay room, which was quite large and very comfortable.

great find

We found the Zinfandel on a last minute trip to be fantastic. Jerry is the heart and soul of the establishment and he shares his heart and his soul with his patrons to assure their delight in all aspect of their trip to the Napa Valley. He set us up with the best of the best in everything we did. He made sure we had a great time and boy does he know the right spots! Ps.... He is a fantastic cook!
