A perfect stay in Kenwood

5 on February 08, 2017

We visited Kenwood as part of our USA roadtrip in Oct 2015. We were looking forward to our visit in Napa and Sonoma, and luckily we got to stay at Casa Bella, which was the perfect inn. Marga the host welcomed us in the most friendly way, making sure we had everything we needed and recommending many fine places all around for a wine tasting or for a quick bite. As a matter of fact, she recommended a place nearby, Paradise Ridge, which had the best wine we have tasted throughout our Napa vacation. We spent 2 nights at the BUONA NOTTE room, which was spacious, clean, airy and bright. I was a little concerned with the traffic noise coming from the main road, but the thick windows and a nice white noise machine in the room made me forget about it (If you want to sleep with the windows open and sensitive to noise, be sure to ask Marga about a room preference). The grounds had everything we could ever ask: beautiful sitting areas, hot tub, flowers and trees all around... Breakfast was splendid and generous, we splurged on the fine delicacies that Marga made for us. Breakfast is served in one room, all the guests sitting around one large table. We loved it since it gave us a chance to meet and talk to other visitors. The location was about 20-40 min. drive anywhere we wanted, the roads were safe and we drove them with no problem day and night. I would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Napa or Sonoma to stay at The Casa Bella.

Everything was comfortable, immaculate, and beautiful, with excellent gourmet breakfast in a relaxed setting. Location is on a main road but not noisy, and convenient to wineries. Guests have opportunity to interact and exchange anecdotes about local wineries. Loved it!

Central location

We stayed here over the Labor Day holiday. We really enjoyed our time here. It's central to most of the Sonoma wineries. You can even walk to several if you choose.
