8 Best Napa Valley Resorts for a Vino Weekend Getaway in California

From chic boutiques to hip modern hotels, experience the best of Napa Valley at these eight luxurious resorts ideal for vineyard vacations.

As the main wine-growing region in the United States, there’s a magic in seeing Napa Valley’s rolling hills of verdant vineyards for the first time. Despite many visits to the region’s towns, I’m still awestruck by their idyllic beauty. And while Napa Valley’s wine tasting options are practically endless, its charm extends far beyond its grapes. You can find chefs serving Michelin-star cuisine in hip Yountville, a relaxing mud bath and hot spring culture in quiet Calistoga, and bars and tasting rooms aplenty in vibrant downtown Napa.

Accommodations range from modern downtown boutiques to small-town, five-star hotels—all offering understated luxury and amenities fit for every wine enthusiast. Whether you seek a cozy cottage stay for a romantic getaway or sprawling new resort for family vacations, you’ll find it at these eight authentic Napa Valley accommodations.

A Stylish Roadside Motel in Calistoga

Located on the north end of Napa Valley, the small town of Calistoga is famous for its geothermal waters and mud bath spa treatments—making it a favorite of those seeking a relaxed Wine Country escape. Channeling Americana vibes and a mid century-modern aesthetic, a complete remodel transformed the town’s 1947 roadside motel into the Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa.

The lodge’s bocce ball courts, hula hoops, and cheeky signage give this pet-friendly hotel a fun, relaxing vibe that’s ideal for everyone. Bring a crew to play outdoor games, or participate in yoga, guided hikes, spa happy hours, and wine tastings.

Experience unique, indulgent spa treatments like CBD Facials and Wine Country Scrubs at the hip Moonacre Spa. There’s no dark, moody lighting here; instead, bright pink and blue indoor and outdoor spaces invite you to unwind and play. Following a treatment, relax on the spa deck and soak in the geothermal mineral pool. Then retreat into a camper van-style room with a vintage-inspired design, comfy king beds, free snacks, and fresh pour-over coffee.

From the lodge, you can take a quick drive to famed wineries like Castello di Amorosa and Sterling Vineyards, or borrow a bike and cruise to Calistoga Inn and Brewery for dinner and sample vino at in-town tasting rooms. But whatever you do, don’t miss dining at the hotel’s new Fleetwood Restaurant where craft cocktails, wood-fired pizzas, and seasonal ingredients take center stage.
