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.
