CNN Travel: 7 Best Places to Stay In Napa Valley
7 best places to stay in Napa Valley
While the Valley still boasts classic resorts such as Meadowood Napa Valley, Solage Calistoga and Bardessono, new openings and renovated properties have brought other overnight destinations to the forefront. Here are our seven favorites.
Brannan Cottage Inn, Calistoga
Built in 1860 by Calistoga founder Samuel Brannan, the Italianate Victorian at Brannan Cottage Inn was one of the first town buildings to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A painstaking renovation in 2014, coupled with Victorian-style furnishings, has enabled this six-room bed-and-breakfast to retain much of that old-school feel.
Design freaks will love the Art Deco-inspired in-room wallpaper, one-of-a-kind and new but created to look old. Also be sure to check out the giant elm tree, planted in 1878, that grows through the eaves of the roof.
Guests can play the antique (circa 1880) piano at their leisure.
