The Carneros Inn, California

Nestled among 27 acres of seemingly endless rows of grape vines, unspoiled farmland, and scenic apple orchards, The Carneros Inn's design is based on cues from the local countryside - including barns, silos and ranchers' cottages - and combined with stylish, modern interiors - to capture Napa, California's distinct charm. Gravel paths that crunch underneath your feet, private gardens where you can enjoy a glass of California's finest wines, open-air fireplaces for chilly nights, exclusive dining, outdoor showers under a blanket of stars, crisp white linens, and decadent spa treatments inspired by local ingredients ensure an experience you'll never forget.
