Circa 1880. This country inn is secluded on two acres among the finest wineries in the Napa Valley. There are two buildings, a 1920s home and a winery. The winery features original stone walls and is now a luxurious guest suite. Rooms boast fine linens, antiques, a private deck or a view of the gardens and vineyards. Wine and cheese are served fireside each evening in the parlor or on the Roman-pillared patio. A gourmet champagne breakfast is the subject of rave reviews by guests and may include eggs Benedict or Belgian waffles.Publicity and Awards: Living in Color article If you’re visiting Napa Valley, whether it’s your first time or an annual trip to the area, staying at a top notch Bed & Breakfast is a must. I had the pleasuring of being hosted at one such establishment, Shady Oaks Country Inn, during my stay. Situated right in the heart of Napa Valley, Shady Oaks is in a centralized location perfect for an entire Napa stay {for a few days or a whole week}: just a few minutes from St. Helena and surrounded by wineries and wonderful restaurants. This B&B has 5 bedrooms and is fully equipped with HD Tv's and wifi for guests to enjoy {not like you’ll be needing either of those amenities in Napa, just relax!}. Upon my arrival in the evening, I was greeted by the owner himself along with a friendly staff member. Wine and cheese is served every night, allowing guests to not only meet one another but also interact with 28 year Napa Valley natives and inn owners John and Lisa Runnells. They’re so welcoming and are a great resource for suggesting hidden local eats and recommended experiences! I peaked in each room to get a feel for the entire house which is quaintly decorated making guests feel right at home. The following morning I rose out of a plush bed in the County Blue Room to the knock of a woman asking if I would like to start breakfast with a mimosa or orange juice – now that’s the right way to kick-start my morning. Our breakfast spread was absolutely superb with fresh grapefruit, homemade croissants, and eggs Benedict – read more about my dining experience in Guide to Napa Valley.Location: City/Urban, Country and The heart of the Napa Valley Wine Country.
