Our stop in Napa Valley was quite a change of scenery. We switched from tents and couches to one of the nicest hotels in the Valley! I managed to snag us a free hotel room, courtesy of SniqueAway. We bunked at the Vintage Inn, in Yountsville. For what should have cost $450, we were treated to spa access, a bottle of wine waiting for us in our room, and a champagne brunch, plus a night on the most comfortable beds you can imagine. We also had a nice view of the Napa landscape from our balcony.
Someone called Napa, “Disneyland for Adults,” and that’s definitely true. We did a few wine tastings, but I must say, I enjoyed the vibes in Santa Rosa much better. It’s less pretentious and more affordable. I would definitely pick staying there over Napa when we return to California wine country.
We had a nice dinner out and then checked out what the spa had to offer. I wondered how Pat would handle to luxury and pampering of the spa, but I think he ended up enjoying it more than I did! It was pretty funny to hear him talk about lemongrass steam rooms and custom body butter. We enjoyed it so much we stopped in again in the morning before we hit the road to San Francisco!
The brunch in the morning was fantastic and had everything from an omelet bar to huevos rancheros.
