AUTHENTIC VICTORIAN RETREAT - LICENSE #VR09-0045

Napa House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Welcome to Napa and to the best wine country in the world! Our conveniently located home is within walking distance of the lively restaurant and tasting room scene in downtown Napa and has easy access to Highway 29 and the hundreds of wineries of the Napa Valley.

The Fox Cottage has City of Napa permit #VR09-0045. This architectural gem in the heart of Napa's Old Town is elegantly situated among other Victorian homes, among tree shaded historic streets, and is within walking distance to everything from restaurants and shops to a grocery store and downtown wine tasting establishments. Walk to Morimoto, Celadon, Cole's Chop House, Bounty Hunter, Norman Rose Tavern, Angele, the Uptown Theater and the Napa Valley Opera House. Notable architect Luther Turton designed this group of homes.

With gleaming oak floors, fine cotton linens, pillow top beds, fluffy duvets and oriental rugs this home provides a romantic retreat. The bathroom has just been restored with 'subway' tile wainscot, porcelain tile floor and new fittings and details.

This charming two bedroom, one bathroom house accommodates 4 guests very comfortably. The back yard includes a private dining area, 'fire pit', gas grill, 75 rose bushes, 20 peonies, and a collection of fruit trees and camellias.

About Juliana

I'm an architect who specializes in historic architecture. I am also Vice Mayor of the City of Napa.

Juliana purchased this house in 1996

Why Juliana chose Napa

I bought this property in 1996 and operated it for many years as a regular rental home. In 2005 I refurbished the house and began operations as the Fox Cottage.

What makes this house unique

This is a very special group of historic homes designed by Luther Turton in 1888-1892. The neighborhood is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. These homes are unique examples of Queen Anne architecture.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay in Napa at Fox Cottage. We really enjoyed the proximity to downtown Napa. Went to great restaurants - Oenotri, Bounty Hunter (beer can chicken!), Celadon, Carpe Diem. Ca Momi at Oxbow Market, and a standout Sunday brunch at Brix!



Visited lots of great vineyards - Artesa, Grgich Hills, Sterling, Plumpjack, Honig, Kelly Fleming, Shafer, Michael Mondavi, Paradigm, Robert Sinskey, Kuleto Estates - had a very nice picnic lunch at V. Sattui. We enjoyed touring Castello di Amorosa.



We used Janette from "My Napa Valley Driver" to take us to all the wineries - she picked us up at the house and helped us plan itineraries for each day. Terrific service and well worth it after all the wine!



Fox Cottage and Napa = great vacation!!



Thanks, Juliana.

Fox Cottage Weekend Get Away

What a wonderful place to stay on our trip to Napa! Fox Cottage met our needs perfectly with plenty of entertainment room, large table, and abundant wine glasses! It was cozy and comfortable and only a short walk to downtown! We would definitely want to stay here again if we travel to Napa!

Week in Napa

Wonderful property and Juliana was very helpful and friendly. The cottage is darling and met our needs perfectly. My friend and I were visiting for the week so it was nice to have two bedrooms. We found the property clean, orderly with everything we needed to get started for the week.

Napa house is the way to go

  • 5 of 5
This was my first using VRBO and it was fantastic. The house was great and in a perfect location for us. Going with another couple it made the experience more enjoyable to sit and talk at day end over a nice bottle of wine in the family room. Beats going to you hotel room separately making a quick end to the night. I will do this again and when I go back to Napa I will stay in this house again.

Ideal Napa Cottage

  • 4 of 5
Fox Cottage was a wonderful place that provides a quaint cozy cottage in a terrific location. We enjoyed the easy walk to downtown Napa for morning walks and dinner at a variety of restaurants. The house provided all we needed to spend some of our meals at home with delicious wines we had discovered that day and fresh items from one of the markets nearby. Thank you for letting us use your home! We hope to return someday soon.
