Magnolia House is located only two blocks from Napa Valley's finest and newest restaurants such as Morimoto's and Fish Story, wine bars, live music, shopping, galleries, and the new Riverwalk Promenade. Throughout the summer, Magnolia House guests enjoy the convenience of being only 3 blocks from the new Memorial Park which hosts Napa's free Friday Concert Series, Fourth of July fireworks, and Chef's Market on Thursday nights. The corner grocer is only a block away from Magnolia House, and a short morning stroll will bring you to Sweetie Pies, a local favorite, for morning coffee, scrumptious quiche and baked goods. Then head back to the charming front porch of Magnolia House to enjoy a good book, good friends and plan your activities for your day in the wine country.

Magnolia House sleeps up to seven guests and consists of a ground floor queen bedroom suite with a spacious bathroom featuring a tub/shower combo.

Comment from recent guests:

'We enjoyed our whole experience at the Magnolia House. Your home surpassed our expectations and the pictures on line really do not do the house justice. It is such a neat house, the kitchen was absolutely fantastic, and the beds very comfortable. I was only sorry that we didn't have time to enjoy the beautiful back yard. The house was much better stocked than we had imagined, and we ended up returning a lot of items to Safeway that we found we did not need. I especially want to tell you how much I appreciated how easy you made the whole transaction. It was just terrific in every way.'

--N. Starr, Ft. Myers, FL

'My friends and I had a fantastic time and we all loved the house! I have stayed in other rentals and yours was by far the best stocked, and the kitchen was great. I am definitely going to pass the information on to others about Magnolia House.'

--C. Sharp, San Diego, CA

CHARMING NAPA GATEWAY

  • 5 of 5
I rarely write reviews unless I had an unusually good experience or a horrible story to tell, and I feel compelled to tell about the most wonderful experience at Magnolia House.

I had planned a "birthday" vacation for my two adult children...both have birthdays three days apart. It has been awhile since we had vacations together and I thought I would treat them to a California Wine Country vacation. It was truly awesome! We spent a week touring both Sonoma and Napa Valley, San Francisco, and even got some zip-lining in. In planning the vacation, I started looking at hotels and felt that something like home would be a change of pace. I couldn't have been happier with Suzy (Magnolia House) and HomeAway. One I found the place I wanted, Suzy was very prompt with arrangements and confirmations.

Upon our arrival was a very sweet note from Suzy. Everything was welcoming and comfortable. The home is everything the other reviewers say. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer than a week! We enjoyed cooking our breakfast and half our dinners in the well appointed kitchen. We used the grill twice, which was very nice...and we certainly took advantage of the spa every chance we got.

I look forward to another chance to visit the Magnolia House again in the future, and certainly would recommend it to anyone looking for a "home away" from home. Thanks, Suzy, for all the hospitality!

MAGNOLIA HOUSE- NAPA

  • 5 of 5
For our 4 night Napa vacation we searched for awhile for a house to accommodate six of us. We finally decided on the Magnolia House and we are so happy we did. Suzy was SO helpful and was very prompt in answering all my questions before we arrived.
Once we got to the house, we were so impressed with everything! The house is very pretty and has all the amenities we needed. The kitchen was stocked with every utensil and plenty of glasses. The beds were all great and very comfortable. LOTS of towels! The backyard is awesome and the hot tube was a huge reason we booked the house.
The house is even stocked with detergent, lots of toilet paper, etc.
We were able to walk to downtown and Oxbow (little bit of a walk) We never needed to take a taxi!

I would highly recommend this Magnolia House- awesome experience!

PERFECT FOR OUR NAPA WEEKEND.

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time visiting the Napa region and we couldn't have been happier with this homes location. Not to mention how quaint and comfortable it is! The garden is so fantastic, I would love to visit when the weather is warmer. For a home that has such charm and classic details, the rooms were very comfortable. Definitely gave us a home away from home. The location was so perfect for our needs! Walkable to downtown Napa, easy access to the highway and close to Sonoma. I would definitely recommend this home!

BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Magnolia house for the weekend and was very impressed with the comfortable atmosphere and welcoming feel of the house. There were 5 adults in my party and we all had a wonderful time. The house is well furnished and kept immaculately clean. I highly recommend Magnolia House to anyone interested in feeling at home while on vacation in Napa!

CHARMING AND COMFORTABLE IN A FABULOUS LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Napa for a holiday celebration and had a wonderful stay! Our party consisted of 6 adults and one child. Between my dad, who uses a walker, and my 6 yr old with lots of energy, everyone had a good time and was very comfortable. The kitchen was big enough to share for a couple of cooks and the family room/dining room had enough room for everyone to play games or watch TV without feeling crowded. It is an easy walk to downtown for coffee or food, and the neighborhood has lots of interesting architecture, if you venture out. Location is easy to find and close to freeway access. We would stay here again and highly recommend it! The owner is also nice and easy to work with. Thanks for everything, Suzy!

MAGNOLIA HOUSE MARVEL IN JANUARY

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a place for all children to come and meet us and have a family weekend for all the Birthdays. Magnolia house had everything that we needed. Having such a wonderful place so close to downtown made the trip wonderful. I really need to thank Suzy. There was a little glitch with the hot tub and she was on it within 5 minutes of an e-mail being sent to her later in the evening. She really followed up. This would be a wonderful base of operation for families with younger children, girls weekends out, or just a group who wants to get away. The weather cooperated and we were able to BBQ and hot tub all in one lovely afternoon. Thanks again. Lois from San Jose, California
