St Helena Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage - 1 Bedroom - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 1-2)

Casa Cabernet is a one bedroom cottage furnished in a country casual way with an exceptionally large living/dining room and well equipped kitchen all with a fireplace in view. All rooms open onto a patio and grape arbor with two picnic tables. Guests have the use of a beautiful pool and cutting gardens when in season. This architect designed cottage is in the heart of wine country and is surrounded by fifty plus acres of vineyards and lovely gardens designed by renowned landscape architect, Thomas Church. Everything is included-high speed wireless internet access, linens, wood for the fireplace, a gardener, a once a week maid, bottled water, and all utilities except telephone.. It is within walking distance of more than 6 wineries as well as Dean & DeLuca, a famous gourmet market. The views are spectacular with fields of grapes and gorgeous mountains as a backdrop. There are excellent restaurants nearby. It's the perfect place to relax.

2015 LONG TERM RATES (6 months or longer) are: for one person the monthly rate is $3,000, for two people, the rate is $3,500. One month rate is $4,750.

The Napa Valley is pastoral and picturesque with acres of grapes and many wineries. The Valley sits between the eastern and western slopes and mountains. Casa Cabernet is located in the premier Rutherford appellation. Rutherford is located 3.miles from the charming,small town of St. Helena, 15 miles from the city of Napa, and approximately 66 miles from San Francisco. It is possible to fly into Oakland, San Francisco, Sacramento or by private plane to the Napa Airport.

The seasons bring delightful changes to the Napa Valley. In the Spring, bright yellow mustard fills the vineyards. In the Summer, the valley is a carpet of green, and at Casa Cabernet, fresh cantaloupe, tomatoes, squash, peppers, etc. are ripening along with delicious peaches and pears, and eventually apples and citrus. In the Fall, the valley turns many fall colors and the harvest of grapes begin late summer into Fall. In the Winter, the valley is a more quiet place, an unhurried time to visit. The stark brown twiggy vines in the fields are most attractive.

Long-term guests are welcome. It is an ideal place to stay while building a new home in the Napa Valley or looking for property to buy in the Napa Valley.

Long-term guests take advantage of the exceptional rate of $3,000 for one person, $3,500 for two.

Guestbook comments from the manager
"Well your ears should be ringing practically every day, because as we are seeing people and are asked about our trip, the first place we talk about is Casa Cabernet, clearly the highlight of our trip. How could it not be, to have the privilege to spend time in Casa Cabernet, totally surrounded by vineyards, beautifully furnished and meticulously cared for grounds. It was grand. We miss it so very much, and we shall return."

A CHARMING COTTAGE IN NAPA VALLEY WINE COUNTRY

  • 5 of 5
Casa Cabernet exceeded our expectations!! My husband and I were extremely pleased with our accomodations. The cottage and courtyard is perfect for 2 people looking for a private and beautiful place to stay. We were surrounded by vineyards yet only a few minutes away from gourmet shops and restaurants in the lovely town of St. Helena. We arrived late at Casa Cabernet our first night and were delighted to be welcomed with a nice bottle of wine and english muffins with fresh fruit for breakfast. The owner also provided us with a map of biking routes for Napa valley. She is extremely gracious and hospitable. We highly recommend staying at the lovely Casa Cabernet!!

AN ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL MONTH!

  • 5 of 5
As soon as my husband and I saw Casa Cabernet on the VRBO website, we were hooked! The photos of the cottage, the grounds and the reviews only added to our excitement so we immediately booked it for a month. During the next few months our correspondence with the owner only reinforced the fact that we were in for a delightful stay. So, when we arrived at the cottage we looked at each other and said "this is to good to be true." However, it really was. (I might add that the photos do not do it justice, since you cannot feel the tranquility that the location has to offer.) All you have to do is unpack your luggage and you will immediately feel at home. Besides being very tastefully decorated (that comes from the owner's exquisite taste), the cottage includes everything you could possibly need. Like other reviewers have already said, because of its wonderful location, you can be in multiple cities within an hour or so (e.g., Yountville, Napa, Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, Calistoga, etc.). - that is, if you ever want to leave.

We have rented multiple houses/villas in the U.S. and Europe thru the VRBO website, but my husband and I agreed that this was the best experience we have ever had. We spent an absolutely wonderful month at Casa Cabernet. However, I have to say that our stay was made truly special because of the owner/host. She is the most gracious, interesting and warm person we have had the pleasure of meeting throughout our travels. And, we hope we now have a friend for life.

CASA CABERNET--THE BEST CABERNET IN NAPA VALLEY

  • 5 of 5
Given that this has the potential to get lengthy, let me summarize: you will fall in love with Casa Cabernet.
As others have previously reported, the cottage itself is perfectly located, tastefully decorated and well-appointed. It is extremely well-designed and its open floor plan, coupled with cathedral-style ceilings and expansive sliders from both the living and bedroom areas to the private patio, make for a much larger indoor/outdoor living space than one would expect. As inviting as the cottage is, I found it hard to stay inside given the beauty of the grounds and the majestic 360 degree views present on this property. While nestled amidst vineyards, the property itself is park-like—beautifully planted and meticulously landscaped—all against a beautiful mountain backdrop. There are numerous outdoor seating options, including the dining table on the patio and picnic tables and benches under beautiful grape arbors. Take it all in with a glass of wine and make sure not to miss the stars at night. Serene? Idyllic? Absolutely!
Casa Cabernet is ideally located, minutes to the main street of St. Helena, and close to a myriad of wineries, shops, and, yes, Dean and DeLuca. It is also an easy drive to Yountville, Calistoga or the town of Napa. As it relates to location, I would simply add one other “new” comment: the property is part of a truly beautiful “neighborhood,” providing an ideal setting for early morning or evening walks or bike rides. This location provides the perfect combination of being close to nature and, at the same time, fine wine and dining. I was reminded of the line from the movie, Field of Dreams, “is this heaven?”
The cottage and the property are extremely clean and well-maintained. It would be easy to attribute this to the hard work exhibited by the weekly maid and gardening services. Their efforts notwithstanding, I suspect that it is more a reflection of the owner’s pride in and, love of, her property and the attention to detail that she strives for. She is extremely focused on ensuring that your experience at Casa Cabernet is a pleasant one and has struck the perfect balance of displaying heartfelt hospitality while affording as much privacy as you would desire. This is a special property owned by a truly special individual. I am confident you will enjoy it.

Owner's Response: And thanks to the generosity of these guests, Casa Cabernet now has two new bikes for the enjoyment of the guests. What a wonderful contribution to add to the pleasures of a stay at Casa Cabernet.

CASA CABERNET...PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
Before I get started I must admit that my wife and I were torn about writing this review. We just don't want anyone else to know about this very special cottage so that we can have all to ourselves every time we visit Napa Valley. We've been traveling to the valley annually since 2000. Prior to this trip we've always stayed at one of the resorts or rented other homes in the St. Helena area. I can tell you without a doubt that this will be the only place where my wife and I will stay from now on…assuming the cottage is available (not very likely after people read the reviews on this property).

We stayed at Casa Cabernet for 10 days at the beginning of this month (we paid the one month fee) and absolutely fell in love with this cosy cottage and the idyllic location. The cottage is surrounded on every side by mature vineyards with stunning views of the surrounding mountain ranges. As others have written, the cottage is well appointed, tastefully decorated, very clean and has all the amenities you need for a relaxing and private vacation for two.
The location is perfect! My wife and I walked through the vineyards and down quiet country roads every morning on our way to Dean and DeLuca for coffee, a breakfast burrito or a one of their delicious pastries. The cottage is only a half mile or so from downtown St. Helena and is central to many of the best wineries (at least our favorites) on HWY 29. When you exit the neighborhood you are on Zinfandel Lane which takes you right to HWY 29 or you can stay on Zinfandel and cut across the valley to the less traveled Silverado Trail to enjoy an afternoon tasting at Joseph Phelps or Mumm.

Most importantly, I have to mention the owner of the property. I'm not sure I can put her name in this review so I won't. What I will tell you is that the owner is one of the sweetest and most thoughtful people my wife and I have ever met. She regularly checked in (by email) to make sure had everything we needed and always respected our privacy. I can't say we did the same as we loved going over to her house to visit. We enjoyed talking with her and sharing a glass of winewhile sitting in the backyard watching sunsets every night that would take your breath away. I know some people like to go on vacation and have total privacy but I highly recommend meeting the owner while you are there and visiting with her. You will not be disappointed. We can't wait to see her again soon.

PERFECTION IN THE NAPA VALLEY

  • 5 of 5
The owner's description, while wonderfully accurate, cannot convey the exquisite taste and serenity of this magical retreat. My wife and I were seeking a place that felt away from the world,and yet would give us access to markets and restaurants. We found it here, and would say simply, this property was PERFECTION!!!

We will be coming back if someone reading this does not move in forever.

A UNIQUE FIND IN NAPA VALLEY WINE COUNTRY

  • 5 of 5
This is a very private, attractive, and simply decorated cottage-house nestled in a Napa Valley vineyard with lovely views of low-lying coastal hills, grape vines, and a beautiful secluded garden and patio. It is thoughtfully equipped, comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed the open, quiet indoor/outdoor living space so much that we wanted to adopt this place as our own special "home-away-from-home." It is truly unique and wonderful!
