About The Owner
It was a misty February when our family moved to the Napa Valley in 1982. Transplants to Southern California from New Jersey, we longed to have a small rural community to raise our children. What a paradise we found in Napa! Incredible generosity and charity is a signature of wine country, complimenting the breathtaking beauty of the distinct landscape. Making new friends through volunteer work, enjoying the natural surroundings, and making the most of proximity to cultural activities fueled our desire to invite others to our 'home'.

Why The Owner chose Napa
The location of The Highland House is one which appealed to the prospect of giving our guests the convenience of being close to all the Napa downtown riverfront revival and activities generated by the Oxbow District. In addition, being on the Silverado Trail makes our location ideal for guests who want to take in some of the boutique wineries accessible within minutes and the luxury of a leisurely drive to some of the up-valley locations that have world reknown. The Highland House anchors a corner of a quiet neighborhood to the thorough-fare of tourism.
What makes this house unique
Not only is there the wonderful opportunity to enjoy fine wines and dining in Napa, but the arts, antiquing, and outdoor options are abundant. Hiking, cycling or rollerblading along the Napa River Trail is great fun. Hiking Skyline, Alston, Westwood Hills, or Robert Lewis Stevenson Park is a great way to start(or spend) a day. Making a trip to Napa exclusively to participate in a Marathon, a winery's fundraising event, other charitable events or planning to attend a performance at the Opera House, the Lincoln Theater in Yountville, or a small venue is always a memorable occasion.Historical tours, Castello d'Amoroso, Napa Valley Museum, Sharpsteen Museum, the Bale Mill, and outlet shopping also have their allure.
