Stunning location, great property

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends and I rented this property for a long weekend and couldn't have been happier with it. It's an absolutely stunning location with amazing views from the pool area, the deck (including the hot tub) and bedrooms. The kitchen had great cookware for our culinary whizzes. The family that rents this home was friendly and easy to work with and very accommodating.

The location is a bit remote (about 15 minutes up a winding mountain road), so I might not recommend it for people who want to be making frequent trips out and about in the surrounding area, but the seclusion is a benefit in every other way. A special place.

A Fine Glass of Wine

  • 5 of 5
A gated, mountain top estate, surrounded by vinyards, with sweeping views of the valley below from nearly every window. The private, park-like grounds offer numerous opportunities for reflection while the pool, spa, decks & patio easily accomodate friends and family. In high end rentals sometimes the homes can be stunning yet sterile. This house is filled with a sense of wonder and wimsy that only an artist could have concieved. A good glass of wine should warm both the palate and the soul, this home is a very good glass of wine.

What you would own if you could !

  • 5 of 5
After renting homes up and down Napa Valley and trying each side of the Silverado Trail, my wife and I were fortunate enough to find this property beginning in 2008 and it is as good as it gets .There is a warmness and sense of style here which reflects both the personality of its owners and how the property was used to raise a beautiful family. Residence is large enough to sleep eight comfortably but also intimate enough to be perfect for one couple to enjoy . Other reviewers have already touched on many of the property's amenities. Other attractive features I would add include the mile out to the primary road,providing plenty of room for energetic walks with your well-behaved dogs and watching them flush quail out of the brush. One will also never tire from reading by the pool, drinking wine from the more than four award-winning wineries within walking distance and gazing out over one of the finest views of Napa Valley(star gazing at night is incredible!) . We have entertained numerous friends at the house who live year-round in the area and they all comment on how special this place is . A visit here is worth every penny.

European Experience in Terra Firma

  • 5 of 5
The only reason we are not looking forward to our trip to the Dordogne next summer is that we will miss another summer at the Estate Above the Clouds. We have been coming to Spring Mountain (St. Helena) for the past six years, and this has been one of the most memorable trips we have had. The house is well-maintained, clean and rationally organized. Each bedroom has a unique aesthetic. The kitchen is designed for dedicated cooks. All of the appliances are top quality. The property is secluded, yet within easy walking distance to many prestigious wineries and an easy drive into town. (The wine produced on the property's vineyards is a rival to its neighbors.) We highly recommend this home to you, particularly if you appreciate an environ that has been developed over many years by an intelligent, unique, orderly, artistic, charming, European family.

far above the ordinary

  • 5 of 5
all of us totally enjoyed our stay--it was great that each bedroom had its own bath, the large dining table overlooking the valley was a fantastic gathering point, and there was so much art to enjoy that we felt like we were living in a museum. yet, the owners were warm and helpful at every point. we hope to return again and again.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from my second extended stay 'above the clouds'. The estate is like no other. High above the Napa Valley (elevation +2000 feet), the house sits as if it is part of the mountain, almost invisible, blending in naturally with the environment. You will discover this fact when you attempt to capture the house in a photograph. Regardless of the season or weather conditions, the views from almost every room are breathtaking (especially sunrise..each one is unique!). Nature is in abundance. During my most recent visit, a great-horned owl hooted a lullaby, most evenings and numerous song birds and hummingbirds frequented during the day. Rare mountain orchids and wild iris were in bloom. Frogs in the nearby pond chirped during the early evening, and later as the mountain became shrouded in silence and the blackest of night, the sky filled with stars and planets, too numerous to easily identify. The air is clean, and breathing it in is like drinking fresh spring water (which the house offers as its primary indoor plumbing water source). Out the front door and through the main gate, there are plenty of narrow and private roads to explore with several exceptional wineries within walking distance, where you may schedule appointments for wine tastings.The home itself is extremely private, magical, and decorated with European flair and whimsical artistry. It is a warm home well-lived in and enjoyed, not cold, stuffy or formal. If the gourmet kitchen and valley view don't entice you to 'eat in', and you decide to venture down the mountain (each trip seems to become easier and faster, as you become familiar with the mountain road), the Valley offers fine dining as well as some casual and inexpensive eateries, all with excellent menu choices. Wineries are numerous and each offers a special and personalized tasting experience. St. Helena is a great little town to explore. Don't overlook Woodhouse Chocolates for one-of-a-kind hand-crafted confections or Model Bakery, for their array of breakfast pastries, breads and granola. Whether dining al fresco by the pool in summer or sipping a robust cab in front of the cozy fire in winter, the Estate Above the Clouds is a retreat from the frenetic lives most of us lead. It is a place to remember what we may have forgotten; a place to unplug and relax, a place to reboot the soul.
