Magical guest cottage on top of Spring Mountain. This peaceful, romantic two room cottage is filled with antiques and art. Enjoy both Napa and Sonoma Valley. (15 minutes from St. Helena and 20 minutes from Santa Rosa). Watch the sunrise from bed over the Napa Valley above a sea of clouds. Enjoy a glass of wine from your private deck while watching the sunset over the lavender garden and famous mountain vineyards. Lay by the pool and relax. Take a walking tour to nearby vineyards such as Pride and Barnett. Enjoy this hideaway! *Please note that this is the guest house to a larger property. Use of the common areas such as the pool and lawn are only allowed when no other renters are in the main house.
We are vintners but spend a lot of time in Europe.
Its a gem and is a tucked away private property- perfect for a get-away to fully relax.
My wife and I had a lovely stay. I'd highly recommend this listing to anyone visiting the area.
The cottage above the clouds is a truly idyllic, peaceful, charming cottage, overlooking the valley. A gorgeous private setting, with a pool amongst the beautiful gardens including vegetables and fruit trees and not a sound to be heard! Very close to St Helena and Calistoga to enjoy wine tours & tasting, farmers markets and the petrified forest. The owners were wonderful and welcoming, adding little unique touches around the cottage such as their very own wine.
I look forward to staying there again!
Superior to the rest, you can't compare the private location of this St. Helena, forty-acre vineyard estate. Once we were there, we didn't want to leave even though, it's just a short, five mile drive to town and all the local wineries from Napa to Calistoga.
Elevated as high as the mountains and above all the clouds, each morning we shared the sunrise along with the blue birds. By nightfall, we experienced the one hundred eighty degree view of a sunset even more gorgeous than the last. As if we were in a dream, we looked on from the front row, viewing a three hundred sixty degree show of the stars taking shape in the form of the Big Dipper underneath the Milky Way. Such a romantic setting!
Color-filled by all of nature, the many Christmas like trees and warm surrounding vines, there is no place more peaceful or tranquil to the mind, body and spirit.
We decided to take advantage of the vegetable garden and picked some herbs & tomatoes for a very organic lunch. For dinner, we barbequed on our own private deck and then took a dip in the pool (what originally sold us!) while chilling our champagne on ice. Freshly made ice was plentiful from the handy poolside ice machine.
The cottage was equipped with a coffee maker, tea-pot, cook top, microwave, kitchen utensils/dishes & supplies, a small refrigerator, so you can come prepared or stock up on some goodies in town and cook or store them for your next meal. Morning and night, we took it all in while enjoying our cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate by the warmth of the pipe stove, fireplace.
By the artwork, knick-knacks and antique furniture pieces, we surely felt cozy. Plenty of clean linens, towels and blankets were provided that we felt as though we were in the comfort of our own home. A small TV was there in the cottage but, we didn't have any use for that since, the cottage has all around windows and french doors which afforded us the opportunity to be united with nature.
Upon arrival to our awaiting cottage, we found some delightful surprises; a nice touch, fresh flowers on the dining table, and two bottles of the best red & white wines in Wine Country. Who could bestow better hospitality to you than that!
Once you've been there, you’ll want to return, again and again, for all of life’s small & large celebrations.
The charming 'Cottage Above the Clouds', known locally as 'the pool house' is an outpost in Eden where the quiet will make you aware of things that get lost in the noise elsewhere. A stay in this peaceful space is certainly relaxing, and may be transforming. The pool is just steps away. Awaken to the sunrise over the Valley mist for a splash in the restorative waters of the Spring Mountain mountain spring fed pool. With a start like that, you're going to have another great day in Paradise.
As the sun climbs the Napa sky, the vineyards respond with increase and the fragrance of lavender builds around the Cottage. No aroma therapy can compare.
A word of advice: minimize your plans for local sightseeing. We found it very difficult to overcome our desire to lounge comfortably on the poolside terrace overlooking all of creation. Every day offered a new perspective on our realm. Fascination unbound!
Of course the accomodations are comprehensive and nurturing in the manner of a fine European Inn. You will enjoy total privacy on the mountaintop, and the full-service town of Saint Helena is a quick roll down the hill.
I could go on and on, but I think some surprises should be left for you to discover. Enjoy!
