LICENSE VR09-0018 Permit#24212- Built in 1880, with the original carriage house on the grounds, this outrageous purple victorian 'painted lady' is in the heart of downtown historic Napa. Built by prominent founding family member Nathan Coombs, it has been eccentrically decorated by subsequent owners for over a hundred years!
Enjoy our enchanted forest from the spacious veranda which is equipped with ceiling fans and a gas stove. A Japanese garden surrounds the redwood gazebo, perfect for an afternoon wine tasting. You'll have to fight the squirrels for the walnuts, but you can make fresh orange juice from abundant year-round fruit.
Each guestroom comes with luxurious linens, towels, and robes and premium mattresses. Our largest guest bedroom with queen-sized Simmons Beautyrest bed is the Bordello Room, so-named for the antique velvet wallpaper reminiscent of the wild, wild west.
The Yellow Rose Room, with queen-size pillowtop bed is decorated with French Provincial furniture and brass headboard. A library of bestseller books awaits a lazy afternoon on the wisteria-covered porch.
The upstairs bathroom has a romantic antique, clawfoot tub and Monet-inspired mural. Downstairs consists of a newly remodeled kitchen, salon and formal dining room and bathroom with shower. English style cottage garden views from every room.
Our Purple Victorian is right across the street from historic Alexis Baking Company and Cafe. Walk to shops and fine restaurants.
Just a few doors down is the historic Uptown Theater which is being renovated by Francis Ford Coppola. A ten-minute stroll to the Opera House on Main Street makes a great walking tour of the many historic homes dating from the 1850's. License #24212
