Overview

Napa House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

City of Napa Business License #27743

City of Napa Vacation Rental Permit #09-0048

The Stoddard house is as rich in history as it is in appearance. Built in 1898, the classic, white house retains it's original grandeur, with vaulted ceilings throughout, double parlor, and Red Fir floors. Enter through this spectacular home through beautiful gardens where you will always find something in bloom. Crest the stairs and take a moment to imagine a time long past. Among the homes cache of treasures is the fireplace (non-operable), rescued from a residence that was regrettably destroyed for office buildings downtown and adorned with ceramic, nude tiles from France. Bouquets of glass flowers are suspended from chandeliers, and the light that Napa Valley is famous for, streams through the grand windows.

Old world meets new in this fashionably appointed prize. After two years of renovations a local interior designer has assisted the Stoddard House in reclaiming her glory. An eclectic mix of over one hundred years of chic includes contemporary, Asian, Victorian and Art Deco influences. Settle in with a book in the library, soak up the sumptuousness in a bath, or unwind outside in the gazebo with a glass of Napa Valley bubbly. Meet in the parlor and take a seat in one of the leather club chairs or on the mohair sofa and revisit the pleasures of conversation.

Stroll down Napa's most prestigious street into the heart of the downtown area. Dine at one of a multitude of world class restaurants, visit boutique shops or sample Napa's finest at a wine bar. It's a short drive to scores of vineyards and wineries and all that the Napa Valley has to offer!

About The Owner

If only there were more moments like this!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Napa Valley

My Grandparent's lived next door to this house, and I admired it my whole life. When it came up for sale, I could not resist! It's the kind of home that begs to be shared.

What makes this house unique

A historical gem, this house will really give you the feel of old Napa Valley and vacation. Your proximity to town, just a short stroll, and to St. Helena Highway and all the wineries along it, is ideal. The gardens, planted by the previous owner who ran a floral shop out of the garage, are magnificent and oh, so, relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is a perfect place to relax and share time with family. Everything that we could possibly wish for is here and the access to Napa and the lovely region is perfect. We enjoyed a day on the wine train, visits to some small wineries, and side trips to Oakland and San Francisco. What a wonderful week and always nice to return to this gorgeous home.

Beautiful home and property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Stoddard House for a long weekend girl's trip. The check in process was incredibly easy and the owner was quick to respond to questions. The house itself was amazing; spacious rooms, a full kitchen, and absolutely charming. The grounds were in full bloom with multiple sitting areas to relax with a glass of wine. The location is perfect, you can walk or take a short drive to everything. All around a great stay. We will be back!

Wow! What an impression when you first drive up! A beautifully maintained historic home with a lovely yard. You can feel the history when you walk in. It initially has that "older house" smell, but it's not even noticed once you're inside. We loved the layout with a center hallway and rooms on both sides. The beds and pillows were very comfy. There is a smaller, older bathroom, but nice shower head and a linen closet for 4 women to stash all our "bathroom stuff"! The kitchen seemed very functional. We didn't eat at the house except for breakfast, so all we needed was a coffee pot and a refrigerator. The breakfast nook was perfect for mornings - coffee, light breakfast, visiting and planning our days. We didn't spend much time outside, but did enjoy two lemons from a tree in the yard. At night we gathered in the lovely sitting room to discuss the days and ponder what to do the next day. Easily within walking distance to great food and Starbucks! Highly recommend and would return with friends or family anytime!

Stoddard House

  • 5 of 5

Charming get-away for our stay in Napa. Within walking distance to restaurants and wine tasting, exactly what we had hoped for. Though the pictures On line are nice, they are not as lovely as the home is in person. First street is busy during the day but we heard nothing at night and the bed made sleeping even easier. In addition, the landscaping is beautiful!

cute place in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed here over Thanksgiving holiday. Everything went smoothly. Spacious and well appointed. Close to downtown Napan and the Outlet Shopping Center. Only complaint is the linens and towels are worn out and should be replaced.

Lovely home in Napa - but needs a bit of TLC

  • 4 of 5

Had a nice stay at the Stoddard house last week, and really appreciated the ability to walk around Napa without getting in a car. The home is beautiful (kitchen is a bit small and outdated so consider this if you plan to do some cooking), but the outdoor areas (especially the gardens) need some TLC. Unfortunately they weren't in good enough shape to enjoy the back patio or front porch despite the perfect weather, but hopefully they will be taken care of soon.
