The Napa Valley is pastoral and picturesque with acres of grapes and many wineries. The Valley sits between the eastern and western slopes and mountains. Casa Cabernet is located in the premier Rutherford appellation. The cottage is approximately 2 miles from the town of St. Helena, 2 miles from Rutherford, 18 miles from the city of Napa, and approximately 66 miles from San Francisco. It is possible to fly into Oakland, San Francisco, Sacramento or by private plane to the Napa Airport.
The seasons bring delightful changes to the Napa Valley. In the Spring, bright yellow mustard fills the vineyards. In the Summer, the valley is a carpet of green, and at Casa Cabernet, fresh vegetables are ripening, along with delicious peaches and pears, and eventually apples and. In the Fall, the valley turns many fall colors and the harvest of grapes begin late summer into Fall. In the Winter, the valley is a more quiet place, an unhurried time to visit. The stark brown twiggy vines in the fields are most attractive.
Long-term guests are welcome. It is an ideal place to stay while building a new home in the Napa Valley or looking for property to buy in the Napa Valley.
This property is considered to be one of the most desirable in the Napa Valley. It is a five acre property with 42 acres surrounding it. There are magnificent views of the vineyards and Mount St. John.

This property, Casa Cabernet, is a small cottage for one or two people. When available a larger 3 bedroom, 2 bath home can be rented. Casa Cabernet Grande is truly stunning. It is only available when the smaller Casa is not rented.
"Well your ears should be ringing practically every day, because as we are seeing people and are asked about our trip, the first place we talk about is Casa Cabernet, clearly the highlight of our trip. How could it not be, to have the privilege to spend time in Casa Cabernet, totally surrounded by vineyards, beautifully furnished and meticulously cared for grounds. It was grand. We miss it so very much, and we shall return."
Exceeded all the expectations we had for our stay. Idyllic, convenient location; idyllic, unmatched surroundings; idyllic, unparalleled cottage. Having spent the month of March as the Spring unfolded in front of us, around us on the property and in the surrounding neighborhood and the Valley, we can wholeheartedly endorse and confirm the words written by the reviewer who stayed at the Casa in April of 2014.
Minutes to an inviting Health Club with a heated lap pool, spa and gym; vineyards and neighborhood at your doorstep for walking and wandering; fresh fruits and vegetables , and prepared foods at the local independent market, and at Dean and DeLuca, for those nights you do not want to eat out but do not want to prepare the meal (so hard not to with all the many excellent and diverse choices just minutes away in St.Helena or only several miles away in the surrounding towns); even a weekend farmers market with locally raised meat. Convenient to whatever you would want to do and to explore in the Valley.
This IS truly a very special property, and the property IS truly a reflection of the owner's pride in and love of the property. Having seen other properties during our stay, this IS truly" a unique find".
Casa Cabernet is all that the description says it is. Gaye is a wonderful host and her entire property is immaculate. She is lovely and very attentive to your needs while maintaining your privacy.
The cottage was definitely my home away from home for the month and I hated to leave. My only concern is that I told so many people about my find that I fear she will be booked when I want to return.
A wonderful, charming and ideal setting to explore the Napa Valley.
All the amenities you need to create a 'home from home' whilst you are away.
The owner is charming and delightful allowing use of her own Pool should you wish.
If you are looking in this area, look no further.
Casa Cabernet proved to be a most relaxing and comfortable cottage surrounded on all sides by views of vineyards. Coming from a flat, humid state, it felt surreal to be surrounded by mountains in the distance and vineyards as far as the eye could see. With a beautiful, dry climate, temperatures were so comfortable at night that we had the windows open giving us the best sleep ever.
Our host, Gaye, was most welcoming and shared many useful suggestions for restaurants, shopping, and more.
The pool was a welcome and refreshing respite to our daily outings which included day trips to Sonoma, San Francisco, Bodega Bay, nearby golf courses, and of course wineries.
The location couldn't have been more perfect - close to the main thoroughfare but protected enough by the vineyards that there was no noise.
A highlight was watching workers harvest a nearby vineyard! Also, on property we enjoyed grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers, and fresh basil.
The cottage was well equipped with a flat screen tv and dvd player, washer, dryer, and every kitchen amenity you could imagine.
Casa Cabernet became our home, and leaving was a sad day. In the future, we plan to revisit our casa and new family member, Gaye.
We had a wonderful time at Casa Cabernet. Kitchen is well equipped and garden is magical. Enjoyed picking fresh herbs and using them in our cooking. Very clean and pleasant all around.
We are returning guests to Casa Cabernet. We have lost our heart to Casa Cabernet. Totally surrounded by vineyards, meticulously landscaped gardens, early morning sunrises in the vineyards are not to be missed, magnificent mountain views, tranquil setting and oh, the carefully decorated and California feel to Casa Cabernet. The architectural design is so carefully crafted that each window presents an artist's view of this beautiful property. The close proximity to charming downtown St. Helena and the lovely towns of Napa Valley is perfect and close enough to San Francisco for weekly trips to add to our complete enjoyment of Casa Cabernet. It is a privilege to stay here and you will love all the amenities that are offered as part of the Casa Cabernet Lifestyle, Just one caveat, please don't stay here when we wish to return.
