Overview

Napa Valley Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage - 1 Bedroom - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 1-2)

Casa Cabernet is a very privately located cottage, on five acres of land. It is a one bedroom cottage furnished in a country casual way with an exceptionally large living/dining room and well equipped kitchen all with a fireplace in view. All rooms open onto a patio and grape arbor with two picnic tables. Guests have the exclusive use of the owner's beautiful swimming pool. This architect designed cottage is in the heart of wine country and is surrounded by fifty plus acres of vineyards and lovely gardens designed by renowned landscape architect, Thomas Church. Everything is included-high speed wireless internet access, wood for the fireplace, a gardener, a once a week maid/ linen service, bottled water, and all utilities except telephone. It is within walking distance of more than 6 wineries as well as Dean & DeLuca, a famous gourmet market. Casa Cabernet is approximately 2 miles from the town of St. Helena. The views are spectacular with fields of grapes and gorgeous mountains as a backdrop. There are excellent restaurants nearby. It's the perfect place to relax.

2016-2017 RATES The one month rate is $4 500, all inclusive. That translates to a daily rate of $150.00 per day. For stays of 6 months or longer, the rate is $3,500 per month. That daily rate is $117.00. In addition, there is a damage deposit of $1,500. Should you wish to stay a partial month, the rate is the same. All other expenses related to the rental are paid by the owner--weekly cleaning with professionally laundered linens, bottled water, wood for the fireplace, and all utilities including high speed internet.

I do not accept pets of any kind. It is a non-smoking environment.

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.

Why Gaye G. Cook chose 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.

It is within walking distance of Dean and DeLuca, a nice walk for coffee and treats, or one of their outstanding sandwiches. If you choose not to cook, you can get a gourmet dinner to take home.

It is a short distance to the town of St. Helena and Rutherford, Ca.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"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".

Stunning, Serene, Idyllic --- CASA CABERNET

  • 5 of 5

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.

Special Find in St. Helena

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Casa Cabernet in December 2015. Let me begin by mentioning Gaye, the hostess, who could not be more lovely and accommodating. The location is perfect, close to wonderful wineries, restaurants and the town of St. Helena. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful vineyards as well as an amazing garden and swimming pool. The cottage itself is immaculate and charming containing all amenities to make our stay comfortable. The pictures cannot adequately represent what a lovely place Casa Cabernet is. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely be returning.

Beautiful Napa Valley Estate

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Cabernet in January of 2016. It is a wonderful

cottage, taking advantage of the all the gorgeous Napa Valley views.

It really is a bit of heaven, so spacious and beautifully furnished. This

has to be one of the most beautiful properties in Napa Valley. It is

a real delight just to stroll in the gardens.

We loved being away from the congestion of the town, but were close

enough to enjoy the town when we wished. Casa Cabernet is located

near many wineries and beautiful vineyards, and we could walk to

Dean and DeLucca through the vineyards for gourmet treats.

It was very much like staying in a top notch hotel, with maid service

weekly. The cottage was cleaned and supplied with fresh linens. Our

bed was made up weekly, and all included in the price.

It was heaven on earth!

Lovely and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Casa Cabernet is tucked away in a very private spot surrounded by vineyards. The cottage is a good size and very comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and laundry room. The pool is at the back of the owners house and she encouraged us to use it whenever we wanted. Her gardens are beautiful and the view from the pool is stunning. We had a wonderfully relaxing month and would certainly return.

Owner's Response: Another summer is fast approaching, and I look forward to having my guests use the swimming pool. It is a beautiful spot in which to relax and enjoy the pool. The pool is strictly for my guests and not used by the owner. Many have expressed their enjoyment of having used the pool and surrounding areas. It gives me great pleasure to give my guests sole use of the pool.

Peaceful, comfortable, beautiful…

  • 5 of 5

A perfect retreat within minutes of Napa’s best wineries and restaurants.

Casa Cabernet offers an ideal home away from home for those who wish to visit Napa Valley for a few weeks, or a few months. The owner and host of this impeccably appointed cottage takes great care to provide all of the amenities needed to settle into an easy routine. The grounds are well groomed, the kitchen ready for preparing an entire meal – or just heating up last nights leftovers from Press, it’s a short drive to St Helena’s stores and restaurants, the surrounding vineyards taken care of, and magnificent views…. certainly there is not a better view across the valley and up the mountains to the sky than from patios of this cottage.

I highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a private getaway in Napa Valley…. Just not for the dates we plan to return!
