About michelle cheatham

I am from Atlanta,Ga. I lived in SF for 15 yrs before purchasing my first home in St.Helena in 20001. This is my second home that I have renovated which is my passion. I am an interior designer and owner of a catering and special event company,Invisible Chef. St.Helena is my primary residence yet I have an apt in SF.

As of April 7,2018, I have a new business idea...

DESIGN BUILD YOUR DREAM HOME...STEAL THE LOOK. Wouldn't it be cool to rent a home that you want to emualte and design/build? The idea is to preview & stay in this" model home" to gain an understanding on your ideas,objectives,and needs before you buy in Napa. I will work with you to select finishes,systems,&materials,& followed by drawings,timeline,& buget. Stay here to decide what living style you prefer although not necessary to do a design/build. Contact me directly@

michelle cheatham purchased this house in 2006

Why michelle cheatham chose Saint Helena

I chose my home in St.Helena for it's beautiful setting on a country lane overlooking the vineyards. It is ideally located 1/4 mile from the world -class Meadowood Resort but I purchased it for the views of the vineyards. The change of the seasons is evident when you look at the vines. There are truly four distinct seasons with the vines being our barometer. It is heaven!

What makes this house unique

Living here, I have the benefit of running among the vines and hiking at the nearby lake or in the vineyards. I also love getting on my road bike to cycle for miles on end on the Silverado Trail to Napa or Calistoga. I love the location that I am nearby restaurants and many world-class wineries. Another benefit is the glorious weather & sitting outside on the veranda entertaining friends sipping fabulous wines & eating succulent appetizers.

My company is available to cater dinner parties at the property.

Amazing Modern Farmhouse!

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in a lot of great places on vacation, but this one might top them all. This is better than any resort you can find period! Had a great week staying here with my wife and I can't recommend this place enough. Meadowwood resort just a few mins away, overlooks a vineyard, stunning view, plus Michelle (owner) is just amazing to work with.

Book this now, don't wait!

Beautiful Modern Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a trip to the wine country. The house was perfect for two couples as the split floorplan is awesome. The views that overlook the winery from the front of the house are amazing. The house is very secluded and private. Michelle was great to work with. We will be back in the fall and plan on renting the house again.
