We are a retired couple who have lived in St. Helena for over 30 years. If we are not traveling in the summer you will catch us fly fishing on Rock Creek in Montana or in the winter sitting on the beach in San Pancho, Mexico. The rest of the year we live in St. Helena and enjoy the beauty of the valley and the access to great wines. We hope you enjoy our home in St. Helena.

We love the climate and we love the access to the charming downtown area.

We spent a four-day weekend at this house last weekend with another couple. It is perfect for two couples to stay in. The house is beautifully appointed, supplied with all of the basics you would need, has a great kitchen in which we prepared our dinners each night, and is in the heart of wonderful St Helena.

My husband and I stayed at the St Helena Cottage with one other couple in early October for a long weekend getaway. We were more than impressed with the accommodations. The location is perfect and we enjoyed being able to walk to breakfast, around the neighborhood, and to the Farmer's Market on Friday. The outdoor spaces really blew us away! Beautiful furnished front porch, and huge back yard with several seating areas provided us with many opportunities to enjoy the beautiful weather outside (with wine!). The kitchen is stocked with all the essentials, and the beds were comfortable. We will definitely book this home again when we return to the area!
We loved this house; it was charming, close to town, and had the perfect front patio for relaxation. We highly recommend it and will likely rent it again when we can come back.
This home was a great place to stay for our visit to Napa with my sister and her husband. We enjoyed walking through the neighborhoods and the proximity to everything. The back yard and the front porch were great for sharing meals, visiting and tasting wine into the evening. The kitchen is furnished with everything you could ask for -- in fact, we chose to eat at home for 3 out of our 4 nights! Communication with the owner was very easy and there were numerous suggestions for restaurants, shopping and wineries. We would happily return!
This is our second time staying at this propertyand we absolutely love it. The home is very clean and the outdoor living space is phenomenal. You also cant beat the location. Very easy walk to downtown St Helena with access to great restaurants, tasting rooms and shops. We planning on staying again the next time we are in town!
The Cottage on Hudson was PERFECT! We had 2 couples and we love to cook - the kitchen, cookware, appliances and sundries were the best I'd ever seen. We didn't need to buy anything additional, that we were cooking for a meal, except coffee.
The beds are super comfy and the couch is luxuriously soft! Nice linens, welcoming feel and fantastic front porch and backyard for grilling, eating outside, and just hanging out with a glass of wine.
We walked all over the neighborhood and to dinner one night. It was really the perfect location. Thanks!
Nearby Crane Park hosts our weekly Farmer's Market on Friday mornings. We have some of the best restaurants in the world within walking distance and hundreds of wineries in the surrounding area.
