Why Marcie chose Napa Valley

This property appealed to us with the lakes and delightful birds and wildlife, as well as several vistas of the Cabernet vineyards on this large 22 acre property.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

You will find this a peaceful retreat away from it all. Some of the residents include the egret, blue heron, geese, turkeys, quail, muskrat, an otter, and various breeds of ducks, depending on the season.

There are bass in the lakes as well, so some fishing catch and release is allowed.

Enjoy taking time to visit wineries, a few of the closest being in the Napa area, Yountville and Oakville. Ask us for suggestions to local wineries and restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the owner

First of all, thank you very much for the bottle of Dos Lagos. We took it with us to dinner one night and everyone in our group rated it at the top of the wines we tasted while in Napa (and we tasted a lot of wine!).

Our stay at your home was delightful, and it accommodated our needs perfectly. Although we did not make use of the outdoor grills, and barely used the kitchen (we dined out for all meals except a light breakfast each morning), we made full use of all the other amenities. We swam, we played bocce ball, we went on hikes, and we soaked up the sun on your deck. Everything worked that was supposed to work and the atmosphere at your home is warm and welcoming.

Thank you for helping to make our Napa vacation a fantastic, memorable experience.

Getaway on Atlas Peak

  • 5 of 5

Marcie and Tom,

I want to express my sincere thanks for welcoming us all into your beautiful home. All 8 of us remarked daily how lucky we were to have found your home for our wine country getaway. The bedrooms accommodated us all beautifully. The kitchen provided us all the necessities to prepare gourmet meals for all 8 of us, and the pool provided us with a refreshing recharge in the middle of the day after the beautiful Napa weather allowed us a gorgeous day of touring! Hiking to the top of Atlas Peak Road gave us a great wake-up to our days, and the peaceful seclusion of your vineyards provided us all the rest and relaxation we sought. The ping pong table offered us an outlet for our competitive sides, as did the bocce court!

Our dinner at Bistro Don Giovanni was a special event to cap off our time in Napa. The food was well-prepared, the wine list was well thought out, the desserts were sublime and the ambience was energetic. If there weren't so many great choices in the Valley, I'd say we would surely return, but knowing myself, I'd probably want to partake of another of your recommendations (say, il Posto?) and the Valley's many outstanding offerings.

As for our stay in your home, I'd return there in a heartbeat! Thanks again. Feel welcomed if you are ever in Sheboygan!

“The “real” way to enjoy the Napa and Sonoma valleys and their appellations

  • 5 of 5

Dos Lagos Vineyard and home is the best stay to truly understand the Wine Country story!

The ride on Atlas Peak Road ( from Silverado CC) is relaxing, eventful and enjoyable. It’s a plus!

The home was in most satisfactory condition:

• Beds were well made, totally comfortable,

• Bathrooms, clean, neat + soap, tp, etc all convenient and sufficient

• Kitchen: Milk, butter, water, olive oil, coffee were all pluses.

• Pool & outside areas: Clean, neat, and superb morning swim

• Vineyards: A joy to walk through. Wild blackberries were “stolen” and added to morning cereal. Yummy!

• Golf: Silverado: Always enjoyable. The Napa Public Kennedy Course (just shy of town) at $45 is a winner for it is a challenging course, adequately maintained golf course set up among lakes and streams in lower Napa.

• Food: We took advantage of Silverado’s Brut & Bird Thursday night special for two @ $45: It was superb. Marvelous citrus salad, succulent broasted chicken, freshly mashed potatoes and gravy, coleslaw & kale veggie plus a split of Domaine Chandon each.

o Genova Delicatessen: So good to find still operating! Sandwiches & salads are superbly prepared. Same old style people behind the counter as 30 years ago in Oakland & SF

o Ristorante Allegria: Excellent pappardelle con fungi! My linguini con vongole e marinara was quite good. Would go again.

o Bodega Bay Oysters: On Valley Ford Rd, was enjoyable. Good selection & so fresh. We picnicked under the trees on their tree filled grounds.

o Occidental’s Neri Restaurant is still going strong: Home baked pastries, bread galore and their ravioli’s have always been so good with chard, meats and a dough that floats to the heavens.

o Tasca Tasca: Sonoma’s Portuguese tapa style bar restaurant was enjoyable with a good selection of old world wine and beer plus Azorean specialties. Manuel Azevedo (La Sallette) owns this new restaurant also.

o Pat’s Runway: It’s not Jonesy's menu, but they still do have Jonesy's potatoes.

Wineries:

• Aside from the delicious Dos Lagos Cab (a bottle provided), Luna’s was enjoyable with a Sunday guitar jazz player.

• Chimney Rock was over the top with Tom Price being our server and guide into the vineyard and grounds.

• Hess & art exhibits: Interesting. Passed on Stag's Leap @ $65 pp tasting!

Owner's Response: Harry, We are so glad you loved the home, property and vineyards. Blackberries are meant to be "stolen." Thank you also for sharing your experiences around Napa and your favorite spots and experiences! We look forward to having you as our guests again.

No better way to enjoy the real Napa!

  • 5 of 5

The property was just so beautiful-with views of two lakes and easy access to all of the vineyards for walking.

We fished at the second lake, and had a glass of the owners amazing wine while watching turtles swim about. The pool at the house was great, and lots of space to sit with umbrellas and comfortable seating.

The owner was very responsive both by email and by phone, and offered us help and information prior to our trip.

The kitchen has everything you can want, so a chef can easily cook in the kitchen or with the outdoor gas barbecue.

We will definitely come back!

Such a Beautiful and Peaceful Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

I know I speak for our entire group when I say that this property is truly one of the most beautiful

properties we have stayed at. The large home is very spacious and comfortable. The beds are super comfy

and the linens are great quality. Sitting on the patio by the pool with a glass of the owners special and amazing Cabernet was so relaxing. We loved taking walks in the vineyards by the lakes, and even had a picnic.

We did barbecues often, while sitting at the upper deck, and gazing out at the lovely lake and mountain views.

We spent time in Napa valley at various wineries, and dined out at some of the great restaurants Napa has to offer.

Fabulous Country Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Napa was made even better by having this oasis to come home to each evening. In fact, the property is so beautiful and relaxing we did not even want to venture out to see the fabulous other Napa sites on our list. The kitchen is a chef's dream, fully stocked with a great 6 burner gas range, convection oven, and stainless appliances throughout. A brand new Weber grill was used extensively!! The Lakes are teeming with Bass, and the owners provided fishing gear, although we did augment it with a trip to the store to replenish the lures we lost! We took daily walks up and down the hill and saw tons of wildlife (deer, turkey, geese, ducks, etc.). An added bonus was the presence of a ping pong table in the huge family room - needless to say hours were spent doing heated ping-pong battles amongst our group. The Wine was simply outstanding, the best we had on our trip to the many wineries in Napa. Maybe it was better since we could commune with the vines that produced the fruit? Probably the world class winemaker did not hurt. This is a truly one of a kind immersion into what makes Napa great - don't miss the chance to stay here! We will be back!
