A trendy, friendly gem in the heart of California's wine country
Food & wine | Natural world | Self-drive
Ideally situated in Napa’s downtown where casual wine bars and Michelin-star restaurants abound, River Terrace Inn is a wonderful choice for your base in Napa.
Guests are greeted with the lobby's vaulted ceiling, rich dark tones, cluster chandeliers and floor-to-ceiling windows – it's elegant and high-end, but hospitable staff, sofas and a sprawling bar makes it all feel laidback. It’s matched with luxurious rooms that feature king-sized beds with a view of Napa town and suites that boast jetted tubs and fireplaces overlooking pretty Oxbow Park.
Outside, sleek grey, squashy furnishings lie alongside fire pits and heaters; it makes for a wonderfully cosy place for breakfast or a nightcap, right next to Napa river and endless greenery. It's all perfectly explored with bike rentals, kayaks and gentle hikes before taking advantage of the once-weekly complimentary wine tasting from local vineyards and live music on weekends.
River Terrace Inn is just moments away from the departing station of the Napa Valley wine train, a three-hour traverse along emblematic vineyards and fields through charming Napa towns such as Oakville and Yountville. Then there's next door's Oxbow Market, where high-quality vendors offer everything from Mexican to sushi to fine sit down dining. But, stay closer to home at River Terrace Inn’s Alba restaurant to enjoy such culinary delights as pork belly crepes, crab sliders and fresh salmon alongside exquisite Napa wines. Breakfast offers the likes of homemade granola and breakfast flatbread, and there’s even the option to arrange for a deluxe boxed lunch delivery to take with you on excursions.
