How to Escape San Francisco to Napa Valley

If you live in San Francisco, you are no stranger to incredible things to do and see.

California’s Wine Country is a perfect place to escape. Its combination of incredible wineries and majestic scenery will be pleasing to your both your palate and your mind’s eye. You’ll need to consider at least 3 things when you are planning your escape from San Francisco to Napa Valley: accommodations, wineries and travel routes. Here are a few suggestions for each!

Napa Valley Accommodations

Perched on a knoll surrounded by the vineyards of the Napa Valley, the Wine Country Inn & Cottages offers visitors a serene country setting moments away from internationally renowned wineries and restaurants. Starting out as Napa Valley’s very first bed and breakfast, this luxurious inn has blossomed into an award-winning boutique hotel. Here in St. Helena, Ca., guests enjoy unwinding in elegant country accommodations after a day of dining and wine tasting.

The Wine Country Inn & Cottages accommodations are both luxurious and casual, offering elegant rooms and common areas, in a laid back environment. We are very excited that the Wine Country Inn & Cottages has been awarded the title of 9th Most Romantic Hotel in the United States and 1 of the Best Small Hotels in the United States from TripAdvisor. We offer several different styles of accommodations ranging from a sunny garden cottage to a suite with a covered balcony, and every room includes a full buffet breakfast and access to the pool and hot tub with vineyard views.
