While scouring the internet for hours searching for the perfect Napa hotel, I came across the strikingly charming White House Inn. The accommodations are often my favorite part of a vacation, allowing me to truly feel like I have departed to a new destination. There is something extremely special and unique about The White House Inn. Maybe its the newly remodeled decor that mixes old world charm with modern elegant touches or the cozy feeling of being in a boutique hotel with only 17 rooms. It could also be the fabulous tapas style breakfast made each morning by the family who runs the hotel.
There are numerous reasons that make the White House Inn one of the best hotels in Napa to enjoy while exploring some of the most gorgeous vineyards and wineries in the country.
As you walk up to the front steps, you”ll immediately notice the elegant chandeliers which also adorn numerous rooms throughout the hotel. Gold crown molding accents the walls and modern blue carpeting with mustard yellow polka dots line the floors.
The hotel has managed to keep much of the original features of the home intact while adding new pieces that still exude the same Victorian design.
The rooms are incredibly spacious and charming. Bright colored green chairs with furry foot stools compliment the blue carpets. We stayed in one of their King Rooms which had a separate living room featuring a lovely fireplace and work desk for my laptop. My favorite touch was the geode artwork which made the room feel especially trendy and vibrant.
Outside you can lounge by the pool under a cabana while sipping a glass of Cabernet you recently selected from a nearby vineyard.
Their pool and jacuzzi are surrounded by emerald green vines and dainty white flowers.
Lush rose bushes surround the property adding to the hotels old world charm.
In the evenings, when the chilly Napa air begins to set in, you can cozy up to one of their firepits and relax after the day’s events. The hotel is also just a few short blocks walking distance to Downtown Napa.
My favorite feature of the hotel is, of course, the tapas style breakfast.
Each morning the owners family prepares a variety of healthy breakfast items ranging from poached eggs and spinach, quinoa, sauteed veggies, mini pancakes, and fresh fruit. You can expect to find new dishes everyday, further adding to the excitement. I honestly could not wait to throw on my bathrobe and run downstairs to see what goodies were waiting for me.
The owners were so delightful, making the hotel feel more like a local bed and breakfast with southern hospitality.
Since there are only 17 total rooms, there is a warm cozy atmosphere that invites conversation among guests. We would chat with neighboring tables about the day’s upcoming events and what wineries we had planned on visiting. The family next to me was planning to take the wine train. This sounds like a great activity for my next trip.
For this trip, I researched and selected a handful of the best wineries in Napa.
This was my first time visiting the Napa Valley and I really wanted it to be an amazing adventure through wine country. We road through the vineyards in an ATV Tour at Hess Collection, ate our hearts out at Piazza Del Dotto, took a sky gondola ride to Sterling Vineyards, sipped the finest champagne at Domaine Carneros, and admired the modern architecture of Opus One. Needless to say, this was the most epic wine country girls trip you could possibly imagine.
As an added bonus, if you make it back by 5pm, this Napa hotel offers a complimentary wine hour with hors d oeuvres! The White House Inn is truly one of a kind. It’s perfect for a girls trip, romantic getaway, or even a bridal party. I could total see a Napa wedding renting out the entire hotel. It is just such a special Napa hotel and I hope you all get to visit someday!
