Property description

Located on a quiet corner of Downtown Napa is Magnolia House, your home-away-from-home in the heart of the beautiful Napa Valley. Magnolia House is an 1890 Victorian farmhouse that has been entirely restored and updated to feature today's modern conveniences.

FREE NIGHT: Stay 7 nights and pay for only 6. That’s a savings of up to $385!

Magnolia House is one of the 40 LEGALLY PERMITTED vacation rental homes in Napa. Our home holds the City of Napa Vacation Rental Permit # VR09-0015; City of Napa Business License #26780. In Napa, rent only from permitted vacation rentals to ensure your reservation will be honored and available when you arrive.

Just blocks away you'll discover world class dining (Napa's best restaurants: Morimoto's, Angele, Cole's Chop House, The Pear Southern Bistro, Celadon), shopping and nightlife in downtown Napa. The Napa Valley and all it has to offer are easily within your reach. San Francisco and the Bay Area are one hour to the south.

Throughout the summer, Magnolia House guests enjoy the convenience of being only 3 blocks from the new Memorial Park which hosts Napa's free Friday Concert Series, and Fourth of July fireworks. The corner grocer is only a block away from Magnolia House, and a short morning stroll will bring you to Sweetie Pies, a local favorite, for morning coffee, scrumptious quiche and baked goods. Then head back to the charming front porch of Magnolia House to enjoy a good book, good friends and plan your activities for your day in the wine country.

Owned and operated by a local Napa fine artist and wine label illustrator, Magnolia House was completely refurbished in 2005. Magnolia House sleeps up to seven guests and consists of a ground floor queen bedroom suite with a spacious, light~filled bathroom featuring a tub/shower combo. Also, there is a downstairs half bath and laundry for the convenience of our guests. Upstairs features two charming bedrooms (one furnished with a pillow top queen bed, the other features a pillow top full-size bed and a twin daybed) which share a hall bath with shower. High thread-count sheets, comfy latex pillows and an abundance of fluffy towels are provided, as well as bath sheets for out guests using the spa. During your stay you'll enjoy free wifi, 37' flat screen cable TV with an extensive DVD library, a comfortable living area, wood~burning fireplace, spacious indoor dining for 8, washer and dryer, a fully-equipped cherrywood kitchen featuring all stainless appliances, granite countertops, and gas range. Magnolia House offers off-street parking for up to 4 cars in its generous driveway. The backyard features lawns, deck and paved areas with tables and seating, bbq, fire pit, and a hot tub that seats 6.

Also within walking distance: Napa Opera House, day spas, antique stores, movie theatre, and bike rentals. Easy access to Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail, home of the finest wineries in the world. Drive time: 5 minutes to Carneros Region wineries (southwest Napa) and 5 minutes to Napa wineries off Silverado Trail, 20 minutes to Sonoma Square, 15 minutes to Yountville, 25 minutes to St. Helena, 40 minutes to Calistoga. For the family with fun on its mind, the local playground is 5 blocks away at historic Fuller Park and Six Flags amusement park is 20 minutes south. It's a 55 minute drive to San Francisco, 55 minutes to Oakland International Airport, and 75 minutes to San Francisco International Airport.

To enhance your wine country experience, we are happy to supply our guests with concierge links on local activities and services such as wine tours and day spas, in advance of your visit to the Napa Valley. Your hosts live in the neighborhood and we wish to make our visitors feel at home in the Wine Country. Won't you be our guests?
