There are excellent restaurants nearby. It's the perfect place to relax.

2015 LONG TERM RATES For 6 mos. or longer the rate is $3,750, all inclusive. One month rate is $4,750, all inclusive.

The Napa Valley is pastoral and picturesque with acres of grapes and many wineries. The Valley sits between the eastern and western slopes and mountains. Casa Cabernet is located in the premier Rutherford appellation. Rutherford is located 3.miles from the charming,small town of St. Helena, 15 miles from the city of Napa, and approximately 66 miles from San Francisco. It is possible to fly into Oakland, San Francisco, Sacramento or by private plane to the Napa Airport.

The seasons bring delightful changes to the Napa Valley. In the Spring, bright yellow mustard fills the vineyards. In the Summer, the valley is a carpet of green, and at Casa Cabernet, fresh cantaloupe, tomatoes, squash, peppers, etc. are ripening along with delicious peaches and pears, and eventually apples and citrus. In the Fall, the valley turns many fall colors and the harvest of grapes begin late summer into Fall. In the Winter, the valley is a more quiet place, an unhurried time to visit. The stark brown twiggy vines in the fields are most attractive.

Long-term guests are welcome. It is an ideal place to stay while building a new home in the Napa Valley or looking for property to buy in the Napa Valley.

Long-term guests take advantage of the exceptional rate of $3,750 a month, or $125. per day, with all living expenses covered by owner.
