About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Harvard House, a charming Napa Valley retreat is centrally located between the Napa and Sonoma Valleys less then a mile from the Carneros Region. Located in Napa with easy access to Hwy 29 and Silverado Trail you can tour all the wineries that the Napa Valley has to offer. A short 15 minute drive will have you enjoying the sights and sounds of downtown Sonoma.

This charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is located in the quiet neighborhood of Browns Valley on the west side of Napa. The gourmet kitchen and living space have a great room open feel, perfect for hanging out with friends and family. The vacation home was remodeled in 2014 and totally refurnished in late 2016. You will experience complete privacy in the lush backyard and the home is perfect for entertaining with its large state of the art kitchen and open floor plan. All three bedrooms feature comfortable queen size beds with high quality linens. The home has indoor and outdoor dining areas, living room with a 55” TV and a wood burning fireplace. The private backyard is quiet and perfect for enjoying morning coffee while watching hot air balloons fly over. After a day of wine tasting enjoy an afternoon BBQ in the backyard and vino on the patio.

Do you love the outdoors? The home is close to two scenic nature parks with hiking trails. Cyclists from California and beyond come to the Mount Veeder area for the ultimate biking experience.

Downtown Napa has many restaurants, wineries and nightlife all within 3 miles from the home. The Oxbow Public Market has many restaurants, wine tasting, and brewery experiences. Downtown Napa features restaurants of all scales and we have many recommendations. Many wineries have brought tasting bars and the wine experience back into downtown Napa. All of these local features are located within a 5 minute drive of the Harvard House.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sarah,



Thanks so much. Our stay at Harvard was very pleasant and right down the street from the wedding at the Carneros Inn. In the meantime, my husband's sister just moved 1/2 mile away, so there are going to be a lot of good times in Napa at the Harvard House!



Thanks again.

Beautiful home, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Harvard House was wonderful. We very much appreciated the open floor plan and extremely comfortable couch, and the house was tastefully decorated, very clean, and obviously well cared for. Communicating with the owner was also a breeze--she was accommodating and responsive. This was such an enjoyable stay, I would highly recommend Harvard House to other travelers to the Napa area.

Great family friendly getaway in Napa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on Harvard Lane in a quiet Napa neighborhood. Everything was clean and nice and the living-room/kitchen area was great for kids and adults alike. We would happily come back.

Just average

  • 3 of 5

This home is located centrally in a quiet neighborhood. It is average in its aesthetics. It is clean and the beds are average. The pillows are old and very flat. The 2nd bathroom is off of one of the bedrooms and is very small. You cannot run 2 hair dryers simultaneously as it blows an electric circuit. The patio furniture is pretty old and dingy. It is not a great outdoor gathering space. The grill cooks very unevenly and slowly. I was disappointed as I expected more based upon the price, photos and description. The owner is very nice and very responsive to questions. She was kind enough to give me a $100 credit for the broken oven.

Beautiful home with wonderfully tranquil backyard that allows pets, but amenities are lacking

  • 3 of 5

I'll dish out the bad first. Everything seems like it should be great, but when you get down to the little details, it was not the most wonderful experience. The place comes with (hopefully) clean linens, musty smelling towels and coffee that's about it. No hand soap, no dish soap, bath mat was already damp when we got there. Beds are quite uncomfortable and the house is very LOUD. No expecting kids to sleep and have the adults watch a movie or play a board game without the rest of the house hearing every word. Once one person is up the rest of the house has heard every step.

Now the good. The "great room" is wonderful for families as is the large backyard. Nice neighborhood and is short drives from everything. Owner was very attentive and responsive and overall this place is a quality cleaning crew away from being 4* accommodations. The reason we chose this over a 3 bedroom cottage at a resort was that it allowed pets, which was very nice and appreciated.
