The Stoddard house is as rich in history as it is in appearance. Built in 1898, the classic, white house retains it's original grandeur, with vaulted ceilings throughout, double parlor, and Red Fir floors. Enter through this spectacular home through beautiful gardens where you will always find something in bloom. Crest the stairs and take a moment to imagine a time long past. Among the homes cache of treasures is the fireplace (non-operable), rescued from a residence that was regrettably destroyed for office buildings downtown and adorned with ceramic, nude tiles from France. Bouquets of glass flowers are suspended from chandeliers, and the light that Napa Valley is famous for, streams through the grand windows.

Old world meets new in this fashionably appointed prize. After two years of renovations a local interior designer has assisted the Stoddard House in reclaiming her glory. An eclectic mix of over one hundred years of chic includes contemporary, Asian, Victorian and Art Deco influences. Settle in with a book in the library, soak up the sumptuousness in a bath, or unwind outside in the gazebo with a glass of Napa Valley bubbly. Meet in the parlor and take a seat in one of the leather club chairs or on the mohair sofa and revisit the pleasures of conversation.

Stroll down Napa's most prestigious street into the heart of the downtown area. Dine at one of a multitude of world class restaurants, visit boutique shops or sample Napa's finest at a wine bar. It's a short drive to scores of vineyards and wineries and all that the Napa Valley has to offer!

About The Owner

If only there were more moments like this!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Napa County

My Grandparent's lived next door to this house, and I admired it my whole life. When it came up for sale, I could not resist! It's the kind of home that begs to be shared.

What makes this house unique

A historical gem, this house will really give you the feel of old Napa Valley and vacation. Your proximity to town, just a short stroll, and to St. Helena Highway and all the wineries along it, is ideal. The gardens, planted by the previous owner who ran a floral shop out of the garage, are magnificent and oh, so, relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is a perfect place to relax and share time with family. Everything that we could possibly wish for is here and the access to Napa and the lovely region is perfect. We enjoyed a day on the wine train, visits to some small wineries, and side trips to Oakland and San Francisco. What a wonderful week and always nice to return to this gorgeous home.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We were in for the bottlerock concert over Memorial Day Weekend. The house was beautiful and had basically everything we needed. Close to downtown, great for the concert. We rented bikes to get there but could have easily walked. The house was charming and quiet. We would definitely recommend.

Excellent Napa Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect! There were no problems with any part of the rental process or our stay. The house is interesting, with a lot of character, a longish walk from downtown. Thank you for hosting us.

Lovely Stay in Convenient Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

A work colleague and I stayed for 7 nights, during an event we were sponsoring. The house was lovely - great historic charm and fully equipped with everything we could need. The description online was 100% accurate. We walked to the Uptown Theatre, Ca'Momi and other spots on first Street - super-convenient. We loved the gazebo in the backyard, for a much-needed glass of wine at the end of a long day.
