Property description

Casa Cabernet is a very privately located cottage, on five acres of land. It is a one bedroom cottage furnished in a country casual way with an exceptionally large living/dining room and well equipped kitchen all with a fireplace in view. All rooms open onto a patio and grape arbor with two picnic tables. Guests have the exclusive use of the owner's beautiful swimming pool. This architect designed cottage is in the heart of wine country and is surrounded by fifty plus acres of vineyards and lovely gardens designed by renowned landscape architect, Thomas Church. Everything is included-high speed wireless internet access, wood for the fireplace, a gardener, a once a week maid/ linen service, bottled water, and all utilities except telephone. It is within walking distance of more than 6 wineries as well as Dean & DeLuca, a famous gourmet market. Casa Cabernet is approximately 2 miles from the town of St. Helena. The views are spectacular with fields of grapes and gorgeous mountains as a backdrop. There are excellent restaurants nearby. It's the perfect place to relax.

2016-2017 RATES The one month rate is $4 500, all inclusive. That translates to a daily rate of $150.00 per day. For stays of 6 months or longer, the rate is $3,500 per month. That daily rate is $117.00. In addition, there is a damage deposit of $1,500. Should you wish to stay a partial month, the rate is the same. All other expenses related to the rental are paid by the owner--weekly cleaning with professionally laundered linens, bottled water, wood for the fireplace, and all utilities including high speed internet.
I do not accept pets of any kind. It is a non-smoking environment.

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. The cottage is approximately 2 miles from the town of St. Helena, 2 miles from Rutherford, 18 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 vegetables are ripening, along with delicious peaches and pears, and eventually apples and. 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.
