About Gaye G. Cook
I am a long time resident of the Napa Valley, having moved here in 1973, when we began the process of developing five acres, some in grapes and the remainder in home, garden structures, swimming pool and guest house. Prior to that, I graduated from The University of Ca. Berkeley where I affiliated with the Kappa kappa Gamma Sorority. After graduation, I taught first grade in Berkeley for six years. My husband and I raised two sons who have families of their own, and I am a proud Mother and Grandmother. I now rent my guest house and enjoy the process. It is fun to meet new people and to provide for them so that they have a memorable time in The Napa Valley.
Why Gaye G. Cook chose Saint Helena
This property is considered to be one of the most desirable in the Napa Valley. It is a five acre property with 42 acres surrounding it. There are magnificent views of the vineyards and Mount St. John. It is within walking distance of Dean and DeLuca, a nice walk for coffee and treats, or one of their outstanding sandwiches. If you choose not to cook, you can get a gourmet dinner to take home. It is a short distance to the town of St. Helena and Rutherford, Ca.
What makes this Cottage unique

It is always such a pleasure to have you, and I hope you will return.

Truly a God Wink!
Casa Cabernet was truly a God Wink. I had prayed for a place to take a month long sabbatical from everything in my life. I wanted a place to be still and reflect. I found that in Casa Cabernet - quiet, beauty and a place full of peace. I took cooking classes, toured winery's, ate at many of the local restaurants, meet wonderful people, visited the local farmer's market once a week, read, wrote, laid out by the pool and sipped wine in the lovely courtyard. I got to watch the harvest of the grapes towards the end of my trip. The aroma of the grapes in the air was unreal. Oh, Did I mention the stars!
The property was beautiful, immaculate, well appointed. The views were breathe taking from the property's gardens and vineyards to the surrounding vineyards and mountains views. I had to pinch myself at times.
I can't say enough about it. I truly fell in love with Casa Cabernet and the owner Gaye. She was lovely, warm, kind, helpful, fun and inspiring. I made a wonderful friend. I feel blessed to have meet her.
Casa Cabernet has everything you would need for a lovely vacation. I felt at home from the moment that I got there. I did not want to leave! I will be going back as soon as I can. It holds a very special place in my heart.
Thank you Gaye!
Susan--it was such a joy to know you and a real pleasure to have you stay at Casa Cabernet.
I marveled at your ability to move around and enjoy all facets of the great Napa Valley. Yet, you easily kicked back and were able to enjoy the relaxing environment that the Casa offers.
Once again, on our second stay, the Casa met all of our expectations. The cottage is warm and comfortable, immaculately clean, offering all the comforts of home. Sit by the roaring fire on cool nights listening to your favorite music on the Sonos sound system. The grounds are carefully maintained, dotted with olive trees Surrounded by vineyards, yet minutes to several of the finest wineries and restaurants in the area. Discovered several new walking trails in St. Helena, and at neighboring Lake Hennessey, in addition to just walking in the vineyards in the neighborhoods surrounding the Casa. All of the Valley is within easy access - from Calistoga to Napa,. Within an hours drive is the ferry (a 60 minute ride) to the San Francisco Ferry Building for just a day trip or overnight if that is a desire. One can relax at the Casa by the pool with its unparralled views of the surrounding landscape, or if both a gym and outdoor lap pool is a preference, as it was for us, minutes away at the local Health Spa and Fitness Center. Gaye is caring and attentive to the needs of her guests. The Casa is a reflection of her love and pride in this very special treasure.
What a pleasure it was to have you return to Casa Cabernet, and I look forward to seeing you again in March of 2018.
The cottage & property were absolutely perfect!
Casa Cabernet is all that the description says it is. Gaye is a wonderful host and her entire property is immaculate. She is lovely and very attentive to your needs while maintaining your privacy.
The cottage was definitely my home away from home for the month and I hated to leave. My only concern is that I told so many people about my find that I fear she will be booked when I want to return.
First Class Setting
A wonderful, charming and ideal setting to explore the Napa Valley.
All the amenities you need to create a 'home from home' whilst you are away.
The owner is charming and delightful allowing use of her own Pool should you wish.
If you are looking in this area, look no further.
Casa Cabernet proved to be a most relaxing and comfortable cottage surrounded on all sides by views of vineyards. Coming from a flat, humid state, it felt surreal to be surrounded by mountains in the distance and vineyards as far as the eye could see. With a beautiful, dry climate, temperatures were so comfortable at night that we had the windows open giving us the best sleep ever.
Our host, Gaye, was most welcoming and shared many useful suggestions for restaurants, shopping, and more.
The pool was a welcome and refreshing respite to our daily outings which included day trips to Sonoma, San Francisco, Bodega Bay, nearby golf courses, and of course wineries.
The location couldn't have been more perfect - close to the main thoroughfare but protected enough by the vineyards that there was no noise.
A highlight was watching workers harvest a nearby vineyard! Also, on property we enjoyed grapes, tomatoes, cucumbers, and fresh basil.
The cottage was well equipped with a flat screen tv and dvd player, washer, dryer, and every kitchen amenity you could imagine.
Casa Cabernet became our home, and leaving was a sad day. In the future, we plan to revisit our casa and new family member, Gaye.
