The Inn on Randolph: Napa Valley
After wine, Napa might immediately bring to mind a quaint bed and breakfast with great service and delicious cuisine. That’s exactly what we found at The Inn on Randolph, one of Napa’s top rated boutique accommodations. When we pulled into Napa, we were pleased to see how beautiful the town is. Victorian homes with manicured lawns line the streets. The Inn on Randolph fits seamlessly into the neighborhood and its charming curb appeal made us feel like we were right at home.
The main house, which includes the dining area, is tastefully decorated with a cozy fireside seating room. We were greeted cheerily and given a glass of wine to enjoy on our quick tour. There are a few rooms in the main building and the rest are located in small cottages with private entrances.
Our room was beautifully decorated in warm colors. The stone fireplace and seating area were welcoming and comfortable. We had plenty of space to unpack a bit and get comfortable for our two-night stay. We were surprised by how modern the rooms were, thanks to a recent renovation. The bathrooms all feature jetted tubs and heated tile floors. The provided toiletries were far more extensive than I would normally expect from a bed and breakfast, the flat screen TVs were large and wall-mounted, and the beds were incredibly comfortable.
Since we were traveling with friends, we got to see their room as well and it happened to be the Honeymoon Suite. This suite has a little extra space, a larger bathroom and a mini bar. The stone fireplace was an accent here as well, although the room was decorated in blue sea tones for a different feel. All the rooms are uniquely decorated with distinctive features like a private outdoor seating area.
Each morning we were treated to an incredible fresh breakfast prepared by the resident chef. We had told the innkeeper the night before what time we would like breakfast and our meals were prepared for us when we arrived. During our brief wait, we helped ourselves to yogurt, granola, fresh fruit and coffee and tea.
Both mornings our breakfast was a breakfast bowl, but they were quite different. The first day was a polenta-based dish with crispy bacon and vegetables topped with a poached egg. The next day, the base was potatoes au gratin garnished with brocollini, arugula and another perfectly poached egg. The dishes were beautifully presented and filling; ideal for fueling up for a day of wine tasting.
The Inn on Randolph is a five minute walk from the main stretch of Downtown Napa. We walked everywhere we wanted to go. The innkeeper gave us more free tasting cards than we were able to use and gave us great recommendations for a day of wine tasting Downtown.
The experience at The Inn on Randolph is relaxing, quiet and laid back. We felt like we were staying in total luxury, but without a hint of uptight atmosphere. The Inn was ideal for us traveling as two couples and would make a perfect honeymoon spot. A few of the cottage rooms have adjoining doors, which would be great for a family or a group of friends. Complimentary afternoon cheese plates encourage guests to explore the sheltered garden or leave their rooms to sit by the fire inside.
