Inside the Renovated Vintage House
December 22, 2017
Yountville has always been a center of gracious hospitality, located smack in the center of the Napa Valley. Now it’s undergoing a major transformation to heighten its allure even more. A 22-acre property called The Estate comprises the V Marketplace – a shopping and dining complex in the former 147-year-old red-brick Groezinger Winery – as well as the Villagio Inn & Spa and the Vintage House hotel (formerly Vintage Inn).
Vintage House, which opened in August 2017, features 80 spacious guest rooms, 8 mini-suites, and 4 villas decorated in an elegant contemporary style with gray and lavender color palettes. Each room features an outdoor patio or balcony, a large wood-burning fireplace, and down comforters; upstairs rooms also have vaulted beamed ceilings. The luxurious bathrooms have over-sized sunken whirlpool bathtubs, dual ceramic sinks, and ceramic tiling on the walls and floors. All rooms also include refrigerators and coffee-makers.
The full hotel complex includes two-story village-like buildings that evoke a contemporary farmhouse amid beautifully landscaped gardens and a flowing waterway. The property affords vineyard views of Domaine Chandon, one of the country’s leading producers of sparkling wines.
Current rates run from $250 to $605 for a perimeter courtyard, $300 to $505 for an interior courtyard and $375 to $705 for a suite. Guests can enjoy a glass of wine, a locally made microbrew, or a hand-crafted cocktail before being shown to their guestroom or suite. Other complimentary amenities include a daily continental breakfast, turndown service, Wi-Fi, and parking.
In addition, Vintage House guests are invited to unwind in a private cabana at the newly redesigned pool and can also take advantage of the newly renovated 13,000-square-foot Spa Villagio – one of the area’s premiere luxury day spas. And the new hotel is also within easy walking distance of Yountville’s many premium shops and restaurants, including Thomas Keller’s Michelin three-star French laundry.
