The original l9th century estate, located in Napa's largest residential historic district, lived over 100 years with the Hannah Moore family and was their loving home. In the early days, when there weren't enough hospitals, many generations of Napans were delivered at home or at midwife centers, and in 1910 the property also became known as "Maternity Row." Hannah's granddaughter, Ima Mary Walker Burch, a midwife herself, established a women's health center within the residence, including converting the front parlor into a clinic and the dining room into the delivery room!
Now this extraordinary home has been transformed from this family-residence-cum-women's-health-center into a stunning compound. Set on almost a full acre, beautifully landscaped gardens generate a variety of colors, textures and hideaways. Lovely terraces and meandering stone paths invite guests to stroll or sit while enjoying Napa's temperate climate.
Guests have a choice of historic rooms or cottages. Each of the historic buildings has been lovingly renovated "from the studs up," ensuring that guests enjoy all the modern conveniences without losing the classic character of the original structures.
Our two newest buildings, the Spa and the Neiman Room, were designed to enhance your options for relaxation and pampering, while also providing a comfortable and sophisticated setting for private gatherings, including meetings, weddings and special events. Located within the Historic Residence is a third multi-room area that includes a sitting room, a large dining room, and a sunroom, which leads to the garden terrace.
Whether visiting for a romantic rendezvous or attending a business retreat, the attention to detail begins before you arrive. Let us assist you in creating an itinerary, an outdoor adventure, or a wine experience that will make your stay even more idyllic.
While at the inn, you decide how active or relaxed your days (and nights) will be. Indulge in an afternoon nap, rejuvenate with a luxurious massage or watch a favorite movie while sipping cappuccino in the Neiman Room. When you do venture out, Napa's revitalized downtown is only steps away from all things Napa!
