About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Harvard House, a charming Napa Valley retreat is centrally located between the Napa and Sonoma Valleys less then a mile from the Carneros Region. Located in Napa with easy access to Hwy 29 and Silverado Trail you can tour all the wineries that the Napa Valley has to offer. A short 15 minute drive will have you enjoying the sights and sounds of downtown Sonoma.

This charming 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is located in the quiet neighborhood of Browns Valley on the west side of Napa. The gourmet kitchen and living space have a great room open feel, perfect for hanging out with friends and family. The vacation home was remodeled in 2014 and totally refurnished in late 2016. You will experience complete privacy in the lush backyard and the home is perfect for entertaining with its large state of the art kitchen and open floor plan. All three bedrooms feature comfortable queen size beds with high quality linens. The home has indoor and outdoor dining areas, living room with a 55” TV and a wood burning fireplace. The private backyard is quiet and perfect for enjoying morning coffee while watching hot air balloons fly over. After a day of wine tasting enjoy an afternoon BBQ in the backyard and vino on the patio.

Do you love the outdoors? The home is close to two scenic nature parks with hiking trails. Cyclists from California and beyond come to the Mount Veeder area for the ultimate biking experience.

Downtown Napa has many restaurants, wineries and nightlife all within 3 miles from the home. The Oxbow Public Market has many restaurants, wine tasting, and brewery experiences. Downtown Napa features restaurants of all scales and we have many recommendations. Many wineries have brought tasting bars and the wine experience back into downtown Napa. All of these local features are located within a 5 minute drive of the Harvard House.

About Sarah Meyer

This property was home for many years to my three beautiful children and our family. We have many memories and spent a lot of time outside enjoying the beautiful park like backyard. Over the years we have shared this beautiful home with families and friends who are building their own vacation memories.

Sarah Meyer purchased this house in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Sarah,

Thanks so much. Our stay at Harvard was very pleasant and right down the street from the wedding at the Carneros Inn. In the meantime, my husband's sister just moved 1/2 mile away, so there are going to be a lot of good times in Napa at the Harvard House!

Thanks again.

Quiet, beautiful neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our party of 6. The open concept kitchen and living room allowed us to enjoy each other’s company longer than if we had stayed in a hotel. The backyard was beautiful, large, and very private. The neighborhood was quiet and charming.

Accommodating host and great house

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this Napa home. The owner was very accommodating and helpful and we very much appreciated it. Perfect for a family with adult children or sets of couples looking for a comfortable home-base. Great common space in the kitchen/dining room/living room. Convenient for all the fun Napa offers!
