Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Situated on a quiet residential corner of Downtown Napa across from stately bed & breakfast mansions, is Magnolia House, your home-away-from-home in the heart of the beautiful Napa Valley! Magnolia House is an 1890 Victorian farmhouse that has been tastefully restored and updated to feature today's modern conveniences, and has been well-stocked and equipped to provide our traveling guests with everything they would need to make it the perfect home base while they explore all that Wine Country has to offer.

Magnolia House guests enjoy the convenience of being a short walk to the Napa River and the Riverwalk Shopping and Dining District. Enjoy being steps away from 5-star dining, live music, wine bars, shopping, and galleries. The Oxbow Market is also a short walk from Magnolia House as is the new Napa River Trail on the east side of the river, southbound, which will bring you to the new Cinemark Movie Theatre Complex, Velo Bike Rental, Forge Pizza, In-Shape Gym, and the Farmer's Market on Saturdays. The corner grocer is only a block away from Magnolia House where you will find some of the finest meats and poultry in Napa, then return to bbq in Magnolia House's welcoming, spacious back garden. A short morning stroll will bring you to Sweetie Pies--a local favorite--for morning coffee, scrumptious quiche and baked goods, then head back to the charming front porch of Magnolia House to enjoy a good book, good friends and plan your activities for your day in the wine country. Just blocks away from the house, you'll discover world class dining: some Napa favorites are Morimoto's, Angele, Cole's Chop House, Napkins, Celadon, Allegria's, Napkins, ZuZus. (Dining and winery maps and guides are provided at the house and the Napa Visitor's Center is 3 blocks away on Main Street.) When staying at Magnolia House, all that Napa Valley has to offer are easily within your reach. Wineries are a 10 minute drive from the house in any direction, and San Francisco and the Bay Area are one hour to the south.

Owned and operated by a local Napa fine artist and wine label illustrator, Magnolia House sleeps up to seven adult guests and 2 children in beds and consists of a ground floor queen bedroom suite with a spacious, light~filled bathroom featuring a tub/shower combo. Also, there is a downstairs half bath and washer/dryer with detergent provided. Upstairs features two charming bedrooms (one furnished with a pillow top queen bed, the other features a pillow top full-size bed and a twin daybed) which share a hall bath with shower (baths furnished with hair dryers and plenty of extra towels). We furnish Magnolia House with high thread-count sheets, comfy faux down pillows, and fresh towels, as well as bath sheets for out guests using the spa, and all of the paper goods and detergents you would expect to have in your own home--toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, soaps and shampoos, etc. During your stay, you'll enjoy free wifi, a new 43"' flat screen cable TV with a DVD library, central A/C and ceiling fans throughout, a comfortable living area, wood~burning fireplace, spacious indoor dining for 8, a fully-equipped cherrywood kitchen featuring all stainless appliances, granite countertops, and gas range. The kitchen is well stocked with everything one might need to cook including most condiments, spices, coffee supplies, as well as some staple food items. Magnolia House offers off-street parking for up to 4 cars in its generous driveway. The backyard features lawns, deck and paved areas with tables and chair and lounge seating, bbq, fire pit, a corn hole bean bag game, and a hot tub that seats up to 6.

Magnolia House is close to easy access to Highway 29 and the Silverado Trail, home of the finest wineries in the world. Drive time: 5 minutes to Carneros Region wineries (southwest Napa) and 5 minutes to Napa wineries off Silverado Trail, 20 minutes to Sonoma Square, 15 minutes to Yountville, 25 minutes to St. Helena, 40 minutes to Calistoga. For the family with fun on its mind, the local playground is 5 blocks away at historic Fuller Park and Six Flags amusement park is 20 minutes south. It's a 55 minute drive to San Francisco, 55 minutes to Oakland International Airport, and 75 minutes to San Francisco International Airport.

Magnolia House is one of the 42 LEGALLY PERMITTED non-hosted, whole~home vacation rentals in Napa. We hold the City of Napa Vacation Rental Permit # VR09-0015; City of Napa Business License #26780. **In Napa, rent ONLY from legally permitted City vacation rentals to ensure your reservation will be honored and available when you arrive.**

To enhance your wine country experience, we are happy to supply our guests with concierge links on local activities and services such as wine tours and day spas, in advance of your visit to the Napa Valley.

All the best, and, again, thank you so much for all your attention to every detail.

Perfect House for Girls Get-away

  • 5 of 5

This cute Napa Farmhouse was the IDEAL house for our Girls Napa Get-away. There were six of us ladies and we couldn't have had a better stay. The layout of the house is terrific with one bedroom downstairs and two up... Beds were comfy, kitchen has everything you need to be able to cook your meals and the front porch and hot tub were very nice bonuses. Another nice feature was that we had plenty of Hot Water. With six ladies getting ready to go in the morning, we all were able to have a hot shower. Homeowner, Suzy, was terrific with her communications prior to our arrival and left us clear instructions in the house with how things run and also gave us ideas for places to visit in Napa and maps on how to get there. The location for this house is so convenient to downtown and it's in a super cute neighborhood of vintage homes. So Cute!! We had such a great experience staying here and will absolutely book again for our next trip. Thank you, Suzy!! We had so much fun!

Location & Amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Suzy was an exceptional host during our recent trip to Napa. The first part of my trip began with a conference for work, the weekend was spent with a work friend, and the last leg was spent with my husband for his birthday and Valentines Day. This house perfectly suited all purposes.

The house was immaculate and well appointed, in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen has everything you need - and I cook! Don’t forget the beautiful backyard with assorted seating areas and the most gorgeous pink magnolia tree, for which the house is named. The spa was nice after a long day on my feet. I slept like a baby and enjoyed the short walk to restaurants, Oxbow Market, and other destinations. Local wine tasting in Coombsville was a fabulous experience. We flew in and out of Sacramento - much nicer than Oakland!

Suzy was very responsive to questions before, during, and after our trip - while still allowing total privacy. We would definitely recommend this rental and would return to stay again!

Great house in downtown Napa!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Magnolia House! The location was perfect-easily walkable to all of the restaurants in downtown Napa. We loved walking to Sweetie Pies bakery each morning and eating breakfast and drinking our coffee on the front porch. The house was clean and spacious. The back porch and yard was perfect for having some wine and dinner at night. The beds were sooo comfortable! Central air and all of the fans were a nice addition given we were there during a particularly hot time in Napa. Neighborhood is super quiet.

I would highly recommend a stay at the Magnolia house if you are in Napa!
