About Leeanne Patterson

My husband and I purchased this property in 1996. It was 40 acres of unimproved property which, after several years of dedication and hard work, we developed into a home for our family and pets, a guesthouse for friends, and almost 30 acres of vineyards growing a Howell Mountain Reserve Cabernet. This is an ongoing labor of love. We love nature; we love the beauty of Napa Valley; and we love the serenity and peacefullness of our perfect heaven on earth.

Why Leeanne Patterson chose Angwin

Napa Valley is one of the most beautiful locations in the world. We wanted to build something to accommodate families or couples looking for a peaceful, private and comfortable retreat. We travel frequently with our extended family, and our goal was to build something that we ourselves would look for when searching for accommodations. The property is located in the Howell Mountain Appellation, known for its highly volcanic soils that produce coveted wine varietals. Howell Mountain tends to have cooler temperatures during the day and warmer temperatures at night, resulting in a longer growing season.

What makes this cottage unique

We offer the ultimate in privacy, peace and tranquility. The cottage is located on a private ranch estate with views of our vineyards. There are miles of hiking/mountain biking trails just down the street; we are just minutes from world-class wineries and award winning restaurants; we are in the mountains above St. Helena and typically above the fog line on summer mornings; and we'd love to share a glass of wine with you, share about our wonderful Valley, and assist you with your needs.

Such a charming, beautiful cottage that had everything we needed. My family gathered in Napa to celebrate September birthdays and we could not have had it any better ! My son flew in from New York and we enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evening , sampling amazing wine, loving the sky full of stars. My husband and I loved our morning walks ! Leanne and Pat such gracious hosts. We will be back to Howell Mountain !

Lovely vineyard cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage Casa Dell' Uva is a beautiful getaway location, located just seven miles from the heart of Napa Valley and is a beautifully maintained property. Our family and friends loved to gather in the great room, watching TV, hanging out, cooking and eating some tasty food we paired with the yummy wines we got in the valley. The coffee pot never seemed to stop as we had a few big coffee achievers with us. Surrounded by many large trees, we were able to look out on the Patterson's vineyards and take walks down the quite lane to the forest and access the trails for some nice hikes. The three bedrooms were beautifully appointed and the beds were comfortable as well.

Our plans changed shortly before our vacation and we brought an entirely different group of friends and family so we'll have to return with the original couple we planned on meeting there. Looking forward to trying the cottage during the spring when everything is in bloom!

The cottage is situated in Angwin, about 1300' above sea level so when you leave, it's a 7 mile down hill drive to St Helena. We were able to stock up on food at a Safeway supermarket and shop in St Helena. My wife and her friends hit up a very cute consignment shop in town and supported the local economy there and at other little shops on the main street. There are great shops and restaurants all along the street, very cute though a tad pricey.

Loved our time in the cottage and visiting the local wineries and am looking forward to a return visit.

Perfect home base

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the Howell Mtn house! It was such a great place to make our home base. We were able to hike through the Los Poblanos National Forest and the vineyards each morning before we began our wine tours. It was conveniently located off the Silverado trail, and only minutes from St. Helena and the great restaurants. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed to prepare breakfast daily and one special dinner. At night the breeze picked up and cooled us off as we sat on the deck and watched the stars.

We all agreed that we want this to be our home base for all our future Napa adventures. We will gladly recommend this house to our friends. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay here- we can't wait to return!

Amazing cottage/Gorgeous Property

  • 5 of 5

Leeanne and Pat were the most amazing hosts. They were quick to respond and were there if we needed anything. The cottage is adorable and had everything we needed. The property is stunning and definitely makes you feel like you are on vacation! It is surrounded by vineyards and has the most gorgeous trees on the property. As someone who has previously lived in Napa Valley, this definitely exceeds what most people expect when visiting.

This was a perfect getaway! The house has everything you need and the property is gorgeous. I wish we were planning a wedding because the barn for special events is amazing. There is no cable so bring movies if you want to watch anything. Thank you!
