A luxurious, secluded oasis nestled in the Napa Valley
Cruising along the scenic, winding Silverado Trail past rows of vineyards and tall oaks, it’s easy to feel a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but as soon as you turn onto Meadowood Lane and drive up the forested road to Meadowood Napa Valley, you’ll feel transported right into a storybook. Tucked away in a shaded, private canyon merely minutes from downtown St. Helena, the five-star, award-winning resort exudes the grandeur and elegance of a chalet, with its classic architecture, impeccably manicured grounds, and lush environs. Guests will likely never want to leave this secluded, sumptuous haven surrounded by nature and steeped in history.
Meadowood was originally designed and opened as a country club in 1964. Meadowood founding partner H. William Harlan purchased the property in 1979 and has guided its evolution into an elite resort with contemporary amenities, a gathering place for the Napa Valley’s esteemed wine-making community, and a world-renowned dining destination. Today, Meadowood is committed to creating an exclusive, memorable Wine Country stay for discerning travelers by offering luxurious lodging, fine dining, spa and wellness facilities, recreational activities, and stellar service—everything runs seamlessly from the moment guests arrive, starting with the gatehouse staffers, who alert the front desk about arrivals. It all culminates in an unparalleled and unforgettable resort experience.
Creating a Serene Escape
There are 85 cozy cottages, sophisticated suites, and upscale lodges scattered across the 250-acre property, providing serenity and privacy for every guest. Redesigned by Howard Backen—considered by many to be the Napa Valley’s premier architect—the meticulously maintained guest rooms are all unique, but most feature vaulted, white, open-beam ceilings; designer furniture; wainscoted walls; gas or wood fireplaces; private patios or balconies with picturesque views; and plush, comfortable beds that make it difficult to get up in the morning. Some rooms even have heated bathroom floors and deep soaking tubs. But no matter which of the 17 room types you check in to, you will be able to enjoy the following amenities:
- Bottled water, coffee, espresso, and tea
- Generously stocked mini-bars
- Daily newspaper delivery
- Terry bathrobes and in-room slippers
- High-speed Wi-Fi
- Flat-screen TVs
- Housekeeping twice daily, with turndown service
- Transportation around the property, upon request
- Complimentary daily wine reception
Discovering the Magic of Meadowood
Other coveted amenities make Meadowood distinctive, too. All guests have access to the highly acclaimed Meadowood Spa—which offers rejuvenating treatments, relaxation gardens, and a health-focused eatery—and the recently renovated fitness center, where there are daily classes in addition to exercise equipment, free weights, and medicine balls.
There are also ample opportunities for outdoor recreation. Walk along the four-plus miles of hiking trails, practice your serve on the tennis courts, explore the stunning property via bicycle, go for a dip in one of the three swimming pools, and perfect your swing on the nine-hole golf course. You can even dress in your best whites and partake in a grown-up version of croquet on the professional croquet lawns; grab a mallet and hit the court on your own, or take a lesson with the Napa Valley’s only croquet pro. Each activity enhances the overall Meadowood experience and enables guests to fully immerse themselves in the magical landscape.
Guests can also revel in the enviable environs while savoring a meal at one of the on-site eateries. Grab a snack at the Creekside Dining Area, enjoy a farm-fresh meal at The Grill, and experience a truly enchanting dinner at The Restaurant at Meadowood—one of the only seven Michelin three-star restaurants in the western United States—where Executive Chef Christopher Kostow crafts innovative, seasonally driven dishes from the bounty of Napa Valley.
Between the world-class dining, recreational activities, sophisticated spa, posh accommodations, gracious hospitality, and spectacular setting, Meadowood leaves guests wanting for nothing but yearning to return time and time again.
