Room with a View

So the dinner is over and we are ready to make our way back to the hotel.  The Husics offer us a ride but I decline (My heels are fine).  Julie insists, however, because, she says, you cannot walk downhill in high heels. So we get into their SUV and are dropped off at the Marriott. Pleasant goodbyes.  When I wake up in the morning, I have an email with all the information needed to get to, and access, the guest house.  I am thinking, these people are scarily efficient.

So we rented a car and drove to Napa.  We were going to be having a late lunch in Yountville with some folks we met at dinner the night before but we want to find our digs during daylight hours so that we can stagger in effectively during the night-time hours.  After turning off Silverado Trail, and wending our way for 20 minutes along a winding country road and two security gates, we finally arrive at our destination.

And what a destination.  The residences (guest and main) sit at the midpoint of the 120-acre estate with the guest house having the higher elevation of the two.  The views are absolutely fantastic.  All of the pictures in this post were taken from the front of the guest house looking out over Stags Leap district.

The picture immediately above shows a partial view of the residence in the foreground.
