"You won’t find warmer and more enthusiastic hospitality served together with the best breakfasts we’ve ever had in the most central location in the Napa Valley.”

"You made our first experience at a B&B a memory we will never forget ... it would not have been as romantic nor made such vivid memories without your beautiful home, the picture perfect garden, the evenings spent drinking wine and laughing on your patio.”

"My wife and I celebrated 21 years of blissful marriage at Shady Oaks Country Inn and had a wonderful stay. The room was comfortable, the food was great, and the advice for local activities priceless."

"Some friends and I stayed recently for three days. We had a wonderful stay. The Inn is in a great location. It was the perfect place to start two days of wine tasting - first in Napa Valley and then Carneros."

"My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon and it was great! We stayed in the Winery Retreat, this big, pretty room set apart from the main house with a fire place. It's right off the main road in St Helena so getting anywhere is quite easy and the grounds are really pretty."

“Incredible breakfasts and unequaled hospitality. John’s wines were to die for!”

"We recently stayed in the Sunny Hideaway with our son and daughter-in-law while in St. Helena for a wedding. Perfect location just down the street from the wedding venue! Our rooms were very comfortable with plenty of room, albeit cozy, for the four of us. Breakfasts were absolutely the best - very filling and delicious start to each day."
