Now that your COVID-19 pandemic puppy is a full-fledged family member, it only makes sense to bring the four-legged companion to Napa Wine Country. While they may not sip on cabernet or chardonnay, plenty of Napa Valley hotels offer amenities to make their vacation just as enjoyable as yours. Here are the top 8 pet-friendly hotels to discover in Napa Valley.
Every dog gets a warm welcome at Solage in Napa Valley’s Calistoga. Personalized welcome cards, plus dog bowls and dog treats will make your canine companion feel as pampered as you will at this luxury resort. This pet-friendly hotel sits on 22 acres of land, so there’s plenty of space for your pup to roam and explore. Even better, rent a bike for yourself and take on the terrain together. Newly-built cottage-style suites with outdoor patios are an additional pet-friendly amenity.

Book a stay at one of Carneros Resort and Spa’s cottage dwellings, where the outdoor spaces are as carefully appointed as the interior. Gardens, patios, fire pits—even an outdoor rain shower—beckon both you and your four-legged friend. While you sip on wine, your dog can snack on locally made dog treats. A dog toy, leash, waste bags, and paw wipes ensure all your pet’s essential needs are met as well. If you plan to venture out on your own, the friendly staff can assist with setting up dog walking or dog sitting appointments.

p>City dwellers and their dogs will feel right at home at the Andaz, located in downtown Napa.

Pets have always been welcome at Bardessono, but recently the hotel showed its commitment to more animal friends through a partnership with Connolly Ranch. A portion of proceeds from its pet menu and pet fees will go towards food and veterinary care for the sheep at the Ranch. Like the wooly farm beneficiaries, well-behaved dogs are allowed to roam the gardens and property or join you at the pool. Your pet can even indulge in their own ‘Bone Appetite’ menu. To pair with dog-friendly dishes such as ‘Mindful Meats Beef & Carrots’ or ‘Mary’s Chicken and Rice’? Animal-friendly beer or wine such as Beefy Brown Ale or ZinfanTail.
6526 Yount Street, Yountville, CA 94599, (707) 204-6030
While many Wine Country visits are all about the soils and vines at your feet, Archer looks to the skies for a different perspective on a wine vacation—there’s a lot of action happening on this downtown Napa rooftop. Cool off on the Water Deck while you sip wine and nibble on bites from the Sky & Vine Rooftop Bar. Or, relax with a spa treatment on the rooftop spa. Don’t worry, Fido won’t even notice you’re gone; they will be too busy relaxing on their premium doggy bed or playing with toys, all provided for their comfort.

Dogs are welcome to join you on the alfresco patio as you dine.
