Napa visitors who prefer an in-town location will be delighted with the Blackbird Inn. Staying at this eight-room charmer in the heart of downtown means guests are walking distance from the wonderful restaurants, entertainment venues, wine tasting rooms and other diversions they are excited to explore. Whether here for a specific event such as the BottleRock Napa Valley music festival, or completely without an itinerary, Blackbird Inn is a beautiful and convenient choice.
Blackbird Inn is also a fine choice for anyone who appreciates authentic California Craftsman architecture and design. The historic 1902 property was painstakingly restored by master craftsman Scott Warren, who transformed the building into a work of art. The inn’s exterior features a foundation of local river rock, which allows it to blend into its natural surroundings. Massive porch columns and generous use of brick accent the stone and enhance the intentional rustic aesthetic. The building’s half timbering and exposed rafter tails are meant to show elements that would usually be hidden. Inside, guests quickly notice the large stone fireplace, exquisite use of fine woods, period lighting and fabrics, stained glass, and top-quality, hand-made furniture.
Each guestroom here features a king or queen bed, television, private bath, and many feature a fireplace, private deck and/or jetted spa tub. The rich and handsome décor extends to the guestrooms. Complimentary amenities include wireless Internet access, on-site parking, movies, books and games to borrow, daily newspaper, and refreshments throughout the day.
Guests at Blackbird Inn quickly learn to look forward to breakfast each day, a bountiful buffet that tempts them with a hot entrée every morning, plus an array of delicious baked goods, cereals, fresh fruits, juices and other goodies. Because the menu changes every day, there are always enticing variations; Blueberry Sour Cream Scones might tempt you one day, and Mexican Quiche will get your attention the next.
Every afternoon, Blackbird Inn staff presents afternoon wine, tea and hors d’oeuvres to guests, a perfect way to unwind before heading out to dinner.
One smart way to visit Napa is to plan your stay around one of Blackbird Inn’s seasonal packages. In late fall and winter, numerous specials allow visitors to experience this world-renowned region and enjoy tremendous values. Take a look at packages such as Blackbird Inn’s Wine Country Uncorked, Secret Weekend, or the Bon Appetit Dinner Package on the inn’s website.
