At a Glance

This one-time riverfront mill, which served Napa for over 100 years and stored fertilizer and supplies for the Valley’s growing vineyard business, now houses a 66-room hotel.

Indagare Loves

  • On-site bakery for fresh croissants in the morning
  • Historic setting in a former mill
  • Eco-conscious initiatives


With modern amenities and a green initiative program (including a river cleanup project, locally sourced bath products and construction using bricks made with clay from the nearby riverbed), the Napa River Inn manages to contemporize an otherwise quaint property. Antique furniture and claw-footed bathtubs remind one of the location’s long history. The boutique hotel is best suited for couples or a girl’s weekend, but all will appreciate the on-site bakery that makes and delivers piping hot muffins and croissants in wicker baskets each morning. Rooms overlooking the river offer scenic views, but can get noisy at times. In the lobby, don’t miss a handwritten inscription found beneath the mill’s original floorboard, made in 1885.
