Retreat to The Carneros Inn, a luxe property surrounded by vineyards and rolling Napa hills, just an hour from San Francisco. Eighty-eight cottages with private patios and fireplaces are strewn about the 27-acre property. Nearby wineries include the Acacia Vineyard, Bouchaine Winery and Domaine Carneros.
There are bikes to borrow complimentary to explore the area (for those aged over 14), and the resort has two pools with hot tubs, including an adult-only infinity Hilltop Pool. From June-October, there are complimentary films shown at the outdoor cinema on Saturday nights. There is also a spa on site, with a wide range of treatments available -- try a quince massage, olive and rosemary scrub, or organic facial using algae and tea. For active guests, there is a fitness centre and weekly boot camps, yoga, and vineyard runs.
Take your pick of cuisine at three on-site restaurants: FARM, The Boon Fly Café and the Hilltop Dining Room. Market, the general store on property, is a great place to stock up on sandwiches, cheeses and other picnic fixings prior to a day of wine tasting. Be sure to try the handmade doughnuts served during breakfast at Boon Fly. FARM (closed Monday-Tuesday) is the formal option, with dishes such as Alaskan halibut, Australian black truffles, blueberry lavender empadas, and white peach ice cream sammiches.
The cottages all have a private outdoor shower (as well as an indoor option), fireplaces (wood burning or gas), heated bathroom floors and patio. Upgrade to a Vineyard View room if you can. Dogs are permitted in some rooms (extra charges apply).

"Romance is built into the fiber of The Carneros Inn from its location in the midst of rolling Napa Valley hills to its alfresco showers" -- USA Today
