Napa Valley Honeymoon?

Recommended Posts

Hi :)

 

We did not honeymoon in Napa, but we have vacationed there - we stayed at and LOVED the Candlelight Inn. They have a private cottage "the cottage" that isn't on their website, but it's just fabulous.

Whatever you do make sure you go on some sort of Wine Tour. I am sure that is assumed but it is truely soooo much fun. I haven't gone in a long time. BUT had a blast when I did. I heard great things about the Train but I know there are also services that provide a limo and take you around. FUN FUN FUN. Good luck!

Gaia Gaia Napa Valley – A Romantic Hotel and Spa.
Napa River Inn www.napariverinn .com/
just an FYI, the Gaia is actually in American Canyon so you have to drive about 15 minutes into Napa to get to the main wineries, with traffic on the weekends in the summer it could take up to 30 minutes. Its a beautiful hotel and they even have swans in the pond.
Each room has a huge bed with really comfy bedding, which we loved.

There are also really romantic "couple spa" places there. John and I went to one years ago...forgot the name...but it was really conducive to romance and relaxation. I'll try to remember the name. I think it was either in Calistoga or Sonoma.

oh don't do the wine train, you can't get off to taste and its really expensive. You just ride around Napa but its so much more fun to get one of the tours. We hired a bus to take our friends and family around to about 4 wineries (by the way you can't do more than about 5-6 in a day)

Oooh that sounds nice. Let me know if you remember the name of the place :)

Thanks!

Thanks for the advice, this company has great reviews on tripadvisor.com so I was thinking about using them:
Napa Valley Wine Tours - Charters - Wine Tasting

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
