The Majestic Cedar Gables Inn resides perfectly at 486 Coombs Street between Randolph and Brown Street in beautiful Downtown Napa just a short two-minute stroll from the Napa River and walking distance to many shops, fine restaurants, and wine tasting rooms. Staying at Cedar Gables offers an unparalleled Napa Experience where you can enjoy the best of Downtown Napa without driving. As one of America’s grand Arts & Crafts mansions, the historic 10,000 square foot Cedar Gables Inn is perhaps the most unique Bed & Breakfast manse in Napa County.
Eclectic and rebellious was the nexus of the Arts & Crafts Movement, which emerged in the early 1800s as a throwback to emphasize more hand craftsmanship and design to contrast the technological forces of the Industrial Revolution. This Arts & Crafts artistic movement is replicated in the experience you will have with your stay at The Cedar Gables Inn; Escape the hustle and bustle of today’s high tech bombardment of bits and bytes, and come and experience a return to more simpler times where you can cast away the stresses of everyday life and find reprieve over a glass of Napa Valley Wine amongst new friends, while being surrounded by the rich décor and ambiance of our historic Napa Bed & Breakfast.
Built by the famous English architect Ernest Coxhead, one of three top architects in San Francisco, in 1892 in the Arts & Crafts Style, this resplendent architectural masterpiece is an elegant 4-star bed and breakfast that is ideal for hosting grand parties, elegant social gatherings, holiday parties, or executive retreats. Best of all, Cedar Gables offers a romantic Napa retreat for couples. We do not allow children and do not have televisions in our guest rooms so you can enjoy a peaceful stay in solitude or enjoy the lost art of conversation and revel in Old-World elegance while you treat yourself to an unforgettable experience. Indulge in delicious three-course gourmet breakfasts.
Once you come upon The Cedar Gables Inn in Old Town Napa, you will be presented with an impressive structure built with coastal redwood and adorned with wooden shingles that climb the turrets and gabled roof punctuated by leaded glass windows and colorful mosaic inlays.
Cedar Gables was originally a wedding present from Edward S. Churchill to his son in 1892. One of the ‘Big Four’ mansions in Napa, The Cedar Gables has been home to many over the past century. Eventually sold by Churchill’s daughter, Dorothy, to Ella Balmer, the building was converted into a 33-room boarding house in the 1930s. The Cedar Gables Inn sign over the front door is a memento nearly a century old as it was originally put up by Ella after she planted two small cedar trees in the front yard hence the inn’s appellation. The home again exchanged hands when a local doctor purchased the property for his practice. Then during World War II, the mansion housed military nurses. Converted back to a single family home, then a high-class ladies spa, and now a bed & breakfast inn, Cedar Gables Inn has been painstakingly restored over the past decade. Cedar Gables Inn is a stored building that belongs to Napa’s history and is earnestly shared with the public.
In classic Arts & Crafts style, the open planned interior is shaped by a color palette that reflects the natural environment and consists of an ornate wood paneled foyer that leads to living space and formal dining room. A large den with a massive fireplace and tavern hosts gatherings. A large breakfast nook and modern kitchen lead to our expansive stone patio and garden where you can relax in the evenings. Lose yourself in the charming spaces throughout the property with sunny bay windows and seating areas bathed in nuanced lighting where you can enjoy some quiet solitude with your favorite novel. Winding staircases lead to our 9 beautifully adorned guestrooms...
