Napa Valley Inn - Cedar Gables Inn
Cedar Gables Inn Captures the romance and charm of the Arts & Crafts Movement in the early 1800s, the eclectic design of hand craftsmanship contrasts the technological forces of the Industrial Revolution. Escape the hustle and bustle of high tech bombardment and drift into a realm of simpler times. Cast away the stress of everyday life and find reprieve over a glass of Napa Valley wine amongst new friends, while encompassed by the rich décor and ambiance of the majestic redwood mansion.
Constructed in 1892 by one of San Francisco’s top three architects, Ernest Coxhead, Cedar Gables Inn feature dramatic interiors with open spaces. The expansive rooms boast walls of lead glass windows with gothic arches and accented small oval windows. Coxhead’s signature style blends classical and vernacular traditions with modern flair.

An Open Planned Mansion Shaped by a Palette of Natural Colors
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. 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 an 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. 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.
