Tel: 707 944 0646's insider take:

Owned by Cliff Lede (his namesake winery, tasting room, and art gallery are a stone's throw away), this three-room inn sits high on a vineyard hillside overlooking Napa Valley's Stags Leap District. The vistas are the very best in Napa. Spacious Craftsman-inspired rooms (named after famous American poets: Robert Frost, e.e. cummings, Robert Louis Stevenson) are done in a soothing palette of whites and tans, with dark wooden beds, feather duvets and fine Italian linens, wood-burning fireplaces, buffed Douglas-fir floorboards, and nubby sisal rugs. Gargantuan marble bathrooms have heated limestone floors, deep soaking tubs, and not one but two showers (a sexy, glass-enclosed one inside and an open-air shower on the deck). Breakfast is an elaborate, three-course affair, served on the veranda off the lounge (or in bed, by request). Though the service is gracious and the rooms sumptuous, the staggering view of the valley from your private balcony is ultimately why you're here.
