QUESTION: What are some family friendly resorts in Napa, Ca for a family of 4 Adults and 2 children ages 8, 10?

ANSWER: The Carneros Inn   

Nestled among 27 acres of seemingly endless rows of grape vines, unspoiled farmland, and scenic apple orchards, The Carneros Inn's design was based on cues from the local countryside - including barns, silos and ranchers' cottages - and combined with stylish, modern interiors - to capture the region's distinct charm as well as the needs of sophisticated guests. Gravel paths that crunch underneath your feet, private gardens where you can enjoy a glass of California's finest wines, exclusive dining at the first class Hilltop restaurant, outdoor showers under a blanket of stars, crisp white linens, and decadent spa treatments inspired by local ingredients ensure an experience you'll never forget. Whether you're here to get away from it all, or to get together with friends and loved ones, there is something for everyone at The Carneros Inn. Canine family members are welcome as well.
