Wine Country: Napa, Churchill Manor

Churchill Manor 485 Brown St./Oak St., 2 blks. from downtown, (800) 799-7733, (707) 253-7733. 10 rooms. Unsuitable for children under 12. Some fireplaces; no TVs. Afternoon & evening snack, full breakfast. No pets. A National Historic Landmark, this 1889 grand mansion has a massive front porch with white columns, large verandas, and original redwood moldings. It is situated on an acre of quiet, park-like manicured grounds. Guests are pampered with freshly-baked cookies upon arrival, wine and cheese in the evening, and breakfast the next morning in a stunning sunroom with mosaic-tiled floor. Guest rooms are large and furnished with antiques, and many are equipped with a clawfoot bathtub right in the bedroom or a shower for two in a lovely tiled bathroom. Two tandem bicycles and croquet are provided for complimentary use. Guests can also relax in the posh, spacious public rooms featuring beveled leaded-glass adornments, and perhaps play some tunes on a grand piano in the music room or enjoy a board game or movie in the game room.
