An introduction to Mt Veeder Estate

How would you describe Mt. Veeder Estate in a nutshell?

It’s a stunning, remote retreat set on a 55-acre working vineyard with sweeping views across the Napa Valley.

What is the story behind Mt. Veeder Estate, what was your inspiration to create it?

We have owned the property since 2003 and tore down the existing house to build the current one in 2015. We live in Los Angeles, so it wasn’t until our kids were a bit older that my husband had time to go up and oversee the build. To be honest, we never intended to rent it out but people started asking if they could stay and we love sharing it with guests who appreciate it.

In designing the house, we wanted to allow for that great group feeling where everyone can hang out together. My husband is a chef, so we knew that we wanted a beautiful kitchen but also to ensure that whoever was cooking wasn’t closed off from everyone else. We designed everything at the property to be very high tech — I can control the swimming pool, heating and hot tub temperatures through my phone.

How would you describe the atmosphere and interior design of Mt. Veeder Estate?

It’s relaxing, fun and just a beautiful place to get away. We usually go up with our kids and other couples to spend time hanging at the pool or hot tub and cooking together. While we employed someone else to do the interior design, we wanted it to reflect our love of antiques and interest in whimsy. There’s a lot of comfort (the mattresses are amazing) and it’s very quiet in the house as there is no street noise.

To you personally, what is so special about Mt. Veeder Estate?

It’s the memories of staying there and the ability to have 10 or 12 friends together without feeling like you’re on top of each other. Everyone can cook around the big kitchen island — it’s just a fun and relaxing place to be.

Mt Veeder Estate rooms & rates

There are 5 bedrooms upstairs, two king rooms and 3 queens. Downstairs is another room with twin beds for children (on request).

From the main entrance, you go up the stairs, and on the left-hand side is the living room while straight ahead is the dining room with its amazing views. It connects directly to the kitchen through an open-plan design. On the right-hand side is the master bedroom featuring its own closet and ensuite bathroom with a clawfoot tub. A hallway leads from the master bedroom to a Queen bedroom and a King bedroom that share a bathroom.

On the other side of the kitchen/dining area are two queen bedrooms, which also share a bathroom. Downstairs is another room with three twin beds and a queen pullout where our kids used to stay. While the property can sleep 16, we prefer to have no more than 10 guests staying at one time.

Out the front of the house is a shaded terrace and a 20-person dining table with a barbecue. At the back of the house is a pool and a pathway leading up a small hill to a cement hot tub.

Almost every amenity you could think of is included — toiletries, towels, bathrobes, slippers, sunscreen and bug spray. It’s a 20-minute drive to town, so I would hate for guests to have driven all the way up here to realise they have forgotten a toothbrush and have to go back into Napa. We also provide guests with two bottles of wine from our vineyard and there are lots of kitchen staples such as oils, spices and pasta.

On request, we can organise for private chefs and masseuses to come to the property and are also happy to stock the house with groceries before guests arrive. Aside from offering recommendations for restaurants and activities, we can also facilitate getting into some of the local wineries.

Things to do in California & Napa

  • Shopping / Markets
  • Wine tastings
  • Cooking classes
  • Massages / Treatments
  • Yoga classes
  • Hiking
  • Cycling

This region is, of course, an oenophile’s dream, with myriad boutique wineries, wine tours, and tasting rooms within easy reach. World-class and local-favorite dining options include The Restaurant at Meadowood, Goose & Gander, Redd Wood, the French Laundry, and Ciccio (where the Valley’s Italian immigrant traditions can be savored). Get deeper into the natural beauty of California Wine Country at the Bouverie Wildflower Preserve or Sonoma Overlook Trail, and drive about 20 miles to Sonoma Square.

I would recommend going hiking or cycling and also spending a day on the Sonoma Coast, including oysters for lunch. There is also good shopping in the region.

The location of Mt Veeder Estate

With a lofty vantage point on a 55-acre private vineyard, this villa gazes out on panoramic vistas of wine-rich Napa Valley. As the estate is quite remote, guests definitely need a car to get around. We are 20 minutes from Napa, 30 minutes from Sonoma and 1.5 hours from San Francisco. You can be at the Sonoma Coast in around 1.5 hours and Los Angeles is six hours’ drive away (or a one-hour flight).

Mt. Veeder divides Napa and Sonoma and there are tons of wineries nearby. Around 30 minutes north of us is Oakville, then beyond that is St. Helena and Calistoga. There is a Wholefoods supermarket in Napa and you can get Amazon deliveries, although you do need to put quite specific directions or your items will be left by a tree! The closest restaurants are 20 minutes away in Napa.

When is the best time to visit California?

I am a big fan of the first half of the year — the spring is stunning and I also love the winter as it’s so green and beautiful. Probably the best time is March to July. After that, things can get very hot. September/October is the harvest season but considering the fires we have had the last few years, there are no guarantees that it won’t be smoky.
