Bel Abri Napa Valley Inn
Travel Blogs from Napa
Leaving Gualala on a sunny Saturday morning with the coastal mist embracing the coastline was a awesome way to begin our day. This part of California is not what we expected. The closer we got to San Francisco the more cattle ranches we went through. It just seems so rural. The peace really got to us which in no way prepared us for the onslought of …
... Manuwai and I walked around Stow lake, giving Michael time to get acquainted with the GPS and recover from his first drive.
Then over the orange Golden Gate Bridge. Marin County on the other side of the bridge seemed surprisingly suburban but sunny and warm. We stopped at the first winery - Ramesgate - which looked lovely set on the hill in a vineyard. The landscape looked very Australian ...

After dropping off our stuff we proceeded to our belated Valentine's Day dinner at Carpe Diem, which was probably one of the best meals I've ever had. We started off with an amazing cheese plate and a free glass of bubbly (I found a coupon online), then split a Quack n' Cheese, which is basically mac n' cheese but with duck on top. So ...
... The photos lack any color and look like they were shot in monochrome.
The highway from Oregon wound it's way through the Redwood forest. We went through the Avenue of the Giants and camped there overnight. Our hike through the redwood forests was amazing, some of these trees are thousands of years old and so impressive that pictures can't really capture their magnificence. Driving on the secondary highways is much better than ...
... out and went to find breakfast.
There is a food court in the same general area as the transit hotel. It includes a Starbucks, where we carefully did not go. Everyplace else was probably a chain, but we haven’t spent enough time in Asia to know.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBel Abri Napa Valley Inn
Having spent a night in Yountville during a sunny February Super Bowl weekend we were not sure if we wanted to get the h... out of this valley or not. Got the last room in the town but it wasn't worth the money. We called the Bel Abri in Napa and were very pleased with the service we received. This quaint bed and breakfast is affordable, friendly, central and very much worth the money. I would recommend this to couples.
