Napa Valley

A quick, scenic drive from the San Francisco International Airport, Napa Valley centers around four main towns: Calistoga at the North of the valley, St. Helena and Yountville in the center, and Napa at the South end. One of America’s top viticulture regions, vintners in Napa Valley have been producing premium wines here since the early nineteenth century. Today, the valley features more than four hundred wineries specializing in a number of grape varieties. Napa Valley is also home to several large annual cultural events, including the Festival del Sole, the Napa Valley Film Festival and the BottleRock Napa Valley Music Fest.

Our Location

Located midway between the main St. Helena Highway and the Silverado Trail, Shady Oaks Country Inn is just south of downtown St. Helena, on the quiet Zinfandel Lane. We are a short drive to the East and Bothe-Napa Valley State Park.
