I was able to plan a long getaway weekend with my husband and it was so hard to figure out what we would do for 3 nights 3 days because there are so many things we want to do. The first time we did a getaway was for one night and one day and that was SO amazing and we understood how great it was to have us time.
There were so many choices and so many places we want to stay at but we had to make sure we are not too far away in case of the kids and since Milo was at his first away camp we wanted to be close to him as well. We really wanted to take the opportunity to stay at Point Ranch Inn or Ventana Big Sur but unfortunately they did not have any rooms available on the nights we wanted.
We had to stay close to Napa for our last night since we had to pick Milo up from his away camp the next morning. We played with the idea to stay at Napa/Sonoma/St. Helena area the whole trip but we couldn’t find much activities to do for that many days. Finally we decided to stay 2 nights 2 days in the city and our last day in Napa. It turned out to be a perfect combo. We made dinner plans with our friends each night and during the day we shopped and visited all our favorite eatery and just walked around the city (walking around is so nice with no kids).
We ended up staying at the St. Regis again for our city part and we stayed at the Vintage House at Yountville. Both places were great and very convenient location.
It was our first time staying at the Vintage House and the location was amazing, walking distance to Yountville and we got ourself a little bungalow which was a very nice experience. We even put down Vintage House as a place that would be good to stay with our kids.
I am already thinking where we could go next time when we get a chance to do a little getaway sans kids.
