MILLIKEN CREEK INN, NAPA
This historic inn started life in the mid-1850s, when travelers during the Gold and Silver Rush would make a rest stop by this clean and accessible stretch of the Napa River along the Silverado Trail. Around the end of that century, horticulturst Ira McKenzie took up residence and planted the saplings of the Japanese maples, live oaks and magnolias which now tower over the main house’s gables and chimney. The trees mingle with the ferns and other shrubs in the lush, almost Edenic gardens, with a lawn leading right up to the bank of the river where you can lie on a lounger and blissfully watch the waters
flow on by.
It wasn’t until 1980 that the house returned to its roots as an inn. It was eventually renamed Milliken Creek Inn, and in 2013 it became part of the Four Sisters Inns collection. Fresh from a renovation this year, all rooms now boast king beds, the majority with luxury linens, fireplaces, deep soaking tubs and private decks with firepits — some overlooking the river. No spot is better for a made-to-order breakfast in bed; it comes complimentary, as do freshly baked cookies, and s’mores kits for some late-night indulgence under the stars. 1815 Silverado Trail, Napa, 707-255-1197; millikencreekinn.com
