My husband, young daughter, and I had an absolutely fantastic time at Val's place. As my daughter said, "If you have a place as nice as this, you should be proud of it!" The yurt itself was nice, clean, and cool, even though we had 90-degree days during our stay. There are several trees shading the yurt, and it had several mesh windows, which we left open all the time. The bed was very comfortable, and we brought a small camping cot for our daughter, although Val offered to provide an air mattress for a fee. The yurt is located about 25 feet from the pool, hot tub, and a building housing the kitchen and bathroom. The garden along the path is gorgeous, and Val has about twenty, different fruit trees! So we feasted on fresh plums and mulberries and admired his apple and pear trees and some absolutely enormous squash plants, of which Val gave us a few to take home with us. Next to the building with the kitchen and bath and adjacent to the pool was Val's house. Val was an incredibly friendly and interesting host. He provided us with a very nice bottle of red wine on our arrival, told lots of great stories, gave us good recommendations for restaurants and activities, made a campfire for us each night in the fire pit, and pointed out lots of interesting tidbits about the local flora and fauna to my daughter. She was captivated! The pool and hot tub were wonderful, and Val provided a raft and some pool noodles to float on. We spent a whole evening just splashing around. There is also a bridge right next to the yurt that crosses a small creek over into the neighboring vineyard, where we took a peaceful, relaxing walk in the beautiful surroundings. We didn't really use the kitchen for cooking, but Val left us some space in the fridge to store leftovers from restaurants, and I can attest that the kitchen was fully stocked with anything you would need to prepare a meal. The bathroom had a shower, toilet, and sink with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. We brought our own towels, and there was some shampoo and body wash to use.

Val's place is about 20 minutes from Napa downtown and 20 minutes from Lake Berryessa, and we visited both. Val's place is out in the country with few neighbors, so you are really out in nature, yet close to plenty of Napa vineyards, farms, parks, etc.. In Napa we visited the Oxbow Market, the CIA at Copia, and Grace's table for great meals in an upscale setting. We took our daughter on a farm tour at nearby Connolly Ranch for the animals and the tire swings. We visited the Trefethen and Andretti wineries for a few tastings. We also drove to Spanish Flat on Lake Berryessa for a day of jet skiing on the lake, which was super fun and amazingly beautiful. We stopped at a cafe Val had recommended called Turtle Rock near the lake; it ended up being a cafe/biker bar and was decorated with tons of $1 bills people had signed and draped from the ceiling, which had a cool effect. We also stopped at Larry's Produce Market on our way home - another one of Val's recommendations - and picked up some wonderfully cheap and wonderfully good fruit and veg. The place was swamped, and they had a taco truck and snow cone stand on site to feed all the hungry shoppers. All in all, we had a wonderful time and hope to return in the fall. Thanks, Val!

Thank you so much, Kathy, Peter, and Kate for staying with us and for your beautiful review of our land here in Napa Valley! Indeed we have been so blessed living here and working the garden and orchard in this amazing valley! There is so much to do here, especially for the wine and good food enthusiasts! For those of you who desire more active rest, there is biking, hiking, and kayaking available nearly year-round. And for those who just want to get away from city life for a week or a weekend, you just rest by the swimming pool or sit around the outdoor fire under the stars in the evening. it is very quiet here at night. Thank you again for such a heartfelt review guys! Please do come back again! We loved having you all. :-)

This was our second time at Val’s, and again, we had a great time! I left a thorough description of the property in my earlier review, so I’ll skip that this time. Val has several kayaks, and he went above and beyond his regular hosting duties by taking us out on Lake Berryessa. The water was wonderful and nearly as warm as bathwater. So we hopped in for several swims. Super refreshing! Val also picked apples, pears, and grapes with my daughter, and they made fresh apple juice and dehydrated trays of sliced pears and grapes. He made my daughter (and sometimes my husband and I) a breakfast of fresh fruit and maybe some yogurt and granola each day. It was amazing to be able to grab and eat the most delicious fresh fruit straight off the vine. We also enjoyed the company of some animal friends, as a flock of turkeys came to nest in a tall tree on the property each night. We did a lot of swimming, hot tubbing, and hanging out by the campfire at Val’s, and other than that, we ate several excellent meals at the Oxbow Market, and did tastings at a couple family-friendly vineyards, including Black Stallion and Pine Ridge, which were both wonderful. Another very successful trip! Thanks, Val!

Thank you, Kathy, Kate, and Peter for coming again! You are always welcome here as you make the best guests! You are open to new experiences and I loved showing you my "secret" hideaway on the Lake Berryessa which in spite of Labor Day weekend wasn't very crowded at all. I also loved picking apples with your daughter Kate! Her unending enthusiasm for the discovery of all the varied fruits and vegetables in the garden was truly priceless for me! Thank you for taking me out to Oxbow Market for lunch, it was delicious! By now I feel you are more like friends than just random hip-campers. :-) Please come again!
