The Poetry Inn
After booking a stay at the Poetry Inn, keep your phone with you. Because, soon enough, a personal concierge is going to call to find out all the ways your every whim can be catered to while you’re a resident at this sprawling mansion. The only hotel in the coveted Stags Leap district of Napa Valley
, the inn has the kind of customized, one-step-ahead-of-you service normally reserved for landed gentry. Which is, essentially, what its owner is, if California had an aristocracy; Cliff Lede is one of Napa’s most successful vintners. After deciding not to turn the well-located space into a private home, Lede instead made it an estate worthy of a design magazine, equipped it with the amenities that he would want, and opened it up to anyone who shares his desire for privacy, stunning views, and exceptional experiences. So, answer that phone, get a reservation at a Michelin-starred restaurant, plan some private biking and winetasting tours, have your suite pre-stocked with local delicacies, and arrange a private dinner cooked by an acclaimed chef. Welcome to the good life.
