  • Introduction

    Intimate and luxuriously cozy, Lavender, a Napa Valley bed and breakfast hotel, combines the warm colors of Provence with contemporary design elements to create a vibrant setting that blends old and new. A lovely heritage home is the centerpiece of the inn's four buildings; the warmth of its wraparound porch is echoed in the enclosed veranda where breakfast is served daily. Don't miss a game of boules in the garden.

    This Four Sisters Inn blends the modern luxuries and sophisticated services of a boutique hotel with the traditional amenities and architecture of a B & B.

    Each guestroom features a fireplace, a king-size bed heaped with pillows and large brilliantly painted bathrooms with double sinks and contemporary surfacing. The inn also features wireless internet access throughout the property. There are two spacious guestrooms in the main house. The courtyard rooms surround the garden and are entered through a private patio. Your stay also includes a full signature breakfast, afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres, and our famous home-baked cookies!

    Our friendly staff will help you select the perfect room and assist you with planning a memorable stay.

    Four Sisters Inns Signature Breakfast

    Our signature breakfast buffet is included with your stay and features a sumptuous hot entrée prepared by our innkeepers. Blueberry Pancakes, Artichoke Quiche or Grand Marnier French Toast are just a sampling of what you can expect to find at breakfast each morning. We also prepare a fresh baked good such as our delicious Honey-Buttermilk Muffins, Blueberry Sour Cream Scones or Pumpkin Muffins. Breakfast also always includes cereals, breads, fresh fruit, juices, tea and coffee. Most of the dishes we prepare each morning can be found in our 6th edition The Kitchen Cookbook.

    Breakfast in Bed is available for $10 per day. Simply ask the innkeeper for the Breakfast in Bed form at check-in and be sure to return it to the front desk by 7:00 pm the night before you would like to receive Breakfast in Bed. This service may not be available at all inns.

    Dietary Restrictions

    Guests on special diets generally find many items in our buffet that are suitable to their needs. However, due to the small size of our inn and kitchen, we cannot accommodate all dietary requests (such as gluten-free, vegan, no nuts, etc.).  If you are on a restricted diet, you are welcome to store a small bag of your own foods in our refrigerator.

    You're Invited

    Join us for a complimentary glass of wine, plus cheeses, and savory hors d’oeuvres each afternoon. It’s the perfect way to relax and celebrate after a day of sightseeing. Plus, don’t forget about our cookies! Cookies are a Four Sisters Inns tradition – every day by 3 pm, you’ll find complimentary, freshly baked cookies, available near the the lobby area. We bake something different every day, so you never know which sweet treat awaits.

    Four Sisters Inns' The Kitchen Cookbook

    Our innkeepers are often asked for recipes, which is why we began compiling favorites in our own cookbook many years ago. Now in its 6th edition, The Kitchen at Four Sisters Inns is available at your favorite inn, as well as here on our website, for $15.95.  This updated version includes more than 90 recipes from our innkeepers, the same dishes our guests enjoy when they stay with us. Recipes are divided into five categories: Breakfast Sweets, Breakfast Dishes, Cookies, Tea Time Sweets and Tea Time Savories. The cookbook has a handy easel stand design; just pop it open and you’re ready to whip up a batch of Blueberry Lemon Muffins.

  • About Napa Valley

    Widely touted as one of the top viticultural areas in the world, the gorgeous Napa Valley is home to more than 300 wineries, from boutique producers in rustic barns to stately and formal chateaux.  Cool nights and warm days mean the climate is particularly hospitable to Cabernet Sauvignon…and to visitors who love to explore the valley’s charming towns and surrounding vineyards.

    In addition to wine tasting, favorite activities here include hot air ballooning, cruising the Napa River, getting pampered at famous spas, and enjoying Napa Valley’s renowned restaurants. Fall is an especially exciting season, with the bustle of the grape harvest and its accompanying wine events. But the more serene winter season brings its own magic, when the vineyards glow with the gold of blooming wild mustard, and usher in the three-month Mustard Festival.
