cici and I want to thank each and every one of you for sharing our blog adventures. we are celebrating this monumental occasion, her third birthday and six views over 100,000 at the beautiful and pet friendly Rancho Caymus in Rutherford. This is a great location in between Napa and St. Helena and all of the pet friendly wineries. Each suite is like a spacious casita, with its own patio, and pets can play all day. The staff is gracious and hospitality superb. You can walk to several wineries for tastings.
Breakfast is fruit, fresh granola, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, croissants and other breads, muffins and pastries, a nice diverse mix.
join the party !
this is a great place for a girlfriends getaway, too, nature abounds all around here, you can take a bicycle tour throughout the region, enjoy a hiking or kayaking adventure, a day of rejuvenation and relaxation at one of Napa’s world-class spas, a sporty day of golf, or learn to create culinary masterpieces with the chefs of Napa. Or just kick back and go shopping. The local art galleries are abundant with exquisite pieces you will cherish for a lifetime.
Rancho Caymus can be your portal to the “Valley of the Vines.”
