  1. I'm a Napa native Stephen. Most any upscale bed and breakfast you stay in around here is a pleasant experience. The lifeblood of this burb is tourism. I have only stayed in Churchill Manor, but I can assure you that they all are very pleasant stays. This B&B is located on Brown Street, which is part of the old downtown area. It's very charming. Have Fun. If you need any winery or eats info give a bark!

        If they don't already have a reso at the French Laundry they aren't eating there. I advise all hounds to check out the review a brother hound posted on the main board. The woman taking reservations is not a pleasant person. My fiance was treated so bad by these people that I wouldn't eat there if Thomas Keller footed the bill. Have them try the Foothill Cafe in Napa. I think Tra Vigne is overated. Brix is neat, but I have a reason for this bias, I knew half the staff at one time. The menu had some neat little twists on asian fusion, nd a large wine list. The executive chef, and chief souus chef have moved on to other ventures. I have always dug the Royal Oak room at Silverado country club. I wish your friends the time of their lives.
