Those looking for a quaint, European-style mineral hot springs resort where clothing is optional but good times are required should head to the Meadowlark Country House & Resort. Nestled in California’s extensive and highly acclaimed Napa Wine Valley, this resort is only for individuals 18+ and provides above and beyond service for its guests.
Hot Spring Baths and Pools
Meadowlark Country House & Resort is the only resort in Napa Valley that features day passes and clothing optional recreation. The resort features a spacious seasonally-heated mineral pool, with plenty of room for guests to soak, swim, and do laps. There’s also a hot tub for anyone who hopes to sit back and let their troubles melt away.
The pool (80° F) and hot tub (100-106° F) are filled with mineral-rich waters designed to soothe aches, encourage tranquility, and improve general well-being. They’re warmed by natural volcanic activity directly from the on-site deep well, ensuring a pleasant experience every time.
Whether you go for a stroll in the pool or relax in the tub, you can enjoy a lovely ambiance with plenty of European inspiration. When you’re done engulfing your body in waters, rest on the flagstone terraces and feast your eyes on the expansive landscape. Take your experience to the next level by enjoying the Finnish dry sauna!
While Meadowlark Country House & Resort offers a day pass, from 10 am to 6 pm, however, most guests will want to stay overnight. With 24-hour access to the pool and spa, soaking under the stars is an unparalleled experience.
There are a few options at the Meadowlark, including:
- Pool House – This quaint guest house comes with four queen-sized beds, a delightful fireplace, and impeccable views of the forest, meadow, and vineyard.
- Meadow House – Want something more modern? The new-age Meadow House, situated on the 20 acres of lush land Meadowlark has to offer, will suit the bill. The contemporary feel, paired with vibrant views, is unmatched.
- Suites – For those that prefer to book a suite instead, you will enjoy the many options at Meadowlark. Each suite comes with all the amenities, from fireplaces to private decks and jacuzzi tubs to complimentary WiFi (depending on which suite is reserved).
- Rooms – Rooms are a bit smaller, but they don’t skimp on luxury. Each room comes with its own perks, such as the Garden Room offering a stunning view of the garden and the Pond Room having a center-stage look at the goldfish pond and forest.
One of the perks of staying overnight at the Meadowlark Country House and Resort is the gourmet breakfast. Breakfast options are crafted using organic ingredients derived from the local farmers’ market as well as on-site fruit trees and gardens. The eggs come from free-range chickens that are organically fed, ensuring a delicious breakfast “egg”stravaganza.
The gourmet breakfast can be enjoyed on the luxurious veranda with crystal-clear 360 views of the beauteous surrounding nature or inside, surrounded by the roaring fire. Want to stay cozy underneath the sheets instead? Don’t worry – you can also have the breakfast delivered to your room.
