The Carneros Inn undergoes $9M renovation, rebranding

The resort’s 86 cottages and 10 suites are more than halfway complete with a $3 million renovation program to reinvigorate the interiors.

Flynn Properties completed part of a $9 million renovation of The Carneros Inn, a 28-acre property in Napa Valley, with the property rebranded as Carneros Resort and Spa.

Already, the property completed its $6 million first phase of renovation in which Carneros Resort and Spa unveiled a number of property enhancements. These include the debut of a new wedding and events venue known as The Arbor, revitalization of the family pool, and a newly built guest reception relocated near the fine dining restaurant, FARM. FARM was also remodeled with a new bar and outdoor terrace with a fireplace, overhead heaters and new lounge furniture.

The resort’s 86 cottages and 10 suites are more than halfway complete with a $3 million renovation program to reinvigorate the interiors with new furnishings and lighter color palettes to match the property's farm-style architecture. Carneros Resort and Spa also updated the names for all 17 cottage neighborhoods to reflect local flora and fauna indigenous to the region.
