Lavender Inn: French Country Hotel in Yountville

If you are looking for a relaxed and beautiful spot to stay in Yountville, then look no further then the Lavender Inn. This historic house has a half dozen rooms built on the property and is a fun bed and breakfast only a stones throw from both the famous French Laundry and downtown Yountville itself. I got the opportunity to stay there for two nights and here is all the information.

Getting There

Lavender Inn is located right off Washington St (main street in Yountville) on Webber Ave. There is parking around the inn itself with street parking and a few spaces.

The Hotel

Lavender Inn-2-2

The main building of the hotel is a beautiful old historic house from the mid-1800’s. It is on the National Register of Historic Places and went through a careful renovation in 1999. This is where you will check in, have breakfast in the morning, wine and cheese in the afternoon and relax near the fireplace.

The main lobby always has fresh cookies in it and sodas in the small mini fridge. It is not staffed at night, but your key gets you into the room if you need a late night cookie or some coffee in the early morning.

The Rooms

Lavender Inn-1

The rooms are located outside of the main building around the property. There is a little dirt path that goes to all of them, but none are further than a one minute walk from the main building.

Lavender Inn-4

A few of the rooms have small patios with outdoor spa tubs while others just have the outdoor patios.

Lavender Inn-2

The rooms themselves are large and inviting with King sized beds and electric fireplaces. I found the later to be a great addition, especially on cold winter nights in the area.

Lavender Inn-3

The bathroom is large as well with a big bathtub, cement floors, and dual sinks. I was very impressed with the rooms and the staff that manned the facility as everything was top notch.

The hotel also has four bikes that they check out on a first come first served basis, we grabbed a few and used them to explore the downtown area a couple of times while we stayed there. It was a nice addition that helped you stay active.

The Food


I was impressed with the breakfast as it was not the traditional continental breakfast, it was food you actually wanted to eat. When I was there, we had things like vegetable keesh, home fried potatoes, fresh fruit and french toast. It is still buffet style, but the food was great. The afternoon wine time was also an excellent addition as they had both a red and a white wine from different wineries and a plate of cheeses that you could eat with the wine. I found it to be a nice touch that helped create a relaxing atmosphere.

All in all, I had a great time at Lavander Inn. Everything from the large spa tubs to the freshly baked cookies provided a great home away from home while I was exploring Yountville.
