Looking to take advantage of the dip in the real estate market without the hassle? Consider a fractional buy at the intimate Orchard at the Carneros Inn In Napa, California, which brings sustainable farmhouse living to life with ownership options in their 17 cottages running at just under $300,000 at the wine country resort.
Known for lazy days and fine meals, the Carneros Inn opened in late 2003 on 27 acres at the southern end of the Napa Valley, not far east of the Sonoma County line. The peaceful haven is an intimate community of luxurious fractional home cottages that share amenities with the renowned Carneros Inn resort. Managed by the PlumpJack Group, owners can use their units three weeks a year, with more time granted on availability.
Sold furnished, the two-bedroom, two-bath homes combine contemporary décor with sophisticated style. The units feature cherry-wood floors, wood-burning fireplaces, gourmet kitchens, private decks and courtyards with outdoor showers and whirlpools.
All the resort’s amenities are open to owners including an infinity pool overlooking vineyards, three restaurants, a lap pool lined with cabanas, children’s pool and fitness center with yoga and pilates studios. Voted “One of the Top 55 Spas in North America, in the Caribbean and at Sea” by Conde Nast Traveler’s 2007 Readers Poll, The Spa at the Orchard at the Carneros Inn offers treatments using ingredients from local vineyards including signature chardonnay grapes, olive oil and goat butter.
