Flynn Properties Inc. has just completed the final phase of its $9-million-renovation at the former Carneros Inn in Napa Valley, which is located on 28 acres of land. The property will now be known as the Carneros Resort and Spa.
The $6 million first phase of the renovation included a new wedding and events venue entitled The Arbor, updates to the family pool, a new guest reception building and the remodeling of FARM, the hotel’s fine-dining restaurant. FARM now features a new bar, an outdoor terrace with a fireplace, overhead heaters and lounge furniture.
Carneros Resort and Spa is also undergoing a $3-million-renovation of its 86 cottages and 10 suites, which is halfway complete. The renovation spans the interiors of the rooms and includes new furniture and paint to match the property’s farm-style architecture. The names of the 17 cottage neighborhoods at Carneros Resort and Spa have also all been updated to to reflect local flora and fauna native to the region such as “lavender,” “fig,” and “juniper.”
Finally, the name change from Carneros Inn to Carneros Resort and Spa is to reflect Flynn Properties’ mission to ensure a relaxing resort experience in California’s Wine Country. A new logo for the property includes an image of a ram’s head as ‘carneros’ is Spanish for rams, referring to the earlier use of the area as grazing land for sheep. A new website has also been launched to mark the completion of the project.
