Gift Yourself A Wellness Retreat At Harvest Inn In St. Helena, California

Northern California is home to no shortage of wellness retreats, but the offerings at Harvest Inn in St. Helena go beyond the typical events at meditation centers and health spas. Located a short walk to town in St. Helena or a quick drive in the resort’s car service to many of Napa Valley’s most acclaimed wineries, Harvest Inn is ideally situated for enjoying California’s world-renowned wine country. While that on its own would be enough to satisfy many travelers, Harvest Inn’s idyllic architecture and park-like setting, which backs to working vineyards, make the property serene enough to transform a wine country visit into a wellness weekend.

Mix in fantastic food with an eye for health-conscious ingredients (and special dietary needs) as well as hosted meditation retreats, Saturday morning yoga, pools heated year round, and on-site massage, and the Harvest Inn checks all the boxes for wellness travel. In fact, the resort has so much to offer, you won’t have to leave the property if you’re craving a getaway where you can move slowly, enjoy good food, and truly unwind. Here’s how to plan your own perfect wellness getaway at Harvest Inn in St. Helena, California.

Book A Daylong Wellness Retreat At Harvest Inn

Not to be missed, the Daylong Feed Your Soul Wellness Retreat is hosted quarterly and can be booked on Harvest Inn’s event calendar. The next retreat will be held on Sunday, February 5, 2023 from 9 A.M. to 4 P.M. with additional dates added each quarter throughout the year. Expect to experience guided yoga and meditation as well as opportunities to connect with other participants and journaling to record what comes up during the process. Led by Tamara Stanfill, wine expert and well-being guide, great effort is put into creating a space where participants from all backgrounds and gender identities feel honored, heard, and safe in exploring mindfulness.

Set against the backdrop of working vineyards, the Mayacamas Mountains, and the charming storybook architecture of Harvest Inn, the retreat setting is perfect for self-care, relaxation, and connection to nature with towering redwoods and resident hummingbirds helping to hold space. Gourmet snacks and lunch are served from Harvest Table, the resort’s well-reviewed restaurant, and the day is capped off with a mindfulness wine tasting experience where guests are invited to try local wines with all of their senses while receiving guidance from industry experts. Put simply, the daylong retreat is magic and you’ll leave wanting to attend again and again.

Pick The Perfect Harvest Inn Room To Unwind

While the Feed Your Soul Wellness Retreat is reason enough to visit Harvest Inn, building a stay into the experience will deepen your level of relaxation. Harvest Inn is set on eight beautiful acres with plenty of space to explore by foot, as well as many amenities to support a wellness getaway. All of the rooms on the property are perfect for proximity to the retreat, but choosing a Vineyard View Collection Spa room is the ultimate upgrade as it adds access to your own private hot tub to relax and unwind under the stars (and against a backdrop of vineyards and the Mayacamas Mountains). Many of the rooms on the property, including the spa rooms, feature brick fireplaces for a touch of warmth and romance. And, some rooms are pet friendly if bringing your furry companion is key to your wellness experience.

Enjoy Meals At Harvest Table

California’s Napa Valley is known for its restaurants, so it is a true compliment to Harvest Table that guests don’t have to leave the property to experience fine dining with excellent food and service. Chef Jeff Libunao genuinely enjoys preparing food for people with all dietary needs and is an expert at making vegetarian cuisine delicious and desirable instead of what’s leftover on the menu. In fact, if you love mushrooms, you won’t even miss the meat with what Libunao is able to prepare—although there are still plenty of savory meat dishes on the menu, as well.

The restaurant sources high-quality ingredients locally and often organically which results in incredibly fresh and seasonal offerings. Diners can choose to eat by the warmth of a roaring fire in colder months or al fresco overlooking the property on the terrace when the weather (or the space heater) allows. Harvest Table is everything you expect from upscale California cuisine—it’s inventive, fresh, and feels equal parts delicious and nourishing.

Soak In Everything Harvest Inn Has To Offer For Wellness

Once you’re well rested and well fed, you’ll be ready to enjoy everything else Harvest Inn has to offer when it comes to wellness. From two swimming pools heated year round to a meditative koi pond and plenty of room to walk among the vines and redwoods, relaxation is easy to achieve at this property. Saturday mornings also include complimentary yoga and meditation for hotel guests on the picturesque Vin Rose Lawn.

And, what wellness getaway would be complete without a spa treatment? Harvest Inn’s spa offerings include three treatment rooms on property as well as a partnership with the highly-rated Health Spa Napa Valley in St. Helena for all of your massage and pampering needs. From the Daylong Feed Your Soul Wellness Retreat to the spacious rooms, delicious food, and endless opportunities to relax, Harvest Inn is a one-stop destination for wellness travel.
