Poetry Inn Napa Valley unveils its new look

(November 23, 2021; Yountville, Calif.)—Cliff Lede, proprietor of Poetry Inn Napa Valley, is pleased to announce that the interior aesthetic of the exclusive five-suite wine country sanctuary has been reimagined by the creative minds of St. Helena-based Erin Martin Design. The interior design refresh was completed alongside updates to the exterior landscape surrounding the serene and secluded property in the Stags Leap District, including the creation of a private hiking trail that leads guests from the Inn to the top of the ridgeline above.

Erin Martin and her team worked with a mélange of textures and natural materials in order to create a stimulating and modern, yet comfortable, contrast to Poetry Inn’s timeless Napa elegance. Guests will discover accents of greenery, decorative surprises, and unique art in each suite— multiple visits are warranted to explore all five.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted at the newest addition to the Inn, the Hemingway Bar, with a glass of wine from the proprietor’s Cliff Lede Vineyards or FEL Wines labels. The welcome experience continues in the central lounge which beckons guests to inspect antique typewriters and relax on an oversized sofa beneath the frame of a wooden canoe, which are just some of the eye-catching design elements introduced by Martin.

Each of the Inn’s five spacious suites, which are themed after famous poets such as Emily Dickinson and Robert Frost, were further imbued with a unique nod to their respective namesake poets through decorative artwork by artist Michael Duté who was invited to use Poetry Inn’s walls as his canvas. For example, the Robert Louis Stevenson suite’s walls are adorned with stanzas from “My Shadow,” and the Robert Frost suite features a mural of the woods from “The Road not Taken,” bringing the poems to life and adding a personal touch to each suite.

Poetry Inn Napa Valley is available for year-round nightly bookings as well as whole-property rentals. Interested parties are encouraged to contact the Inn’s ambassadors by email, visitus@poetryinn.com, or by calling the property directly at (707) 944-0646.
