About Sandra and Jackson Carr

We are a retired couple who have lived in St. Helena for over 30 years. If we are not traveling in the summer you will catch us fly fishing on Rock Creek in Montana.

Beautiful property well suited for the area

  • 5 of 5

This homey and comfortable cottage is beautifully suited for the area. We came to the Napa Valley for my brother's wedding. My husband, 2 teenagers, and I appreciated the space, and choose this property over a hotel room where many of the wedding party and guests were staying for which we would have paid the same price per night. The house and yard are kept up so nicely. We particularly loved the backyard spaces. The property is tucked into a quiet neighborhood, with only a short, convenient walk to the quaint downtown of St. Helena. We would stay here again should the occasion present itself, and highly recommend this property to others!

Beautiful St. Helena Home

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more beautiful, well appointed, perfectly sized St. Helena home for our recent long weekend in the Napa Valley. The home is perfectly located on a quiet street just blocks from downtown St. Helena. The home has everything needed for a relaxing getaway. The kitchen is well appointed, beds are comfortable, many outdoor seating options, and well sized for 4 guests. Thank you and we look forward to a repeat visit in the future.

Lovely and convenient - the photos don't do the home justice

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at the St. Helena Cottage. It was charming, well-appointed with eclectic art (look out for the giant taxidermy rooster!) and included a very nicely stocked kitchen. A few blocks away is Goose & Gander, where we had a stellar meal.

The very large deposit requirement was a bit off-putting, which I expect is intended, to weed out potential high-risk renters. In any event, the entire deposit was promptly returned, even after we reported a broken dish.

I would strongly recommend the place and would stay there again.

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son, daughter-in-law and I stayed in this cottage for 3 nights. We walked into St. Helena each morning for coffee and used the various outdoor "rooms" every evening. Our only wish is that we had booked a longer stay! All needs have been anticipated, even having Amazon Prime on the TV so we could continue watching our series. The airconditioning is excellent, the kitchen fully operational and it is VERY quiet. We will definitely return!
