There is something special about the history of the Napa Valley, and when you visit, Rancho Caymus wants you to experience some of that history. The Inn takes its name from land awarded in 1836 by General Mariano Vallejo to pioneer George C. Yount, Napas first land grant. A sprawling hacienda named Caymus Rancho was built on the site and opened its doors to all those who visited the valley. The current Rancho Caymus was built in 1984 by local artist and entrepreneur Mary Lee Tildon. Her design sought to recapture the spirit of the original hacienda. In 1991, the winemaking Komes family purchased the inn. The family has successfully enhanced the rustic elegance of the property, while keeping its history at the forefront of the design. Each room is named for an early Napa Valley adventurer, and youll find their stories, that go back to the early 1800s, in every room. Names such as Black Bart, Lillie Hitchcock Coit, and Robert Lewis Stevenson, as well as members of Russian nobility, saloonkeepers, stagecoach drivers and even a famous San Francisco courtesan intertwine with the warm, homelike surroundings of the inns decor.
