“Our hiking trails are lovely at any hour of the day, however, they are most pristine and peaceful early in the morning. People can't believe how quiet it can be. Totaling four and a half miles throughout the property, the scenic hiking trails wind through the woods and rise to heights of more than 600 feet. Guests find the trail's highest elevations with their bird's-eye vistas most impressive, but it's a beautiful setting no matter what part of it you're on. There are hidden treasures everywhere if you take the time to walk slowly and observe.”

“At Meadowood, we play the grown-up version of the infamous backyard game. Croquet is the perfect equilizer between players of widely differing skills. In fact, croquet is a game of strategy, not unlike chess, which offers the thinking player the true advantage. So be sure to pack your whites (in the Wimbledon tradition, of course!) and join us. I’ll even teach you the official croquet pose for photos. You’ll be official!”

“Just minutes from Meadowood in the city of St. Helena, The Culinary Institure of America (CIA) is a must-stop spot for food and wine enthusiasts. The world-renowned college offers cooking classes and boot camps, campus tours and chef demonstrations. The CIA also has a fun Tasting Bar, where you can sample charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, and super-premium olive oils. After you visit the CIA, be sure to check out the shops and galleries along Main Street.”
