Tucked into a hidden canyon in California’s Napa Valley, this unique resort provides a “bungalow in the woods” experience that combines luxury accommodations and sophisticated design with an intimate, authentic connection to the natural surroundings, making the site itself the resort’s most important amenity. Set upon 157 heavily-wooded acres, the resort structures are clustered on 23 central acres, with the rest left undeveloped except for hiking trails. The resort treads lightly on the land – every design decision was made to maximize guests’ and owners’ connection to the surroundings, while minimizing their impact upon the site. Crushed granite pathways, individual bungalows clustered around outdoor living spaces, amenities housed in small-scale, indoor-outdoor buildings, guest cottages set upon pilings to literally float above the land – all add up to grown-up camping at its most luxurious.

“SB Architects approached this project with such a strong overall design vision, they turned our challenges into immense opportunities.”

Mark Harmon Managing Partner, Auberge Resorts
