“I always had this idea in the back of my head about owning a Bed and Breakfast someday”, says Kevin, “so as we were considering how to rebalance our current lifestyle, we talked it over and decided to look further. We came upon Hennessey House while researching B&B’s in Napa and the rest is history.”
Kevin and Lorri live with their family offsite just a short distance away from the inn. A resident innkeeper occupies an apartment on the premises. “Our kids are very energetic,” says Kevin, “and they need their own space to run around”.
Given where they came from, Kevin and Lorri have a first hand understanding of their guest’s busy and stressful lifestyles, and have crafted a Bed and Breakfast experience designed to let guests get away and truly relax. Hennessey House is decorated in an elegant old world style, with discretely placed modern amenities such as high-speed wifi access throughout the property. Several rooms have fireplaces, clawfoot tubs, or jaccuzzi tubs.
Guests enjoy an afternoon tea service with home baked treats, an evening wine and cheese service, as well a full sitdown breakfast. “Almost everything is made here”, says Lorri, “Breakfast is prepared from scratch everyday. We make our own granola, and bake fresh muffins daily”.
