NAPA, CA—The Carneros Inn, a luxury resort here, has been purchased by San Francisco, CA-based Flynn Properties, Inc..
The Carneros Inn, which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, features 86 private guest cottages and suites, nightly private luxury home rentals and the The Orchard Private Residence Club. Other features include an infinity-edge pool that overlooks the vineyards, lap pool, cabanas, Jacuzzi spa, children’s pool and a 2,800-sq.-ft. fitness center with a yoga and Pilates studio.
“We are thrilled to now include The Carneros Inn in our expanding collection of businesses,” stated Greg Flynn, founder, chairman and CEO of Flynn Properties.
According to Flynn Properties, whose properties include the luxury resort Esperanza in Los Cabos, Mexico, the acquisition represents the second luxury boutique hotel property in the company's portfolio.
As part of its initial phase of ownership, Flynn Properties plans to make significant enhancements to the property, including upgrades to the common areas, room amenities and restaurant offerings.
The PlumpJack Group, also based in San Francisco, CA, will manage the property.
“We are excited to further develop The Carneros Inn experience by working with an ownership group that is committed to taking the resort to a whole new level,” said Hilary Newsom, president of PlumpJack Group.
“We’ll continue to combine first-class luxury services and amenities with unpretentious hospitality to create a charming, comfortable and relaxing getaway that fully captures the vineyard experience, but we’ll enhance our offering with upgrades across the board," she added.
