WHERE TO STAY

  • Vintage House in Yountville is super close to Lincoln Theater where many of the MVFF films will be screened. If you are going with a group, check out the “Villa at the Estate”, a 5-bedroom house with a private pool, hot tub and game room with pool table. Yes, Please!
  • Carneros Inn & Spa in Napa is a really special experience. Plus, I’ll do anything to position myself closer to the warm sugary donuts at their Boon Fly Cafe.
