The historic Ink House estate was originally known as Helios Ranch. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this Victorian-style property was first built in 1884 by Napa Valley pioneer Theron Ink as a single-family home. The Ink House later became a bed and breakfast.
The Castellucci family did an amazing job restoring this historic property after purchasing it in 2013. The Ink House pays homage to its history while featuring a sophisticated, modern twist. Each of the four guest rooms is inspired by the property’s history.
- The Theron Room tells the story of Theron Ink, the inn’s original owner. Design elements draw on an “independent and adventurous spirit with warm leathers and natural textures.”
- The Harriet Room is inspired by Theron’s wife. The room has feminine details with a deep green color palette.
- The Helios Room is named for the working ranch Theron Ink originally established. The room is “a perfect blend of old and new, showcasing the original agricultural with a private, north facing portico and a large cozy rug and four-poster bed that makes this room feel like one’s own private residence.
- The Elvis Room takes inspiration from Elvis Presley himself, who made the inn his home during the filming of “Wild in the Country” in 1960. With a mid-century Hollywood charm, the room features embellished walls with movie posters, black and white photographs and accents like Houndstooth pillows.
The inn’s signature gourmet European breakfast will surely start your day off well, with unique note entrees, freshly baked breads, and more. In the afternoons, enjoy wine and appetizers, and perhaps take part in casual tasting sessions that often occur at this wine country hub.
