Stanly Ranch
Offering Guests and Locals A Home Away From Home


Published On: May 11, 2023

Designed to exist both as a destination worth traveling to and as a local gathering hub, Stanly Ranch is more than just another hotel in Napa. The 135-room resort owned and operated by Auberge Resorts Collection opened last spring with a community-driven mission across their specialty programming, events, and experiences—and this spring, they’re adding to their activity line-up.

In March, Stanly Ranch launched its newest offering as a casual culinary concept, The Window. Stanly Ranch will host locals and hotel guests every Saturday through harvest season in their village center for live music and a grab-and-go window-style dining venue featuring weekly specials from Mexican-style street corn to classic Nashville fried chicken.

Another culinary happening is Stanly Ranch’s Grange Harvest Dinner Series, four unique multi-course dining experiences spread over the warmer months and hosted at the Grange, their onsite chef’s garden. Though the themes differ, from mustard (March 26) to edible flowers (May 21) to basil (August 6) and winter squash (November 5), the concept remains the same: to “honor the infinite connection between the land, ingredients, makers, and farmers by focusing on a single, exceptional seasonal ingredient.”

While the aforementioned are tailored dining experiences, Stanly Ranch’s signature restaurant, Bear, hosts more relaxed happenings year-round. This includes Locals Nights at Bear, where weekly specials are on rotation explicitly for locals, ranging from discounted martinis to a burger and beer combination or one-dollar oysters; the goal is to make Bear a local’s “go-to.”

Outside of food and beverage, Halehouse is Stanly Ranch’s all-encompassing wellness center, fostering a community in itself. The Halehouse Unlimited monthly membership is available to locals for $850 per month, which includes the use of all the spa and fitness facilities, including scheduled movement classes from yoga to pilates, one complimentary personal training session, and a 60-minute massage per month as well as access to the adults-only pool and hot tub seven days a week.

Though these offers are seasonal, Stanly Ranch offers a “Plan Ahead and Save” package, which doesn’t expire—so guests can save 30 percent on bookings year-round if they confirm a pre-paid booking at least ten days in advance. When they book, they’ll gain access to the 712-acre property’s year-round offerings, including two swimming pools, fireplace nooks where conversation among guests is encouraged, and luxury cottage rooms that provide the perfect retreat after a day of mingling with fellow travelers. Other unique experiences, such as artisanal hat making, immersive wine classes, scenic bike rides, falconry presentations, and gardening routines, occur throughout the year. And that’s just scratching the surface—no matter the season, whether a local or out-of-towner, Stanly Ranch welcomes guests to feel at home through their programming, property layout, and thoughtful facilities.
