Step back in time to the 1880s. Imagine a bustling settlement with a stagecoach stop, Maxwell Hotel and Livery, Rice & Millerís Blacksmith Shop, Tiptonís Butcher Shop, three saloons, a mercantile, a Grange Hall, the Corral de Piedra Schoolhouse, the Steele Brothersí cheese factory and slaughterhouse and several homes spread throughout the property. At the turn of the century a post office and railroad were added. Truly, the townspeople took pride in their growing community here in Edna Valley.

Rates and Reservations

The Suite Edna Guest House farmhouse and DeSolina Cottage vacation rentals are exclusive retreats, available to reserve for you and your guests during your stay. They are the only properties of their kind in Edna Valley, and the only accommodations on the Old Edna Townsite premises. Both are very private, rural and relaxing retreats. You and your guests may reserve one or both rentals: the entire three suite, one bath farmhouse or studio cottage. Wine and food are available at the Sextant Wines tasting room in the historic Old Edna building located at the front of the property. Larger parties of guests must be pre-approves as extra charges may apply.

Children must be supervised at all times. Access to other parts of the townsite must be approved before exploring.

The Suite Edna Guest House is available for $300 (weekdays), $395 (weekends) per night. DeSolina House is available for $185 (weekdays), $225 (weekends) per night. Rates vary according to group size and dates selected. A two-night minimum stay is required. In some cases we will discount a third weekend night. Weekly and monthly rates are available. Please see the terms below for more details about your reservation.

Reservations are available on a first come, first served basis. In most cases we book at least a month in advance (sometimes even a year).
