    While the Bernardus is a lovely place to stay, it is not anywhere near Napa Valley. The heart of Napa is approximately 1.5 hours north of San Franciso. Carmel Valley, where the Bernardus is located, is approximately 2.5 hours south of San Francisco. How did the Bernardus end up in an article on the top places to stay in Napa!!!!
