US: Stonehouse Capital has purchased the 26-room Rancho Caymus Inn and has partnered with Life House for management.
The boutique hotel was originally built by Mary Tilden Morton of the Morton Salt family, and later restored by the seller who preserved many original details. These include stained-glass windows, mosaics, 19th century barn-wood beams, and more.
Rooms feature bi-levels, with the living area on the lower floor and bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Guest rooms surround a courtyard which hosts a complimentary wine hour each night for guests.
Jeff Broaden, founder and CEO of Stonehouse Capital, said: “We are thrilled to add this incredibly unique boutique hotel to our portfolio. Napa Valley is a wonderful community filled with passionate creators and artists; one of the more inspiring destinations anywhere. We are excited to become the new stewards of this property and thrilled to be surrounded by such wonderful neighbours in Rutherford and the broader wine country.”
“We are happy to announce our partnership with Life House for management,” he added. “We chose them for their innovative platform, creative edge, shared enthusiasm for Napa and this asset, and commitment to elevating the experience of our guests in this special destination.”
Rami Zeidan, founder and CEO of Life House, said: “We are ecstatic to be part of the treasured Rancho Caymus Inn in the heart of Napa Valley. We are grateful to work with Stonehouse Capital and very much appreciate their forward-thinking approach that will bring a wonderfully enhanced and authentic guest experience and optimal profitability through our management platform.”
Life House has a growing portfolio of boutique and luxury hotels, with 50 projects open or under development across the US and Mexico.
