Time-honored traditions are created when we fall in love and our families are born and raised. But where does one find a Thanksgiving getaway special enough to earn a place in our hearts and traditions? Where can you find a place that is surpassingly beautiful, hopelessly romantic and nostalgically heartwarming?

Settled within California’s stunning Napa Valley, on a private estate surrounded by hillsides and vineyards, the rustic yet luxurious Meadowood Napa Valley is such a place. Golf, play tennis or try your hand at croquet. Swim, hike or visit the spa for a little extra pampering. The resident sommeliers are happy to arrange visits to the legendary wineries just a stone’s throw away, or for those looking to slow things down a little, you can mix and mingle the afternoon away with an onsite wine reception. Families will appreciate the casual dining venue, while food enthusiasts may prefer the Michelin Three-Star dining experience offered by Chef Christopher Kostow in The Restaurant at Meadowood.

Three-night Thanksgiving escapes to Meadowood for couples or families include lodging in spacious, thoughtfully appointed guest rooms with private decks and fireplaces as well as Thanksgiving dinner served familystyle in front of a roaring fire. Children will love the bustle of activity on Saturday, which includes the arrival of the holiday tree by horse-drawn carriage, festive music, hay rides, sweet treats and the exuberant company of other families.
