HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT PROPERTY: 1881 marked the Grand Opening of Jackson’s Napa Soda Springs Resort and was called “the greatest social event ever held north of San Francisco.” Socially-prominent families of the time made the journey by train, boat and horse-drawn carriage to enjoy the resort’s mountain air and healing waters. They were astounded by its extraordinary views, and relaxed in its idyllic Belle Epoch environment complete with the landmark Rotunda Hotel, the regally columned Belleview Residence and other classic buildings that rivaled the great spa architecture of Europe. Romantic stone ruins of the Resort and Spa’s glory days remain, inviting restoration and adaptive re-use. The extraordinary and varied topography of Napa Soda Springs includes numerous naturally landscaped water features along the 1.5 mile corridor of Soda Creek flowing through the property; a stunning, seasonal 80 foot waterfall; the romantic vistas of Poppy Hill; a multitude of free flowing springs delivering pure to naturally effervescent waters historically prized and bottled for their taste and health-giving properties; the breath-taking magma rock-strewn slope of Babylon Plane; and the peaceful rock-fenced Big Meadow. The views from the property are truly spectacular in range and beauty, encompassing the entire Napa Valley, and reaching as far as the skyline of San Francisco to the South, Mt Tamalpais to the West, and Mt. St. Helena and the magnificent Mayacamas Mountains to the North.
Available for the first time in over 40 years, the celebrated Napa Soda Springs, one of the largest continuous parcels of land in all of Napa Valley, represents a rare and exciting ownership opportunity. This 855+ acre property played a significant role in the rich history of California and the Valley, as it was once home to the preeminent 19th Century resort and spa of the Western United States, boasting unparalleled views of the region, from San Francisco Bay to the northern peak of Mt. St. Helena and beyond. Truly unique and awe-inspiring, Napa Soda Springs offers a compelling opportunity to own a piece of this history with a multitude of future possibilities.
