"Monte Vista" is the quintessential Wine Country living experience... views, privacy, vineyards, and a perfectly restored vintage 1895 farmhouse. The owners, who have developed an internationally acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon, have recently moved to an adjacent ranch. Now their former residence, which received the Napa Valley Award for historical preservation, and is in the US National Registry of Historic Places, is available to 3RD HOME members.
The farmhouse includes a living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms (each with bath), and outside porches.
The living quarters are furnished with antiques. A large spring-fed swimming pond fed by an artesian spring with its own terraces is a fabulous entertaining area (where the gazebo photo was taken).
Entrance to the farmhouse and pond is through its own dedicated electronically operated gate. During the Summer months, the pond is used for swimming and sun bathing. A stone root cellar is available for wine storage.
Explore the CONSTANT Estate Winery and vineyards with Fred Constant, Proprietor and taste our Diamond Mountain Vineyard wines.
Monte Vista offers views of the Palisades and Mount St. Helena, overlooking the Napa Valley and eighteen acres of vineyards.

Our hostess Mary Constant was lovely in every way and the cottage was charming. We did have some difficulty with the road up Diamond Mountain,but traveled it only once a day. The Napa Valley and all the towns in the surrounding areas were beautiful and very interesting shopping. Vegetation was lovely at the cottage and all the areas in the valley. Wonderful memories shared with my daughter and granddaughter. Lee Burson”
Perfect Napa experience
My wife and I stayed at this classic Napa farmhouse. The surrounding property is one of the most magical spots in the Napa Valley. Our host (Mary) was so kind and accommodating. We picked fresh fruit (with the owner's permission) for our morning walks. We even got a last minute wine tasting at the owner's home - an incredible experience. Another 3rdhome winner!! ”
My husband and I loved this property, even though we were only able to stay there for three days. There is a long winding road up to the house, but once you're there it is nothing short of perfect. Monte Vista is a charming, old, country cottage making it the perfect romantic getaway for couples, complete with a beautiful fireplace to curl up in front of. And the view was like something off of a postcard - rolling hills of the vineyards stretching into the distance, breathtaking. ”
We have just returned from our weeks stay at Monte Vista in Napa. Our hosts Freddy and Mary are darling people who both went above and beyond to make our stay fabulous. Which it was!! After a long drive from Los Angeles and a few “false alarms” we finally made it up Diamond Mountain and wow, what a Jewel. We were met by both Freddy and Mary at the farm house an adorable cottage nestled amongst the Vines. The house is filled with a history in every corner. Mary had everything in order including first class silky white linens and pillow top mattresses for our cozy beds. Freddy introduced us to his assistants ( his 2 adorable Portuguese Water Dogs) and we jumped into his land rover for a tour of the Vineyards which are nothing short of spectacular. We were given the history of the farmhouse which is quite extra ordinary and the sweetness behind Freddy’s reasons for purchasing all the antique pieces they cherish and keep inside. Each day we meditated by the pond and enjoyed the peace and quiet and absolutely gorgeous views of Diamond Mountain and the Valley below. We feasted on fabulous foods and drank amazing wine. The sunrise and the sun sets were remarkable. Acres and acres of Vineyards and space. What could be more perfect. Freddy assisted us with restaurant reservations and invited us on a tour of the main house which included a generous private tasting of their world renown wines. This was truly memorable and special. We were very fortunate to be able to purchase a case if his incredible winning Cabernet. Though sad to leave we know that we have met a special couple who have shared their passions and life’s work with us. Thanks again 3rd Home for another WINNER! ”
We enjoyed our stay in Napa at Monte Vista. The farmhouse was charming with amazing views across the Vineyards. The house was charmingly furnished and had beautiful views and light all day long. Freddie and Mary are delightful and so gracious to invite us for a visit to the main house and a tasting of their delicious Constant Wine. We used this as a base to explore Napa and Sonoma with days of wine tastings and exploring this beautiful valley. A great location tucked up the mountain. Our only disappointment was that the hot tub listed has not been working for years and the pool and bocci courts are at the main house through a locked gate and not really made accessible for guests. Perhaps those features should be removed from the listing..”
