The Watermark at napa valley

Having it all

Grab a glass of pinot at the wine bar before settling into a screening at our movie theater. Learn something new in a Watermark University educational symposium or curl up with a good book in our library. Residents enjoy flower arranging, weekly art and wine classes, walking club, book clubs, our documentary film series, and evenings at our comedy club.

The Watermark at Napa Valley presents expansive outdoor spaces that serve as a private respite for residents, perfect for quiet reading and reflection, or games and recreation. And in this temperate northern California climate, residents are eager to get outside: Our heated courtyard features a deck for yoga and Pilates, while a grassy knoll beckons, for tai chi.

Prefer a little friendly competition? Give our bocce and pickleball courts a try, practice your golf stroke on our putting green, or putter in the organic garden. And don’t forget your furry friends, because pets are welcome, too.n


Our signature offerings feature activities and programs squarely rooted in the seven dimensions of wellness—spiritual, emotional, vocational, physical, social, environmental, and intellectual. From gardening to guitar lessons, meditation to music theory, it’s all here. And there are Watermark University programs available to residents in all care levels, and access to online memory programs is available through Stanford University.

local excursions

The area is ripe for exploration, and our Extraordinary Outings make nearby towns like Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga easy to access. Residents can enjoy hot air balloon rides, Calistoga mud baths and warm springs, and exclusive winemaker dinners.


This immersive virtual reality program transports residents into unique and exciting three-dimensional experiences that feel 100 percent real. From exploring the Apollo 11 moon landing to an African safari, it will take your breath away, and not only that– it helps keep residents minds active and engaged, and it’s a lot of fun, too.

Wine culture

The Watermark Wine Club

Living in one of the world’s wine capitals, it’s easy to sip and savor here. Our personal shopper can track down a special vintage for you, make recommendations, even suggest pairings, arrange special dinners at vineyards nearby. And when you become a member of the Watermark at Napa Wine Club, you’ll enjoy specially selected wines quarterly or monthly from our partner wineries.

A highlight is the Napa Valley Vine Trail, which runs right across the street, with access points just two blocks away. Currently a 12.5 mile stretch that runs alongside scenic amazing vineyards, rivers, and forests in Napa, The Napa Valley Vine Trail, when finished, will cover 48 miles from Calistoga to the Ferry Building in San Francisco.
