We had massages, facials, and mud baths, and they were relaxing, good, and interesting in that order. Very comfortable rooms, bikes, and bocce ball. Convenient to downtown.

The Golden Haven is pure Calistoga - old but well maintained. The mud bath was an interesting experience and one I think I will enjoy more the second time around. The first time you try this, you have to get used to the smell (sulfur and peat moss), the heat of the mud (very hot) and the thickness (you have... More

A truly unique experience. My girlfriend and I decided to do a mud bath and called this place up. Had no idea what to expect and it was pretty wild bathing in mud. We got a package deal that included a massage and resting period -- was a very relaxing 2.5 hour experience. If you go during the week and... More

My Daughter and I visited Golden Haven for the first time on a Friends recommendation. We had the deluxe treatment which was the mud baths, jacuzzi, mini facial, body wrap, and a one hour massage. The mud baths were a new experience for both of usI It takes a Spa experience to a new level that everyone should try. The... More

Since the 1860's, people have been coming to Calistoga for the mud baths. The town sits on a natural hot mineral spring with lots of volcanic ash available to make the mud. We tried Golden Haven, in spite of mixed reviews, because the location was convenient. The web site pictures are a bit misleading. The motel/spa was clean but don't... More

For anyone expecting either a unique spa treatment or a special experience with that someone special in your life: run, don't walk away. The facilities were simply gross; it felt mostly like a motel from the 1970s, run by toothless and tattooed people who can't spell mud, let alone ensure it is sanitary or used properly. The "mineral hot springs"... More

First off, if you are looking to finally check the whole "mud bath" experience off your bucket list, then this is the place to do it. The staff is professional, the facilities are in good shape, and the entire experience was a perfect beginning to my wife and I's recent trip to Wine Country. The price for the experience of...

After business meetings and long flights from the east coast, decided to try the Golden Haven spa and the mud bath and mineral tub experience. What a pleasant surprise! The mud was hot, but definitely therapeutic. I could see where some would be claustrophobic, but they just need to let the attendent know if they become uncomfortable. The experience of... More

Just a wonderful time. Our Attendant was Maria and she treated us to a terrific spa visit. We did mud bath with facial, shower, whirlpool and wrap. Delightful, relaxing experience. Unrushed. Very attentive. Just a perfect experience.
