Dennis and Marge is such a welcoming couple at the Bear Flag Inn. Breakfast each morning was yummy and PLENTIFUL served in a sunny dining room. Our room was immaculate and the bed was very comfy. The rainfall shower was wonderful. A beautiful setting. Every afternoon wine and snacks were offered. We only took advantage of that the day we... More

Cozy country inn run by Dennis & Marge. Very friendly and helpful about the area and history. Inn is set back from the busy road so it is quiet. Close to town, hot springs and wineries. Room was large in size, bed comfortable and the bathroom functional. Only suggestions would be to air out the room or use an air... More

Dennis and his wife do a fine job at the Bear Flag. He is friendly and welcoming and they serve a fantastic, hot and varied breakfast in a sunny dining room. The Inn is a house and one outbuilding with a pool, about a mile outside Calistoga. The location is quiet and the yard has grape vines, fig, persimmon and... More

Immaculately clean: check; generous size room: check; enough electrical outlets to charge devices: check; comfy bed and pillows; check; shelf space in bath for toiletries: check; racks for luggage:check. These are the details that can detract from my experience, but here they were all covered. Excellent, not overly fussy breakfast (GREAT fresh fruit), and hosts that are only too happy... More

Such a fantastic relaxing place. We stayed for a few nights whilst visiting Calistoga and doing some wine tasting. Dennis and Margerie couldn't have been more welcoming. Excellent hosts, excellent service and breakfasts. I wish we could have stayed longer!

What a delight. My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights recently, while attending an event at one of the local wineries. I read some "not so positive" reviews before booking and am quite happy I ignored the few negatives I did see. First, you are going to Napa Valley to taste wine; if you are spending enough time at a... More

My son and I selected Bear Flag as the home base of a few days of cycling around Napa and Sonoma, and it was terrific. Nice breakfasts, quiet at night, close to town but yet far enough from the highway to not get traffic noise, and great hosts. A nice place to just hang after a long ride with a... More

When we arrived at the Bear Flag Inn, May 20th, we were greeted by Dennis and Marjorie, the hosts of Bear Flag Inn...such nice, friendly people...welcoming and helpful to us as we planned places to visit in the Calistoga area. The Bear Flag Inn is on a lovely, quiet piece of property with a pretty vineyard and rich history. We... More

My husband and I stayed here for our first anniversary. We stayed one night, and we were 100% treated like family. The house is full of history and the grounds are rustic and lovely. The chickens roam about happily with the cats; the dogs are sweet and friendly, but spend most of their time out of the house. Just after... More
