I rented the bungalow for a relaxing week in July. Hot weather, cool space, friendly hosts--what more you could want?! I got almost exclusive use of the Inn's pool and read three books, walked to dinner downtown and generally lived a life of luxury, at a very affordable price.

Excellent B&B with charming bungalows..... One block off Lincoln Ave...close to restaurants, grocery market, spas, and a short (walking) mile away from Lava Vine Winery/Tasting Room. Chien Blanc is definitely one of Calistoga's best kept secrets!

We stayed one night at one of the bungalows. It was clean and walking distance to the shopping district. That is the only thing nice thing I can say. We had an in law unit, which was below one of the main houses. We knew that there would be other guests in main house, but we were not told that... More

We were 8 noisy girls from Florida celebrating a girl's weekend in Napa. We were so happy to find the Chien Blanc Bungalows!!!!! These terrific little bungalows were perfect for us. We booked all three and also got use of the game room. The bungalows were clean, comfy and well stocked. We were so happy to be able to spend... More

Great escape! All you could need including private garden with fountain, shade, kitchen and AC. Walking distance to spa, fresh groceries, wine and restaurants. Exactly what we needed after white water rafting to relax!

We were looking for a less trendy and more interesting place to enjoy wine tasting in the Napa Valley and Calistoga and the Chenin Blanc cottages fit the bill. This place is not for those looking to stay at a more generic locale like the Marriott in Napa but was great for us. Clean and cozy, funky and fun.

There is no smoking inside but there are nice tables and seating around the grounds to have a smoke. It is more like a vacation rental and private no people snooping around. If you rent all three of these units, it is private and you have the whole place including the common room that is really cool, for late night... More

I've actually stayed at this property at least 4 times over the past 8 years or so. Most recently went to Calistoga with two other moms of elementary age children, well deserving of a break. We all three loved the apartment (Chinon bungalow) and it's location - easily walkable to the main drag, spas, restaurants and shopping in the little... More

The Napa Valley's become so much for the privileged anymore ($30 wine tastings the norm), that a comfortable, spacious place for you and maybe your dog for less than a ransom is worthy. Much still in the 1950s, but with updated touches. Responsive owners that treat you like a guest, not an income stream on a spreadsheet, nor, like some... More

I was tasked with organizing a collage roommate reunion for the 5 of us and our wives. I had the challenge of balancing different expectations of comfort and budgets and this fit the bill perfectly. We took over the entire bungalow court plus the cottage at the Chelsea Inn next door. The bungalows were clean, well appointed and quite charming.... More
