Just spent 4 nights at the Inn and it was a great experience. Innkeepers Joel & Jim were very friendly, helpful, and attentive; the Inn is spotless; the rooms cozy and lovely. Everything was of very high quality, and the breakfast's were delicious! We felt very comfortable there. Will definitely go back

Thanks a lot for the so kind words. The great thing of low season is that we have enough time to dedicate to each guest and it has been a real pleasure for us to pamper you! We are happy you appreciated our brunches; the exciting challenge will be to surprise you next time! Cheers! Joel More

We stayed one night in Chanric on a whim. We were well looked after by the owner who made the guests a four course breakfast in the morning. Beds were comfy and it was close to downtown Calistoga. Would definitely recommend for a couple's weekend break.

Stayed here sadly only for one night at the end of August. Absolutely wonderful experience and a beautiful property.

Room was cozy and high end although lacking in a TV, which is fine given the surroundings. Finishes in the bathroom and guest suite were all very high end and looked like they had been redone recently (11/22/13). Service was impeccable - nothing better than the owner of the B&B truly behave as a best friend hosting you would -... More

My husband and I have stayed twice at the Chanric Inn in the past year and I can't believe it's taken me so long to write a glowing review!

We stayed at the Chanric Inn for two nights and had a wonderful time. We are far from Napa experts but our two trips have convinced us that the smaller towns on the edges of the valley seem to be what everyone pictures when they imagine Napa.

The Chanric Inn is a wonderful modern B&B that welcomes you with open arms. He stayed there on or honeymoon and were immensely pleased with our room, the service, and the atmosphere. Not to mention the champaign and a five star french style breakfast. We highly recommend this lovely B&B.
