Staying at The Chanric Inn was a wonderful delight. Jim and Joel have all around superb taste and a clear passion for doing everything exceptionally well. The brunch, the champagne, the design, the accommodations and the hosts were perfection! We hope to return again soon. Thank you for making our weekend in Calistoga so flawless!

I am sure you can find hotels in Calistoga with larger rooms, larger pools, etc... But I am not sure you can find anywhere a place with more sincere generosity in everything that is provided to guests. Everything is subtle in this place, from the decor to the food, with an amazing attention to details. The hosts pre-book tables at... More

Beware-- I accidentally booked this property via hotels.com. I canceled the reservation 8 minutes later and spoke directly with the hotel staff, but was nevertheless charged 10% cancellation fee. Bad business practices.

This is not a review of a guest that has stayed at the Inn, but the "story" of someone that has booked "accidentally" a room not on our web site reservation system, but on Hotels.com. He is not the first and not the last to try to skip the cancellation policies doing pressure with "bad reviews" on Internet. we don't... More

Calling the Chantric a B & B is misleading, since it should be classified as a tip top Relais. Kinda like calling a Sacher Torte a little chocolate cake. Joel & staff make the multilevel Chantric a Relais & Chateau-like resort right in Calistoga. It's a hidden jewel of a place with quaint rooms, state of the art baths, and... More

The Chanric Inn is a lovely 6 bedroom bed and breakfast located just north of Saint Helena in Calistoga. The location is very convenient to many wineries, restaurants and historical sites. The property has been recently completely updated. It is modern, comfortable and relaxing. The grounds are beautiful and include a vegetable garden, a fire pit with fountain, patios, balconies...

We just returned from celebrating our 25th Anniversary and could not have picked a better place! Everything was absolutely amazing. The level of hospitality was beyond superb. We were welcomed with champagne and gourmet chocolates…the food Joel prepared was beyond superb (if he opened for dinner I think 1/2 the restaurants in town would close!).

After staying for 5 nights with a group of friends, all I can say about this place is "Wow"!! The level of hospitality and service that were offered are unparalleled.
