During my trip across California, I had the great idea to stop at the Chanric Inn for two nights. Joel welcomed me with a glass of champagne which marked the start of a dream-like holiday. This place is special. It really felt like home. A soft blanket over my feet, warm in front of a designed fireplace, sipping the best... More

A very special place. Incredible design taste and a fantastic, romantic stay. We loved Joel, the Inn keeper and owner -- a chef with incredible design taste. His attention to detail made our stay one to remember. We found beautiful art in every corner of this space. My friend and I liked to imagine this was our home and we... More

My wife and I made our first visit to Napa Valley for our 30th wedding anniversary. At check-in Joel offered us a glass of champagne which was the perfect start to a wonderful week. The brunch each morning was fabulous. Fresh juices, bread, a hot dish and always topped off with dessert! The rooms were very tastefully decorated and we... More

Beautiful artwork all over the property. The decor is upscale modern, inside of a charming Victorian. Our room was small but incredibly relaxing, with a window looking out at the garden and pool (towards the back). I wish I had brought my swimsuit so I could have used the hot tub! Surprised to see previous comments about noise; this was... More

Thank you so much for the great review! We are happy you enjoyed our beautiful house and appreciated the services. Effectively it has been a challenge for us to offer a "homey" and upscale atmosphere at the same time. We have had a lot of pleasure in selecting every object, piece of art or furniture to create this atmosphere taking... More

Quite charming, beautiful decor, pool area needs help, however VERY NOISY!!! We came to enjoy, relax, taste some delightful wine and food, and yes SLEEP IN.

My wife I had been travelling for 4 weeks in the US and had stayed in many different places including hotels, apartments and b & bs, to say that this property was the best is complete understatement. We are seasoned travellers and know what we want and the Chanric ticked every box. The location is superb, the rooms beautifully decorated,... More

My husband and I had a nice one night stay. The Inn is impeccably designed with no detail overlooked. Incredible taste and service. It was a great stay for us. This was our first bed & breakfast experience.

Background: we are DINKs and like to indulge when we travel. The Chanric Inn did not disappoint! This is a modern, chic B&B with interesting art and well-placed pieces throughout.

This place was more than we normally pay for a B&B, but it was the only accommodations we could find in Calistoga/St. Helena area that would rent only a single night, and a Friday night at that. At least during peak season, their rates are about what you'd pay for a high end big city hotel, but once we checked... More
