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

If you are looking for the perfect place to unwind in the wine country look no further. Hosts Joel and Jim have crafted a tasteful and luxurious homage to European hospitality with a focus on the little details that make staying here so special. Service, scrumptious brunches and a mellow vibe make it difficult to leave this refuge from the... More

My fiancee and I stayed for 2 nights at Chanric last week and I can't speak highly enough about it. We've stayed in some fine places but this will live long in the memory . First impressions are that it is just a house on a main road and it doesn't strike you as being magical. But when you park... More

What can I say about this incredible hotel that hasn't been said previously?! We just returned from a 4 night stay at this gorgeous property. First of all, the inn has been completely renovated. Charming from the outside and inside modern and stunning. Every single space has been completely and thoughtfully decorated from the hall table set with coffee every... More

My husband and I have been coming to Napa for over 20+ years, we've stayed in luxury hotels, moderate hotels, and plenty of B&B's and we've also rented homes. The Chanric Inn is the absolute best place in Napa/Sonoma to stay! I more than highly recommend this charming Inn to anyone seeking a relaxing, pampering, tastebud indulgence stay! Our hosts,...

So happy you enjoyed your stay! It was a pleasure to have you here, to surprise your family and friends with a new inspired brunch every morning and make you feel relaxed after long days of tastings touring our beautiful valley. It has been a wonderful week, you filled the house with happiness! Thanks! Joel & Jim More

Nice property in Calistoga. Close by to many wineries. 15 minute drive from St. Helena. Constantly flowing champagne. Joel (one of the innkeepers) is very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely go back.

I highly recommend this little charming elegant place. The French owners are very careful and each detail is perfect. The only problem is that the rooms are a little small and boxy and you can hear the noise from the people next door. The pool is small but just perfect and breakfast is to dream of. Worth trying.

This a wonderful B&B in Calistoga. The breakfast's were outstanding. Joel was a wonderful, accommodating host. The rooms are small but well appointed. This is a remarkably clean B & B. The grounds are beautifully maintained with many inviting areas to sit and relax. We were sorry to leave.

We stayed two nights and it was over 1000 bucks with tax and then they charged our credit card twice. And they didn't make it easy to get refund. Nice enough place but the room was small for the price, the decor was too designery for our taste. And our first morning there they burned up something in the kitchen... More

Mrs. Maggie, some precision: 1) Not true: we haven't charged twice your CC, our processor Central Payment did and has refunded, we have forwarded you their email with clarification!! 2) We are not microwaving our meals, cooking sometimes is..surprising...sorry our smoke detectors are running well! 18'? Exaggerated!! 3) Need I say more? Matter of taste and Color..... More

Can't begin to describe our stay. I'll get the negative out of the way first! We didn't really want to leave the Inn to make our winery tours! It is that special. The Chanric Inn is truly a treat for a 5 senses. Beautiful gardens and eclectic décor. Soft music, nature, water features. The gardens with scents of citrus, herbs... More
