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

Just recently completed a three-night stay at what has to be, without question, one of the premier places to stay in all of Napa Valley. The Chanric Inn and its owners truly have a gem of a Bed and Breakfast. My wife and I celebrated both a birthday and a 15-year wedding anniversary and the Chanric Inn truly helped make... More

Although my girlfriend and I were able to stay only one night at the Chanric Inn, it was a night to remember. Upon arriving at the Chanric after a long day of work, I quickly realized that the Inn was going to exceed my expectations. Admittedly, I am not someone who desires the “fancier” things in life. Often, places of... More

Just spent 3 nights at The Chanric Inn in Calistoga and had the most wonderful time. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Joel (one of the owners) and a glass of bubbly before being given a quick tour of the spectacular amenities and grounds.

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

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.

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).
