What a great place - a warm welcome from Nick and Gillian, comfortable rooms, fabulous breakfasts. We also enjoyed the welcome wine and home-made snacks - repeated each day of the stay. Highly recommended as a base for exploring Calistoga and the wider Napa valley wine region. Nick put together a package for us, included dining vouchers, scheduled wine tastings... More

Clean, beautiful furniture, unbeatable breakfasts (and cookies). The Spring room may have been missing a closet, but made up for it with its fantastic bathroom. The Craftsman style was excellently maintained. A few details were strange: The Howell room lacked a working lock on the door, and the only door connecting the Spring room to the rest of the house...

Our stay (three days) at The Craftsman Inn was just perfect. Although the owners have lived in CA for many years, they are originally from the UK and I think the Inn has a touch of English charm to it. Our hosts were lovely and very knowledgeable about the area (and more importantly where the best wineries are!). The food... More

One of the reasons for staying in Bed and Breakfasts like this is to experience the enthusiasm of the owners. Here you have a lovely old house that has been lovingly restored. But, unfortunately, for whatever reason, the owners have apparently stopped caring. The bones of the room were excellent but the pillows and the mattress should have been replaced... More

We went to The Craftsman Inn because a friend of mine suggested it. We immediately felt in love for it. The place is beautiful. Really, it is beautiful ! The rooms are cool and very peacefull. The breakfast is awesome and everything is so simple and easy. It is definitely a perfect place to stay. I would recomend it.

We stayed here for one night after spending 4 nights in San Francisco and booked the Diamond Room. It was absolutely heaven - after an afternoon wine tasting we relaxed in the lovely jacuzzi tub with a glass of wine and the gorgeous homemade cookies which were divine. The room was large and spacious and the bed one of the... More

The location is very good, you can walk to town. Rooms are very comfortable. Hospitality was wonderful. We enjoyed delicious breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. We purchased the cook book to see if we can try making the delicious scones we ate for breakfast ,

This is the best B & B ever. The breakfast is second to none. The best breakfasts ever. The family are so nice and so hospitable. Would recommend this to everyone. The area is also great and this place is so convenient to walk to downtown Calistoga. We took a hot air balloon ride and just had to walk a... More

The Craftsman Inn was a fabulous place to stay whilst visiting Calistoga and Napa Valley. The Inn itself is extremely striking and gorgeous. The Inside matches the outside with the rooms being very elegant and comfortable. The Breakfast was fantastic and meet all my expectations from reading reviews before booking the room. I think the highlight for me must be... More
