Very nice interior but the location is a problem right in front of very busy intersection that never seems to quite down. Breakfasts are very good. Unfortunately not worth the price even with a Living Social + we paid for an upgrade putting the stay above over $200/nt.

My husband and I stayed at The Craftsman Inn a few days ago. We actually were guests at the same time as a previous reviewer, his wife, and son. The interim innkeepers, Connie and Carl, were very nice and always made sure we had everything we needed. Carl even contacted us the morning of our arrival to check on our... More

Thank for taking the time to give us a review. We do offer hot water for both tea and coffee and there is a French press always available as well so we are sorry that you missed that. We realize that we cannot meet everyone's personal expectations when it comes to style and this is a 1912 Craftsman house so... More

We had a great time staying at the Craftsman Inn a few days ago. The manager, Carl and his lovely wife, Connie were the most gracious hosts while the owners were away on a European vacation. We were treated each morning to a delicious, gourmet breakfast which was cooked fresh by Carl's wife. The room was nice, comfortable and clean... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, which was our first experience with a bed and breakfast format. We missed the owners who were away on a trip of their own, but the caretakers and staff were excellent, and we had fun talking with other guests over breakfast in the morning. The location was perfect for exploring the Napa Valley and the... More

First of all these are the best host and breakfast in Nappa. The is so cute and well maintained. The bed was so comfortable. Beautiful clean bathrooms. The location is great, you can walk into Calistoga for shopping and dinning. They have brandy in your room! I stayed with my 21 year old who just graduated college. She loved the... More

We did a quick trip through the Napa valley prior to business meetings in San Jose. We found the Craftsman Inn online. The pictures do not do it justice. The property is very well kept, has its period charms but all of the modern amenities. The rooms were beautiful and quiet. The cookies and wine welcome in the room were... More

We have stayed at the Wineway Inn and it's sister b and b The Craftsman before. Not only is it comfortable but the owners and staff are lovely people. They provide some excellent room choices with queen beds and great bedding. The breakfasts are delicious with unique dishes and an array of fabulous dishes.

We stayed in the Helena room that was very well done. I think I would have requested a room on the opposite side of the house since this room is next to a BBQ place next door. The breakfasts were amazing. Gillian is a great English cook. Wine every night in the parlor and coffee waiting very early before breakfast.... More

Our visit started with David who greeted us and escorted us to our lovely room which was spacious and had a full bath with jacuzzi tub and separate shower.
