Brits Gill and Nick run this terrific B&B in Napa Valley with English aplomb and humour. Great spot for dropping off while wine tasting or just moseying around. The breakfasts and packed lunches are different, interesting and healthy. The rooms are very comfortable and overall the Craftsman has a most welcoming vibe

This place is located at one end of downtown. It's right on the main highway which made it really easy to find. They have several rooms and we stayed in the Helena room which was upstairs. Very quaint, lovely room. We chose this one for the spa tub! Breakfast is terrific! Our host Gillian greeted us on the first day... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of returning to the Craftsman Inn where we were both greeted by a warm hug from Innkeeper Gillian. The smell of fresh baked goodies wafted throughout the Inn as we checked in and followed us all the way to the upstairs where our room was located. Our second visit proved to be more... More

My husband and I just celebrated our 10 year anniversary and stayed at the Craftsman Inn in Calistoga. It was within an easy walk to town, the rooms were very comfortable and clean, and the food was amazing! Each morning we woke to the smell of breakfast, which is a very pleasant way to be woken up.

This is a great litte B&B in Calistoga. It's my first time staying at the Craftsman Inn and it was a great first impression. I was greeted by a gracious host who was baking cookies and granola. What a wonderful and cozy place! The smell of fresh baked goods was enough to keep me there. I stayed in the Spring... More

My husband and I stayed at the Craftsman Inn for our 1-year wedding anniversary and we just LOVED it! Calistoga is such a beautiful town and this B&B is about a 2 minute walk from town. It's right on the main drag & is so easy to get around. As for the B&B itself, Gillian was amazing! She was so... More

My wife and I were lucky enough to be able to escape for the weekend to Calistoga, and by a measure of good fortune, arrived at the Craftsman Inn for our night's stay. To say that we were overwhelmed by just how friendly the owner was, would be an understatement. She had an invested interest in making us feel welcome... More

My brother & I desperately needed to get away to relax. Took me awhile to decide on a B&B. There were a lot! I'm so glad I chose the Craftsman Inn. At check in we met one of the owners, Gillian. What an amazing lady! She's not only one of the owners but she's also the chef! And what a... More

We needed a place for one night, easy in and out, in a small town, for a reasonable price. This small B&B was perfect; attractive, clean and comfortable, cable & wifi, gourmet breakfast at table with all other guests. If you have a problem with stairs or if slanted ceilings bother you, make sure you will be on the first... More
