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. Though the operation keeps growing, they... More

We booked our room at The Craftsman and two rooms for our In laws at the Wine Way Inn. We called ahead of time to coordinate early check in and Gillian was very accommodating!

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. We enjoyed the complimentary wine on our private balcony. The location of the inn was so close to the main drag of Calistoga that we could easily walk to all of... More

This B & B is full of classy touches, from wine and port in the living room, to chocolate oatmeal cookies with port and glasses in the bedrooms! Breakfast both days where fabulous, homemade scones and muffins, poached eggs and apple sausage, fruit, and granola with yogurt, and worth breaking your diet for french toast!

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
