We stayed here one night, it was fine. It is right on the highway, so if you are a light sleeper might be an issue. We were fine. Very clean and comfortable, but a little small. the breakfast in the morning was one of the best B&B breakfasts I have ever had...really great and gourmet. The hosts were very nice....calling...

Although frequent travelers, this was our first B&B. Gillian created a very welcoming environment from the moment we stepped foot on the property. The breakfasts were amazing! The location is fantastic as it's right around the corner from downtown Calistoga. The lively conversations at breakfast were great...so fun to meet new people! We enjoyed a quiet, cozy stay and would... More

A fabulous Bed and Breakfast!!! We had 5 couples from all over the world reunite here for a weekend and it felt like home! Great porch space to hang out as a group. The breakfasts, made by Jillian, were truly out of this world ... everything homemade and absolutely delicious. Highly recommend this place and would love to stay here... More

The room we had here was very disappointing. I would describe it as dumpy. It was very small and crowded with very large furniture, and was devoid of charm. I didn't expect it to be fancy, but given the price and the reviews, I thought it would be nice and even perhaps a bit charming. The furniture appeared to have... More

Nice and clean rooms. Delicious breakfasts. What else can you ask for? We had reserved Palisades Room for three people for weekend getaway for three moms. The room was big enough and the room had a queen size bed and a sofabed. The sofabed didn't have the most comfortable mattress but it was doable for two nights. It was located... More

The property is a wonderfully restored and updated Craftsman style property. We were nicely welcomed and taken care off by Gillian who owns the property with her husband. Our room was large and nicely furnished, the bathroom everything you could want including a two person Jacuzzi tub. Gillian prepared a great breakfast, in fact, my wife purchased her cook book...

We always love a little getaway at an inn and the sleepy town of Calistoga is perfect for this. The town is just beyond the crowds but still darling enough for good shops and excellent food. The Craftsman Inn is run by an English couple, Nick and Gillian, and the name tells the story of this old Craftsman type inn.... More

The Craftsman Inn is a wonderful Bed & Breakfast in Calistoga, near the upper tip of Napa Valley. Nick and Gillian run the B&B, along with a few helpful staff, and could not have been more fantastic. We have been to Napa and Sonoma a few times before and stayed in either Napa or Sonoma hotels but wanted to try... More

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
