Pros - close to town, fairly quiet, clean, quaint Cons - needs some updating - lacking charm of B&B - Staff not on premise all of the time We used to stay here before the place was sold. It was awesome with a Happy Hour of great local wine and cheese and a wonderful homemade breakfast. It was fun to... More

Prior to the visit, Doug went out of his way to provide as much info as possible in order to make sure we had everything needed. When we arrived, a surprise tub of sparkling wine was awaiting us in our charming Victorian style room. Perfect way to kick off the evening. Doug was very hospitable and overviewed all of the...

The 2 reviews prior to mine express the exact same things we experienced. It was the only negative experience of our entire trip. Not one thing was what you expect from a B&B experience. The owners are obviously not "people" persons---we never even saw Judy. The rooms are extremely small and have not been updated at all. The breakfasts were... More

This is not a place that I would ever stay again and I am a frequent visitor to Calistoga. The "Sage" room I was in was smaller than the rooms I've stayed in at Indian Springs, the Comfort Inn, Calistoga Day Spa, and Wilkinson's. The sheets were old, the mattress uncomfortable, and the space heater didn't heat the room at... More

The only “Pro” to this Inn is its proximity to downtown. Not the location because it was situated slightly off the main street and sandwiched in between residences and behind the athletic fields, neighbors and traffic were loud. The owner is a talker not a listener, So, his suggestions were not what we asked and just plain inaccurate. We arrived... More

What makes this place special is how you are treated by Doug and Judy. We were on vacation to celebrate our anniversary. When we arrived, Doug and Judy had left us a note and some sparkling wine. Doug helps us plan out next day's winery visits. Breakfasts were great with a lot of fresh fruit. We stayed in the Rose... More

Wonderful. Visited for a wedding with a bunch of college friends. We got the suite. It isn't the largest suite but it fit the four of us nicely. Breakfast was amazing. It is rustic (i.e. older), but that is because it is a landmark. Lots of charm and fit perfectly into the weekend.

Doug and Judy were were a great hostess. The place is cute and our Lavender room was clean and good size for two people. Doug was very helpful in every aspect. He gave us many options for restaurants and things to do around Calistoga. We loved the breakfast with another guests and a great variety of fresh fruits, cereal, coffee,... More

We got lucky and scored a room on late notice because of a cancellation. All our hosts (Doug, Judy, and dog Pinot) were gracious. Once we arrived, we were in walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Calistoga is a sweet town that is very walking friendly. I especially loved sitting in front of the fireplace on a chilly... More

We just got back from a week-end in Calistoga. Beautiful place and the cottage was very well kept with a pretty garden and within walking distance of downtown. Doug was most helpful with info on restaurants, wineries, hikes etc. The room was comfortable and clean and the breakfast great. We also appreciate the pet friendly nature of the cottage.
