Found this lovely place on one of the voucher websites, and loved the cabin and Greta's low key but warm hospitality. I'm hoping for enough time off from work asap so we can stay up there again. Greta cooked us a supreme homemade breakfast. She made sure we had everything we needed in that fully equipped cabin, even nice books... More

This place is different, no doubt about it, but it's lovely. Greta, your host, is welcoming and organised and liaised with us by email leading up to our arrival. We felt right at home as soon as we walked into our lovely room. Don't expect modern and think more cosy huts (although the bedrooms are a very nice size), I... More

My wife and I closed out 2014 and began 2015 in the best possible way....soaking in the hot springs very near here for quiet meditation and introspection. An unexpected bonus was finding this hidden oasis in Middletown, The Backyard Garden Oasis. This will now be our preferred place to stay instead of staying at the lodging at the hot springs....

My friend and I were traveling on a dark and rainy night, and needed a place to stay in Middletown. We discovered the Backyard Garden Oasis on the Internet, and were fortunate to be able to book a room. Upon meeting Greta for the first time, it felt like reuniting with an old friend, and when we got to our... More

First time staying at this quiet B&B tucked away in Middletown. Greta was a great hostess for our weekend adventure in Calistoga. She had great little cottage rooms; very clean and private. The spacious backyard housing the cottages was full of great plants, trees, birds, butterflies, lizards, and was very relaxing; a great place to unwind. She made some fabulous... More

...for us as we came to California from the Midwest to spend time for a midweek get-away with our adult son and his roommate. The gardens, cottages, not to miss breakfast and relaxing/accommodating demeanor of Greta & the property was the perfect choice to set the tone for our trip. The proximity to wine country, state parks and local flavor... More

The little cottages are situated in a big backyard with nice flowers, plants and a fountain. The lady of the house is a pleasant person and she cooks a nice breakfast. One does need means of transport as the cottages are about 12 km. out of town and there is no busstop.

We invited our son and daughter in law to meet us at the Backyard Garden Oasis. It was the perfect place to meet and enjoy the yard and gardens. The rooms were spacious, bright and very comfortable. We do a lot of traveling and this has to be one of the very best choices to stay. Greta was very friendly... More

It's hard to imagine needing a place to stay in Middletown. Why would anyone go there? It's 20 miles on a twisty road to Calistoga or a long drive in the other direction to Clear Lake. That said, if you are staying in Middletown, this is the place. Beautiful grounds, clean, comfortable rooms, delightful breakfast treats in the morning. Greta... More

Our son attends bike races at Boggs and there's nothing like sleeping in a nice soft bed in a quiet tranquil cottage the night before a big race. There are 3 separate and private cabins, the yard is lovely and fun to explore. In the spring and summer Greta has a cute veg and flower garden and her sweet dog... More
