We stayed at MHR over Thanksgiving. This was our second time there, and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The owners are so friendly and laid back, and there is so much to see and do. The ranch has plenty of farm animals for feeding, hiking areas, and common areas in the lodge with books and games.
On this trip our dog got sick, and Suzanne couldn't have been more helpful. She left her breakfast preparations to come to the office and give me vet contact information, and ask later how we were doing.
It is located off the main road, but still close enough to the town of Calistoga (and all the wineries) to make venturing away from the ranch an easy prospect.
it's obvious that the owners really care for the property; when we were checking out they were telling us about the renovations and improvements they have planned.
Also, breakfast is great!
