“An amazing escape...and honey!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This was my third visit to Calistoga Ranch and it just keeps getting better and better! The level of service, comfort and hospitality exceeds all expectations, not to mention the amazing outdoor showers, wine from the on property vineyard and the delicious honey from their own bees!!! Go visit now!

Room Tip: I love the rooms up on the hill, by the lakehouse.

Dear colovin,
Let me just start by saying that I am so happy that each time you come the experience just keeps getting better. We pride ourselves on making each and every guest visit unique and memorable. We are so fortunate to have our own vineyard and that it produces such a spectacular wine and our honey bees have been one of our most fulfilling projects. In addition to producing a delicious honey, they are providing us with insight on the genetic strengthening of the population. Stay in touch with us on Facebook as we unveil some exciting new additions to the CR family. The baby-doll sheep will also be back soon to do their jobs as our "natural law-mowers". Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and we will look forward to your next visit.
Warmly,
Coni Thornburg, General Manager

There's not much more to say than idyllic. It's your own private paradise. Service is impeccable--concierge Gloria got us into Far Niente, a place that's booked months in advance. Whatever your wish, your whim or your wine, Calistoga Ranch has it. If you are looking for a luxe stay in a natural paradise within the Napa Valley, this is the place.

We spent 4 amazing days here in January. It was unusually cold, off-season so no fun in the pool and there was quite a bit of construction and rehabbing of the property going on and I still give this place 5 STARS! We hiked, ate great food, had the most amazing spa treatments and some of the best rest I've ever had on vacation. The employees treat everyone like the POTUS!!! I couldn't say enough great things about this place. I will never forget this trip and hopefully will be able to return again some day. The only downside is how expensive it is but it's worth every penny. They have loaner Mercedes to tool around the valley in at no charge! A bottle of their own wine is in your room waiting to be popped and sipped by your beautiful outdoor fireplace! When I went on the hiking trails and visited the yoga deck it was as if I was on a movie set that cued up all the amazing wildlife the area has! Large amounts of deer and many, many kinds of birds including a couple of juvenile eagles! After the hike you need to try out the awesome outdoor shower your room has. As you can tell I really enjoyed this place. Oh, and the spa!!!!!! My oh my that place works miracles! Book this place today! You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had the room that was attached to the spa and is also right next door to the restaurant but was s...

Wow! It sounds like you had a wonderful stay and that makes all of us here at the Ranch very very happy. I am thrilled that you were able to experience most of the amenities and that you left feeling relaxed and refreshed. That is our goal for each and every one of our guests. We have just added on to our Canyon hiking trail so it will be a new experience the next time you are with us. We are so excited that our wildlife friends came out to greet you during your stay. To reconnect to nature is priceless. Thank you for taking the time to share you wonderful adventure with us.

This was heaven on earth for us. We went with another couple and loved it so much, that we are going back this year and hope to make this an annual event. Upon checking in, you are offered a glass of their house red or white wine which they make at their vineyard. The concierge is amazing, organizing any vineyard tours you want with limo service if you don't want to drive.
Eating our meals overlooking the most amazing views, sitting by the pool with a valley view behind it, being served beautiful food and wine where ever we were, having access to their Mercedes fleet whenever we wanted, receiving the absolute best massage ever (and I've had lots!), hanging out in their awesome spa, having golf carts take you anywhere if you don't want to walk, wine bottles in your room, superior service everywhere, I could go on but to really understand it, you need to go and experience this for yourself. It is super pricey, but if you can afford it, it is totally worth your while. Loved, loved, loved it.

Seems like many reviewers use the word "perfect".

From top to bottom, this is a first class place. Service is exceptional from the waiters to the cart drivers to the front desk. Room service is fast & perfect.

One small glitch in a couple of dogs making way too much noise in the cabin next door. The front desk was on it quickly and we thank them for that. Nicole went out of her way to make sure we were OK after the crazed dogs interupted the ambiance of the place.

My wife had her "best facial ever" at the spa.

So yes, it was a pretty perfect place.

Dear advsrbill,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience on Trip Advisor. We certainly don't mind the use of the word "perfect" to describe our property. We are thrilled. I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed the luxurious room service offerings and a facial at our award winning Bathhouse spa. Both are truly amazing. This is the first time that I have heard of our "furry" guests being rowdy, usually they are such well heeled travelers. I am, however not surprised that you were well taken care of by Nicole and that the your issue was resolved and you were able to enjoy the serenity of the surroundings and relax. We will look forward to welcoming you again very soon.
Warm wishes,

This ranch is the definition of perfection! We made the unfortunate mistake of booking at a different near-by hotel, walked in to our room at 'the other place' and walked right back out to begin the search for what we had 'thought' we had booked. Searched for local places on tripAdvisor and came across the Calistoga Ranch. The reviews don't do this property justice. Seeing is believing! We drove up the drive without calling to see if by chance we could get into the Ranch. Anna at the front desk was so amazing and sympathetic to our mistake of booking somewhere else. Luckily there was a deluxe room available so we took it! First time ever being offered a glass of wine while we were completing the booking process. The rest....well, you'll have to discover on your own. Breathtaking views, 'Top-Chef' quality food and presentation, it can't be more apparent that the staff is there for YOU, and the Spa....oh the spa. Wow. Wish I would have gotten a 3 hour massage instead of 1! Thanks Anna for turning our - into a +!!!

Room Tip: We were up on the hilltop, the lower units were being renovated. Honestly, I don't think there...

Dear MattW,

What an wonderful review! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. I am over the top with excitement that we were able to fulfill your expectations and hopefully gain a new member of our CR family. What you experienced with us is the type of memorable stay that we strive to provide to each and every one of our guests. We are so happy you enjoyed your time with us so much.

Anna is such a treasure and I am so happy that she was able to touch your stay and make your getaway exactly what you sought. I am also thrilled that you were able to enjoy a treatment at the Bathhouse Spa which shouldn't be missed. Next time you will have to book our Calistoga Cure treatment for two and half hours of bliss. We will look forward to your return and thank you again for sharing your feedback with us.

Warm wishes,
Coni Thornburg, General Manager

We are very fortunate in that we live a mere hour from Calistoga. This has become our "go to" place when we need a special treat and a weekend to decompress. We have been to Calistoga now four times and the only complaint I can think of is that the alarm clock went off on two occasions at 2 AM. This says absolutely nothing bad about the resort, my point being I can't think of anything else even slightly negative to say about this place. The room is ridiculously comfortable and the fact that the living area and the bedroom are separated by a beautiful outside deck with fireplace really make it special. The staff is delightful and the ground are breathtaking. Sure, this kind of perfection comes with a high price tag but we have never once regretted spending our money on this experience. When we are lounging by the pool it absolutely looks and feels like you are in Tuscany. I can not wait for spring to come so that we can escape again to Calistoga.

Room Tip: Nice to have a room right in between the pool and the restaurant.
