“Wonderful Honeymoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2010

This place is just amazing. I came with my husband for a short honeymoon and the experience was perfect. We stayed at an Oak Creek Spa Room and it was incredible. The room was so clean and the staff was amazingly helpful and willing to help with everything. The concierge, Gloria was superb. She helped us get into the French Laundry and organized an amazing wine tour. The food at the ranch was amazing and the room service was tasty and prompt. The spa was pricey but worth every penny. To sum everything up it was an amazing honeymoon experience and I would recommend this hotel for those looking for a special weekend. My only word of caution is that the ground and rooms are so wonderful you won't want to leave. We stayed on the resort property for the majority of our stay and I cried tears when I left. For those looking foir rustic romance I cannot recommend the Calistoga Ranch enough.

We spent four nights at the Ranch celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The hotel is described elsewhere and we agree with all the complimentary reviews. The concierge staff arranged a daily itinerary which ran from ballooning to the French Laundry. Wow, I hope we can do it again in another 25 years. ;-)

Our third time to Calistoga Ranch, this time with my husband and a friend from New York. We stayed on one of the Oak Creek rooms, that has a hut tob, and can accomodate a third person (in the pull out couch in the living room). We just love this hotel, and now that all the construction is completed, we no longer hear trucks moving outside the rooms.
The Ranch has done a wonderful job of integrating the little cottages into the environment. You feel like you are at a very luxurious camp in the woods.
Service is great. Efficient, and not obsequious.
Breakfast at the Lakehouse Restaurant is glorious.
The spa, and the pools at the spa, are just great.

A unique and wonderful place! The Calistoga Ranch is understated, serene, and exceptionally welcoming. It is situated in a breathtaking and private canyon and it provided instant relaxation the minute we stepped foot on the property. We were greeted with champagne and the attention to service and detail continued throughout our stay. This is by far the finest accommodations we’ve experienced in the Napa Valley and as far as my husband and I are concerned, the only place to stay when visiting the wine country! Every detail is thorough and gracious without ever being intrusive. The spa was lovely and the masseurs were very experienced. The stylish and spacious suites incorporate the beauty of the outdoors and are exceptionally comfortable with every amenity. The Lake House Restaurant and lounge offer some of the finest cuisine we’ve experienced in the Napa Valley. Steve the bartender was certainly a highlight with his easy-going personality and unpretentious knowledge of fine wine and spirits. The Calistoga Ranch does not miss a beat… Our experience from beginning to end was as picture perfect as the setting!

I have to say that it's very hard for me to give a "5" in anything but Calistoga Ranch takes the cake in terms of the best service, luxury facilities, food, spa, and ambiance.

We stayed in a spa lodge and everything from the indoor/outdoor fireplace to the turndown service to the yummy snacks (free of charge) in the fridge was delightful.

Be prepared to spend a lot for this place and come with some small bills- a mistake I made when I needed to tip our driver. Who was expecting a driver to your room?

Another thing to be aware of- this location is tucked away and sometimes hard to find. Give yourself a little time to get there. But go- it's worthwhile!

We just stayed 2 days at the Ranch and had a wonderful time! And we also celebrated the new years with them and had dinner at the lakehouse and was not disappointed! This is our 2nd trip to the ranch and like the time before we had a hard time leaving! We really enjoy staying there and have a hard time leaving. It is like camping with luxury all rolled into to one! They are always willing to accomodate and leave you some thing at turn down service each night. Do not miss staying here!!
