“Aurora Park is A+”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We read a lot of the reviews on TA before we decided to select AP for our Napa Trip this year. I was a bit hesitant initially by the outer appearance from some of the pics we saw on TA. The cottages looked a bit small and run down but man was I wrong. AP is an absolute GEM of a place to stay. Spacious, quiet, incredibly clean, the beds and sheet are crazy comfy, delicious breakfasts, and the hospitality of Kate was top notch. They definitely pay attention to the details! I would HIGHLY recommend (and already have) AP to anyone! If I had to find a negative it would be the WiFi but (very slow) but when you are on vacation who needs it! Thanks Kate for a great stay. We will be back!!!

Room Tip: Get the cottages that are the farthest away from 29.

Ted,

You're welcome. We thank you for your wonderful comments about Aurora Park Cottages. We work hard to make the place as nice as you describe. We also want to thank you for your comments about our WIFI. Based upon your comments, we just upgraded the WIFI to one that is 4x faster than what you experienced. Please come back and test our upgrade.

We really like the idea of individual cottages. No noise through the walls and conversely we don't have to worry about the TV being too loud.

These units are spotlessly clean, surprisingly large, quiet and well lit. The only slight blemish was the WiFi was slow and kept dropping the connection. Other than that minor detail, the stay exceeded our expectations.

Joe, our host, was friendly, informative and could not do enough to make our stay pleasant.

Highly recommend this property.

If you are looking for pools, hot tubs or other such amenities, this is not the place. However if you want a quaint, charming, quiet, clean homelike cottage to rest and relax after or before a day of wine tasting this the place. The innkeepers are friendly and helpful in navigating the local scene and making reservations. Breakfast baskets and sipping your purchased wines on your private deck with beautiful views are the kind of amenities we enjoyed and you will too.

My husband and I stayed at the Aurora Park Cottages in September and had a wonderful time. We have visited the Wine Region several times and have stayed at multiple places and this stay did not disappoint. The linens were fantastic and the individual cottage was nice for privacy. The porches were great, but as you can see from the pictures are not completely private. Breakfast was great and the cottages were nicely decorated and clean. The Inn Keepers were great - Kate was fantastic and Joe is extremely personable and spent time chatting with us about life in the wine region. Location was great (although our preference was St. Helena and everything was booked), close enough to walk to Calistoga. Overall a great stay. 5 rating would have taken hot tub/soaker tub.

My husband and I stayed at Aurora Park Cottages in August and really loved it. Kate was wonderful and made us feel very welcome when we arrived. Our cottage was so comfortable and cozy. Everything was clean and updated. I never hesitated to call Kate whenever I had a question about what to do or how to get somewhere. She never seemed too busy to stop and help out. We wanted take a drive to the beach and she mapped it our for us and gave recommendations there too. She also let us use her cooler while we were there and gave us fresh ice packs both days. We had plenty of bottled water in the room but she also gave us 4 more bottles for the ride which I really appreciated. Joe's wine tasting notes were so helpful and really helped us plan our days. We had never been to Napa before and I am glad we decided to stay in Calistoga because we liked the feel of the town most. Very charming and good restaurants all in walking distance from the cottage. I would definitely stay here again.

... spent at Aurora Park Cottages. Jo and Celeste were very friendly, helpful hosts and pointed us in the right direction with regards restaurants and vineyards. It felt as though nothing was too much for them. The cottage itself was a real home from home. One of the most comfy 'hotel' beds we've ever slept in! complete with large bathroom, sitting area and somewhere to eat the warm pastries and fruit which were hand delivered each morning. a gentle 10/15 mins walk from the centre of Calistoga ... long enough to let dinner settle after a good meal out, but not too far that you felt you needed a cab or bus.Would definately recommend and go back if in Calistoga again.

My experience at the Aurora Park Cottages in Calistoga was absolutely the best. The facilities are charming; only six cottages gives it a very intimate feel. The sheets and bedding were decadent and only eclipsed by the fresh made croissants that appeared each morning. The village is only a short and pleasant stroll away. What really made this visit stand out was the innkeeper Kate Hegre; her pleasant demeaner and obvious experience instantly made me feel comfortable and confident our stay would be fabulous. I would suggest anyone who wants a relaxing place to stay in Calistoga managed by the best in the business try this Bed and Breakfast out.

Room Tip: All the cottages are great!
