“Each time I visit, I enjoy it more!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2005

I had another opportunity to visit the Napa Valley and stayed at the Aurora Park cottages again. The innkeepers, Joe and Celeste, were extremely hospitable and provided lots of good information on restaurants, driving directions and wineries. Aurora Park will continue to be my Napa Valley/Calistoga destination whenever I can get up to that area.

Great warm pastries each morning, "It is wonderful to have breakfast delivered right to our door.", "There is nothing like waking up to fresh, warm croissants each morning." The cottages and the experience were just as advertised! Sure beats the Arizona Heat!

We don't normally go to the trouble of writing reviews of places that we've stayed but our recent stay at Aurora Park inspired us to share our delights with others.
We were visiting the Bay Area from Philadelphia looking to see the San Francisco sights and check out the serenity of Napa valley that we've heard so much about. A friend suggested the Aurora Park Cottages to stay while on our Napa visit. Our stay there became a surprise highlight of our completely fantastic vacation to Northern Ca.
The cottages are tucked away and private yet within walking distance of the quaint town of Calistoga. Our cottage really couldn't have been anymore comfortable or pleasant. Spending the evenings on our private deck with our wine with complete silence surrounding us we both commented how this must be like heaven!
Our friend who reccomended Aurora Park will be our friend forever! Though we may never meet you the reader, take our suggestion and check out Aurora Park Cottages. You'll never forget the happy times that you'll have there.

We stayed here as a part of our honeymoon for 3 nights and probably had the place a little too built up in our minds. The cottage we rented was the last one up the line, furthest from the entrance, and it was relatively quiet except for the rare passing car. Inside it was nicely decorated and appointed with a coffee maker, fridge, cable tv, AC, and VERY comfortable bed. The delivered breakfasts were a nice touch and the location is good for sight-seeing, wine tasting and visiting Calistoga's main street for food/shopping/spas. The owners were out of town when we visited (like the previous reviewer) so we never got to meet them but from what I understand they're very nice and responsive to their guest's requests.

In hindsight it was an expensive stay, even though the amenities were nice we didn't feel it was quite worth the price. Our main complaint was roaches in the room. The first night we only killed one little one so we didn't pay much mind to it. The next two nights we noticed that they were actually quite numerous and even got into our luggage (we found several in our bags when we unpacked at the next place we stayed.) In fairness it was summer and the cottages are surrounded by foliage so I expect some insects to get into the buildings but we felt it was a bit too much, especially at the price we paid. We never complained to the caretaker about the bugs, we just dealt with them and left when our stay was up. Please understand that our stay wasn't all bad and I'm sure that our experience was a bit unusual considering the other posts about this place are mostly very positive, so take the above with a grain of salt.

If only the Aurora Park Cottages looked like they do on the Web site. Bravo to the photographer and Web designer who make this place look SO much better than it is! The owners -- who other reviewers raved about -- were out of town the weekend I was there. The fill-in innkeeper was basically absentee. The room was less than charming ... our toilet backed up in the middle of the night, and there was NO ONE on call who could fix it. We ended up going to the "bathroom" outside -- in the rain! When we told the innkeeper the next day, she said she'd send someone to fix it ... but there was no apology and certainly no offer to -- oh, I don't know -- take a little something off the price of the room for our trouble. I am amazed by the glowing reviews this place has gotten from others. I do not share their good experience.

We stayed at Aurora Park Cottages the last two nights of our Wine Country vacation. The owner Joe is great (didn't get a chance to meet Celeste)! Very quick to give you advice when you ask for it and very welcoming. he did a great job of making our stay very personal. Our Cottage was very clean and comfortable. It doesn't feel like you're staying in a hotel, seems like your staying in someone's guest room. The beds are very comfortable and the showers are great! I loved the fact that the coffee in the room was ground, not the packets you get in other places. The Breakfast left at your door in the morning is a great touch. The table and chairs on the front porch were great to relax and enjoy the scenery. Don't leave without trying on the robes!!!

The Cottages were private, comfortable and Cozy. The deck was great to share a bottle of wine in the evenings. I would recommend asking for Cottage #5 or #6, they are farther away from the street.
