“Old Styling Modern Amenities ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Brannan Cottage Inn does a fantastic job of preserving history while delivering modern amenities. Much nicer and larger rooms compared to many of the hotel options in the area this a great option for couples or small groups. Just a block off the main drag, everything is walking distance in Calistoga.

New owners have lovingly and luxuriously restored the old Brannan Cottages Inn, an 1862 founded resort for the adjoining Calistoga hot springs. It's a National Register of Historic Places homestead with antique skeleton keys and push button light switches, but also Samsung 4K smart tvs with Roku, wall built-in USB ports for convenient bedside charging, heated bathroom floors, ample CO Bigelow products and fancy Frette linens!

You summed up our blend of authentic history and modern amenities perfectly! We're glad you enjoyed both aspects of our inn so thoroughly. It's a point of pride that we can tell each guest a bit of the story behind the property which makes it unique, and the up to date tech makes it comfy and luxurious, or so we hope. Thanks for your great review and we look forward to another visit from you soon.

My fiancé and I staying at this beautiful cottage inn in early December. The rooms we exquisitely decorated and the attention to detail is just amazing! Only 6 different rooms on the premises which makes it a smaller but that's exactly what we wanted. Eden and Kathleen were there for your every wish which included coffee and pastries delivered to our door in the morning. Espresso maker in the room, heated floors in the bathrooms, fluffy robes, and the most comfortable bed and pillows made us not want to leave the room! We can't wait to return!

Brannan Cottage Inn combines the charm of a historic property with the modern comforts that global travelers appreciate. They have developed an App that you can use to customize your wine country experience. For our quick trip they recommended several intimate wine tasting experiences that they arranged and even helped to select the perfect dining option. The rooms are beautiful AND comfortable. Beds are divine with luxury linens and fluffy pillows and cozy robes. We especially loved the fireplace and the deck. The radiant heat floors in the bathroom were a lovely touch. It was as if everything was designed for our comfort. A welcoming cheese plate and wine and some bubbly in the mini fridge were a few of the amenities that greeted us. We couldn't have been happier. If we had more time they would have been happy to arrange spa treatments, hot air balloon or animal safari adventures. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Loved the King room with the fireplace!

We really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were all recently renovated and the attention to detail was great. The rooms are on the small size but very well done and the beds are very comfortable. The location was perfect for being able to walk around Calistoga and enjoy all this cute town has to offer. Eden was very helpful while we were making our arrangements and was able to give us some great recommendations for spa locations and restaurants. Our only disappointment was that we paid for an upgraded room so we could have the added fireplace in our room and they were still waiting on a part for the fireplace so it was nonoperational. Had I known that in advance, I probably wouldn't have paid the extra money for this upgrade. Otherwise, a great experience.

Great location in Calistoga within walking distance to several great resturants. Rooms were well done and very comfortable. Grounds and porches were great place to relax and have a glass of wine in the evening. Thank you Eden for a wonderful stay - will definitely be back!!!
