My husband and I had such a wonderful stay here for my husband's birthday. The cottage was extremely clean and had everything we needed.The King size bed was very comfortable and soft (not too soft) with a very plush and cozy duvet. The floor in the bathroom and even the toilet seat was heated which felt very luxurious. They had a few choices for breakfast, my favorite being avocado toast, which we enjoyed in the pretty garden.
I should also mention that we were able to enjoy the mineral pools of the Solange Spa resort for just $45 a person. They also have really nice bicycles for the use of their guests.This was an especially good choice to stay in so we could stay distant from people during this pandemic. We previously stayed in an inn in Sonoma which cost more than twice the price of this inn so we found this to be an incredible bargain with similar amenities and luxury. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.

I'll start by saying, any fantastic trip or journey starts with the amazing humans that you encounter at any establishment. From my initial chat with the beautiful Eden Umble at Brannon was where it began. Eden felt like we'd been friends forever, she provided great suggestions on where to go and accommodated last minute changes due to weather and provided excellent back up suggestions. She has the ability to stay two steps ahead and anticipate your needs. The entire staff at Brannan Cottage Inn and Sam's quaint general store were a breathe of fresh air to see throughout the weekend. Always smiling and saying hello and we felt like a mini family. Room #5 is where it's at, actually i am petitioning they name it after me lol. Room #5 and all rooms are cozy and make you feel like it's a home away from home. The beds are heavenly and rooms extremely clean. They thought of every detail, even warm toilet seats similar to the ones in Japan. I was also impressed with the technology to give you access in and out of the rooms (never had to worry about losing your key). Calistoga is an amazingly relaxing place and Brannan Cottage Inn is a slice of heaven. Sam's general store offers the most amazing coffee I've ever had and I have travelled the globe for my career for the last 20 years and lived in NY, London, and Hong Kong. The mini egg bites, avocado toast and rescue shots were my fave. California is my home and it's great to experience the beauty of our state that we take for granted. We loved walking to Solage and having drinks at the Sol Bar, ask for Kelly he is the best. I've stayed in the top hotels in the world and I would highly recommend Brannan Cottage Inn as I plan to go again in a few months with my mom, then again for any special occasion or merely to getaway.

With lots of options of Calistoga places to stay I will continue to return to Brannan Cottage Inn. I was impressed with the service, attention to detail and value. Everything I was looking for on this quick trip. We enjoyed using the bikes provided, the outdoor seating and the breakfast from the General Store. I appreciated finding accommodations with rooms that did not share air systems and did have separate entrances. Eden was able to get us last minute reservations at top local restaurants.

we have stayed all around Calistoga and last time up walked near Brannan Cottage Inn. We decided to stay and try it out before meeting some other friends at a larger property. Touchless check in and great communication regarding how to get into our room made for a great first impression. Room was SUPER Clean and very comfortable. you are a couple blocks from downtown Calistoga where there are many places to eat and shop (not as many restaurants as pre pandemic) but still good options.. A grocery store is a block away if need anything or if want some small snacks or drinks. grounds of the Inn were in great shape and there are plenty of areas to sit outside and people watch or just take in the local area. Wine Country gets crowded as the sun comes out which draws in many tourists. The Inn is a great value for the local area and coupled with the customer service at Sam's General store for breakfast this really is a great place to stay at.

We travel often for business and pleasure and tend to stay loyal to our brands to reap my elite benefits; however, we decided to try something different this time and we were sure glad we did. First and foremost, the property has a ton of character, history and is absolutely immaculate. The room was both artistic and functional and offered creature comforts like a heated bathroom floor, internet TV and a posh bed. The location was absolutely perfect and we took advantage of the option to walk to town and enjoy a fair share of excellent restaurants and spas. In the mornings we explored nature with just a short ride to some excellent hiking trails. All-in-all, great location and property. With that said, kudos to the team at Brannan Cottage Inn. Eden, Carl and the rest of the staff are what truly makes this property a special treat. I would highly recommend this property, especially for the perfect weekend getaway.

My wife and I are locals here in the Napa Valley, and recently we were evacuated from our home due to the recent LNU Lightning Complex Fires. As we drove away from our home, we watched as the smoke billowed behind us, not entirely sure of where we would go.

We ended up looking for somewhere we could go that was dog friendly where we could relax and collect ourselves while trying to get updates on what was happening.

We ended up chatting with Eden at the Brannan Cottage Inn and she was incredibly helpful in setting us up. We arrived at BCI with our dogs in the car and we were set up in room 6. We had a nice and private entrance near where our car was parked and as we walked up the stairs to our room we were quite impressed. BCI has clearly taken the time to make sure that their amenities are quality. From the rainfall shower to the heated toilet seats, there were a lot of great small details that were well thought out. My favorite part of the room was how incredible the bed was! With how incredibly stressed we were, I thought there wasn't a way for us to get a good nights sleep, but then when I sunk into that comforter, I was proved wrong.

Having Sam's General Store just a few steps away was also awesome. We were able to grab coffee, a few great pastries and take a short stroll back to our room and relax.

All in all, there is never anywhere quite like home, however BCI gave us the feeling of comfort and incredible hospitality while we were away from ours.

The Brannan Cottage Inn feels like you're staying with family--minus any drama. They were in tune with our vacation and very helpful with recommendations and local deals. We borrowed bikes to ride around the area and took advantage of an incredible day pass to Solage through BCI! The trip was a huge success and we are excited to return in the future. Thank you!

The Brannon Cottage Inn was the perfect place to spend my 40th birthday weekend with my girlfriends! It is incredibly charming, with all of the modern amenities that one would desire. The room that I stayed in was beautiful and cozy with a fireplace, espresso machine, a great shower, beautiful flowers and decadent chocolates (that my husband arranged through Eden). The location in downtown Calistoga makes it easy to walk or bike to incredible restaurants and shops. Sam’s General Store has wonderful lattes and some of the best avocado toast and oatmeal that we have had. Eden was incredibly helpful in assisting with our plans. Her dinner recommendations (Lovina and The Charter Oak) were top notch. We also got to enjoy an amazing afternoon relaxing and enjoying treatments at the Solage Spa. I definitely plan to come back for a romantic weekend with my husband and would love to bring my Mom as well.

10/10 would recommend this lovely inn! It was quaint, cozy, and perfect for our weekend of wine tasting! Nicole is amazing at making sure you will have everything you need for your stay (including the check in code for your door…loved having our own keyless entrance!) and communication is better than any 5-star resort we’ve stayed in! The bed was comfortable and all of the furnishings were high quality…linens, towels, robes. Loved the espresso machine and the rainfall shower! Lots of outdoor seating both on the side we stayed on with bistro tables (cafe side) and Adirondack chairs and fire pits on the other side (reception side). The included breakfast at Sam’s General Store was delicious and literally three steps from our room (#1). We walked everywhere in town and rented ebikes from Calistoga bike shop for a day which was a great way to get to several of the local wineries without driving. We also used the free shuttle to get to/from the spa at Solage (absolutely recommend the couples’ mudslide!). where we were able to use their mineral pools for $40, so never used our car once we checked in. Overall, a well-located, well-appointed retreat to come back to after a day of exploring Calistoga and the neighboring areas…only wish we could have stayed longer!
