“Fun in the Sun”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

This was our 3rd annual trip to Meadowlark. We keep coming back to this amazing place! Richard and Kurt make you feel so welcome. The main house is beautiful with a shaded porch and views of the surrounding mountains. The rooms have large private decks, great scenery and gorgeous comfortable decor. Richard makes the most amazing breakfasts with ingredients from their beautiful garden. While eating breakfast on the porch, you meet interesting people(who all return to this oasis) and listen to Kurt and Richard's world travels which always adds flavor to the meal.

We have stayed in the pool house the past two years which offers privacy, as it is detached from the main house, and a kitchen which we enjoy using for some other meals. It also provides a private deck with lounge chairs and a shaded table. We love being so close to the pool, hot tub and sauna all of which are the perfect temperature and so relaxing. The clothing optional pool area is gorgeous with plants and flowers and plenty of sun or shade for when the sun really starts shining.

Richard and Kurt are so accommodating, offer great tips on local restaurants and make sure you are truly enjoying yourselves. It is such a welcome retreat and I look forward to returning for years to come!!

This was our third visit in three years, and it keeps getting better. We had originally booked the Pond Room, but since a suite was available for our three nights, we were graciously upgraded. The breakfasts again were amazing (Richard should be teaching at the Culinary Institute down the highway). But the breakfast experience isn't limited to the food. You are then treated to a very interesting, and engaging discussion with Kurt on a multitude of subjects, as well as his own experiences, and the history of he B&B. The pool again has plenty of lounge chairs in both the shade and sun. The jacuzzi and pool are both at very comfortable tempuratures. It was also nice seeing again several people we remembered from last year, that happened to be there at the same time. Again, this B&B is an experience beyond just bed/breakfast, and when you leave, you truly will miss friends.
p.s.- you will never go wrong with Kurt and Richard's dining recommendations. Thanks again for letting us know about French Blue in St. Helena

Room Tip: Of the three rooms we stayed in, the Mountain View is our favorite.

Staying for a week in Suite 2 on the second floor. Very large room with a fireplace and covered deck, seperate sitting room, and a large bathroom with a two person jacuzzi.
Morning breakfasts cooked by Richard were unbelievable. Sunbathing by the clothing-optional pool was refreshing and relaxing. Met some interesting people from across the country, many who were repeat guests.

Kurt and Richard have the "gem" of Calistoga, what a hidden treasure! The main house is so inviting with the covered porch and relaxing sitting room. The rooms are so comfortable from the sofas to the bed. Private veranda with comfy lounge chairs surrounded by nature with the aroma of lavender. The private bathroom had a huge jacuzzi tub with lots of windows that opened up to the private veranda. Richard is amazing in the kitchen, the best breakfast you will have at any B&B.
The pool area is so tranquil, rose bushes and lavender surround the pool...aroma therapy at it's finest! We have stayed in the Mountain View room and in the main house both rooms were more than comfortable. Once you visit Meadowlark you won't want to stay anywhere else!

Room Tip: Great views from Mountain View and very peaceful. Room 5 was spacious with a nice private veranda...

My husband booked a room here for my bday and it was fantastic! We got the Mountain View room which was private and the room was beautifully decorated and peaceful. The hosts, Richard and Kurt, could not be more engaging and gracious. The grounds are lovely - rose gardens, horse stables, chicken coop, clean pool and mineral hot tub. If you want a nice getaway, i highly recommend it! And then go eat at Solbar.

Room Tip: For privacy, get the Mtn View room or the room at the pool house.

My sister and I were on our way to a B and B in Calistoga, but longed for a relaxing day in the sun. Prior to departure we phoned and spoke to Kurt, and he let us know we could purchase a day pass for Meadowlark, and enjoy the mineral pool, jacuzzi and serene surroundings. What a treat! We enjoyed the waters, the quiet of the pool and hills, hummingbirds were dashing in and out of the trees, fellow sun-worshippers had their snacks and beverages in their little cozy areas around the pool deck, Kurt and Sparky (their little doggie) made the rounds and complimented people and shared travel stories. This was my first adventure at a clothing optional facility...and I would take part again. I was very comfortable, as were the people around. An amazing day!

Room Tip: All rooms were beautifully decorated, and situated in such a way that it really felt like a private...

We regularly pass by Meadowlark to and from San Francisco, but never took the time to investigate. That is until we heard from several friends who've raved about it. So, on a recent Sunday we took the time, and we're glad we did. Kurt and Richard are gems. They're very engaging, and able to make you feel as though you're the most important guest there. The property is meticulously maintained, the grounds constantly manicured, and the rooms wonderfully warm. It really makes you feel as though you're off into the distant country, yet only a short drive to the heart of Calistoga. Though we only first enjoyed a day-pass pool-side, we had such a marvelous time that I called in sick in order to enjoy another day of peace and relaxation.
Thank you my friends for showing us such a great time. We look forward to seeing you regularly.
