Just spent 4 nights at the Inn and it was a great experience. Innkeepers Joel & Jim were very friendly, helpful, and attentive; the Inn is spotless; the rooms cozy and lovely. Everything was of very high quality, and the breakfast's were delicious! We felt very comfortable there. Will definitely go back

Room Tip: All of the rooms were beautiful and well-furnished

Thanks a lot for the so kind words. The great thing of low season is that we have enough time to dedicate to each guest and it has been a real pleasure for us to pamper you! We are happy you appreciated our brunches; the exciting challenge will be to surprise you next time! Cheers! Joel

We stayed one night in Chanric on a whim. We were well looked after by the owner who made the guests a four course breakfast in the morning. Beds were comfy and it was close to downtown Calistoga. Would definitely recommend for a couple's weekend break.

Stayed here sadly only for one night at the end of August. Absolutely wonderful experience and a beautiful property. We were lucky enough to be the only guests that night so we had our choice of room; enjoyed some time by the pool and in the hot tub and we were brought out a nice little plate of appetizers as well as some wine. Champagne when we arrived and more waiting for us when we came back from dinner. The breakfast the next morning was impeccable and the service was great. All around an absolutely fantastic experience and I would stay here again in a second.

Many thanks to Joel and Jim for everything and I hope to be back some day.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms may be slightly less chilly, it was a little cool in the basement.

Room was cozy and high end although lacking in a TV, which is fine given the surroundings. Finishes in the bathroom and guest suite were all very high end and looked like they had been redone recently (11/22/13).

Service was impeccable - nothing better than the owner of the B&B truly behave as a best friend hosting you would - champagne flowed freely (at check in, after dinner, and at breakfast), recommendations were highly personal and spot on, and a fantastic breakfast served with the utmost care.

If I was staying at a Ritz or 4S I would have easily paid $80 for the breakfast per person. There's no nickle and diming here as you would find in a larger, branded hotel - sodas, waters, pelligrinos, etc are all complimentary as are Lindor chocolates.

Did not try the pool or jacuzzi.

My sister an I recently took a sisters weekend retreat and ended up at the Chanric Inn - What a delightful Surprise. The Customer service was above and beyond anything I have ever experienced.

My husband and I have stayed twice at the Chanric Inn in the past year and I can't believe it's taken me so long to write a glowing review! We decided to stay in Calistoga instead of Napa because of the beautiful town right in the middle of wine country. Joel and Jim were amazing hosts on both of our visits, from the champagne on our arrival to inquiring about our breakfast preferences. Each morning is a gourmet treat with homemade food and fresh fruit drinks - what a way to start a day of wine tasting! Our favorite part of each day of our trip was the cocktail hour in the evening. Sitting on the porch with a glass of wine and a snack watching the sun set over the mountains is something we've talked about many times since. The rooms are modern, sleek, and comfortable, and you have coffee waiting for you each morning outside your room. The Inn itself was renovated in between our two visits and it's clear that Joel and Jim know what they're doing when it comes to interior decorating as the place looks incredible! We plan to make the Chanric a part of our stay every time we visit Napa and can't recommend it enough!

Room Tip: The renovated room on the first floor has an enormous bathroom with heated floors and a huge spa tub...

We stayed at the Chanric Inn for two nights and had a wonderful time. We are far from Napa experts but our two trips have convinced us that the smaller towns on the edges of the valley seem to be what everyone pictures when they imagine Napa. Calistoga is a picture-post card example and the B&B is right on the edge of town. The Inn is immaculate and the hosts have gone to great lengths to make sure every detail has received attention. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was fantastic on the first day. We were sorry to have to leave early the following morning (before breakfast) but still found a tray with food-for-the-road right outside our room when we woke. Many thanks! Everything was perfect and we would highly recommend this Inn to anyone visiting the area!
