“Amazing Hosts, Food & Hospitality”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Nick and Gillian could not have been any nicer when we hosted a destination wedding and stayed at the Wine Way Inn!

The food was exceptional. Still dreaming about the bread pudding, apple cinnamon pancake, homemade granola with homemade yogurt, chicken sausage...yummmmm

The Kite's were so helpful throughout our planning process recommending many local services and options along the way.

The rooms are very cozy and comfortable. The outdoor space is spectacular with stellar views of Calistoga and many seating areas complete with a fire pit!

A couple from our wedding party stayed in the private cottage which was a great escape for them - very sweet with lots of lovely touches.

Room Tip: Review the different rooms with Nick or Gillian prior to arrival so you are comfortable in the lovel...

Pro: Good location, easy walk to downtown Calistoga. Beautiful back yard with flowers, many tables, fire pits, etc. - a good place to "wind down" with a bottle of wine. Outstanding breakfast, really first class. Our host was very nice, friendly, and helpful.

Con: Our small room did not justify the quite high room rate. No TV. Tiny bath. Quite dark. But it's an old B&B, so no surprise, and some will enjoy the antiques. We thought wine would be offered on arrival, but it was not, and our "greeting" (the other host) was merely "here's your key." Running a B&B is a tough business, the hosts can't be superstars 24/7 so I allow some slack on this.

After checking the reviews on line for for Wine Way Inn my husband booked two nights for a special birthday, but we were disappointed, as we have stayed at several B & B and this did not measure up. The room was OK, but only one chair to sit on and the bathroom was so tiny, shower only. Not a place for a romantic week-end; breakfast was nothing extroardinay very basic. We did not at any time in the 2 days have any interaction with the owners. Met some very nice guest, especially mother and daughter from Redding CA, who recommended several great places to eat, Cindy's kitchen in St, Helena being one.
Would pass this one next time. This is a budget B&B.

For potential guests reading this review, please give us a call and check out our website to get a feel for who we are and what we have to offer. See if you recognize the aloof people and budget approach this reviewer claims to have encountered in the praise of our many other happy guests.

For the reviewer:
We are sorry you were disappointed. It sounds as though you would have enjoyed our luxury property, The Craftsman Inn, more. We had rooms open there when you booked, of course somewhat more expensive, We told you about those when you reserved.

Again, we are sorry that you made a choice that was not right for you and decided to save money rather than choose the luxury accommodation you wanted. We are also sorry that you have chosen to blame us for your choice. Please think about the many interactions we had and about how we represented the Wine Way Inn on our website and in conversation with you. Our goal is always to "undersell and over deliver" we honestly do not know why you feel the opposite.

I do not know what your expectations of breakfast were but we get almost universal praise for what we offer.

Gracious hosts, splendid food, comfy room. An easy walk to downtown, Wine Way is a fine location if you want to see Calistoga on foot. We enjoyed meeting two other lively guests including a family from Bristol, England, drooled over the breakfast of apple pancakes, stewed plumbs and maple-walnut scones (and promptly bought the hostesses' cookbook with all her tantalizing pastry recipes). In an unhurried manner, they set us on a course to visit some of the smaller towns, on a drive through this charming winery-dotted countryside.

My wife and I visited for a midweek getaway (the first away from kids in 8 years) and we were completely delighted. The stylishly apportioned room included a semi-private patio overlooking a gorgeous back yard with a fire pit. After walking to dinner in downtown Calistoga, we enjoyed some red wine left out--and actually made--by our hosts in a charming parlor. A fantastic breakfast topped off the experience. If you are a late and light sleeper, the only caveat is that the Inn is on the main road and trucks start heading to the vinyards around 7:30 so you may feel a rumble. Overall, a home run for our first B and B in Napa.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to negotiate.

We spent three very happy nights occupying this charming B&B exclusively as a house party for our family of ten. Our host was charming, the breakfasts were fabulous, the bedrooms were charming, the patio was gorgeous, and nothing seemed too much trouble for them! A wonderful stay. I would recommend it to anyone.
