“Very nice place to stay”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

We stayed four nights and had an outstanding stay. Gillians breakfasts are more then a meal, they are an experience. We had booked the Spring room with it's outdoor patio, but found in Novemeber it was a little cold to use the outdoor area and asked if we could change rooms to have more indoor room. Nick was very accomidating and made it happen. Gillian was great at making sure anything we needed was taken care of, from reservations to suggestions of places to see. Make sure you try her home made yogurt and granola with the fresh fruit served daily. The staff and houskeeping were outstanding. The only thing I think they could use is a hot tub out back. I suggested it to Nick. Cris and Dawna

Room Tip: Sspring room is very small, no sitting area. We loved the Howell room lots of space. Rooms at the f...

We enjoyed our stay at Craftsman Inn. The hostess, Gillian, is an excellent cook and helpful in finding things to do and visit. We stayed in the Diamond Suite with a large corner jacuzzi tub and an enormous bathroom. The Inn is very convenient to Calistoga (walking distance). We will gladly recommend this place to our friends (in fact I just did so today). Thank you Gillian for a wonderful stay. Ron is already looking through your cookbook. Can't wait to see what he decides to fix first. Thank you again.

On arrival at The Craftsman Inn we were feeling very tired after delayed flights and busy highways so all we wanted to do on arrival was to be shown our room (Diamond) and maybe sleep for awhile. We had a very warm welcome by the hostess/owner Gillian Kite and were just in time for happy hour.. hence once we were shown our room (which we fell in love with and the tub...we simply had a wonder soak with a glass of wine...and a scumptous scone that was just waiting to be eaten. We went into town for a meal. In the morning we were woken by the smell of breakfast.. Gillian's scones fresh fruit and bread pudding dish was so amazing...Not being a fan of B&B, the craftsman inn has certainly changed me of that, cannot wait to return. Thank you GILLIAN.......

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Howell room. The room was very clean and felt like home, the bathroom was amazing with the biggest jet spa tub I've ever seen. Gillian was a great person to wake up to with her smile and great breakfast, the champagne was great too. I would definitely stay in this room and at this bed and breakfast again. Thanks for a great stay!

We have stayed at the Craftsman Inn several times and always look forward to returning. It is very welcoming and definitely our favorite place to stay in Napa. I love Gill's breakfasts - especially the homemade granola. The rooms are very comfortable and nicely furnished. I also like being able to walk to the shops and restaurants of Calistoga. We'll be back.

Having spent most of my life travelling for a living I am always looking for places that can provide me with the home comforts that are lacking in the modern accomadation offered worldwide. Here is one of the shining examples of what is needed in this day where holidays are so important and each day needs to enjoyed. The service and attentive attitute of the host Gill will be in my memory for a long time to come.
The breakfast cannot be equaled in any hotel I have stayed and food was as good or even better than my mother's . What more can I say.
I will return again and have recomended this inn to many of my friends.

This is a wonderful place to stay in Calistoga. The historic inn in cosy, clean, comfortable bed and nicely furnished. You can walk to everything! - no need for a car to explore Calistoga. as restaurants and shops are very close by. The highlight of the stay was the amazing, freshly cooked breakfast- a real treat. Gillian kite even has her own cookbook - her food is that good!
