For our annual trek to the Napa Valley, we considered several b & b's in Calistoga, and were not disappointed in our choice of the Aurora Park. The complex consists of six individual cottages set on a gentle slope, near central Calistoga. Our unit was a spacious and well-appointed queen, with daily maid service and a nice continental breakfast delivered to our room each morning, What really made this place wonderful was the unit itself; it was like having our own little house! The innkeepers, Joy and Barry, were extremely hospitable, and helped us plan our winery visits. I can't think of any place we'd rather stay in the Napa Valley.

  • Liked — Quality of accommodations, cleanliness, helpfulness of the innkeepers

When looking for the perfect Honeymoon, we came across the quaint little town of Calistoga. It couldn't have been a more perfect choice. The best part of our expereince was the B&B we stayed at, Aurora Park Cottages. We stayed in Cottages 6 at the top of the hill. I loved the french doors that opened to the lawn area. We saw Deer and wild Turkey in the early mornigns.
Joy- the new inkeeper- was a delight. She makes theyummiest pastries every morning and was so nice to talk to. I so want to move there, and joy almost talked me into it. Aside from her friendly demeanor and yummy cooking, she was so accomodating. She rushed to clean our room when our flight arriced early, came to our cottage at midnight when I was frantic to find a way to get red wine out of the carpet and was so helpful when we needed to find travel boxes for our treasure of wine we purchased. on the last day we had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with the original owners Joe and Celeste, and they are two of the most adorable and friendly people I have ever met. The beds are so comfy and the people are so friendly. I could not have imgained a more personal expereince, it sure beats the imporsonal touches of staying at the Hilton, that is for sure.
SOme places we LOVED while there, Vincent Arroyos!!!! Such a generous man, he personally gave a tour of his winery, let us taste straight from the barrel and gave us a complimentary bottle of Nameless to celebrate our honeymoon... which I later spilled on the carpets.. oops. Anyways, the charm of the small winery was the best expereince we had there.
Bar Vino was a nice night cap, we especially loved La Sirena's Muscato Azul for a nice... Not too sweet desert wine.
Peju was another great place with reasonable priced wine that complimented many palats.
I just wanted to say thanks to Joe, Celeste, Joy, Barry, and Harley!!! We can't wait to see you next April when we bring my Mother IN Law up there. See you Soon!

My daughter gave us a gift certificate for a night at Aurora Park Cottages. We have been to B&B's here in Calistoga before and enjoy the area. The cottage (#3) was warm and comfortable - nice touches with the robes and over stuffed armchairs. We liked it so much we stayed an extra day! New inkeepers Joy and Barry are friendly and gave us good recommendations for dinner (Bistro Jeantry) and lunch (Checkers). We loved the wine tour at Pegases (be sure to take the cellar tour with Jason!).

  • Liked — Comfy room and bed
  • Disliked — would have liked Biscotti's and apples each day we stayed

This is our first time staying at Bed & Breakfast Cottage, per our fellow traveller we choose Aurora and our verdict, Aurora Park Cottage is the best.

The cottage is situated in the middle of the wineries in Napa & Calistoga, Old Faithful Geyser & Petrified Forest which makes the cottage more convenient to stay. It looks so homey both inside and out.

Celeste and Joe, made our stay memorable. They accomodated us with our request such as arriving late, the heater & light was on, the Cuvee M Champagne is chilled and chocolates truffles was yummy. They even have a flyers that says Happy Anniversary. ^_^ Celeste also give us the free tastng and 15% discount at Mumm's.

Breakfast at 8:30 AM, is delish. Fresh Orange Juice, fruits and croissants are delivered in your cottage. By the time we got back at night, our cottage was cleaned up. Coffee and tea is also available.

One thing I like, they have real orchids by the bed, the sheets smells like it's freshly laundered and our cottage is clean. The bed is very comfy, we actually had to set our alarm clock so that we don't overslept. Trust me, living in San Francisco, you'll appreciate the peace and quite that the cottage offers.

Our cottage is #3....it's so cute. We highly recommend this place and will come back to stay whenever we stay in Napa/Calistoga.

We spent two nights at Aurora Park and it was ideal. Joe and Celeste have a great place here in Calistoga. It's very close to many nice vinyards and Joe can point you in the right direction no matter what your interested in. Fine dining is right down the road so the location of the Cottages could not be much better. Keep an eye out for the turkeys that come down to visit from time to time. The breakfast was very good and we slept like babies in the comfy bed. (I suppose the wine helped) Joe was nice enough to set us up with a great private tasting at Beringer that proved to be one of the highlights of the trip!

One of those very special places that you feel so grateful to have found! Especially for those hard workers who need a place to truly getaway for rejuvenation and relaxation.

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. I can't think of a thing that could have made the experience better than it was. From the large plush bed, the soft robes, complimentary water, gourmet coffee, fresh fruit snacks, the morning breakfast delivery...such a peaceful indulgence ;-).

This is one of those extraordinary places that provide all of those unexpected, but much appreciated special touches. We were even greeted by one of the owners as we pulled in - amazing!

They won't be able to keep us away! A must for anyone and everyone looking for that special getaway!
