Aurora Park Cottages

Reviewed December 29, 2013

We took advantage of their winter special and spent three nights at one of the cottages.

The bed is just great. The microfiber sheet and pillow cases are soft and comfortable. Great sleep!

Decor is not fancy, but tasty for a relaxing stay. The property is on Hwy 128 (Foothill Blvd) but the double-pane windows really block all the noise. Town center is just a short walk away.

Some visitors may find the water pressure of the shower a little low, but we applaud the management's effort (including the low-flow toilet) to conserve water during this drought year.

We love the freshly baked croissant in the morning!

We will definitely come back some time in the future.

A few suggestions:

- there were two apples and water in the fridge that were waiting for us upon our check-in --- nice touch. It would be even better if they were replenished daily.

- make a couple sets of table utensils and plates available in the cottage --- visitors may want to enjoy some wine and cheese late in the evening. (There are already wine glasses and a corkscrew)

- wifi connection speed fluctuates and signal strength varies inside the cottage --- it didn't bother us, as we were only looking up local info and required really low bandwidth. Adjusting the location of the wifi antenna may help.

We stayed at Aurora Park cottages for 2 nights and it was a great experience. The owners and the property manager were very friendly and provided helpful suggestions. The cottage was very clean and tastefully decorated. The continental breakfast of pastries and fruit was a great start each morning. (We don't eat much for breakfast so it was perfect for us. Those expecting a full morning meal may want to make other arrangements for breakfast in Calistoga.) The cottages were a 15 minute walk to the main street of Calistoga but it was a pleasant and peaceful walk. The restaurant and wine tasting suggestions were also very helpful.

We stayed at Aurora Park cottages for 2 nights during our honeymoon. The owners and innkeepers were incredibly helpful - they set up winery appointments for us in advance, all of which turned out to be great experiences. The location itself is great - very close to downtown Calistoga and tons of great wineries. The daily breakfast is delicious and a great way to start the day before wine tastings. Highly recommended.

Definitely a place to stay while in Napa Valley! We have been to Aurora Park Cottages twice and the second time was even better than the first. Joe and Celeste, along with Kate, have made both of our stays memorable. You don't want to miss this! The friendliness...the romance...the ambiance...the privacy...the accommodation...the breakfast. We can't say enough! And we can't wait to come back. We would never stray from this experience. Thank you...Joe, Celeste, Kate.

Room Tip: All good! No bad rooms!

My wife and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary here this past week. Contacted Joe and Celeste in advance they were extremely helpful, courteous, friendly and personable. Made us feel like old friends even before we showed for the room. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome, helpful hints and an unexpected upgrade. All the cottages are great, clean, very quiet, extremely comfortable beds with a private deck and tiled shower for two. We've been driving thru Calistoga and Napa Valley for 25 yrs...missed this one... Try and it you won't be disappointed...we also went to Lavendar Hills for the Romeo & Juliet pkg for massage and treatment...equally as great.

Room Tip: all rooms are good...the farther up the hill...rooms 4, 5 & 6 would be quieter and more secluded

Spent three nights in Calistoga during our honeymoon. The service was impeccable. The cottage was simple but beautiful and was exactly what we wanted for a relaxing few days in Napa Valley. Similarly, the breakfast each morning was simple but delicious.
Calistoga was smaller that some of the other towns in Napa Valley, but still had some great restaurants and access to excellent vineyards nearby.
Note that the cottages are about a 10 minute (flat) walk into town.
Thanks for a wonderful stay - we hope to be back one day.

We spent our 30th anniversary here . Very nice and close to everything . Very comfy bed
The innkeepers couldn't have been nicer . We will be back . Ask about the lavender hill spa another must . I have had many massages and the one I got at lavender hill was by far the best

Room Tip: We liked room #6 it's at the end and larger
