We've been going to Cottage Grove Inn every few years or so for special occasions since back in the days when the cottages had individual themes such as “Fly Fishing” (our first time was in that one!) While the cottages no longer have those cutesy themes (kinda miss ‘em, though!), each one has its own special character. Each cottage stands alone so you never share a wall with anyone. Each has a parking space directly adjacent or right across the driveway. Our cottage this time - #17 – provided another special experience with the amenities we’ve come to expect and enjoy: deep soaking two-person tub, shower (with a reliable supply of hot water for both), heat and AC as well as ceiling fan, small refrigerator, fireplace, full entertainment system with generous channel line-up, extremely comfortable king bed, two very soft and comfy lounge chairs with ottomans, smooth, warm-colored hardwood floors, warm, dimmable incandescent lighting throughout, a desk and chair, and a lovely entrance with chairs and extra firewood on the front porch. Beyond all of that are the small details that make this place even more special: they provide robes, slippers, excellent EO soaps and lotions, a fully-stocked honor bar, postcards with free postage, nice, understated décor, a picnic backpack with everything you need, a folder full of GREAT information about Napa restaurants, hikes and wineries, free bicycles for borrowing, and it's absolutely spotless clean. Not to mention the 3-4 wines and 5-6 cheeses along with several types of crackers you receive each evening FREE between 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., and the excellent FREE continental breakfast with seasonal fruits, homemade granola, toast, fresh-made waffles, hand-made coffee drinks (lattes, espressos, etc), infused water, milk, OJ, etc. Finally, the property is a SHORT walk to downtown Calistoga and right across from Indian Springs Resort and features very beautiful and well-maintained landscaping including 50+ foot trees throughout. 8+ foot partitions between the cottages, along with the lovely landscaping and smart layout, make this small resort feel miles away from civilization, despite the fact that it’s right next to Lincoln Avenue. Beyond everything else, we are always treated with the utmost courtesy by EVERYONE from the management to the breakfast attendants to the cleaning and landscaping staff. We even got a special bottle of sparkling wine for our 17th anniversary! We keep coming back because the folks at Cottage Grove continue to maintain a high level of quality and a personal touch that we appreciate, and we LOVE Calistoga and its quaint, quiet charm. It’s not cheap, but we always wonder why they don’t charge even MORE (hope they won’t!) as we believe it's worth it for a special occasion. There’s a reason that the ratings for Cottage Grove Inn are almost universally 4s and 5s and that the VERY few 2s and 1s are given for petty reasons that don’t have anything to do with the quality of the actual stay. We can’t recommend Cottage Grove Inn any higher.
