What a great visit. Never stayed in Calistoga but will definitely return. Minutes from great food and wineries. Quaint small inn a block from downtown with all the perfect touches. Heated bathroom floors, fireplace, easy parking, quiet and a nice outside sitting area.

charming room, close to everything, helpful but not intrusive staff. since we have a bias toward walking to everything, worth saying also that's in the heart of Calistoga & that you can get to most everything in town on foot.
