For Wine Country excursions, you can live like a local by taking advantage of both Sonoma and Napa valleys, minutes from renowned spas of downtown Calistoga, world-class restaurants of St. Helena and award-winning wineries of the Napa & Sonoma Valley. The story of Calistoga: 19th-century developer Samuel Brannan wanted to create a West Coast version of Saratoga Springs (renowned at the time for its mineral spas), but he had been drinking when he announced his idea and the name came out garbled as the “Calistoga of Sarifornia." This origin myth sounds a little fishy, but nevertheless, Brannan's vision of creating a relaxing and therapeutic Napa Valley getaway was eventually realized. Thanks to the area's natural hot springs, a slew of spas sprang up, offering restorative mineral soaks and mud baths. Today, you will find award-winning restaurants, boutiques, and art galleries lining Calistoga's quaint, quiet main street, which is set against a backdrop of rolling hills. Those hills are home to some of Napa Valley's more than 400 wineries, many of which lie within a short drive of downtown Calistoga. The curious wine lover can choose from a wide array of vineyard experiences, ranging from tours to tastings at wineries modeled on English castles and Tuscan villas. One word of warning: many of these places require reservations, so be sure to book in advance. In 1976, the historic “Judgement of Paris" earned Calistoga in the Napa Valley a place among the world's top wine-producing regions. Ideally situated in the heart of the valley, our Ranch is the perfect base for exploring some of the region's most celebrated wineries, spas and restaurants.Other Things to Note
Due to the canopy of trees/private setting, there are several skylights and no window coverings, except in the bathroom.
