Brannan Cottage Inn
109 Wappo Ave., Calistoga
A quaint, immaculately-kept inn on the quieter east side of town. The decor is sort of old world with its rich wallpaper and mahogany wood. It's large pool and efficient spa makes it a good package at a slightly lower rate than some of the other hotels in the area.
580 Lommel Rd., Calistoga
This hotel has its own cabernet-producing vineyard, so you get the full Napa Valley experience without even leaving the property. There's plenty else to do on site, from walking the stunning grounds and hanging out at the pool, to gathering eggs from their deluxe new coop. Should you book a stay in the early fall, you can join the pruning, harvesting, and crushing of the grapes. Each of the fifty rooms has a fireplace and a private deck, and occupies its own, secluded lodge, which guarantees plenty of privacy. While Calistoga Ranch makes for a great romantic holiday, it’s kid-friendly too, with a new family pool and a lunchbox menu just for little ones. Should you want to go out (it is Napa, after all) you can borrow one of the ranch's cars.
Solage Calistoga Resort & Spa
755 Silverado Trail, Calistoga
Due to an abundance of white-washed, barn-like architecture, walking around this elegant newcomer feels like taking a stroll through a posh horse stable, with white, clean lines, and tall ceilings (but certainly no horses). Like most resorts in the area, rooms are organized into studio cottages with private patios, and their pool scene is nice and roomy, with plenty of deck space and lounge chairs. You'll be in good hands, food-wise, with their Michelin-rated restaurant, and a pretty serious spa. Calistoga is known for its mud baths (the geo-thermal heat and mineral-rich mud make for a healing restorative bath), and we've heard that Solage offers one of the best around.
