An idyllic cottage in a quaint wine country town.
It's no surprise that this charming Victorian country cottage is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The structure was built in the 1860s, and, according to the town layout that was developed by Calistoga founder Samuel Brannan, it is the only cottage remaining at its original location. The building itself is distinguished by its intricate gingerbread, gable-board and scalloped ridge cresting, and it features a broad wraparound porch and a private courtyard surrounded by ornamental herb gardens. The six guest rooms are decorated in an old-fashioned style with four-poster beds and private entrances. Two of the rooms are "mini-suites," meaning they boast separate sitting rooms. The inn offers free Wi-Fi, daily complimentary breakfast and a complimentary wine and cheese hour on Friday nights. The house is approximately five minutes walking distance to Calistoga's popular spas, hot springs, shops and restaurants. In summer, a two-night minimum stay is required.
