The Craftsman Inn in Calistoga is perfectly situated at the northend of the town with perfect walking access to restaurants, great shopping, bars, and spas. The inn itself has been restored beautifully in the Craftsman tradition and also has a European feel. An old style staircase covered in plush carpet leads to spacious and comfortable bedrooms. There is also an...

My family booked a pair of adjacent rooms for a celebration. The rooms are rather small, but comfortable and squeaky clean. The rooms have small TVs with DVD player, and a CD player. The common sitting area is welcoming with a current newspaper, games, complimentary sherry, homemade scones and chocolate. The host couple, Gillian and Nick are from England. Nick...

All B&B's serve breakfasts, but this one serves an utterly distinctive offering each morning. The owner is English, but very astute to the subtleties to making fine food (she also knows her wines and is a fountain of information about Napa restaurants). Each breakfast exceeds your expectations and will rival any breakfast offering at the finest of hotels. Her son...

Thanks for the nice review, really glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree with your comments on the TVs. They were state of the art when we bought them in 2007. Just four years on and technology is at a different level. We were planning to buy new ones over the winter and your comments prompted us to get on...

We stayed here last June and had a lovely stay. We were arriving from Yosemite so we got in a bit late so Gillian wasn't there. She left a helpful note for us to show ourselves in and no one else was in that night so we happen to have the whole place to ourselves - what a treat. We...

This is a superb little B&B. Gillian is a first rate cook - breakfast is spectacular. She is also very helpful with things to do in the area. Rooms are nice, clean, and comfy. Great location at the upper end of the valley.

My husband John and I spent our fourth trip to Napa Valley and Calistoga at The Craftsman Inn and had a terrific time and have found our new home in the Napa Valley.

We are a family of 3 (my wife, my 10 year old son and myself) who loves to stay in B&B's. We've stayed in dozens, all over the world. The Craftsman Inn is an absolutely top shelf B&B.
