After all that’s happened in 2020. We decided to check out Calistoga for a few days. It’s been maybe 15 years since we were there. We booked the Brannan Cottage Inn. What a wonderful surprise this place is. When you hear Cottage Inn, I think of old wallpaper, noisy pipes small rooms. Brannan was not any of these. We had room 6, a huge fluffy king bed, gorgeous headboard that blended into the feature wall, Roman blinds, a fireplace, very clean bathroom, even a heated toilet seat. To top this off on location is Sam’s General Store/Cafe. Not only were the guest having breakfast there. It appeared some of the locals go there for the coffee. Yes the coffee was amazing! But, so was the breakfast and the staff working there. The manager Eden was very responsive to our emails prior to arrival. All in all, the Brannan is a must return too. You just can’t good wrong with this place. We highly recommend it.

We had an absolutely lovely one night stay at Brannan Cottage Inn. Eden was incredible you accommodating and made us feel so welcome. We had an adorable room overlooking the courtyard area, where we played games and drank wine as the sun set. Breakfast the next morning was on the house, delicious avocado toast at tables in the garden. The inn is located just off the Main Street, quiet but super accessible for walking into town. I even left a bracelet and Eden promptly mailed it back to me. Plan your next stay here for a relaxing get away!

We stayed at the Brannan with 3 other couples and had the most amazing experience. Eden attended to all of our needs. We were warmly greeted and even had personal welcome notes in each of our rooms. She arranged dinners and bike lunches and just went above and beyond. The Inn is walking distance to food and drinks, a great bike ride to Old Faithful and has a cozy courtyard with tables and chairs where we lounged, had drinks and just enjoyed the peace. The morning breakfasts and coffee were great, I recommend the avocado toast and my husband loved the sandwich. Make sure to turn on the heated bathroom floors and toilet seat. Overall, the accommodations were just fantastic. I definitely plan on staying here again. Thank you Eden!!

I cannot say enough great things about Eden and everyone at Brannan Cottage. They were so helpful planning dinners for our party of 8 and giving us recommendations. The morning coffee and breakfast was delightful. Rooms are clean and comfortable. We loved the heated floors! Perfectly located in the town of Calistoga. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. I highly recommend staying here! Thank you Eden!!!

My husband and I discovered this charming little place about a year, and we've stayed here two times since then. The property is lovely, the rooms are cozy and clean, the beds are comfortable, and Sam's general store (with breakfast included) is a great little way to start your day! Eden is the queen of hospitality, and she is so welcoming and accommodating, taking care of every little detail leading up to, during and after your trip! You can't go wrong staying at this little gem.
