Calistoga getaway with Old Hollywood charm on the outside and a wine-inspired design on the inside
Wine-inspired interiors complement the Old Hollywood charm at this sophisticated sleep in downtown Calistoga. Silver screen stars such as Ingrid Bergman and Carole Lombard once slept here, and you can see why. The stylish rooms and suites are done in a dramatic, moody palette, with nouveau baroque details like damask print wallpaper, button-back headboards and dark hardwood furnishings. Your Napa Valley wine tour begins in the artist wine cottages, each uniquely designed and styled for a boutique winery, such as the crimson Peju Province, which features a private patio with a semiprivate outdoor Jacuzzi. Foodies can feast on Italian fare at Barolo, or California farm-to-table cuisine at JoLe, where husband-and-wife duo Matt and Sonjia Spector offer inventive à la carte dishes in addition to four-, five- and six-course tasting menus. Intimate lounge areas invite guests to socialize during a Friday evening wine tasting and watch indie flicks on the big screen during select movie nights. Care to chill instead? You can take in the dry Calistoga air from a poolside lounger, then get a mineral or mud bath treatment at the hydrotherapy spa.
In the Area
In the northeastern corner of rural Napa Valley, the unassuming town of Calistoga has a modest and friendly air that suits its verdant vineyards and natural hot springs. The restorative waters can cure any wine-induced stupor, and you can have the experience right on-site with a mineral or mud bath treatment at Mount View’s fully equipped spa. Well-heeled oenophiles join locals for farm-to-table fare at JoLe Restaurant, while beer enthusiasts delight in Napa’s lesser-known craft at Calistoga Inn Restaurant & Brewery. For a slice of history, go for a tasting at Chateau Montelena, the legendary Napa winery whose world class Cabernet, Sauvignon and Zinfandel inspired the movie Bottle Shock. For scenic Napa Valley views, make a date with Somerston Wine Company, which offers buggy rides in all-terrain vehicles through 200 acres of vines and hot springs. Looking for higher ground? Book an early morning tour with Napa Valley Balloons for prime wine country panoramas. Verdant Bothe-Napa Valley State Park features a mile-long trail that will take you through a Douglas fir forest and past the 19th-century Bale Grist Mill.
