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.
How to Get There
Found this hotel on Orbitz and was not disappointed. Great location on a main street of Calistoga with quick access to Napa Valley's attractions; the pool and jacuzzi area was as excellent as I'd read in the Internet. Also really appreciated the historic-themed room suite as well as the exceptionally friendly staff, who took time to address my questions - and even called ahead to a store to make sure they had what I needed. My daughter also called her cheeseburger at Johnny's downstairs "the best cheeseburger she'd ever had"... high praise indeed coming from her. Highly highly recommended.
Exploring the Napa valley we stayed in this relatively small historic hotel right in the centre of the lovely town of Calistoga. Mount view has an unassuming frontage so we almost missed it on arrival ! Nevertheless it’s has a handy on site car park , an attractive foyer and well appointed interiors . Our room was comfortable if not large and there wasn’t any view to speak of . But it was on ground floor very near all amenities and the hotel has a lovely , relatively large pool and lounging area which we used everyday of our stay . There is also an extensive spa facility which looked excellent but we didn’t get to use . Breakfast was pretty limited ( despite it being offered in a small but beautiful Art Deco salon ) and we chose to go out each morning We didn’t try the adjacent restaurant but we did enjoy drinks at Johnny’s the interlinked bar which was a popular and lively place . Mount View is in a terrific central location near to all the excellent restaurant , shops , bars and wine tasting places in Calistoga and in easy striking distance of the vineyards and other attractions of Napa so it’s a perfect base for visiting the area . In all we liked the hotel were glad we chose to stay there and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Calistoga .
Wonderful, calming atmosphere.
Attention to all of your specific needs. The staff are extremely helpful and contribute to the total experience . Thank you , Joy ????
