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
Stayed here with a friend just prior to Thanksgiving. Our first visit to Calistoga. Roxan and Matt were super-helpful with winery suggestions and calling for appointments.
Tesla owners, they have a destination charger which relieves all charging anxiety!
Complimentary glass of wine in the lounge in the afternoon and the same for pour-over coffee with pastry each morning.
Enjoyed the spa treatments and outdoor mineral spa as well.
Happy hour at the attached Johnny's Bar and Grill is fun with great food and drinks at great prices.
Really can't say enough, plan to return!
This hotel located in the center of Calistoga is a wonderful retreat and a sure destination. We had a lovely suite. They provide wine in the afternoon for a few hours. Breakfast in the morning is a delightful array of pastries and the most sumptuous “pour over coffee” delivered by Marley. The hotel staff were fantastic; especially Roxan. She assisted us with every request we had. Absolutely superb service by all staff — including the spa personnel.
every year I go in visit Mount view hotel and spa, every year I call Matt Hog and Lauren to schedule my appointments. He does such a thorough job in making reservations for both wineries, dinner, and accommodations . I’m out of your hotel and spa is lucky to have an employee like Matt Hog and during who cares genuinely and has a passion for his work. I own a business out in New York, if I were able to, I would hire him in a heartbeat
The customer service is great. Roxan was very helpful when it came to suggesting where to eat for dinner. Matthew was very helpful when it came to what winery to go to. Alysha was very helpful when it came to the Breakfast thing.
If you see an open weekend on your calendar call or logon to the Mount View Hotel & Spa! We booked at last minute Sunday night and had such a great time-decided to stay Monday too. Matthew & Jonathan were “over the top” for customer Service. They offered a free room upgrade, without us even asking, up to the Presidential Suite. They made sure we had dinner reservations and set appointments for us at the must see wineries. The Hotel was beautiful too.
