Calistoga lodgings

My Wife & I are looking to spend 4/5 nights in Calistoga in August & would be grateful of any help & suggestions as regards nice places to stay,I have seen some scary prices mentioned,is it unreasonable to find something around $200 per night or less?

If airfares are your determining factor, we'd suggest you get on the email lists of the airlines that offer transatlantic flights from your location to the SF Bay Area.

We've had a number of international guests do this, and time their vacations based on the last minute deals they can get (crazy cheap sometimes, esp in the off-peak season).

It seems like the best times are Nov 1 through the end of February, if that helps you plan ahead.

The good news is, lodging prices are also at their lowest during these times-- so that should help you as well.

Cheers,

PS We're pretty sure The Elms is no longer in business (their website is gone). Here are the most recent reviews-- the last stay being in 2006/7 (and not very favorable):

Sadly I'm stuck with 3 fixed weeks at the beginning of August so my flexibility is zilch,this is of course the busiest,hottest(not San Francisco!) & dearest time of the year,also living in the north of the UK my closest international airport is Manchester & nobody flies direct to the west coast of the USA from there so a minimum of 2 flights is required,try telling my Wife,who want's to get back to Ca but feels that she has had a bellyful of flying,that she has to pay an arm & a leg for the privilege ain't easy!

Sorry to hear that.

We suppose that's the price one pays for living in a lovely spot like the north UK. If you do ever happen to come out at another time of year, we think you'd find the cooler, somewhat wetter weather in Nov-March to your liking (different from the UK, but quite nice).

Cheers,

With a huge oil refinery about a mile away not many people call the area lovely but I don't complain,it's given me a good life,in earlier times I used to have flexible holiday times & we used to travel in September,prices & temperatures were lower & everywhere less crowded,roll on retirement!

Ah. . . when you said northern UK, our thoughts drifted to Cumbria and the Lake District.

No matter. When you do make it over to this side of the pond, please stop by and say hi! :)
