“Great Location”
Reviewed 30 October 2007

My husband and I stayed in the "Garden Room" for 4 nights during our recent trip to Napa Valley. Calistoga is a laid-back, easy-going town. The Chelsea Garden Inn was lovely. The location is great - we walked to restaurants and shops each night and were away from the noise of traffic on the highway and the main downtown street. The innkeeper was helpful and breakfast each morning was quite nice - eggs, homemade bread, fruit, granola, yogurt. A great way to start a day of wine tasting. We would definitely return. October is a fabulous month to visit.

Stayed at CGI for about 8 nights while visiting Napa, Sonoma and the coast to chill (pun?) from the stresses of work. CGI is in Calistoga, and anyone staying in Napa Valley should consider somewhere other than Napa city itself to get a relaxin and slow feel of the Valley. Calistoga is a small town and easily accessible to the 29 and Silverado Trail. I felt Napa city was just too suburbish and crowded.

CGI had wonderful accomodations and a superb innkeeper, Connie. She made excellent breakfasts - complete with a different hot egg casserole every morning, pastries -and for our stay - we had croissants and scones:), fresh fruit, bacon/sausage, yogurt and cereal every day. You won't leave hungry in the a.m.- that's for sure. Connie also gave us great recommendations in what wineries to go to. This B&B location is on a quiet street, but still very close in walking distance into the main street of Calistoga, and close to a small supermarket for anyone needing essentials.

As for trip highlights - try to schedule a ballooning trip if the weather is clear and ensure you float over the wine valley (not over Napa city, and not in the mountains)..its a once in a lifetime experience. We went to about 13-14 wineries during what was considered a long stay for wine country but it was relaxing and :) gluttonous. Best scenery had to be Kuleto Estates (off the beaten path in the mountains); the best wine education was a toss up between Beringers and Cakebread; the best "art" display - Clos Pegase; and the best wine (taste) was Grgich. The worst - Sterling - too much of a "disneyland" tour, and the wines we tasted were nothing spectacular.

We just spent 3 days at this lovely B&B. Connie, the innkeeper, greeted us with a very friendly smile. She showed us around the property, and made us feel very welcome and relaxed. She was exceptionaly knowledgeable of the Napa Valley, which was a big plus for us. We stayed in the Garden Suite which had a king size bed and a large walk-in shower. Outside our entrance we had an area which seemed like it was our own private patio. A little further away was the swimming pool which was very welcoming after one of our days vising the Napa Valley. All three of our breakfasts were wonderful with ample servings for seconds. The Inn also provided us with a 5:00 pm wine and cheese hour. We ate dinner one night at the Calistoga Inn which is nearby, and definitely recommend the place during your visit. One of the neat things about this Inn is that you can mingle with the guests as much or as little as you want. Each suite has their own private entrance so you don't have to dodge anyone unless you want to. I definitely will return here if the occasion presents itself.

We recently stayed at this Inn. The room was pleasant enough and the hosts were very friendly( they were temporary) however having sampled several B & B's in California previously this did not come up to the standard we expected. The breakfast was very poor!! Just some cereal ,small portion of fruit and an apple pancake with tiny slice of ham.We appreciated the fact that we are British and sweet & savoury are not our usual taste but some toast or croissants would have been nice. We will not recommend this to our friends.

My boyfriend and I took a trip to lovely Calistoga for our 2 year anniversary. We stayed in the Cottage at the Chelsea Inn and were THRILLED with the accomodations. As wonderful as our cottage was, it was Gary the Inn keeper that made the trip so special. The Breakfasts are amazing, the wine and cheese reception is charming. It's in walking distance to "downtown Calistoga". We can't wait to come back! I can't overstate the delightfulness of our stay at Chelsea Garden Inn!!

I recently took my husband and three other couples to Napa Valley for a surprise 60th birthday present. We usually stay at a large resort when we go out there, but this time wanted something more "homey" since we were travelling with other couples. We couldn't have found a better place than Chelsea Garden Inn with its very comfortable suites, large living room and pool areas.

It is located just a couple of blocks from the main street in Calistoga, making it very convenient to both main roads in Napa Valley (Silverado Trail and Route 29). The owner, though not on the premises, was very accommodating thru e-mails setting this trip up (because it was a surprise), even getting the B&B manager to order us a cake for my husband's birthday.

Speaking of the B&B manager, Gary, he could not have been more wonderful. He was very helpful with any questions we had and made the most wonderful gourmet breakfasts every morning (even making them earlier than house rules to accommodate our early schedules). As my husband said, "No is not in his vocabulary." All in all, it was a wonderful trip to Napa, but especially made even better because of Chelsea Garden Inn.

Just returned from our first girls trip with sister in laws and mom. Our first stop was two nights at Chelsea Gardens and I have to say I could not of imagined a nicer stay anywhere. The whole expereince was absolutelty perfect! The Inn was chock full of Old World European charm that put you in a peaceful place well needed by the time you arrive.
The beds were comfortable and the warm and inviting living room was wonderful for evening gatherings for wine and cheese. My favorite was the wonderful breakfast that Gary prepared in the mornings topped off with fresh fruit, coffe and juice. Gary did everthing with such pride and perfection at the inn and was so very helpful with assisting you with all your needs. I am difinantly looking forward to returniing to a place that knows the true meaning of hospitality. A+ for Gary and Chelsea Garden.
