My Mom and I have never been to a B&B before, but I 'm glad we chose Chelsea Garden Inn as our first B&B to stay in. The place and location is gorgeous.
Our suite was called the Rose suite and my Mom's name is Rose, so we loved it already. The suite was so warm with it's pot belly stove and central heating. And it was cozy and charming with it's rosy decor and coffee cart, containing a coffee maker with everything you need to make coffee to start our day. The rooms were very spacious and so comfortable, that we didn't want to get out of our beds.
Diane, the manager, was very warm, informative, and a great cook. The hearty breakfasts were to-die-for. It was a great meal to start the day with as we walked and shopped up and down the main street. "Checkers", the restaurant Diane recommended, had the greatest food. And the Spa Diane recommended, Lavender Hill, was so relaxing. My Mom and I have never felt so pampered at the Spa and by Diane at Chelsea Garden Inn.
I whole heartedly recommend Chelsea Garden Inn as the place to stay when in Calistoga in Napa Valley.
