My wife and I were on our honeymoon in Napa Valley, and were really ne rvous about where to stay and what to do in Napa. We chose Meadowlark from Fodor's guide book, and everything we read about from the book and from Trip Advisor was exactly right. Meadowlark is amazing. It sits right outside of Calistoga on a big chunk of land set back from the highway. The ground includes a horse stable, beauitful gardens, and great views of the surrounding areas. The owners, Kurt and Richard are the greatest people in the world. Kurt takes care of the grounds and the horses, while Richard cooks the meals, helps new guests find things to do in the area, and attends to needs in the room. We got there, and found a wonderful note saying that our room was ready and that they were out on the town running errands. We stayed in the Mountain View room, and it featured a huge deck for our room, a 4 post bed, television with DVD and VHS player, along with a mini fridge and couch and siting area. The bathroom was beautiful and included a 2 person jacuzzi tub, that was so relaxing. In the mornings, we went to the main house and were greated with a wonderful breakfast. A bowl of cereal, orange juice, and coffee were all waiting for us at our table. After we sat and ate, Richard came out with the main course, which was different everyday. One day we had custard filled french toast covered in strawberries, another was what Richard called a fluffy omelete, and the third day we had poached eggs. During breakfast, Richard would sit down with us, and talk to us and answer any questions we had. He knows the valley so well and suggested places we go everyday (including restaurants to eat at, wineries to go to, and places not to go because they were tourist traps or had bad reviews) Everyone of his suggestions was perfect. The property also includes a pool, jacuzzi, and sauna that is clothing optional. Our stay at Meadowlark was so relaxing and wonderful. When we go back to Napa Valley, we will be staying at Meadowlark again. They made you feel so wonderful and welcome.
