Solage is an affordable alternative to Calistoga Ranch. Both properties are Auberge resorts. While Solage is very similar to Calistoga Ranch in terms of facilities, it has none of the lush environment that makes the later so special. It is also located close to downtown, which can be good and bad.
Calistoga isn't my favorite town, and nothing like St. Helena. Regardless, each room comes with a pair of bikes that you can ride into town if you're brave enough, and agile enough to make it past the many cars on Silverado Trail which have certainly just come from one of several tastings.
From part of the property, you can see the surrounding neighborhood, which is not nice. This really detracts from even the perception of ambiance.
The restaurant has a Michelin star and is OUTSTANDING. It is far better than just about anything in the area, and I highly recommend that you try it.More
