“Exactly as advertised!!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Planning my 30th wedding anniversary - I wanted to leave nothing to chance. My wife and I are very well travelled and we have set the bar fairly high when it comes to level of service. It's not that our expectations are unreasonable, but very specifically - we expect what we pay for. Cottage Grove Inn left us feeling like we underpaid!!! The accommodations were better than we expected... often times the glamour shots on a travel website capture anything but the reality of a facility. In this case, the web photos and reviews were dead on!!! On to the staff.... From the front desk to the breakfast staff to the housekeeping and maintenance staff - every single person made us feel like we were a guest in their world, and they did it in such a genuine manner that is overwhelmed us. If you are planning a trip to Napa, skip all other locations and stay in Calistoga... And stay nowhere except Cottage Grove Inn!!!!!!!

My husband and I enjoyed a long weekend here for our 35th anniversary, and we were completely charmed by the whole experience of Cottage Grove Inn. On a winter weekend so rainy that we were forced to cancel all our outdoor plans, we were happiy content to curl up on comfy armchairs before a blazing fire (plenty of firewood delivered regularly) with a bottle of complimentary champagne and just enjoy the relaxing vibe. The staff was remarkably friendly and thoughtful, breakfast was delicious, and our hot tub-built-for-two was a fun extra. We recommend this place highly and look forward to a return visit very soon.

The Cottage was perfect. Well appointed, clean, charming and luxurious. The setting was magical with mature trees and whimsical touches. It's walking distance to the lovely town of Calistoga and biking distance to some excellent wineries, resorts and world class restaurants. Staff was attendant and we had a good visit.

My husband bought a travel zoo coupon for Cottage Grove Inn. What a great deal. Although check in was not until 3:00pm, I called to ask if we could get our wine tasting coupons and/or use the complimentary bikes if we got there early. We got on our cruisers and stopped at the Palisades deli for a great sandwich and then off we went for a bike around around town. Water bottle holders and baskets on the bikes..... Went back to the hotel to check in. My husband took a nap while I walked to town to check out all the stores. The Inn is only a few blocks from the town center. Back to the inn to enjoy complimentary wine and cheese from 5:00-7:00pm. Headed to Bosco for dinner (yummy). We both slept great; the beds are very comfy. Up in the morning for a complimentary breakfast of quiche, waffles, pastries, fruit, and cereal. Did I mention we also got a free bottle of wine. Checked out and wished we were staying another night. Would definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cottage 4. It was darling. Minimal amount of traffic heard.

What a great getaway! Beautiful, peaceful nook just off the main drag in Calistoga. Great breakfast, nice welcome wine and cheese. The beds are the most comfortable I've stayed in for a long time. They may even trump my own bed.

Highly recommended!

we were so happy with our stay. these little cottages are just gorgeous and they have really thought of all the nice amenities. the breakfast was beautiful, hot tub in room very nice, lovely lovely lovely. we loved calistoga too. we just wished they had a pool but there doesn't seem to be any room for one on the property, so can't fault them for that.

The place was excellent but we did have an issue with ants. I know not much could have been done about it but nothing was remedied after bringing it up with the front desk. The general manager recently asked for feedback to her email which I promptly sent that I loved the place but had an issue with ants and was just generally disappointed it was not taken care of. You would think I would get some type of response, just an apology, something, but nothing. This is why I won't give it a perfect score.

As for the review of the place: Cottage was amazing with nice room, entertainment center, jacuzzi tub, his and hers sinks. The works. Wine and cheese in the evening was very nice with jams, crackers, etc. Breakfast was excellent too with fresh smoothies and waffles made to order. They have movies to rent at the front desk which was nice after a day of tasting. Location is right down the street from downtown Calistoga, which we enjoyed. We had a Groupon discount and it was definitely worth it. I do agree with one reviewer who mentioned the skylight right above the bed. If you like to sleep in but are a light sleeper this may be an issue as every morning the light would shine right on your face. Front desk was very courteous to our issues and even helped us with shipping our wine back to our home.

Dear Freder85ico,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review...I would like to kindly remind you that our staff did try to help when you brought this to our attention in the late late evening. First thing the next morning I happily called pest control and they came and sprayed the outside of the cottages. We then offered to help come in and kill any ants that were in the cottage but you did not allow us to do so.
We're glad to hear that you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us in the beautiful Napa Valley. Thank you again for your nice comments.

Take care,
Donna Johnson
