“Delightful Vacation Spot”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The Cottage Grove Inn in Calistoga is a terrific getaway spot. Our cottage was beautifully appointed and maintained with a nice porch and landscaping--including a small fountain and birdhouse. The breakfast and evening wine/cheese service were beautifully presented and delicious. The breakfast/wine room and the adjoining patio were great public spaces. The location couldn't be more perfect--close to everything, but secluded from the street. The staff was truly friendly and helpful providing a really welcoming atmosphere. This is a delightful venue.

Cottage Grove Inn has some wonderful free amenities including a full breakfast (smoothies, Belgian waffles, quiche, fresh fruit, pastries, coffees, etc.) and a daily wine and cheese reception from 5-7. The evening spreads are really fantastic -- and you can enjoy them outside on their garden patio, inside at small tables with other guests, or back in your room/on your own private porch.

The rooms are very comfortable and private - shades are even available outside on the front porch to give you extra privacy (and block out the morning sun). We didn't take advantage of the fireplace because the room was warm at night; it would definitely be an added bonus in the fall/winter months. I really enjoy the sound system that they have in the room; it easily hooked up my to my phone and was simple to use.

The only drawback we had was that the property is quite close to neighborhood houses just across the street and it was sometimes quite loud in the early morning and during the day time. This was never a problem later at night though, and since we were from the east coast we were always up anyway! But, if you are looking for a very secluded and silent location this wouldn't be it -- the main road is on one side of the house and the neighborhood is just across from it so it's sort of nestled in between two well traveled (and sometimes quite loud) roads. That being said, it is easy to walk to restaurants and shops - we didn't need our car in the evenings at all.

We would definitely return here - hopefully, for a longer stay!

We fell in love with the Cottage Grove Inn. The cottage was beautiful, very cozy. We really felt pampered. From the wine and cheese happy hour and breakfast, to the scenery and proximity to everything, this place was a wonderful find. We used a Groupon and it was worth every penny.

We've stayed in a few B&B's over the years, but this was the PERFECT one in my opinion. The indiviual cottages were like "home" away from home. Cozy bed, large soft chairs for reading or sitting in front of a fire, porches with rockers to enjoy the beautiful garden & evenings. Yummy breakfasts & wine tasting at dusk........who could ask for anything nicer. We will definitely return to Cottage Grove Inn and recommend it to our friends that may be traveling to Napa. Thank you Donna for such a beautiful getaway for our anniversary.

You really feel like you are alone amongst the other cottages. Every staff member we encountered were all friendly, helpful, and pleasant. The wineries and restaurants that were suggested were spot on. Complimentary wine, water in the room makes you feel welcome immediately. The sunken tub and fireplace really set the mood in this great place for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: This is the best place to stay in the heart of "Adult Disneyland".

We randomly came across Cottage Grove Inn through a travelzoo deal and lucky us! The rooms were so lovely and it felt so private being in separate cottages. Each cottage had a fireplace, jetted tub, and a complimentary bottle of wine! The next morning, we used their free bikes and had such a fun day biking to nearby vineyards, we especially loved Tedeshi vineyard just down the road. We were meant to go hot air ballooning and when we walked to our pick up location just a few blocks away, we were told the wind was too strong and couldn't go. I guess this means we will have to go back and try again!

To NYTravelgirlNewYork,
Thank you for the kind comments and taking the time to share about your stay.
You're right on, guests always rave about how they enjoy the privacy at Cottage Grove Inn because of the stand alone cottages. We're glad to hear you also took advantage of the complimentary bikes and enjoyed the nearby vineyards. Bummer about your hot air balloon ride but yes, that just means you get to come back again! We look forward to seeing you next time!

Cheers!

This setting is quaint and comfortable...cool under the canopy of trees on a summer day. The management is extremely helpful and pleasant, and the cottages are well appointed. The single drawback, which has been consistent the three times we have stayed at Cottage Grove, is that the adjacent neighborhood is noisy and somewhat ruins the sense of peacefulness the hotelier has worked so hard to create. We continue to return time and again, but every time wish the establishment was a little more removed from slamming car doors and shouting that filters through the trees. Nevertheless, my guess is that we will return, regardless.

Room Tip: Cottages 1 through 3 have a larger front patio/garden area.
