We've had such bad experiences lately with b&b's and I was sure this would be another for my list. Boy was I wrong. On a secluded strip of property lies a group of small, pristinely kept cottages (I'm told it is a converted trailer park.) We stayed in the Vintner's Cottage and upon arrival, walked in to a well air conditioned very large room with classical music playing on the built in stereo. The bed was large and comfortable, and the room was incredibly clean. A gas fireplace lay directly across from the bed, and a small sink and fridge rounded out the room. Through a doorway to a very large bathroom--double sinks on one side, spa tub and stall shower on the other. Double sinks!!! you never see them in hotels, much less in a b&b!
They've thougth of everything..water and snapple in the fridge, bath crystals for the spa, a small lovered window so you can hear the music playing. Just beautiful.
Plus, every night from 5-7, free wine and cheese, with three reds and three whites from the area. Breakfast was simple continental, plus each cottage has a breakfast tray so you can eat in or outside the main building, or if you like bring it back...no pressure.
The staff was quite knowledgable, and the local merchants are great (see Calistoga bike shop). I saw an earlier review calling CGI pricey...in all honesty, its prices were in the typical range we pay at a b&b (we stay at one or two a year) and the CGI goes right to the top of our list. The only shame is, we live across the country, or it would become a regular spot in our lives.
