If you miss this one, you will miss probably the best B&B in Calistoga or wine country. From check-in to check-out our stay was 100% PERFECT. My wife and I along with another couple stayed 3 nights in this beautiful French style Inn while we toured the Calistoga area. Our accomodations in the Carriage House, which I highly recommend, were more like a small cottage away from the main inn. The French doors opened out to a small porch overlooking the lush vineyards, literally a few feet from the foot of our king size bed. The room was spacious, beautifully furnished and spotless. The exterior grounds and garden were absolutely beautiful. The Inn is situated well off the main road so the atmosphere is very quite and peaceful. The beautiful pool area is secluded and relaxing. So much so, that we spent one afternoon by the pool sipping wine and eating lunch. The main ingredient that made this stay special was the Hostess, Terri. We have stayed in many fantastic B&Bs throughout the world, but have never been treated with such professional courtesy and devotion to duty as Terri provided, and always with a great smile. And, her breakfasts were the best we had in our 10 day stay in California. She is truely a GEM! I do not write reviews on every place we stay, only the ones that deserve special recognition. CDV is at the top of that list.
