Brannan Cottage Inn, Napa Valley, California

Brannan Cottage Inn

Napa Valley, California, United States

Built by Calistoga town founder Samuel Brannan. Warm and welcoming Brannan Cottage Inn is the last remaining 1860 resort cottage still in its original location, and has been lovingly restored. Its historic past blends seamlessly with modern amenities, and provides an ideal base for exploring Napa Valley wine country.

Location

8 / 10

Brannan Cottage Inn is located steps off Calistoga’s main street, Lincoln Avenue. The city’s downtown area, with an assortment of restaurants, wine tasting rooms, and shops, is just a few blocks’ walk away. Calistoga is famous for its hot mineral springs and mud baths, and there are a number of spas within walking distance for those interested in getting dirty. However, the dozens of nearby wineries tend to be the area’s most popular attractions. A rental car is a necessity, as there is no public transportation.

Style & character

8 / 10

This was one of the first buildings in Calistoga to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The property artfully blends historic charm with the expectations of modern travellers. Functioning Victorian décor coexists in rooms with colourful Art Deco wallpaper, USB ports, and speedy Wi-Fi. It’s quiet, regardless of the time of day, and guests can sit outside under an old Siberian elm tree, and feel like they have the property all to themselves.

Service & facilities

7 / 10

Staff are friendly and happy to help guests make the most of their time in Napa Valley wine country. Those interested in a famous Calistoga mud bath or massage can take advantage of a guest discount at a spa less than half a mile away. Guests are also welcome to use the hot springs pool and whirlpool at Brannan Cottage Inn’s sister property, UpValley Inn & Hot Springs, just a quarter of a mile away. Bike rentals can be arranged for visitors who prefer to explore on two wheels instead of four.

  • Parking
  • Wi-Fi

Rooms

8 / 10

Brannan Cottage Inn has six rooms. Four are located in the historic main cottage, and two are steps away in a second, smaller building, added to the property in the 1940s. Both Deluxe King rooms in the separate building have a private entrance, deck and gas fireplace. They also have a contemporary feel and unique colour scheme – room 5 has gold hues; room 6, silver. Historic rooms have a king or queen bed, and are accessed by the cottage’s wraparound porch. Rooms in the historic cottage have Victorian-style furnishings, but are cozy and comfortable, not stodgy.

All rooms offer a long list of amenities including an in-room illy Espresso machine, mini fridge with freezer, Frette linens, robes, towels, a television with Netflix and Amazon Instant Video access, and bedside USB and plug sockets. Bathrooms have heated ceramic tile floors, marble accents, and rainfall shower heads.

Food & drink

7 / 10

There is no restaurant on-site, but there are many Calistoga eateries within walking distance, and staff are happy to recommend their favourites, and help with reservations if necessary. A complimentary, locally sourced, continental breakfast is served daily from 8am to 10.30am, in the lobby. Selections include pastries, fresh fruit, made-to-order smoothies, coffee and tea.

Value for money

Wellness Springs Eternal in Calistoga, California

Wellness springs eternal in Calistoga, Calif.

Carol Ann Davidson, Tribune News Service on Published in Travel News

Old Faithful Geyser was showing off: spewing his endless stream of hot mineral water high into the blue sky. He is definitely the oldest “character” I met on a recent trip to Calistoga, Calif.: about several million years old, if you go way back to his humble geothermal beginnings deep underground. In the late 19th century he was released from his primordial prison and has reigned intermittently ever since. A friend and I sat and watched him for a while as we munched on a selection of take-out delicacies from Sushi Mambo. Not a bad way to begin a four-day immersion into the heart, soul and taste buds of this charming town.Sam Brannan, California’s first millionaire, was no fool. He arrived in the area in the mid-19th century and had a vision: to milk the natural hot springs of this fertile area and create a spa town. Long before that, the native Wappo people knew of the healing powers of the mineral waters, and Brannan soon cashed in on that knowledge.Calistoga rests at the northern tip of the 35-mile long Napa Valley. About 5,400 residents populate its 2.5 square miles, which are blessed with the perfect micro-climate and mineral rich earth for grape growing. The result: 50 wineries. Mix those natural ingredients with a host of delightful individuals and what you get is a laid-back, homey 50s-feel town with genuine hospitality.

NIGHT #2, BRANNAN COTTAGE INN

The Victorian inn, built by Sam Brannan in 1862, was in sharp contrast to the modern minimalism of Solage, but no the less appealing. Its charm and warmth is matched by that of its hospitality director, Eden Umble. The inn has six rooms, each with hand-designed wall paper, heated bathroom floors and grand old bedsteads. Lilacs plucked from Eden’s garden scented the room, while a 300-year-old tree leaned against the porch just beyond my window. A continental breakfast is served in the piano room, while a mid-afternoon tea is taken in the airy living room awash in warm yellow tones. Eden has teamed with Kathleen Bakula, the high priestess of Mobili-Tea … a mobile high tea service. A variety of teas, sandwiches and sweets are presented with vintage china and linens.

Weekend in Calistoga: Hotels, Spas and Wineries

Nestled in the iconic wine county of northern California, just a little further north of Napa, is the quaint town of Calistoga. The town was originally made famous by the natural hot springs and volcanic mud baths, where locals and vacationers alike would indulge in these relaxing and therapeutic natural resources. However, since that time, Calistoga has continued to grow as a premium travel destination in northern California. Now, more than just hot mud, Calistoga has a number of world class wineries and has well and truly made its mark on the wine industry over the years.

If you’re looking for a break, or simply want to pamper yourself for a weekend away, Calistoga is the place to visit in the Napa Valley. Offering so much more than just a dip in hot volcanic mud, Calistoga is the perfect spot to spend a weekend exploring wineries with friends, indulging in some excellent restaurants or getting away for a romantic weekend.

We cover everything in this Calistoga travel guide, from where to stay and eat, to the best mud baths and wineries for your perfect trip away.

Where to Stay in Calistoga

There is no shortage of excellent places to stay in Calistoga, but if you really want to find the perfect combination of relaxation, comfort and history, then the Brannan Cottage Inn is hands down the best choice in Calistoga. This charming bed and breakfast is operated out of an original Victorian cottage, which was actually built by Calistoga founder Sam Brannan back in the 1860s. It’s one of the first buildings in Calistoga to be recognized by the National Register of Historic Places for its connection to the founding of Calistoga, and the restoration and preservation efforts have ensured it upholds its historical charm.

Walking through the old rooms inside the main building feels kind of like visiting a museum, with old black and white photos adorning the walls and a very classic piano sitting in the entertaining area. The attention to detail on all the fixtures and fittings are impeccable, which give the Brannan Cottage Inn a nostalgic nod to its early days.

brannan inn cottage calistoga

There are 6 rooms available, each intricately unique and special in their own way, from the colorful wallpaper and tile work, to the individual decorations and room arrangement. Any one of these rooms would be a pleasure to stay in, but by far the most luxurious room is the Deluxe King with its gas fireplace, beautiful deck and amazingly comfortable bed. Our time in Calistoga was a little rainy, which made it super cozy to come back to an open fire with our plush robes.

Along with these added luxuries there is also a heated bathroom floor, massive TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime, champagne glasses and a fridge to cool that champagne. The private balcony deck off the front of the room is also a nice leisurely spot to enjoy some morning mimosas, if you’re so inclined!

Located within 5 minutes walking to the center of town, Brannan Cottage Inn is an ideal spot for people that want to experience the local community feeling that Calistoga has to offer. For a town that gets quite a lot of tourism, Calistoga has really maintained a very humble vibe, making visitors feel right has home.

Brannan Cottage Inn is across the road from Indian Springs Resort, where you can also take a dip in the natural hot springs. Right next door to the resort is the delicious restaurant Sam’s Social Club. It’s also just a couple of minutes walk to the center of downtown, where you can find mud baths, hot springs, restaurants and local shops.

Getting Around Calistoga

Another convenient feature of staying at Brannan Cottage Inn is the free Calistoga shuttle that can take you around the main town. It’ll also shuttle you outside of town to nearby wineries, so you don’t have to worry about how to drive home after a few glasses of wine. The Calistoga Shuttle is a ‘call on demand’ service that can pick you up wherever you are and drop you off to locations around Calistoga. You simply dial the number, request a pick up time and swipe your Brannan Cottage Inn card for free access. It’s the perfect option if you’re planning on visiting a winery for the day and want to indulge in a couple of extra reds!

Calistoga Mud Baths and Hot Springs

Before the hip wineries and upscale restaurants became a thing in Calistoga it was all about the famous mud baths. And no trip to Calistoga is complete without a revitalization session in the mud. The emergence of Calistoga’s natural healing resource dates back to ancient volcanic eruptions, coming from nearby Mount Saint Helena, that have made the surrounding soil rich in nutrients and minerals. Long before American settlers arrived in the area in the 1840s, the indigenous Wappo tribe was taking advantage of the healing powers of the northern California hot springs and fertile soil.

The mud alone isn’t particularly appealing, but combine the thick volcanic soil with the natural hot spring water and you get a heated mud bath experience that will relax and rejuvenate any old soul. The best way to experience the healing benefits of the natural elements is to visit one of the many establishments that offer hot mud baths. Roman Spa Hot Springs Resort, located in the middle of town, has a super relaxing experience that everyone should indulge in if visiting Calistoga. The mud is a bit stinky (thanks to the sulfur) but once you get past that it’s a relaxing experience.

best mud baths in northern california

You start by floating in the hot, thick mud for 20 minutes. You strip down to your birthday suit and slowly lower yourself down into the hot mud bath. You’d think, presumably, that you’d sink right into it, kind of like a soup. But the mud is thick, and unless you wriggle into it you just sit suspended on the top. Wriggling around in the mud kind of feels like wadding through quicksand until you hit the bottom of the bath. Moving in the mud is slow and feels a bit like the dreams you have when you’re trying to run, but your legs don’t move fast enough.

It can get pretty hot and a little constricting, but if you take a few deep breaths and relax it’s actually really comfortable being suspended and encased in hot mud. Once your time is up you can wash off all the thick mud that has found its way into every crease and crack on your body…. I mean every crease and crack! Jump in the shower and scrub off before popping into a hot bubble bath to really relax for 20 minutes. After that you can add on a massage to really top off the most relaxing couple of hours you could ask for on a weekend away.

Where to Eat and Drink

Aside from the copious amounts of wineries on offer, giving you plenty of places to drink, Calistoga has a host of delectable restaurants on offer. Right across the road from Brannan Cottage Inn is Sam’s Social Club, named after Calistoga founder Sam Brannan. It’s a charming restaurant that serves up American cuisine. Sam’s is a big open restaurant with warm lighting and a real homely local feel. The meals are massive and a lot of the food is sourced from local farms around the area, so you know it’s fresh. We definitely under-estimated the size of the food here and ordered too much, but it left us with a midnight snack later in the night when we were watching Netflix in our robes.

best restaurant in calistoga sams social club

where to drink calistoga california

For breakfast or lunch be sure to visit Café Sarafornia, which is named after a famous word jumble from Sam Brannan, who didn’t mind a few drinks himself. This is also how Calistoga gets its name. After a few too many, Sam Brannan said he was going to name this area, the Saratoga of California, but drunkenly said, the Sarafornia of Calistoga. Hence, Calistoga got its name, and this super cute diner adopted the iconic name Sarafornia. Food portions are big and well priced, with a good selection of traditional American diner meals on offer. The milkshakes are extra massive; so if you’re two people, definitely split one.

Those looking for a good cup of coffee, make sure you visit Yo El Rey Roasting. Located in the center of town, it’s a boutique coffee roasting house that produces only the best, organically certified coffee from around the world. The owner, an avid coffee connoisseur, also offers roasting demonstrations in the shop on selected nights. If you’re lucky to be there on the night you’ll get to see a local coffee master explain the whole process and science behind roasting, blending and brewing premium coffee. It’s an educational (and delicious) experience for coffe lovers.

where to find best coffee calistoga

The roasting experience pairs well with a tasting from local Olabisi wines, who have a tasting room across the road from Yo El Rey. After getting a nice pick me up from the coffee, drift across the street and listen to some local wine experts tell you about a selection of their reds. Olabisi Winery Tasting Room is a comfortable spot to kick back with a few samples from these experts in the field. They really know wine, and they love telling you about it over a couple of glasses! You’ll come away much more knowledgable about wine, and probably a little tipsy.

Wineries and Romantic Getaways

If it’s a little romance and private time you’re after then Calistoga has you covered. Aside from the gorgeous settings and surroundings of rolling hills and stretches of vineyards, Calistoga has some amazing opportunities to spend special time with your loved ones. Private winery tours, romantic strolls through the vines and a few good bottles of wine are more than enough to set the scene in Calistoga.

For anyone headed to Calistoga, we highly recommend a trip out to Bennett Lane Winery. This gorgeous winery, just a few miles outside of town (accessible by the free shuttle), is an unbelievably picturesque and perfect for wooing that special person. You can start the day off with a wine tasting and tour of the grounds, getting to sample the wines, while learning about the history of the company and the production of wine. For anyone new to the specifics of wine it’s a really great experience to hear about how tiny grapes can turn into something so delicious. Whether you’re a wine newbie or an experienced wino, the lovely staff talk you through all the different flavors and make you really appreciate the complexity of the production.

Knight’s Valley

JUNE 22ND – JUNE 26TH 2017

Join us for a memorable wine getaway featuring access to an elite, private vineyard, rarely open to outsiders. This coveted stretch of land and its glorious vines have been transformed into one of the most prolific vineyards in Napa and Sonoma, yet remains distinctly low-profile. Renowned for its terroir, this Knights Valley winery uses one acre for its own label while the remaining 15 are cultivated by select winemakers such as Luc Morlet.

A fourth generation winemaker whose sensibilities reflect a long cultivated family philosophy of “passion, terroir and savior-faire,” Morlet is one of viticulture’s most exceptional talents. During your tour, you will have the chance to learn more about this exceptional talent—and, to sip on his award-winning, small batch cabernet sauvignon. You’ll also indulge in award-winning wines paired with delicious homemade food pulled from the vintner’s personal kitchen. Served in a spectacular setting with unforgettable views and impeccable wines, this memory will linger in your mind—and on your lips—for a lifetime.

 

Healdsburg

SEPTEMBER 28TH – OCTOBER 2ND

Our second wine experience takes you to a very special, organically farmed vineyard renowned for its luscious, award-winning Cabernet Sauvignon handcrafted with the ultimate expertise and care by legendary winemaker, Thomas Rivers Brown. Since its inaugural vintage, this Dry Creek Valley winery has consistently received high accolades from The Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator and Vinous Media. Elevated 500 feet above the Russian River and overflowing with flora, fauna and amazing wine, this is one of the region’s prettiest and ambitious vineyards, typically not showcased the way our guests will have the opportunity to experience.

The highlight of your journey delivers you to a 75-acre vineyard heavily wooded with Spanish Oaks, Giant Coastal Redwoods and Sequoias. Each of your five senses will come to life as you breath in the land’s rich aromas, and natural and manmade beauty. Take in all its outdoor and indoor beauty, and learn every detail of the elaborate vinification process. Together, we’ll enjoy a leisurely tour of its meticulous and lush property, discovering and discussing every detail of the elaborate vinification process and the region’s unique climate.

Afterward, our hosts will lead us to where we’ll share an organic, family-style meal complete with the winery’s legendary heirloom tomatoes, and, of course, bottles—a few named after one of the owner’s famed Jersey Boys Broadway play. During your visit, you’ll indulge in a once-in-a-lifetime experience, not typically open to the public, joining the harvesting team in one of the most crucial steps in the winemaking process.
