A 2014 renovation injected glamour and vintage-yet-modern style into this small inn whose centerpiece is an 1860s cottage from Calistoga’s original spa era. Stained oak floors, wainscoting, and retro bathroom fixtures recall Victorian times, period electrical switch plates and ornate wallpaper the flapper era. Contemporary comfort is the innkeepers’ ultimate goal, though. The beds have plush mattresses and high-thread-count sheets, and rooms are equipped with large flat-screen TVs, electronics charging stations, and shiny new Illy coffee machines. Green touches abound, most visibly in the LED lighting throughout the property. A tall palm, even taller twin cypresses, and an elm tree thought to be 300 years old shade the inn.
