Reasons to Enjoy a Calistoga Spa Day Before the Holiday Hustle

Come treat yourself to an authentic Calistoga hot springs experience before the out-of-towners arrive.

The holidays are here which, for most of us, means jam-packed schedules full of family, friends, gift-buying, entertaining, and errands — lots and lots of errands. Before things get too crazy for you, why not book a stay at Brannan Cottage Inn for some R&R? You’ll feel refreshed and energized so you can be prepared to show up and be the best host out there. Here are some of our favorite ways to kick back and relax in and around our historic property.


Become calm and focused now so the holiday season won’t overwhelm you later.

The holidays are a fun time, but they can also bring up a lot of drama, stress, and anxiety. While we all try to just keep the peace and keep smiles on our faces, stress is stress and it can be a lot to handle. By giving yourself some time to find your “zen,” chill out, rest, and relax before the holiday, you’re more likely to be able to focus on all the joy and happiness of the season. While you’re here, you might want to book that New Year’s recovery spa day, too.

Give yourself a little detox from too much extra holiday cheer.

Office parties, extra happy hours, get-togethers with neighbors and friends … the list goes on and seems to never end during this time of year. This is Napa, after all, so we obviously appreciate exquisite wines and delectable culinary fare, but if you’re feeling like it’s been a little “too much” lately, booking a spa day or spa weekend is a perfect way to give yourself a little detox. The fabulous spas in our area offer everything from massages, to mud baths, to rejuvenating facials. These customized wellness experiences also include our famous hot springs.

Let our concierge do all the planning.

Whether you’re a Napa Valley native or you’re visiting us from a different city or state, we’ll do all the heavy lifting for you. Just plan a time to chat with one of our concierges and let them know what your likes and dislikes are when it comes to a relaxing spa retreat. We are extremely familiar with all of the local spas and hot springs, so we will be able to recommend an experience that fits your personality perfectly. Continue the R&R right into your guest room where we can have a comfy robe waiting, the fire going (in select rooms), and your favorite bottle of wine ready to enjoy. Contact us today to book your room and let the spa day planning begin.
