The Top Reasons to Book a Calistoga Hotel for Your Pre-Holiday Staycation


Before the holiday season gets into full swing, sneak off for an actual vacation at Brannan Cottage Inn!

We understand that just because you have a few days off for the holidays doesn’t mean they are necessarily a “vacation.” But we can help! Here are our top reasons you should plan a little staycation with us before holiday obligations at home take over your life entirely.

Cuddle up in the coziest guest rooms in all of Calistoga.

You deserve a guest experience where you feel like you’re staying with friends. Your staycation should be nothing but relaxing and peaceful, which is the experience we give to all of our guests. Staying in one of our six guest rooms is an experience like you’ve never had before. Even if you’ve stayed with us in the past, we are always improving on the in-room experience so you’ll just have to come in and see for yourself what’s waiting. All of the rooms are equipped with modern amenities that will bring you the comforts of home while maintaining the old classic charm of our historic property. Crackling fireplaces, the most delicious in-room coffee, fluffy spa robes, and so much more will make your pre-holiday staycation a new annual tradition.

Experience “living history” by staying in one of Sam Brannan’s original famous Calistoga cottages.

Even if you’re not going far from home, your staycation should feel like you’re in a whole different town or even decade. Don’t worry — we have all of the modern amenities you could ever want to feel comfortable, but the historic significance of our property is something you cannot find anywhere else. This is the original property of the cottage, and it’s the last cottage (Cottage 7 of 14) on its original property. The energy is different here. You feel truly connected with the land, the property, and the people. History buffs love visiting the local Calistoga Historical museum, which our concierge can help you coordinate as well.

Head out wine tasting to our favorite local wineries and bring home some bottles that will impress all of your holiday guests.

If you’re local to Calistoga, you already know this — but we are one of the most supportive communities you’ll ever experience. Supporting local business is a value that’s very important to us, and our concierge is happy to recommend local wineries that are producing some of the best wines that Napa has to offer. Beyond wine, we are centrally located downtown so you can get some holiday shopping done, too! Stock up on local art, jewelry, candles, books, decor, and anything else you can imagine!
