Charming B and B in Calistoga

3.6 on October 27, 2015

Brennan Cottages is centrally located- an easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants. The rooms are very tastefully decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable. The place was spotless! The breakfast of muffins, pastries and first rate coffee was yummy. Best of all, the staff was great! They were always helpful, giving directions, making reservations for wine tastings, etc.


Outstanding care and service at the Brannan Cottage Inn

We spent a couple of nights here with my parents who were celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary. We were looking for a place that would be festive, elegant and fitting for this special occasion. We could not have chosen a better spot. We were pampered and taken care of with so much grace and generosity..! The hotel is a real gem, minutes from downtown Calistoga but tucked away on a quiet street. The rooms and hotel design were immaculate, and we loved hanging out in the little garden courtyard under the trees. Eden and Kathleen attended to our various special requests, and went out of their way to make us comfortable in a genuine, friendly, caring way. Our stay was the highlight of our trip to Napa, and was exactly what a 5-star experience should be! We hope to return soon :)


Exceptional property and service!

This is our 3rd stay at Brannan Cottage. We are very picky and clean freaks, and this property lives up to our expectations. Eden, whom runs this establishment, goes out of her way to accommodate all of our needs, from setting up tastings, to transportation and fine restaurants. You will love it here and we will always come back.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Brannan Cottage Inn. The Inn is very beautiful and Doug constantly strives to add thoughtful touches. He also scheduled our winery and massages!

Lovely place to stay in Calistoga

My husband and I have stayed here a couple of times now and will definitely return. Doug and Judy are wonderful hosts. Breakfasts were delicious and we were pleasantly suprised by the sparkling wine left for us in our room. Looking forward to our next get-away to the Brannan Cottage Inn. Denise, from San Francisco


Wine Visit Base Unit

4.2 on August 31, 2012

Highly recommended for location, hospitality, and value. We visited over a weekend plus a day on either side. We made the Inn our base camp. It was ideally suited and situated for our wine tastings. We did loops of Sonoma and Napa as long but reasonable day trips. We enjoyed the hospitality of Doug and Judy's historic location. The yard is a great place to relax and we had dinner in the garden with entree's from the grocery store two blocks away. Doug provided dishes for us to use and the perfect atmosphere was built in. On the down side, the building is old and creaky. Quite nice and stately, but it might surprise someone used to new hotels. If you think of it as grandma's house you can appreciate the history. Doug also was happy to share info and suggestions for dining and winery's. The hosted a wine tasting in the garden as well as snacks with it. It was great.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for staying with us and providing a complete review of your stay. We think you did exactly what we wish our guests would do--stay with us in a location convenient to all surrounding "wine countries" (you didn't make it to Mendocino or Lake Counties) and take adventage of the comfortable, relaxing atmosphere at the Inn. The "creaky" part--yep, the main building is over 150 years old!--but we do have modern amenities (WIFI, TVs with DVD players, refrigerators in each room, etc.). Glad you enjoyed your stay--come back soon!
