Needed a quick getaway, spent one night, beautiful garden with detached cottages. Greta was great as well as the other guest which made a wonderful morning breakfast experience.

My husband spent our 43rd anniversary with Greta, the innkeeper, at this very quaint and quite B&B. Greta was attentive without being intrusive, gracious, kind and down to earth. We enjoyed her breakfasts which not only looked appetizing but tasted delicious too. Our individual cabin was clean, cozy, comfortable and spacious. Sitting on our deck enjoying the sound of the creek running by and the frogs croaking was music to our ears. The drive to get to this location was beautiful as well. Thank you Greta.
What a pleasure to host a couple who have lived and loved together for so long! Conversation at breakfast was delightful. The wildflowers put on a lovely show for you both.

This is just a great place. It's scrupulously clean, Greta, the owner, made us one of the best breakfasts I've ever had in any B&B, the room is comfy, clean, well appointed...it is the room you want to come back to if you are out and about hiking, which i what I plan to do soon...there's a hot tub. It all works. A very good value, indeed.
It's always a pleasure to host guests who are here to enjoy themselves and what we have to offer. Great hiking is in the area, just a stone's throw from that comfortable cottage. Mt St Helena offers world-class views.

The cabin was perfect. The food was delicious and catered to our tastes. The host (Greta) was warm, welcoming, and a delight. Even our little dog loved the place :-D

The cabin was perfect, the garden was beautiful and the breakfast was fantastic. The care the Innkeeper provides to her guests needs is unsurpassed and the calm peaceful environment is a true gift. Hope to have the opportunity to stay again soon.

This Bed and Breakfast was ABSOLUTELY Wonderful. My fiance and I were in dire need of rest and relaxtion and we definitely received it here. The accommodations were outstanding and Greta was the ultimate host. I didn't mind driving an additional 15 minutes to Calistoga as the setting is gorgeous, serene and the best value I have ever received in the Calistoga vicinity. Thanks Greta.
It's people like you who make this such a rewarding profession. Having you here was a delight!

My friend and I were traveling on a dark and rainy night, and needed a place to stay in Middletown. We discovered the Backyard Garden Oasis on the Internet, and were fortunate to be able to book a room. Upon meeting Greta for the first time, it felt like reuniting with an old friend, and when we got to our cottage, we were pleasantly surprised to discover fresh cut flowers on the dining table, and a warm and inviting electric fireplace / heater warming up the room for us. Every detail was attended to – the rooms were spotless, there were nice, new fluffy towels, pleasant fragrant soaps, shampoo, conditioner and lotions in the large bathroom and shower. The bed was very comfortable, and we even had WiFi and hundreds of TV and music channels for no extra charge. Even the exterior of all the buildings were equipped with soft orange lighting triggered by motion detectors. We did have to drive into town to receive cell phone reception, but it was nice to be able to interact with each other for a change instead of starting at our smart phones. We look forward to many happy returns. Highly recommended!

Great service, beautiful and peaceful surroundings, creative and aesthetically pleasing cottage with private deck, all at a relatively low price. Nearby good restaurants. I highly recommend it.

The cottage was charming, but getting to the location was difficult to get to since it required going up a the mountain on tight roads with lots of twists and turns. This is the perfect place to get away but definitely not a place you want to stay at to go wine tasting in Calistoga in the evening.
The Virgo Cottage is furthest from the parking area and the main house and closest to the waterfall and pond. The cottage overlooks lawns as well as Mt St Helena. It is the most private cottage of the three. A full country breakfast is served at the main house.
The Aquarius Cottage has a private bathroom with a shower large enough for a party! It is closest to the parking area and the main house. The view from the cottage or deck is of the main garden and lawns as well as Mt St Helena. A full breakfast is served at the main house.

What a wonderful life meeting and becoming friends with thousands of people from around the world!
