Restful Stay in Calistoga

5 on July 25, 2016

My husband and I just returned from a trip through the wine country and San Francisco. We loved our stay at Fanny's. The rooms were beautiful and I loved that I could run down the street to the park in the cool mornings and come back to a spot-on gourmet breakfast of French toast one day and frittata the next. We loved our time here.


Great location and delicious breakfasts

Had a lovely 'off season' stay with my wife at Fanny's. Our hostess, Deanna, was there when we arrived at 5pm on a Thursday evening. First B&B that we've stayed at where you chose your room on a 'First come, First Serve' basis, but being off season and mid-week everything was available. All rooms are nearly identical with a Queen bed, chair, dresser, and small private bath. It is cozy, but most homes this age are! Room 6027 appealed to us with its 'hint of Paris' decorations. The location is perfect, only a 3-5 minute walk to center of Calistoga. But the best thing about Fanny's was the breakfasts. In addition to the standard cold items of Fruit, bread/toast & Jelly, yogurt, cereal, O.J., coffee, and tea, Deanna served different hot homemade dish every morning. While we were there we enjoyed a professionally prepared Frittata, French Toast, and Quiche. All of them were filling and delicious!


Comfortable rooms and friendly service

We stayed here during our honeymoon in the Napa Valley. Even though it is at the northern end of the Valley, you are not too far away from the rest of the Valley. There are also plenty of wineries, a few attractions, and some great restaurants in Calistoga. Deanna was a friendly and gracious host. She seemed genuinely interested in our plans for each day and offered some helpful suggestions. Her breakfasts were just what we wanted -- something special without being too heavy. Some of things we ate were french toast, scrambled eggs, blueberry coffee cake muffins with fruit salad, and a southwestern egg scramble. She always had bread out for toasting, along with some fresh whole fruit. We are both tea drinkers and were quite happy with her assortment of teas. Our room was tastefully decorated. The sink and shower in the bathroom had reliable hot water. The bed was firm enough for a good night's sleep. There were enough outlets so that we could charge our electronic devices at night. If we are in Calistoga again for a future vacation, we will definitely consider a return trip to Fanny's.


Fanny's in Calistoga

This was a very conveniently located b&b in Calistoga with a quiet, quaint atmosphere. The front porch was lovely, and the shady hammock was even better. And the breakfast (cooked by the owner) was better than any breakfast you could get at any restaurant in Calistoga or the surrounding areas -- seriously impressive and delicious. My only complaints are that the floors are so squeaky in the rooms that it sounds like a siren in the middle of the night if you have to get up for any reason. Also, the plumbing left something to be desired -- our second day there, we woke up to remnants of sewage in the shower from a septic back up problem. Needless to say, we skipped our showers that day.


Amazing Breakfast

3.2 on May 09, 2015

This little B&B nestled in residential Calistoga is notable for its amazing breakfasts, but tiny rooms. Because of the roof structure, all the rooms have portions with ultra-low (perhaps 4 feet) ceilings. Amenities are minimal. The innkeeper is a former restaraunteur and breakfasts were fabulous.


Wonderful B&B

We have stayed at Fanny's several times over years. Always the best. The breakfast that is prepared for the guests is fantastic and the owner is a very friendly and gracious host.


Charm, Location and Delicious Breakfast.

Our San Francisco friends had recommended Fanny's and the four of us enjoyed two charming rooms upstairs with a lovely sitting area with fireplace that we all shared. One other couple from Wisconsin had returned for their second visit rounding out the guests. The large, lovely craftsman is two blocks from Calistoga's center. The owner is a fantastic chef and breakfast shouldn't be missed. Arrive hungry as she offers several items and all are made from scratch.
