I stayed 5 nights and it was like being at home but better. Million dollar views, hiking and beautiful property close to town, yet quiet enough to hear the tree frogs off your own private deck overlooking the valley. Debbie the owner is such a warm caring person and I'm coming back.

I hadn't planned to spend the night in the Calistoga area but I was too tired to make it home. I tried a couple of numbers and was referred to the Hillcrest Inn. Arriving around 8:oo in the evening I was delighted as I stepped into the entry way surrounded by antiques. As I crossed throught the dining room I saw that the beautiful long table was gloriously set for 20 people, silver sugar and creamers on trays, goblets and beautiful plates, silver napkin rings, I thought to myself this looks fit for a queen. I was warmly greeted by Debi, who gave me a robe and showed me the jacuzzi and pool and directed me to my cabin. The furniture was a bit scarce, but the shower was hot, the towels clean and the bed which had a lovely canopy was comfortable. It was quiet and the air was clean. In the morning I saw that the property needed some cleaning up, but the view of the valley, the delicious breakfast and the sweetness of our hostess made me feel I'd like to come back for a week when I can.

We Just stayed there this last weekend and I have to tell you, the view alone is worth the price. It was simply breathtaking. The house is old and filled with family antiques which we enjoyed talking with the owner Debbie about the history of the house and her family. The house is a family heritage and was very apparent that the house was a part of Debbie. We also have 2 boxers that were able to run around the property at ease. This made us very happy and relaxed. It is often very hard to find places that are able to have dogs and be very happy to have them. The breakfast was wonderful, our room was clean and had a view for us to enjoy that was outstanding. Although the house did seem to be of need of repairs it did not take away from the warm hospitable presence that Debbie provided for us. We will be back to this special place that just transports you back in time filled with family legacy.

I just returned from my stay in Calisoga and I MISS Hillcrest. If you want an over priced, fussy, pristine, unfriendly place to stay... this B&B is not for you. Its kind of quirky and its got TONS of character, Debbie and her husband are warm and kind...their 2 dogs always greeted me and you can totally kick back or walk around the gorgeous propery overlooking the valley. I traveled there alone and felt really comfortable. good sleep, hot shower and hot coffee. fine with me.

My husband and I stayed in the Shangra-La room for 3 nights. We thought it was great. True, the floor slopes, but that didn't ruin our stay in the least. The property was great for the dogs, they loved the pond and even warmed up to Debbie's dogs, Debo and Arthur. The place was charming and quirky. I knew what we were getting in to when I made the reservations. The breakfast in the mornings was good and we were able to meet and talk to people that were very very friendly. If we ever do another trip like this, we will definitely stay here.
