The lodging facilities consist of five units, four are in the main house and one in a detached cottage. A spa and the swimming pool are available for use by all guests. A full breakfast, comprised of local fresh foods, is served in the morning in a central dining area. We are solar powered, with 10,000 watts of renewalble energy.

Coming home to longtime friends

4.6 on August 20, 2014

This was our second stay at the Bear Flag Inn. Dennis' and Marge's (the innkeepers') hospitality and warmth is absolutely unmatched; it feels like coming to visit with longtime friends. For the duration of your stay, they make you feel like family! And their fresh-cooked hot breakfast in the conservatory is a dream... can't wait to return!

Hosts make a B&B experience

I give the Bear Flag Inn a high rating because I so much enjoyed sharing the home of our hosts. They are so gracious. We stayed in the cottage with our doggie and it is very comfortable. The highlight of each morning is breakfast in the solarium with the other guests. Marge and Dennis prepare a great meal every morning. Lazy summer afternoons enjoying wine from a vineyard on the grounds and conversation with people from around the world. It is what I expect in a B&B!

Amazing Stay!

My husband and I couldn't have been happier! We spend our honeymoon here less than a week ago, and we made the BEST decision to do so! The food was outstanding, Dennis & Marjorie were a delight to talk and spend morning with! They went over and beyond and we highly recommend Bear Flag Inn to everyone staying in Calistoga. The location was a short drive to main street and easy access on the main road to Old Faithful Geyser, Castillo di Amarosa, and heading out of town. My husband and I plan to come back again, we were so pleased with our stay!

Nice and Quiet

3.8 on August 03, 2014

We spent two nights at the Bear Flag. The Innkeepers Marge and Dennis, are very friendly. In the afternoon, they served wine from the grapes growing in the front yard -- and it was excellent! The breakfasts were healthy, filling and tasty, and the Innkeepers were happy to adjust what they served to our vegetarian diet. When the Innkeepers learned it was our anniversary, they snuck a bottle of champagne into our room while we were out at dinner. So thoughtful! Our only complaint was the very squeaky bed. I had trouble sleeping, as every time I moved even a little bit, it squeaked!

Friendly and Fabulous

4.0 on August 02, 2014

We stayed at the Bear Flag Inn in April 2014 and found it warm and friendly and set the stage for a pleasant and relaxing weekend in Calistoga. Marge and Dennis were great hosts, joining all the guests in conversation during the evening cocktail hour and creating a fantastic breakfast in the morning. The room was comfortable and the location was convenient for exploring the area.

Hosts Make The Difference

4.6 on July 30, 2014

Earlier this month we spent four days at the Bear Flag, a really superb place to nest when you're in Calistoga. Away from the traffic and nitter-natter of downtown, but close enough to walk in, if you want. About 100 yards off the highway, behind their own wine vineyard (their wine is really top shelf, too). Dennis and Marge are cordial, laid-back, and attentive to their guests. Breakfast is served at 9:00 a.m. and the food and setting are nothing less than Ritz Carlton.

Can't wait to return

There are a lot bed and breakfasts in the Napa Valley area and I am so glad we stayed here!! Marge and Dennis are great hosts and we feel fortunate to have met them! From the incredible breakfast everyday to the wine and snacks in the afternoon we were spoiled from the start. The pool was heavenly in the warm afternoon (especially with a glass of wine!) and the house is nestled among vineyards and beautiful flowering trees. There's a shuttle to take you to town if you don't want to drive. I would stay here again in heartbeat and recommend it to anyone who asks!!

A memory was made

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary in Wine Country and we really struck gold with the Bear Flag Inn. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts made by Marge, Dennis, and Marge's daughter. In the afternoon, we enjoyed local wines and meeting George and Rosemary (residents of Calistoga). If you get a chance, ask Rosemary about her experiences working with Mother Theresa. Our experience was so pleasant that we will be frequent visitors to The Bear Flag Inn.

Bear Flag Inn is a great Calistoga B&B!
