Best Find

4.6 on August 23, 2017

We found this place listed under B&B's in the area. Just the best find! Not only is this house a charmer, the stay was quiet and pleasant. Easy walk to the quaint downtown of Calistoga. They served a great breakfast and special treats in the room and wine in the great room each evening. The room was large....a very comfortable king bed....a shaded patio to sit and read. Short drives to many wineries. We highly recommend this place!


Charming Inn and host with truly wonderful food!

Excellent hosts, lovely room, beautiful breakfasts and walking distance to everything in downtown Calistoga. Couldn't have asked for more during our two-night getaway. Many thanks, Gillian!


A great B&B!!!!!!

We were looking for a quiet get away and found it at the Craftsman Inn. Breakfast was excellent. The total home experience was great. The staff were very friendly and made you feel right at home. We walked to dinner a block away from Inn. We would definitely come back again. Jack & Judy Hodges, Sacramento, CA


Family stay at the Craftsman Inn

3.6 on June 28, 2016

Friendly bed and breakfast in the very charming town of Calistoga. Walking distance to the main and only street in the town with lovely restaurants and wine tasting outlets. The tourist information centre is really helpful. They suggested vineyards to visit close to the town and have 2 for 1 wine tasting vouchers.


Convenient location

4.4 on April 07, 2016

The inn is located within walking distance to all the restaurants down town and was therefore very convenient. The room itself was beautiful but the inn is on a busy street and our room was facing the street and there was quite a bit of street noise. You can also hear noises coming from the next room and from upstairs especially when people are walking on the creaky floors (it's an old house). The bed was too soft for my liking. The best part was the breakfast - it's fabulous. Our host was fantastic as well.


Charming B&B with AMAZING breakfast

4.4 on January 09, 2016

We stayed at Craftsman over New Years and it was the perfect get away. The house is charming, with beautiful craftsman detailing throughout. There's a front porch and back veranda for afternoon/evening wine sipping (which they provide complementary) - we didn't take advantage of this due to chilly Dec weather but would another time of year. There are freshly baked cookies in your room when you arrive and plush bathrobes for both guests. The best part however is their homemade breakfast served daily at the communal table downstairs. It's absolutely delicious - muffins, eggs, oatmeal, yogurt, spiced apples, and more - all homemade including the yogurt. Plus champagne + OJ for mimosas, coffe, juice...the works. It's an intimate and wonderful experience. Id go back any day, though would like warmer weather to take advantage of their romantic back patio area.


The breakfasts are first class

3.6 on August 26, 2015

This inn is comfortable and located easy walking distance to restaurants and downtown. The rooms are comfortable and not excessively noisy, but be aware that the location is near an intersection of two highways. The outstanding feature here are the breakfasts. No effort is spared there.


Great experience!!!

5 on November 10, 2014

This was a pleasant surprise, we did two nights here and the area and accommodations were fantastic. We stayed in the Helena room and it had a double bath. I'm not really into baths, but it was fun to take a bath with my lady and we had great conversations and footrubs in there!!!! We discovered that taking a bath together was a great way to spend quality time. Breakfast was great both mornings. We had dinner at JoLe just down the street. Great happy hour and the octopus is fantastic, as is the venison and the lamb neck. The feeling you get is that everything is very private and well taken care of... I will definitely go back to this one.


A Short & Sweet Getaway

4.2 on November 20, 2013

We had a lovely time at the Craftsman, a much needed weekend getaway. The highlight is definitely Gillian's breakfast spread - it's INCREDIBLE and mouthwatering Delicious! I would come back just for her meals. The rooms were comfortable, clean and cozy. : ) The property is a quaint walk to downtown. One night while enjoying a tasty meal at Brannan's we discovered August Briggs, a local Calistoga wine. We had a bottle of Zin and learned they have a Wine Tasting shop across the street. Of course, the next day I went over and stocked up. Yummy! Thanks Gillian & Nick for the hospitality!


Wonderful Breakfast!

4.2 on November 20, 2013

We had a wonderful stay at the Craftsman Inn. Centrally located and very easy to get anywhere in Calistoga. The breakfasts were wonderful, Juillian is an outstanding cook!
