About

Reinventing the Bed & Breakfast experience, Embrace Calistoga is the new look and feel of Napa Valley wine country lodging. Yesterday meets Today: New in style - Old in charm and grace. The philosophy is a blend of old world luxury and 21st century amenities and technology. Antiques co-exist with modern design to create a harmonious blend of comfort and elegance. Built in 1873, the European-style luxury inn is located in the heart of Calistoga. Sit on the porch and watch the world pass by or take a stroll through this historical and quintessential wine country town. Nothing is out of reach...the only limit is your schedule and imagination. Calistoga and the Napa Valley are well known for great food and great wine, but there is so much more to do in this oasis. As an adult destination, the Napa Valley has many of things that you come to expect like golf courses, unique shopping and spectacular views and vistas. Outdoor activities are abundant and include balloon rides, hiking, biking, horseback riding, historical tours and race cars. Are you more of the indoor type? How does a cooking demonstration sound or a culinary tour or an unusual art gallery? We offer full concierge service to help make your escape fit you. Luxuriously romantic, the inn was created for adults to relax, rejuvenate and nurture relationships - the perfect Napa Valley escape getaway. Eat, Experience, Enjoy and Embrace.

THE BEST

5 on May 08, 2018

We've enjoyed the company of the Innkeepers Chris and Brent for the last 5 years. We love the ambiance, the company, and the grace and elegance of these two true gentleman. Their joy in what they do translates into even the smallest detail, the wine and cheese is the perfect end to a day in wine country and the 5-course (yes I said 5) breakfasts served never cease to amaze in their creativity, beauty and they are incredibly delicious as are Chris and Brent. Stan and I will see you again soon!

We highly recommend Embrace

My wife and I just spent a long weekend at Embrace with Chris and Brent. They are wonderful hosts, spoiled us rotten with great food, and made us feel like part of their family. They provided the perfect setting for great breakfast, enjoying wine and conversation on the patio, and spending time together. Can’t speak highly enough of these gentlemen and the beautiful inn that they run. John and MN

Amazing Stay

5 on April 19, 2018

I can not say enough about Embrace and the owners Chris and Brent! We just recently spent my birthday weekend in Calistoga, and will now have Embrace as our "go to" lodging for the Napa Valley. The welcoming wrap around porch, the wine and cheese afternoons on the porch with awesome conversations and abundant laughter, and the scrumptious four course breakfasts, as well as the well appointed guest rooms, are only a part of why one should stay at Embrace. Chris and Brent have given so much to every detail of the B & B that their guests feel so special; they are a huge part of why staying at Embrace is such a wonderful experience. We truly felt that "we arrived as guests and left as friends". I look forward to returning soon!

THE BEST

5 on April 11, 2018

My wife & I have been staying at Embrace Calistoga for 7 years & it has always been over the top. The gourmet breakfast is like nothing I have ever had anywhere else. The afternoon wine & cheese is spectactacular. The inn is beautiful. The best part though is the innkeepers themselves. They make you feel like you are in paradise.

Innkeeper Response
Over the past 7 years, we look forward every tim you come to stay with us...it is like seeing and catching us with old friends! Thank you for being part of the "Embrace Family"...see you next month!

Calistoga gem

5 on April 08, 2018

Loved our stay with Brent and Chris—everything from the wine and cheese on the porch in the afternoon to the four-course breakfast in the morning was thoughtful, meticulously prepared, and just plain beautiful. Walking to the restaurants and shops of downtown Calistoga—just steps from the our front door—was an added bonus. Chris and Brent are warm, friendly, unpretentious, and hilarious—the best hosts I can possibly imagine!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for staying with us and also your review! Love hearing that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again the next time you are in Napa Valley! Until then, safe travels!

Anniversary

4.8 on March 28, 2018

Everything met or exceeded our expectations. We felt as if we were their first guests ever, and that even includes the housekeeper who went above and beyond her duty to accomodate us. The wine and cheese gathering in the evening was exceptional from others as we felt like family both with the guests and the hosts. Breakfast was exceptional and made/served when you were ready - not pre-prepared. A truly great experience.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so for staying with us and also taking the time to write you review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope that we will see you again the next time you are in the beautiful Napa Valley!

The Best B & B in Napa Valley!!!

5 on March 19, 2018

This is a Gorgeous Victorian B & B, totally authentic, with a wide wrap-around covered Patio for a wonderfull (included) gourmet breakfast and wine & cheese afternoon delight (also included), and the two owners are totally gracious and will become your best friends! And, they know all the Wineries (and restaurants) in NAPA Valley and have a world of information they share with you during your stay. But, book early as it fills up quickly! 10 out of 10 In Our trip book!! :-)

Simply the Best B&B

5 on February 22, 2018

Wow! My wife and I stayed here over a 3-day weekend. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning is spectacular and innovative. The wine and cheese hour on the porch is inviting and comfortable. The location is great (walking distance to everything in downtown Calistoga). Most of all Chris & Brent (the owners) are so fun, gracious, friendly, and accommodating! You will not be disappointed! :)

Wonderful place

4.6 on January 04, 2018

Brent and Chris are a hoot. They are warm and friendly and fun to be around. Their breakfasts were spectacular!! Great location. Easy to walk to many good restaurants. Our room was just on the small side that is the only negative we have. We would certainly stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for staying with us and your review! Glad you enjoyed your experience and we hope to see you the next time you are in Wine Country! Cheers!
