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.

Terrific spot in Calistoga

4.2 on July 13, 2017

Just spent a long weekend in Napa Valley and made Luxe Calistoga (now Embrace) our home base. What a great spot! Location is good for traveling around Napa, rooms were comfortable, clean and well-appointed, our hosts provided expert advice on wineries & restaurants and, breakfast each day was remarkable. Highly recomended.


Extraordinaire Hosts

4.8 on May 02, 2017

From the moment you arrive at Luxe Calisoga, you are pampered with impeccable service and wonderful food. Multi-course breakfasts await you and wine, cheese, fruit and nuts are daily served from 5-7p.m. The innkeepers also provide a wealth of information about activities and restaurants. As a frequent guest of B and B's, I highly recommend the Luxe Calistoga for the ultimate inn experience.

Our favorite haven

5 on April 29, 2017

We were lucky enough to make it back to Luxe the first week in April. We had stumbled upon this treasure about 5 years ago. The memories of lazy mornings on the porch with a sumptuous breakfast, exploring wine country and regrouping on the porch with our excellent hosts brought us back. On the way there, I wondered if I was romanticizing our previous trip...could it really be that good? The answer is yes! From the moment we arrived back at Luxe, it was like being embraced by a warm, comforting dream. The weather was warm and perfect, the mountains and hills green from all of the winter rains. The property was as exquisite as we remembered - it feels more like a beautiful room at a friends house than a 'hotel'. Private, well decorated, quiet. Breakfast was so good it ruined me for meals until dinner. But, what really made our visit special was the great company and caring shown by Chris and Brent. They truly enjoy life, and do whatever they can to ensure their guests do as well. They gave us great advice about local wineries, things to do, etc. We feel like we've made some new friends in the Calistoga valley and we can't wait to see them again. If you are looking for a great, romantic couples getaway or a fun girls weekend, or an adult family reunion, I highly recommend Luxe! Tell the boys we said hello! - Suzanne & Brian from San Diego

Wonderful stay!

5 on March 31, 2017

My husband and I stayed at the Luxe Calistoga in mid March with some friends who had never been to the Napa Valley, and we could not have asked for a better place. We were treated like family and enjoyed everything: the comfortable room, the delicious wine and cheese and charcuterie in the evenings (and the conversation to go with it), and the delicious breakfasts each morning. Chris and Brent are wonderful hosts. We will be back.

One of the highlights of our Napa Valley travels!

5 on March 15, 2017

You will feel totally indulged and catered to at this charming B&B, ideally located at the end of Calistoga's main street. From the beautiful guest rooms, to the wonderful & inviting wrap-around front porch, to the delectable 4-course breakfast, to the sumptuous afternoon wine & cheese tasting, to the charming & entertaining hosts (owners Chris & Brent)... it was more than wonderful! Our stay was perfect in every way. We will most definitely stay here again when we return to Calistoga.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review and we are happy to hear that you loved your Luxe Embrace! We'll be here...so hurry back! Until then, Safe travels!

The best B&B experience ever!

5 on March 13, 2017

There is no where else I would want to stay after this fabulous weekend we spent at Luxe Calistoga! If you are looking for a B&B that is warm, welcoming with every creature comfort imaginable, serves the most incredible four course breakfast to die for, makes the perfect recommendations for dinner and wineries and sends you off with a snack bag for the day, and then hosts wine & cheese tastings from 5-7pm everyday with new friends and lively conversation - then this is the place for you. It seems to attract people who enjoy meeting others, as Chris and Brent are the perfect hosts who bring everyone together on their beautiful front porch and you feel like you're with your new best friends. If all of that doesn't make you want to go, then maybe you shouldn't and that leaves more room for those of us who are going back soon! See you as soon as we can get back out there Chris and Brent!

Fantastic weekend

5 on March 09, 2017

Chris and Brent couldn't have been more welcoming. We came up with a couple of friends for a weekend getaway and it was perfection from beginning to end. Pampered from the moment we walked up the steps to the porch where we were greeted with wine and charcuterie - we don't remember the last time we had such an enjoyable and relaxing trip! Chris and Brent are delightful and the food was spectacular. We look forward to returning again!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your review and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay! We look forward to seeing you again on the porch the next time you come to Napa Valley!

Look no further, this is the place!

5 on February 25, 2017

Luxe is the best B&B experience we have ever had! Brent and Chris are the most delightful and thoughtful hosts. It starts with the beautifully decorated rooms with luxurious linens and toiletries, an amazing 4 course breakfast that is beyond any foodies dreams, then perfect recommendations for wineries or restaurants to suit your preferences, and the best afternoon gathering on their lovely wrap around porch with great local wines and a charcuterie plate and new best friends, they are simply the best at doing what they love! We won't stay anywhere else after meeting these two.

The best B&B experience ever!

5 on February 22, 2017

As I'm sitting here eating my yogurt this morning in my office, I'm dreaming of the next breakfast course that Brent and Chris will be featuring this morning. Damn, the trip is over but the memories linger on.... We just had the most amazing long weekend at Luxe Calistoga. Despite the daily rain, we had the best trip I've ever experienced at a B&B. These guys are the most fun, laugh until you cry, delightful hosts ever. The breakfasts are just over the top and the afternoon complimentary wine and charcuterie plate were one of the highlights of the day. It was not only the food, but the warm and inviting Chris and Brent who bring everyone into the group. And before you know it - you have a bunch of new friends. We wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else! Love this place and those guys!
