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.

Enchanting B&B

5 on October 03, 2017

By far the most personable and inviting B&B we have stayed in. Brent and Chris are what makes Embrace Calistoga such an unique experience, from the smallest details, like the delicious chocolates hand made in Napa Valley, placed on the night stand, to the incredible breakfast, thoughtfully prepared snacks to go and wine pairing on the deck in the evening. We can't wait to be back in December. Stella and Dave

Memorable visit to Embrace Calistoga

5 on August 21, 2017

We just wish we could have stayed longer than two nights. So, we will definitely return. We had the most wonderful memorable vacation at Embrace Calistoga and not just because the inn is such a beautiful and clean place (thanks Maria), but because Chris and Brent made the experience exceptional. They made us feel welcome and comfortable. They shared recommendations about the area and made the best breakfasts we have ever had (no exaggeration - you simply have to see their culinary creations for breakfast!) Sharing wine and cheese in the evenings on the beautiful porch was a memorable and enjoyable experience. Chris and Brent have a passion for the inn and the area, the restaurants and wineries. Thanks for a great holiday experience!

Warm and refined B&B

5 on July 27, 2017

This is an oustanding place to stay for a few days. We unfortunately stayed one night per our schedule. The hosts are very attentive to your needs. The wine and cheese is set so as to meet other guests in a friendly setting. The highlight of the stay is the breakfast, which is uncommon to say the least, copious and of high quality. Congrats to Chris and Brent!

Thank you for your review! Until next time, safe travels!

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.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your high recommendation! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope we see you next time you are traveling to Napa Valley!

The Best B&B Hands Down

5 on May 15, 2017

Stayed at this location the week of 5/8/17 Brent & Chris run a first class operation. They even make the breakfast with the customer dietary needs in mind. Each meal is different from the day before which is so cool. Cable TV is in the rooms, with me being a sports person this was a big plus (smile). Luxe is the perfect location for just relaxing with a staff that plays a large part in making sure that happens. We will be coming back for a stay whenever we need to get away!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for staying with us and also sharing your review. We'll be here when you need to "get-a-way"!

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.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that if you are ever back in Napa Valley you will come stay with us again!

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.

We appreciate you taking the time to write and post your review and love to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Until next time....safe travels!
