"First year anniversary"
We spent 3 nights in the Helena room and our stay was fantastic. The Helena room has a 2 person jacuzzi and a rain shower!!! There are even fresh cookies and a bottle of Sherry on one of the nightstands. Breakfast is server 830 - 9 and is amazing. The selection of food was excellent and it was probably the best breakfast I have ever had at a B&B.Genuine Expedia guest review
Gillian was a wonderful host, and the Inn did not disappoint! The Calistoga area is so adorable and laid back in contrast to Napa. We only wish we had more time!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little inn"
This was a lovely historic property near all the amenities of downtown Calistoga. Wonderful spaces to relax both indoors (a main living room area open to all) and outdoors on various patios. We appreciated that breakfast was served family style, so you could choose what (and more importantly how much) you eat. Only comfort-related issue we had is that […] the floorboards of the Howell Room were a bit squeaky - we viewed it as part of the the charm of an older property, but if you're noise-sensitive you might consider aiming for an upstairs room. Loved the flexibility of the innkeepers - we were grateful when we were able to book this stay a few hours before arrival, and they were very accommodating in leaving us instructions on how to access our room after hours (I am glad we called after making the online reservation.) Definitely recommend this as a base for the hiking, biking, and sightseeing options on the northern edge of the Napa Valley. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
a beautiful bed and breakfast, a real treat but no sidewwalk outside and two gas stations across the street. It was easy to walk into the little town of calistogaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"...a serendipitous find!..."
We were greeted warmly by the owner and enjoyed a comfy stay in the 'Spring Room.'Genuine Expedia guest review
"Calistoga is a gem!"
We loved Calistoga. So cute and close to so much. Great for a short get away from the city. We will be returning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay at Calistoga"
Very pleasant, comfortable, better ventilation in the room would have made it even better! Short stroll to town restaurants makes the location good. Hosts very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central to Calistoga and wine country"
What a wonderful surprise! Large room, quiet, great amenities and fabulous breakfast. Greeted with sherry and cookies in the evening, woken with delicious aromas of coffee and great homecooked food. We will be back.Genuine Expedia guest review
We wanted to be in the northern part of Napa Valley; this was ideal location for our needs. FABULOUS breakfasts; hostess was wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Wine Country Value"
I'm not the biggest fan of B&Bs but this one is cozy and offers more privacy than most. The owners are gracious, thoughtful hosts. The only issue with the room was a noisy air conditioner unit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"first bed and breakfast"
Had a wonderful time. The couple that run the B&B were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic. The only issue is the noise from the street was a little loud at night.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great B & B"
We enjoyed the B and B, the owners were very nice, the place was very quaint. Upon arrival there were cookies in the room with Sherry and in the sitting room there were two wines, chocolates and more. Breakfast was awesome, that woman can cook! Interesting talking to the other guests.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Non-chain hotel close to SFO"
Small hotel with a restaurant less than 4 miles from SFO. Comfortable room. Continental breakfast (basic choices ordered from menu the night before) delivered to the room. Pleasant location -- sits on the water overlooking a local marina and the Bay. Easy access to airport. Excellent choice for late flight arrival or a night before morning departur […] e.

"Great place in Calistoga"
Went there for our anniversary and the Craftsmen Inn exceeded our expectations. Gillian was a fantastic host.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Love the Craftsman Inn!!"
I highly recommend this Inn! The staff was very friendly and helpful and it was a very cool, laid back atmosphere. At first there was no one there to even let us in but once we found the number to call, they were great and upgraded our room for free!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay again"
Everyone was lovely to me, I truly felt like a guest in their home. I was allowed to get my keys early which was a huge help with my plans for check-in day. Breakfast each day was very good. My room was quite large, comfortable and clean. The only small issue with it was a little hole in the window that had cardboard and duct tape over it which looked […] as if it had been there for years. However, I would definitely stay there again and also recommend it to friends. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We had a wonderful time, the room was nice and clean, the jacuzzi tub was wonderful and breakfasts buy Gillian are to die for.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice B&B, but roadnoise and noise from other rooms"
This is a nice place and we enjoyed our stay, but for the price, I am sure you can find locations that have more isolation between the rooms than this old houseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"okay, but not value for money"
Nice room with lovely bathroom, but not considered as value for money. Quite limited breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This was our first experience of staying in an USA "B&B", and we were so impressed .We felt like we were in a 5 star boutique hotel.The decor in our room,the Diamond room,was just lovely.The property is in a fabulous position right across the road from the main street in Calistoga.The breakfasts were special,you could taste the passion and care Gillian and her team invest in to making breakfasts a taste sensation every time.In fact we had to buy Gillians' cookbook to try and emulate the delicious dishes ourselves,we were that taken with the food! We had a fantastic time staying in this fabulous B&B and have bought home many fond memories of this special area in the Napa Valley.
01/19/15 Carol V Turlock, California
This B & B is full of classy touches, from wine and port in the living room, to chocolate oatmeal cookies with port and glasses in the bedrooms! Breakfast both days where fabulous, homemade scones and muffins, poached eggs and apple sausage, fruit, and granola with yogurt, and worth breaking your diet for french toast! The rooms are all different, but the pillows need updating and the wall unit air conditioner/heaters are extremely loud. We turned off the wall unit, room stayed warm and made it much easier to sleep. The house is located close to the street, so be prepared for road noise or request a room in the rear of the house! Lots of nice restaurants and wine tasting within walking distance.
"Highly recommended for central Calistoga"
What a great place - a warm welcome from Nick and Gillian, comfortable rooms, fabulous breakfasts. We also enjoyed the welcome wine and home-made snacks - repeated each day of the stay. Highly recommended as a base for exploring Calistoga and the wider Napa valley wine region. Nick put together a package for us, included dining vouchers, scheduled wine tastings and use of the local shuttle bus.
"Lovely place; fantastic breakfasts"
Clean, beautiful furniture, unbeatable breakfasts (and cookies). The Spring room may have been missing a closet, but made up for it with its fantastic bathroom. The Craftsman style was excellently maintained. A few details were strange: The Howell room lacked a working lock on the door, and the only door connecting the Spring room to the rest of the house was through the pantry and "off-limits."
"Lovely stay, great location with a twist of English charm"
11/13/14 Lu F
Our stay (three days) at The Craftsman Inn was just perfect. Although the owners have lived in CA for many years, they are originally from the UK and I think the Inn has a touch of English charm to it. Our hosts were lovely and very knowledgeable about the area (and more importantly where the best wineries are!). The food was lovely, the rooms were spacious with a boutique feel and the weather was great.... all in all, a great get-away. I'd definitely go back.
"Good - but avoid The Spring Room!!"
11/01/14 ChopChopMan Reading, United Kingdom
Good bits: Outstanding quality, home-coked breakfast - amazing! Clean and comfortable room Convenient location, quality toiletries, complimentary cookies/sherry in the room and wine in the lounge 'Home from home' style decor Bad bits - The Spring room! Quite small with no proper wardrobe, just a hanging rail with no shelves or drawers for clothes Shower didn't work properly But, the main issue - PRIVACY!! Off the Spring room are two thin doors, one of which backs directly onto the kitchen, so we were woken up by the clatter of breakfast being prepared. The other thin door seems to back onto an adjacent bedroom's bathroom! This meant we could hear (and smell) every tiny detail of our neighbour's ablutions. It was as though they were actually in our room and we were periodically awoken during the night by the noise their toilet activities. Not at all pleasant, but hopefully a unique problem with this one room.
"Unfortunately the owners have left the building"
10/18/14 Newfie-Traveller07 Calgary
One of the reasons for staying in Bed and Breakfasts like this is to experience the enthusiasm of the owners. Here you have a lovely old house that has been lovingly restored. But, unfortunately, for whatever reason, the owners have apparently stopped caring. The bones of the room were excellent but the pillows and the mattress should have been replaced a couple of years ago. The staff were pleasant but detached; the owners rarely seen and when seen a bit grumpy. The location is convenient to town but noisy. We had a good stay but wouldn't recommend it and wouldn't stay here again. You can do better.
"Awesome Place to Stay"
10/08/14 Marco R
We went to The Craftsman Inn because a friend of mine suggested it. We immediately felt in love for it. The place is beautiful. Really, it is beautiful ! The rooms are cool and very peacefull. The breakfast is awesome and everything is so simple and easy. It is definitely a perfect place to stay. I would recomend it.
"Absolutely Amazing B&B"
10/02/14 Amy H Horsham, United Kingdom
We stayed here for one night after spending 4 nights in San Francisco and booked the Diamond Room. It was absolutely heaven - after an afternoon wine tasting we relaxed in the lovely jacuzzi tub with a glass of wine and the gorgeous homemade cookies which were divine. The room was large and spacious and the bed one of the comfiest we have ever slept on. Nick recommended Jole to eat and this was the best meal we ate in 3 weeks in America - the tasting menu was excellent value and we tried an array of yummy dishes all washed down with a local Pinot noir !! Breakfast the next morning was delicious with bacon, pancakes, homemade granola with yoghurt and fruit - the perfect start for our day. We loved Calistoga and only wished we'd stayed longer.
"Best Breakfast you will ever eat!"
09/28/14 Ketki G Lacey, Washington
The location is very good, you can walk to town. Rooms are very comfortable. Hospitality was wonderful. We enjoyed delicious breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend this bed and breakfast. We purchased the cook book to see if we can try making the delicious scones we ate for breakfast ,
