I Want to Go to There: Calistoga Ranch






Okay, so after reading last week’s post on traveling, you might want to punch me in the face a little. We do have a mini-getaway planned for later this week — nothing on the epic two week international travel scale, but perhaps just as needed. In honor of Joe’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, AND the long weekend (do you have it off?) we’re heading back to California to meet up with friends in Napa for a relaxing weekend of wining, dining, and being in a place where it’s not snowing. I’m so, so excited!

For this trip, we’re staying in our favorite inn down in Yountville, which is in the lower part of Napa Valley, just so we can be closer to some of the activities we have planned. However, I wanted to share a resort that I’ve been dying to stay at and is definitely on my list for future getaways — Calistoga Ranch. Small and intimate, this property is on a huge piece of land, with private little lodges that are all tucked up into the trees. To me, the rooms look and feel like modern, organic, grown up tree houses (check out that one photo above where the huge oak tree is growing up through your private deck — hot tub included)!





Aren’t the grounds just dreamy? I love how the design of the ranch is so well integrated into the trees and hills. I can only imagine how wonderful it would feel to take a shower outdoors here in the spring and summer months (um, yes please)! Here are a few more shots: 





What do you think? Are your bags packed? I know a couple people who have spent time at the Calistoga Ranch spa…and all reports have been that it is even better than the pictures!

    My best friend got married at Calistoga. It is idilic. The Solage (it’s sister hotel) is amazing too. The spa there is beautiful and incredibly relaxing.

    This place looks amazing! It’s officially on my bucket list of places! I’m visiting Napa for the first time the first weekend of March and we’re staying in Calistoga (but not here!). Any tips on what to pack? I’m so clueless!

    Gorgeous! Have fun this weekend! As someone who’s never been to Napa…are there a lot of activities for people who don’t drink?

    My friend that lives in San Francisco just recently stayed here with her husband. Her pictures were just amazing! The staff even left a jar of puppy treats in their room for their dog they brought with them. This place is definitely on my list! :)

    We just planned a trip to Napa in mid-March and are staying in Yountville as well! We planned it around lunch reservations at French Laundry! We are staying at the Napa Valley Lodge–wish it was the kind of trip where we could splurge for a long weekend at Calistoga or their sister hotel Auberge du Soleil! So luxurious!!!
