Located in what Fodor’s recently referred to as, “one of the best small towns of America,” the Craftsman Inn is a place to unwind in the luxury that is the Napa Valley. The inn calls the quaint town of Calistoga home, and both have all of the charm to truly represent such a wonderful wine country region. The property is surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards as far as the eye can see, leaving guests with a feeling of majestic isolation. For all of the serenity that will be at your fingertips, though, you won’t have to go far to experience everything that the Napa Valley area has to offer.
Your hosts at the Craftsman Inn, innkeepers Nick and Gillian Kite, seemed to have focused on keeping the inn simple yet luxurious, with understated elegance and the preservation of the craftsman style always kept in mind. Built in 1910, the craftsman style home will transform you back in time and fill you with a sense of comfort that only such lovely example of history can provide.
Exploring the Area
Not far from the Craftsman Inn you can experience many of the things the Napa Valley region is most known for. You will find lavish spas where you can pamper yourself with a famed his and hers mud bath, that is commonly found at places like the Indian Springs, Golden Haven and Solage spas. You can enjoy world-class dining at nearby restaurants that include popular spots such as Solbar and Lovina or Evangeline, where you can take advantage of the Craftsman Inn’s Wine & Dine Package. You have the opportunity to indulge in fine wines while enjoying mesmerizing views. And you have the option of attending any number of festivals, Festival Napa Valley in July and Napa Valley Film Festival in November (just to name a couple), that take place in the region throughout the year. One thing is for sure, you will not be lacking in options when it comes to exploring the fascinating Napa Valley area.
A Place to Relax in Luxury
After exploring all of the wonders of the Napa Valley region, the next part of your journey will be just as enjoyable because you will have everything you need to unwind in style. The Craftsman Inn consists of only five rooms, each with something a little bit different to offer. Whether you want to treat yourself to the Spring room, with a curtained porch so you can enjoy an outdoor relaxing massage, or get cozy in the Helena room, so you can soak in the oversized jacuzzi tub, or anything in between, you will not be disappointed with your accommodations. Each room boasts luxurious 600 thread-count sheets and plush pillow-top beds with rich wood furnishings and various antiques throughout, giving you a comfortable place to lay your head.
Enjoying All the Craftsman Inn Has to Offer
While you will no doubt want to explore all over Napa Valley, there is plenty to enjoy when you spend your days at the inn as well. Of course, the best part of your day will be the fantastic breakfast served at the Craftsman, which can be enjoyed on the lovely porch while taking in the fresh air. Innkeeper Gillian Kite also offers cooking classes highlighting some of the recipes in her cookbook, Inn Food. In the afternoon guests can enjoy a complimentary wine and brandy service where they can mingle with other guests. The opportunities for rest and relaxation at the Craftsman Inn are endless and can all be enjoyed in the lap of luxury that can only be found in Napa Valley.
