Nick and Gillian Kite present their Luxury Napa Valley Bed and Breakfast, The Craftsman Inn.
We are excited to have been recently featured in the article, Calistoga’s Getaway, by Paul and Teresa Lowe. They detailed what a trip to the Calistoga area is like, including staying with us at the Calistoga Wine Way Inn or Craftsman Inn. Check out what they had to say and read the full article here.
“The Kite family prides itself on offering guests what they call ‘Calistoga hospitality.’ The stay includes quiet, private spacious rooms with really comfortable beds and very clean large bathrooms and a zen-like sitting garden. There’s also a hearty meal to start each day. No two mornings meals are the same. The menu changes depending upon what’s available at the local markets. Complimentary glasses of local brandy or wine are offered during the evenings.”
We were thrilled to host this lovely couple and we appreciate their kind mention of us.
Are you planning a Calistoga getaway yourself? Pack your bags for Napa Valley and head to one of our Calistoga bed and breakfasts to have this enjoyable experience for yourself! Book your stay today.
Fall flavors and beautiful autumnal colors are waiting for you in Napa Valley this time of year. From the giant pumpkins adorning people’s steps to the grape leaves in the vineyards, you will find a gorgeous background for you to taste a new wine or relax in a mud bath.
Gillian has brought out her seasonal Pumpkin Pie Scones at the inn and you can smell them cooking all the way up the street.
Local restaurants are including the fall seasonal ingredients in their menus from butternut squash soup with granny smith apple slaw at Barolo to pumpkin dumplings at Jole.
We have some great special fall/winter pricing available at our inns and we hope to welcome you with a pumpkin pie scone soon!

Calistoga’s lighted tractor parade is celebrating its 19th anniversary this year. Join us for this quaint small town tradition where we pay homage to the city’s agricultural heritage.
Tractors of all shapes and sizes will be dressed up with shining lights as they parade down the main street of Lincoln Avenue. It’s great fun for everyone and Santa even makes a special visit! (Pictures courtesy of the Calistoga Visitor Center.)
Our family loves this Calistoga tradition and we usually start off with a nice Hot Toddy to warm us up before the parade. Here is our favorite recipe.
Hot Toddy Recipe
