Northern California’s Wine Country draws visitors from all over the world, but where’s the most convenient place to stay? Calistoga is the only location that’s 30 minutes or less from these famous places: Internationally-known wineries such as Chateau Montelena (of the 1976 Paris blind-tasting fame) and Sterling Vineyards (where you arrive via solar-power aerial tramway); spectacular wineries like Castello di Amorosa, a faithful re-creation of an Italian medieval castle; spas with natural geothermal waters and mud baths; award-winning boutique wineries; Old Faithful Geyser of California, the Napa Valley Wine Train, the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, hot air balloon rides, big-name entertainment, casinos, Safari West wildlife preserve, the Petrified Forest and much more.
Calistoga is the place to “center yourself” while enjoying the healing benefits of restorative spa treatments that feature natural spring waters.

It’s conveniently located in the beautiful, serene northern tip of the Napa Valley with immediate access to wine regions of neighboring Sonoma and Lake counties.
