Hidden on a 157-acre area in a private canyon in Napa Valley is this rustic, yet upscale resort. Guests of the ranch can enjoy on-property hiking trails, adult and family resort pools with services and amenities, dining at the resort’s lakefront restaurant, and regular classes and activities for adults and kids alike. The pet-friendly property provides kids’ activities like nature explorations, cooking classes and art classes, while on the resort there is also biking, bocce ball and other fun.
Accommodations at the ranch are private guest lodges. Deluxe Lodges, the most standard, can only accommodate two people, but the one- and two-bedroom lodges are ideal for families. These provide separate bedrooms and living space starting at 1,200 square feet in size. Two-bedroom lodges can sleep up to five, as can the Estate Lodge, which is 2,400 square feet and extremely private.

We have stayed at this resort multiple times. It is an amazing resort. The outdoor showers are magnificent attached to the room. It is so quiet and peaceful. I was quite disappointed with the condition of our carpet in our room. It has not been replaced since we started coming years ago. well worn and discolored. With the high rate that you pay, I expect awesome condition.
The Resort was wonderful . My wife and I enjoyed the hike to Davis Winery from property . The hike was about 11/2 miles and took about an hour . When we arrived at the winery we were met with a wonderful greeting and a glass of wine . That was one of our favorite experiences that we would recommend to everyone staying at Calistoga .
