Mayastoga.com's 6BR/6BA (Sleeps 12) Modern Ranch-Style Home in CA Wine Country
- english, french, danish
I was born in Midland, Texas to an oil man and his wife. The forth of four children and only boy. I attended Texas A&M and love to follow Aggie sports. I currently live between Texas and California, and prefer the dry Summers of California to the humid Texas Summer.
Arthur purchased this Estate in 2011
Why Arthur chose Calistoga
The minute a saw this property it reminded me of the Hill Country in Texas, with its large Oak trees, rock outcroppings, and Manzanita. Built by Richard and Marjorie Patterson (parents of the writer, James Patterson) in 1981, the residence was in pristine condition, although it was in need of an update. It took the better of 2011 to fully gut and remodel the interior of home to its current condition. In 2014 the pool and rear yard area of the house was remodeled. I love this property because it is so peaceful and quiet, yet very close to Calistoga. This is the perfect retreat I love to entertain and this is the perfect house and property for it.
What makes this Estate unique
1. Private estate large enough for a big family to all be together without being on top of each other 2. It is 7 minutes down the hill to downtown Calistoga, yet when you are at the property it feels like you are in the middle of the country. 3. The property is perfectly situated to take advantage of the entire Wine Country, both in Sonoma and Napa Counties. 4. We accept Bitcoin for payment!

No power-no problem at mayastoga ranch!
Arthur is a true gem! Worked diligently to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable- despite PSEG power outages! He was proactive with communicating the issues and his generators were a true blessing! Home itself is spacious and incredibly well stocked!!! A very special and memorable Calistoga stay!
Last week’s PG&E blackouts impacted close to 1 million Northern Californians and has now resulted in our receiving our first ever non-5-Star rating. We do have generators installed at all our properties and work diligently to maintain full services (power, water, phone, internet) during these rare times.
Five star property, five star host.
This is a 5 star property - one of the best we've experienced. From the very well appointed kitchen, to the comfortable bedding, to the well maintained grounds we can't find any fault with our stay. The home is perfect for entertaining a large group with plenty of open spaces for gathering and smaller nooks to get away from the group and relax. Arthur was a very responsive and accommodating host. We felt like honored guests. I highly recommend Heidi West catering for a delicious catered meal. Safeway delivered groceries upon our arrival - a great way to stock the home without having to shop.
Couples get away in Napa
The property sits on a remote hillside piece of land in one of the many valleys of Calistoga. While remote, easy access to all parts of central and northern Napa valley. Hose layout was perfect for couples or a few families with three bedrooms on each of two wings that were joined by the kitchen, and family room. Decorate nicely, very clean, and the property manager was in constant contact to ensure our satsifcation.
The online listing did not overstate any item, infact we found it better than the listing. If you are looking for a great spot in norhtern Napa Valley, you can't go worng with this one.
Excellent house! Loved the pool and the amount of open space to socialize. Each room having it's own bathroom works very well for a big group. Having a house with a lot of the basics stocked was very convenient (no need to run to the store for coffee filters or ketchup). Definitely recommend.
Amazing Calistoga Home with 6 bedrooms-pool, vistas, amenities and location. This house has it all!
Wow! Location-well located in Calistoga-very convenient to all that Calistoga has to offer but such a private, serene setting with stunning vistas.
The home itself has a great set up and amenities. Lots of bedrooms and baths. Huge dining table both indoors and out which is wonderful for large gatherings. Many places to gather both indoors and out but also small sitting areas if you'd like a bit of away time from other guests. Kitchen is awesome and has everything you need.
The pool is incredible-large enough for kids to play, wonderful spa at one end and my favorite a huge ledge on the other with in pool ledge loungers. Plenty of outdoor seating and shaded patio areas plus all the umbrellas you need for extra shade in and around pool. For evening 2 separate areas with fire tables and outdoor heaters if needed.
The communication and responsiveness of owner at all stages was outstanding. Rosa for housekeeping was also an A+.
The one challenge for the house is no cell service and limited Wifi-just be prepared to use e-mail and text and if you need to call use the landline. With 12 guest with multiple devices we needed to manage how many devices were on Wifi but was definitely workable and makes you really think about the need to connect endlessly versus being very present with your family and guests.
This experience was an A+ and I hope to return!
Wow, what a great place for a wine country getaway. The property is even better than the pictures show! Arthur and his team (you get a concierge to help with planning) were fantastic. He met us at the house with a nice bottle of wine and went thru how to operate everything in the house. The setting is beautiful- in the hills above Calistoga, we saw herds of deer, wild turkeys, and jack rabbits, not to mention hawks, and vultures.Arthur even shared with us the local Cab he is making down the road.....
I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing high end getaway.
