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!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
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.
Absolutely amazing! - cozy beautiful 1st class!
A stunning property with hosts that look after every detail and everything you need before you even realize you need or want it! The property is private, gorgeous, and while after many vacations you are ready to get home — this is a property you don’t ever want to leave!!! I would recommend this to anyone lucky enough to be able to experience it!
An absolutely gorgeous estate. Totally stunning
Firstly the location is stunning. The house was beyond fantastic and the care that Anthony the property owner took was to perfection. I would go back again and again and recommend it to family and friends. An experience I will forever cherish
We were a group of 6 couples celebrating a 50th birthday in wine country. The house was absolutely perfect. I loved that each bedroom had its own en suite bathroom. Kitchen had everything you could possibly need and then some! Outside the house was great as well. Unfortunately it was rainy while we there so didn’t get to fully enjoy that, but we had a fabulous time in spite of that. Arthur was a great host and took care of anything we needed promptly. I would 100 percent recommend this property.
Best place to stay in Napa Valley for 10 - 12 people
The house is equipped with the latest tech and is sparkling clean. The surroundings are stunning and Arthur was incredible resposive and welcoming.
We stayed as a group of 10 for a wedding and are definitely planning to coming back! The house is surely even nicer in spring / summer / autumn when you can use all the comfy outdoor furniture, the grill and the pool. But we came in winter with cold weather and rain and still loved it. The house offers so many inside opportunities to spend quality time as a group like in the huge kitchen, the dining table or the living room in front of a cozy fire or even the private tennis court.
There is really not one negative thing one could say about this accommodation. Thanks a lot, Arthur
