About Ellen

Calistoga has been my dream place to live since I was a little girl visiting on the weekends with my parents. I look forward to sharing this special place with our guests.

Ellen purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Ellen chose Calistoga

This property has one of the most amazing views of St. Helena Mountain and the Palisades. The red glow on the Palisades is gorgeous at dusk. I knew I wanted to live on this property the first time I visited, and it was an amazing winter sunset in December that hooked me;-)

I love the farming and of course the wine that is made...I have learned the meaning of patience, waiting for the fruit of our labor. It has been worth it!

What makes this cottage unique

This special property feels far away, yet it is only minutes from main street in Calistoga. We are close to restaurants, wineries and spas, not to mention the hiking trails and swimming pools.

This is a newly remodeled cottage, with a fireplace and all the modern conveniences one would desire. There are views all the way around and vaulted ceilings for an airy feel. A new patio with a hot tub awaits you and is privately positioned, yet has a view of the Palisades and Mt. St. Helena. All this amidst 4 acres of Cabernet grapevines. Early morning hot tubbers may catch a hot air balloon above the vineyard. Prior to booking, message me and I will assist you with planning, whether it be spa treatment reservations, dining, wine tasting, or the local hiking trails.

Great property and location.

Ellen has everything available that one might need. The home is clean and relaxing. Love the morning views of the vines and hills from the bed and dining area.

Well appointed, but not as private as I would have liked

  • 3 of 5

The cottage, as you can see from the pictures has nice furnishings. Its a one room studio (with a 3/4 wall around the bedroom). The kitchen is nice with new appliances. The bathroom is nicely designed. All the furniture feels new or really well maintained.

My main complaint is that the profile pictures mask the reality of the surroundings - it looks secluded, but it is not. The 'cottage' is really a remodeled garage. It is attached to the main house and the picture window in the kitchen/dining room looks right into the Main house's yard and side door - it felt like being in a fishbowl (I kept the shade closed the whole time I stayed there). The windows all long the front face onto the main houses driveway, but those don't have shades, so no privacy option on that front - people coming and going can see into the entire space. And the back 'private area' is separated from the main house by a see through lattice fence. And, while the vineyard is a beautiful back drop, it is a working vineyard, so I had a worker wandering around right next to my 'private space.' I was looking for a secluded couple of days to do some writing, and this place didn't fit that bill.

If you are looking for seclusion - this is not the place for you. If you want a well appointed studio, very close to Calistoga, and don't mind the lack of privacy, then you will likely love this place.

Charming setting close to downtown Calistoga. Host learning handling of emergency situations.

  • 3 of 5

Ellen is a very pleasant prompt and attentive host. She has outfitted her place very tastefully and comfortably.

We stayed on a hot weekend, PG&E had forced shut off electricity for 3 hours. Since water is pumped from a well, there was no water: Ellen promptly sent us to her spa and arranged for us to be there.

Afterward the electric fireplace auto switched on so we ended up in a hot house. It was at this stage that she did not know how to handle the situation. I ended up doing online searches, called her back and managed to get the main for the fireplace turned off. Ellen’s response was to open all the windows to cool us down, and left remarking that we would be safe.

That is not the case where a fireplace is on auto pilot, it is actually a fire hazard.

She was most apologetic about this, and explained her inexperience with this type of situation. I understand where she came from but I have to admit it was quite unsettling to be left to deal with this with my resources.

I do appreciate her apology and gift of wine to make up for it. I just feel that’s landlord of any type needs to recognize emergency situations and know how to handle them well.

She even offered to refund a nights stay; I declined since we eventually fixed the problem and stayed the night with the furnace turned off.

So while the place is super comfortable , for me , safety trumps comfort.... hence the 3 stars.

Little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with Ellen in her little bit of heaven. The cottage was charming and beautifully decorated. The beds were comfortable and the murphy style queen bed was by far one of the most comfortable beds we have experienced. It was lovely having coffee and wine outside overlooking the vineyard! Still only 5 minutes from Calistoga. Ellen was very helpful in providing recommendations on vineyards to visit and restaurants to visit. Definitely would stay here again. Perfect for a couple or a couple and a small family---- we brought our 27 year old daughter and had a wonderful time.

We really enjoyed our stay in Calistoga with Ellen and her mother. They were extremely helpful and friendly the entire weekend, and the property itself was just perfect for us. Definitely recommend to others!
