Nice place and just a short walk from the Main Street of Calistoga
Visited Napa Valley for first time with my wife and another couple. They love Calistoga and have been to the area six times.
We wanted to share common space instead of having separate lodging and this Calistoga Arbor property seem to fit. Is it a "luxury" spot? I'd have to say no.
First, for two couples, it is an awkward floor plan. As mentioned in a previous review one of the bedrooms shares space with the kitchen. Make sure the couple in that BR are the early risers and know how to make the coffee! Aside from that the space is quaint with a nice front room for lounging and socializing. The kitchen is adequate yet with so many Napa Valley dining options we only used it for light snacks and bacon and eggs. There is a small refrigerator/freezer combo and microwave as well as a two burner electric stovetop.
Beds were very comfortable and closet/dresser options satisfactory.
Where the property lacked the most was in cleanliness and preparation. As mentioned earlier we were two adult couples yet received only one towel set per person for a four night stay. There is no washer/dryer.
The bathroom shower curtain had a section of mold in one area. Wall trim ledges were extremely dusty as well as the vent fan louvers. Lastly, the garbage disposal did not work and caused some back up in the sink when running water or using the dishwasher.
We didn't complain while there as these were issues that shouldn't have been present but weren't worth the hassle of addressing at the time. However, "luxury" it wasn't.
It certainly is in a convenient location to downtown Calistoga. Everything is within walking distance!
Adele was pleasant to work with prior to our stay and very prompt in response. Yet, she did not greet us upon arrival or check in at any time during our stay.
Our friends have stayed in equally valued properties in Calistoga and comparatively recommended those during our next visit.
The cottages were perfect for weekend in Calistoga. Walking distance to everything downtown. Host were very helpful with any thing we needed.
We were there over Memorial Day weekend for my boyfriend's birthday, The home is very charming, well kept flowers, outdoor seating, quaint kitchen and living room. It was fine for the two of us - but could have slept four easily. Adele and Chris were readily in touch and answered any questions promptly. We would stay there again... within just a few miles from some of the best wineries in the area!
Our stay at the Cottage was perfect ... a great location, wonderful facilities, and Adele (the owner/manager) was an excellent hostess! Our weekend at the Cottage included everything that we needed. Adele was very easy to work with and she responded to all questions and requests quickly and efficiently. We wish we could have stayed longer.
Walkable to town, garden setting
