Description of the Calistoga vacation cottage rental
The property is located in the Collayomi Valley on the North slope of Mt St Helena, which looms over the northern end of the Napa Valley on its South side. This country is among the most pristine in this area, with much of the original forests remaining and the creeks running clear and clean. A huge Manzanita grove is home to hundreds of California Quail. We're located 4 miles from Middletown, where there is fine dining at Boar's Breath Restaurant, gliding at Crazy Creek Soaring, massage and workshops at Harbin Hot Springs, Geothermal Museum and Tours and beer at Mt St Helena Brewery. Several fine antique stores and wineries are within easy driving or bicycling distance. Just 2 miles away is Twin Pines Casino. Over the mountain to Calistoga, brings you to a wide selection of World Class wineries, restaurants and shopping.

Our three cottages were built in 1997, when we opened our doors. The Innkeepers live in the main house, located several hundred feet from the cottages. Landscaping is an ongoing project as we develop more areas into gardens and wetlands. The birds are a constant source of entertainment.

Each cottage is furnished with a King-sized bed with a skylight above in the vaulted ceiling. Each has a private bath. One of the cottages is wheelchair accessible with a shower big enough for a party!

There is also a refrigerator and coffee maker in each. A TV and VCR is in each cottage and you have access to the Inn's extensive video collection. For your comfort there is a gas fireplace, air conditioner and overhead fan. A sliding glass door leads to a private redwood deck from which you overlook lawns, gardens, the quail, the Manzanita Grove, the pond, waterfall and a clear view of Mt St Helena.

The hot tub is very comfortable for two people. It's located on the outdoor deck of the main house. We invite you to soak in a hot tub under the clear skies of the mountains, under the milky way; or enjoy your soak in a light rain.

We host a country breakfast in the dining room of the main house. It begins with fresh squeezed orange juice and proceeds to main dishes such as French toast, smoked salmon, huevos rancheros, pancakes, eggs, frittata, and bacon or sausage. It's served at the main house. Fresh fruits and vegetables from our organic garden are seasonally available at breakfast and for the picking. Of course we can accommodate special diets.

There is a private phone line in each cottage for local calls, calling card calls and internet access.

Certified Therapeutic Massage is available here, at the Oasis.

Gift Certificates are available for massage or for reservations!

Croquet can be set-up on the lawn ... it's regulation size!!

It wouldn't be an understatement to say that the weather is always wonderful! Even a very occasional snowfall is a delight.

Bene Bene Magazine, November 2003

"The breakfast menu on that morning was French toast (it melted in my mouth, it was so good) and fresh strawberry compote... Greta was smiling gently and listening to her story. By the time we finished breakfast, we all felt as if we were long time friends.

". The only sound I could hear was that of a bird chirping. From the hot tub on the deck at the main house, you can see a beautiful starlit sky at night.
