This has to be one of the most perfect retreats in the country.  The visionary Beall family has created a utopian destination for all the good things in life.  This is a working farm where the wine, epicurian, nature, and relaxation experiences all come together.  They host top notch wine events with stars like Boots Brounstein of Diamond Creek and Pam Starr of Crocker & Starr, as well as having a stellar wine cellar of their own.  They even have two Italian truffle dogs.

Possibly the most anticipated opening for years in Napa Valley took place on February 2, 2009. Located in the heart of Yountville, California, this 62 room hotel, spa and restaurant will chart a new course in Napa hospitality. With a modern elegant design, incorporating advanced environmental technologies and materials, the Bardessono is undoubtedly the greenest luxury hotel in America.


Solage Calistoga   

755 Silverado Trail

Calistoga, CA  94515

This place is spanking new and is all about healthy balance.  Rustic, but refined; gracious, yet green.  Solage takes the natural and makes it truly super, with organic design, thoughtful service and indulgent amenities.  The only perceived disadvantage may be that there are no other restaurants within walking distance.

 

Calistoga Ranch

580 Lommel Road

Calistoga, CA  94515

707-254-2800

Tucked into a private canyon in the Upper Napa Valley on a 157-acre site marked by ancient oaks, majestic hills, a rock-hewn stream and private lake lies Calistoga Ranch.

The 48-room luxury resort captures the rich culture of food, wine and nature inherent to the region. Designed with relaxation in mind, lodges offer guests and owners the ultimate

experience with a collection of indoor and outdoor spaces that allow you to fully experience the pristine setting.


This place is really pricey but you cannot beat the location for both peace and tranquility in a natural setting with many great restaurants just minutes away in Calistoga and St. Helena.  The SolBar (see our Restaurant page) is just down the road.
