The Space

Please note the City of Calistoga code requires 30 day minimum rental periods and a maximum of 4 people staying in the house...Thanks for looking!

Our cottage is the perfect place to get away and relax. Call it your home base while you adventure out to downtown Calistoga, a quick 10 minute walk away, or to nearby wineries.

If staying in is your style, cook in a chef’s kitchen and lounge on the quaint front porch or in the backyard near the outdoor fireplace. Our lot is bigger than most in Calistoga, so it’s like it’s own self-contained resort.

Are you a hiker or mountain biker? The Oat Hill Mine Trail head is just a 15 minute walk (or a two minute drive) from the cottage. When you’re done you can pamper yourself in the outdoor hot tub and shower.

This Calistoga retreat offers many ways for you to escape and unwind….

Fully equipped chef's kitchen with gas Viking stove

Outdoor shower and hot tub off the master bedroom

Two queen beds

Outdoor lounging areas in big backyard

Outdoor fireplace

Salt-water pool

Two outdoor dining tables – a four seat bistro table and a 12 seat entertaining table

Cozy front porch for sipping your morning coffee or afternoon glass of wine

*We love families coming to stay, however because of the pool, we can't allow children under 12 as overnight guests :(

**Sorry, we cannot allow any pets, due to allergies.

***The building at the back of the property you see in the photos is an office, it will not be occupied nor is it part of the rental.

Thanks for looking!

  • The home was perfect for the three of us....extra clean, nice furnishings, great pool and an awesome kitchen with all the gadgets, spices and SUPER sharp knives. The location to town afforded the guys (dad & son) to bike (provided) into town every morning for coffee/hot (email hidden)d my husband and I walked downtown most everyday just for time to chat and connect. We couldn't have asked for more. You'll fall in love with's so charming and quaint. John was always very helpful!! We will definitely come back.

  • We have used Airbnb to stay in wonderful places all over the world, and our stay at John and Tara's was the best experience we've had yet. The house itself was just perfect for our needs and John and Tara (who are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet) went above and beyond in many ways to make sure that our stay was just perfect. We can't wait to come back!

  • This house is great for four people, and it is well-situated near downtown Calistoga. The backyard of the house is also quite charming. The pool was perfect for the hot Calistoga summer.

  • The place was absolutely beautiful. We are so happy we chose to stay here. Tara and John were extremely easy to communicate with by text message for any questions we had throughout our stay. We really enjoyed the total privacy in a huge wonderful backyard with fresh flowers blooming along side the pool and would love to stay here again!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in John and Tara's house! We loved being able to walk to Main Street, swim in the pool on the hot afternoons and sit under the shade of the huge tree in the backyard sipping wine and snacking. The house itself was very beautiful and fit our needs perfectly. We will most definitely return and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing stay in lovely Calistoga!

  • The house was gorgeous: spacious, well anointed, and comfortable. The kitchen in particular was rather good, and of course the hot tub and backyard made the stay particularly relaxing. Tara and John were responsive, thoughtful, and kind. All in all, a tremendous find.

    April 2013
  • A nicely arranged and maintained home with an excellent kitchen and outdoor areas. The hosts were very responsive and cared about our stay and comforts. The local area and easy access to restaurants, wineries and the town of Calistoga made our stay all the better. I would recommend this retreat without hesitation.
