The location of the cottage was perfect for our trip to wine country. We enjoyed the hospitality of Mari from beginning to end. She left detailed instructions for us for directions, caring for the cottage as well as suggestions for around town. The bakery treat and food left in the fridge was awesome as were our egg omelets from the fresh eggs in the morning. If you love the countryside you will enjoy your time at this cottage!
We enjoyed our stay in this really pretty and welcoming cabin. The sacred textiles were really incredible and we especially loved getting to ride the cruiser bikes to town for breakfast. It was also nice to have a few necessities on hand - coffee, tea, breakfast food.
Spent only one night at this property & wished for more time there! The area is quiet and has a lot of privacy, which I liked - it's a 5 to 10 min drive to the Main Street of Calistoga (bit far to walk so you would need a car). Mari was incredibly hospitable, she left us a sweet surprise when we first got there & stocked the fridge with some things for breakfast (thank you!)
The house was very clean and tidy, and was really comfortable - there's a fire place for chilly nights, and a comfy bed.
The best part was the communication, even though we never met in person Mari was incredibly detailed with her responses and offered up some great advice and suggestions. Would definitely return and would recommend to everyone visiting Calistoga who want to relax away from the hustle and bustle.
The lodging near Calistoga was just outside of town, comfortable and quiet. The inside was cozy and well appointed. It was chilly when we visited so we had to be pretty diligent about keeping the wood stove stoked, but the flannel sheets on the bed are the best ever. We were greeted with a wonderful pastry dessert that was fabulous. Lodging is close to town so it was easy to get around and there are a number of nice restaurants and wineries close by to visit. You can't beat the view of the stars on a clear night. We would definitely stay again if we venture back to the area.
We had a fantastic long weekend stay in Mari's cottage. Mari was a most attentive host, catering to everything we could possibly need and more.
The cottage was spacious, clean, cozy and well equipped. It was also in a fantastic location, letting us bike to wine tastings and Calistoga in minutes (bikes provided!)
Thanks we'll certainly recommend and stay again!
Absolutely LOVED Mari's rustic cottage. The fresh eggs from her chickens as well as the fresh granola each morning were lovely. The location was perfect...my only regret is that I couldn't spend more time there.
Mari's place was fantastic. Exactly as described and she was a wonderful host - very communicative, flexible and gracious. The place was set back in the country, very private and romantic, and was even larger than we had anticipated. Mari's directions to get to the place were spot on and very helpful. The fresh pastries provided were a nice touch and we felt right at home during our short stay. I'd highly recommend Mari's place if you're looking for a quiet, yet convenient, clean and affordable place to stay in northern Napa Valley.
I highly recommend this "cottage" in Calistoga ! Mari's place is in a beautiful country setting, away from the hustle and bustle of wine country, but within a few minutes' drive from Calistoga. The "cottage" is spacious and comfortable, thoughtfully and tastefully outfitted. Mari left comprehensive instructions and directions, as well as very special treats for a welcome snack and breakfast. I'm sorry that we did not have a chance to meet Mari, but her presence was felt in the lovely decor and spotlessly clean spaces. Grover was gracious and extremely interesting to talk with the next morning - we probably kept him too long but it was fascinating to learn about the area from a dedicated permaculture specialist. Many Thanks to both !
This is a very cozy and comfortable cottage. During our stay the weather was cold in the evenings but the wood burning stove and space heaters did keep it warm enough. The downstairs was chilly, but there is enough space upstairs that we did not use the downstairs portion. I loved the flannel sheets on the comfortable bed and plenty of blankets were provided. We did not prepare any meals, but I did appreciate the tea and cream that was provided (there were also eggs, granola, yogurt and tangerines available- but we never ate breakfast). The chocolate and caramel tart that was waiting for us when we arrived was incredibly delicious!
I would definitely stay here again: it's in a perfect location, there are beautiful views, and it was a comfortable stay. Mari and Grover are very communicative and helpful.
What a charming place. My friend and I really enjoyed our cottage experience. From the nice welcome treat to the exquisite views, everything was perfect. Mari and Grover were excellent hosts and I would highly recommend this to anyone. I have a feeling we'll be back!
Caroline was awesome! I never got to meet her face to face but she left my place so neat and clean, like no one had been there. Thanks you! Come back again :)
Mari, Grover and their group were great guests! They were prompt in letting us know their plans, helpful and great guests.
Mari was great. Our communication was easy and my place was left in terrific condition. I would highly recommend this guest!
Mari and Grover stopped in the city for a night. They kept me posted on their arrival time and took care of my place. They're welcome back any time.
