“This is the spot to connect with nature and to experience some wild living. Spending time outdoors is encouraged, however it may be difficult to leave the cosy, cedar-shingled lodges behind. Each one has a gas fireplace, outdoor decks and large windows which help bring the outside in during chilly months. The complimentary wine tastings are both fun and informative.”
Tucked in a secluded canyon in California’s Napa Valley, Calistoga Ranch is a luxurious ranch retreat complete with vineyard, lakeside restaurant, mineral pools, and hiking paths. Set within 157 acres of pristine forest, this resort blends in with its natural surroundings for a peaceful, nature-filled stay.
There are 50 freestanding guest lodges designed to offer maximum privacy. Constructed from wood, the spacious lodges have floor-to-ceiling windows, while outdoor showers and living areas blur the boundaries between indoors and out. Several of the lodges have private outdoor hot tubs.
The Lakeside restaurant serves contemporary American cuisine with much of the produce grown on the farm. There’s also a lounge bar serving light meals, wines and cocktails.
There’s plenty to do, from wine tasting and cookery classes to garden and vineyard tours, hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding. The spa is a delight with mineral soaking pools and restorative treatments made from indigenous products.
