    The appealing and historic town of Calistoga awaits the intrepid traveler at the "top" of the verdant and bountiful Napa Valley. Robert Louis Stevenson wrote of this place, "Calistoga itself seems to repose on a mere film above a boiling, subterranean lake." With its muds of ancient volcanic ash and mineral-rich hot spring waters, Calistoga is considered among the great wellness and relaxation destinations of the world. Ready to leave the hurried and harried world behind? Local spas abound with a full menu of spa treatments for individuals and couples. Calistoga is also home to one of only three "Old Faithful" geysers, erupting dependably every forty minutes to a thrilled audience. The hills are, of course, alive with the pleasures of world reknowned wineries and wine tasting. Calistoga is home to restaurants that have earned Zagat and Michelin listings, and the relaxed downtown is dotted with bakeries, bistros and wine bars for every taste and budget. Calistoga will not disappoint outdoor enthusiasts. Great cycling, hiking, and nature walks are offered in many nearby state parks.  Our home is situated on a cul de sac, in a quiet residential area minutes from a nine hole public golf course (there are many world class golf course within driving distance). We are a short walk to the city center, hiking trails and some wineries.
