Our gated property includes 40 acres of undeveloped natural and wild beauty. There is a lot of history surrounding this property that we are proud to continue and share with our guests. The gardens and landscaping are spectacular and a perfect backdrop to our quaint rental cottage and endless-like pool. We are surrounded by one of Calistoga’s amazing vineyards, Jericho Canyon. It is quiet and remote – while being within 3 ½ miles of the center of downtown: a perfect balance.
Calistoga's small town ambiance, coupled with sophisticated dining, spa adventures and shopping, make it a favorite of many wine country visitors. Underground thermal features give rise to natural hot springs. Jericho Ridge is approximately 3 miles from Chateau Montelena – the vineyard that inspired the birth of Napa Valley – as depicted in the movie “Bottle Shock.”
We're proud that Calistoga was named one of the United States' Top Ten destinations for relaxation and spa 2010 TRAVELERS CHOICE DESTINATIONS AWARDS.
Calistoga is now an official Napa Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area). Prompting widespread jubilation, Calistoga was designated its own unique grape growing region in December 2009, after a six year effort by Bo Barrett of Chateau Montelena Winery and Congressman Mike Thompson. This will not only 'concrete Calistoga's place in the world of wine,' as Rex Stults, Industry Relations Director for Napa Valley Vintners, puts it, but also gives consumers confidence that when they buy wines saying Calistoga on the label, the product contains 85% grapes grown in this particular region.
Find yourself here, and you’ll find yourself coming back. (And we'll always be glad to see you!)

We live in Tilghman Island, Maryland but travel to Calistoga as often as possible. We were visiting dear friends in Calistoga during Thanksgiving, 2010 when we fell in love with the Jericho Canyon and knew we wanted to live there one day. When our property came onto the market a week later, it was destiny. Unfortunately, our jobs keep us in the Washington DC area - for now. In the meantime, we are happy and excited to share our future Paradise with you. Please enjoy it as we wish we could!

Calistoga is an easy trip in from either Oakland or San Francisco airport. It is in the north end of the valley across the ridge from Santa Rosa (15 miles) therefore you can avoid the Napa Valley traffic until you are ready for great wine tasting and the beautiful Napa experience. We do alot of cycling through the valley and love the Silverado Trail. Our cottage has large windows throughout and ceiling fans in every room - so we generally leave everything open and live as close to nature as possible. The weather is warm in the day and cool in the evening, most of the year. After a lovely day full of wine tasting, spa experiences, hiking or cycling and outstanding meals, we love to either relax at our retreat with a glass of wine and watch the colors of the sunset on the Palisades or go dancing at the Calistoga Inn.
Our property is 3 1/2 miles from downtown Calistoga but is quite remote in the hills of Jericho Canyon. The landscaping was developed by the previous owners who are extraordinary botanical gardeners - and the gardens are exceptional. The hiking trails on our property seem to go forever - of course there is lots of wildlife in the hills so you need to be cautious. Our pool is a cool way to end the day and the view from the pool deck and house is incredible. Our small vineyard is in the development phase but adds a fun dimension to the view. Our home is perfect for those who love the outdoors - and all that nature can provide. Please note that the Valley is unique in that it can be extremely hot during the day and even cold at night. It is usually dry but there are unexpected rainy times. Please be ready to experience incredible nature - at its best.
I could write a book on how much my husband and I enjoyed this place!!!!! We arrived on a Wednesday late afternoon and left Sunday so relaxed and happy. It's out in the most beautiful wine country. It's private. It's quiet. We loved the place we stayed. Tons of windows and lights and any window you looked out amazing views! Amazing! And great sitting areas outside! So many plants and flowers -- truly amazing. We loved and enjoyed the pool overlooking the valley and mountains and vineyard every day!
They were super helpful with directions, recommendations, places to go and see and do. We are already talking about our next visits there, because this won't be our last.
And the price was perfect for what you got. Terrific kitchen. Everything is really first class. I love they store the cushions for the furniture so they don't get dusty when not being used. We also loved the amazing little path down to the pool. Was just terrific!
We stay at a lot of VRBO's and this was our favorite we think!
Book this place!!!
The view and inside the house is very nice and very well kept; however, the outside landscaping and furniture could use some improvement. Also, if you are not wanting to be totally disconnected, this place is not for you as it does not have basic cable or wifi. They do provide a TV with some DVDs for entertainment and music CDs. We did not use the pool as we were not sure how to get to it as it is not right outside the house as it appears in the picture. It is in another area where a new house is being built. It would have been helpful to have a book in the house with instructions and details. We have gotten this at other homes we have rented from VRBO. The owners were very responsive to our questions. Also, if you pay via paypal, the owners charge the fee back to you when they return the deposit which they did not tell me upfront.
We stayed at Jericho Ridge for just 2 nights, which was an exception to the minimum. The place was in a quiet location with an unbelievable view just a few miles for the town of Calistoga. We had a lovely time visiting the vineyards and wineries by day and cooking up a delicious dinner at night. We would definitely come back-for longer next time!
We arrived late and it was black as night, dimly lit, (wouldn't recommend doing this for the first time in). When we woke up in the morning and the views we were greeted with the sunrise I couldn't even imagine. It is truly a retreat. My camera couldn't capture what I was seeing. We did have one night we cooked and enjoyed the land, but wished we had done it more. We like to visit wine country every few years, this was the first time we rented home, and will do it again in a heart beat. This place is in a peaceful place away from the hustle and bustle of town, but not too far away, a quick drive to Calistoga. There were four of us and we liked to hang out and talk after dinner. You will not disturb any immediate neighbors here.
Spent a week at Jericho Ridge and did not want to leave. The two bedroom cottage has one bathroom and is nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. Large kitchen for making meals with ingredients from local farmers market. The views from the property are stunning; the days are quiet and peaceful. The property is large and private. The house overlooks the newly-planted vineyard. The photos in the listing do not do justice to the breathtaking views from the property.
The pool was a refreshing break from the heat of the day and the nights were cool. The owners were EXTREMELY responsive to inquiries and to a very minor issue that occurred during our stay. We would certainly return again! Thank you P & J, you are excellent hosts.
This was the perfect spot to relax on a couples vacation. This home fit 4 adults perfectly. Very clean and updated. The pool was a perfect afternoon retreat on a hot summer day. Very private with beautiful views and scenery. We will be back on our next trip to California.
