About the Property
Newly Renovated Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
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!)

In fact, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Calistoga a 'Distinctive Destination'.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: 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! Jacque and Patrick
Why the Owner Chose Calistoga, CA, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
