Even the most comfortable and relaxed Napa Valley Bed & Breakfast Inn needs to have "small print" to clarify our approach to hosting your stay in Calistoga, California. We trust you will find these
specifics about our Amenities & Policies appropriate and fair to all our guests. Please contact the owners, Doug and Judy Cook, if you desire an exception to our standard approach.
Coffee and tea are made available starting approximately 7:00 a.m. each day for the early risers. Starting approximately 7:30 a.m., a "serve yourself" buffet with fresh fruit, a variety of juices, home-made baked goods, cereal, and yoghurt is available. A hot breakfast entrée (that varies daily; see Menus & Recipes page) is served each morning from approximately 8:00 a.m. to about 9:30 a.m. For late arriving guests, or those with busy schedules, the schedule above can be adjusted with prior notice. Guests may choose from seating at the large "family" table, private tables in the dining room, or the outdoor patio. Please let us know if you have special food requirements (vegetarian, allergies, etc.) and we will try to accommodate your needs.
