"Today's Your Day" Special
Are you a procrastinator? If you keep thinking about a quick getaway to the "top of the wine country" and never quite get around to making your "escape" reservations, we've got just the deal for you. Call Brannan Cottage Inn on the same day you hope to "get out of town", and when we answer the phone, say "Today's My Day!!" If we have a vacancy for that same night, you can get the best room available for a very hard to beat $190.00 (plus local taxes). Of course your stay includes our usual excellent hospitality, a variety of opportunities to save on restaurant meals, spa treatments, and wine tasting in and around Calistoga, late night dessert wine or port and chocolates, a great night's sleep, and Judy's wonderful multi-course breakfast in the a.m.
Calistoga Hot Air Balloons & Brannan Cottage Inn Special Package
Calistoga Hot Air Balloons is the only hot air balloon company to fly from scenic Calistoga at the northern end of California’s Napa Valley on a regular basis. The flights are rural in nature, providing pristine views of the beautiful Napa Valley and offer a unique flight experience, including close up looks of such local wonders as the amazing Old Faithful Geyser (1 of the only 3 in the world), the dramatic Palisade Cliffs to the east, and Mt. St. Helena to the north. You’ll float over famous vineyards and wineries including Silver Rose, Clos Pegase, Sterling Vineyards, Provenance Vineyards, Frank Family Vineyards, Charles Krug Winery and the Napa Valley castle of 'Castello di Amorosa'. You’ll also see Château Montelena, the winery featured in the movie Bottle Shock.
Calistoga Hot Air Balloons picks you up from our Inn and launches their trips just a mile or two north of us, giving you lots of extra sleep in the morning compared to the "down Valley" balloon trips that launch from Yountville and/or Napa to the south. They also provide a full brunch after your thrilling trip.
And there's no better place to stay the night(s) before (or after) your balloon ride than Brannan Cottage Inn. To make it even easier to pair the balloon ride and your lodging with us, we've teamed with Calistoga Hot Air Balloons to offer the following savings:
Brannan Cottage Inn Special Rate: 10% off your stay when you book a hot air balloon ride with Calistoga Hot Air Balloons; just mention this offer when you book your reservation.

Make any getaway with your sweetheart extra special when you stay with us for two weekday nights all year long. In addition to a 10% discount on standard room rates, we will be delighted to include a bottle of Mumm Napa Champagne and local gourmet chocolates (for you and your “sweetie”) for an additional $50.00 beyond the discounted price of the room you select.

Friday Evening Winery Tasting Schedule (during "Peak Season")
One of the traditions we've started at the Inn, and one that's been a very big success with our guests, friends and other oenophiles, has been the wonderful periodic Friday (and sometimes other) evening presence (typically from 5:30 to 7 pm during peak season) of a knowledgeable and fun representative from one of our local wineries. They typically bring several bottles of 2 or more examples of the winemaker's art for sharing with our guests, we provide appetizers and the patio or a fire in the parlor, and we all get to know each other better, along with the wine varieties of the evening. On occasion, Doug goes deep into his cellars and brings out some interesting wines from our winery friends.
We're planning to continue to invite our favorite wineries "with characters" for 2013's peak season. Past wineries participating in our program are listed below, as examples.
