Fodor's Expert Review Brannan Cottage Inn

109 Wappo Ave., Calistoga, California, 94515, USA Fodor's Choice

Stained oak floors, wainscoting, and retro bathroom fixtures recall Victorian times at this small inn whose centerpiece is an 1860s cottage from Calistoga's original spa era. Contemporary comfort is the ultimate goal, though: the beds have plush mattresses and high-thread-count sheets, and rooms are equipped with large flat-screen TVs, electronics charging stations, and illy coffee machines. Eco-friendly touches abound, most visibly in the LED lighting throughout the property. A tall palm, even taller twin cypresses, and an elm tree thought to be 300 years old shade the inn.
