Where to Stay in Napa Valley :: Mount View Boutique Hotel

Happy first day of Summer! Last week, I treated my sister to a wine country road trip for some much-needed rest and relaxation. The drive from San Francisco to Napa is always a treat with the rolling hills covered in vines.

Hotel: We first checked into our Artistry Cottage at the Mount View Hotel in Calistoga. We stayed in the Lava room on the second floor with a comfy king bed with an adjoining living room area. The hotel is conveniently located in charming Downtown Calistoga, with artisanal wine shops, cheese shops, and an array of restaurants. _DSC2187-2IMG_9895Breakfast in bed is always a good idea! We grabbed an Eggs Benedict, fruit salad, and a couple of coffees from Johnny's next door.


IMG_9802Mount View has a gorgeous pool and spa. Unfortunately, it was raining the day we arrived, so we didn't get a chance to enjoy the pool. However, we were treated to a relaxing deep tissue massage. Since I've been dealing with seasonal allergies, the masseuse recommended that I try their Himalayan Salt Sauna, which has respiratory and skin benefits. Ahh, what a relaxing evening!FullSizeRender 73Each Artistry room comes with a complementary bottle of wine! This was a great way to "wine" down for the evening. Cheers!
