Tucked into a private canyon outside the historic town of Calistoga, the 47-room resort is located on a 157-acre site marked by ancient oaks, majestic hills, a rock-hewn stream and private lake. With Calistoga Ranch, its second Napa Valley property, Auberge Resorts continues its longstanding tradition of offering the finest in understated wine country elegance.
Calistoga Ranch has taken the utmost care to preserve the integrity and beauty of the valley’s stands of ancient oak trees, lake and streams, with each lodge sited to maintain its natural state. Each cedar-shingled guest lodge is comprised of a series of bungalows connected by decks, trellised walkways and expansive outdoor living areas, with minimal impact to the pristine natural setting.
Designed with relaxation and comfort in mind, there are four room categories, deluxe lodge, one bedroom lodge, one bedroom spa lodge and estate lodge that offer from 600 to 2,400 square-feet of indoor and outdoor living space. Each lodge features floor-to-ceiling windows to create the feeling of space melting into the outdoors. Warm contemporary interiors mimic the surrounding environment, with rich polished woods and hues of tan, copper-brown, olive, sage and gold to complement the earth and wild vegetation. Each guest lodge features an indoor bath and outdoor bath garden where guests can shower under the stars.
Calistoga Ranch’s private restaurant, the Lakehouse, is open exclusively to owners and their guests and resort guests. The restaurant, headed by executive chef Robert Leva, celebrates the rich culture of food and wine in Napa Valley and makes use of the lush bounty of the region. As with the guest and owner lodges, the restaurant blurs the line between indoors and outdoors. Glass walls offer pastoral views of the magnificent oak groves and open onto expansive decks overlooking Lake Lommel, where guests can enjoy dining under the stars.
For those seeking rejuvenation, it can be found at The Bathhouse. Situated on the banks of the spring-fed Lake Lommel, The Bathhouse offers a strong connection to the natural beauty of the outdoors and views of the Mayacama Mountains. The Bathhouse features a natural thermal mineral pool and quiet treatment rooms with outdoor garden showers and private soaking tubs. While waiting for therapists or between treatments, guests are invited to unwind by the fire in the outdoor relaxation area while enjoying the soft sounds of the nearby creek and a view of Lake Lommel. A variety of unique mud treatments and baths reflect the true Calistoga soak/bath/heat ritual, but in a luxurious environment of pure relaxation, privacy and nature. Other amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, a yoga deck, a swimming pool overlooking the vineyards and 140 acres of land dedicated to hiking and active pursuits.
