We loved staying at the Bear Flag Inn with Dennis and Margorie. It was clean and quaint, and the hosts were welcoming and warm. We were greeted with a glass of wine and nice conversation. Dennis went over the ins and outs of Calistoga, what to do, what to avoid, and how to use the amazing shuttle service. Margorie made us an amazing breakfast the next day. Eggs, bacon, fruits, juice, and tons of coffee.
Coming from the east coast, we were awake very early. There was coffee ready to make and we sat outside enjoying the chickens. It was a very tranquil stay.
We stayed in the room with the separate bathroom, which at first we weren't sure if that would be convenient. It turned out fine, just across the hall was the doors and we had a key so only we would use it. It probably was larger than the other bathrooms, we were very comfortable.
My only regret was that we had to leave early the second morning and couldn't stay for another breakfast!
