The inn is within walking distance of downtown, so begin your evening with the wine and cheese reception in the lobby, then stroll into town for dinner.

Fanny's

Named for Robert Louis Stevenson’s bride (the couple honeymooned in Napa Valley in 1880), Fanny’s is an adorably country-styled bed & breakfast with a red Craftsman exterior, plank flooring, and deep window seats for reading or gazing. Unwind with a glass of wine in front of the common room fireplace, or hide away in one of the many nooks and crannies with a book from the lending library. It’s located just two blocks from downtown Calistoga, but feels a world away.
