Very pleased with our stay. Calistoga has a small town feel in Napa Valley. Dennis and Margie are wonderful hosts and are very welcoming. Breakfast was outstanding and we enjoyed afternoon wine and conversation with Dennis so much! The house has a an old farm house look with chickens roaming and grape vines!

This is the third time in almost ten years that we have stayed at the Bear Flag Inn. We are from western Canada and would come here more often if it wasn't so far. You are immediately greeted by Dennis and treated like an old friend. Then you get to meet whichever pets happen to be around - love this... More

I have been visiting Calistoga for over 30 years and have always enjoyed the beauty and hospitality of the area. Unfortunately, the Bear Flag Inn proprietor ended my long run of pleasant experiences in Calistoga. I tried to make a reservation on line to stay at this property. When I did not receive a confirmation of my reservation, I called... More

My husband and I were looking for a dog friendly B&B and we found the perfect one. I booked our room, and didn't notice that the only room that was dog friendly was the cottage. A quick phone call to Dennis, and he made an exception for our pup, as long as he or I didn't bark. We had a... More

Dennis and Marjorie were wonderful hosts and have a charming B&B. They have owned the Inn for 18 years and spent time remodeling and upgrading it. We enjoyed wine and conversation in the early evening and received excellent guidance on the area and some wineries to visit. The room and bed were comfortable and clean. Breakfast was amazing both days... More

Out of our comfort zone, but we enjoyed our time there. The guest rooms are specious. The scenery can't be beat. There is a nice wine and snacks break around five pm and the breakfast in the morning in the solarium was very nice. There are many friendly animals wandering around from chickens to dogs and cats. We're animal people,... More

Cozy country inn run by Dennis & Marge. Very friendly and helpful about the area and history. Inn is set back from the busy road so it is quiet. Close to town, hot springs and wineries.

Dennis and his wife do a fine job at the Bear Flag. He is friendly and welcoming and they serve a fantastic, hot and varied breakfast in a sunny dining room.
