We came to Calistoga to attend the lobster feed at a local winery October 7th and 8th of 2011. We basically chose to stay at Trailside because it was so affordable during the busiest season in Napa Valley. We found the Trailside Inn to be not only a real buy, but also charming and comfortable. We stayed in the Dutch Henry suite that has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The bathroom is small, has space to store your toiletries, and it has a shower. The bedrooms are large and the beds are comfortable. It has a covered front porch with several chairs. It also has a full and fully equipped kitchen. The owner, Lani, is a wonderful hostess. Everyday she leaves fresh baked banana bread or muffins,a small pitcher of milk and juice, and a fruit plate for breakfast. She also left a welcoming bottle of wine. She has the kitchen stocked with small boxes of cereal, coffee, tea and condiments, as well as plates, silverware, etc. There is a small table in the kitchen. The main bedroom is off the kitchen with a 4 poster queen size brass bed, a comfortable reading chair and a gas fireplace that works. The room also has a lot of windows with blinds. There is a small flat screen TV and plenty of good cable channels to watch. Our relatives stayed in the Sam Brannan suite which was a one bedroom suite with a partial kitchen, a wood stove, and a large bathroom with a tub and shower. It shares a porch with the Fire Bell Lilly suite. The porch to these suites have an outdoor table and chairs with umbrellas. They also have a large swimming pool. They have a 2 acre property in the country just 2-3 miles outside of Calistoga. They are next to a dry bed creek and a vineyard. It was nice not to have to be up in a certain time frame for breakfast as you have to at the more expensive B&B's. If you want eggs and bacon for breakfast, you can buy it in town and cook it yourself. It was nice - and we plan to stay every time we return. It is also near some of the best wineries in Calistoga: V. Sattui, Castello de Amoroso, Zahtila and many others.
