Calistoga California Lodging

Surrounded by vineyards in the magnificent wine country, Calistoga is the choice spot in the scenic upper Napa Valley. An Americana town full of individual spirit, and famous for its hot spring spas, mud baths, world-class restaurants, award-winning wineries, the Old Faithful Geyser of California and the Petrified Forest. With many attractions and outdoor activities, Calistoga is an idyllic getaway for San Francisco and Bay Area travelers. The Napa Valley Fairgrounds, located in the city limits of Calistoga, is host to the famous Calistoga Speedway, Mt. St. Helena Golf Course, and the Napa County 4th of July celebration.

Calistoga California History

Calistoga was home to an indigenous people known as the Wappo. During the Spanish colonial era of the 1700s, Calistoga and much of the Napa Valley was under the control of Mission San Francisco de Solano. Mission properties were partitioned and disposed of by the Mexican government in the 1830s and 1840s, creating huge ranchos in the Napa Valley.

The first Americans arrived in Calistoga California during the 1840s. Sam Brannan, a wealthy San Francisco businessman and newspaper publisher, was enthralled with Calistoga's hot springs and purchased over 2,000 acres to develop a spa resort reminiscent of the well-known hot springs in Saratoga, New York. Brannan's resort opened to California's rich and famous in 1862. According to legend, during the christening of the area, Brannan, who had overindulged in the evening's festivities, misspoke and instead of declaring the town the Saratoga of California he declared the new area the Calistoga of Sarafornia and so has the name stayed.

Come discover why the National Historic Trust for Historic Preservation chose Calistoga as one of only twelve cities in the United States to be designated a Distinctive Destination. Calistoga has it all . . ., water, wine, and wellness . . . and so much more.   [Top]
