An open weekend poses the same dilemma as an open fridge: you can never decide what you want for vacation. Sample a smorgasbord of spirits and sensuality at one of two Napa Valley B&Bs that have even celebrity chefs from major food channels lining up for more in Calistoga, California.
Help yourself to a two-night stay for two in the Napa Room or Rutherford Room at The Wine Way Inn from November 5, 2012 through March 31, 2013, Sundays through Thursdays ($199) or Fridays and Saturdays ($299). The cozy fireplace, redwood deck, and garden in view of Mount St. Helena at Calistoga's oldest bed and breakfast will whet your appetite for Napa Valley's historic beauty. Or, you can pile on the perks in the Howell Room or the Palisades Room at The Craftsman Inn, Sundays through Thursdays ($299) or Fridays and Saturdays ($449), and bask in the glow of L'Occitane amenities, soft spa robes, and flat-screen TVs.
Eyes and mouths open wide to a complimentary multi-course breakfast each morning with offerings from Gillian Kite's Inn Food Cookbook like poached pears and pumpkin pie scones, sausage plaits, quiche, applewood-smoked bacon, and fresh wild morel omelettes with Parmesan cheese and truffle oil. Order relaxation spa la carte from Lavender Hill with your $50 gift certificate good toward Swedish massages, reflexology, acupressure, couples baths, foot rubs, and seasonal pumpkin-spice salt glows.
Local flavors fill your plate in the afternoon with coupons for 15 percent off wood-fired, fresh Italian pizza or a free appetizer at Boskos. Napa Valley is wine-drinker's utopia, so uncork a cornucopia of vintages with two-for-one tasting tours at select wineries including Rios Brothers, Summers, August Briggs, Bennett Lane Winery, and Charbay.
As the sun sets, loosen your belt—from Jole's farm-to-table seasonal fare to the chic-casual eating at Solage, you'll find dining at all of Calistoga's fine restaurants to be like biting off more than you can chew.
With a room for less in the warm belly of Napa Valley, you won't feel guilty about making another trip to this B&B's buffet of wholesome food, wines, and winsome country scenery.
