If you’ve had the pleasure to visit the quaint little town of Calistoga, then you’ve enjoyed a throw back community to the new modern towns of US of A. The town is rich with little shops, bed and breakfasts, casual dining; and most famous for the geothermal geography, which leads way to the mud and mineral baths. But amongst the relaxed and personal charm of the laid back community, you’ll find Solage Resort and Spa, next to the old Calistoga Water plant on Silverado Trail. This is a true oasis of luxury in a community full of country lovin’.
While Solage boasts 4 star accomodations and spa treatments, it’s not over the top. I call it minimalist elegance. It is built to not intrude upon the natural surroundings. All one story buildings with little invasion into its natural surroundings.
And if you don’t want to stay overnight, stop in to SolBar, their restaurant with amazing food; amazing settings. I’ve taken many out of towners there for lunch who simply said without saying by the expressions on their faces, this is paradise.
Ok, southern Napa Valley has a some of the finest dining in the country, but don’t overlook/underestimate what the little town charm of Calistoga has to offer.
