"My wife and I spent one night at the Brannan Cottage Inn while visiting San Francisco. We very much enjoyed the atmosphere in Calistoga after a drive through Napa and stopping for the winery tours. Brannan Cottage Inn is a great stop. Owners Doug and Judy Cook could not have been more accommodating The room was in excellent condition and the property is well maintained in a residential neighborhood. We had a great time wine tasting on the patio with the other guests in the evening and the breakfast in the dining room was a great start to the day. We would highly recommend this inn for a pleasant stay in Napa Valley."
