Scale of 90-100
Calistoga Ranch is a tranquil 157-acre resort of 50 cedar-clad freestanding guest lodges, sister property to Auberge du Soleil, in a wooded canyon at the northern edge of the Napa Valley. Owing to original zoning restrictions, lodge bedrooms and living rooms are connected by furnished decks (some with hot tubs); all have fireplaces and outdoor rainfall showers. Calistoga Ranch has no grand public spaces; guests can stroll or be shuttled between a pool/gym area and private Cabernet vineyard at one end of the property and a superb lakeview restaurant and small spa complex with a natural spring-fed mineral pool at the other. A wide swath of activities is available, from hot air ballooning to hiking to wine-blending classes, but the resort seems primarily meant for couples seeking solitude.
