For my first two years of college (before dental school) I went to school and lived in Napa Valley. It was beautiful year round. Among one of our favorite little communities in the "Valley" was Calistoga. Tucked into the rolling hills of northern Napa Valley it's the famous historic hot springs resort destination of wine, water, and wellness. You've most likely seen "Calistoga" bottled water. Today the town has a super cute downtown and lots and lots of famous spas!


Napa Valley has so many great honeymoon and wedding destinations. Today, we're featuring Calistoga Ranch. It's up in a canyon, with of course vineyards, oak trees and a great spa. For events they the Wine Cave and Founders Room (above), a great place for a reception and/or after party. Beyond full blown weddings they also have elopement packages as well.

The Ranch also has several lake view venues with large windows & french doors. They can hold events both indoor and outdoor depending on the season.


The Ranch has 46 Guest Lodges that are free-standing, with natural cedar exteriors. I love all the indoor/outdoor spaces. It's a great getaway for both you and your guests! Have a great weekend!
