I've actually been to Dr. Wilkerson's three times and enjoyed it immensely each time. It's a funky, quirky way to spend an afternoon in Calistoga, a quaint little town in northern Napa. Several packages are available, but this time I did a mudbath and a...More

Picture this- a relaxing mud bath, mineral, steam, then you're told they took a walk in and you'll need to wait 35 min for a massage. Talk about un-relaxing (and un-acceptable). I left without the massage, which defeats the entire purpose.More

I am so sorry to read this review. We did not take a "walk-in". This guest went through his bath routine in about 30 minutes. The mud bath treatment, including the mud bath, whirlpool bath, mineral steam room and blanket wrap usually takes about 1.5...More

I've loved Doc Wilkinson's for years. It's a bit retro and funky with excellent service, wonderful mud baths, outstanding massages, and a touch of true California history. Get "the works" if you really need to recharge and refresh. You will leave a new person.

Dr. Wilkinson is the real deal. Has been in Calistoga for decades. The mud bath is a not to be missed life experience. It's totally safe and clean, the mud is refreshed with boiling water. The only downside is that men and women spa separately....More
