“Wonderful Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2009

Judy took great care of us. Her morning breakfasts were fantastic! Even some of our picky eaters (children) loved her cooking. The rooms were very clean and comfortable.

Our son had given us a gift certificate for a stay at the Chelsea Garden Inn for our 50th wedding anniversary and we enjoyed our visit immensely. Our Host and Hostess were both extremely gracious and made us feel very comfortable. The rooms were clean and well decorated. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise, something you would find at a five star restaurant. The Inn is located on a quiet street, however only a short walk to the funky town of Calistoga.

The area is loaded with many places to see and experience including a number of spas specializing in mud baths, a petrified forest, an active gyser and of course many wineries. There are a number of fine restaurants within a short drive. We had an excellent dining experience at the "Martini House" in nearby St. Helena, which was highly recommended by our hostess Sunshine.

Not only would I highly recommend the Chelsea Garden Inn, we plan on goiing back in the near future.

Spent 3 nights with friends, taking over the whole inn. The place was perfect for this purpose as the main area has a great room that acts as the breakfast/afternoon appetizer area, living room, kiitchen--and then has one room upstairs. We were able to gather in the evening around the fireplace and really make ourselves at home. The pool area also had chairs and tables that we used when the weather was nice. I don't think I'd ever stay here outside of the group though as the husband/wife management team were not very welcoming (Harold, the husband, seemed almost grumpy/surly at times--he was finally friendly when we were leaving!! Glad to see us go?) This was the consensus of the whole group. Whereas at other inns, we've been warmly welcomed, I had to go up and introduce myself to them the first morning. Weird. Breakfasts were good except for one morning where every course was sweet. Great for the group of 10, not our style for individuals.

That's how I would describe Sunshine and her husband Harold. They not only made me feel welcome but my cat Grace as well. Which I find to be a very rare thing these days. The breakfasts were fabulous----kept me full almost until dinner. The inn's location is off Calistoga's main drag which keeps the inn quiet, but it's a quick walk to all of Calistoga's restaurants, shops, spas, and activities. I hope to return to Chelsea Garden Inn and Sunshine and Harold in the near future.

I have stayed at this B&B many times over the years, both as Scott Courtyard and under its current ownership. As usual, love the rooms, there are several that are "suites" so that it is very reasonable if you have family with you. Location is very convenient as you can walk to everything in Calistoga. Hosts have always been outstanding and the current couple, Harold and Sunshine, are no exceptions. I have to say Harold is the best cook by far. Lots of wineries to visit in the area, and food in town is great. As always, I had a relaxing time, restful, and most enjoyable thanks to the hosts.

It was my husband's birthday and my mom & I found Chelsea Inn last minute , what a great treasure we found! We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the the Flat Iron from the recommendation given by Sunshine and then continued our celebration on our patio from the Garden Room. Wonderful memeories were made and we hope to bring our children for our next stay at the Inn.

Called the Chelsea Garden Inn at the last minute and begged for two rooms for one night for a treat for our son-in law's birthday! They called back in an hour and had a cottage and the garden suite available. The rooms were full of character and the beds extremely comfortable. They were one block from the main street and we were able to walk everywhere! And yes, the breakfast was fantastic! Even my husband is still talking about it! Also, it is the perfect location for going to the castle and to Sterling's for the lift ride for a great view of the vallley!
