YOUR WELLNESS RX

Spend the afternoon in our Backyard, indulging in booster foods and invigorating aguas frescas between soaks in our mineral pools and games on the lawn.

After two glasses of local Napa Valley wine, collapse in our newly renovated guest rooms.

When it’s safe to do so, head to the spa for “The Works” — our signature, soothing mud bath and massage treatment.

Soak in our spring-fed mineral pools, detox in our mud baths made with local Calistoga volcanic ash, and drift far, far away, beginning this fall.
