ABOUT THE DOC

About Doc Wilkinson vintage photo

Like a fine Napa Valley wine, some things really do get better with age, and Dr. Wilkinson’s is living proof. 

Doc's Story

Doc was ahead of his time, studying alternative medicine and practicing wellness long before these concepts were in vogue. Doc tapped Calistoga's famous waters and shared the benefits of mineral soaks and mud baths with over a million travelers and wellness seekers from around the globe.

THE ULTIMATE MAKEOVER, NOW COMPLETE

Our history, wellness experiences, and interiors have been fully reimagined for modern travelers. With Doc's ethos, iconic neon sign, and his favorite 1952 Buick parked out front, and with the help of EDG, SB Architects, and Contino Studio, we open our hearts and doors to the public this fall.
