Calistoga Ranch, Napa Valley
Every hour is golden hour and there is a wine for every mood and season. If you’ve never been to Napa, then you deserve to go, and if you have been, you deserve to experience this Napa: Calistoga Ranch, a 157-acre luxury resort that boasts a spa, private restaurant, and 50 freestanding guest lodges nestled amid ancient, leafy oaks.
Every lodge is a Craftsman jewel with its own fireplace, cedar deck, and outdoor shower garden. Make no mistake, this is true luxury travel: bed linens are from Italy, a $700 two-hour Ultimate Chocolate Indulgence spa treatment (a dark-chocolate espresso scrub, chocolate milk bath, and cocoa butter massage) for couples. Rates for guest lodges begin at $906; the 2,400-square-foot Estate Lodge can be had for $3,416 (exclusive use of a Mercedes is included). calistogaranch.com
