A New Beginning
The year was 1952. Blue Tango played on the jukebox, everyone was reading The Old Man and the Sea, and the Yankees beat the Dodgers in the World Series. Meanwhile in Calistoga, our founders, "Doc" and Edy Wilkinson, were busy crafting the original mud bath which would become famous the world around.
Since our debut in 1952, guests from all of the world have stayed with us to experience a true wellness retreat in Calistoga, taking time for mud baths, mineral pool soaks, and to explore downtown Calistoga steps from our door. We invite guests to experience holistic wellness with a hike up Oat Mine Trail, sample antioxidant-rich wines from tasting rooms just up the road and vintners throughout the valley, and take time to soak away stress right here on property.
We’ve come a long way since 1952. We’re kicking off the new decade with the ultimate wellness treatment—a complete renovation. We will be transforming our property into a modern-day wellness retreat, complete with a new spa, eco-friendly guest rooms, amenities designed for the modern traveler to be well, and a healthy dose of nostalgia from the early days.
