Mount View Hotel and Spa
Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the Mount View Hotel & Spa welcomes guests with mission revival–style architecture, soothing amenities, and well-appointed rooms. Overnighters can rest weary hairdos on featherbeds and duvets in a king deluxe guestroom outfitted with Aveda bath products, cotton-terry bathrobes, and the soothing coos of high-definition TVs (up to a $279 value). Take a dip in the heated outdoor pool, check out an easel and paint and express yourself artistically, or step outside the hotel's front door to take in eyefuls of quaint Calistoga and its myriad attractions. Couples can garnish a night's stay with wine tastings for two at Bennett Lane Winery (a $20 value) and Benessere Vineyards (a $30 value) in nearby St. Helena. After a restful night's sleep, guests are treated to breakfast in bed, served in place of the starchy, unpopular breakfast of bed.
