U.S. News Review

When you can simply borrow a Mercedes-Benz for an afternoon drive through wine country at no extra cost, you know you're experiencing the epitome of luxury. Here at Calistoga Ranch in northern Napa Valley, guests rejoice in sumptuous amenities that include the Mercedes-Benz Drive Program, a private lake, a private wine cave, outdoor showers adjacent to your room, ready-to-go picnic baskets and more. And when they need a little R&R, visitors head to Calistoga's spa for outdoor lakeside treatments, spring-fed pools or a Cabernet wine bath. If you'd rather drink wine than bathe in it, head to The Lakehouse where vino makes the perfect accompaniment to the restaurant's California cuisine. Luxury travelers say they relish the privacy and comfort offered in this Auberge resort's free-standing lodges, which feature fireplaces, private cedar decks and outdoor rain showers, not to mention floor-to-ceiling windows, original artwork and warm, wooden decor.
