Welcome To Wine Country, The Way It Was Meant To Be Done

But we lean forward to the next crazy adventure beneath the skies.
-Jack Kerouac,
On the Road

Every great journey needs a worthy destination. Welcome to ours. We fell in love with a tiny 1950's roadside motel (formerly the Sunburst Calistoga) perfectly placed at the head of the Silverado Trail, in the heart of California's most scenic wine region. We cleaned her up and gave her new life as the Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa - an epic ode to the Great American Road Trip of the 50's, 60's, and 70's, and the spirit of exploration it evokes. Framed by vineyards and bike trails, our stylish Mid-Century Modern digs are the perfect foundation for those looking to find their next great adventure from the perfect home base. Whether it's backroad wine country or a relaxing mineral bath, our backyard can be your backyard, and it's anything but ordinary. 

The Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa Manifesto

  • We believe Napa Valley was made for relaxed, fun frolicking with family and friends. Not pretention.
  • We believe that Calistoga is Napa Valley's best backdrop. And with gorgeous vineyards, boutique wineries, geothermal waters, and a cute boutique-filled downtown, what more could you want?
  • We believe Napa deserves a boutique hotel with unique style and personality in spades.
  • We believe that a hotel is more than a bed. And from our games-filled grounds to our geothermal mineral pools, whimsical spa, and diverse activities, there's much more to do here than just sleep.
  • We believe getaways are one of the best places to make friends. We offer a plethora of places in which to get social.
  • We believe spa is not synonymous with boring. And our MoonAcre Spa and Baths delivers bliss with a dose of whimsy.
  • We believe in our local artists, makers, chefs, and more. And we support them wherever we can.
  • We believe in pools so perfect, you won’t just dip your toes in; you’ll dive in head-first.
  • We believe that some of Wine Country’s best winemakers are the ones that are unknown. And we’re happy to help them be discovered.
  • We believe life’s best moments happen in the company of our dogs. So bring yours along.
  • We believe Wine Country is best explored on two wheels. So grab one of our Priority Cruiser Bikes (for free!), and set-off.
  • We believe that life is best lived in this order: play, soak, eat, drink, spa, explore, sleep, repeat.


The rebirth of the Calistoga Motor Lodge and Spa is far from over, and exciting things - including a new restaurant and bar - are on the horizon. During this transitional period, the property will be undergoing a series of renovations as we prepare our facilities for their Next Great Incarnation.
