Talk about being spoiled! Brent and Chris are outrageously welcoming hosts. From their wine and cheese tasting evening to their DELICIOUS gourmet four course breakfast-perfection! And that porch...what a beautiful setting! Can’t wait to return!!

Loved everything about Embrace Calistoga. The bed, so comfy. Hubs said it was his best nights sleep this week. Great amenities (Bvalgari) and phenomenal four-course breakfast. Brent and Chris are so much fun, and they hit a home run with Rmbrace! Thanks for the treat bag guys!

What an incredible stay! Chris and Brent were outstanding hosts. The breakfasts were absolutely amazingly wonderful. The presentation was gorgeous. The evening happy hour was spot on with delicious Napa wines. The place was immaculate! Sheets were very high end and crisp! You will not be disappointed in this place. They are full of recommendations for anything you want to do in the valley! Can’t wait to go back!

This review is LONG overdue. I stayed at Embrace with my family in February and I still picture myself sitting on the gorgeous wrap around porch eating the finest food and drinking the finest wine and the coffee....oh how I loved the coffee. Our rooms were cozy and we instantly felt at home with Brent and Chris. I have been bragging about our trip and recommending this one of a kind B&B ever since. I will be back!!! Oh and their Brie was particularly on point!

We had a short but incredibly sweet one night at Embrace. Chris and Brent are funny, warm and welcoming. Our visit was just wonderful. Our room was nice and comfy, breakfast was delicious and the wine/cheese and company all great. We will be back!

I highly recommend Embrace Calistoga. Chris and Brent are simply wonderful hosts. They are thoughtful, welcoming and interesting people. They also do an excellent job of understanding the needs of each guest as an individual. We thoroughly enjoyed our whole stay - the room, the wine and cheese, the breakfast, the conversation, and the local recommendations all exceeded our expectations. We will be back.

This is our second time with Chris and Brent. We went out of our way to stay again at Embrace Calistoga based on the fun we had the first time. This time was even better. It's a great facility but the highlights are the interaction with "the boys" and the fine breakfast served. They also have the most interesting guests to interact with on the porch (the center of the experience). We will find a way to go back again.

Embrace is a true B&B and a one-of-a-kind place in the best way. Chris and Brent are fabulous hosts. They are welcoming, engaging, and helpful. You instantly feel at home and taken care of. The house is well-maintained and nicely appointed with lots of little touches to make it feel special. The location is perfect on the main street in charming Calistoga. I save the best for last - the four course breakfast. Chris is a phenomenal chef and delivered some of the best breakfast meals I have ever had. It is above and beyond for a B&B breakfast and makes this place stand out even more. I only wish Chris & Brent had B&Bs all over the world so I could take them with me on all my travels. Embrace made a fabulous trip truly remarkable. I cannot recommend this place enough. We look forward to returning for years to come!

Once a year we choose a different location for a mini-family adventure. This year we chose Calistoga, staying at Embrace Bed and Breakfast. As soon as we arrived Brent and Chris were greeting us, helping with our luggage, giving us a tour with instructions and making us feel right at home. We settled in just in time for the evening wine and cheese offering. Wines and cheeses from all over their travels and it was all delicious! We had made dinner reservations for dinners while we were there and Brent and Chris filled in some history on each with their own reviews and recommendations. Breakfast is an experience! Each morning we couldn't imagine that they could come up with anything as creative and delicious as yesterday's four-course gourmet meal, but they did!! We took a hot air balloon ride the next day, LOVED it! We would all happily stay at the Embrace again as everything was perfect for our stay.

Can't say enough good things about both Embrace Calistoga and Chris and Brent. We stayed with two other couples in Feb 2019 and all of us were blown away. The hospitality was over the top (four course breakfast, daily snack bags, daily late afternoon wine and charcuterie). Chris and Brent made sure every need was taken care and spent a lot of time socializing with us and giving us recommendations. The breakfasts were amazing and a great way to start the day. We looked forward to them every day. We have been coming to Napa for over 20 years and have stayed all across the valley and nothing beats Embrace. In fact we have already booked our next visit!
