Backyard Garden Oasis

What a great find!! My dog Roxy was beside herself in the spectacular fenced yard and the room was perfect for me with a huge, comfy bed. Greta supplies fresh ground coffee and cream too! The room has a refrigerator but no way to heat food which was fine for me because I had sandwich and salad fixings. The road to/from Calistoga is a bit twisty so bear that in mind if you’re going back and forth like I was every day. That won’t stop me from making this my go-to spot any time I’m in the Calistoga area. Greta is a gracious host! The breakfasts have great reviews but I had my own food so didn’t partake. I can’t recommend this place highly enough especially if traveling with dogs!

Backyard Garden Oasis. So fitting. We loved every part of our experience. Greta, the owner who built the cabins from a blank slate 22 years ago, is a true B&B host and a delight to chat with. Like her cabins, she and her dog Rusty are welcoming, charming, and completely in their element. We really appreciated Greta’s attention to detail and love for dogs! Out of the ‘pet friendly’ options in the Calistoga area, this fit our needs perfectly. It is more like a dog sanctuary, with the large yard, doggy bowls, treats and plastic bags waiting for you when you arrive. The cabins were lovely too. Comfortable, spacious, and the tea and coffee bar were a nice touch. The yard was peaceful, and fun the walk around. Like a true B&B, Greta makes breakfast each morning for you! Delicious waffles or French toast, a side of bacon or sausage, and fresh berries. She even has a hot tub, which was nice to come back to. Greta, thank you for being so accommodating! There were so many highlights! Background Garden Oasis has certainly made us feel at home.

Backyard Garden Oasis consist of three cabins surrounded by tall trees and country air. The owner, Greta, is a wonderful host. She cooks up great breakfasts and is so helpful. My husband and I had great conversations with her and enjoyed playing with her dog Rusty. Middletown is a small town away from the hustle and bustle and the Backyard Garden Oasis is a comfy place to kick back and relax.

My wife was to attend her 50th high school reunion in Angwin. I started to look for a place that was quaint, romantic, and a wallet killer. We were there during Crush Week thus it made finding a place alittle more difficult, when I came across Backyard Garden Oasis. The reviews were all hgreat and I wanted a little quieter place then the last time we were up there. The last time we stayed at a nice B n B right in St Helena. It was conienient but the road noise was terrible. Well, Backyard Gardens was quite and a little out of the way but Greta and the cabin made up for it. The cabin is actually in her backyard among her garden and mature trees. The cabins were separated for privacy and well appointed. We had a great time and will stay there again. Thank you Greta.

Backyard Garden Oasis was outstanding! The visit was so relaxing and tranquil. It felt like a home away from home, but better! We had a homemade breakfast every morning that was delicious. The amenities were perfect. I highly recommend and hope to stay again! thank you so much!

After arriving, we were immediately greeted by Greta. She showed us to our cottage and then checked-in after we relaxed. My husband, mother-in-law, 4 dogs and I were welcomed with open arms as we arrived. Our full breakfasts were absolutely delicious each and every day with something special every morning. The setting was so relaxing, peaceful and quiet. Thank you Greta for turning such an unexpected day into the most pleasant mini vacation EVER.

Very relaxing sat on the porch area watching the humming birds feed after a day touring Napa valley. Great host and lovely freshly cooked breakfast each day. Comfortable room and bed a great place to stay

We stayed three nights as the result of a family wedding nearby. The B&B has three one-room cabins in a quiet wooded setting behind the main house. The rooms are a nice size, beds comfortable, and baths with showers up to date. Coffee and tea-making facilities, TVs, strong WiFi, and roomy closets are most welcome. The owner, Greta, is an intelligent and delightful person, and we looked forward to our breakfast conversation that covered many topics. One morning we had French toast, another an omelet with a choice of ingredients, and the third huevos rancheros. Fresh cut up fruit and muffins or toast are also available.

Couldn't have asked for more at Backyard Garden Oasis. Lovely little cabin in the garden with some decking where we sat in the evenings sipping local wine and watching the hummingbirds. Great is a superb hostess and Rusty the dog was great fun. The breakfasts were excellent.The accommodation was very comfortable and we spent our days walking up St Helena at nearby Robert Louis Stevenson park, dove ground pretty Clear Lake and enjoyed delicious wine tasting. Highly recommended

The cottage is situated in the huge backyard of the host's house. It is a very nice room: spacious, nicely designed and equipped with a refrigerator, TV, coffee machine. The bed was very comfortable and the surrounding calm and quiet. There are 3 cottages in the yard, Ours had a nice deck with chairs and a round table. The host was very friendly.
