The perfect summer day in DT Calistoga
Take a break from the Calistoga's wine activities and indulge in low-key relaxation in downtown Calistoga. Book a spa appointment and bike over to the Mount View Hotel and Spa. Go well before your appointment and dose up on some vitamin D by the pool, and let your masseuse gently come wake you nearing your appointment time. Once their gentle touch melts you to butter, head back out to the pool get a little more sun or splashes until it's happy hour time at the adjacent Barolo with some killer bar food and drinks, followed by noteworthy farm-to-table dinner at Jole (reservation highly recommended), also on the same property. Pool is only open to hotel and spa guests, so on a particular summer Friday afternoon it was relaxing with similar minded guests - not screaming kids or cannon-balling teens. Now, I'm relaxed and ready for another day of winery-hopping.
