Napa Valley Redwood Inn

This is where we used to stay when the race started in Napa. The Napa Valley Redwood Inn is located in the heart of Napa Valley in historic Napa. Their central location allows you the opportunity to visit the valley's many attractions without spending all day traveling to get there. You'll get a clean room, color satellite TV, free local phone calls, swimming and complimentary continental breakfast.  Click here for the Napa Valley Redwood Inn. 



Napa County Fairgrounds

This is the way to go. This is where we will be staying. With the beautiful summer weather, camping at the Napa County Fairgrounds is a great way to spend a weekend in Calistoga and be able to afford it. An RV or camper vehicle can get a space and full hook-up for $22.00 to $25.00. Individual campsites are $10.00. All of Calistoga is within walking distance and the entire Napa valley is within skating distance. There are full shower facilities, restrooms, everything you need for a great camping experience in the fabulous Napa Wine Country.


The Calistoga Village Inn and Spa ( http://www.greatspa.com )  You can skate from you door right onto the Silverado Trail.  There are several wineries within skating distance.  The main business district of Calistoga is right down the street.  They have 3 hot mineral pools, a large swimming pool, mudbaths, spa and massage treatments and more

The cottages were built in the 1940s and are surrounded by palm and olive trees, roses and lavender. They vary in size, but all capture the feeling of having your own place in the country.
