Carlin’s Country Cottages, a motor court–style hot springs resort, may be found in a more suburban area of Calistoga. These cottages offer peace and quiet to their guests. The resort features quaint villas, each with its own private outdoor pool and jacuzzi, all of which are supplied with mineral water drawn from the area’s natural hot springs.

Carlin’s Cottages has been owned and operated by the same family for the past two generations. In 1994, San Francisco residents Dennis and Lorrie Carlin took the drive up to Calistoga, which is located at the very top of Napa Valley, in order to purchase a multi-unit property there.

Over the course of the past quarter of a century, everyone of their six children has contributed to the family business in some capacity. On a bright day, it is possible to spot the original owners of the property as well as their offspring lazing about on the front porch of the Cottage Court.
