You’ll wonder how this Victorian in hot-springs haven Calistoga, California, could exude so much history—it was built when Abe Lincoln was president—and still be so contemporary. Push aside the Frette linens and fire up the Illy espresso machine: A private wine cave tasting (at, say, Jericho Canyon) and mud bath (nearby Baths at Roman Spa) await. Afterward, take advantage of the rain shower, stocked with C.O. Bigelow Apothecaries products. Take the shuttle to dinner, then end the day with un-Victorian HBO on the flat screen.
