Dr. Wilkinson’s Backyard Resort & Mineral Springs

Dr. Wilkinson’s Backyard Resort & Mineral Springs is an iconic resort and spa destination located in the heart of the charming town of Calistoga. Founded in 1952 by pioneering wellness experts John and Edy Wilkinson, the resort has since become a globally recognized wellness retreat, offering time-honored mud bath and spa treatments, healing mineral pool soaks, and the best of Calistoga right outside its doors. The resort underwent a multimillion-dollar complete renovation, reopening its doors in summer 2021, and features mid-century inspired design with 50 renovated guestrooms, a new restaurant with outdoor seating, a reimagined spa, and many mud bath treatments.
