About Tina Sampath

Me and my husband are both employed in the biotech industry in the Bay Area- Calistoga is our escape from the fog in San Francisco! The Old Toll Road Inn is a dream come true for us - this will be our forever home when we retire.

Our German Shepherds Mesa & Wyatt are huge fans of our Calistoga 'Pine Cone House'.

Tina Sampath purchased this house in 2013

Why Tina Sampath chose Calistoga

Our house provides the best of both worlds- Napa by day, be in downtown Calistoga within minutes where you'll find multiple highly rated restaurants and shops. Enjoy serenity/privacy by night with amazing views from 2 decks.

What makes this house unique

We love the history of Old Lawley Toll Road, a wagon trail to the old mining town of Silverado (made famous in Robert Louis Stephenson's The Silverado Squatters.) Unlike other parts of Calistoga, our home features pure mountain spring water - no sulfur smell!

Wonderful Mountain Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. It served as home base for four couples on our first trip to wine country. We has plenty of room for everyone inside and the outside decks gave us another place to relax and enjoy the spectacular views. The owner, Tina, was very accesable and responsive to any needs. She even helped us find a private chef for a gourmet meal prepared in the well equipped kitchen. Location is private and secluded yet only a short drive to many local family wineries. We would definately return here. Highly recommended.

Comfort in Calistoga

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating my husband's 60th with his two siblings and spouses and my sis and husband. The house was lovely and inviting. We loved sitting on the deck in the evenings enjoying the spectacular mountain views. The full kitchen and large dining table allowed all 8 of us to share breakfast each morning before heading out for the day to explore the many nearby wineries. The road up the mountain to the house is twisty & turny, but don't be rushed and just take it slow. The home is secluded, quiet and private. Tina and her husband are wonderful hosts who anticipated all our needs.We would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit the California wine country!

Lovely secluded property.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8; four couples.

The home is lovely inside and out. Several nice outdoor sitting areas to enjoy the views.

We used the kitchen for breakfast only however it was fully stocked with anything

you could possibly need to prepare the nicest of meals. Wonderful large dining tables inside and out. The bedrooms are nicely decorated with spa linens and fully stocked accessories in the bathrooms. We had a question and was able to speak with the owner immediately. She was very gracious. We hope to return next year.

Beautiful property and views!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the house the first week in October! The views were phenomenal and the house wonderfully appointed for our family and friends visit to Napa Valley. We recommend it to any group of 8. The kitchen was completely outfitted for anything we needed to cook dinner in and could have dinner outside on the deck or inside which accommodated all of us. It was convenient short drive to Calistoga to get our provisions or to dine out in the wonderful restaurants. Thank-you for your hospitality.
