Making gay news in Calistoga: Advocate says Solage the place to honeymoon

This blurb came from The Advocate online, in an article titled "The Honeymoon Phase" about great getaways to compliment your same-sex marriage. Calistoga gets the shout out this time. Thanks, Rick, for the heads up:

Calistoga, Calif.’s Solage is Napa Valley’s latest hot spot. With the largest champagne list in the area, the hotel’s restaurant, Solbar, is an ideal place for newlyweds to toast their nuptials. The simple but stylish 89-room resort feels relaxed and sexy, with young guests biking to the pool in bikinis, meandering to the spa in robes, or nibbling on fruit and toast poolside.

The free bike rentals make exploring the town -- prized for its healing spa waters -- a breeze. Don’t forget a visit to Copia, the nearby educational center devoted to winemaking and the culinary and visual arts (, where you can check out a myriad of herb, fruit, and vegetable gardens or the revolving cultural exhibits on food lore and history.

I'm not sure about how they're recommending bikes for Calistoga and a trip to Copia in the same breath--that's a 28.5 mile bike ride! I'm sure some of us gays could handle it, but it's not exactly "breezy" as claimed. ;) Stick to bikes in town and tour the valley in a rental (or heck, go big and get a limo!).

I've also heard that Lavender Hill Spa is amazing, although I have yet to experience a treatment there. What other great honeymoon spots do you recommend in the Napa Valley?
