As stunning as this house is, artist/owner/hosts Carlo Marchiori and Tony Banthutham are equally fascinating company ! Thank you for welcoming us soon to be Calistoga residents.
Meeting Jill & Robert in an Indian restaurant in San Francisco was serendipity. I believe, if not a year ago, because of many shared interests, our paths were bound to cross. Thank you for another amazing evening, dear friends. We always love a visit to your beautiful home.
Meeting creative Calistoga business owners is a lot of fun and especially so when chocolate is involved. Thank you Laura for meeting with us today and discussing how we could work together when we open. These are delectable confections we may be offering at turn down service. Believe me, it will be hard to turn…
Every so often we receive memorabilia from the community on the James Francis House or The Calistoga Hospital. Senator Art Torres’ sister passed this article to us from the Calistoga Tribune of December 2006. So much history and for some neighbors, so much memories.
The best part of moving to Calistoga is knowing that I will be around these lovely and kind friends. Thank you Marta and Lee for organizing and hosting this welcome party. We cannot wait to be part of this beautiful community.
Mayor Chris Canning came today to visit and see how the project is shaping up. Thank you for your support Mayor Canning !
Road closed at the corner of Spring and Myrtle Streets today to facilitate the new sewer and water line installation.
Street drilling and trenching for new 8″ water pipes for the Francis House and a block beyond! Our gift to the City.
I was astonished that we had to replace the water pipes ! Well, fifty years ago (when the property was last inhabited) they had an inch diameter cast iron water pipes. I wouldn’t think that would be safe for me, for our guests so here are new 8″ vinyl water pipes for the Francis House.…
A good friend of ours passed by the Francis House today and shared a conversation of some passersby on Harley’s: “How wonderful that this building is being restored after 50 years of abandonment.”
