“The new wine country”
Reviewed 5 December 2011

Healdsburg is what Napa and Valley of the Moon used to be, before all the bridal party limousines, tour buses and $20 tasting fees. And the Camellia Inn ftis right in with honest, personal, home town service. Beautiful rooms surrounded in southern style charm and a delicious homemade breakfast. Let them plan your day, and you won't be disappointed.

My family came to Healdsburg for the first time in October 2011 to run in the town's 1/2 and Full Marathon. We booked the 2-bedroom suite located a few blocks from Camillia Inn's main campus on Foss Street. From a location standpoint, it could not be beat--only 1 block from the start and finish of the race on Grove Street. It was also very clean and comfortable. Problems were the 2-bedroom suite or apartment is located on the 2nd floor without any lighting on the outside and on top of the bakery's garbage cans. The cute patio area stunk to the point we could not use it, and the odor emanating when we walked into and out of the apartment was awful. There was night-time noise with the dumping of glass bottles in the dumpsters, which was unfortunate as we needed a good night's sleep before the race, and of course, the dumping woke us up on each instance. The oven had to be unplugged as it kept beeping in the middle of the night. The television provided in the living room was a very old and small one, and frankly, for the room's price, we would have expected mounted wide screen TVs in the living room and 2 bedrooms. Breakfast is not provided to those renting this 2-bedroom suite/apartment, although the "happy hour" wine service at the main building is, and it was lovely. We won't stay in the apartment again, the location notwithstanding, however, we would like to try staying in a room in the main building. Lucy, the innkeeper, was very gracious and helpful. The main building is very cute and clean, and there is a pool in the back. The location of the main building still is close to everything downtown, including the race site.

Our visit to Healdsburg was wonderful, and the downtown is one of the cutest we have ever seen. We will be back, hopefully next year to run in the next race, which was a terrific experience.

This is the second time in the last year we have stayed at the Camelia Inn. The location cannot be beat, just two blocks off the square, but without the noisy bustle that goes with being on the square or the main drag. Our room had a beautiful bay window overlooking the front garden, as well as a fireplace. Innkeeper Lucy is a terrific host, very welcoming and full of knowledge about the area...wineries, restaurants, shopping. And the breakfasts are a good as any B&B we have visited. Wine and cheese at 5 PM, complimentary coffee all day, and fresh-baked cookies in the afternoon. Plenty of offstreet parking, too. We have stayed in two other Healdsburg B&Bs, the Calderwood and the Grape Leaf Inn. And Camelia wins our vote for the best stay, mostly because of Lucy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the ground floor. The beautiful curved staircase is a little difficult to negotia...

You just cannot beat the location and value of Camellia Inn. We have stayed here twice now and loved both visits. You are a very short walk to the square and the rooms are all very nice. Lucy is also just so nice and really makes the extra effort to ensure you enjoy your stay.

We will definitely be back again!

Room Tip: This is a B&B so you have to set your expectations right. We love the Queen Room facing the stre...

It was a lovely relaxing friendly B&B. We booked a family suite with 2 bedrooms and 3 beds for 3 women. It was greatly appreciated after much time on the road. The sheets were the softest I have ever slept on.

So many little touches made it one of the special places we stopped, we had fresh flowers in our room along with bottled water, wine glasses, wine and cheese happy hour every night, the second night they even offered a private wine tasting. We walked in the first night and MMM the smell of fresh cookies permeated the air. They tasted as good as they smelled. They also had a community fridge if you bought stuff to travel with, as I said the little things added up to make things special.

The terrific breakfast was the icing on the cake. They offered smoothies, fresh fruit, yogurt, hot and cold dishes, fresh crunchy crusted sour dough YUM YUM. Again the small touches, butter, margarine, cream cheese and several types of jelly/jam.

You could walk to the square another plus.
