A Sonoma County Bed and Breakfast
The Camellia Inn is a charming 1869 Italianate Victorian Inn in California’s Wine Country where Old World vintage charm blends perfectly with modern luxury amenities to provide an affordable Healdsburg bed and breakfast Inn experience. Nine rooms and suites provide a choice of options including whirlpool tubs, in-room fireplaces, iPod docking clock radios, private sitting rooms and king or queen size beds. Luxury linens with 600-thread count feel, in-room iPads, cotton robes and chocolate are a few of the standard guest comforts provided. Evenings mean Sonoma County wine and cheese tasting in the elegant parlor or out by the flower-decked pool in warmer months. Breakfast is a seasonal selection of farmers market fresh egg dishes, fruits and bounty from the same earth that thrilled famed horticulturist Luther Burbank and still inspires Sonoma County winemakers.
Please note that our Sonoma County Bed and Breakfast has a two or three night minimum for most Saturdays and holiday periods.

Lucy Lewand, Owner and Innkeeper
With more than 25 years of bed and breakfast experience, Lucy Lewand and her staff know how to make your stay in the Sonoma Wine Country a long remembered getaway. Lucy learned about Innkeeping from her parents Ray and Del Lewand who opened and ran the Inn, the first official Inn in Healdsburg, for many years.
“I am so lucky to live in heart of wine country. Besides hosting guests – I take ballroom dancing lessons, am a member of 2 book clubs ( gourmet potlucks), love movies and community activities. I’ve been lucky to travel the world with friends and family. Archie and I also host live Celtic music several times a year at the inn and in January/February put on a Robert Burns dinner!
I am also fortunate to have the best staff on the planet – my housekeepers have been with us for almost 30 years!! We are around most of the time but when we’re out our innkeepers can help guests with whatever they need.” -Lucy
