“Poorly planned and stressful vacations eliminate the positive benefit of time away. The less the stress, the more likely you will experience a positive benefit from the time off.

Thanksgiving Spa Getaway at the Camellia Inn

“Julia taught me what it takes to find your way in the world. It’s not what I thought it was. I thought it was all about…I don’t know, confidence or will or luck. Those are all some good things to have, no question. But there’s something else, something that these things grow out of. It’s joy.” — Julie Powell

Have any of you watched the movie Julie and Julia? If you haven’t watched this classic from Nora Ephron, we highly suggest you watch it. If you have seen it than you can understand how rewarding cooking is, but you also understand how stressful it can be. Now, take that stress of cooking and add it to the Holiday season. Oh, my goodness, it feels like you just want to click your heals together like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz and say, ‘There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.”  We don’t want to stress you out any more than you have too when you think about the Holiday season. But, Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away and there’s a lot of cooking, traveling and preparations to be done. With that said, we suggest, coming to our Spa at the Camellia Inn before you begin your preparations. We have many spa options to help get you through this Holiday whirlwind.

Spa Treatments at The Camellia Inn


There are so many amazing reasons to love having a spa getaway. If you can make it happen during the crazy times of the Holiday season, then we believe, it makes it that much more rewarding. A Thanksgiving Spa Getaway is now the opportunity that awaits you. Here is a list and explanation of some of our Spa Treatments and Packages to entice you.

Camellia Signature

We can’t offer a massage at our Healdsburg Spa without a signature treatment. Our Camellia Signature massage is a relaxing Swedish Massage. This signature massage is done by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction so that blood can return to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Deep Tissue

One more spa treatment we have is a Deep Tissue massage. Deep tissue massage works layer by layer through connective tissue and muscles down to the deepest accessible layers to change posture and create freedom of movement by releasing fascial adhesions and chronic muscle contracture. Deep tissue massage therapists use their fingers, thumbs, fists, forearms and elbows to stretch each muscle and fascia layer. It sounds amazing just writing about this spa experience.

Master’s Massage

Another fantastic treatment we offer at our Spa is a Master’s massage. With this treatment, you’ll consult with one of our senior therapists who is trained in many modalities. Our therapist will cater a treatment specifically catered to your body’s needs utilizing many techniques for your ultimate stress relief and relaxation.


Our Spa Reiki treatment is a no-touch, visualization technique that opens the flow of energy throughout your body, which will help you become in tune with your physical, emotional and spiritual levels.

The Camellia Inn-Dulge

The name says it all, Inn-Dulge. The first thing you get, is the option of whichever accommodations you want. Pick the room of your choice, they are all fantastic, it’s an absolute ‘Win-Win.’ Head over to the specials section on our website to learn more about this wonderful package.

Wine Country Date

The next spa special package we offer you is called the Wine Country Date Package. Again, you get to choose the room accommodations that you feel the most comfortable with. The rest of this package is great because it really defines the title of the package. It’s about you and your date. We will lead you in the direction to the most intimate of rooms, and we’ll recommend an extremely intimate restaurant. Click this link to learn more.

Work out Wellness

The Camellia Inn has another spa package to think about.  We love this one because it’s not just for a girl’s weekend, or a romantic couple’s getaway, this package is for friends, family, or can be a romantic getaway. This spa package offers two bicycles that you could use to check out Healdsburg and its wine scene. It includes breakfast, a massage, bath salts and so much more.You can click this link for all information.

Quick Break-Away

For those 1-night wonders, this is the package for you. This Spa package offers you a great experience. This is ideal for one person, but you can make it a two-person experience if you want to. We want you to get away from it all for a little retreat full of treats. For all the info, click here.

Thanksgiving is the time to relax at the Camellia Inn

We all need an escape from the craziness that the Holiday season brings. Planning a spa getaway is a perfect way to help you make it through. We at the Camellia Inn would like to help.

If it’s good enough for Brooke Shields, a Healdsburg Spa Day is good enough for you

“I love getting baths and going to the Korean spas and getting pummeled and scrubbed, and its so hot in the sauna you can’t even stand it. I have to do things in a pretty extreme way to calm down. So a Swedish massage is not going to do it! I need to know that they’re in there with their thumbs and moving stuff around.” – Brooke Shields

Oh, you better believe it Brooke! The longtime actress has it all right with her quote when she discusses the need to calm down. There is no better way to calm down than to have a visit to a spa for a massage in order to let go of the stress that is ailing you; while helping your body rejuvenate properly.

“It’s very important to take care of yourself. Everyone’s lives are so busy. Take at least an hour a day to recharge and do whatever makes you better. For grown-ups, whether it’s a spa, sitting in a park with a book, or coffee, take time for yourself.” – Ana Ivanovic. I think we all can agree with Ana, a former professional tennis player, that taking care of yourself is one of the most important things, if not the most important thing in life.

Downtown Healdsburg – Sonoma County is a Beer Lover’s Dream

“You can’t be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.” Frank Zappa

A little humor goes a long way in our book, but what Frank Zappa is saying about Beer, rings true to us in the Sonoma County Area and most definitely in downtown Healdsburg. The beer scene in Sonoma County is unbelievable. From Petaluma, to Rohnert Park, to Santa Rosa, to Windsor and to downtown Healdsburg there is a vast number of taprooms and breweries to wet that whistle of yours. So for you beer lovers, here is that ultimate list of our most favorite places to drink some tasty beer and some places to eat some great food.

Bear Republic

Downtown Healdsburg

Let’s get started with our prized possession in downtown Healdsburg! That being the Bear Republic Brewing Company which is located on Healdsburg Ave and two minutes away from our downtown Healdsburg Bed and Breakfast. At Bear Republic they take pride in understanding how hops work and how they make beer special. Each one of their beers starts with a unique recipe that incorporates quality ingredients and hand selected hops. You can enjoy seasonal beers and year around beers. We suggest the Hop Shovel and Racer 5. If you head into this downtown Healdsbueg Brewery you can enjoy their Racer X which is a Double IPA that is delicious. This is one of those stops that you’ll be able to enjoy beer and food. They have tasty chicken wings, delicious salads, exceptional burgers and so much more. You’ll delight in everything the Bear Republic Brewing Company is offering in downtown Healdsburg.

Barley & Bine Beer Cafe

This 7-month old taproom is a secret gem. Located about 15 minutes from downtown Healdsburg, Barley & Bine Beer Cafe can offer you an experience like no other taproom we’ve seen around Sonoma County. They have 28 beers on tap in five gallon kegs from breweries all over the state of California. They have Ciders and wine and a delicious food menu that’s expanding as we speak. They have a fresh and tasty Watermelon Salad everyday, Flatbread Pizzas, Tater Tot creations, and Tri-Tip or Pulled Pork Tacos on Friday-Sunday. Barley & Bine Beer Cafe should be on all your lists if you love beer and a great time. The kegs tap quickly and are never the same. That is what makes this place so unique. So take that 15-minute drive from downtown Healdsburg and enjoy this exceptional Windsor Beer Cafe!

Henhouse Brewing Company

Henhouse Brewing Company is the place to be in our opinion! They are not to far from our downtown Healdsburg b&b in Santa Rosa. I don’tthink we can say it any better than they do on their website, so here’s how they describe themselves and we couldn’t agree more, “The HenHouse Brewing Company is an intentional business. Our intention has always been to make beers that you can be proud to drink. We make delicious beers of excellent quality and we make them in ways that anyone would be proud to support by drinking them. Our purpose is not only make beers, but to make living wage jobs, to make careers for our employees, and to make a difference in our community. From top to bottom, our company makes, sells, delivers, and serves beer with this intention and purpose in mind.” We love this place and all its staff. Very friendly and very educated. They offer a food truck on the weekends but don’t hesitate to come during the week because they have little baskets of popcorn. Through and through it’s a great time. We recommend the “Fresh Pots” IPA or their Big Chicken. But they have so many other wonderful choices. Take a Growler to go at a great price.

BeerCraft Tap Room

This taproom is a little bit of a ride from our Downtown Healdsburg Camellia Inn, but well worth the trip. Beercraft offers many things. First off, their tap room is exceptional with about 15 beers on tap that come from all over the place. Their bottle inventory and taps are constantly rotating, so you can always expect 10 to 30 new beers in the store, plus 8 to 10 new beers on tap each week. In addition to many local favorites, they travel out of market to procure beer not available through the local distribution channels.

Stay with us at our Downtown Healdsburg Inn

Honestly, the beer scene in Sonoma County keeps getting bigger and bigger. Our downtown Healdsburg location is a perfect place to begin a beer tasting day or weekend. There are so many more breweries and taprooms not far from downtown Healdsburg, but we wanted to give you some of our favorites to help you get started. Check back in soon, for another list of exceptional breweries and taprooms surrounding our downtown Healdsburg location.
