Nature at Its Best at Russian River

“In all my wanderings upon this earth I had never before traversed so Eden-like a vale as that between Santa Rosa and Mark West. It was nature’s own park. Wild oats, clover and other indigenous grasses intermingled with a profusion of wildflowers of every shade and hue bedecked the broad expanse of plains…” — Former Petaluma Argus editor E.S. Lippitt in the 1800s

This quote encapsulates the very essence of what the Russian River community has been built upon. From Santa Rosa to our beautiful town of Healdsburg, the growth of Sonoma county has been beautiful. For over 100 years, the Russian River has been the summer playground for West Coast California.  Located just a short drive from the San Francisco area and Sacramento, visitors can explore the majestic redwoods, incredible wineries, fine dining and arts, eco-adventures, spa days, river activities and so much more in an incredibly beautiful, natural setting. Here you’ll find places to stay, things to do, restaurants for farm-to-table dining, wineries and tasting rooms. For family holidays or LGBT travelers, a romantic escape or a friends’ getaway, the Russian River is California’s summer vacation destination. With all of this said, we’d like to share with you some of these event and destinations that you can do partake in when you stay with us at the Camellia Inn in Healdsburg.

Sonoma Lake

Russian River

If you are into swimming, camping, hiking or boating then Lake Sonoma is perfect for you. Lake Sonoma isn’t far from the Russian river and is a destination for those of you that want to experience something special. Lake Sonoma isn’t just for people that want to dock their boats, but it’s a place to go camping or hike in order to see some beautiful sights and experience the natural beauty of Sonoma County. Nestled in the beautiful coastal foothills of Sonoma County, California, Lake Sonoma is surrounded by world famous vineyards and land that is rich in history. Created by the construction of Warm Springs Dam in 1983, the lake provides for flood control, irrigation and recreation. When full, the lake has a surface area of more than 2,700 acres and 50 miles of shoreline, forming the perfect setting for a wealth of recreational activities. Lake Sonoma invites you to hike, swim, ride, boat, camp, fish, or hunt at their beautiful lake. https://www.sonomacounty.com/outdoor-activities/lake-sonoma-recreation-area

Say Yes to the Best B and B In Healdsburg

“Don’t make things too complicated. Try to relax, enjoy every moment, get used to everything.” – Angelique Kerber

This is easier said than done when it comes to our lives. Our lives are filled with many unplanned interruptions so it’s hard to find time to relax and get away from the stress of every day life. With that said, if you have the time coming up to get away and take time for yourself, then we suggest you look up our B and B in Healdsburg.

“Room Service”

B and B in Healdsburg

If you are a lover of a good show, then our B and B in Healdsburg has an option for you to enjoy. “Room Service” is a way to let go of the rigors of everyday life. You can get swept away to the year of 1937, where a nimble-witted producer, living on credit with several actors in a Broadway hotel, stumbles onto a great script with an angel that has $15,000 to invest! But when the angel wants to back out, the producer eludes the reluctant angel, outwits creditors, and manages to produce his play in spite of unexpected obstacles in this classic screwball comedy. It’s a great play that will have an Opening Night filled with Bubbly. On Sunday, there will be a post show Discussion. Join them for opening night of any production and stay afterward for a celebratory toast to the cast and crew! Immediately following all Sunday matinees, members of the cast and crew will return to the stage to answer your questions. This event will last until February 10th. But you should book it now because tickets will sell out rapidly. Head over to this website to learn more and to buy tickets. https://www.raventheater.org/
