B&B Healdsburg CA: The Best Parts of Wine Country

As anyone staying in a b&b healdsburg ca could tell you, wine country is about a lot more than just wine. There are all kinds of great activities you can get into. Even though the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is only 90 minutes away driving, there is a lot to marvel at even in this fairly small town.

Places to Visit When Yous Stay at Our B&B Healdsburg CA

A Tasty Start to Your Day

White cup filled with tea surrounded by fresh fruit and oats, boiled egg, cheery tomatoes, fresh oranges and orange Juice, a bagel and croissant Early in the day, one of the best things you can do after waking up in your b&b healdsburg ca is to pop down to the Costeaux French Bakery for some bistro cuisine. Once you’ve had your fill, you have some options to begin digesting your meal, such as strolling through what Travel+Leisure Magazine voted among the top town squares in the entire country.

Fun in Town

Staying in your b&b healdsburg ca isn’t the whole reason you came here, so heading out is worth the time. If you want to get out of the mid day sun for awhile, you can check out plenty of boutiques in the Mill Street Antiques Plaza, across 15,000 square feet of retail space. You can wait until the sun gets a bit lower in the sky while looking through knickknacks at the Antique Harvest, and still get your steps in.

If you are feeling like seeing something produced a bit more recently, there are two dozen art galleries within a reasonable walk of the plaza. Whether you want to see something by local artists, or something done in a traditional local style, you have a number of options. As evening comes on, you can remember that this entire area is called wine country for a reason. Wine Country Walking Tours let you dine and sip. If you are less hungry, the Let’s Go Wine Walk lets you sample different local wines for three whole hours.

Heading Out for Awhile

If you are less interested in city life, you can find a lot to enjoy outside of town. Go for a long nature stroll, a run if you feel up to it, or hop on a mountain bike through Healdsburg Ridge Open Space Preserve. Spoke Folk Cyclery and Wine Country Bikes are great places to get the perfect two wheeled steed. Just make sure to stay hydrated and take enough breaks to avoid getting overheated, as the temperatures rarely get lower than 40 degrees even in the winter. Contact us for more information.

Visit the Camellia Inn this Fall!

Autumn is one of the best times of year to come to the Camellia Inn, where the weather and the blooms are just a few of the great reasons to stay. The history never stops, and neither do all the fun things to do in Healdsburg California.

Experience Camellia Inn

Smiling woman in coat playing with leaves during fallSpa treatment is especially fun during the fall, since it lets you relax a bit before all of the stresses that the end of the year brings on. At the Camellia Inn, you can have one of our licensed massage therapists come right to your room and deliver relaxation that will help all your cares melt away.

If you want to take a stroll, you will have plenty to see. Outside the Camellia Inn’s 1869 Victorian building, there are more than 50 different kinds of camellia flowers to see. The area has been awash in diverse plant life since the Victorian era, when camellias were the most popular type of flower around. Professionals in the horticultural field Dr. Seawell and Luther Burbank worked in both researching and planting the Healdsburg gardens that are still well known, leaving a legacy you can still enjoy today.

Camellias have always stood for loveliness and excellence in the Language of Flowers. Since some camellias only bloom during the autumn, you will get to experience something different from what the snow birds and summer stayers get to see. If you have never stayed during the fall, the views alone are worth it, even though you might not want to take a dip in the pool if the temperature gets under 60.

Healdsburg is a great place to visit, even as the fall begins to succumb to the winter chill. Even in November, the temperature rarely gets below the mid 40s, and there are less than 7 days with rain. Clear skies and only a mild chill make visiting the Camellia Inn a wonderful respite for the near end of the year.

Healdsburg itself is an amazing place to visit, with a laid back culture that produces some of the finest wines in the country. Often voted one of the top 10 best small towns in the US, strolling and shopping in Healdsburg is a great way to spend time. The fact that the Camellia Inn provides you with a host of wine vouchers means you can sample a tremendous number of delicious libations that are all made locally. Contact us for more information.

Healdsburg Breakfast – Enjoy with the Kids

“I love breakfast! Not only is it the most important meal of the day, but I loved waking up to – the smell of bacon in the morning was my favorite thing as a kid!” — Rachel Hollis

The smell of Sizzling bacon, fresh brewed coffee, Hot maple Syrup and so many more breakfast smells gets us all excited to dig in and fill our bellies. Fresh fruit, Orange Juice, Pancakes oh my! Scrambled Eggs, Sausage, Avocado Toast Oh My. Sorry, we went full breakfast Wizard of Oz mode right there. But breakfast is such an important meal and it can be had at any time of the day in our opinion. Our Healdsburg Breakfast at the Camellia Inn is obviously a great option for you when you stay with us. But the Healdsburg Breakfast scene is sensational, so we’d like to give you an idea of what that scene looks like.

Costeaux French Bakery & Café

Healdsburg Breakfast

We can’t start this breakfast list off without first talking about Costeaux French Bakery & Café. They are located on Healdsburg Ave, which is only a few minutes away from the Camellia Inn. Costeaux’s is extremely popular here in Healdsburg. Their reach goes even deeper with their exceptional breads and pastries being delivered to many other restaurants and businesses all throughout Sonoma County. This Healdsburg Breakfast staple has menu items from Omelette’s, to Avocado toast, to Monte Cristo Sandwiches, to so many other delicious options. We highly recommend this Healdsburg breakfast staple when you come to our beautiful town. Head over to their website so you can look their entire menu over. http://www.costeaux.com/

Skillets Cafe

Okay, so this restaurant isn’t a Healdsburg Breakfast choice, but it’s only a ten-minute drive away. Skillets is located in Windsor, which is just South of Healdsburg. We’ve eaten there a handful of times and many of our guests have as well. From the Garden Skillet, to the Country Skillet, to The Mexican Skillet, to breakfast sandwiches and Omelettes, Skillet’s Café has you covered. It’s not a Healdsburg Breakfast location but it is a solid option for you and your family to enjoy. Don’t hesitate to head to Windsor to enjoy Skillets Café. They don’t have a website, but they open at 6am every morning and close by 3pm. Head over there, you won’t be disappointed. 

Ana’s Café and Espresso

Another great Healdsburg Breakfast place to go to is Ana’s Café and Espresso. Honestly, their breakfast menu isn’t extravagant, but it’s delicious. Their breakfast burritos are exceptional as are their breakfast sandwiches. The coffee and espresso drinks shouldn’t be ignored. Ana’s Café and Espresso will treat you right and get you back on the road quicker than most other restaurants. This Healdsburg Breakfast business doesn’t have a website, but they open at 5 am everyday but on Sunday they are closed. Check this Healdsburg Breakfast spot out, it’s a little gem!

The Brass Rabbit

The next Healdsburg Breakfast spot we want to tell you about is The Brass Rabbit. This Healdsburg spot is open everyday from 5pm to 9pm. But on Saturday and Sunday they open their kitchen up at 9 am for an exceptional Brunch menu. This menu is filled with items like Avocado Toast, Brioche French Toast, Spring Vegetable Frittata, Benedict, a simple Two egg breakfast and a plethora of other choices for you.

The Parish Café 

The final Healdsburg Breakfast restaurant we want to bring to your attention is the New Orleans inspired Parish Café. This is one of Healdsburg’s best breakfast joints because everything you can imagine about New Orleans cuisine is brought to life at The Parish Café. They serve hand-made beignets that are rolled out fresh when ordered and quickly deep-fried and smothered in powdered sugar. The chef has a handful of Louisiana styled breakfast meals that include Eggs Nouvelle Orleans. This includes a generous amount of poached eggs, mounds of sweet blue crab meat, silky house-made hollandaise and a scattering of shallots on crisp buttered French bread. This is just a small sample size of what to expect at the Parish Café. Head over to the following website to look their menu over. http://theparishcafe.com/home/healdsburg/

Healdsburg Events – There’s So Much To Do Here

“The early influences, in many ways, were in Baltimore. I was passing open windows where there might be a radio playing something funky. In the summertime, sometimes there’d be a man sitting on a step, playing an acoustic guitar, playing some kind of folk blues. The seed had been planted.” – Jerry Leiber

This quote by the late musician and songwriter Jerry Leiber doesn’t say that much about the topic of our blog post, but it caught our eye for a few reasons. The visual of a musician sitting on the stoop playing a guitar during the summer is the natural vibe that our town of Healdsburg can offer anyone. We live by the idea that you are a unique individual and can come here, be yourself and enjoy all of our unique businesses, people and sights. With that idea in mind, Healdsburg has several upcoming summer events for you to enjoy. Let’s take a look.

Revitalize Your Bodily Cells with an Aromatherapy Massage

“I believe that for every illness or ailment known to man, that God has a plant out here that will heal it. We just need to keep discovering the properties for natural healing.” — Vannoy Gentles Fite

We don’t know if you believe in God like the author of this quote, but we believe that there are treasures in nature that can heal some of our ailments. The main truth we took from this quote is, we shouldn’t close ourselves off to the possibility that there are so many undiscovered and discovered remedies for natural healing. Having an Aromatherapy massage is one of those discovered properties that promotes natural healing. We would love for you to continue reading this blog post so we can help you understand what Aromatherapy is, how an Aromatherapy Massage might help you recover, relax or rejuvenate your mind, body and soul.

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy Massage

Before we dive into what an Aromatherapy Massage entails and the benefits, let’s talk about what Aromatherapy is and where it derived from. The origin of Aromatherapy, according to the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy is this, “It was the French perfumer and chemist, Rene- Maurice Gattefosse, who coined the term “aromatherapie” in 1937 with his publication of a book by that name. His book “Gattefosse’s Aromatherapy” contains early clinical findings for utilizing essential oils for a range of physiological ailments. It seems vital to understand what Gattefosse’s intention for coining the word was, as he clearly meant to distinguish the medicinal application of essential oils from their perfumery applications.” What you should take from this NAHA excerpt is that Aromatherapy is achieving Holistic healing with essential oils through therapeutic medicinal use.

We know We Know you want to know the Benefits.

Of course, you want to know the benefits of an Aromatherapy Massage. Why else would you be here, right? The benefits of an Aromatherapy massage start with an open mind. We believe this is instrumental in the natural healing process. Not just with an Aromatherapy massage but any Spa Treatment in general. Opening your mind to the possibility that essential oils derived from plants or flowers is key to allowing your body to accept the healing process.

How Does an Aromatherapy Massage Work?

There are so many reasons why you might need an Aromatherapy massage treatment. Some of the most specific reasons why are due to stress, being extremely tired, overworked, achy, and sick. With these types of ailments, you won’t want a massage that is a strenuous, deep tissue type of massage. An aromatherapy massage is perfect for you. The Aromatherapy massage wants to heal your body and mind through essential oils. You don’t always need a massage to work out the kinks. But you need something to restore balance to yourself.

The Major Benefits of Aromatherapy Massage

There are many benefits that will come out of your Aromatherapy Massage, and there are those essential oils that can and will be used along with it. Here is a list of some of the ailments that can be helped through an Aromatherapy Massage and the oils that may be used

Relieves Stress

We all deal with some form of stress in our lives. We may not ever find a cure for it, but there is a way to reduce it and that’s through an Aromatherapy massage. The essential oils used to reduce stress are lemon oil, lavender, bergamot, peppermint, clary sage, vetiver, and ylang-ylang essential oils

Acts as Antidepressant

Aromatherapy Massages are such an important way to help with depression. It has been studied that this type of massage with these following oils play a great part in helping those afflicted with this disease find natural healing. Those oils are, rose, chamomile, lavender, jasmine, nutmeg, lemon, bergamot, anise

Increases Energy Levels

We all could use a boost in energy so an Aromatherapy massage can be the answer. The best essential oils for giving yourself an energy boost include black pepper, eucalyptus, grapefruit, lemongrass, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, angelica, jasmine, tea tree, rosemary, and sage.

Reduces Headaches

Isn’t one of the biggest issues most of us face an annoying or reoccurring headache? You never know when they are going to come or how excruciating they may be. But, using an Aromatherapy Massage with these essential oils will help reduce your headaches: eucalyptus, grapefruit, lemongrass, rosemary

Regulates Sleep

The oils than can be used during an Aromatherapy massage that can regulate sleep are Roman chamomile, clary sage, marjoram, patchouli

The Camellia Inn and an Aromatherapy Massage

Therapeutic Massage – A Vital Component in Pain Management

“For many people, managing pain involves using prescription medicine in combination with complementary techniques like physical therapy, acupuncture, yoga and massage. I appreciate this because I truly believe medical care should address the person as a whole – their mind, body, and spirit.” Naomi Judd

Therapeutic Massage

Naomi Judd hit the nail on the head with this quote. We completely agree with her that medical care, no matter what that might consist of shouldn’t be dedicated to just one area. The type of medical issues you have greatly affect your entire way of life. So, each treatment should focus on getting your mind, body and soul back into congruence with one another. One way we at the Camellia Inn believe can help your mind, body and soul come back together is through a therapeutic massage.

What is a Therapeutic Massage?

Before we get into what we offer by way of a Therapeutic Massage, we’d like to define it first. A Therapeutic massage is a general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem you are having. For example, this may be a shoulder or ankle that is hurting or unable to be moved. There is a big difference between Therapeutic Massages and Deep Tissue Massages. People tend to assume that these massages are the same but there is a difference. While having a Therapeutic Massage, there isn’t the need to administer excruciating pain in order to get results. Deep tissue massage, is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. The pressure will generally be more intense than a relaxing Therapeutic massage.

What are the benefits of a Therapeutic Massage?

Just as Naomi Judd stated in her quote above, your mind, body and soul have to be addressed as a whole. Everything is affected when it comes to an injury, a sickness, or fatigue. When it comes to a Therapeutic Massage, there are an amazing amount of benefits. Everyone is different, all our bodies respond differently to treatments, medicine, or whatever you’ve decided to use. There’s no timetable for recovery, but most everyone that has a Therapeutic massage with us has said they’ve benefited. Some of the benefits to look for are these. There is a recovery from some anxiety issues. We have heard that there is a relief from some digestive disorders. Other ailments that we’ve been told people have seen a recovery from are Fibromyalgia, Headaches, Insomnia related to stress, Myofascial pain syndrome, Soft tissue strains or injuries, Sports injuries, Temporomandibular joint pain.

Check us out!

Our Healdsburg Camellia Inn has you covered when it comes to Therapeutic Massages. With the information we provided about therapeutic massage, here is a list of what we offer at the Camellia Inn.

Camellia Signature

This signature massage is done by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction so that blood flow can return to the heart.

Some of the Most Exciting Spa Specials and Packages

“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

Ana Is a Serbian Athlete that must take care of her mind, body and soul in order to be the very best at what she does. When she speaks of taking care of yourself, for even just an hour, it’s a bit of advice that we should all consider. Like Ana said, one way you can take care of yourself is to book a Spa treatment. Ana mentioned coffee, a book, or sitting in the park as all options to recharge your batteries. Our Camellia Inn located in downtown Healdsburg is surrounded by wonderful coffee shops, parks, great places to eat and so much more. Our Spa, though, is a huge attraction, and the reason to keep reading this blog post.

Special and Packages

Let’s jump right into this thing, shall we? Through the years, we at the Camellia Inn have dedicated ourselves to creating a set of Spa specials and packages that we believe any future client will enjoy. Here are a few that we’d like to highlight:

The first special we think is unique and enjoyable is called “A Special for Golfers.” This is a combined Spa and Golf package.

Visit Camellia Inn Any Time of Year

“I think if I took therapy, the doctor would quit. He’d just pick up the couch and walk out of the room.” –Don Rickles

If you’ve read our blog posts before, we think it’s fun to start with a little humor, and there’s no better person to quote than Don Rickles. He was as funny as funny can be, and he lived his whole life trying to bring joy through laughter. He completely succeeded in his profession. We at the Camellia Inn are trying to live by his hard work and dedication to a craft. Our craft at the Camellia Inn, is to bring you as much joy as possible when you stay with us. We are always trying to upgrade what we do and what we can offer you so you, your family, or your relationship can feel like you are getting everything you possibly can when you stay with us.

We promise, there’s something for everyone. https://camelliainn.com/specials-packages/

The Gardens at the Camellia Inn

Our Gardens at the Camellia Inn have been flourishing since the Lewand family took over in 1981. They were what one of the biggest proponents to why the Lewands decided to call it the Camellia Inn. More than 80 plants bloom throughout the winter on the inn’s landscaped grounds. We highly recommend that you take a self-guided tour of our property. Here you’ll be able to experience our history through beauty. You can begin this tour at the Fish Pond patio, which faces the tree-lined North Street. The Evergreen Dogwood is on your left which has the distinguishable yellow/green flowers in summer, which develop pink overtones as they mature. With its strawberry-like pods, the tree was planted to screen the side of the house. It is a very rare variety. Lucy Lewand’s sister Chris grew it from seed.

You’ll then notice an old Tulip Tree that has bloomed beautifully bringing calm joy to everyone that experiences it. You can cross over the brick patio to the right, where there are the oldest Camellias at the Camellia Inn that were planted by the doctor and his wife. The Lewands have added more than 40 additional varieties of camellias since starting the Inn. The Japanese Maple was added in 1988 as shade for the camellias. This is just a short portrait of the beautiful nature that you can find solace in when you visit us at the Camellia Inn.
