Healdsburg Events Valentine

” What I find most disturbing about Valentine’s Day is, look, I get that you have to have a holiday of love, but in the height of flu season, it makes no sense. “– Lewis Black

This quote by Lewis Black brings light to the Valentine’s Holiday, because at the end of the day, it’s a day that should be filled with laughter, fun and of course, Love! The definition of love means so much right? You can love to head out and explore, you can love to stay home and watch a movie, you can show love to a stranger with a random act of kindness or eat a lovely meal at a place you love. All these choices bring us back to the idea that, Valentine’s Day is not just for those couples, it’s for all of us! For us at the Camellia Inn though, it’s a great time because there are so many Healdsburg events that anyone can be a part of. Below are some highlights for this upcoming weekend. We hope you’ll find your way to one of these Healdsburg events.

Friday Evening Wine & Song – A Complimentary Music Series

Male and Female on bicycles with red heart painted in front The first Healdsburg event to discuss is over at Hudson Street Wineries on 428 Hudson Street. They will feature “John Vicino” a singer songwriter who returns to the Barrel Room with his unique style of acoustic & beyond. He started his career at age 16 in & around the streets of San Francisco. There will be a food vendor on site and Valentine’s Day wine specials! This is going to be quite the fun little intimate Healdsburg event anyone can enjoy. Head over to their website to find out more. https://hudsonstreetwineries.com/upcoming-events/

Pliny The Younger at Russian River Brewing Company

Alright, so this isn’t a Healdsburg event, but this is an event, nonetheless. Pliny the younger is a once a year Double IPA beer release from Russian River Brewing company. One could call this a Healdsburg event if they choose to, because it brings people from all over the world into Sonoma County to taste this one of a kind beer. People will wait in line for 6-9 hours, depending on the time of day you choose to go. Russian River Brewing company has two locations. The original location is in downtown Santa Rosa and their newest location is in Windsor which is only 7 miles from our Camellia Inn. The cool thing about this beer release is, if you get in at a good time, you can only stay for 3 hours. So, eat, drink, buy some merchandise and then head back out. Head up to see us and keep the party going, there is probably a Healdsburg event going on that you’ll enjoy. 

Barley and Bine Beer Café

This is a short little plug for a great small business that is thriving especially during the time of the Russian River Pliny the Younger release, because they are a 5 minute walk from them. This is a place that we suggest you check out anytime, not just for the purpose of this Valentine’s Day weekend, but any weekend you want to experience a non-Healdsburg event. Barley and Bine will have an event called on Valentine’s Night called, “Pucker Up! A Night of Sours & Flowers.” This is a Sour beer tap takeover and they will be selling some beautiful bouquets of flowers and serving some delicious food specials. We suggest you check them out on Friday night, if you can.

Valentine’s Day Dinner at Seghesio Family Vineyards

Alright the final Healdsburg event to discuss is all about dinner and it’s happening at Seghesio Family Vineyards. There, you’ll indulge on the day meant to celebrate LOVE. This Healdsburg event will begin the evening with a wine and charcuterie reception in their tasting room before descending into the Cellar to enjoy a decadent, multi-course dinner created by Executive Chef Peter Janiak. Hosted on February 14th AND February 15th, limited to 40 guests per night. We highly suggest you head over to their website to get a ticket. This Healdsburg event will book up fast! https://www.seghesio.com/Events-Food/Winery-Events#

Heart Day, The Camellia Inn and all the Healdsburg events…

I think we all can agree that the Camellia Inn is in the heart of all the Healdsburg events happening this Valentine’s day weekend. Beer, wine, dinner, chocolate oh my…hikes, dancing, running, shopping oh my…sleeping, swimming, waking, riding oh my! There are so many things to do here in Healdsburg, I could go on forever, but that would be like reading a novel. We’ll just end with this, on Thursdays over at Barley and Bine Beer Café, they have a picture with the two bartenders, standing back to back and it’s titled, “Thursday Night, You Won’t?” We think it’s clever, so we are going to borrow it just for today, “Valentine’s Day in Healdsburg, you Won’t?” 

Take a Little Time for Yourself with a Therapeutic Massage

With its quaint downtown and gorgeous countryside, Healdsburg is one of the most picturesque spots in all of California. It’s a perfect get-away destination with tons to do. Along with fine restaurants and unique shops, there’s wine and beer tasting, cycling, bocce games, hiking, canoeing, golfing, and more.

All that activity can be loads of fun, but sometimes you just want a good old-fashioned pampering experience!

In-Room Therapeutic Massage

Massage therapist holding woman's neckWhether you’re all shopped out or have spent the day sampling Healdsburg’s outdoor recreational options, an exclusive in-room therapeutic massage offers the rest, rejuvenation, and relaxation you’re craving.

Therapeutic treatments from highly trained, licensed massage therapists are a wonderful complement to enhance your stay at the inn. In addition to back, neck, and full-body massages, you can add on additional treatments like:

  • Reflexology foot and head massages that stimulate pressure points to reduce stress and tension throughout your body.
  • CBD oil infused treatments to calm inflammation, reduce chronic pain, and melt away tension.
  • Scalp massages to relax your mind and relieve tight muscles in the neck and temple regions.

All of these soothing and relaxing massage techniques are designed to promote a wonderful feeling of well-being.

Need a treatment that’s a little more intense? Sports massages are perfect for alleviating tightness and muscle contractions while enhancing flexibility and increasing circulation. For major workout enthusiasts, a deep tissue massage tends to those inner layers of muscles and connective tissues, increases blood flow, and reduces inflammation.

Massage Done Your Way

You deserve to take some time for yourself! Therapeutic massage is a deeply restorative body treatment that also has the power to calm your mind and soothe your soul. It’s the perfect way to make your stay in Healdsburg a more memorable one.

How to Find the Best Spa in Healdsburg

When you search for a spa Healdsburg or otherwise, there are several things you need to look for. You need to find one that uses local workers, one that focuses on the customer experience, and one that is within easy reach of the community as a whole without having a long commute. In some cases, you can find several great qualities such as these within the same spa Healdsburg.

Only Locals

Smiling woman in spa holding flower Local people are the best people for a relaxing experience. While it may sound almost too easy to settle in and relax when you are on a vacation, this becomes more difficult when there is an inherent stress level within the people at your spa Healdsburg. The more relaxed they are in what they are doing, the better off you are going to be. This relaxation starts with being highly familiar with the area, and with having a reasonable commute into work. While their stress levels may be masked by professionalism, the easiest way to have a great and relaxing experience is to be tended to by people who are themselves in a relaxed state of mind.

The Amazing Experience

There are plenty of occasions in life where a great experience seems to simply happen without any sort of planning. Unfortunately, this type of occasion is a serious rarity. For most kinds of businesses, it can be a significant feat just to provide their product or service in a timely and effective manner. To focus on the actual experience that someone has when they walk in the door is something that all too many business owners seem to consider too much to think about. But when you get into a spa in Healdsburg that focuses on providing you with a great experience that soothes all of your senses, that long day of hiking, biking and checking out the breweries will not seem so strenuous.

Simple to Get To

Getting to your favorite spa should not be a stressful activity in and of itself. The idea is to find a place that you can easily get to with a short drive, and ideally get to on foot. In a city of 11,000 people, nothing should be a lengthy commute away, particularly if it is designed to provide a relaxing experience to the city’s visitors. When you find a spa that is relaxing just getting there, this is the right spa.

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. Everything on the Brass Rabbit’s Healdsburg Breakfast menu is reasonably priced and presented beautifully. If you have a free weekend coming up, we suggest you come stay with us at the Camellia Inn and walk over to The Brass Rabbit for an inviting and filling Healdsburg Breakfast experience. If you’d like to know more about the Brass Rabbit, click the following link. https://thebrassrabbithealdsburg.com/

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/

You, us and the Healdsburg Breakfast Scene

We don’t always use the new forms of expression well, but I think we all can agree that the Healdsburg Breakfast scene is Fire!!! This is a nice list of breakfast restaurants for you to investigate when you visit Healdsburg, or you stay with us at the Camellia Inn. If you love breakfast, we promise these are some perfect places to satisfy that love. Contact us at any time for any information about these spots. We are happy to point you in the right direction. Cheers!

 

Independence Day Events in Healdsburg

“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4th, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.” – Erma Bombeck

Experience It All Right Here At The Camellia Inn

“All vacations can come down to a few little moments – what do your remember when you’re alone, totally relaxed and taken out of yourself to appreciate this other world.” – Bill Kurtis

Right now, I’m sitting at the bar inside of Barley and Bine Beer café in Windsor, which is a short drive to the Camellia Inn. I just finished a great conversation with a customer named Aaron that’s from North Carolina. He told me he’s in town from North Carolina and visiting this area for the first time. I love when I meet people from out of the area and get to hear their stories. When Aaron asked me about where I’m from and what I did, he was intrigued when I brought up Healdsburg and the Camellia Inn. Aaron is here for the next few weeks and will be coming to the Camellia Inn for a tour of our bed and breakfast and a conversation about the many great things we offer. Here’s a list of the things I’ll be talking to Aaron about.

The Location

The Camellia Inn

When Aaron and I start the tour of the Camellia Inn and we begin talking I’ll start with our location. The Camellia Inn Bed and Breakfast is located just minutes from anything and everything. You can walk out of our front doors and begin your journey to delight in the many brilliant Healdsburg treats. If you like food, wine, spirits, art, music and so much more, then our Healdsburg Camellia Inn has you covered.

Room Accommodations

The next thing I’ll talk to Aaron about is the rooms at our Camellia Inn Bed and Breakfast. I think we can all agree that when you are planning those vacations and then choosing a room to stay in, it’s exciting. The anticipation of staying in a room that’s not your own is fun. We at the Camellia Inn totally get this joy little joy. The rooms at the Camellia Inn are set up to make you feel like you are away but being as comfortable as if you were still in your own bedroom. Each of the nine, thoughtfully appointed guest rooms at the Inn features a private bath and all include a shower. Some rooms have whirlpool tubs for two. We also provide you with a complimentary wireless service, so you can get your work done or your family can save their minutes and stay up to date on all their social media needs. Head over to the following link to read more about our beautiful rooms at the Camellia Inn. https://camelliainn.com/lodging/

Camellia Spa Treatments

Another topic of discussion that Aaron and I will have is about our Spa. I’ll let him know that the Camellia Inn has exceptional licensed massage therapists that are highly trained in many different modalities of treatments. Attentive and gracious, we’re proud to say they’re among the finest professionals in wine country. Our specials and packages will cater to just about anyone and will be unique to you alone or your partner. Below is a list of the Specials we offer at the Camellia Inn. Click on any of them to get the whole rundown.

Events all around!

There is so much to talk about with Aaron and there are plenty of events coming up that he or you should look into. The 4th of July is right around the corner so there will be plenty of red white and blue events and firework shows and overall celebrations to celebrate. Since Aaron will be here for the next few weeks, we’ll point him in the direction to Windsor, where on the 3rd of July, they have their firework show celebration. On the 4th, over in Santa Rosa, their Red White and Boom music festival will be happening. And obviously, our Camellia Inn is close to a plethora of 4th of July food, music and fireworks. All in all, there is so much going on that Aaron will enjoy.

It’s all in the details!

We think it’s important for any of our guests to know that we at the Camellia Inn take pride in making every aspect of your stay with us, exactly what you want to get out of it. It’s all in the details. From check in, to breakfast, to comfortability, to communication and so much more.

So, for those of you wanting more information, please reach out. We are all here to help at any time. Cheers!

 

 

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.

“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

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.

The Perfect Healdsburg Ca Spa Adventure

“I can see clearly now the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind

There are plenty of Healdsburg Events for you to experience, but this screening should be on your list during your trips to Healdsburg. This is a community screening partnership between the Alexander Valley Film Society and Healdsburg Center for the Arts as part of their “Artists on Climate Change” exhibit. During his four-decade career as a photographer and explorer, James Balog has focused his lens on the complex relationship between humans and nature. Human activity has now surpassed all other forces shaping our world. Balog’s work has challenged us to contemplate our place in, and responsibility to, the natural world. Balog investigates how altering the elements is in turn affecting everyday Americans right now. The Human Element features subjects who are often overlooked victims of climate change. Balog visits Tangier Island, a fishing community facing the imminent reality of sea level rise threatening their future. Yadira Sanchez and her three children in Denver, Colorado, all of whom suffer from asthma, and attend a special school for children struggling with air. Balog embeds with a Cal Fire strike team on the frontlines of the most expensive wildfire in California history. And he ventures deep into Kentucky coal country, meeting unemployed miners finding hope from a new source. Balog argues that humans are part of the whole system of nature and not apart from it. Knowing this, he finds great hope that the fifth element, the human element, can bring the whole system back into balance.
