Simply the Best Healdsburg Bed and Breakfasts

“Big stuff and little: learning how to order breakfast in a country where I don’t speak the language and haven’t been before – that’s really satisfying to me. I like that.” – Anthony Bourdain

We came across this quote by the late great Chef and thought it was a perfect way to start this blog post.

For us at our Healdsburg Bed and Breakfast, serving you a locally sourced unique to Healdsburg breakfast is a way for you to be a part of us. When you travel, that’s what it’s all about right?

Benefits of Aromatherapy Massage

Caucasian Female laying on chest and receiving a back message from a specialistWhen combined with massage therapy designed to benefit the circulatory, lymphatic, nervous, and musculoskeletal systems, aromatherapy offers an additional level of relaxation and healing. The combination provides positive effects on your mind and body that linger long after the massage is complete.

When used according to professional recommendation, the essential oils used during an aromatherapy massage offer a host of benefits:

  • Improved healing of the mind and body through manipulation of your soft tissues.
  • Heightened relaxation achieved through inhalation of oil scents that calm emotions.
  • Mood enhancement, particularly with citrus scents.
  • Positive emotional health through scent-triggered positive memories and feelings.
  • Reduced inflammation through increased circulation brought about by invigorating and cooling essential oils such as peppermint.

There’s an Essential Oil for That

Some of the most popular aromatherapy massage essential oils are bergamot, cedarwood, chamomile, eucalyptus, geranium, ginger, grapefruit, lemon, orange, patchouli, peppermint, sweet marjoram, and tea tree oil. Three favorites of our guests include:

  • Lavender. Along with peppermint and eucalyptus, lavender essential oil helps relieve muscle tension and headaches. It soothes the skin and is said to slow the progression of wrinkles. Prized for its relaxing qualities, it’s also often used in bed linen sprays and pulse point applications.
  • Sage. The three types of sage oil, Spanish, common, and clary, offer unique relaxation benefits for anxiety and other mood disorders. Great for your skin, the sage oil scent also has a stimulating effect and is used to cleanse negativity from the air.
  • Mandarin. Sweet, clean, and vibrant all at once, this beautiful scent has an overall calming effect and is often used to address digestive problems. The oil can also be used on the skin and is used to treat acne.

The pampering solution you need could be right at the end of your nose! Talk to us about adding an aromatherapy massage treatment to your stay at the Inn. It’s the perfect way to make your Healdsburg stay a more memorable and relaxing one.

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?”

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.

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!

 

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.

A Special for Golfers

Babymoon Special

Camellia Inn-Dulge

Chocolate Covered Wednesdays

Getting over the breakup

Quick Break Away

Wine Country Date

Work Out Wellness

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. I think that’s why it’s important to make friends with people like Aaron and you all, so you feel that confidence in us. We want you to feel like you are always one of our own and always welcome. So, for those of you wanting more information, please reach out. We are all here to help at any time. Cheers!

 

 

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

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 flow can return to the heart. A Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Our Master’s Massage

The next Therapeutic massage treatment we offer you at the Camellia inn is the Master’s Massage. This is another fantastic treatment we offer at our Spa in Healdsburg. With this treatment, you’ll consult with one of our senior therapists who is trained in many modalities. This type of therapeutic Massage is perfect for anyone wanting to reconnect with their mind, body and soul through a one on one treatment. Our therapists will put together a treatment that revolves around who you are, what you’re capable of, and what you want to get out of it. This Therapeutic Massage is the ultimate stress relief and relaxation.

Let’s get you in here!

The summer is now upon us and there will be many reasons to get away. Coming to the Camellia Inn in Healdsburg to receive a Therapeutic Massage is a great way to get your mind, body and soul ready for these summer travels. We can’t stress enough how important it is for all of us to be in balance with life and our own mind and soul. That’s why we have put together such spa treatments and packages for you to be a part of. For more information having to do with our specials and packages, click this link. https://camelliainn.com/specials-packages.

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.

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.
