Special for dogs in Healdsburg

  • At Lambert Bridge Winery it is proudly noted that the winery is “100% dog friendly!” While dog-owners peruse the winery’s Bordeaux-style wine offerings at the redwood bar, dogs can settle into a dog bed and relax with a bowl of water. After a tasting, grab a bottle and some glasses and wander with your leashed pup through the estate gardens, where poop bags are plentiful and picnic areas dot the landscape. The same is true for Sbragia Family Winery. Dogs are welcome in the tasting room, on the patio and even in the vineyards. On the patio terrace, which overlooks the family’s estate vineyards and the surrounding hills of Dry Creek Valley, staff provides humans with sauvignon blanc and zinfandel, and dogs with water bowls and treats. At Portalupi Wine’s downtown tasting room your dog can people watches through the large, open picture window from big purple lounge chairs. At Dutcher Crossing Winery, dogs are welcome in the tasting room, where they can try on winery-branded dog collars for purchase while their owners taste estate zinfandel and other small-production wines. The back patio and lawn offer a grassy, sunny spot to nibble on cheese and charcuterie, and play catch, while overlooking Dry Creek Valley. Flanagan Winery

Along Healdsburg, and Greater Sonoma County, Brewery Trails

In 2017, nearby Santa Rosa was named the Microbrew Capital of the U.S. Before the farms of Healdsburg were covered in vineyards, they were known for their hops. From the 1850s to the 1950s, hops were one of the areas top cash crops. It was hops, not wine, that first established Sonoma County as an agricultural powerhouse. Back in the day hops were dried in huge hop kilns and then baled and shipped all over but especially to the East Coast. The first hops were planted here in 1858 with rootstock from Germany. Migrant families came by wagon every year to pick the hops. While it was work, it was also for many a mini-vacation as they enjoyed camping, swimming and relaxing along the Russian River after a day in the hop fields.

Traditionally, and currently, the one thing that has remained the same in Sonoma County Wine Country – it takes a lot of beer to make great wine. It’s beer that is the beverage of choice at harvest time no matter what the crop. So, it was really foreordained that Sonoma County would become a beer powerhouse location. Although wine is why many people come to Healdsburg and Sonoma County, local beer is becoming a more-and-more popular reason for people visit. Every February, beer aficionados from all over the world make an annual pilgrimage here, to stand in line, sometimes for as long as 17-hours and occasionally in the pouring rain, to be first to buy a glass of the Russian River Brewery’s Pliny the Younger. A beer that is consistently voted among the top six in the world on beer ranking websites.

Sonoma County is now one of the world’s beer capitals. The artisan beer industry started here in 1976 with New Albion Brewing Co., regarded by many as the first craft brewery of the present era. The county is home to legendary brewers including Moonlight Brewing Co. One of the nation’s largest craft brewers is Lagunitas Brewing Co. in Petaluma and a regional powerhouse is the Bear Republic Brewing Co. in Healdsburg.

There are more than 30 breweries in the region. Below are the breweries, beer gardens taprooms, beer dedicated retail stores and notable others on Camellia Inn’s Beer & Brewery Tour.

Are you ready for a delicious Healdsburg Breakfast?

I think we all can agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. One of our staff members daughter, Abigail, is 10 years old and she told us the other day that our “Healdsburg Breafkist (yes, she says breafkist instead of Breakfast. They don’t have the heart to correct it) is so delicious.” That’s a 5 star rating in our books. We have to say that we agree with her on this! Our Healdsburg breakfast offers you Breakfast ingredients that are locally-sourced, organic and sustainable, in-season and “right off the farm” fresh. If you’ve never had an egg that wasn’t shipped to a grocery store from far away, eating breakfast at the Camellia Inn will be a revelation. Our eggs come from local hens that are well treated, and they’re delivered fresh daily. There is so much more that we offer during breakfast time, so we’d love for you to check out our website to find out for yourself.

We are confident in what we can offer you for breakfast, but on the chance that you want to get out and explore other Healdsburg breakfast spots, then we want to help you out. Below is a list of some really delicious Healdsburg breakfast spots for you to enjoy during your stay with us at our Camellia Inn.

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.

Planning your next Vacation Stay at our Healdsburg Ca Lodging is an Epic Idea

“The thing I love most about going on vacation is that I get to leave behind any kind of schedule. My entire life is scheduled from morning to night, and when I’m on vacation, there is no schedule.” – Kelly Clarkson

I think we all can agree with the Grammy award winning singer, that going on vacation should be loose and fun. It should be about getting away from your everyday lives and finding some peace or tranquility in the places you or your family decide to vacation. If you’ve decided on a trip to Healdsburg in Northern California, the next step is to book the place you want to stay. There is an abundance of Healdsburg Ca lodging choices for you and your family. For several reasons, the Camellia Inn Bed and Breakfast is the ideal Healdsburg Ca lodging selection for your next vacation.

That’s why booking one of our Spa treatments or Packages is a no brainer! Our Healdsburg ca lodging offers a spa experience that is special, loose, fun and unique to you as an individual.

Our downtown Healdsburg b&b has everything, everyone in your family would want during your summer trip. From our beautiful swimming pool, to our magnificent spa treatments, to our delicious locally sourced breakfast and to our IPAD offering for the kids. But more importantly, our location in downtown Healdsburg is ideal. We are a short walking distance from the Healdsburg Plaza, or a short car ride to many of top of the line wineries Sonoma County has to offer. But we are more ideal because of the many things your and your family can take part in this summer. Here is a list of the upcoming events that are available to you this June and July, that might entice you if you are still looking for a reason to plan your family trip to downtown Healdsburg.

It’s ‘May’ to Remember when you stay at the Camellia Inn Healdsburg B&B

“We cannot stop the winter or the summer from coming. We cannot stop the spring or the fall or make them other than they are. They are gifts from the universe that we cannot refuse. But we can choose what we will contribute to life when each arrives.” – Gary Zukav

Camellia Inn Healdsburg B&B

This quote can’t be any more accurate. No matter the season or time, when it comes to planning a vacation or getaway, the contribution you put into it should be met with the same contribution from the destination you choose.

Is a Healdsburg Ca Lodging the Right Fit?

Healdsburg Ca Lodging

Here are a few questions we think are important for you to consider before you decide to stay at our Camellia Inn B&B or any other Healdsburg Ca lodging b&b:

  1. Do you prefer smaller, more intimate Healdsburg Ca lodging accommodations than a large hotel?
  2. Do you appreciate rooms that are individually decorated, especially with antiques or period furniture?
  3. Do you enjoy getting to know other travelers over a lavish communal breakfast?
  4. Do you like staying in residential neighborhoods or quiet rural settings?
  5. Do you enjoy the experience of a “home away from home” — including personal touches like the innkeepers’ cat curled up in the corner of the living room?
  6. Do you like having the personal attention and expertise of an innkeeper at your disposal?
  7. Do you appreciate transparent pricing (many B&B’s list nightly rates on their Web sites)?
