My wife & I just spent four nights at the Calderwood Inn in Healdsburg, CA and we truly enjoyed the old mansion that has been converted into 7 or 8 bedrooms. Mary & her staff do everything in her power to get you whatever you want, either an evening glass of wine or a great breakfast. Her maps & directions... More

We rented the entire Inn for our wedding weekend. It's hard to describe in words the great hospitality we received from Mary and the innkeepers. Our entire family is very thankful and felt like we were at home. The breakfasts were delicious and hearty. The fresh chocolate chip cookies and wine hour was another great way for the family to...

The Calderwood Inn is a wonderful place to stay while visiting the beautiful wine country! The hotel is a lovely Victorian Style house that has a beautiful front porch to sit and chat while drinking wine and eating cheese. There is a large living room you can also sit in that is great for relaxing in after a long day... More

My husband and I stayed in the Wilson room for 2 nights in mid-April, and loved our entire experience. The inn is lovely with so many cozy comfortable places to sit and read or just sip wine and relax. Breakfast was very good both mornings, and I liked that the fact that, though breakfast wasn't until 9, coffee was made... More

I read a number of reviews for the Calderwood Inn before making our reservations, and was surprised to see many from people who do not often stay in Bed and Breakfasts. We are at the other end of that spectrum -- almost always choose B&Bs over other accommodations, and have definite expectations of what a B&B should be. The Calderwood... More

I did not like having my bathroom outside of my room (even if it was only for my use). Also I would have liked a fresh towel each day. The bathroom was very tiny and two people could not be in there at the same time. The faucets in the bathroom sink were separate, hot and cold so you could... More

We found the Calderwood Inn through a web booking site when looking for options in Healdsburg for the Thanksgiving weekend. The price was good, so we booked the three nights for the holiday. A few days after booking the innkeeper, Kendra, contacted us to ask if we could check in early, between 11A and 1P, so they could give their... More

We chose the Calderwood Inn based upon its ratings on tripadvisor. I am so glad we did. It was our first time in Sonoma and the inn was the perfect place for us to call home for a few days. The inn was beautifully maintained and was charming and welcoming. Both Mary and Kendra were fabulous. All of their recommendations,... More

We arrived in Healdsburg at 4pm, jet lagged and without a place to stay for the night. The Camellia Inn was fully booked but they kindly recommended the Calderwood Inn and phoned to check availability. We got the last room! From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home by Kendra, the young Innkeeper. She made recommendations... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Known on the California and Sonoma County Landmarks Registry as the John Miller House, this historic Queen Anne Victorian was built in 1902. Miller was a prominent fruit grower, packer and dehydrator in the early 1900s. He was also one of the first to make a commercial business of marketing dehydrated fruit. Among Miller's claims to fame is that he was the first provider to the U.S. Military of dehydrated foods. Known as K-rations during WW I and MREs today, Miller was cited by the military for "feeding the troops during WW I". (1) Miller and his wife were, like many prominent citizens of the community, anxious to furnish their home lavishly. The home is reputed to be the first in Healdsburg with two bathrooms, with indoor plumbing upstairs and downstairs.The noted horticulturist, Luther Burbank, was a good friend and assisted in the design and development of the original landscape at the front of the home, some of which remains today. The large cedar, cypress, and redwood heritage trees were planted by Burbank over 100 years ago. The lush grounds have been accented with rose bushes and numerous flowering shrubs. The same archaeological report from Sonoma State University indicates that some of the first plantings of some of Burbank's new species were planted on the Miller property. Sadly, the location and botanical name of the plants were never recorded. It is unknown if they remain on the property today.The home remained in the Miller family until the late 1930s and was a private residence until the early 1980s when it became a Bed and Breakfast. The inn has undergone extensive restoration over the years. Beautiful hand-silk screened period wall and ceiling papers accent the spacious common areas and some guest rooms. The papers are produced by Bradbury & Bradbury of Benicia, CA and are based on designs of William Morris, a prominent textile designer of the mid- to late 1800s.The formal, yet welcoming rooms include a spacious parlor with fireplace—the perfect place to enjoy the morning paper or a board game on a quiet afternoon. The spacious dining room that seats up to 14 showcases original wainscoting and built-in china cabinet and bench. The large antique table is where guests dine on Calderwood's signature gourmet breakfasts. The covered front porch with its antique wicker furniture and lacquered floor beckons you to enjoy the lush grounds, review the activities of your day or curl up with a good book. The porch is often used by local wineries who frequently co-host our complimentary evening wine hour. All seven guest rooms have private baths. Each room is decorated differently to incorporate an extensive collection of beautiful, yet comfortable period ... more   less
