“I don't think it gets better than this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Recently we stayed six nights at Honor Mansion and were sad to leave. It's comfortable, well appointed, elegant, gracious, and quiet. If those aspects are not to your liking--perhaps you are looking for the perfect spot to celebrate spring break with your fraternity brothers--it's probably wise to find another place.

Steve and Cathi have paid remarkable attention to detail. Small touches of hospitality are everywhere. In the cocktail hour of five to six, the Mansion puts some of Sonoma's finest wines out for tasting and socializing. The grounds are meticulously gardened and maintained. The pool is inviting, and the croquet course and golf green are cut to, well, golf green standards. Bocce ball and tennis are further to the back, and a half-court basketball court is there too.

One could hang around on the property and be satisfied, but we hit numerous wineries and restaurants too. Steve and his staff have encyclopedic knowledge of the many restaurants and wineries in the area (Healdsburg sits at the intersection of the Dry Creek, Alexander Valley, Russian River valley, and Chalk Hill wine areas). They carefully planned an itinerary of tastings from a list we sent of wineries we thought we might like to visit. They set up a limo service to drive a party of four around to various wineries (and the driver knew some that were off the radar too).

All in all, staying at Honor Mansion is worth every penny.

Needed a get-away so again headed to the FABULOUS Honor Mansion in delightful Healdsburg. Sonoma County is so diverse in its many attractions & much more serene than the over-visited thus crowded Napa Valley. This GEM has Gorgeous large grounds with many things to do, lovely & comfortable immaculate rooms. These last couple of times we've enjoyed The Vineyard Suite 1 yet all the rooms are beautiful. This is a bit of heaven with Steve & Cathi as wonderful innkeepers. Such a treat! Lots of special touches! All that came out of the kitchen was delicious. Tempted to just enjoy & take in luxuries yet the nearby sweet town of Healdsburg is worth exploring by offering super shops & highly rated restaurants & of course, the world class wineries close by. Loved it, you will too! Yes, I know I'm gushing but this boutique resort is truly worth it!!!

Everything was perfect. The room was great, both comfortable and clean. The staff was incredible, very helpful and courteous. They went out of their way to help people find and get into the special boutique wineries. It is away from Healdsburg Square, across the street from Seghesio Vineyards, but that makes it quiet. We made the walk to the square, it is only about 15 minutes. Breakfast was good.

From the moment we made the reservation, the staff of Honor Mansion was assisting our vacation planning. Honor Mansion set up a day of guided tours and tasting at wineries not available to the public. We discussed winemaking with the experts and dined in the vineyard by Dry Creek. The staff also made dining recommendations and reservations. The recommendations were spot on. The service at Honor Mansion during our stay was great. Our needs were not just met but anticipated. A great experience in a beautiful setting.

Room Tip: The suites are the most pleasing accommodations with private entry to the pool and recreation areas.

Every person there bent over backwards to please our every whim. It was like living in the home of extremely hospitable friends. We met some nice people who were also guests there.
The place has every base covered.

We had a fantastic time at Honor Mansion, and only wish we thought to stay longer! It is the perfect location for an indulgent romantic getaway, and by far the best accommodations throughout our travels in the area. My husband and I were amazed at the hospitality, and friendliness of the staff at Honor Mansion. Upon entering our lovely room (Squires Cottage) we were greeted with a personal note, bottle of wine and decadent cake to celebrate our honeymoon. The amenities are absolutely wonderful, the breakfast was exceptional, and after touring wineries throughout the day the afternoon appetizers and wine are an excellent addition to the stay. We we will definitely visit again!

If there was anything I would do differently about our stay at the Honor Mansion would be that I would stay longer! We have stayed at many B & B's around the country, but Honor Mansion is by far the most outstanding. The room was nicely furnished and the bed so comfortable we inquired about the mattress brand as we want to get one for home. There was quite a selection of CD's and DVD's from which to choose to play on the CD/DVD player in the room.

While we knew there was a lovely pool at Honor Mansion, what we didn't realize until we arrived was how extensive the grounds are. There is a putting green, croquet court, bocci courts, a basketball court and a tennis court. Lots to do!

The breakfast was delicious, but the thing that put it over the top was that they prepared gluten- free scones and the most delicious gluten-free chocolate zucchini bread for my husband who must maintain a gluten-free diet. That degree of hospitality was greatly appreciated!

The Honor Mansion is definitely the place we will stay the next time we are in Sonoma, except we will ensure we stay longer.

We can't thank you enough for your amazing review! We are so glad you enjoyed our gluten-free cooking, because we understand how hard it is to have a dietary restriction and feel safe while traveling.

We are happy that you enjoyed the resort grounds upon seeing the property for the first time! Thank you for your compliments about how comfortable you found your room!

We look forward to hosting you folks again next time you are in the area.
