The Grape Leaf Inn is a lovely bed and breakfast nestled on a side street of Healdsberg. You can barely find it as it blends so well with the neighborhood. You are greeted by Christin when you arrive and she gives you the house tour. Anything you need, is at your fingertips. The room we stayed in was in the original part of the inn and was full of character and history. The only negative is it could have used a few updates such as the torn shade in the bathroom and a tv that was so small you could barely see the screen from the bed. In the morning, you are greeted with the most gourmet breakfast ever. A breakfast that will stay in your memory for a long,long,time. Definitely not the usual bacon and eggs!
The inn keepers were very knowledgeable and Richard helped us make a reservation at a winery we never heard of before. Don't forget to visit the Speakeasy. It is really a highlight of the inn with a hidden room behind the bookcases used during prohibition times. Wine tastings are given here on the weekend.
Speaking of wine, Richard has his own vineyard where he produces the most fabulous Zinfindel. You will find a bottle waiting for you in the room. We feel in love with that Zinfindel and we were never even Zinfindel drinkers before! Last, don't forget to try Kaye's cookies. She makes them late in the afternoon and they disappear fast! So incredibly good! We look forward to visiting next year.
