“Camellias go well with wine & weddings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Just returned back East after a glorious wedding in the picture-book town of Healdsburg, CA and a stay in a truly charming B&B called the Camellia Inn. The Inn is aptly named as it sits in the midst of a garden of camellias and the flowers were blooming in a luscious palette of pinks, reds, whites and even orange. The setting could not have been more perfect! Same can be said for the location - an easy two block walk to Healdsburg's main shopping/walking and sipping area (yes, there are tasting rooms for local wineries all over town.) We were there for a wedding & most of the festivities were within walking distance as well. The exception was the rehearsal dinner which was held in the Arista Winery where an outdoor dining area provided spectacular vistas of the surrounding hills and valleys. The groom's family provided buses so all could enjoy the great wines.
Camellia Inn's host and hostess, Archie and Lucy, greeted us warmly on our arrival & quickly acquainted us with the Inn, its locale & what was happening in the area that weekend. We had two rooms as our daughter was traveling with us. Each was unique but both had high, cozy beds- and I I do mean cozy beds as in "I could sleep until noon comfortable"- gas- fireplaces, large Jacuzzi tubs and a good supply of choice amenities and towels. A bouquet of live camellias was in each room and we looked into a sea of camellias from our windows.
Then there were the breakfasts: Lucy referred to them as "holiday breakfasts." The reason for that appellation was abundantly obvious - the food was delicious, and spared no calories if one chose to partake of all the offerings - fresh fruits, cereals, a different smoothie each day, stuffed French toast, bacon, creamy scrambled eggs, sausage, breads, pastries, coffee and juices.
The Inn also offers wine & cheese in the evenings. Alas, we had wedding events so we missed those but I have no doubt that they were similarly tasty.
No doubt about it: this is a great place to stay and well-priced as well.

Room Tip: Get a king-sized bed for a wonderful night of sleep!

I stayed one night on Thursday night (3/7/2013). Everything was fabulous. The room was fantastic. Very clean and comfortable. Lucy's recommendation for dinner and the play worked out very well. The bed was great. I really enjoyed the wine and cheese platter. The breakfast the following morning was outstanding as well. All in all, a very memorable evening that I am telling all of my friends about.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Camellia Inn. Breakfasts were wonderful - plentiful options, and tasty choices with quality bread from the local bakery. The lovely sitting room was pleasant with warm sunbeams. We enjoyed reading both the local paper and the New York Times both mornings. We stayed in the budget room and although it was smaller than the other rooms and had a double bed rather than a king or queen, it was just the right size for us!

The location was ideal and we barely drove all weekend. It was so nice to be able to walk into town rather than drive. Lucy was away while we were there, but Archie was good company and we appreciated visiting with him and the rest of the staff and guests. Highly recommended and we hope to stay there again someday!

My boyfriend and I had a GREAT experience staying with Lucy at Camellia Inn. Firstly, the location in Healdsburg is perfect - it is completely walkable to nearly every tasting room in the city. She also provided us with a voucher for discounted or free tastings for a number of area wineries - we were only able to hit up about 4 of them, but the voucher was for at least 50 different places! There were cookies upon afternoon arrival, a wine and appetizer happy hour at 5:30, she was able to book us reservations for dinner at a local Tapas restaurant and a delicious and extensive breakfast awaited us the next morning. Beds were comfy, bathrooms were clean - I honestly can't say anything but positive things about Camiellia Inn. We had a great time!

The wonderful proximity location of this idyllic Inn, within a close walking distance of Downtown Healdsburg. Made an ideal pit stop for any travelers who want a tranquil rest in a charming historical property. The hospitable hostess-Lucy made our stay! Lucy welcomed us like her own family members and the comfy bed and generous room, were the hi lights of our Dry Creek visit. Oh, we loved Lucy's nightly wine and chocolate treats...A wonderful stay, definitely would come back!
Thank you!

So many B & Bs today are no better than a hotel with breakfast. Lucy and Archie make you feel like you're in a wonderful home. A Victorian mansion but a wonderful home nonetheless. Lol

Made my week in Healdsburg seem too short. I'll definitely be back.

we absolutely loved our stay at camellia inn. staff was immediately friendly and helpful. they immediately upgraded us from one of the budget rooms to a beautiful suite.

the breakfasts were all outstanding! we LOVE breakfast, and the camellia inn did not let us down! i appreciated that there was always healthy fruit in addition to really delicious savory dishes. it was a great start to each day :)

the location is very convenient, just a few blocks from the center of healdsburg.

in the evenings we enjoyed the generous complimentary wine and snacks, which made it easy and fun to get to know the other guests.

i would stay at the camellia inn again in a heartbeat and give it my highest recommendation to friends.
