We booked this property because of the location and nice half way stop to our destination. What a beautiful property right on the river and close to the plaza for dinner. We felt very safe and able to social distance using the patio and porch for our dining. The made to order breakfast is a nice touch and the happy hour was a pleasant surprise. We will be back!
I travel abroad twice/year and was desperate for a change of scenery that was easy to get to from Seattle. I chose the River Belle Inn for 8 nights based on the reviews and it lived up to expectations. Healdsburg is an easy 15 minutes from the Santa Rosa airport. My room was the Blue Heron Suite. I think of a suite as a having a separate sitting and sleeping area, but no matter because my private ground-floor patio was my living room. Mitzy and Tom love their work and are incredibly nice hosts. I love dogs and made fast friends with Mia, their golden Labrador. She greeted me several times a day and was great company!
What a wonderful experience we had at the River Belle Inn. Everything couldn't have been more perfect! Tom and Mitzi and all of the staff were absolutely the perfect hosts for our stay. Everything from the happy hours, to the breakfasts, to the rooms, to the outside area was excellent. Tom was extremely helpful in helping us plan our travels trough the area. His recommendations for the different wineries were spot on for us. The fellow guests were extremely helpful with their suggestions for dinners. All in all my wife and I felt that the River Belle was possibly the best inn that we have ever visited
We decided to visit wine country at the last minute. I really love staying in great hotels so I spent a bit of time online researching them, reading reviews, looking at poctures. When I saw the picture of The River Belle Inn, right away I was interested. It is so pretty. It is located right on the Russian River. The serene views are just lovely from the room or the adirondack chairs around the property or the hammock. The bad part is there is little incentive to leave and do anything. If however you want to do something, the cute town pf Healdsburg is a 10 minute walk. Lots of good restaurants, boutique stores and tasting rooms. They are all very strict about distancing and sanitizing (as is the Inn). The owner, Tom, referred us to some great wineries that we had never visited and they were all just gorgeous. The breakfast at the Inn is delicious with an amazing array of choices. The chocolate croissant is worth the splurge and the fresh o.j. Is amazing. You can pick any time to have breakfast and we would have our coffee delivered to our roomat 7, go for a walk and come back for breakfast around 9:30. Perfect! There is a nice happy hour (ended up being two hours) on the riverfront patio where the owners Tom and Mitzi spent a bit of time with us. The hotel inside is decorated beautifully and the beds are extremely comfortable. We will definitely put this at the top of our list! Oh, whoops, can’t forget to mention the beautiful and patient (always waiting for a little morsel of food to come her way) lab, Mia. She is the official greeter and does a great job!…
What an amazing experience my fiance and I had at the River Belle Inn! We cannot say enough good things about this place. I have never stayed in a BnB before, and boy, did this place blow away my expectations. Beautiful rooms, lovely owners with a great dog named Mia, great view and friendly atmosphere. Will absolutely be looking forward to our next weekend get away to this place!
