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 nine guest rooms have private baths. Each room is decorated differently to incorporate an extensive collection of beautiful, yet comfortable period

This place is very well located in Healdsburg...a short walk to the center of town, restaurants, etc. The hotel itself is quite nice, if a bit old fashioned and dated. Our room (the cheapest) was perfectly OK, but a little small. Breakfast was very good, but served at 9:00am, which was a bit late for us...although when I had a 9:00am conference call, they made me breakfast early. The owner and staff were very nice. On the whole, very good and no complaints. I'd happily go back.

This Inn is incredible! We stayed in The Matrix room and the bed was very very comfortable! It was quite at night, walking distance to downtown Healdsburg and an inviting place to simply hang out on the front porch swing or the parlor. Our hostess,Jude, was very welcoming and the food was fabulous! I look forward to staying again!

Hi Linda! It was so nice to meet both of you during your visit! And thank you for the glowing review. We do feel that our Inn has a special charm, and it's so convenient to downtown Healdsburg. By all means, please come see us again sometime! Best wishes, Jude (and Rebecca) Innkeepers

Okay...there were some pluses - but the minuses unfortunately meant that we won't be back. We stayed in their Greenwood Ridge room for three nights this past week. (Dates stayed 1/17 through 1/20) It is a downstairs room with a private entrance. Has a king-size bed and shower/bath combination with dual sinks. A decent sized t.v. is mounted on the wall and there is more than sufficient closet and dresser space. No fridge in this room and no access to ice. The management provides a flashlight on the nightstand. There is also an iron in the room. Bed is soft. Pillows were large and soft. Sufficient coverings on the bed. We were the only people checking in that day. Therefore - no wine reception - no niceties that others have referred to in previous reviews. We were handed a bottle of wine and a pair of glasses - shown to our room - and told that breakfast was at 9am sharp. Told where to park - and the quiet times. Nothing else. No indicators that we could use the upstairs area - or porch. Very impersonal. Breakfast was group style - and they were kind enough to cater to my food allergies. However, be aware that if you are there on a busy weekend - the dining room table (actually 1 wooden table with a large plastic picnic table pushed against it - then covered with a tablecloth) is very crowded. If you sit on the far side - you are not able to get up for more hot tea/juice/water as there is no space to move. It is hit or miss as to whether they bring coffee around but if you want something else, you are out of luck. Breakfast included yogurt with citrus slices each morning, and then a different main course. One morning breakfast sandwiches, one morning pancakes, one morning scrambled eggs. The breakfast area is extremely noisy when full - and you definitely can hear people when you are in your room. Location is very convenient to Downtown Healdsburg. Parking is more than sufficient. Gardens are beautiful. Staff is pleasant but aloof. Problem #1 - the room is very noisy in the morning! It is located directly under the kitchen and the thud - thud - thud of the kitchen staff starts at about 7am - no sleeping late here. The noise continues until well after 10am. This is definitely not a place to come to if you are looking for relaxation. The wall-mounted heater/air unit is on its last legs - and extremely noisy. Problem #2 - BUGS!!!!! The room was infested with ants. They were crawling on the walls, the dresser, the table, the tub, the sink..... Complained in the morning to the staff - theoretically they sprayed - and we did not see any more that day. (They said they could not move our room as the Inn would be full that night.) Spraying worked for 24 hours. The following day, I got up, picked up a tote bag that I had set on the floor - and freaked out. There had to have been a hundred ants both inside and out. (No food in the bag - just eyeglasses, jacket etc.) Spiderwebs and spiders in the shower - apparently they do not eat enough of the ants. Several cautions if you think about booking here - This is in no way a good place to stay if you have difficulties with stairs. The steps to the breakfast area are very steep. To get into the shower required much maneuvering since the lip of the tub is at least 18 inches off the ground. Even to get into the room is two steps up and two steps down. Summary - I felt this place needed to be closed for fumigation and a deep cleaning. Not sure how it passes a health department inspection. For the price, we could have stayed elsewhere and been much more comfortable. (We were there on a discounted weekend - and we are wine club members - so get a further price drop. I still felt it was way overpriced for what they provide.) I don't appreciate being expected to stay in a bug-infested zone and feel the staff doesn't much care about maintaining the place. The grounds - while pretty, need sprucing up. There are tarpaulins on the front porch. Wooden areas surrounding the rooms are suffering from obvious wood rot. Parking lot is deeply muddy gravel area.

Hi AlyDar, Thank you for taking the time to leave such a thorough review. We do appreciate you mentioning the many positives, such as our delicious breakfast, the fact that we gave you two a complimentary bottle of wine at checkin, that the Inn is located within an easy walk of downtown Healdsburg, etc. We all do feel bad that your stay did not meet your expectations. I think savvy travelers will see in other reviews that our Innkeepers are actually extremely personable and guest-focused. Regarding the ants, we do apologize if this did in fact happen. We have a local pest control company visit our property weekly, and we take these issues extremely seriously. So we are re-doubling our efforts to ensure that the rooms are bug-free. You did visit us during the middle of our winter while we have been experiencing several (much needed) rainstorms, so yes, there were some tarps out on the property, and yes, our driveway can be muddy in spots during heavy rains. Future visitors to our area should know that when it rains, the sidewalks and driveway area will have puddles, too. Again, thank you for the constructive feedback and for being a wine club member at one of the Wilson wineries. Tim P/Reservations Supervisor on behalf of the Calderwood Team

My fiance and I stayed here for two nights, Christmas Day and the day after. It was a charming, rustic, and homey place. We were fortunate to have the entire upstairs floor all to ourselves! The first night we enjoyed sipping a glass of Zin from Wilsons Winery and playing Dominos in the common area. The breakfast was fantastic, wonderful and accomodating service. It was really neat staying in a house that is over 100 years old! It was located in a nice neighborhood a short drive to downtown and an easy launch off point to explore the many, many wineries in the area. An added bonus, free wine tastings! Check-in was easy, and check-out was easier. I would reccomend staying at the Calderwood to anyone looking for a different and much more pleasureable experience when visiting wine country. We went and visited several of Wilson's wineries, and really enjoyed "Wilsons". The view is unbeatable. Thanks for a great stay, hopefully we will be back soon!

HI Hargis.Jacob, Yes, it's a huge "perk" for our guests that we are owned by the Wilson family, who also own 11 local wineries...and provide guests with COMPLIMENTARY tastings at their wineries. This alone can save two people easily $40-$80 over a two- or three-day stay. We appreciate your kind words, and look forward to hosting you both again soon! Jude and Rebecca Innkeepers

I forgot to review this wonderful spot back when I stayed this past February. This place is so special – a gorgeous house with a common area full of comfy reading chairs, gigantic windows, and a crackling fire. The breakfast was as good as any five-star brunch spot in San Francisco, but served in an early 1900s dining room (which is way better). Walking distance to the charm of downtown Healdsburg. Beds were comfortable, staff super friendly. I Ioved this place so much I booked another stay this weekend.
