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

We had a lovely stay at the Calderwood. The room was spacious, clean and uniquely decorated. Loved the shared areas downstairs which includes a large living room, dining room and a front porch. They had enclosed the front porch for the season, so we were still able to enjoy a glass of wine outside. The breakfast was delicious and filling with fresh ingredients. The Inn is located just a short walk to the downtown area with lots of restaurants, shops and tasting rooms.

Property's Favorite Review
Great little gem walkable to downtown. Staff is very nice and helpful. Rooms are cozy and a nice getaway. The closet was a fun antique cabinet. Each room had a private bathroom and a TV. The bathroom for my room was rather small, but fine for a short trip by myself.

The property was very beautiful and appropriately decorated with unique, special pieces. The chef prepared a delicious gourmet breakfast, and was very personal and friendly. Other than that, we would have been happier at any chain hotel down the road, and saved some money. The housekeeper was not clear at check in, giving one of us some instructions, and giving different written instructions to the other. We were asked to move our car after checking in, so moved it to street parking. We later found out that there was more secure parking further behind the property, but no one told us that. We left for dinner, and returned at 6:50, in the pouring rain, and were locked out, with no emergency number or code to the outside door. After FaceBook messaging the property and calling the local police we finally got a return call in about 20 minutes. Apparently the code was on the paper given to the spouse, who didn't do the checking in, and no code was mentioned to the person who did. We didn't bring that paper along to dinner. Furthermore, there was supposed to be an emergency phone number posted outside, and the next day there was. We were leaving earlier than the scheduled breakfast hour on our final day, and as suggested on "the paper", we requested "to-go" breakfasts of a muffin, and such. When we left the property at the hour we told the housekeeper that we would be leaving on the prior night, there was nothing prepared for us, and no one around to inquire with. Lastly, there were damp towels, neatly rolled up and placed along the wall behind the beautiful claw-foot bathtub, so the bathroom smelled like mold.

We were able to make a last-minute reservation on New Year’s Eve. (Had planned a day trip, but brought along overnight bags, jic!). Haley, our host, graciously welcomed us, and we had a wonderful overnight stay in the upstairs Mazzocco Room, where a bottle of Mazzocco’s 2021 Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel Verano was waiting for us. We checked in too late to snag a cookie, so we might just have to return soon! Breakfast was delicious and ample. The host and chef were gracious, and the house is beautifully appointed.

We loved our stay. Great location. Priced Right. Wonderful old property. We were in Healdsburg for just one night to pick up our wine club order at a different location. The price was very reasonable for the area. Some places can be quite pricey. Bonus, they were cool with a single night's reservation. The location is not in the main square, but we walked multiples times for all our stops. A leisurely stroll down the dedicated paved path was very simple. Or you could simple walk on the sidewalks. Healdsburg is definitely great for walking, jogging, biking, but especially walking. Room was clean and well appointed. This is a location originally built in 1902 but nicely updated for modern conveniences. Our room (DeLorimier) specifically was nice sized although it hand angled ceilings that might not be great for someone exceptionally. The window side of the bed had this issue, you will be great at any height in the left side. Speaking of size, the bathroom was a nice size for a building of this age, but the actual shower was a bit small. Someone of a larger stature might have an issue with the corner shower. I think that was specific to our room. I know for a fact that the Suite rooms are very nicely sized with luxurious sized bathrooms. We just needed a comfortable room that was clean, safe, and welcoming. We did get a giggle about the TV in our room. Think Michael Scott from the Office and the one Jan throws a candle at. That said, we did not go there for the TV. It was actually perfect for nap time in the late afternoon to rest of from a morning of good food and wine out on the town. Pictures for other rooms shows large TV's. The angled ceilings make it difficult to place anything larger on a vertical surface. The morning breakfast was delicious. Not huge portions and a there was just one main course on the menu, but the taste was wonderful. Friendly staff. There are a number of other B&Bs and wineries associated with the property owners, many within walking distance from the Calderwood Inn. A few wineries were just outside of the central square area of town. A short drive is all you need. The general Healdsburg area is loaded with wineries. If you like Napa and want to more relaxed, old timey kind of spot, this is where you should go. Wine, Beer, Mixed Drinks and Food Recommendations: - Black Oak Coffee Roasters (Awesome banana bread and good coffee) - Healdsburg Bar and Grill - Casual food, great place for a family with kids or a friends wanting a bite to eat and some wine, beer and a cocktail. - Roof 106 is a good choice for dinner, but make a reservation. Lunch was easier for a walk-in on a previous visit. - Costeaux French Bakery is busy for breakfast on weekends but worth the wait. - Gallina D'Oro, or the Hen of Gold (formerly El Farolito) is super good mexican food. I think the name change happened in Oct 2023. - Breathless Wines if you are into the bubbly. Can't say enough about the wines, outdoor tasting area, and staff. Always a treat. - There is an endless number of places to eat, drink, and shop. Nothing has ever disappointed.

We have been to many B&B's - from CA to New England and this property was meticulous in every detail. From the outside tranquil "lanai" seating area to the beautiful grounds, to the superb breakfasts, to the most comfortable beds to the spacious and luxurious bathroom, I can't say enough. Centrally located and close to great shops and restaurants, particularly Little Saint, it was definitely our home away from home and if we could have, we would have extended our trip. An added bonus was that this Inn is attached to the Wilson wineries so those tastings were free! We will be back and bring friends.

Staff were friendly, and common areas were welcoming, but room (Jaxton Key) was airless and claustrophobic, and breakfast was underwhelming. Overall experience felt impersonal. High cost for what was offered.

Hi Lynne. Thanks for your sharing your insights. Yes, our Jaxon Keys room is our least expensive/smallest room, so.... And we do feel that we offer great value, i.e., there is complimentary parking and WiFi, we have comped wine tastings at 11 local wineries, it's an easy walk to the downtown. Etc. Our best wishes. Jude and Kiki, innkeepers

My wife and I were on a Roadtrip from Seattle to San Francisco and planned to have 2 nights in Sonoma but had nothing booked until 2 days before arrival. The Calderwood appeared on a Google Search and after some quick research, decided it was perfect for our needs. Being part of the Wilson Wineries, I read Free Tastings were part of the package so booked. Jude was great taking our room booking. KiKi was fab by booking Tasting Sessions over 3 days. She was also an awesome host and went above and beyond. We had a Standard Room and perfectly acceptable with charm and character. Being over 6ft the sloped ceiling in bathroom was not without its challenges 🤣. Breakfast just arrives when you sit down and you have no idea what to expect - bit of fun! Living area lovely. Don't pay much attention to the negative commemts - the Charlwood is fab. It's not a 5 or 4 Star official award but everything about our stay was 5*. Only niggle was check in times change so we saw nobody to check us in but excellent instructions were suffice and ,....... as said before in other Reviews, you miss out on the wine at Check In when you most want/need one!! Thanks Charlwood Team. Jonathan & Josephine

We enjoyed our stay at Calderwood Inn. The innkeepers/staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The breakfast hour was a great way to meet new people and get extra ideas for each day's itinerary, and breakfast itself changed each day but was always well done and included a hot dish (omelette, brioche French toast) to go with some fruit and baked good. My only complaints (and admittedly very minor complaints!) had too do with the pillows (too squishy...I like extra firm) and lack of fan in the bathroom -- it got a little humid in there! The location is idea! The inn is set in a quiet neighborhood just off the Foss Creek trail, and it's an easy 10 minute walk to Healdsburg Plaza and all the action to be found there. We also loved the fact that we could taste at any (or all!) of Wilson's wineries -- there were more than we could possibly fit in. All in all, a great experience!
