“Fine wine 90+ points, Honor Mansion 100 points”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Just came back from our first vacation to CA wine country. My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Honor Mansion. Beautiful grounds, activities, wine tasting, spa services, friendly and helpful staff, and cordial owners made this vacation a memorable time. They even contacted us a couple of weeks before we arrived to help book our winery visits, restaurants, and spa services to ensure we didn't miss out on anything we wanted to experience. Never experienced anything like that. Thank you Steve. One of the best B&Bs that you will ever find.

Let me begin by saying that I have stayed all over the world for my job, and have had the opportunity to experience some extremely highly rated hotels (Ritz, Four Seasons, etc). For those of you who have also experienced these luxury hotel chains, you know that the expectation has been set for top notch service, food, and amenities. Well let me tell you about a hidden gem in Healdsburg called the Honor Mansion...

The Honor Mansion is a beautiful, completely refurbished Victorian style bed and breakfast that is run by Steve and Cathi Fowler. Steve and Cathi are not only the consumate professionals, but are also two of the friendliest people you could ever meet. Steve's knowledge of the local area, including the numerous restaurants and wineries is unparalleled, and Cathi's breakfasts are nothing short of amazing! My wife has Celiac disease (allergy to Gluten), so often times she is not able to eat the majority of food that is offered in restaurants and hotels/B&B's). That however, was not the case during our excuisite stay at the Honor Mansion. As it turns out, Steve also has Ciliac Disease, and Cathi has mastered the art of Gluten Free cooking and baking, making some of the best GF pasteries I've ever tasted.

After breakfast, Steve, map in hand, would come over to our table and go over his favorite wineries and restaurants in the Sonoma (Healdsburg) area, and we were never disappointed.

The graciousness of our hosts, combined with the spectacular accomodations, make this trip to Sonoma and the Honor Mansion a vacation that we'll remember for the rest of our lives!

Room Tip: We stayed in Vineyard Suite #3 and it was gorgeous.

Thank you for your kind words! We really appreciate the effort you took to compliment our property and staff, and compare us so graciously to those hotels of such high standards. We love knowing that our guests feel treated like royalty while also enjoying a personal interaction with our owners and innkeepers in our suggestions for enjoying the beautiful Sonoma County.
It is so important to make safe and delicious gluten-free food for those with gluten allergies or Celiac disease, and we are glad to share our recipes for gluten-free gourmet food with you!

Hopefully your future world travels brings you back to Healdsburg sometime in the future!
Cheers,

Steve & Cathi and the Honor Mansion staff

I (like everyone else probably) agonize over planning my hotel stays when I go away, and our trip to Sonoma/Napa was not any different. I have been to the area several times and never found a place that wow'd me...nor do I usually write reviews about them! I can happily say that Honor Mansion exceeded all of my expectations and more!!! My fiance and I had gotten engaged a few days prior and Honor Mansion had surprised us with a nice note and lemon poppy seed cake in our room at check in, along with a nice bottle of wine. We had stayed in the Angel Oak room which was whimsically decorated without being tacky. The deck off of the room overlooking the pool and grounds was fantastic to unwind at night under the stars with the complimentary sherry provided or in the morning sipping our coffee/tea and eating the pre-breakfast biscotti's! I never felt like I had to "tip toe" around the house unlike some B and B's I have stayed at. The grounds were beautiful and well kept, and everything had a nice relaxing feel to it. The staff were extremely friendly and kind. Breakfast each morning was plentiful, and a great base for a day of wine tasting..including the two free mimosa's per person. As for the walk to town, yes, it is a walk...probably 15 min (with heels on mind you) although after all the eating and drinking you do the 15 min walk is well needed! On the way back it is a bit dark, but they do provide you with flash lights if needed. I never felt unsafe walking once and I am a bit of a wuss. However, if you must drive to town it probably is less then two minutes tops...so either way you can't go wrong. There are so many little extra's that Honor Mansion provides like bottled water/soda around the pool, afternoon snacks and appetizers as well as wine and so much more. We were so sad to leave even though we were going on to Yountville, my favorite place-I knew the service and detail was going to be nowhere near as good as Honor Mansion!!!! We most definately will stay there again on our next trip to Sonoma without hesitation.

We are so honored that we have “wow’d” you and we look forward to hosting you again sometime soon! Until then,

We spent just one night here recently but we'll be back. The property is anchored by a beautifully restored Victorian and surrounded by gorgeous gardens, a croquet lawn, 2 bocce courts, putting green, and a tennis court. The suites are in separate cottages on the grounds and we enjoyed Wine Suite III on our stay. The rooms are wine country luxurious with 4 poster beds and every amenity you can imagine. We were upgraded to a suite with a private patio and outdoor jacuzzi. The staff anticipated our needs and surpassed our expectations. We arranged for massages by the pool on arrival at the hotel and would highly recommend this experience. The hotel has 2 private cabanas for couples massages by the pool. Nirvana!

Room Tip: Wine Suite III was lovely. The Wisteria Room in the main building looked beautiful as well.

It's all the little touches that add up to a great experience at the Honor Mansion. This was our second time there, and we wanted to see if the 2 nd time around was as great as the first. It was. The property, room and grounds are immaculately kept. Many small flowing water sculptures dot the lawns and private terraces. We have not stayed in the mansion itself, but have had phenomenal experiences in the pool suite and most recently the Vineyard Suite 1. I have no doubt that the main house rooms are also beautiful. From the breakfast spread in the dining room to the afternoon wine and appetizers, the homemade cookies all day, the complimentary soda, water, cappuccino machine 24 hrs. Nobody needs to be hungry here. In fact dining at tables on the patio next to the koi pond is great enjoyment. They will even give you fish food if you want to feed them.
The pool feels great on a hot day and their back lawns house a tennis court, basketball court, croquet lawn and baci court nestled amidst grapevines, roses, and many other types of flowers, fruits and vegetables. Service is extremely helpful and friendly. The sheets on the beds are SO soft. A great wine country inn in a great town. You can't miss at Honor Mansion.

Steve, Cathi and the staff of Honor Mansion are wonderful. We live in Healdsburg and my sister and her husband came up from San Diego to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. We all stayed at the Mansion and it was an incredible experience. All of the little extra touches combined with the beauty of the grounds and the wonderful décor of the rooms made it a wonderful experience. The food was decadent and added to the special treatment that we received. We played tennis, bocce ball, croquet and relaxed in the pool. We didn’t want to miss out on a thing as it was all so inviting. We would highly recommend to anyone that they will have a very memorable experience staying at Honor Mansion. Thank you Steve, Cathi and your wonderful staff.

Thanks so much for choosing to stay with us even though you are locals. We are always surprised when we get locals but the "staycations" are getting more and more popular. It was so fun to see how you folks enjoyed yourselves here at the property; it's truly why we developed the resort grounds. We do hope we will see you again sometime!

We just returned from 4 glorious nights at the Honor Mansion in Healdsburg, CA. While there are many other lovely accommodations, nothing quite compares to this incredible property. It's the total package, the real deal - everything one could imagine or hope for and more.... delicious breakfasts; fresh coffee and biscotti at your door each morning - heaven; magnificent grounds including a pool, croquet, tennis, flower gardens and more ; we just adored our room in the mansion and shared a porch/deck area with our friends - that was delightful. Every wish is granted and often anticipated by the exemplary staff - never have we been cared for in a more gracious, helpful or friendly manner. We visited the region with friends and two of us decided we'd enjoy a massage - well, in less than 15 minutes, 2 marvelous massage therapists were on site to meet our every need and they were as accommodating as the full time mansion staff!! Upon arrival we were treated to a tour of the grounds, and an explanation of all the amenities - in our room we found a lovely bottle of wine awaiting us. Walking distance from the town square and spectacular sunsets with gorgeous vistas to gaze upon. I just can not say enough about Honor Mansion. If you find yourself planning a trip to Sonoma wine country, do not miss this - it's a treat you will remember all of your lives. It's a 10!

Room Tip: If you enjoy being part of the action, there are 5 rooms in the mansion - they are charming. If you...
