We spent the last half of our Christmas trip here, and the service is great. The guest services staff are extremely helpful with suggestions, reservations, and special requests. The owners are present and friendly without being obtrusive. Location is close enough to town that walking to dinner and enjoying some wine without worrying about driving is nice option (and they provide flashlights for the walk home).

Our suite was a freestanding 'cottage' with plenty of quiet and privacy. We had a nice patio with lounge chairs, jaccuzzi, and fridge. The suite was large and comfortable with some very nice touches. Although the decor was a bit frilly for my taste, it was a nice place to call home for several days. Bed and linens were excellent.

Happy hour and breakfast are in the main house, and guests are welcome to relax here as well. The grounds are extensive and very pretty.

This is a lovely inn, and is outstanding in every way. The cottages are beautifully appointed, and the entire property is very well maintained. The owners have clearly devoted a great deal of attention to anticipating the needs of their guests, and their focus on detail and quality shows in every aspect of the property. It is very conveniently located to Healdsburg, and the owners are very knowledgeable about the restaurants and wineries in the area - Many excellent ones to choose from! We have stayed in a number of first class hotels around the country - The amenities of Honor Mansion equals or exceeds all of them, and the individual commitment to service distinguishes it further. A wonderful part of our CA vacation!

My husband and I spent two nights in early November and loved every minute! It was our first time to Ca. and the wine country. Sonoma Valley and Healdsburg were wonderful. The Honor Mansion was outstanding. We were greeted warmly and offered a free upgrade to a suite, which included wine and cake for a belated anniversary. The breakfasts were awesome and the recommendations for wine tasting right on! The property and accommodations were beautiful. Many thanks for a memorable visit. We definitely hope to return, and highly recommend this hotel.

This was our first time here and we would return in a flash. Steve and Cathi are great hosts and have made this house a special place, with attention paid to all kinds of unexpected details. The decor in the public areas is charming, as was our room, the Magnolia. We loved the extensive breakfast both mornings, which included a mimosa (or two) at no extra cost. We always like it when breakfast is served at individual tables and this added to our satisfaction here. In the surprisingly extensive grounds there is an unheated pool, tennis and croquet courts, and two bocce courts which by themselves would warrant a return for us. Our room was large and well furnished. The bathroom was presumably added across the back wall - a small toilet and vanity on the left and a separate walk-in shower on the right. Their smallness might be an issue for some people.
Complimentary cookies, wine, and cheese are served late afternoon.

Room Tip: Other rooms might have larger bathrooms. Our room was in the front. There is some traffic during the day but very little at night. Some people might prefer a room in the back.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write us this lovely review! We are so glad that you enjoyed the Magnolia room and its amenities, and we are happy that you loved breakfast and the grounds.

Our lap pool is solar heated May through November, which is an effort to conserve energy by avoiding heating it with gas during the colder winter months. When the Mansion was built in 1883, there was originally no plumbing in the building, so we built in the European style baths to ensure that each guest room has its own private bathroom.

Thank you again for choosing the Honor Mansion and we are so looking forward to you folks returning.

Until then,
Steve, Cathi, & the Honor Mansion

We took a last minute anniversary trip to Sonoma and Napa, never having been there before. From the suggestions of others here, we booked Honor Mansion for our 3 nights in Sonoma. The only rooms they had available were the Vineyard Suites, which were a little more than we had hoped to pay, but we were so glad we did!

We ended up getting there an hour before check-in, knowing that we may not be able to get in, but thought we would take a chance. Luckily for us, it was ready and we had a very helpful tour of the grounds on our way to Vineyard Suite II. The grounds are really beautiful and we wished we had spent more time there, but we had full days planned. Our suite was beautiful and there was a bottle of wine and small cake waiting for us for our anniversary.

As mentioned, the grounds are absolutely beautiful, perfectly landscaped and maintained from top to bottom. Our suite was perfect, nicely sized with a love seat and ottoman, small table, wet bar area and nice large bathroom with a double sided fireplace between the bathtub and bedroom. It was chilly in the evenings so we used the fireplace regularly. The bed was SOO comfortable, great mattress and pillows and very soft sheets. The outside area was a nice private fenced in patio with lounge chairs, tub and a small fridge and microwave. Coming from Ohio, it seemed a little odd to have the fridge and microwave outside, but there really wasn't room for it in the wet bar area, even though that would have been more convenient. It ended up working out fine.

All of the staff were very nice and helpful, especially because I had very recently become gluten-free and had not notified them prior to our stay. They were incredibly helpful with making sure I got my gluten free options for the morning breakfasts, which were really good. The owner Steve and his daughter are gluten-free also, so they gave me great suggestions of other gluten free foods that they enjoy. The GF english muffins they have were a favorite! The eggs benedict menu was by far our favorite, but there was always good fruit and other options in addition to the daily specials. We had the special mimosas each day also, with the blackberry and blood orange being our favorites.

What we liked most about Honor Mansion is that it didn't really feel like a B & B, as we aren't really B & B people. Breakfast is in a 2 hours time frame, so you don't have to be there at an exact time. Tables were mostly set for 2, with one or two for 4 people, so you don't feel compelled to have to talk to other guests, but it's still easy to if you want. They also seem to have thought of everything. They bring coffe and/or hot water for tea to your room in the morning, plus there is a coffee machine in the room OR you can go to the main house where there is a Keurig available 24/7. There is brandy in your room, and in the main house, water and pop available in a refrigerator by the back of the main house, small bowls of mints, and candies in your room and the main house. Whatever you might need, it is there. In the room, there was a book light in the nightstand and a flashlight for walk to town at night.

The only downsides I can think of are things related to the cooler weather when we visited, so I realize they aren't so much of a concern during their busy season. But, I think we would have prefered an actual hot tub on the patio instead of a jacuzzi bath tub. The idea of going out there in the cold and getting it started was just too much for us, but if we had an already filled hot tub we just have just hopped in, we would have. Also, the tile floor in the bathroom was very cold. I called the office and asked for slippers, which they brought out very quickly, but if they had put radiant heat in the floor that would have been great. These are very nitpicky, little things. Because it really felt they had thought of everything, it does set the standard high.

We really wish we hadn't planned our days so fully so that we would have had time to enjoy the grounds more. We also didn't get back in time to enjoy the appetizers and wine hour in the afternoons, which I wish we had. Hopefully next time, we definitely want to go back!!

Room Tip: Vineyard Suite II has a gas fireplace, which is great in the chilly months.

Thank you so much for this amazing review! We cannot thank you enough for taking the time and energy to explain all the things you loved about your stay.

We are so glad that you enjoyed our unique fusion of resort inn style from the breakfasts to the grounds. We are delighted that you were able to enjoy gluten free breakfast and the mimosas each morning. We are glad to hear you enjoyed the slippers we brought out to you for the cool Sonoma County mornings!

We did have the refrigerators in the rooms in the past, but we found that occasionally guests would be woken up by the refrigerator running during the night, and we didn't want this to be an inconvenience for our guests’ restful sleep. The microwaves are located outside with the refrigerator for your convenience and because we don’t want any lingering smells in the suites if a guest chooses to warm up their leftover salmon in the microwave.

We so enjoyed helping you celebrate your anniversary, and we are looking forward to pampering you folks again soon.

Warm Regards,
Steve, Cathi, & the Honor Mansion Staff
