My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon for a few nights and we will definitely be returning the next time we vacation to CA. The husband and wife owners know how to treat their guests well. Not only do they make a great cappuccino in the morning but Brenda (the wife) cooked up an amazing breakfast for us every morning and Tom (the husband) gave us amazing winery recommendations based on some wineries we told him we liked. There are hundreds of wineries in CA and by definition we've been to some average ones, but every recommendation that Tom gave us ended up being one of our favorites. I would highly recommend this cute B&B.

Driving down the driveway after a weeks stay at Belle de Jour Inn is one of those moments that comes way too soon! This was our first visit to BdJ, but it definitely won’t be our last. In fact, we have already made reservations for a return visit in September.

We found this wonderful inn through Trip Advisor. The reviews were filled with raves. One might expect some less than positive reviews - but there were none. This is quite remarkable!

Tom and Brenda are the ultimate hosts which we attribute to their 27 years of making every guest feel welcome. All the accommodations are very tastefully decorated. The grounds are lovely. The breakfasts of fresh fruit, juice, freshly baked treats, egg dishes, together with their perfect lattes, are a great way to start the day. We enjoyed the conversation time spent with fellow guests where we exchanged wine tasting notes and restaurant experiences.

When we asked about visiting a winery that required a reservation, Tom and Brenda offered to make the arrangements for us. After determining what types and styles of wine we preferred, they made suggestions as to which wineries to visit - many of which we would have never found on our own.

The many accolades expressed in the reviews of Belle de Jour Inn are well deserved. The innkeepers, Tom and Brenda, truly make this a one-of-a-kind haven.

First time in the area and found this outstanding B&B on the internet. Can't believe our luck. We spent three nights here and cannot say enough nice things. A delight in every way--from the welcoming drive up to the friendly main building to the interesting landscaping and ubiquitous flower varieties to the covey of 14 amusing quail that skittered to and fro like indecisive circus clowns across the lawn every evening as we enjoyed a libation in the crisp evening air. To get to breakfast, we walked down a long sidewalk lined with fresh-blooming and almost overwhelmingly fragrant jasmine...the breakfast was bountiful and delicious--it was all we could do to resist snatching a couple of extra scones...the fruit was the best we've ever had, for ripeness and piquant flavor...our hosts offered excellent advice on wineries to visit and which restaurants to check out. We liked the location, because it was just on the edge of town and only a couple of minutes right onto the square. Oh, and it was quiet, private and restful...wish we could have stayed a week! We have Healdsburg on our "must return" list and this is the destination!

We've been coming to BDJ for nearly 20 years, sometimes twice annually, and the feeling as soon as we pull in the drive never changes... that anticipation of wonderful days to come filled with relaxation, friendly faces, great food & wine, fresh air and the beauty of nature.

Set on 6 acres of beautiful grounds at the top of a hill and featuring fabulous cottage style accommodations it's Heaven on Earth.

Innkeepers Tom & Brenda make everyone feel at home and leave no detail unattended. Brenda's rose gardens are a site to behold and their breakfasts are scrumptious.

Each room is filled with antiques, wood floors, top of the line linens and fixtures and loads of charm, with our favorite being the Carriage House suite. There are books a plenty (and hi speed wireless if you must work).

While other B&Bs have come and gone, Tom & Brenda have been owners here for over 25 years, and they know Sonoma and its best places like no others. There's no more romantic and relaxing place to stay and no better innkeepers with whom to entrust your much needed respite away from the daily grind.

Perhaps we'll meet you there this August when we return again.

If you want a quite, cozy, warm, comfortable, nice place to spend a weekend away, Belle du Jour Inn is the perfect place. Jim and Brenda are the most wonderful proprietors you could find anywhere. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and well appointed. Breakfast is so tasty. Advice on where to go and what to do is accurate and up to date. You can't ask for more in a bed and breakfast.

This was our 4th stay at Belle du Jour and we love it just as much as prior visits. A special and romantic place. All of the rooms are large and exceptionally clean. Tom and Brenda are excellent hosts both in terms of recommendations as to local wineries and restaurants and also the breakfasts which are varied, flavorful and filling. When we travel to CA wine country we are usually there for two weeks and this is one of the more relaxing and restorative places we stay. And Sonoma is much less hectic than Napa Valley......all the amentities and attractions without all the stress!

Room Tip: All the rooms are large, well furnished and quiet.
