My husband and I stayed at this Inn for a few nights as part of a Wine Country Bike Tour. We arrived late but the innkeeper, Lucy, had left our keys right where we could find them with a nice note. Room was comfortable and breakfasts were great! We really enjoyed the evening wine and cheese by the pool and enjoyed talking to Lucy, Archie and the other guests. They really made us feel at home. The inn is also in a great location that is close to the main square in Healdsburg. We would definitely return! Thank you, Lucy & Archie!

Stayed for 5 nights - our fourth visit at this lovely inn. Once again we ended our Californian touring holiday in Healdsburg which is so convenient for the final drive down to San Francisco airport for a late afternoon flight home to the UK. We never tire of the inn as Lucy, Ann and the team do such a great job in making every stay both fun and comfortable. The rooms are delightful, the breakfasts are plentiful and delicious and it is entertaining to talk to other guests both round the breakfast table and at the evening cheese and wine tastings round the pool. If you don't know where to eat or what to fill your day up with, Lucy or Ann will make suggestions and plans for you, whether it be wine tasting, kayaking, shopping, eating or just sightseeing. Their knowledge of the area is second to none! My husband and I look forward to our next visit.

Stayed 2 nights at the Camellia Inn and had a great stay. We stayed in the "budget room" which is very small and has a bathroom across the hall, but is about half the price of their other rooms. The room is tight, but as long as you are close with your other traveler, it's cozy. The breakfasts were hearty and delicious, and a different main course each morning. They were very helpful in pointing out local wineries to visit, and also provided some free tasting certificates for wineries that would otherwise charge a fee. Lucy and Anne treated us well...they really go the extra mile. Great place to stay in Healdsburg!

Lucy the Innkeeper was amazing. Even when the Inn seemed busy she remembered everyone's first name and made us feel very comfortable. She was very helpful when it came to wineries, restaurants and a great spa for which we received a discount because we were staying at the Inn. Our room in the tower was very large with a comfortable bed as well as a comfy sofa and chair. We had a jacuzzi style tub which helped my back after I had hurt it. The breakfasts at the Inn were amazing with Lucy making sure that everyone had enough food. Wine and cheese in the PM was perfect. Chocolate day is special so check it out. This is one of the most perfect B&Bs I'd ever stayed at and made the trip to Healdsburg great.

We loved the feel of the Camellia and the personal touch provided by the owners. As first-time visitors to CA wine country, we were very happy with the location. Plenty of the shops and restaurants are within walking distance. We were also happy to find that wine and cheese were offered every evening at the Camellia. It was a great way to socialize with the owners and other guests, which provided useful for soliciting advice for dinner plans and the subsequent days' activities. Our room was charming, and worth the discounted price that we paid. We did not use the pool. Breakfasts were wonderful. Plenty of good eats, often with themes and local input. We would absolutely stay at the Camellia Inn again.

Camellia Inn is a great place to stay. The building and the yards are really beautiful and there's a very nice pool with plenty of space for hanging out. Lucy is a fantastic host, ready with great recommendations and wine and cheese poolside every day at 5:30pm. It was a great mix of service (tasty breakfast), while at the same time feeling at home (there's a self-serve fridge). We stayed in the small budget room with a separate but private bathroom 10 feet down a hall, and it was just fine. Lastly, the location is great at just a couple of blocks from the main square. Overall, great place and at a good price.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights to visit the surrounding wineries. Location is perfect, just a couple of blocks from the main square in Healdsburg. The house itself is absolutely beautiful, stunning gardens and lovely antiques and country style furnishings inside. Lucy and Anne were both very keen to help us with anything we needed.

We stayed in the "Demitasse" room which is very small, only a double bed, with the bathroom across the hallway. It was a bit squishy at times, trying to fit two suitcases into the room, but it was good value for money (compared to other options in Healdsburg). The bathroom was gorgeous and we didn't mind at all that it wasn't an ensuite. The room did get very light early in the morning so it could be improved with some better window coverings.

Breakfast was lovely and so was the evening wine reception. We really enjoyed our stay.
