This inn does everything right. The property is lovely and flawlessly maintained. The staff is unfailingly helpful and friendly. The breakfast is delicious: don't skip the mimosas. It's also a good time to get tips from owner Steve on which vineyard or restaurant to try next: his picks were always great. The pool area is luxurious. I wish I'd had more time to spend so I could have played some croquet or bocce. Oh, and there are dozens of gorgeous rose bushes growing out back too.
Wine tastings every afternoon from 4-6 are fun, if you haven't succumbed to a nap by this time of the day.
This place is a bit pricey but worth it for a very special experience. Our group stayed in two rooms in the main building. The Dogwood, upstairs, was on the small side but very comfortable and cozy. The Wisteria downstairs was larger and had its own private porch: probably worth the extra 10% or so.
The only negative I can think of, and this is nitpicking: the freeway runs behind the property, and while not visible, can be heard with the window open.
It is about a mile walk to the plaza in Healdsburg, certainly doable but we wound up driving to dinner each night. The town and surrounding countryside are amazing and we'll have to go back again soon to explore all the things we couldn't get to.
