We stayed at the Honor Mansion for the first part of our honeymoon and I'm so glad I chose this place!! I expected a very nice experience, but this place really pulled out all the stops. We arrived right at the end of their cocktail hour, but they left out the stuff a little longer for us so we could enjoy some wine and cheese. We actually had some wine from a nearby winery, which prompted us to visit there on our trip!
The owner sat down with us after breakfast the next day to go over the area and make recommendations and give us a tour of the entire place. We were truly impressed with him as well as all the staff. The food and drinks served for breakfast were phenomenal (and coming from me that means a lot because I am a very picky eater).
The accomodations were beautiful. We stayed in the Garden Suite. The only issue we had was with the toilet - and they immediately fixed it once we brought it up. The grounds are lovely - and I wish we were there longer (and in warmer weather) to enjoy them. This place would be awesome with a group of friends. The putting greens, croquet, bocce ball etc would make for some good times.
Healdsburg in general was also very impressive. If you like Zinfandel wine -this is the place to go!!! We only visited a few wineries..but some of our favorites were Mauritson and Dutcher Crossing. Zin Restaurant restaurant was good, and so was the Seafood place...I forget the name. A local casual joint recommended by the owner of the Honor Mansion.
If you have time, drive up to Armstrong Woods. Its a gorgeous national park with towering Redwoods. Outstanding! You can stop at Korbel on the way back.too!
The shopping in town was great. Such cute shops and you can buy food at that local marketstore and take with you to Wineries.
If you are planning to come to Healdsburg, I cannot imagine a better place to stay. You will not be disappointed!!!
