Great stay for a mother-grown daughter visit to wine country (Sonoma) California! Our room was beautiful and spacious with very comfortable beds. The breakfast each morning was delicious! The afternoon wine and bites gathering for guests and hosts was fun and informative and the inn itself, steeped in local history, had so many awesome spots to relax, read, visit or do nothing at all. The hosts could not have been nicer. I can’t wait for another visit to the River Belle Inn.

This was, by far, one of the best places we've stayed anywhere in our travels! Owners are a local couple and are an absolute pleasure - they've taken great care in creating the perfect oasis in one of the most prime spots in Sonoma County. The home a restored 18th century, then they've added on rooms and guest services, complete with a picturesque lawn overlooking the Russian River. Gourmet breakfast served every morning when requested by some of the best staff in the country. They have a happy hour every day at 5pm with wine, cheese, and local brews and you'll have the perfect opportunity to meet the owners, explore the property, take in the views, and throw the ball with the "Queen of the Belle", a sweet yellow lab named Mia! Within walking distance from downtown Healdsburg, where there's shopping, tasting rooms, bars, and restaurants. Strongly recommend if you want a more quiet, local experience compared to the more commercialized Napa Valley!

Tom, Mitzi and “Mia” - thank you for a memorable 3 days in Healdsburg. What a wonderful B+B you offer. We felt so welcome from the moment we arrived . We loved the many alternate spots on property to sit and relax ..... On the bank of the river, on the tree swing, in the backyard, on the huge front porch.

Tom - thank you for the obvious work of love you put into rebuilding this gem of a house. The workmanship is first quality. We loved the French doors in our room that open to make a balcony view. Mitzi - thank you for your warm welcome and the exquisite interior furnishings. Thank you also for your help in packaging our wine purchases for the flight home. Everything arrived in perfect condition.

The breakfast offerings were also great. So many delicious choices, from what to eat, to where to eat it each day, make it hard to come home to our regular one choice breakfast. You have spoiled us forever!

Our room overlooking the river was absolutely breathtaking. From the soft, relaxing blue hues in the furnishings to the comfortable bed with a comforter that was the perfect weight, the room was an oasis after a long day visiting some of the many wineries in the area. A perfect place to grab a quick recharge before joining the happy hour. Before our venture into town for dinner at one of the many great restaurants.

And not to forget Mia - thank you for the love you gave to everyone. (Mia is the resident gentle Labrador). We will miss you all and hope to return soon.

We loved this little hotel! Its setting was amazing, right on the river; the location was excellent, walkable to downtown and across from the bicycle rental place. The service was warm, the breakfast very good, and the dog super cute. We would highly recommend this hotel.

First off, Tom and Mitzi are exactly the type of hosts you’d expect from staying at a place with such charm and character.

Tom is an architect/builder and came across the rundown but historic property in 2011 and began the process of acquiring the land and developing and restoring the home. He’s done an amazing job of restoring this property, while keeping the memory of this historic landmark intact.

Tom and Mitzi's attention to detail does not go unnoticed. From the furniture and decor, to the level of service provided throughout our stay, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

Just one example of this..

We had to leave early on the morning of our departure to catch our flight, and they cooked our breakfast far earlier than what they usually do for guests to accommodate our early departure.

In addition, The River Belle Inn is right across the street from Wine County Bikes and my wife and I were able to rent a couple of bikes from the shop and ride throughout Sonoma County - getting both some exercise in, while also indulging in some of the wines and food of the area! It was so convenient dropping off the bikes and walking back over to RBI to enjoy in their complimentary Happy Hour, featuring some of the best home-brew from their friend, Crazy Ed.

After Happy Hour, we were just a minutes walk from downtown and were able to enjoy in the excellent food scene of historic Healdsburg - such a quaint and beautiful area!

This is the first bed and breakfast that my wife and I have never stayed at and boy, did they set the bar high! We can’t thank them enough for making this a special anniversary weekend for us!

If you’re in Sonoma County, stay in Healdsburg and do yourself a favor and stay at the River Belle Inn - you won’t be disappointed!
