“Our Wine Country Favorite--By Far!”
Reviewed 10 February 2010

My husband and I just returned from our sixth stay at Belle de Jour over the past 3 or 4 years, and we continue to believe it is the perfect place to stay in Napa or Sonoma. It is a 2-3 minute drive to downtown Healdsburg, yet the rooms and the grounds feel like they are on a country estate. The rooms are quiet and very private, each with its own private entry. We particularly like the views to the east over the lovely grounds, where we enjoyed watching quail and other birds and the two resident deer.

Tom and Brenda are perfect hosts. They are genuinely friendly, and, if you want suggestions--for restaurants or for wineries to visit, for example, they are well-informed and helpful. They gladly make dinner reservations for their guests and call wineries for tasting appointments. And they serve a delicious breakfast--usually a light egg dish and always good coffee, fresh fruit, and fresh-baked biscuits, scones, or other breakfast bread. Tom and Brenda have a gift for making you feel welcome without at all invading your privacy.

We have told our friends that we love Belle de Jour because it is as comfortable as visiting relatives--but without the relatives.

My wife and I and our adult daughter thoroughly enjoyed our three day stay at Belle de Jour Inn. Our rooms in the separate cottages were beautiful, as are the grounds. Tom and Brenda were born to be innkeepers: friendly, interesting and very knowledgeable. They got us going each morning with coffee, an excellent breakfast and a helpful planning session. A morning that includes Brenda’s apricot scones is a good morning. Healdsburg and this part of Sonoma has plenty of fine restaurants, small shops and wineries without the sense of a wine-country Mall. We put Belle de Jour in the 99+ percentile of B&Bs.

Ten years ago, we tried Belle de Jour. We have since gone back every year as we just plain love it. Tom and Brenda are the perfect innkeepers. Great breakfasts, ideas for traveling the area, reservations for dinner, wineries to visit - nothing is beyond their capabilities. We will be back again next year.

We loved the Belle de Jour Inn. Tom and Brenda were absolutely wonderful! They helped us plan our activities and always seemed to be there when we returned to welcome us back and make sure we were having a great time. The inn and grounds are beautiful, and our room was just what we had hoped for. The daily breakfasts were also great, especially when Brenda served her award winning scones! I would highly recommend them to anyone traveling to the Healdsburg area.

Tom & Brenda are wonderful hosts, with an abundance of excellent advice for experiencing the area. Located near the wine districts of Alexander Valley, Dry Creek, and the Russian River valley, their inn provides easy access for touring the excellent local wineries. The rooms are wonderfully decorated, and the breakfasts are elegant and healthy. Need a dinner reservation or a contact in the area, no problem, just ask your hosts. Highly recommended for a relaxing visit to a beautiful area.

I was welcomed with warmth and a smile by Brenda one of the owners. My accomodation was immediately upgraded because they had extra space. My cottage was gorgeous and the grounds so very well kept! I would have loved to stay longer than a couple nights. The cottage was so pretty all in white with a 4 poster bed and huge bathroom! I was in the area for a wedding and Brenda even helped me out with my bridesmaid duty preparations. I needed wire cutters and maroon thread! Brenda came to the rescue! Can't get that kind of service too many places. This B and B is highly reccomended by me! Nice location right accross from the simi winery too!

My husband and I stay here every August and have been doing so for nearly eleven years. The grounds are extensive and very private and peaceful. It is located just a few blocks from the downtown plaza and within a short driving distance from any number of wineries. The cottages are private and secluded, neat and clean. There is a lovely breakfast every morning. Tom and Brenda, the owners, are on site and ready to advise on wineries to visit or to make reservations at recommended restaurants. For the money, this is just an all around exceptional value
