“Beautiful B&B in a beautiful part of the wine country”
Reviewed 28 June 2010

I selected Belle De Jour B&B based on other TripAdvisor reviews for a four-day getaway with my wife. What a beautiful place and a great choice! We selected the king-bed Terrace Room from the photos on their website. Upon arrival, Brenda greeted us where we learned we could have our choice of three rooms... including the more expensive Carriage House suite (for the same price). After viewing all three beautiful rooms, we chose to stay with our original selection based on the abundance of light and the huge romantic double hot tub in the room. The room was very comfortable with a private patio area and lovely views of the rear gardens and countryside. The shower was a bit small, so visitors desiring more space in the the shower would probably prefer a different room. Breakfast was delicious each morning, with special coffees, fresh fruit, breads or muffins, and some egg dishes. Tom & Brenda had recommendations for restaurants and wineries in the area. The town of Healdsburg was a great base for shopping and dining, the surrounding countryside was fantastic for our interest in cycling.

Beautiful and private 6 acres of park-like ambiance.... great room, wonderful and creative beakfast each morning, and perfect hospitality.... it was everything we could have asked for.... just at the north edge of Healdsburg, which is our favorite town in Sonoma Valley. Tom and Brenda were great hosts!

We spent two fabulous nights in the Carriage House. What a wonderful stay. Brenda and Tom are fun hosts - not only do they treat guests to a delicious breakfast, but they also seem to know all the good places to go visit. No wonder, they've been running Belle de Jour Inn for 25 years. We look forward to our next trip to Healdsburg and visit at Belle de Jour Inn.

We enjoyed three days at Belle de Jour which is ideally located to experience the local wineries and sights. The accommodation is very comfortable and the large grounds perfect for relaxing after a day's sight seeing and wine tasting. Tom and Brenda are excellent hosts and made excellent restuarant and winery suggestions.

We stayed at Belle de Jour while celebrating our 1st Wedding Anniversary. It was a wonderful experience, and is deserving of its high rank. Tom and Brenda were very sweet and accommodating. We inadvertently arrived long past the check-in time, but were greeted with graciousness and hospitality. Tom arranged for a late dinner in town, and called ahead to notify the restaurant that we were coming, which was a nice touch. Because no other guests were staying that night (a Monday), he upgraded us to the terrace room at no charge--such a wonderful surprise!
The grounds are beautiful and the room was very specious. It looks exactly as pictured on the website (could use some updating, but was very cute and quaint). It contained a lovely, private terrace, and a jacuzzi bathtub that came with bubbles. It also had a romantic gas fireplace, which kept the room comfortably warm (a little tricky to work, however). The only caveat of the room was the lack of shades/blinds on the windows. We were up with the sun! So if you are planning on sleeping in, perhaps consider a different room.
Breakfast was delectable, and we hope to obtain the recipe for the eggs. Tom provided us with free tasting coupons to several wineries and helped us plan our day. The Inn is a bit outside of town, but we welcomed the peaceful solitude. Overall, it was a great experience, and we look forward to returning soon!

We chose Belle de Jour Inn to celebrate our anniversary. Tom and Brenda were very accommodating and it was such a pleasure to feel at home in their cozy and welcoming bed and breakfast. They were so helpful about the area, what to see, where to go, and especially what restaurants to enjoy while there. The surroundings were so beautiful too. We couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely be returning to Belle de Jour Inn!

Eighteen years ago my husband and I stayed at the Belle de Jour Inn and had such a memorable time that we kept talking about getting to go back....well 3 kiddos got in the way....but now, as empty nesters, we finally got the chance to stay at the Belle again last weekend. It is as delightful and charming as we remembered and the fact that the innkeepers are the very same great couple that have been there all these years just made our trip that much more wonderful! I highly recommend this charming inn as the perfect place to spend your wine country weekend. Can't wait to go back!
