Healdsburg Area Hotels with Vineyard Views
Create the perfect Wine County getaway by settling into a hotel with amazing vineyard views in the Healdsburg area, a wine and culinary epicenter.
Sitting at the juncture of three prime winegrowing regions - the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and Alexander Valley wine appellations - this hip and charming foodie town makes an ideal base of operations for exploring Sonoma County.
Geyserville Inn, Geyserville
Slightly north of Healdsburg and surrounded by vineyards and staggering mountain views, the serene Geyserville Inn enchants with the charm of a cozy bed and breakfast blended with the amenities of a chic boutique hotel.
The inn's main building offers spacious bedrooms, many with fireplaces. Balconies or patios provide sweeping views, and each room includes a featherbed, thick towels, Fretté bathrobes, and down comforters. Suites—all on the second floor of a separate building—offer hardwood floors, 360-degree views, two balconies, and hot tubs. Owned and operated by two generations of the Christensen family, the inn is just minutes away from some of Sonoma County's most celebrated wineries.
The onsite, family-friendly Geyserville Grille serves traditional American cuisine. Choose to dine under the oak trees, on the redwood pool deck, at the bar, or in one of the dining rooms.
The inn is also home to DUO Wine Tasting, featuring highly acclaimed and limited production wines from Etrusca and Tonti Family Wines.
Raford Inn, Healdsburg
Built in 1880 and set on four Russian River Valley acres, this beautiful, three-story Queen Anne Victorian is now a peaceful bed and breakfast. Overlooking a lovely sprawl of vineyards ringed by redwood-forested mountains, Raford Inn is truly off the beaten path.
Lovingly preserved, the intimate inn offers five comfortably elegant guest rooms. All include private baths, queen or king beds, and a full, hot, gourmet country breakfast served every morning. Relax in the sunroom, or on wicker chairs on the wraparound veranda overlooking the gardens and grapes.
Dane Pitcher and Rita Wells, longtime Sonoma County residents, realized their dream of becoming innkeepers by buying the Raford Inn in 2004. Dane now farms Raford's estate vineyard and makes award-winning Russian River Valley wine. It's hard to miss Dane's jovial smile in the evenings and Rita's special flair at breakfast.
