Reviewed 10 March 2012

What a great place to stay. Very Nice! We enjoyed the company of the Inn Keeper as well as the accomodations. Also, a nice location. Not a country setting, but, we walked to dinner and shopping on two occations. It was nice to enjoy, wine and dine without needing to drive or get a taxi.

Room Tip: Look at the rooms on line as each has it's own attrbutes and charm

This was the second time we have stayed at the Calderwood Inn and it will not be the last. The management and staff of this lovely B&B go out of their way to insure that your stay is wonderful and relaxed. Right in the town of Healdsburg and easy walking distance to the square and all the local spots. The rooms are large and comfortable with private baths and all the normal amenities. The common areas are warm and inviting and the morning breakfast is to die for. All the people staying there (a total of 7 rooms) became good friends and the exchange of winery knowledge was very helpful in planning each day's itinerary. Add to this the close proximity of literally 100 of wineries less than 20 minutes away makes this the only choice for us.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a shower if you do not like to take baths.

My companion and I stayed recently at the Calderwood Inn for the second time in six months. The gracious hospitality and peaceful surroundings make this a perfect get-away-spot for a couple of days. The histocial Victorian Inn is located a short walk from town and as this was the off season, we received a promotion that included a $70.OO credit for a choice of three restaurants in town. We combined our stay with two rounds of golf at nearby courses. The Inn includes wonderful breakfasts that change daily. The Inn Keeper was very helpful and knowledgable about the local wineries and the history of the Inn. We will definitely return. Linda and Larry

Great B&B. Awesome breakfasts. What a diverse and eclectic group of guests - Chinese, Irish, British, Texans and even Californians! Beautiful grounds. Very conveniently located. Common areas allow plenty of room to meet and talk to the other guests or to sit alone and read a book. Our room was very spacious and comfortable, with our own private entrance. Price was outstanding - 2 nights for $299 and a $70 gift certificate to your choise of 4 excellent restaurants. Violet and Julie are great hosts/housekeepers/cooks/providers of wine and snacks/... We look forward to returning the next time we're in the area.

Room Tip: The Vineyard Suite has a king bed, full kitchen and plenty of room.

My wife and i stayed here on a off season promotion that included a $70.00 credit on a choice of 3 local restaurants. Just a few blocks off the main square, everthing was great. Julie and Violet tended to our every need and made us a killer breakfast every morning. Nice old, historic victorian, peaceful, cozy. If you are into good food and wine tasting, this part of Sonoma County is inundated with winereries. I would stay here again, hands down!

Room Tip: We liked the WILSON Room, right off the kitchen on the main level and near the back entrance. The f...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Known on the California and Sonoma County Landmarks Registry as the John Miller House, this historic Queen Anne Victorian was built in 1902. Miller was a prominent fruit grower, packer and dehydrator in the early 1900s. He was also one of the first to make a commercial business of marketing dehydrated fruit. Among Miller's claims to fame is that he was the first provider to the U.S. Military of dehydrated foods. Known as K-rations during WW I and MREs today, Miller was cited by the military for "feeding the troops during WW I". (1) Miller and his wife were, like many prominent citizens of the community, anxious to furnish their home lavishly. The home is reputed to be the first in Healdsburg with two bathrooms, with indoor plumbing upstairs and downstairs.The noted horticulturist, Luther Burbank, was a good friend and assisted in the design and development of the original landscape at the front of the home, some of which remains today. The large cedar, cypress, and redwood heritage trees were planted by Burbank over 100 years ago. The lush grounds have been accented with rose bushes and numerous flowering shrubs. The same archaeological report from Sonoma State University indicates that some of the first plantings of some of Burbank's new species were planted on the Miller property. Sadly, the location and botanical name of the plants were never recorded. It is unknown if they remain on the property today.The home remained in the Miller family until the late 1930s and was a private residence until the early 1980s when it became a Bed and Breakfast. The inn has undergone extensive restoration over the years. Beautiful hand-silk screened period wall and ceiling papers accent the spacious common areas and some guest rooms. The papers are produced by Bradbury & Bradbury of Benicia, CA and are based on designs of William Morris, a prominent textile designer of the mid- to late 1800s.The formal, yet welcoming rooms include a spacious parlor with fireplace-the perfect place to enjoy the morning paper or a board game on a quiet afternoon. The spacious dining room that seats up to 14 showcases original wainscoting and built-in china cabinet and bench. The large antique table is where guests dine on Calderwood's signature gourmet breakfasts. The covered front porch with its antique wicker furniture and lacquered floor beckons you to enjoy the lush grounds, review the activities of your day or curl up with a good book. The porch is often used by local wineries who frequently co-host our complimentary evening wine hour. All nine guest rooms have private baths. Each room is decorated differently to incorporate an extensive collection of beautiful, yet comfortable period ... more   less
