DESCRIPTION
Relax by the river with us, as we take you back to the days of Isabelle Simi’s (1875) historic grand estate. Our unique Russian River riverfront property is close enough for a nice quaint stroll to the plaza, (six blocks), yet provides an endless list of exclusive amenities that make our guests feel truly special at home here. Our mission is to provide a world class Inn that offers a combination of fresh cuisine, comfortable surroundings, helpful staff, and a one of a kind experience that builds the best relationships possible with our guests.

More than a dozen tasting rooms operate within a block or so of the inn, and Healdsburg Plaza and its shops and restaurants (and more tasting rooms) is less than a mile away.

BREAKFAST & DRINKS
Caprese-pesto omelets, sweet-apple sausage quiche, and Belgian waffles with fresh fruit and Chantilly cream are among the items prepared each morning by the inn’s chef, who also bakes a pastry daily. Each night before retiring, guests fill out “Triple Dubs” menus, indicating what among the many choices they desire for breakfast, when they’d like to dine, and where: in a river-view dining room, on its patio, on the porch, or in-room.

On warm mornings, many guests take breakfast on the river-view patio or even nearer the water.

Tom and Mitzi converted the original home’s kitchen into a parlor where in the late afternoon they serve local wines and a few custom microbrews. The room’s long redwood table came from a tree formerly on the property.

ACCOMMODATIONS
Tom, a contractor, extended the original home—and the porch—east toward the river. Ten of the inn’s dozen rooms are off a long hallway that begins at the top of the 1875 home’s original staircase, with two riverfront suites on the ground floor. Antiques, reproductions, and period-style curtains recall Simi’s lengthy occupancy, but with high-thread-count sheets and fancy bathrooms, the feel is au courant.

Four second-floor rooms in the back have Juliet balconies with splendid views; the two ground-floor suites have private patios.

The Belle’s luxurious suites features deep soaking tubs, fireplaces, river view balconies, well appointed antique furnishings, still with the conveniences of high speed WIFI, and our full plated delicious “Triple Dub Breakfast” you may never want to leave.

As with the rooms, the bathrooms glance backward but appeal to contemporary sensibilities with lavish marble or tile floors and shiny chrome fixtures. Some bathrooms have deep soaking tubs (in two cases adjacent to see-through fireplaces); others have tubs with river views.
