More about our Garden: Peaceful, private, large and sun-filled, with landscape that creates zen-like tranquility. An amazing surprise in the heart of the town, handy to all the town square has to offer (restaurants, shops, farmers market, gourmet and organic grocery stores, wine tasting), you feel the peace of total privacy once you step into the garden. With views to enjoy you can wander into the herb garden, or pick your own sun-ripened cherry tomatoes, to supplement your cooking activities. Help yourself to lemons from the lemon tree, plums in season, and watch the walnut and olive trees ripen! Seasonal highlights change, but this garden is beautiful all year long!

Calling all cyclists!
Healdsburg is made for cyclists of all levels! We have six bicycles that you can use, there are two rental shops in town, or if you are elite cyclists, bring your own! You can mosey along roads that follow the valley floor (up Dry Creek Road and down West Dry Creek Road), or you can go for longer cycles, say up to Geyserville, or use our maps to find the super challenging hills! If the concept of exercise is better than the reality, cycle to Costeaux Bakery for an amazing breakfast (this side of the Plaza), or cycle to one of the beautiful nearby wineries for a picnic!
Amazing restaurants and wineries! Check them out, wonderful wines from Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, Anderson Valley, Chalk Hill, Napa.... you get the picture! You can stroll around town to world-class restaurants. Some of our favorites include: Scopa (Italian), Willi's Seafood (small plates, very fun), Barn Diva (sit in the garden or in the elegant but casual restaurant) and Ravenous. If it is named chef's you are looking for, visit Charlie Palmer's Dry Creek Kitchen (beautiful patio and restaurant). If you do want to venture further afield - Diavolo in Geyserville is just up the road (they make their own sausage, pizzas.....yum), or take the 128 over the top to Napa and visit the CIA (Culinary Institute of America) for lunch or dinner. We could go on, there are more - these are our favorites so far!
