the heart of Sonoma's County's wine country, Healdsburg offers
relaxation, fun, and adventure for people of all ages. The
natural beauty, friendly attitudes, and a cosmopolitan flair
suggest the perfect backdrop for a splendid vacation.
Healdsburg area has been compared to the finest wine-growing
regions of France and Italy - both in quality of wine,
ambiance, and environment. The Town is tucked between three
lush valleys and is surrounded by over 60 wineries, the
beautiful Russian River, and lush, vineyard-covered hills. Yet
Sonoma County remains unique in that it may be the only place
on earth where an ocean, vineyards, and majestic old-growth
redwoods are within miles of each other.
Pomo Indians were the Healdsburg area's first residents. The
Town was established and incorporated in 1867 and developed
around a central Spanish-style plaza. This unique and
flourishing downtown plaza remains one of the few examples of
early California town planning in existence today. Historic
homes and quaint storefronts retain the flavor of Healdsburg's
citizens of Healdsburg enjoy an unsurpassed quality of life,
surrounded by natural beauty and thriving agriculture.
Healdsburg defines the wine country lifestyle...small town
charm, sophisticated amenities, and neighborly people. Whether
you come for a weekend visit or a month-long retreat, it is
our hope that you feel welcome and enjoy the town as much as

Plaza. Rent a lovely vacation cottage and plan to stay awhile.
Or be a guest at one of the many charming bed and breakfast

tasting and picnicking along the way. Rent a canoe and
discover lovely swimming beaches along the Russian River or
take a ten-minute drive to beautiful Lake Sonoma.
