The Honor Mansion
Defining B&B luxury in a historic wine country mansion.
This luxurious Victorian mansion was built in 1883 and continues to maintain the elegance that has defined it since the day it opened. Five mansion guest rooms feature period furnishings that include stylish divans, sterling silver tea sets and four-poster beds draped with Egyptian cotton linens. The décor in the property's seven suites and one cottage is more eclectic, invoking styles that include East Asian, Hawaiian and country. Most of the suites and cottages boast private hot tubs and fireplaces. All guests have access to the on-site swimming pool and white fabric cabanas that adorn the lush garden. A daily buffet breakfast is complimentary and includes menu items such as Grand Marnier French toast and eggs Benedict. Every afternoon, the B&B offers refreshments, appetizers and a wine hour. In the evenings, proprietors lay out freshly baked cookies and sherry. The Honor Mansion sits a few short blocks from downtown Healdsburg, where guests can stroll the quaint plaza or sample some of the finest eateries in all of California. Wine country lodging simply doesn't get much better than this.
A soothing cup of green tea is always a delight to the senses. Teas like jasmine and matcha carry sweet fragrances that are noticeable yet subtle and a taste that is clean and smooth. With its refreshing taste and aroma, green tea is used to flavor many items, from ice cream to spa products — and now vodka.
