About the Honor Mansion and The Innkeepers
The Honor Mansion is not just the only AAA 4 diamond property in Healdsburg, but has been awarded this prestigious honor 13 consecutive years. The Honor Mansion is located in the beautiful Sonoma Wine Country of California. The Honor Mansion is an intimate resort with thirteen, unique, luxurious rooms spread over a four acre property. Registered guests enjoy a full gourmet breakfast buffet each morning in the dining room and after a day of exploring wine country, enjoy wine and appetizers every afternoon and a plethora of amenities the guest rooms and property offers. While the beautiful wine country offers endless possibilities of activities, don’t forget to save some time to spend on the property to enjoy the lap pool, competition croquet and bocce ball courts, PGA putting green, tennis, basketball and spa services! Are all those games leaving you hungry? Help yourself to the endless cookies, fruit, candy, coffee or soda always available in and around the property.
The Honor Mansion is less than a mile from downtown, just a short walk. Because of this our four acres can seem like a peaceful oasis, away from the hustle and bustle of the Square, but close enough to easily walk into the square for wine tasting, shopping, and dining at the numerous award winning restaurants. Due to our quiet location, the fact that our licensing prohibits children under the age of 16 on the property, and our long list of complimentary amenities, you can rest assured that your stay at the Honor Mansion will be restful and rejuvenating, the perfect escape.
THE HONOR MANSION: A DREAM REALIZED
When Steve and Cathi Fowler relocated their family to Healdsburg, California in the 1990's, they were excited and optimistic about their carefully planned future. With three beautiful children and Steve's successful career as a corporate executive, the Fowlers were well on their way to living the American dream. They soon realized that their dream would become increasingly complicated, yet even more enriching than they had ever imagined.
While Steve's job at Nestlé took them around the country, their family grew at a steady pace. The Fowlers eventually settled in northern California, quite close to where their lives began together. Over many years, Steve and Cathi traveled for business and pleasure. Experiences at numerous hotels shaped their high standards for luxury, service, and privacy. Upon entertaining the idea of opening a lodging property, they resolved to incorporate the very things they appreciated in their stays: a high level of service, luxurious linens, great food and world-class hospitality.
"We told our realtor to keep her ears open for possibilities, and two days later she called us about the mansion." Skeptical that anything would materialize so quickly, the Fowlers went to view the property and immediately fell in love. After purchasing the property, they proceeded with renovations that left them, their contractor, and the local community shaking their heads in disbelief. Everything was taken out and redone. After a whirlwind of 6 months of renovations, the Honor Mansion opened for business. Gradually, the Honor Mansion has expanded from its original 2 rooms that it began with, the Fowlers continuously expanding their dream and making it a reality.
Now, the property boasts thirteen exquisite rooms and suites complete with pristine private baths, feather beds, European linens, Egyptian towels, imported toiletries, fresh flowers, and various other comforts. Amenities offered by the Honor Mansion include afternoon refreshments, twenty-four hour Espresso/Cappuccino services, regulation croquet lawn, PGA designed putting green, tournament bocce ball court, tennis, basketball, inviting common rooms, concierge services, personal voicemail, evening sherry, and an endless supply of cookies and tea biscuits. Breakfast, which includes fruit dishes and entrees such as Honor Mansion Breakfast Strata or Honor Mansion Eggs Benedict is a culinary delight and is served “buffet style” in the Dining Room.
"We stayed at the Honor Mansion for the first part of our honeymoon and I'm so glad I chose this place!! I expected a very nice experience, but this place really pulled out all the stops." A guest, tripadvisor.com
