Relax on the porch in the afternoon before heading off to dinner.... as your host serves a light appetizer of cheese and crackers. She also offers a variety of other services.
The Irish Rose Inn is a member of the Wine Country Bed and Breakfasts, B&Bs, Inns of Sonoma County.
The Irish Rose Inn wasn't exactly what we expected, but turned out to be a great value. Things started off a little bumpy when I received a message a few days before arriving asking me to call back and verify my reservation because they may not have room for me. After calling back and informing Chris that we were indeed coming she assured me that our room would be waiting.
When we arrived in Healdsburg we were on a fairly tight schedule. I tried to call Chris to let her know that we would be checking in later, but after receiving no answer decided to head over immediately due to our previous scare. Chris wasn't around but another gentleman pointed us to a cottage and told us to put our things inside. I was a little sketched out by not getting a key and having no way to lock up the cottage, but did as I was asked. I was never really asked for any ID.
The cottage afforded us a great deal of privacy, however there were some issues with water pressure. Additionally I had signed up for the Rose room (which was supposed to have a king sized bed) and didn't realize until we were leaving that we had been placed into the Chateau Margi instead.
Breakfast was good
Bed was smaller than expected and uncomfortable
Water pressure issues
A bit disorganized
Chris was very helpful with the arrangements prior to our arriving for the evening. When we did arrive she was very welcoming, offered us a coupon for wine tasting and showed us to our room. The room and bathroom were well appointed, clean, and comfortable. Her lovely home is nestled among the vineyards in Healdsburg.
We slept well and it was very quiet. In the morning Chris and her husband prepared a great breakfast for all the guests. I would definitely recommend the Irish Rose Inn.
Had a great stay with Chris. The inn is immaculate, welcoming and so cozy. Wish we had another day or 3 to enjoy the place. The price and location cannot be beat in the area!
Chris and Lenny were great hosts! They have the most beautiful spot for a b&b in the middle of Sonoma Wine Country on Dry Creek Rd. My gf and I capped off a great weekend with a stay at the Irish Rose Inn. We got along well with the other guests and ended up sharing wine with them on the front porch. Chris was very knowledgable of the surrounding area and had many good restaurant and winery recommendations.
The room was large and clean, with a very comfortable King sized bed and private bathroom. Lenny cooked us a hearty breakfast in the morning and afterwards we visited with Daisy the potbellied pig outside.
Coming here felt like going to stay with family. Highly recommended!
