The ideal location for a wine country getaway

Montage Healdsburg is located on a staggering 258-acre property, right where Dry Creek Valley, Russian River Valley and Alexander Valley meet. This new resort boasts 130 bungalows and guest suites, all featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive outdoor areas.

The contemporary architecture and décor are the perfect complement to the spectacular views of rolling vineyards and oak groves. There’s no better setting for romance, reconnecting with friends or simply enjoying peaceful solitude.

Thanks to the prime location, guests can easily visit any of Sonoma’s famous wineries, restaurants and more than 50 state parks—but because the property has its own vineyard, spa, , apiaries (overseen by beekeeper Candice Koseba), activities and premium dining, they may never want to leave.

“While the physical build is beautiful and blends seamlessly in the landscape, it’s really our people who make Montage Healdsburg so special, said Allen Highfield, Montage Healdsburg General Manager. “We have some of the very best in the hospitality industry working with us – and who are helping those new to the field find their footing with grace and patience.” The team members I met love what they do and that excitement shows through every guest interaction – whether it’s simply greeting someone upon arrival, placing the next course in front of the guest at one of their restaurants or curating a full itinerary.

A true Sonoma County spa experience

Whether you book a treatment at the Spa Montage Healdsburg or simply relax poolside, you’ll walk away from your trip feeling transformed. The luxury spa amenities are elevated 20 feet above the grapevines to offer a private, peaceful experience like no other.

Keep up with your fitness routine by signing up for a yoga class on the Vineyard Lawn. The lush, serene natural location is the perfect place to find inner peace—and to get ready for another day taking in all the area has to offer.

You won’t want to miss the chance to make a splash, either. Sonoma County’s warm, sunny afternoons are ideal for swimming in the Montage Healdsburg’s two private pools. For a true five-star experience, enjoy a private cabana and poolside dining throughout your stay.

Dining for every palate

Start your visit off in the Scout Field Bar, which boasts handcrafted cocktails, French-inspired bites, live music, a cozy fireplace and, of course, plenty of local Sonoma County wine.

Sonoma’s famous wines are one of its biggest draws—except perhaps the local cuisine. Montage Healdsburg’s main dining attraction is Hazel Hill, an inviting farmhouse-chic jewel of a restaurant featuring locally sourced ingredients, seasonal offerings, an open kitchen,  and al fresco dining options. You’ll love the French-inspired California selections. Don’t forget to enjoy a lazy brunch with plenty of perfectly-paired bubbly!

“I can tell you without a doubt, the food created in Hazel Hill is some of the best I have had at any hotel restaurant. Chef Jason’s signature Saffron Chitarra with Dungeness Crab, fennel and Calabrian Chile is one of my favorites – it is delicious and filling,” said Highfield.  

If Mediterranean food is more to your liking, Hudson Springs Bar and Grill pairs dishes like lamb skewers and gyros with a selection of thoughtfully chosen wine and beer pairings. Finally, for those who need a quick bite, the on-location Healdsburg Country Store offers artisan bites, fresh juices, local wines and a full coffee bar. In-room and private dining is also available.
