There’s no place like Sonoma County. This world-class wine-growing region is a truly magical destination, boasting sun-soaked vineyards and a unique atmosphere that’s unmistakably Northern Californian. And that’s exactly what made Mark and Marie Luzaich, who grew up here, decide to stay – as well as to open the The Duchamp. The all-suite Healdsburg property embraces the low-key yet high-end feel of the region, inviting you to swim some leisurely laps in a 50-ft. pool, or snuggle up in an oversized bathrobe.
With the chorus of birds who live in its olive trees and an interesting selection of thought-provoking artworks to admire, this base invites you to restore and rejuvenate. Start the morning over breakfast in the lobby, and then decide how to spend your day. The hotel is perfectly situated for getting to know the attractions: The famous local plaza is a two-minute walk, with plenty of galleries and restaurants also in the vicinity. And to really help you squeeze the most out of your grape escape, the Luzaichs have partnered with Getaway Adventures to offer you discounted biking tours, and Lambert Bridge Winery to offer you complimentary wine tastings.
Your Private suite is clean, contemporary, inspired by Europe and the surrounding Golden State. Sleep on a California king bed, dressed in high-end linens; relax on a furnished private terrace; and enjoy the blissful silence – there are just six other suites on the premises.
Set in Sonoma wine country, this hotel puts you at the intersection of three wine-producing valleys – the Russian River, Alexander and Dry Creek – featuring some of the country’s finest wineries and vineyards. You’re also just a block and a half from the town square, including boutique shops, fine dining and tasting rooms. To the east are the Mayacama Mountains, and to the west is the Pacific, while your choice of scenery also includes Old Faithful, Calistoga’s petrified forest and Northern California’s famous redwoods.
How to Get There
Can’t speak to the quality of the hotel b/c we weren’t able to visit due to a nearby fire, but when we tried to reschedule due to safety concerns we were fiercely challenged - see review (AS.) on Yelp
My husband and I were on a vacation to CA from NC. We were in Healdsburg only one night but I wish we had planned to stay longer. The Duchamp was absolutely perfect for us. Anne at the front desk was so sweet and helpful and I loved the individual cottages. They were clean, modern, and a perfect quiet escape. We had so many plans for our trip that we were rushed but I can’t wait to come back, slow down, and spend more time in this lovely town. We will definitely plan to stay at The Duchamp.
We found The DuChamp quite by accident through American Express. This was one of the most surprisingly pleasant experiences we have ever had in many years of travels. There are only 6 bungalow style rooms, surrounding a sun-drenched 50 ft lap pool. The property is tucked away in the midst of the lovely town of Healdsburg, and it is within walking distance of a number of first-class restaurants (try Baci, we loved it), wine tasting rooms, shops, even the neat park in the center of town. The room is spacious, with a large en-suite bathroom, a mini-fridge, espresso maker, and a very comfortable king bed. The property is well-maintained in a comfortable but relaxed
way. The olive trees are such a nice touch. Yvonne welcomed us and was so helpful with getting us set up, and giving us great ideas and information about things to do. Our only regret was that because of our schedule, we could not stay longer. We WILL be back again. Please note - this is not for a family vacation. This is the place you want to go to get away from the little darlings. You deserve it, take a break, leave the kids with the in-laws or the grandparents and treat yourself. If you are a couple seeking some quiet time together with no distractions other than deciding where to eat and drink without any pretensions, you will enjoy yourselves here. By the way, if you have never been to Healdsburg, it is just lovely, and if you are fortunate enough to go when the town has music playing in the plaza on a clear night, you will not forget it. We would come back again in a heartbeat.
