Arriving at Healdsburg for a weekend getaway previewing their upcoming Tastemaker weekend which is January 24th – 26th, 2020. Learn more about the upcoming Tastemaker Weekend online here.

Duchamp Hotel Healdsburg

I stayed at Duchamp Hotel which was perfectly located two blocks off the Healdsburg square. Even though it was Winter I was able to take advantage of their gorgeous pool and hot tub with a dip in the hot tub. What a perfect morning activity after my Sunday morning walk with the Healdsburg Running Company.

The hotel has 6 bedroom suites and each suite includes a queen bed and a great living room area (which could also double as a second bed) for a kid or adult guest.

One of the blogger guests who joined us for the Healdsburg weekend getaway was my friend Isabel of Napa Valley Tip.

 

Our first stop was at Mateo’s Restaurant enjoying a cooking class with Chef Mateo.

Post Mateo’s cooking class we enjoyed a quick stop at Harmon Guest House for views from their spectacular roof. Most evenings you can visit for dinner and drinks Tuesday through Friday from 3 – 8pm and Saturday & Sunday 2 – 8 pm.  I have stayed at this fabulous recently opened hotel and it’s fabulous. Read about my stay at Harmon House on the blog here.

After our cooking class at Mateo’s and stop at Harmon Guest House our next step was at Costeaux Bakery for a fabulous cooking class. This is offered for guests during the Tastemaker Weekend and it was beyond fun AND delicious!

Our blogger guests were all smiles heading into Costeaux Bakery for our baking class…

Costeaux Bakery may be the most festive spot in town with carolers singing during the holiday months and the largest assortment of nutcrackers in Healdsburg.

Any weekend trip to Healdsburg includes dinner at Valette Restaurant. Over the years I’ve gotten to know Chef/Owner Dustin Valette and his brother Owner, Aaron Valette and this is one of the most delicious restaurants in town which I love sharing with friends or blogger guests during a Healdsburg getaway.

Sunday’s agenda included a run which is apparently what is a typical Sunday in Healdsburg. Since most of our guests weren’t runners we joined the Healdsburg Running Club for a walk in the vineyards in Healdsburg.

A stop at Journeyman Meat Co. is not complete without a pizza. Most of the pizzas are topped with delicious charcuterie house made by the Journey Man Meat Co.
