A lovely new bolthole in North Sonoma wine country

Located in the heart of California’s North Sonoma wine country, Hotel Healdsburg stands on a historic town square, minutes from some of the world’s best vineyards. This summer it will be joined by another extraordinary Sonoma property, Harmon Guest House, a locally minded accommodation where sustainability and authenticity rule the day. Located just off the historic Healdsburg Plaza in what the locals call SOHE (Southern Healdsburg), the property is surrounded by excellent restaurants, galleries, and one-of-a kind shops.

Better yet, more than 100 world-class wineries and tasting rooms are all in striking distance, not to mention incredible hiking, biking, canoeing, camping, and redwoods. Designed by David Baker and Partners, Harmon Guest House welcomes visitors through a transparent ground-level lobby and into a remarkable glass stairwell. Polished concrete floors and textured walls are softened by reclaimed redwood sun-shading and vine trellises at the street-level windows, while redwood ceilings warm the common spaces and outdoor roof deck.

A series of creative collaborations with local artisans animate the property, grounded in wine country and looking toward the area’s rich creative community, as do original artworks by a range of California artists, including a four-story light sculpture.

With just 39 rooms, the Harmon is a chic retreat that will feel like your own, with custom-curated amenities like a Bluetooth-enabled sound system and a bar cart equipped with locally-crafted spirits. But more than that, Harmon Guest House is a place to gather, perfect for families or groups of friends, that is sure to be a thriving new hub for the vibrant community of North Sonoma.
