Private, secluded, elusive, hidden- all these descriptors are strikingly applicable to the charming, stylish Duchamp Hotel, seemingly lost from view yet in a fantastic location just a block off the downtown Healdsburg Plaza.

Proprietors Peter Lenz and Pat Lenz, accomplished artist, have made this a personal statement of their ideal of perfect accommodations.
The accommodations are gated; the reveal is stunning:
