What a terrific place this was to stay over the holidays! Our family of 10 enjoyed every moment in this beautiful elegantly rustic cabin right on the river. The owners even left up holiday lights and a Christmas tree which made it so festive for us. We've rented many places on VRBO and this one ranks among the very best.
The beds were incredibly comfortable, and I'm a real stickler for good beds and bedding. Indoor activities were important as it was too chilly outside to play in the river, so the ping pong table got lots of use. The kitchen was spacious with a great selection of pots and pans for all the chefs, and the dining table handles a large group perfectly.
The location couldn't be better to visit nearby wineries and charming Healdsburg, all within a very short drive. Because the cabin is on the north side of Fitch Mountain, it doesn't get much sun in wintertime which makes me think it'd be ideal in the hot summer months with the river right there to swim in and cool off.
For us, being in the gorgeous redwoods, above the river, sitting in that glorious hot tub with a glass of wine and watching all the beautiful birds passing through the river corridor was pure heaven! We will definitely come back in summer--those kayaks looked so tempting!
Thank you for a marvelous stay and a perfect way to end 2014!
