About Wine Country Lodges Reservations

Wine Country Lodge's owner, Lisa Neisingh, was raised in Sonoma County, where she enjoyed vacations with her family at a summer home near Occidental. Wanting to share similar getaway experiences with her children and others, she bought Firefly Lodge in 2003, in the vicinity of her great grandparents' home at Healdsburg's historic river resort, Camp Rose. Soon after, Lisa, she bought three, additional, nearby riverfront homes, and has been inviting guests ever since. The homes are elegant, rustic residences, that are both casual and eye appealing. Each home comfortably accommodates guests seeking a place to gather for a memorable retreats with family and friends. The very restful, natural settings offer guests a welcome respite from urban life. Each home enjoys an incredibly beautiful and unspoiled natural environment. Lisa enjoys filling these wonderful riverfront settings with comfortable furnishings, beautiful amenities, and the opportunity to enjoy a choice of many adventurous and leisurly activities, to the delight of guests.

Wine Country Lodges Reservations purchased this house in 2003

Why Wine Country Lodges Reservations chose Healdsburg

I was searching for a rustic riverfront getaway - the kind I remembered as a child - a place o go with family and friends and leave the cares of the world behind! I wanted it not too fussy so it would have that 'relaxing' feeling. I wanted it to be waterfront, with plenty of beautiful views and fun water activities. I wanted it to have a big, covered deck, and plenty of room around the table. I looked for a LONG time, and when I finally found Firefly, I felt, 'This is it!', and the family fun began!

What makes this house unique

The covered, river view deck is perfect for year 'round outdoor enjoyment and dining. The views from the deck are wonderful, and the water is so close you can see the fish swimming. The river is slower and more lake-like in this location, making it a perfect spot for summertime fun. In the winter the warm glow of the river rock fireplace, the comfort of the soft leather sofas, and the fantastic views of the rushing river make this a wonderful choice

for a cozy winter getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you to our guests for all of their glowing comments.

We are so thrilled that such wonderful times were had by all, and that we were able to play a part in making that happen. We enjoyed working with all of you and hope you'll return again, soon!



Sincerely,



Jill Jensen

Lovely setting on the Russian River!

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed our stay at Firefly Lodge! What a perfect setting right on the Russian River with a great view from the deck to see salmon swimming in the river below. The lodge felt like a home away from and had all the amenities you would need and more! We really enjoyed our stay and will be back, thank you Firefly Lodge!

Wonderful Accommodations

A beautiful home and an amazing home make for an extremely relaxing weekend. Perfect for a weekend getaway if you live in the Bay Area. Jared & Alexandra, who manage the property, could not have been more accommodating or kind. I would recommend to anyone!

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
My girl friends and I stayed at fire fly lodge with our daughters for our yearly girls and mom trip. I couldn't have picked a better place! Our girls spent the whole day going up and down the river in the canoes and floats that where there for us to use while the ladies and I sat in the beach chairs playing cards and drinking wine. The house was beautiful and clean. The beds were great with nice linens. We have decided that there isn't a better place to go, its so close to the bay area why drive for hours when you can stay at Fire Fly lodge!

We celebrated my dad's 78th birthday and Mother's Day here. Wonderful home right on the river. We watched kayaks and canoes go down the river while enjoying their great deck. We played ping pong. Comfortable for adults and kids. Great place!

Serene views, clean house

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here with a group of friends--everyone appreciated the house, especially the decks where we sat and watched the river go by. Beds were clean and comfortable. We only stayed one night and didn't get to enjoy the kayaks or the hot tub, unfortunately. Convenient to downtown. We would absolutely stay here again on future trips to Healdsburg.
