Healdsburg House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8, 2 miles from town square

Fitch Mountain Lookout is a fantastic 2000 square foot vacation home perched on the south side (the sunny side!) of Fitch Mountain in Healdsburg. We have a full kitchen, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a double-sized living room, a dining room, an office area, and two decks. Enjoy outdoor dining on the main deck beside the kitchen, or relax in the hot tub on the second deck. All rooms have spectacular views over the Russian River valley. We frequently see deer, eagles, and osprey from the deck. We are 2 miles (5 minute drive) from the Healdsburg town square. We are a few minutes walk to the river and a semi-private beach for swimming.

Living Room and Kitchen:

The double-sized living room features a 12-foot picture window that provides a spectacular view of the valley. The living room has cathedral ceilings, a gas fireplace, and ample room for relaxing and entertaining. We provide a widescreen TV with basic cable, a home theater surround sound system, and a DVD/MP3/CD player. You can connect your MP3 player or laptop player directly to the home theater system for great sounding music. Warm by the fire on one of the two leather LA-Z-BOY recliners or enjoy the view from the sofa in front of the large picture window.

The fully-equipped kitchen and dining room adjoin the living room to create a wonderfully bright and open space for entertaining. French doors lead from the kitchen onto the upper deck which has a large gas BBQ and dining furniture for 8 people.

3 Bedrooms, Futon, Two Decks, and Hot tub: Master bedroom:

The large, bright master bedroom is perched above the living room. It has cathedral ceilings and a stunning valley-view bay window that serves as the headboard to the pillow-top bed. It also has two comfortable armchairs for reading, and a writing desk. Green Room: This comfortable room has a double bed with a pillow-top mattress. Wake up to the valley view and step through the patio doors onto the lower deck. Leaf Room: This inviting suite has a charming platform bed. Relax with a book on the sofa or step through the sliding doors onto the lower deck. Lower Deck: You’ll love the lower deck with it's hot tub, swing, breakfast table, and views of the valley. Deer regularly walk right past this deck. The deck is directly accessible from the lower bedrooms. Upper Deck: Access the upper deck from both the kitchen and the living room. The upper deck includes a gas BBQ, patio tables, and comfortable chairs.

Office, Laundry, Broadband WiFi, Beach Access:

Office: The spacious home office has a large desk, broadband WiFi internet access and a guest library.

Beach Access: The beach that you can see from the house is accessed by a 5-minute walk along the road. A second beach is a 10-15 minute walk along the road. The current runs from the far beach back to the near beach - perfect for floating back to the house in an inner tube!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Merry Christmas! What a great home to spend our Christmas in. We friends were away from family, but made ourselves at home for a wonderful Christmas meal. We travelled from Healdsburg to Medicino to Santa Rosa, and tried wines in Anderson Valley, the Russian River and Dry Creek areas. We laughed a lot, and credit that to our comfort in your house. Thanks.

Fitch Mountain Lookout - Russian River

  • 5 of 5
This was a great long weekend get away! The house is spacious with a big kitchen and great picture window in the living room. We had kids with us and it was a lot of fun for all of us. Access to the private beach made it all the more perfect.

We would love to stay again!

Great place for relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family enjoyed our stay over the Thanksgiving holiday very much. The house is exactly as described and pictured on this website - specious, clean, convenient, nicely decorated with beautiful photographs, with AMAZING views. I would definitely recommend it to my friends and even might be able to return next year!

Remote, Relaxing and the Russian River

  • 5 of 5
My family of 8 adults enjoyed a much needed vacation at this wonderful location in Healdsburg. The FML's stunning views and comforts made us want to stay and really enjoy this vacation home. We loved the house, the town and we will definitely return! Thank you Steve!!!!

Owner's Response: Lilly,

Thank you very much for taking the time to review my home, and I hope you have the opportunity to return for another visit. For anyone reading this review, Lilly described Fitch Mountain Lookout as 'remote'. I would just like to mention that, while my home is in a beautiful rural setting with views over the Russian River Valley, my home is only 2 miles (5 minute drive) from the Healdsburg town square.

Best,
Stephen.

Nice home with lots of room

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed here in March and I thought I had written a review then but must not have. We had another couple with us and the home gave us all enough room to do different things and not be in each others space. We have had other VRBO's that while having three bedrooms dont provide this much space. Rental was very clean and well maintained and the owner even emailed me after the rental to confirm that the cleaning crew had left the house clean for our arrival.

Beautiful Getaway on the Russian River

  • 5 of 5
Spent my birthday weekend at FML and it was a stupendous time!! The location was perfect. The entire weekend was spent on the river, barbequing, relaxing in the hot tub, and playing boardgames. Steve was quick to reply to all inquiries and the housekeeping team was very accommodating. Thank you very much! Can't wait to return!

a little funky

  • 3 of 5
Pros: Nice views, nice main floor living room view window, close to town, isolated. Good kitchen/grill.
Cons: both bathrooms next to each other on lowest level, no forced air central heating...see comments about oil space heaters that blow fuses, toilet overflowed with minimal challenge, gas heater in office on a timer(?), if you are in the master bedroom(upstairs) you have to walk 2 flights of interesting stairs to go to the bathroom(s).2 lower bedrooms are so small that the beds are against a wall to make room to move. Beach isn't as accessible as it looks. the pictures are too good.

Overall, not a bad place to stay, but isn't as nice as presented.

Owner's Response: David,

Thank you for reviewing my home. I always appreciate all feedback from guests, and I am always striving to improve the quality of my home and the comfort of my guests.

I am sorry that this guest had difficulty with the space heaters. The instructions attached to the space heaters describe how to set them. Unfortunately, if the instructions are not followed, the breaker may trip. I am pleased to say that the office heater control is now on a regular thermostat. (Update: In May 2013 the bedroom wiring was upgraded in order to prevent the heaters from tripping the breaker).

I would also like to clear up any confusion about the downstairs bedrooms. The second and third bedrooms are exactly as shown in the photographs. One bedroom has a double bed. The other bedroom has a queen bed. The queen bed is a platform bed which is an architectural feature of the room. Platform beds are, by design, built against the wall.

I was unfortunately unable to reproduce the issues with the toilet reported by this guest. In 5 years of operating my home as a vacation rental, no past guest has ever reported that the toilet overflowed, my maintenance man could not get the toilet to overflow, and no subsequent guest has reported a toilet overflow. I would also like to mention that my maintenance and cleaning staff are located close to the house and are available at ANY TIME during a guest stay to handle ANY questions or inconveniences that may arise, no matter how minor! My guest package includes the maintenance and cleaning staff 24/7 contact number. I am saddened that this guest did not contact me during their stay to report a troublesome toilet. I want all my guests to relax, enjoy their visit, and never hesitate to contact me if something is amiss.

Finally, I am very sorry to hear that my home did not meet this guest's expectations based on the pictures online. Most guests tell me that my home is nicer than shown online. The main level is very spacious with high ceilings and an interesting architectural quality that is difficult to capture in photographs. I actually need to update the pictures of the main living area. The living room now has new sofas, tables, chairs, sideboard, and a flat screen TV. I have many guests that return year after year because they tell me they have simply fallen in love with my home!

Semi-private on Russian River

We are in Healdsburg, 2 miles from the town square (5 min drive, 40 min walk) and one street back (few minutes walk on the street) from a semi-private beach on the Russian River. Healdsburg is 65 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge and is the center of Sonoma County wine country. The town itself is surrounded by the Russian River Valley, the Dry Creek Valley, and the Alexander Valley appellations. It is the wine country destination closest to the coast (only 45 minutes) and is a great base for hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, antiquing, golfing, or exploring. Tour the county back roads and discover our specialty Sonoma County wineries. Discover that San Francisco, the Napa Valley, Mendocino County, the Redwood Empire, and the North Coast are all day trips from our home.
