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 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. We are located in a beautiful rural neighborhood and frequently see deer, eagles, and osprey from the decks.
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.

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.
My wife and I, our 20-something son and daughter, another friend and our teenage daughter stayed at this great place over a long holiday weekend following Christmas. It was a great relaxing weekend filled with wine tasting, beer tasting, some great home-cooked gourmet meals and a liberal use of the hot tub. It was the perfect size place for both togetherness and to spread out a bit. The location and fabulous views couldn't be better. We will come again!
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!
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!
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!!!!
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.
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!
Wine Tasting, tubing, cycling, swimming, fishing, golfing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking .... You name it.
