PRIVATE WINE COUNTRY RETREAT WITH VIEWS, LARGE DECK & SPA

Healdsburg House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Contact Owners directly for best weekly rates.

Immerse yourself in the beauty of Sonoma County at Arbor & Vine, a private 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath home set on an acre of trees and gardens. Ideally located between Sebastopol and Healdsburg in the heart of 'The Golden Triangle,' you're surrounded by world-class wineries (and restaurants) inc. DeLoach, Kendall-Jackson, Rodney Strong, Korbel, Iron Horse and many more. Even the journey is a joy -- About 20 minutes south of Healdsburg, you'll wind your way down a country road lush with vineyards and apple orchards to a quiet country lane...serene yet minutes away from top-rated fine dining and shopping.

Ready-made for relaxation, romance and rejuvenation, Arbor & Vine greets you with fantastic views of vineyards and rolling hills beyond through full-length windows and glass doors that run the entire length of the open living area onto the huge deck. You've landed in your own private wine-country paradise.

The living room is cozy and stylish with designer furnishings, tasteful appointments and wood-burning stove! The house also is equipped with state-of-the-art technology including flat-screen TV w/ HDMI, DVD/CD, wireless internet access as well as good old fashioned puzzles, books and magazines to enjoy.

The gourmet kitchen, with it rich cherrywood cabinets and table, has stainless steel appliances including a new Wolf gas range and oven, full-sized fridge, microwave and dishwasher. Windows on both sides make it a delightful place to prepare meals and a joy to cook in. Why not enjoy Sonoma's fresh local produce and gourmet fare and save money eating in!

The bedrooms feature luxuriously comfortable beds and bedding. The master bedroom is quite large with a king bed, private bath with walk-in shower, cable TV, and a very large sitting area with a comfy chaise lounge. Surrounded by windows, it's the perfect spot to curl up with a book. The cozy second bedroom with queen bed also looks out on the trees for great bird-watching! The guest bath is completely new with sumptuous tile, lighting and fixtures, and, most importantly, a deep soaking tub.

The deck is a true extension of the house and makes a perfect spot to enjoy wine and meals and watch the hot air balloons drift by. There is also a multi-jet hot-tub perfect for relaxation any time of the year.

The one-acre property is abundant with lavender, rosemary and butterfly bushes, birches, redwoods, pines and firs, apple, plum, pear and persimmon trees, and hedges thick with blackberries. This is a wonderful base from which to explore the beauty of the Wine Country any time of the year! *PLease note - there is a minimum stay of 4 nights in summer and fall.

Special Notes:

*Short drive to historic Healdsburg Town Square, Sebastopol, Graton, Forestville and wonderful boutiques, restaurants, antique shops, theaters, bistros, bakeries, farmer's markets, wine tasting rooms and more. It's about 25 minutes to the coastal highway of Hwy that offer side trips to Point Reyes, Bodega Bay, Jenner.

*More than 60 wineries within 10 miles of the property in 3 world class wine growing regions: Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley

*Local Driving Destinations & Airports: 30 minutes to Napa Valley (Calistoga); 20 minutes to Lake Sonoma; 40 minutes to Pacific Ocean; 15 minutes to River Rock Casino gambling; 65 miles to downtown San Francisco; 2 hrs. drive time from San Francisco and Oakland International Airports; 15 minutes to Sonoma County Airport, currently serving Los Angeles and Seattle via Horizon Air.

Our New Getaway...What a Find!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 11, 2012
  • Stayed: Dec 2011
The owners were very nice, thorough and easy to work with in helping us arrange our Christmas stay with our daughter and son-in-law (who are foodies and love good wine - notes about their fun day below).

Nicely done! The pictures of the property do not convey how nice this place really is. Roomy, yet cozy. We loved the huge master bedroom with desks and sitting area. The bathrooms were very up-to-date and large. Decor was warm and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of nice counterspace for putting together a large holiday dinner. There is also a very nice collection of books, games and puzzles. All rooms face out to a huge deck with a hot tub that seats 4, gas bbq and patio set. We enjoyed coffee in the morning while watching the sunrise over large grassy yard (that our dog loved) and vineyard just beyond it. This is an amazing getaway and if we tell more, you just might rent it out from under us the next time we want to go!

Cons:
Gas Thermador oven temp sensor light dim, owner provided oven thermometer.

Hard water leaves glasses spotted - hand wash if it bugs you.

Hidabed frame sags - nice mattress more comfortable on the floor.

Fun Day:
Oakville Grocery for lunch. enjoyed sandwich bar, they also have good pastas and a great cheese/charcuterie section. Order a glass of wine at the coffee/wine bar (pairings are suggested with some lunches) and enjoy it with your lunch on their outdoor patio. It was a gorgeous day and the patio looks out on to the park.

5 minute drive from Oakville Grocery to Alderbrook Winery - Tasting room is rustic and open, and Benjamin, is very knowledgeable both about the wines they make and the area in general. This winery specializes in Zinfandels, though everything we tasted was really good (we joined the club!). Alderbrook is also the home of Terlato wines (via merger), also quite delicious and mixed in to the tasting menu. Like Simi, they have some good, flexible wine club choices, and the wine is great for the price.

Simi Winery easy drive from Alderbrook. The tasting room is big and has lots of cute little knicky-knacky things for sale. We’re wine club members, so we got to taste through a fair amount of good wines

Cap the day off at Francis Ford Coppola Winery. The property contains almost a mini-museum of memorabilia from Coppola movies and some cute items for sale in addition to the wine. Not great for wine tasting - too packed, but the estate is huge and beautiful.
Owner's Response: Thanks Katy! We hope you do come back many, many times. All the seasons are different and offer different opportunities to enjoy the beauty of Sonoma. Thanks for all the great ideas for things to do and for your lovely review.

Great Wine Country Get Away

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 3, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
Wonderful house with great views in the wine country. Just far enough away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to get to everything you need or want. Great wineries abound with wonderful restaurants or cook at home with a great kitchen. This is the perfect spot for all your wine country get away!
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: Thanks Carol. We never realized until after we bought the house what an ideal location it is for so many reasons and we hear that a lot from our guests. Thank you for staying and please come back again.

We had a fantastic time at this house. The place was perfect for two couples. The weather was great and we were able to enjoy some time on the deck. The location was perfect for wine tasting and exploring. Will definitely recommend this to our friends.

2nd stay here - it works for us!

We live about 1.5 hours away and know the area very well - this is ideally located for what we enjoy about this part of Sonoma County ... great food/wine and quiet relaxation. We love Backyard restaurant in Forestville, Willowwood and Underwood in Graton, Willie's Wine Bar in Santa Rosa, several of the excellent spots in Healdsburg. Wine tasting, wonderful meal, hot tub before bed and hopping into the comfortable beds for a LONG night's sleep in a clean, quiet country setting is what we love about this house. It's a country property so rural streets, country setting and an occasional sound of the neighbor's goat is expected. We've stayed twice and will return again. Too many great local wineries to name but if you love great pinot noir, you're in the middle of pinot heaven. Sonoma County is very spread out unlike Napa ... there's no single spot better situated for us - this property is close west side wineries, sebastopol, healdsburg and graton - we usually head to the coast for a meal at the River's end also. We always eat out so can't say anything about the kitchen other than that it looks nice, seems well stocked and that the coffee maker fridge and microwave all work :-)
Owner's Response: Thanks Rob & Laurie,
We're so happy you will think of this as your "go-to" Sonoma home -away-from-home. Wed love to have you come back many, many times!

Totally enjoyed this place

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 1, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
We really loved this home and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to unwind in the Wine Country. First of all, the location could not have been better. It felt like we were really in the country and yet we were able to get to many of our favorite wineries easily and explored several new ones close by as well. And when we did want to just kick back there was the large deck to hang out on. Not to mention the hot tub!
We had everything we needed to prepare and enjoy meals. The beds were comfortable, the grounds lovely, and the owners have a great eye for decor – it was eclectic and smart (love the rustic yard art) – a cut above many other vacation homes we’ve stayed in. Now we just have to figure out when we can get back there again!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying and enjoying our home. Please think of it as your place to stay for all your future wine tasting jaunts. And yes, come back & tell friends!
So glad you loved the farm yard art too!
