About Barbara

Healdsburg ~ what a great place to live and to visit. Our 25 acre farm property has our home, 3 affordable vacation homes & 20 acres of vineyards. Walt retired and reinvented himself as a grape grower. We sell grapes to Rodney Strong and Ledson wineries & make family zin. Barbara gave seminars for K-6 teachers nationally and developed over 100 products for educational publishers. We love the wine country lifestyle which, for us, includes growing grapes, having guests stay here and living in the friendly wine country town of Healdsburg. What a beautiful place to wake up every morning ~ life is good.

Barbara purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Barbara chose Healdsburg

When we bought our run down farm property and sold our lovely home nearby, our children thought we lost our minds. Now they 'get it' and say we had vision. We knew we could add charm to the compound of homes on the property, live in one and rent the other 3 to visitors. And, we had 20 acres of empty land that became our vineyard. We added landscaping and our wine country dreams came true. It is gorgeous, a prime location just a 4 minute drive to town...and truly a wonderful place for us to live and people to visit. Many do not want to leave because they fall in love with Healdsburg. We did!

What makes this cottage unique

Location is everything when you are on vacation--we are 1 & 1/2 miles to the Plaza -- you can walk or drive 4 minutes. Having wonderful restaurants, shops, and 80+ wineries all closeby makes for plenty of things to enjoy. Plus the Russian River is an 1/2 mile away -- the swim beach and canoe trips add fun to summertime. Healdsburg is a friendly town for everyone to enjoy. Don't miss the Tuesday night free concerts in the Plaza in summertime. Great golf is nearby--we like the public course in Windsor + others in the area. Great weather & lots to do makes this a great place to live and visit. When we travel, return home and step inside the gate we always say 'Wow...we get to live HERE!' Thankfully, there's Healdsburg.

Wonderful Cottage in the Heart of Wine Country

  • 5 of 5
This adorable cottage captured my heart when I first saw it online. I found it to be exactly as advertised. It was a perfect getaway for my husband and I, right in the middle of wine country. The owners were very thoughtful and we found a chilled bottle of wine in the fridge. They always had a smile and a wave. The cottage is very private. The view from the kitchen window and decks is amazing. If I had to make one small criticism it would be of the size of the bathroom. My husband is 6'2" and he felt a little cramped in there. Other than that, we had an amazing stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying in our charming Cottage...our location and views are hard to beat! We've lived here for 20-some years and never tire of the views...all year round! Even the bathroom has a great view out the tiny window ... but, you are right...the bathroom in the Cottage is tiny. We are unable to enlarge the building and the Cottage doesn't have the room within to enlarge the bathroom. Glad you enjoyed the area and your stay ~

Vow Renewal

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I wanted to renew our vows and because we got married in the wine country decided that a vineyard would be the perfect place to do that. Because we were alone we wanted something romantic and special. Well not only was this cottage that but so much more. From the moment we arrived until the next day under that amazing oak tree, we felt like this was the place we were supposed to be at. The cottage and the owners were more than we could have imagined. The owners knew how important this was and quietly turned on all the sparkling lights before and disappeared before we knew it. The pictures taken by a professional photographer will always capture the moment but this place has captured our hearts! We will be back!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are always looking for the perfect accommodation while traveling; close enough to all the attractions of the area but just far enough to have some privacy. The Wine Country Cottage was all that and more! As all reviewers have noted, it is gorgeous. The gardens are lush, the surrounding vineyards so colorful, and the buildings on the property add to the magical environment. The tiny cottage was perfect for our two night stay, providing us all we needed, from kitchen supplies, comfortable bed, grilling on the deck, and all the information needed about the surrounding area. And, we were the only guests on the property at the time adding to a very private getaway.
We too, would love to return with friends to share the magic of the Wine Country Cottage.
There is never a reason to stay in a hotel when you have places like this, hosted by folks that know how to make you feel comfortable!

Sonoma Romantic Vineyard

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent three wonderful days at this resort in the cottage. We had the privalage of being part of one of the wine harvests and toasting with Walt under a harvest moon. I could have stayed on the patio porch overlooking the beauty of the vineyard for days. This property is a must stay for anyone interested in experiancing a true wine country visit. Five stars.

Owner's Response: Great ~ you lucked out being here when the Zinfandel harvest was happening. We never know ahead of time exactly when grapes will be harvested...it's up to Mother Nature and the wine maker saying our grapes are ready to harvest. It's all about the sugar level (brix) and the taste of the grapes.
Music to our ears that you so enjoyed your stay.
Thank you for choosing our Wine Country Cottage,

Another Wonderful Visit to Our Favorite Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This was our third time staying in this lovely wine country cottage and we've already booked again for next year. After a day of bicycling and visiting wineries we just love coming home to the peace and quiet of this charming cottage. The views are spectacular and the gardens are so beautiful. The zinnias are taller than I am! Some evenings we just enjoyed our dinner right there on the deck overlooking the vineyards. The cottage is comfortable and cozy and everything you need is supplied. If we decide to go into Healdsburg for dinner it's just a five minute drive. In the morning we hop on our bikes and ride into town for coffee before our ride on West Dry Creek Road. (the best cycling road we've ever been on) We had an amazing lunch at Bistro Ralph, so good that we went back the next day for dinner. There are so many good restaurants in Healdsburg it's hard to decide but our other favorites are Charcuterie, Scopa and Barn Diva. There are two terrific bookstores in town on the plaza, we think that's almost a miracle since there are so few bookstores any more. We can't wait for our next visit.

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the country cottage. It was romantic, peaceful and the grounds were beautiful. The owners take great pride in the entire property. The pictures don't do it justice. It is very close to Healdsburg which is such a great town with wonderful food and awesome tasting rooms. I hope we can come back soon. Just hope to bring a bigger group so we can rent one of the larger homes on the property! Thank you!

Looking forward to seeing you here again...Barbara & Walt
