Healdsburg House Rental Photos and Description

House/Private Home - 3 Bedrooms + Other - 2.5 Baths - Sleeps 6

The Old River House has an old world charm, with hand-hewn beams and many more classic elements. The three story home has fabulous views and decks on each level overlooking the water. There's an outdoor dining area with views, a Weber gas grill, a river view hot tub, two kayaks, a hammock for year round enjoyment on a covered deck, a game room with games and puzzles, and WiFi high speed internet. The home has romantic river views, and an old-time charm. The knotty pine vaulted great room has soaring ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace and is wonderful gathering place, with comfortable leather sofas circling the fire. There are hand hewn beams, antique hardware, and period construction that give you a enjoyable step back in time. The kitchen is well stocked, and has a breakfast table with fantastic river views. We have games in the game room and a relaxing hammock on the lower covered deck. The home provides a rare opportunity to enjoy the vacation pleasures of a by-gone era, but with all the contemporary upgrades needed to ensure a wonderfully comfortable stay. The three bedrooms have queen size beds and a game room with a comfortable futon bed. All have fine linens.

Activities and Adventure: There are activities to interest all ages & tastes, from winery tours, to hiking, biking, golf, swimming, kayaking, soaking in the hot tub, just relaxing, or watching wildlife from the deck. In town, there's the historic Healdsburg Plaza, with shaded benches and a gazebo.On a covered deck overlooking the river is an inviting hammock, a perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon. For those looking for outdoor adventure and family fun, we offer two kayaks for exploring the river. Or try swimming, fishing from the dock for native wild steelhead and coho salmon, or take a leisurely float trip downstream 45 minutes into Healdsburg. We are located just outside the city limits of Healdsburg, in the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country, & enjoy frontage on the upper Russian River, where the water is clear & the river uncrowded for great family fun & outdoor adventure opportunities.

Nostalgia and Charm: The home is a charming and nostalgic river front summer home built in the 1930's. It retains its original character and charm, and offers an enjoyable step back in time, while carefully providing contemporary amenities and conveniences for a perfectly comfortable stay.

Perfect choice: Location, Togetherness, Relaxation: The perfect location, close in, but seemingly far away. (Incredibly close to everything, but private, serene, and unspoiled. Situated less than a one minute drive from Healdsburg.) The perfect choice for getting away to be together - to bond and reconnect with family and friends. (Spread out over three stories. Find activities to interest every taste and age group, even a trunk full of nostalgic puzzles, games, and toys for children.) The perfect recipe for relaxation, to recharge one's personal batteries. (Try lazing in the year 'round hammock on a covered view deck. Sink into incredibly soft and comfortable leather sofas by the fire. Or, sit and gaze at the diamond-like sparklets dancing where rapids tumble over the rocks.)

About Wine Country Lodges Reservations

Wine Country Lodge's history in Sonoma County started with its founder, Lisa Neisingh. Lisa was raised in Sonoma County, where she enjoyed vacations with her family at their riverfront cabin on Healdsburg’s Fitch Mountain and where she learned to swim with her cousins in the Russian River. Wanting to continue to share similar getaway experiences for additional families and friends, she bought Old River in 2006 as Wine Country Lodges’ third riverfront vacation home. Sharing Healdsburg’s historic riverfront with others has been our goal in creating a relaxing environment conducive to memory making get-togethers. Old River Lodge has been hosting visitors on the river ever since. Old River Lodge is known for its wonderful views, excellent river location and authentic, 'old', river lodge charm. Wine Country Lodges continues in the tradition of welcoming guests and is now owned and managed by Lisa’s children Jared B Pickrell and Jill E. Jensen. Our families enjoy filling these wonderful riverfront homes with comfortable furnishings, relaxing amenities, and providing a choice of many adventurous and leisurely activities for our guests to choose from.

We Look Forward to Welcoming You to Healdsburg’s Riverfront Wine Country.

Wine Country Lodges Reservations purchased this house in 2006

Why Wine Country Lodges Reservations chose Healdsburg

Lisa was searching for a rustic riverfront getaway - the kind she remembered as a child - a place to go with family and friends and leave the cares of the world behind! She wanted it not too fussy so it would have that 'relaxing' feeling and wanted it to be waterfront, with plenty of beautiful views and fun water activities. When Old River became available, Lisa knew it was the perfect property and addition to Wine Country Lodges collection of riverfront vacation homes.

What makes this house unique

The fantastic river view is probably our guests' favorite thing about about the Old River Lodge, but a close second is the spaciousness of the high ceiling in the knotty pine Great Room, and the many quaint features and authentic qualities of the old home. The river views that are enjoyed from nearly every window are simply spectacular!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was exactly what we'd hoped for, providing a desparately needed, comfortable break from our stressed-out lives.



The management was seamless -- all the info we needed, when we needed it; plenty of amenities; and everything well-maintained.



We will definitely look forward to coming back!

Great Family Fun and Very Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5
We were in town for a wedding and I stayed at the house with my brother and his kids as well as my family. Wylie and his staff were extremely professional and accommodating throughout our entire stay and the whole process went off without a hitch. We enjoyed a really fun and relaxing day on the river the day after the wedding where the kids played on the canoes and the adults hung out on the concrete peer. The house was exactly what we thought it was going to be and the location to downtown and all of the wedding festivities was as convenient as advertised. I would highly recommend a stay at The Old River Lodge to anyone who is visiting the area and wants convenient access to downtown Healdsburg while enjoying the beautiful and rustic setting of The Russian River. Thanks again for all of your hospitality and for being so accommodating, Wylie. We really enjoyed our stay at your lovely home...

If you like rustic charm this is the place for you! Clean and comfortable with a beautiful view of the river cannot be beat. We spent our time on the deck in the evening enjoying the fresh air and river. The properties are close together, but the neighors were quiet in the evening. We liked being close to Healdsburgh. Loved the kayaking at the mouth of Russian River in Jenner. We did get a check-in from the property manager. She was friendly and helpful. She even brought us a bottle of wine! The early morning view of the river from the kitchen window was great for viewing for birds and wildlife!

Great views of Russian River

  • 2 of 5
My family and I had a great time at this rustic cabin located right on the Russian river. The views were wonderful, we enjoyed the kyacks and hot tub, and the proximity to Healdsburg was a definite plus. We had some concerns with the grill, but they were reponsive to the problem. All was well until we didn't get our security deposit, which was supposed to be returned to us within 15 days. After 3 weeks of broken promises that our check was in the mail, I finally contacted the Better Business Bureau about our situation, and we then, finally, received our check four days later. Needless to say, this ruined a great family vacation and has left our with a negative feeling for the owners. this is no way to run a business, we would never rent from these folks again!

Wonderful view and stay

  • 3 of 5
My family and I had a great time at this rustic cabin on the Russian River. We enjoyed the hot tub, kayacks, great views and proximity to downtown Healdsburg. We had a few concerns with the grill, but they were responsive in fixing them for us.
The problem came when it was time for our security deposit to be returned. The owners were continually putting us off with promises that the check was in the mail, until after waiting 5 weeks, I contacted the Better Business Bureau about the problem, then we received the check within 4 days? What an awful way to run a business, we would never rent from them again! Hard to believe I had to fight with them for 3 weeks until finally receiving our security deposit.

Rustic charm

  • 5 of 5
I live in the Bay Area and love to take long weekend escapes in wine country. For the longest time I have been trying to find an authentic vintage cottage experience. Well, I finally found it! The living and dining room areas were the best part. We lounged there for hours on the big couches . Also, the place is huge. I recommend it for 2-3 couples who want a relaxing vacation in wine country.

Wonderful Rustic lodge, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
Although the unseasonably cool wet weather marred our recent stay, the spacious, inviting lodge on the Russian River more than made up for it. The lodge is exactly as described, was spotless, and everything fully functional. The place is rustic, but loaded with charm and just enough modern amenities (hot tub, wireless internet). Location is perfect for wineries and quick trips into Healdsburg. Would stay there again in a heartbeat and recommend fully. This is our second time renting from Lisa and both experiences have been exceptional.
