Tucked away in a lovely redwood grove on the banks of the Russian River in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country, Redwood Tree House is one of California's most enchanting vacation rental lodging experiences. The charming 3-bedroom/2 bath home offers many unique charms and amenities, offering guests the option of renting just the Main House or adding 'La Casita' guest cottage for extra privacy and comfort.
Located only 3 miles from Healdsburg's historic and vibrant Town Square, it's the perfect vacation retreat for 2-3 couples or families. Here guests can relax and enjoy the lovely and private riverside setting, complemented by attractive furnishings, artwork and creative accents, courtesy of the interior designer owners.
From the home's spacious wraparound deck, guests enjoy sweeping unobstructed views up and down the Russian River. A flagstone patio with teak furniture offers a separate space for dining, reading and river gazing. A romantic HOT TUB hidden in a secluded fern grotto is the perfect spot to watch the moon rise over the river.
Redwood Tree House takes its name from the stately California redwoods that flank the home. One of the giant trees, its trunk encased in glass and lit from within, grows right up through the center of the house! The entire property consists of the Main House (2/1) and La Casita guest cottage (1/1), which may rent separately or together (see Rates).
The secluded waterfront property has been enthusiastically described in popular publications such as Wine Enthusiast magazine, The New York Times, the Marin Independent Journal, 'Renting Paradise' (Northern California/Sonoma edition)and The Fine Living Channel's popular TV travel show, 'Around the World in 80 Homes.'
Guests can check email and surf the Internet from the home's handy computer via free wireless high speed cable Internet connection.

We are long time residents of San Francisco, avid local and international travelers, and enjoy the charm , food, climate and beauty of the Healdsburg area.
In 2012, we began 'idly' searching for a vacation property, and very quickly realized that if we were going to commit to a property, we really loved the area around the Fitch Mountain Road area, on the Russian River.
In January of 2013, after some fruitless researching and an offer that went nowhere, we came upon this beautiful property, which was listed, but not yet officially for sale. We arranged a viewing, and it was love at first sight. It really didn't take a lot of consideration , when within minutes, we knew this was the place for us. The charm and quality of the property, the intriguing history of the house, the river view, nature, serenity, and most impressively the magnificent Redwood Trees, which are an integral part of the house, all easily convinced us this was the One.
We had not bargained on buying a long time, very successful rental vacation property, but the previous owners have been great at easing us into being the new custodians of this wonderful and unique place.
We stay as often as our lives allow, and love the idea that when we are not able to, this amazing spot can be enjoyed by others.
The Redwood Tree House offers a unique combination of location on the riverfront and close proximity to Healdsburg. The charm, natural beauty and serenity of the property are world class. Wineries , outdoor activities, fantastic food are all within easy reach.
The home is located at the end of a dead end street, set down off the street on the river, ensuring the privacy and tranquility many guests enjoy. A few steps takes you to the water's edge where you can jump in and swim, cast a fishing line or take a short stroll to a nearby beach. The opposite bank of the river is a large natural green belt and attracts many species of waterfowl (heron, egrets, cormorants, ducks, etc.). Upon leaving this tranquil setting, you will find more than 60 world class wineries within 10 miles in three major wine growing regions (Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley). The Pacific Ocean is a scenic 45 minute drive, Lake Sonoma State Park is only 20 minutes away. However, there are few greater pleasures in life than sitting on our deck surrounded by redwoods, watching rafts and canoes float by, while sharing a bottle of local wine with friends and family.
World class wineries & tasting rooms (60 wineries within 10 miles of property), 4 star restaurants & numerous taverns, breweries & cafes, antique stores, eclectic boutiques, charming Spanish Colonial Town Square, Farmers Markets, live concerts, first-run Movies, garden & farm Tours, Golf Courses, Casino Gambling. Easy drive to Napa Valley, Pacific Ocean, Lake Sonoma and Redwood Forests.
