HEALDSBURG HILLTOP RETREAT :: CRAFTSMAN DETAIL, MODERN COMFORTS & STUNNING VIEWS

Healdsburg House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Enjoy extraordinary views and re-connect with what matters in this secluded, completely remodeled cabin with custom craftsmanship and creatively repurposed materials in every room. The setting is private with nearly 200 acres of unspoiled woods out the back door - yet we're just seven minutes from Healdsburg square with great shopping, a wealth of tasting rooms and restaurants to please every palate. Wine tasting along Russian River's still-small and beautiful wine road is close and convenient.

Climb the steps to a tranquil getaway with exquisite views, and you'll not want to leave (many don't). Our most consistent feedback is that this 'tree house' feels like a world away from it all with its own little peaceful gravity well.

From April through August, we enjoy walkable Russian River access down the street for kayaking, tubing, or lounging on the beach. Year-round, there are hiking trails to choose from just outside the front or back door, as well as biking and paddle-boarding on the river. Within a short drive are some of the area's most beautiful trails and rides.

We have hand-crafted hardwood floors and (heated) tile throughout with well-placed windows for a very open feel, that never-the-less maintains total privacy. Enjoy the outdoor patio while taking in the views, napping, reading or sipping wine. Or venture out back to take in 180 degree views from above the trees, BBQ under the open sky, recount the days' events, or just play horseshoes.

For all the charm & craft, you'll find that the layout makes sense. In the master suite is a Cal king bed, 'en suite' full bath and private patio. Upstairs in the guest bedroom are two twins looking out into the forest, with a separate full bathroom on this main level. We also have two more twins available on the covered porch, as well as a convertible twin/full sofabed in the entry den. The kitchen opens onto the porch, looks out beyond the trees and is connected with the main living room.

We strive to keep the house tastefully appointed and amply stocked with all that you'll need for a comfortable & relaxing stay - from toiletries & hair dryers to a cook's kitchen, 'smart' TV & WiFi, and plenty of games for the playing.

Be prepared to be enchanted by this unique home on Healdsburg's Fitch mountain! It's worth the climb.

About Heather

We are a couple from San Francisco who have long loved the Russian River valley and Healdsburg in particular. Sharing this place with others is a pleasure and a privilege for us.

Why Heather chose Healdsburg

It's a well-situated, peaceful getaway with stunning views & incredible craftsman detail. Healdsburg & the Russian River wineries are still intimate & small, yet sophisticated.

What makes this house unique

Best of both worlds :: At the end of the paved road & up in the trees, time slows down & life feels quieter here - but then Healdsburg food, shopping & wineries are 7 minutes away.

Magical

  • 5 of 5
It has been one year since we stayed at this property, and it still rates as our absolute favorite VRBO. Having had one not-so-fabulous experience in Boston, we appreciate this Healdsburg retreat all the more. It is unique properties, like this one, that far exceed photo-generated expectations that help us keep the faith in VRBO. A personal favorite memory...preparing a great dinner together in the beautifully appointed kitchen while simultaneously be blown away by the view of the forest canopy turning golden at sunset. Our sincere thanks to the owners for sharing.

Healdsburg Stay

  • 5 of 5
Décor of this lovely home only is worth a return visit! Daily exercise can be obtained by climbing the steps to enter home. Owner is responsive and accommodating to inquires, as well as plans for a last minute guest (Thank you!).
Adventurous road to access home is true to owner's description. Provided renters with detailed description of home, area restaurants, and places to visit. Views from mountain are gorgeous both at sunrise and sunset. Bring a camera to capture the beauty of home and surroundings.
Minutes from center of Healdsburg with plenty of restaurants and shopping. Enjoyed several wineries while in the area. Short drive from Armstrong Woods and only 2 hours from San Francisco. Perfect location for first time visitors to Sonoma County/Northern CA, as plenty of things to explore.
House equipped with high end appliances, so meal preparation a breeze. Enjoyed appetizers out on the sleeping porch with our wine purchases.Sons played horseshoes and plenty of board games for family to enjoy.
We were only in area for a few days, so did not get chance to explore the beach areas. Hope to return in future to explore the outdoor sports/recreation areas, as well as return to wineries.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our time at the house! Despite the windy (& a little bit scary) drive up the hill, the house is a beautiful, gorgeous getaway. It was decorated very nicely and was super clean. We had all the ammenities that you could possibly need for a week's vacation.

We were actually there for our wedding, so unfortunately we had extra luggage for this trip. My poor husband-to-be had to carry so many heavy bags up those stairs (& there are plenty!). But we really did enjoy our time there due to the spectacular views and the quiet. My parents even enjoyed it and made it up the stairs several times - and they are in their 60's.

Heather's hospitality was wonderful and we would love to stay again next time we come back to the area. Maybe it will be our anniversary tradition?!?

Great Wine Country Hideaway

  • 5 of 5
This is a great house with incredible views of the Russian River Valley. Great for sitting outside and having a glass of wine with friends. The house is perfect for two couples and is less than 10 minutes from Healdsburg Square. I would highly recommend this house if touring wineries in Sonoma county.

Sonoma County Treasure

  • 5 of 5
There were four of us (females in our 50's) who travel together a few days every year flying in from FL and Ky. We love to come in for the Sonoma Valley Food and Wine Festival and enjoy the Wineroad during the day exploring the local vineyards in a beautiful fall setting. We arrive back at the house late afternoon where we prepare a meal and talk and laugh and catch up. We could not have found a better home to make this a magical trip and to enjoy the area surrounding Healdsburg. Yes, there are multiple steps straight up to get to your vacation home along with coming in on a winding road, but well worth it. We enojyed the scenery looking over teh hills from the full porch/veranda every morning and evening. Our hostess, Heather made sure we had all the comforts of home and that we knew where to find them. We will be back if your home is not fully booked for years to come:)

Aerie Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This hillside property was exactly what we were looking for. It is quiet, on a dead-end lane. It has a lovely view from the front porch that runs the length of the house. We used the porch as our living room. The interior design is lovely, and the place was immaculate. We picked it for its central location for touring Sonoma and Napa. As it turns out Healdsburg has many fine restaurants and shops just minutes away. The owner sent us a document with plenty of Healdsburg information before we got there.
Warning: My wife counted 53 steps from the parking spot to the front door. Think of it as a calorie fighter.
We'll be back.
