Located at the apex of Fitch Mountain this riverfront home is 2.75 miles from town and a stone's throw from the famous Russian River. There is a small front patio and two very large decks with river and tree views. The main house has a small remodeled kitchen with dining area, a nice sized living room with wood burning stove, two lovely bedrooms and one full bath with shower. The lower level is an ample sized bedroom with sitting area and a large bath again with a shower. There are decks on both levels. Stairs to the wooded garden and rocky beach. During the summer months there is a beach palapa on the beach for guests of the house outfitted with chairs and lounges.
There is central heat upstairs, and a space heater down. Dishwasher in kitchen.Bicycles available as well as kayak and canoe.
I spent a perfect Labor Day weekend at this house celebrating my 40th birthday with friends who flew in from NY and Vancouver. Not one of us was disappointed; as a matter of fact, the house exceeded our expectations. I find Healdsburg to be the ideal location when basing yourself in wine country. We went skydiving in Cloverdale on the day of my birthday, wine tasting in Sonoma County throughout that weekend, plenty of lunch and dinner and drink options at the Healdsburg square; but I think our best day was the day we just spent having brunch on the lovely deck then relaxing in the palapa by the river, or floating on the water. The house is big enough to accommodate a group or family comfortably and privately (loved my private unit down the stairs!) and we didn't lack for anything as far as supplies and cookware. I am looking forward to spending more weekends at this perfect house by the river. Highly recommended. Thank you, Jessica and owners!!
Our family of 5 had a great time at the cabin. We enjoyed the comfortable lounge chairs and gas grill. The canoe and kayak was also a big hit. The beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were well stocked with shampoo, conditioners, etc. and there were plenty of towels.
No AC, the cabin gets really hot in the afternoon. The downstairs suite smelled musty and the smell did not go away even though we tried to air out the area by opening all the windows. Also, the lock to the downstairs suite were missing some screw so it was barely holding to the door and probably will not be able to withstand a strong push.
The more time we spent in this delightful refuge in the woods overlooking the picturesque Russian River, the more creature comforts we discovered. There is no tenant-proofing here. Fabulous deep 50 ft wide deck, with quality comfortable furniture and an excellent gas grill. Wonderful kitchen table with a view. Great beds. Cathedral ceilings give the place a feeling of space and proportion. Sitting in the comfy Adirondack chairs down by the River is a serenely beautiful experience. The place is rustic, unpretentious, and a bit worn, but clean, totally comfortable and quiet. And a 9 minute drive to the Healdsburg Square.
My family and friends have gathered at River Relaxation for several years now and it remains as fantastic as ever. The house is warm and inviting, comfortable, well-equipped and well-maintained.
We ate breakfasts, lunches and dinners on the expansive deck, which has a wonderful view overlooking the river. The beach access is superb -- the river is deep enough to swim in at this location -- and the beach casita, with its chairs, chaise lounges and shade, provides an excellent place to spend long sun-filled days at the river's edge.
This home exudes rest and relaxation! It is cozy, clearly made and maintained with care, and offers everything you might want to enjoy a get away from urban life. The property enjoys a massive beach complete with shelter, beach chairs, and boats that can leave you enjoying the river all day long followed by relaxing mornings and evenings on the the deck with BBQ overlooking the river. Don't miss this chance to getaway!
BIG, BIG thank you to the owners for a most wonderful stay. As we entered at check-in, we were warmly welcomed with a bottle of wine. We declared our little beagle and she felt the warm welcome too with bowls of fresh water and kibbles. (Thank you!) The cottage was just as described -- cozy, furnished with everything you'll need for cooking and grilling (and more), sheets and towels were fresh, beds were delightful to sleep in. The whole house was rustic and full of character. We took the room facing the deck on the main level and had beautiful views of the Russian River as we woke up in the mornings.
The large deck on the main level was very enjoyable and equipped with comfy lounge chairs and dining table, gas grill, fridge, heater and decorative lights which created a nice ambiance for our dinners. Bring some citronella candles as we did, and no doubt you'll enjoy bug-free dinners.
We did not have any shortage on outdoor entertainment either. There was a canoe and kayak, a small charcoal grill, and a huge palapa (canopy) was set-up when we arrived, complete with lounge chairs -- we were set for a lovely afternoon by the beach! The section of the river in front of the house is shallow so you'll have to plan ahead if you intend to do some serious kayaking, otherwise you can skirt around to find the deeper sections.
Safeway and lovely downtown Healdsburg were about 9 minutes away by car. Overall, our group had a blast at this cottage and we highly recommend it.
Located just 2.75 miles from town this home sits at the apex of Fitch Mountain. Walkers and runners are seen running from dawn to dusk, bicyclists ride the hill all times of the year. Walk the circumferencee of the mountain for a good and healthy workout.
