|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Large and beautifully appointed, separate country 'cottage' provides you with all the comforts of home in the midst of the amazing wine country of Sonoma and Russian River Valley. You can rent the complete upstairs one-bedroom unit (for one couple @ $275/night), or add on the second downstairs bedroom (for another couple or family members +$75 or $350/night total) for just a fraction more.
The kitchen is fully stocked for the gourmet cook, and offers both gas and charcoal grills for staying in and BBQing on those long, warm Summer/Fall nights. The deck has an eastern exposure -- perfect for sipping a cup of Peet's coffee (provided) and watching the hot air balloons take to the sky. And the private jacuzzi is a wonderful place to unwind and count the endless number of stars.
A vineyard of pinot noir surrounds the gated five-acre property, providing views in every direction. 2011 marked the year of our first harvest -- It was a beautiful event for us. Now the wine is in the bottle and will be awaiting your arrival to provide you with your first taste of this incredible area.
You will feel like you are far away from it all, when actually charming Windsor is only 2 miles away, and the lovely town of Healdsburg, with incredible shopping and dining, just 5 miles.
This is some of the most enchanting cycling country you will ever experience, and if wine tasting is your thing, this property is at the gateway of Russian River, Dry Creek and Alexander Valleys.
We spend time with our guests, when we are in town and upon request, making recommendations for wineries and restaurants, along with the many other activities this area offers. We want you to leave here feeling rested, relaxed and full of wonderful memories to reflect upon! Don't hesitate to call us with any question, and please contact us for a rate quote (the rate calculator does not work given the 1 & 2 bedroom options). Cheers!

Susan and Ron Stockman, Owners
Susan Stockman purchased this cottage in 2007
When we found this property six years ago, we knew we had arrived at our dream home, with enough land to plant a small vineyard. The landscaping was pretty bare-bones, so we had a wonderful time creating the garden setting that surrounds us now. After the best growing season in years, we harvested our second vintage of pinot noir grapes! We love that we feel like we are 'off the grid' when truly we are only minutes away from some lovely wine country towns -- and the wineries, too, of course! ;)
We had an amazing week in the Healdsburg area and calling this home added so much to the experience. The home was furnished first class and fully stocked with the nicest ammenities. We were greeted with a bottle of wine by Ron and Susan from their personal vineyard. There were ample suggestions to fill our days and evenings were spent relaxing in the hot tub.
The morning views were spectacular with the fog rising over the vineyard and giving view to the hot air balloons rising over the area.
We cannot wait to use this as our home base again as we continue to explore more of the Russian River Valley.
A top notch-place to stay--excellently equipped, clean, very spacious--a fun place for a short or extended visit. Near many of the major wineries, most within 20 minutes, the farthest maybe 30 minutes. Wonderful local views, outside porch for sipping your new-found favorites. Your hosts Ron and Susan are personable, knowledgeable, and helpful. My wife and I would stay here again in a heartbeat. If you're lucky, you can see hot-air balloons rising over Sonoma on some mornings!
Ron and Susan's cottage exceeded all expectations. They made the four of us feel at home and we all enjoyed their company very much. Their suggestions about the area were excellent. Their cottage is top shelf!
We have used VRBO for rentals in many locations. This was, by far, one of our best. Everything was first class. Susan and Ron made us feel very welcome and the kitchen/great room made us "not want to leave". After a day of touring and wine tasting, it was great to come back home to such comfortable surroundings. We decided to cook in one night and everything was great (plus the Old Camp Vines Pinot paired well with our salmon…). Our last day included a beautiful walk in the vineyard. Our only regrets: we didn't book for a longer stay. Next time we will...
Others have said that, too. A pleasant surprise to find that the venue exceeded our expectations! It was a lovely home, clean, modern, aesthetically pleasing, and comfortable. Four of us were happy in the two suites for 3 nights, and we cooked 2 meals in the wonderful kitchen. The surrounding vineyards were magical, as promised, and we did see that giant jackrabbit! Very close to everything. We hope to return! Thank you Susan and Ron.
We spent a fantastic 3 nights at the cottage in the beautiful fall season, our favorite time to visit wine country.
Ron and Susan’s welcomed us warmly and their hospitality as unmatched . The property is gorgeous, tucked away just off the main road, surrounded by vines and packed with charm.
My wife and I stayed upstairs in the King suite and main living area. Very well appointed with a cook’s kitchen and everything you might need during our stay. Our friend stayed downstairs in the Queen suite, which was also just as lovely and comfortable as pictured.
The location is a perfect jumping off point for wine touring. Just about two minutes from Eastside Rd., which is your access point for touring the Russian River valley. If you’re a Pinot lover, this is it, pinot central. A pleasant drive further North gets you to downtown Healdsburg as well as access to the Dry Creek and Alexander valleys.
We have used VRBO many times and careful research has rewarded us with gems like this property time and time again. Book with confidence and prepare for a fantastic stay. Enjoy!
Thanks to Ron and Susan for letting us share in this wonderful place.
