The house is nestled in the woods on a 20 acre hillside vineyard with breathtaking views overlooking Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County.
It is adjacent to Everett Ridge Winery, where all guests are welcome to relax and taste wine. It is a secluded country retreat which is gated but is less than a 5 minute drive to the downtown square in the charming and popular historic wine country town of Healdsburg.
The house is appointed with antiques and tastefully decorated. It has great outdoor space with two decks overlooking the surrounding vineyards.

Jan and Brent Stanley are vineyard owners who farm Zinfandel and Petit Syrah grapes. They moved to the area from San Francisco with their two dogs, Mollie and Bo.
The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007
The location is unique in that it is in the country with beautiful views but it is also a mere 5 minute drive into town. The area is replete with many leisure activities and is also a charming place to relax and rejuvenate.
The house is finely appointed with king size beds and a private bath for each of the two bedrooms. It has a living room with a fireplace and a separate dining room which seats 8. It has charming outdoor space with 3 separate sitting areas, an outdoor grill and a table for outdoor dining.
We stayed in this perfectly decorated and cared for home for a week. The home is well appointed and the location is just minutes to downtown Healdsburg which has lots of great eateries and quaint shopping. Less than a block from the house is small winery called Everett Ridge where you can enjoy a wine tasting or grab a bottle to take back to the cottage and relax with on the patio. Each day you walk out the front door and are engulfed by rolling fields of grapevines. The home is quiet and the surroundings splendid. The owners are a true delight and have expert knowledge on the local community and sites not to be missed. We give this cottage a 10+!
The Stanley's Vineyard Cottage is an absolute gem. We stayed at the house with our two children (8 and 10) & my brother and his girlfriend. Four adults and two kids. One of the bedrooms is large enough to accomodate two Aerobeds on metal stands so our family of four was very comfortable. The living area is spacious and inviting. The kitchen is very well appointed. We did not cook anything more than breakfast at the cottage, but the pots, pans, utensils, etc., would make cooking larger meals entirely do-able. The outdoor decks around the house are just lovely. My morning coffee doesn't taste nearly as good here at home since I'm not overlooking the picture-perfect vineyards and the valleys beyond.
The location of the cottage is perfect for a week in the Dry Creek/Russian River/Alexander Valleys region because while the house is tucked into a quiet vineyard of its own, it is a short drive to the highway as well as to the many local scenic roads.
Jan and Brett clearly care about their property and their guests. They are attentive and incredibly thoughtful.
We highly recommend the Stanley's Vineyard Cottage.
I am tardy submitting my review, but only because I am reluctant to share this gem with the world. We loved our stay at Jan and Brent's Healdsburg Vineyard Cottage. We were with another couple and the space was perfect for four people. The location was perfect. The beds were comfortable and the cottage was well appointed. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch every morning and a glass of wine at the end of the day. The location was perfect for relaxing, going into town and visiting the many wineries that dot the area. Jan and Brent, we will see you again. We can't wait for our return. Thank you!!
We stayed here with another couple and had a great time. The owners of this home have thought of everything you could possibly need or want. We enjoyed sitting on the patio in the evening looking out at the amazing views of the vineyard surrounding us. Jan and Brent had a nice bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived and they were super attentive to our needs. Brent even stopped by to make recommendations of vineyards and dining options. The lay out of the home was perfect for two couples with your own spacious room and beautiful bathrooms. Would highly recommend and we will definitely go back!!
We had a wonderful all around experience at the cottage on our long weekend getaway! It's the perfect size for 2 couples. The Stanleys really thought of every comfort and necessity that you could hope for! There are comfy robes for the guests, wonderful kitchen amenities, and other conveniences that you usually only find at a hotel room. They even provide bicycles and helmets to enjoy the beautiful bike riding the area has to offer, without having to drive to a bike shop and rent bikes. The view from the patio is spectacular and a great place to relax and have coffee in the morning or wine during the afternoon sunsets! There are many wineries close by to visit. Healdsburg offers great tasting experiences without the high cost and crowds that you find in Napa. We had never stayed in this area (we usually stay in Napa or Calistoga) - but we will definitely come back and would love to stay at this cottage again.
We had never traveled to the Healdsburg area before and we couldn't have asked for a better set-up than this perfect cottage. The cottage offers fantastic views and with two spacious bedrooms and 2 nicely appointed bathrooms, it was perfect for 4 adults. We enjoyed biking into Healdsburg everyday for breakfast and being only a short car ride from so many vineyards and wineries. Thanks to Jan for being the perfect host!
The cottage was just what the Dr. Ordered! We come to Healdsburg quite often and have rented a variety of places over the years. This was our favorite place! Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again. Loved the convenience to town and the wineries. We also enjoyed our complimentary tasting at Everett Ridge right next to the cottage. Jan the owner was easy to communicate with and was so sweet and accommodating. The house was immaculant and very well taken care of. We enjoyed and took advantage of the outdoor patio in the evenings which was so relaxing! Loved the privacy of the home too. And all the attention to detail inside the home was so nice. From the bottle of wine that was left for us to enjoy, to the little notes throughout the home. Like the note to use the picnic basket, to the note by the bed where extra pillows could be found, to the note on the fridge with a notepad asking to write if there was anything that could be added to the kitchen items. It's just so appreciated that they really care about the comfort of their guests. The beds were very cozy too! Thankyou for a great weekend!
