Overview

Healdsburg House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bath, Breathtaking Vineyard Views

The newly remodeled Estate at Chalk Hill is a luxury private residence in the famed Alexander Valley of Healdsburg. With approximately 3,000 square feet of living area and sweeping vineyard views, this 'contemporary rustic' retreat is the perfect place for families and friends to gather, unwind and build traditions. Perched atop a hill, The Estate at Chalk Hill feels wonderfully secluded, yet restaurants, shopping, wineries and a myriad of outdoor adventures are just a short drive away and Windsor and Healdsburg are within 5 and 10 miles, respectively.

Living. The Estate at Chalk Hill is a single level home with an open floor plan and towering beamed ceilings in communal areas. The main living room has a cozy sitting area with an over sized wood burning fireplace. A separate lounge area has a sectional couch facing a large plasma TV with surround sound, a DVD player and iPod connections. The house also has a wireless network for the convenience of guests.

Eating. The dining/kitchen area features another over-sized wood burning fireplace with a dining table that seats 10. The open kitchen has a large island with bar stools, commercial appliances and all of the dinnerware to host an amazing dinner. Should you need a place for the wine you collect during your visit, there is a 42 bottle locker in the dining area.

Sleeping. The Estate at Chalk hill has four bedrooms, one of which is also a multipurpose room perfect for children. The master features a king size bed with a large walk in closet, luxurious master bath and sliding glass door to a deck. The two guest bedrooms have queen beds and overlook vineyards. The second bath has an over sized double shower with a picture window. It adjoins one of the guest bedrooms and can also be accessed from the hallway. The final bedroom is multifunctional, and has two twin beds, a fooz ball table, a plasma tv and is connected to a full bathroom that also houses the washer/dryer.

Lounging & Playing. From every spot on the property you can take in spectacular views of the Alexander Valley and Mt. St Helena. Enjoy the pool during the day (note that it is now fenced for safety), and hot tub at night; a friendly bocce ball match or a game of 'HORSE' at the basketball half court. Small children can enjoy the walk-in playhouse. Or if lounging is what's in order, grab a book and enjoy the sun deck, hammock or porch swing. Beyond the property there are ample hiking and biking opportunities...as well as golf, zip lining, hot air ballooning and more!

About Lisa Hauswirth

Our family of four resides in San Francisco, as does our extended family. Healdsburg has always been one our favorites places to escape and explore - it's understated, yet sophisticated. Chic, but not fancy. Right up our alley!

Lisa Hauswirth purchased this house in 2013

Why Lisa Hauswirth chose Healdsburg

We looked at this property when it was for sale several years. We fell in love with the views (as did the VRBO Bear Traveler!), and the aesthetic of the house but the timing wasn't right. After several years off the rental market, we are delighted to be sharing The Estate at Chalk Hill with others again.

What makes this house unique

Of course we are biased but we can't think of a better gathering spot to build traditions with friends and family. The house is perfect for entertaining and togetherness - open layout, high ceilings, large farmhouse table, several fireplaces. It is both cozy and contemporary.

Did not disappoint! Perfect home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had read the amazing reviews of estate at chalk hill farm over the summer and had wanted to rent it. It was not available but when we decided to go back to wine country we grabbed this house for Thanksgiving. It did not disappoint at all.

The house was immaculate. Beds super comfy. The kitchen equipped so that making a multi dish meal for thanksgiving was a breeze. There are plenty of pots, pans, serving pieces and dishes. If you are a cook this house is for you. There is nothing more frustrating than not having the right equipment. In addition, Lisa generously leaves things such as spices, flour, sugar, etc. what a pleasure not to have to haul all that with you.

The television and den are perfect for watching hours of football (which we did!) and movies on a rainy day. (Yes it actually rained)

We took the suggestion of other renters and went to taste wine at Calluna estates which you can see from the bedroom side of the house. The owners are very knowledgeable and my family and I thoroughly enjoyed our education and wine tasting experience with them. It is a must do on your calendar.

In short, we will probably rent again. The vistas are gorgeous, the pool beautiful even though we didn't get to swim in it.

Amazing down to the very last detail!

  • 5 of 5
I've rented plenty of homes through VRBO and have never bothered to take the time to write a review. But I just have to for this gem. The owners were so attentive from the day I first inquired about the property. Two days before I arrived I wrote to ask a few questions about their kitchen appliances, knowing we wanted to take advantage of the amazing kitchen. In response, the owners sharpened the knives prior to our arrival. Amazing! Once we got to the property we didn't want to leave. It's isolated, breathtaking and has everything you need for a fabulous stay. I have never been so comfortable outside my own home. It was perfect for our family and wish we had stayed longer.

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect place to get away from it all. We had 8 people stay to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday and I could not have been happier with the Estate at Chalk Hill.

The property is gorgeous, the furnishings are beautiful, the pool and hot tub hit the spot, and the views are breathtaking.

We had easy access to run, bike, visit wineries, drive into Healdsburg or just to relax on the deck.

I'll definitely be back again. I LOVED this property.

Simply Wonderful: Fabulous House, Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 5 girls and this house was more than perfect for us. I highly recommend for everyone as it has everything you would want and more. Plenty of room, kitchen fully stocked, comfortable beds, hot tub and BBQ pits were perfect after a long day of drinking but nothing tops the absolute stunning views. We are hoping to return back within the next year or two. Lisa is also very easy to work with with quick responses to all of your needs.

House is on a vineyard and after reading a review from past guests we reached out to the owner and he picked us up on his ATV for a private wine tasting on the estate. You wouldn't get this experience anywhere else! Location is not too far from downtown Healdsburg but if you will be touring multiple wineries and drinking, I highly recommend a limo service. We used Stornetta Limos, pricing was slightly cheaper than competition but the service was far beyond what we expected with accomodations and professionalism. Highly recommend Stornetta if you are in need of a driver...ask for Magic Mike!

Spectacular views and a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from the Estate at Chalk Hill and can not express enough how wonderful our trip was. I was already sold on Healdsburg, but my friends who were first time visitors left wanting to return ASAP. The Hauswirth's home made our trip that much more special. The house is perfectly appointed with great decor and there is not a thing missing in the kitchen. Everything is clean, nicer quality, in great condition and well maintained. Lisa was fantastic to work with as other reviewers have mentioned. She was quick to respond and patient with my often, very specific questions. One of the most special and memorable afternoons was our visit to Calluna Vineyards which is adjacent to The Estate at Chalk Hill. David Jeffery was extremely accommodating with our schedule changes for a private tasting. Rather than us making the drive, David offered to pick us up at the back fence and drive us to his lovely home and tasting area on his ATV! We were thrilled with the unique adventure (compared to other Vineyards!) and even more impressed with the legacy of Calluna, as well as David's fantastic wines (our case recently arrived). I hope to return to The Hauswirth's in the future and thank them for sharing their lovely home.

A Special Place and a Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5
I cannot speak highly enough of both my stay at this special place nestled in the hills of Healdsburg or of what a pleasure it was to work with Lisa.

Lisa made all arrangements seamless, stress free and professional. She is warm and accommodating and this was reflected in her home.

The estate itself is really something special secluded, exclusive an ideal location whether you be looking for a romantic getaway, time with family or friends or even a retreat with work (I wish!)

Don't hesitate to book this place - quick before someone beats you to it!
