This 825 square foot one bedroom apartment has everything you need for your stay. The bedroom has a queen size bed with a large walk-in closet. The living room, dining room and kitchen are situated in a 'through view' way so that it is a large area to live in. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking utensils, and service ware for all of your dining needs. We have a gas fireplace that provides for a warm and romantic setting. The bathroom is large and has a stackable washer/dryer, shower, and vanity. And the covered patio is cool and private, with a BBQ for your outdoor cooking. The yard is fully fenced so that your little ones, whether two or four legged, can wander about safely.
The owners, Toni Lisoni and Susan Jones, live in the main house next to the cottage with their two rescue pooches. Susan is the former police chief and Mayor, of Healdsburg. Toni is a civil rights attorney.
They each grew up in southern California and moved up to northern California in the 70's and 80's, respectively. They have lived in Healdsburg since 2002.
Susan Jones purchased this cottage in 2005
They planned to retire here but had the good fortune not to have to wait, as Susan accepted the police chief's job in February of 2002. Healdsburg has recently been named one of the top ten small cities in America, one of the top twenty foodie destinations in the world by ZAGAT, the second top wine region in the world, second only to Tuscany, Italy. And lastly, one of the top ten Plazas in America and one of the 'Seven Wonders' in the cycling world by Bicycling Magazine. Why would you not want to live here. :-)
The property is located up a private drive and situated on a hillside. It shares this drive with one other neighbor, and the cottage's owners. It's off the street so there is plenty of off-street parking and it is quiet. If you need more room, check out Heavensburg #474747. It is a one bedroom apartment that is situated above this unit.
We stayed in Susan and Toni's Healdsburg cottage for a month this summer and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. Healdsburg is a charming Sonoma county community with lots of cultural activities, including a live community theater, music on the town green on Tuesday nights, a farmers market twice a week, great restaurants, in addition to superb wine tasting. It is a bicyclist mecca as you cycle your way through miles and miles of winding roads through the vineyards. You can also canoe, kayak and swim in the Russian River which runs through the town. Healdsburg also has many miles of hiking trails through the hills only two blocks from the cottage where we enjoyed a long hike every morning before breakfast and again in the evening as we watched the sun set over the golden hills. Healdsburg is a great vacation spot to spend a day, a week, or a month. And only an hour and 15 minutes from San Francisco. Susan and Toni, the owners, are wonderful hosts. They are interesting people, with interesting careers and have fun stories to tell. They are very helpful with information about the area and attentive to your needs, yet they maintain their distance and give you your privacy even though they live next door to the cottage. Most of the time you won't even know they are there. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well stocked, including a nice bottle of chardonnay from a local winery as a welcome gift. The cottage consists of two full one bedroom apartments, an upstairs and downstairs. It is a great setup for couples traveling together, or any family group that wants their own privacy and space at times, yet wants to be close and travel together. We are a retired couple from Connecticut and occupied the upstairs, while our daughter, who lives in San Francisco, would come out at various times with friends and occupy the downstairs. We would socialize and share meals together on the patio, yet not have to be in each others face all the time. We were originally looking for a traditional two bedroom rental, but discovered that this two apartment setup worked even better for us. And it is unusual to find such a nice place that will allow you to have pets. With the hiking trails so close by, it is a wonderful place to bring your dog. We hope we can return next summer and highly recommend this cottage to anyone.
We had a wonderful time in our little hideaway. It is in a beautiful area with gorgeous scenery and soooo many wineries just a short drive away. The Tuesday night music in the center of town was just an added bonus. The 1 bedroom cottage was perfect for us as we had 2 small dogs with us and the yard was totally fenced in. We had never gone away to a rental before and were amazed by all the items that were there including cleaning supplies, washer/dryer soap and dryer sheets. Did not find any hampers or a hair dryer, but we made due.
I was actually looking for a place closer to Hidden Valley Lake, because that's where my horse is. This cottage was the only available with accommodations for 4 and a full kitchen - and it's a blessing that it was. I had to drive an hour into Hidden Valley Lake but it was worth it. This place is great! And the 'landlords' are SUPER nice and helpful. The cottage is clean and comfortable with everything you could need. My parents came down to stay for 5 nights and my husband I took the futon and gave them the bedroom. It was plenty cozy for all. When visiting the area again - this will be this first place I look for.
We rented this lovely cottage for three months and found it to be one of the best places we've stayed in Healdsburg. The owners, Toni and Susan, are extremely accommodating and very nice. The cottage has a private patio where we enjoyed our coffees in the morning. The interior is of the cottage is new. There is an electric fireplace that looks real and provides a lot of heat to keep the chill off on those winter mornings. The bed is comfortable and the linen is new and very nice. The kitchen is fully stocked so you can literally cook anything. The utensils are there. The stackable washer and dryer are great! Quiet too. The yard is completely fenced in so that you can let your dog run around free to sniff his surroundings and there are LOTS of hiking trails. We had to walk through part of the neighborhood to get to them, but it was fun because the neighbors in this area are VERY nice. We loved this place and we will be back!
Share the joy of Heavensburg! Just two miles from the downtown plaza and all local amenities, our cottage is nestled in a neighborhood hillside, up a private driveway, with covered, off-street parking, just steps from your front door. We offer a newly renovated and furnished, 1 bedroom cottage with a comfortable sofa bed to accommodate parties of up to three, or two adults and two small children.
The cottage offers a bedroom, living area, bathroom and kitchen. There is a private covered patio with a BBQ and sitting area. The cottage also has an indoor laundry.
Walk or drive into town or out into the vineyards. Treat yourself to the plethora of local fare in our rich and relaxed 'foodie haven,' or learn to be your own master chef at a 'teach and dine' experience at Relish Culinary school. Enjoy leisurely strolls or scenic 'power walks' through the miles of hiking and walking trails just a short jaunt from your front door. Then treat yourself to a revitalizing massage at one of our local spas or with a private masseuse.
Rest your spirit in the serenity of our local, agricultural pace, or venture out into the redwood forest of Armstrong Woods. Take in the rugged coastline and have lunch in Bodega Bay, or drive through scenic pasture lands to spend the day at dog-friendly, Dillon Beach. If the mood strikes you change the pace completely with a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco, just over an hour away, for some night life. Don't want to drive that far? Then try your luck at our local casino, River Rock, just 10 minutes north of us.
If you are into water sports, Lake Sonoma is just 20 minutes away and boat rentals are available.
There is so much to do and see, and plenty of reason to just sit and be. One month's stay will only serve to beckon you back.
