Amazing Property and Hospitality!
We stayed at The Barrel House for a long weekend (Thu-Mon) for a girls' weekend celebrating the year we all turn 40...and we couldn't have been happier with this amazing property. The house is better than the photos and the grounds are wonderful and full of interesting, beautiful nooks...not to mention the gorgeous pool.
We've been using VRBO for several years and have stayed in many properties - this one is definitely in our top group of favorites. It hardly feels like a rental at all: very well-equipped and comfortable (the kitchen is beyond fabulous!) Pam was so helpful and responsive - opened up the house and did a walk-through, etc. But also went above and beyond when a flight was delayed and we weren't going to be there in time to receive our grocery delivery - she happily offered to be at the house and handle that. She's a wealth of local knowledge, too, offering restaurant recommendations and activity suggestions. The business end of things (rental agreement/deposit, etc.) was all handled promptly and was highly professional in nature. Our security deposit had been issued for return before my plane had landed home.
There were seven us (all adults) and it was spacious and comfortable...plenty of places to relax, dine and lounge. It is very conveniently located - close enough to the town to take advantage of all that Healdsburg offers while still feeling semi-secluded and private because of the well-maintained grounds.
I can't imagine anyone being disappointed in any aspect of The Barrel House. No one in our group wanted to leave. It was truly a spectacular birthday celebration!
