Healdsburg House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Northwoods appeals to its guests with its spectacular riverfront setting, spacious river view deck, charming decor, exceptionally comfortable beds, outstanding cleanliness, high quality amenities, the private dock and kayaks, a beautiful, tranquil and even 'perfect location', with easy access to all wine country attractions, plus outstanding customer service.

Northwoods is a charming and peaceful riverfront getaway that has everything you'll need for a great wine country stay for two to six guests. Located less than one mile from Healdsburg, Northwoods is the perfect choice for summer fun, or cozy winter getaways. There's a fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, river views, an expansive deck, a 4-5 person Marquis spa, a private dock with kayaks, and a Weber gas BBQ grill. You'll love the contemplative stillness, sitting on the dock surrounded breathtaking scenery. The only likely interruptions will be the kerplunk of a fish, or croak of a bullfrog. You'll come away refreshed!

There are 3 bedrooms, with comfortable queen size beds and fine linens. A fourth sleeping area is the upstairs sitting room. It has a twin size daybed, plus a twin size trundle that rolls out from beneath. There is one full bath is upstairs, and one full bath on the lower level. Overnight occupancy is limited to 6, plus any children under 3 years of age.

The décor includes vintage, northwoods style birch and willow furnishings, plus leather seating in the living room.

NORTHWOODS is just one of our four beautiful, vacation homes in Healdsburg. Call us for information on them all, or visit our WineCountryLodges website to view our more than 80 photos per property.

For larger groups, our Firefly Lodge is just 4 doors away on the same riverfront lane and sleeps 8 guests. Also nearby is our Riverwood Lodge that sleeps 8 and our Old River Lodge that sleeps 6. Note: Due to the peaceful and residential nature of the neighborhood parties and special events are not allowed.

All four of our beautiful riverside settings are tranquil. The soothing sounds of the river de-stress and relax those needing a break from hectic urban life. Listen to the sounds of nature and unwind while enjoying the charming accommodations, comfortable beds, the cozy fire, and a slower pace, while being a short mile, or so, from the hub of this world class wine producing region. At Wine Country Lodges, we've been inviting guests to enjoy the unique pleasures of Sonoma County Wine Country for over seven years.

- “Three couples just stayed at the Northwoods Lodge and had a wonderful time. It was so nice to have our own private place to come 'home' to after a day out visiting the wineries. At the end of the trip we spent two days in Napa. We were so glad that we spent most of trip in Healdsburg. It has great shopping, restaurants, and is small and quaint. The wineries are on quiet back roads with beautiful scenery. We hope to come back!”

Wine Country Lodges’ history in Sonoma County started with its founder, Lisa Neisingh. Lisa was raised in Sonoma County, where she enjoyed vacations with her family at their riverfront cabin on Healdsburg’s Fitch Mountain and where she learned to swim with her cousins in the Russian River. Wanting to continue to share similar getaway experiences for additional families and friends, she bought Northwoods in 2007, as Wine Country Lodges’ fourth riverfront vacation home. With Northwoods she wanted to convey a relaxing, back-to-nature environment, she chose upscale, rustic, and charming antique 'Northwoods' style furnishings to make guests feel welcomed and relaxed. The home and its accommodations provide the perfect atmosphere for those wanting to create special vacation memories while bonding with family and friends in a relaxingly, peaceful and unspoiled riverfront setting. Wine Country Lodges continues in the tradition of welcoming guests and is now owned and managed by Lisa’s children Jared B Pickrell and Jill Jensen. Our family enjoys filling these wonderful riverfront homes with comfortable furnishings, relaxing amenities, and providing an array of adventurous and leisurely activities for our guests to enjoy.

We Look Forward to Welcoming You to Healdsburg’s Riverfront Wine Country.

Wine Country Lodges LLC purchased this house in 2007

Lisa acquired Northwoods as a fourth riverfront home addition to Wine Country Lodges. Northwoods has an ideal riverfront location and is just four doors away from our first vacation home, Firefly, providing excellent close accommodations for many groups desiring adjacent accommodations.

It's breathtakingly peaceful setting on the river is one of our guests' favorite things about Northwoods Lodge. A year ago a guest proposed marriage to his sweetheart in that most inspiring setting! In the summer, with our dock right at the water level, there's so much to do, or just sit in the deck chairs and watch. The water is warm, and clean, and the swimming is fabulous! The canoe traffic glides peacefully by. We make kayaks available to you, too. The home itself is as charming as can be. It's neat, tidy, appealing and supplied with everything you'll need to feel at home. It's furnished for comfort, from leather in the living room, to our very comfortable pillow top beds. The decor and antiques are laid back, rustic,and refined all at the same time. The large, beautiful, river view deck, shaded by redwoods and bay trees, is a cool place to relax in the summer. We keep the hot tub sparkling clean and bubbly for your enjoyment, and we provide zero gravity, recliner chairs on the deck for your relaxation. There are plenty of tables and chairs, to, to help you enjoy outdoor living. We furnish a 'fishing' room, well stocked with poles, tackle, fishing guide books, and the regulations and information you'll need to know. You'll find Northwoods Lodge to be a wonderful home to return to after a day away touring wineries. It's so close to Sonoma and Napa Wineries, and only one mile from Healdsburg. The location is 'perfect'!! We look forward to welcoming you soon!

We came to Healdsburg/Sonoma county for my 50th birthday and stayed at the Northwoods and what a great place! The day we flew in on, April 9th, was a cold rainy day but how nice it was when we opened the door to find a cozy fire waiting for us! We were also very pleased on how nice, clean and beautifully decorated the home was and it had everything you needed! The view from our deck was super and relaxing in the hot tub is a nice touch after shopping in Healdsburg and wine tasting. And the beds are GREAT! We highly recommed this property for a group of 4 - we are already talking about our next trip back and staying here. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Northwoods! Our one regret was that we
didn't stay longer (only 3 nights)! Next year we hope to come back and stay
for a week so we won't feel rushed to see the wineries and the towns and
surrounding areas. The lodge itself was charming. Very nicely rennovated,
clean and comfortable (especially the beds!) The hot tub was perfect after a day of winetasting (altho we like it a little hotter!) And sitting down by the river sipping our wine was perfect. One of our group enjoyed the kayack, while another enjoyed fishing. I'm a bird watcher so I had fun spotting Ospreys, great white egrets, mergansers and Stellar Jays (thanks for the binoculars & bird book!). Our stay was both relaxing and stimulating! Probably the only complaint was that the directions to the hot tub weren't real clear, and at
night you really can't see what buttons you're pushing. All in All we
had a terrific stay. Thanks!

The house was great to call 'home' for 5 days. We really enjoyed the ability to make meals, do laundry and just relax at a house rather than a hotel. We'd definitely come here again!

Our short holiday stay at the lodge was exactly what we hoped for our family — lazy, relaxing days sitting by the fire, and in the hot tub — talking, reading, playing games, and exploring the nearby town of Healdsburg. We'd definitely recommend it to others!
