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!

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.

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 had the best time at Northwoods! The home was immaculate, and just sitting on the tree-shaded dock was so interesting and peaceful I felt no need to do anything else. I just watched the osprey, Steller's jays, heron and other birds, saw glimpses of big and small fish, and listened to the bull-frog across the river. We'd never kayaked before, but it seemed so safe that we ventured out and had a wonderful time - except for my husband who capsized in the rapids around the bend downstream. We were so content at the house, with all its comfortable chairs to laze around watching the river from upstairs and down, that we barely left it to explore Healdsburg. That will have to wait for next time, because we'll definitely be back!

Thorougly enjoyable location and accomodations. Thoughtful provision of just about everything we could wish for; the fans were welcome in the bedrooms! We used and enjoyed the hot tub and kayaks, and sat in the riverside chairs to gaze at the stars and listen to the sounds of nature. It was nice to have the washer and dryer available. Because this was a "working vacation" for me, I would have preferred wireless internet connection at the Lodge, but on the other hand the daily trip to town to find a hot spot meant we sampled a lot of different coffee shops and cafes we might otherwise have missed. We thank you for the professional handling of our reservation and the helpful information in advance of our stay!

The perfect place to relax after a day's wine tasting or Healdsberg shopping. Should comfortably sleep 6. Enjoying the nature scene on the Russian river below from either lower or huge upper deck is delightful.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Northwoods Lodge and in Sonoma in general! The house is darling and had everything we could possibly need for our four night stay. The jacuzzi provided a relaxing end to our full days of wine tasting and the grill allowed us the flexibility to stay in, cook dinner, and enjoy the good wine we had purchased. We enjoyed a fire every evening - it made everything smell so good! The river was so peaceful and we even ventured out in the kayaks one evening. But we made a mistake and forgot our shoes - never forget your shoes! The little rapids meant we had to walk the kayaks back and the rocky shoreline is painful on the feet! We will definitely return, bring more friends and family, and try each of the other houses as well. We loved it - thank you so much!

What a wonderful cabin! Beautifully decorated and an awesome view of the river! Only suggestion would be to have fans in the bedrooms -- it was very hot while we were there (not sure if the whole house fan was working. Switch was in the on position, but never heard it go on). Otherwise a great stay! Thanks!
Owner's Response: We are very sorry about the record-breaking heat wave that occurred here during your stay (and across most of the nation), and hope you were still able to enjoy some vacation fun relaxing on the shaded deck and in the river... Once they were back in stock in the stores, we did purchase additional fans for each of the three bedrooms, which should help quite a bit for any future, abnormally high temperatures. Thank you again for your stay!

Sincerely,

Lisa Neisingh
