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!”

Northwood's owner, Lisa Neisingh, grew up in a rural area of Sonoma County, and enjoyed great vacations at her family's summer home. Wanting to share memorable getaway experiences with her children and others, she opened Northwoods Lodge, and three other nearby, riverfront homes, and has been inviting guests since 2003. Wanting to convey a relaxing, back-to-nature environment at Northwoods, 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 environment for those wanting to create special vacation memories while bonding with family and friends in a relaxingly, peaceful and unspoiled setting.
Lisa acquired her first riverfront home, 'Firefly',
just four doors away, in 2003, for the purpose of sharing great times with her family and grandchildren.
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!
