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 share similar getaway experiences with her children and others, she bought Firefly Lodge in 2003, in the vicinity of her great grandparents' home at Healdsburg's historic river resort, Camp Rose. Soon after Firefly, Lisa bought three additional homes nearby, and has been inviting guests ever since. The homes are elegant, rustic residences; that are both casual and eye appealing. Each home comfortably accommodates guests seeking a place to gather for memorable retreats with family and friends. The very restful, natural settings offer guests a welcome respite from urban life, providing guests an incredibly beautiful and unspoiled natural riverfront environment. 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.
Lisa was searching for a rustic riverfront getaway - the kind she remembered as a child - a place to go with family and friends and leave the cares of the world behind! She wanted it not too fussy so it would have that 'relaxing' feeling and wanted it to be waterfront, with plenty of beautiful views and fun water activities. Lisa looked for a home with a big, covered deck, and plenty of room around the table. After searching for a LONG time, she finally found Firefly and felt that, 'This was it !!!!. Soon, she began to start sharing this wonderful environment with family, friends and guests !!!

The covered, river view deck is perfect for year 'round outdoor enjoyment and dining. The views from the deck are wonderful, and the water is so close you can see the fish swimming. The river is slower and more lake-like in this location, making it a perfect spot for summertime fun. In the winter the warm glow of the river rock fireplace, the comfort of the soft leather sofas, and the fantastic views of the rushing river make this a wonderful choice for a cozy winter getaway.
