Guestbook comments from the owner

Merry Christmas! What a great home to spend our Christmas in. We friends were away from family, but made ourselves at home for a wonderful Christmas meal. We travelled from Healdsburg to Medicino to Santa Rosa, and tried wines in Anderson Valley, the Russian River and Dry Creek areas. We laughed a lot, and credit that to our comfort in your house. Thanks.

Can't wait to be able to return---Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at FML. There is nothing more joyous than having your family under one roof. Everything needed (except food) was provided. The house was so well equipped and lots of games for the kids for their down time! I would highly recommend FML but afraid by doing so it may not be available when we want to go again! Loved this house, the views, the accommodations, access to river, the decks--best weekend house ever! Hope to return again--Thank you Stephen Boyle....and the photographs on the walls are amazing Thanks for sharing! The Bowen/Korntved family.

More than comfortable house w/ a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fitch Mountain Lookout. The house had everything we needed and more, which is a challenge with two small babies. The property manager was very helpful and accommodating (providing two travel cribs and sheets). The location and view are phenomenal. Only drawback would be both restrooms are located on the bottom floor, rough for anyone staying in top floor bedroom but totally doable. We would definitely book again.

Cozy house, great location, and deer!

  • 5 of 5

Really great house, very cozy and warm for the week after Christmas. We saw deer and hawks everyday. Although we felt secluded, it was still a very short drive into town. The kitchen was well-stocked and no issues at all with the WIFI (most places do have issues from my experience). Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful house, great views, excellent condition

  • 5 of 5

I have rented a lot of houses over the years and this one is right at the top of the list. The house is in perfect condition with huge views and lots of light from every room. It is very roomy with all the amenities you could want and everything works perfectly. From the time you reserve the house, the owner sends detailed recommendations for things to do and places to eat in the area. On the arrival day, the property manager left a very welcoming message and a phone number in case we had any questions or problems. We had no problems or complaints at all and really didn't want to leave at the end of the weekend. the kitchen was extremely well stocked, the fireplace provided lots of heat, the hot tub was lovely overlooking the river valley, and there were lots of extra towels, bedding and anything else you could need. I can't recommend the house highly enough. Just perfect.

great property near downtown Healdsburg

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed this vacation get-away property... close to downtown Healdsburg, but with a feeling of a remote mountain cabin there in the hills alongside the Russian River. The main floor with the living room, kitchen, and eating areas was spacious for our group of 7, and the 3 bedrooms included enough space to be comfortable. Note the 2 full baths are on the lower level, which, although a bit unusual, is not a terrible inconvenience. The views from the backside of the home were really beautiful.

Owner's Response: Hi Stephen, Thank you for taking the time to review Fitch Mountain Lookout. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. Many guests have told me that they like the remote feeling of Fitch Mountain Lookout even though it is just a few minutes from the town square. Best, Stephen.

Lovely house with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Fitch Mountain Lookout for a weekend of paddling on the Russian River with friends and family, and loved it. The house is clean and well-equipped, the beds are comfortable, and the view is particularly excellent - our young children loved watching the turkey vultures ride thermals over the river every evening. The owner was extremely friendly and responsive. We would definitely say here again.
