Beautiful home with a great view. Great location to town
We had quite an interesting stay at Fitch Mountain due to the Kincaid fire. The property manager called me the night before we flew in to let me know that the power was off and that it was supposed to return the afternoon on the day we arrived. That was fine with us, as we took our time getting to the house from the airport. I had to ask the property manager a few times for the door code to enter the house, as there were no check in instructions provided. There indeed was no power when we arrived, but not a big deal as we were ready for bed when we got there. We had windows open that night and the smoke came in strong during the night and there was ash on the car in the morning (and still no power). We left for the day and when we came back in the evening, the power was on. The next day, however, the area was put under mandatory evacuation so we left. Initially (when power was out, smoke was strong) the owner was not going to provide any sort of refund but did end up working with us due to the mandatory evacuation since we had to stay elsewhere. This was very much appreciated!
The town of Healdsberg seemed very cute but we just didn't have much time to see or explore it, given the circumstances. I will note that while the town is only a couple miles away, the property is up in the mountains and the roads are pretty narrow to get there (i.e., not a quick and easy drive from town). The property itself has a nice view but is a bit worn on the inside. Again, we didn't really end up spending a lot of time there. Beds were comfortable. As many other reviewers note, the bathrooms being in the basement and the master being on the top floor is a bit of an issue.
So...it's challenging to review for such a crazy weekend. We hope to enjoy a more relaxed stay in the Sonoma area at some point in the future.
This review states that "there were no check-in instructions". I actually provide very detailed check-in instructions to all my guests. I include a map to my home, access information, a list of things to do in the area, a shopping guide, a dining guide, a winery map etc... I contacted this guest and she acknowledged that she had indeed received this information but forgot about it as I sent it well in advance of her stay. She tried to update her review but VRBO does not allow reviews to be edited, even to make corrections.
Had a great stay for my sons wedding- house was perfect and close to many areas of food river and entertainment- parking a bit tight for our large trucks but managed!!
Perfect weekend getaway!
We really enjoyed our stay. Healdsburg is a cute town with friendly locals. Great location. House was clean. There were plenty clean towels and fresh white linens. Peaceful neighborhood close to downtown.
terrific setting although three properties back from the river was a little unexpected
Wine Tasting, tubing, cycling, swimming, fishing, golfing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking .... You name it.
