Healdsburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)


ENJOY...a fabulous vacation with old man river, at the RiverHouse, where the Redwoods meet the Russian River. With direct river access and its own private beach, this very special riverfront home is located just minutes from downtown Healdsburg, yet a world away, nestled on a wooded knoll on North Fitch Mountain, safely above the river.

The RiverHouse is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, newly renovated home, inside and out, with a new deluxe queen LA-Z-BOY sleeper sofa with an up-graded ‘air-comfort’ mattress, accommodating up to 8 guests and is child friendly. This lovely cottage also has central heat, a wall-mounted A/C, and hardwood oak flooring. With a wood-burning fireplace and skylight, the living room provides a cozy seating area with the new sofa (bed) and 2 comfy loveseats, a wall mounted 42” flat screen TV with cable, a new Sony blu-ray player, a Sony iPod dock, and WiFi internet access.

The kitchen and dining room with a fan/light combo over the table, are bright and airy with a skylight, river views, and a new slider, opening to the patio with stainless steel BBQ, and river deck. Fully equipped for your cooking enjoyment, the kitchen has a new beautiful ceramic tile in earth tones with new bead board cabinets and wainscoting, and new countertops. There are brand new appliances including a Bertazzoni professional stainless steel 4-burner range with built-in microwave and hood above, Bosch stainless steel dishwasher, a beautiful new Kohler white, porcelain, farmhouse sink, butcher block island, some Calphalon and All-Clad pots and pans, and a new stainless steel Kitchenaid fridge over freezer combo, along with dishes, glassware, flatware, blender, toaster, coffeemaker and grinder, pantry essentials, and more. The 3 bedrooms are appointed with queen beds, new luscious linens, pillows and bedding, clock/CD players and end tables with lamps. Both showers are newly tiled. An indoor laundry room with washer and dryer, as well as an ironing board and iron are also provided. The Master bedroom has new hardwood flooring, newly remodeled bathroom with white ceramic tile, new pedestal sink, new commode, and a beautiful new matching shower with rainforest showerhead. The shared bath has a new single sinked vanity and new toilet, as well.

This special, redwood fenced property is private and serene, with a new double carport inside the fence, which can also be used as a shaded sitting and/or play area. Abundant outdoor amenities include beautiful landscaping, a redwood deck with a 6-person Sundance Hydrotherapy spa under the mature Redwoods, new round table and chairs for 6 with umbrella, as well as 2 chaises and 2 chairs with ottomans, overlooking the river. There are new outdoor uplights which light up the Redwood canopy, as well as downlights for enjoying the outdoors in the evenings. Follow the beautiful handmade rock stairway down to your own private beach with a 2 person kayak (for seasonal use and for guests with experience). Life vests are provided and river shoes are recommended for comfort and safety, while enjoying the river.

Day passes to the Parkpoint Health and Swim Club are available for $15/day for adults, $10/day for children 10-16, and $6/day for children 9 and under. This premier club has it all, with heated lap, aqua exercise, and children’s pool; weight and exercise machines; exercise, yoga, and pilates classes; all styles of massage; snack bar; etc.

Perfect weekend in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several different homes in Healdsburg, and the Riverhouse in the Redwoods is by far our favorite. Such a comfortable home in a perfect setting. We spent most of our time relaxing on the big deck watching the river. It felt very private with the large trees around the perimeter. We felt safe letting our dog roam as the property was fully fenced. The interior of the house was super comfortable and clean, and the kitchen was well stocked with cookware, etc. and had a wonderful view!! Lots of extra towels too, which is always a plus! The owners clearly take pride in their home and it is appreciated......we'll see you again soon!

Great place to stay in wine country

  • 5 of 5

The back deck on this house is what made it so special to us! And the fireplace! The back deck and jacuzzi directly overlook the Russian River and it was decadent to be able to sit outside in April and enjoy the beauty of the River (despite a few pesky mosquitos this time of year -- so remember to bring bug spray)! Having a place like this to come home to after wine tasting all day was a highlight of our amazing long weekend in Healdsburg! Loved the home and will book it again!

Serenity Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have just finished a wonderful stay at the Riverhouse in the Redwoods. This is a home, not a cabin - with all amenities you could wish for. Clean and lovely bedrooms and bathrooms, with a well laid out kitchen. We had children, also one person with a walker and all were able to use the home with ease.

There are many delightful distractions in the town of Healdsburg; restaurants (don't miss Willie's or Wurst), antique shopping, wineries, biking etc. The children especially loved coming back and swimming at our own little beach and also up at Eagle Rock, could not pry me off that deck. To sit there in the shade of the trees, watching the River flow by, listening to the wind...pure bliss.

Great stay, can't wait to go back!

Riverhouse lives up to its name

  • 5 of 5

The 'Riverhouse in the Redwoods' was absolutely as promised! Location was easy to find and secluded while being very close to downtown (5 minute drive). Property came fully stocked with anything we could have needed including towels, toiletries, a kayak to enjoy the river, paper products - all we had to do was bring some food and our personal items. Property managers are very easy to communicate with and great at answer questions. Perfect house if you're looking to spend some quite relaxing time on/near the water up in Healdsburg.

A Fantastic Weekend! Best house in Healdsburg!

  • 5 of 5

thank you for a wonderful weekend! The cottage is lovely. Had a great time on the river, in the river and watching the river go by from the deck. This is our third rental on the River and by far the best! Would recommend it over any of the other two we have tried!

The owner was great to deal with. Everything went smoothly. House was just as lovely as in the photos, clean and had everything we could possibly need. We had three generations and all of us loved the entire experience and can't wait to go back!

The river made our weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Riverhouse over the July 4th weekend and couldn't have had a better time. The location is great, just a 10 minute drive from the center of Healdsburg but feels very secluded, and the house itself comfortably slept our 8 guests. What really made the weekend though, was the river. We spent every day down on the private beach, using the kayak out on the water and watching the endless groups of people float past us. In the evenings, we moved the party back up the hottub, by the grill. Overall, it was a great weekend - highly recommend the Riverhouse for anyone looking to get away for a weekend or longer, especially given its proximity to the center of town and the rest of wine country.

Tips: bring inner tubes and other things you want to use in the river (balls, rafts, etc); make sure to obtain the code for the padlock on the kayak from the owners; bring food to grill; it can be a little tough to find the first time but google maps will get you there; the phone signal at the house is adequate but a little weak, so bring a charger as your battery drains more quickly than usual; the house has wireless which is plenty fast for email and online downloads.
