Cozy cabin in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Had a great experience here with friends for a long weekend. The house itself was nice, very quaint and cute with plenty of books and trinkets to explore. Bathrooms were average, showers were very small. Kitchen was fully equipped which was nice for cooking big dinners. One huge benefit of this house that I didn't see mentioned specifically in the home listing is that it backs up directly to the river with a private cabana and river access. This was great since our group wanted to spend all day in the river and hanging out in the sun. Conversely one difficulty we had (which I find all too common to rentals on these sites) was accessing the separate downstairs bedroom. But Carren was very helpful and sent over the contractor to get us in right away. All in all I'd go back again for a quiet and rejuvenating weekend in the woods!

Perfect for our weekend

  • 5 of 5

The Healdsburg Riverfront Retreat was clean, quaint, inviting, and cozy. It was perfect for a weekend getaway for us and our grown children (and two dogs). The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of room to gather before heading out for wine tasting. The weather wasn't conducive to using the river but it was beautiful to walk down and see it. It's not fancy but the owners have thought of everything to make you feel at home. We recommend it.

Comfortable and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Great house on the river! This rental was just as described, a cozy cabin on the river. Very clean and accomodating, and easy communication with the owners, no problems at all. Easy access to the river, great for a few couples w/ or w/o pets. Awesome deck to relax on after a day full of wine tasting. It is a few miles from Healdsburg square so it was convenient to have a car and driver. Would definitely stay here again!

Perfect Weekend at the River!

  • 5 of 5

Another perfect weekend at the river! We have rented this cottage every summer for the past 9 years and it is as wonderful as ever. Cozy, well maintained, excellent location. We spent the bulk of each day either down on the riverbank or on the expansive deck. We did manage to tear ourselves away from the river for a couple of forays into Healdsburg and to Geyserville for wine tasting, but the river is so enticing it is hard to leave. A grand weekend was had by all. Already looking forward to next year's stay!

A very relaxing Healdsburg Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with another couple and a very good friend like to get away for relaxing weekends. This cottage turned out to be the ideal place to do this. The large main deck, that looks out toward the Russian River, provided a great place to sit and do nothing. The cottage is very well equipped, and is very clean and well-maintained. We met for lunch at the Bear Republic Pub, and had an excellent meal, with a few dynamite craft ales. For dinner, we tried something different and went to Café Licia, which is Portuguese. and is excellent. Overall a great time was had by all.

Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I spent a perfect Labor Day weekend at this house celebrating my 40th birthday with friends who flew in from NY and Vancouver. Not one of us was disappointed; as a matter of fact, the house exceeded our expectations. I find Healdsburg to be the ideal location when basing yourself in wine country. We went skydiving in Cloverdale on the day of my birthday, wine tasting in Sonoma County throughout that weekend, plenty of lunch and dinner and drink options at the Healdsburg square; but I think our best day was the day we just spent having brunch on the lovely deck then relaxing in the palapa by the river, or floating on the water. The house is big enough to accommodate a group or family comfortably and privately (loved my private unit down the stairs!) and we didn't lack for anything as far as supplies and cookware. I am looking forward to spending more weekends at this perfect house by the river. Highly recommended. Thank you, Jessica and owners!!
