Sonoma County Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This Cottage on Fitch Mountain is a perfect retreat for a couple or a small family. Recently fully renovated, the cottage offers modern comforts and sleek style distinctly influenced by its mid-century roots.

Centrally located for a wine country vacation yet only a five minute walk from the Russian River, three miles from the Healdsburg Plaza and less than 10 minutes away from wine tasting in the Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley and Dry Creek Valley.

This cottage was originally built as a vacation home on the Russian River. The entire building was renovated to modern standards then decorated in a classic 1940s theme. It retains the charm and feel of a country vacation rental with modern conveniences. The cottage has easy access to the River, the Healdsburg Plaza and the surrounding wine area.

The cottage has an open living and dining room, one bedroom, one bath and a full kitchen. The kitchen has a gas stove and modern appliances. The dining room has an oversized table with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy a meal, a game or to plan the next day's adventure. The living room of this vacation rental is furnished with a leather sofa and a leather loveseat and several large ottomans to curl up in for conversation or to enjoy a movie on Netflix.

The master bedroom has a luxuriously comfortable queen sized bed and classic mid century era antiques. The bathroom sports classic white subway and hex tiles and a claw foot tub.

Upstairs is a sleeping loft with a full sized bed and library area with low ceilings. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer and a patio with a picnic table out back. The front porch has a semi-private enclosed sitting area.

The house is designed for two people but there is room for a couple of kids upstairs in the sleeping loft. On one side of the loft is a library with a comfy reading chair. The other side has a full sized futon bed on a sleeping platform.

With more space, more privacy and more amenities, make your own breakfast, pack a picnic for the afternoon and fix a romantic dinner with fresh produce found in our local markets. This Healdsburg vacation rental is a comfortable home base for your Wine Country vacation.

Why Monique chose Sonoma County

The location is perfect for a wine country vacation. Fitch Mountain is cooler at night and the easy river lifestyle is perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. The cottage is only a few minutes from wine tasting, the Plaza and everything Healdsburg.

What makes this cottage unique

We love to enjoy the vacation atmosphere of staying on Fitch Mountain. We especially enjoy the front porch and walking down to enjoy the river. In the summer, we love to take our nieces and nephews to swim and play in the river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

*** Review copied as published on another booking site ***

Owners were very nice people to deal with. Great location for touring that part of wine country. Cottage was very well equipped. Slept soundly every night.

If I say too much good about the place I'm afraid they will raise the rates when they realize what a value it is.

Perfect weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my best friend whom I see only once or twice a year. This cottage was the perfect size and in a great location; a little far from the plaza but we never had problems parking. Everything was very clean and welcoming and John and Monique accommodated our request to check in early without hesitation. So nice to stay in a home rather than a hotel. Healdsburg is a perfect weekend getaway!

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a cute little cottage for a romantic getaway. It's very clean, and a nice blend between rustic and modernism. The small backyard features a BBQ, herbs and an outdoor shower. Needless to say we took advantage of it all.

The river itself is a short 5 minutes walk and although it was only mid-April, the weather was so hot that we took a dip and enjoyed the tranquility of the area. For dinner and brunch we went to nearby Healdsburg and wineries.

We loved it. It was exactly what we needed to relax from our SF daily city life.

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely cottage and location. It is well- furnished & equipped, and very comfortable. We were in Healdsburg for a family party and it was so nice to have our own retreat that wasn't a hotel room. Our 20 something daughter and her girlfriend loved it too. The cottage is great for couples of any age, families with kids 5-12 years old, (maybe not teenagers) girls getaway, nature lovers. Old Redwood Rd gets a bit narrow and windy, but a good way to get to the cabin to see the beauty of the area. Once you are settled though, the back road in & out is the way to go. It is an easier road to drive and takes you to the north end of town. We would definitely stay again! Sorry for the late review- we were there in the summer. Thank you again Monique andJohn.

Great couple getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Healdsburg River Cottage. It was a nice getaway weekend for us (while our children stayed at Grandma and Grandpa's). The cottage was the perfect size for the two of us. Nicely updated and very cozy. We did minimal cooking, but the kitchen seemed well stocked. Nice spacious laundry room for a small-sized cottage. We enjoyed a walk to the river and a beautiful bike ride during our stay. It was a bit of a climb on the bike to get to and from the cottage (up and down a hill) but we managed fine. A short distance from town. It took us some time to get used to the air mattress on the bed (each side of the bed can be adjusted to the firmness desired). We had one episode of a clogged toilet (on septic), but the owner was quick to respond and was very helpful. Just might consider a larger plunger (the small one in the cottage was hard to use).
