Overview

Sonoma County House Rental Photos and Description

2+ BR, 2 BA, 50 Acres, Views, Huge Deck, 10 Mins to Healdsburg & Wineries.

Mill Creek is a mid-century modern home with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Just 10 minutes from Healdsburg square, it is completely private on 50 acres filled with Redwoods and Madrones. It's like being in your own secluded park.

The house has a complete, remodeled kitchen stocked with everything you need to cook a great meal. There are 2 remodeled bathrooms and a huge, furnished deck. Sit out, eat out, grill out, enjoy the privacy and views of the redwoods, madrones and mountain ridge. The huge stone fireplace uses BioFuel sparing the environment and producing great heat. Bring your music and stream to the built in sound system, or watch DirecTV on the 55' TV. The beds are great as are the sheets and comforters.

Hike our private trails, relax on the enormous deck, or take in the many wineries that are less than 10 minutes from the front gate. If you like biking, explore our street, Westside Road and West Dry Creek Road. Feel like getting wet? Rent a canoe and go out on Russian River. Wind down on the deck in complete privacy.

Healdsburg is just 10 minutes from the house and offers world class dining, shops and wine tasting. Our manual includes a list of our favorites. Great food stores and more are just 9 minutes from the house.

DRIVEWAY NOTE: Our home is on a hillside. The driveway is paved but contains curves and one switchback. Most drivers handle the driveway easily, but it is windy and steep. Please use caution, especially when wet.

SMOKING NOTE: Our home and property are completely non-smoking. Smoking is not permitted in the house or anywhere on the property.

It's hard to find complete comfort and privacy so close to Healdsburg and Wineries. Enjoy!

Beautiful place in the tree tops

  • 5 of 5

Talk about peaceful and relaxing, this is the place. Located at the top of a mountain along a winding road, with the tops of trees and view of other mountains is all you see from the beautiful floor to ceiling windows!

Jeff & Eric's place is well kept and well stocked. Both of the bedrooms had very comfortable beds and pillows. It was nice crawling under the fluffy down comforters each night.

We enjoyed having a fire in the fireplace each night and morning, so easy to do, just pour in the Bio-fuel and light it. Believe it or not it does warm the room.

Wish we would have had time to explore however it rained on day of arrival and other day spent doing Dry Creek Valley Passport wineries.

Thank you Jeff and Eric for your place and we would definitely stay again.

Just a side note, if anyone knocks at the door late at night looking for the Red Hair tiny house, it is at the bottom of the hill across the pond.

Woodsy Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend stay beginning of April. The reviews about the driveway are on point; it is somewhat scary especially in the rain/dark to navigate, but totally worth it for the house at the top of the hill. Being up in the treetops with the sounds of nature was amazingly peaceful. The house was perfect for us (two 30yr old couples) with the 2 full baths and big bedrooms - the king in the master was very comfortable. We especially appreciated that the house was stocked to cook - all spices, oils, condiments, trash bags, cookware, pans, Tupperware, dishwashing liquid, sponges, paper goods etc. were provided. We made breakfast each morning (coffee maker, too) and grilled the first night. The porch is a lovely hang out spot though the mosquitos were a pest since it was rainy/wet most of our weekend. We played lots of cards and listened to music through the air play system. The cell service is pretty much non-existent, but the Wi-Fi was decent. The town square, Safeway grocery store and multiple wineries are very accessible while the house felt very remote. We'd definitely come back!

Hilltop Dream Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely house in the woods for 6 weeks in January/February 2016 with our Aussie dog & thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our favorite time of the day was sitting on the deck & enjoying the forest scenery & the quietness of the surroundings. The walk up & down the paved driveway was a treat & our dog loved it. The house was spotless clean with a wonderful modern kitchen that was so easy to cook in. The beds were very comfy with nice linens. The location was convenient to Healdsburg, Santa Rosa & surrounding wineries. Eric got us set up & was very nice to deal with. We are well-seasoned travelers & HIGHLY recommend staying at this location & hope to return. Retirees from Kentucky

Secluded with great views yet close to Healdsburg

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here over the Christmas holidays and loved the place. The home is perched atop a hill and has magnificent views throughout the day as the large windows face south towards the sun/bottom of the hill. Kitchen is well equipped as we managed to make a number of holiday meals during our time there. The driveway was a bit challenging to navigate the first time but primarily because we arrived well after sunset. There aren't any reflectors on the side of the road so if you arrive at night for your stay, you have to be very careful. The hairpin and few sharp turns are very difficult to see at night when you aren't familiar with the road. That said, once we had traversed it once, it was a piece of cake...even at night...so it shouldn't deter you from your stay. I would just recommend making sure that you first arrive during the day time if at all possible.

What a fantastic spot!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Eric and Jeff for sharing your beautiful property! Everything was easy, went perfectly, and we had a great time. We enjoyed the wineries, food, peace and serenity of the area. We did hike some of trails mentioned in the listing - what an incredible property. We also loved the sunrise and sunset views of the valley from the deck!

Picturesque and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

The moment you walk into this home all the stress falls away. Stunning is the best word to describe the view from this very clean, well maintained home. The floor to ceiling windows in the main room allow spectacular forest views all around, and the space is very well-suited for a party of 4-6 (the couches are deep and wide and would allow sleeping for one person easily). As the other posters have commented, the drive is windy and pretty narrow, but the picturesque views and complete tranquility are well worth it - it's probably the most quiet place I've ever been. I'd recommend driving up the hill in daylight at least the first day to familiarize yourself with the path. Our entire group agreed that we'd come back to this home for any future visits, and recommend to family and friends. Some people may find the distance from town (about 10 minutes) lengthy for going back and forth, but we felt it was worth it.
