                          Why the Owner Chose Healdsburg:
                          Our property which includes our home & our 3 vacation homes is just a 4 minute drive or 20 minute power walk to Healdsburg Plaza. We love small towns with a village center. Previously we lived in Saratoga and Capitola, CA. So, we knew a town like Healdsburg was perfect for us. When we travel, location is everything. We chose our property because it was in the country but a perfect location for us and our guests. Close to everything and a beautiful setting. We're surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards...what a great place to wake up every morning. We offer affordable lodging--our guests can dine in or zip into town to a restaurant.

Taking a walk through the vineyards any time of day is a treat. We pack picnics and have lunch and play bocce ball at wineries that are just 10 minutes away. We love the great restaurants in town when we treat ourselves to dinner out. And, we enjoy meeting our guests, telling them about our grape growing adventures and sharing ideas on enjoying our wine country - Healdsburg. So many of our guests come to stay here again and again.
