Healdsburg house description

"The Old River House has an old world charm, with hand-hewn beams and many more classic elements. The three story home has fabulous views and decks on each level overlooking the water. There's an outdoor dining area with views, a Weber gas grill, a river view hot tub, two kayaks, a hammock for year round enjoyment on a covered deck, a game room with games and puzzles, and WiFi high speed internet. The home has romantic river views, and an old-time charm. The knotty pine vaulted great room has soaring ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace and is wonderful gathering place, with comfortable leather sofas circling the fire. There are hand hewn beams, antique hardware, and period construction that give you a enjoyable step back in time. The kitchen is well stocked, and has a breakfast table with fantastic river views. We have games in the game room and a relaxing hammock on the lower covered deck. The home provides a rare opportunity to enjoy the vacation pleasures of a by-gone era, but with all the contemporary upgrades needed to ensure a wonderfully comfortable stay. The three bedrooms have queen size beds and a game room with a comfortable futon bed. All have fine linens.
Activities and Adventure: There are activities to interest all ages & tastes, from winery tours, to hiking, biking, golf, swimming, kayaking, soaking in the hot tub, just relaxing, or watching wildlife from the deck. In town, there's the historic Healdsburg Plaza, with shaded benches and a gazebo.On a covered deck overlooking the river is an inviting hammock, a perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon. For those looking for outdoor adventure and family fun, we offer two kayaks for exploring the river. Or try swimming, fishing from the dock for native wild steelhead and coho salmon, or take a leisurely float trip downstream 45 minutes into Healdsburg. We are located just outside the city limits of Healdsburg, in the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country, & enjoy frontage on the upper Russian River, where the water is clear & the river uncrowded for great family fun & outdoor adventure opportunities.
Nostalgia and Charm: The home is a charming and nostalgic river front summer home built in the 1930's. It retains its original character and charm, and offers an enjoyable step back in time, while carefully providing contemporary amenities and conveniences for a perfectly comfortable stay.
Perfect choice: Location, Togetherness, Relaxation: The perfect location, close in, but seemingly far away. (Incredibly close to everything, but private, serene, and unspoiled. Situated less than a one minute drive from Healdsburg.) The perfect choice for getting away to be together - to bond and reconnect with family and friends. (Spread out over three stories. Find activities to interest every taste and age group, even a trunk full of nostalgic puzzles, games, and toys for children.) The perfect recipe for relaxation, to recharge one's personal batteries. (Try lazing in the year 'round hammock on a covered view deck. Sink into incredibly soft and comfortable leather sofas by the fire. Or, sit and gaze at the diamond-like sparklets dancing where rapids tumble over the rocks.)

                      About: 'Wine Country Lodge's history in Sonoma County started with its founder, Lisa Neisingh. Lisa was raised in Sonoma County, where she enjoyed vacations with her family at their riverfront cabin on Healdsburg’s Fitch Mountain and where she learned to swim with her cousins in the Russian River. Wanting to continue to share similar getaway experiences for additional families and friends, she bought Old River in 2006 as Wine Country Lodges’ third riverfront vacation home. Sharing Healdsburg’s historic riverfront with others has been our goal in creating a relaxing environment conducive to memory making get-togethers. Old River Lodge has been hosting visitors on the river ever since. Old River Lodge is known for its wonderful views, excellent river location and authentic, 'old', river lodge charm. Wine Country Lodges continues in the tradition of welcoming guests and is now owned and managed by Lisa’s children Jared B Pickrell and Jill E. Jensen. Our families enjoy filling these wonderful riverfront homes with comfortable furnishings, relaxing amenities, and providing a choice of many adventurous and leisurely activities for our guests to choose from. We Look Forward to Welcoming You to Healdsburg’s Riverfront Wine Country.

                      Why Healdsburg:
                      'Lisa was searching for a rustic riverfront getaway - the kind she remembered as a child - a place to go with family and friends and leave the cares of the world behind! She wanted it not too fussy so it would have that 'relaxing' feeling and wanted it to be waterfront, with plenty of beautiful views and fun water activities. When Old River became available, Lisa knew it was the perfect property and addition to Wine Country Lodges collection of riverfront vacation homes.
