Healdsburg house description

"Riverwood is an impressive residence with a spectacular riverfront setting, just outside the city limits of Healdsburg. Guests remark about its comfortable furnishings, upscale rustic decor, wonderfully spacious floor plan, outstanding cleanliness, high quality appointments, true riverfront location with a private beach and kayaks, spa and sauna; plus its central location to all wine country attractions, and, additionally, its excellent customer service.

This beautiful Wine Country Vacation Home lies hidden at the crossroads of some of the most prized wine producing valleys in the world, and as close as 5 minutes (1.5 Mile) to Healdsburg's charming, historic Plaza, which is the hub of all the excitement surrounding this World Class Wine Producing Region. 'Riverwood' enjoys a beautiful, private riverfront setting - away from all traffic noise and urban sights and sounds. The stunning riverfront location offers views of lush green mountains, sparkling water, and it's own private beach. Large wrap-around covered decks provide the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors year 'round, and are furnished for dining and lounging. The very spacious interior has open beamed pine ceilings and an impressive dining room. From the moment you arrive and begin enjoying the aroma of tall cedars and listening to the babbling of the rapids, you'll know you've come to the right place to relax and unwind. There's the impression of being 'far away' but in reality you are only 2.4 miles from the closest wineries, with nearly 90 more within a 15 minute drive! You're in the ideal getaway location where you can enjoy privacy and unwind, while being just a mile or two from all the exciting activity in this World Class wine producing region.
At Riverwood, guests will find many choices of places to gather for conversation. This lovely, spacious home has a comfortable circle of leather sofas surrounding the stone fireplace and log mantle. The grand size dining room with its large custom dining table and views of the river, creates the perfect environment for an unforgettable dining experience. In the kitchen guests enjoy a charming atmosphere and riverview, great rustic furnishings, and a Heartland Range (a high-end contemporary range hidden in a classic reproduction). There are things to impress and delight at every turn. Overlooking the beach and passing canoes you will find the hot tub - the perfect place to soak and unwind. The cedar sauna (the same top-of-the-line model from Sunlight Sauna as demonstrated by Dr. Oz on Oprah's Show on longevity)is enjoyed by guests, and sits overlooking the river. There are kayaks, a hot and cold outdoor shower, a huge recreation room with an indoor ping pong table.
The mattresses and bedding at Riverwood have been carefully chosen with our guests' comfort in mind. We offer three king bed rooms with new Cal-King mattresses, as well as rooms with very comfortable queen and full size beds. We have many sleeping options and can accommodate groups of singles with individual beds for 8, as well. There are three bathrooms, and a full size washer and dryer. We take care to provide something to interest every age and activity level, with a library of travel and nature books, board games, a checkers table, videos, beach inflatables, log bench swing, round lounger, picnic table under the trees, fishing poles and tackle (licenses required), two kayaks, life preservers, passes to the upscale Park Point Health Club in Healdsburg with heated lap and children's pools, our own restaurant guides with menus and pricing, shopping information, information on wine tasting at local wineries, and maps and brochures to help our guests explore everything this bountiful area has to offer.

Interesting trivia: Riverwood Lodge was formerly the vacation home of the Oakland Raider's Super Bowl winning coach, Ollie Spencer. Here he entertained friends and the Super Bowl trophy was on display in the great room.

Here are the comments from a recent guest. 'A Perfect Getaway'
'A wonderful house for a reunion with old friends! We came together here for a weekend, and immediately settled into absolute comfort. It was great for relaxing, cooking, and playing games, and served as a perfect home base for forays into Healdsburg (beautiful!) and the surround wine country (delicious!).
The management was clear and responsive, the value outstanding, and the house itself impeccably well-kept and lovely. We'll surely return to this perfect getaway.'

                  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 share those sorts of memorable experiences with her family and others, she bought Riverwood, her second riverfront home in Healdsburg, in 2005. Riverwood Lodge was a vacation home previously owned by Ollie Spencer, (a former Super Bowl winning coach of the San Francisco 49ers) and enjoys an exceptional river location and grand accommodations. The Spencer's architect added impressive additions to the original 1930's home, and Lisa continued the improvements, making additions and adding upscale rustic furnishings and decor. Since opening its doors in 2005, we have been inviting guests to enjoy this lovely home and beautiful riverfront setting. 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 Jensen. Our family enjoys filling these wonderful riverfront homes with comfortable furnishings, relaxing amenities, and providing an array of adventurous and leisurely activities for our guests to enjoy. We Look Forward to Welcoming You to Healdsburg’s Riverfront Wine Country.

                  Why Healdsburg:
                  The location of this spacious home was ideal. It sits at yet another spectacular riverfront location and just a half mile from our first riverfront vacation home in Healdsburg, Firefly Lodge.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Spectacular Riverfront Wine Country Vacation Home lies hidden at the crossroads of some of the most prized wine producing valleys in the world, and as close as three minutes to Healdsburg's charming, historic Plaza Square.
