A few notables:

· 50 Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard with complimentary 'hands on' tours available. A dining table for 20 in the middle of the vineyard (i.e. for Wedding rehearsal dinners)
· A 10-person Hydrotherapy Spa atop a large deck with a 10 mile views of the ranch.
· Ranch casual 'Frisbee Golf course' 9 holes (Groomed May thru October); Please bring 175 gram 'Ultimate Frisbee' brand Frisbees - and not 'Discs' (the course is shorter than a regulation 'Disc Golf Course')
· Wine tasting through the Dry Creek Valley.
· Visit the Pacific Ocean and the small towns that dot the coast - just 13 miles from the Ranch.

Lastly, feel free to bring/hire your own 'cook or chef', or have your group do their own.

                      Year Purchased: 1962

                      About: Welcome to the most beautiful Ranch in California! My wife and I are the Property Managers of this spectacular ranch and live in the Caretaker Cottage... close enough to help in every way... but you will rarely see us unless you call. We give groups all the privacy they need. Our service is reflected in our Yelp reviews. Please don't ever hesitate to call on us if we can help in anyway during your stay.

                      Why Healdsburg:
                      This ranch will feel like 'Yours' - you will be the only guests here. You will have exclusivity to the houses and grounds. There is a lot of History here on this Ranch too. A wealthy business man built these houses in 1938. Mr. Hedgpeth invented and sold tools to Sears and Roebuck in Chicago. Our Cattle Rancher - was born on this ranch 80 years ago - and his father managed the several hundred head of cattle before him. This is a 'working ranch'.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
                      Discover the many peaks, valleys and rivers. Picnic spots abound. The Vineyard, or at the largest Redwood tree in Sonoma County. The 20 acre lake is spring fed... so it is very clear. We recently built a dock/pier... its a great place to swim. Feel free to bring your mountain bike too - there are miles and miles of trails.
