Healdsburg house description

Firefly Lodge's spectacular setting, comfortable furnishings, upscale rustic decor, beautiful views, outstanding cleanliness, high quality appointments, private beach with kayaks, central location to all wine country attractions, and truly exceptional customer service.

Firefly offers upscale comfort, relaxation, peace and quiet. Situated in an ideal location to access all that Sonoma Wine Country has to offer, it's just a mile outside Healdsburg, which has been referred to as the 'Belle of the Wine Country Ball'. Guests are close to all the exciting venues in Wine Country, yet feel worlds apart from the crowds. Enjoy boating, swimming, adventure, and even wildlife viewing, in this beautiful, natural setting.

This rustically elegant cedar home is limited to 8 overnight guests, plus children under three. There are two bedrooms with king size beds, a bedroom with a queen bed, and a suite of two rooms with queen beds, a daybed/trundle unit in the recreation room, and also a baby Pack 'n Play. This two story home has two bathrooms and an outdoor, hot and cold shower with river views. Firefly is just one of our four beautiful, vacation homes located in Healdsburg. For information on the others, please call or visit our website for photos.

.... Share cozy gatherings around the river rock fireplace with friends. Sink into soft leather sofas, and enjoy private views of the Russian River, or venture out into one of the kayaks and paddle the afternoon away.

.... Firefly is just minutes from Healdsburg, with its tree shaded, historical, central plaza, around which everything in this part of wine country revolves. Stroll to acclaimed restaurants, charming shops, art galleries, winery tasting rooms. From Firefly Lodge it's only a 4 mile drive to world-class vineyards in three distinct wine growing regions(Alexander, Dry Creek and Russian River Valleys), and only two miles to the Healdsburg Golf Club.

.... The home has a chef-pleasing, contemporary kitchen, a large dining table, a covered deck for comfortable outdoor dining, and a Weber gas BBQ for grilling.

.... Firefly's river's edge location is one of the choicest spots around for spectacular views and unspoiled beauty. Enjoy the private beach with excellent swimming and boating, in season. We even provide two kayaks for your use. Or choose to lounge in the riverview hot tub.

... Sleep peacefully on rustic log beds with high quality, pillow-top mattresses and soft white linens.

.... Firefly Lodge's casual, rustic elegance, spectacular location,
and careful provision for its guests' comfort and enjoyment, make it
an incredible wine country getaway.

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About: Wine Country Lodge's owner, Lisa Neisingh, was raised in Sonoma County, where she enjoyed vacations with her family at a summer home near Occidental. Wanting to share similar getaway experiences with her children and others, she bought Firefly Lodge in 2003, in the vicinity of her great grandparents' home at Healdsburg's historic river resort, Camp Rose. Soon after, Lisa, she bought three, additional, nearby riverfront homes, and has been inviting guests ever since. The homes are elegant, rustic residences, that are both casual and eye appealing. Each home comfortably accommodates guests seeking a place to gather for a memorable retreats with family and friends. The very restful, natural settings offer guests a welcome respite from urban life. Each home enjoys an incredibly beautiful and unspoiled natural environment. Lisa enjoys filling these wonderful riverfront settings with comfortable furnishings, beautiful amenities, and the opportunity to enjoy a choice of many adventurous and leisurly activities, to the delight of guests.

                          Why Healdsburg:
                          I was searching for a rustic riverfront getaway - the kind I remembered as a child - a place o go with family and friends and leave the cares of the world behind! I wanted it not too fussy so it would have that 'relaxing' feeling. I wanted it to be waterfront, with plenty of beautiful views and fun water activities. I wanted it to have a big, covered deck, and plenty of room around the table. I looked for a LONG time, and when I finally found Firefly, I felt, 'This is it!', and the family fun began!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The covered, river view deck is perfect for year 'round outdoor enjoyment and dining. The views from the deck are wonderful, and the water is so close you can see the fish swimming. The river is slower and more lake-like in this location, making it a perfect spot for summertime fun. In the winter the warm glow of the river rock fireplace, the comfort of the soft leather sofas, and the fantastic views of the rushing river make this a wonderful choice for a cozy winter getaway.
