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 10 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 on the river in Healdsburg. For information on the others, please call our friendly reservations staff or visit our website for detailed photos of all our properties.

.... 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.

At Wine Country Lodges, we've been inviting guests to enjoy these outstanding and unique pleasures of Sonoma County Wine Country since 2003, and have been consistently maintaining a 5 star rating.

We are located in Healdsburg, in the heart of Sonoma County Wine Country, and enjoy frontage on the upper Russian River, where the water is clear and the river uncrowded for great family fun and outdoor adventure opportunities. There are activities to interest all ages and 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, a gazebo for weekly summer concerts, fresh produce on farmers' market days, and paths for strolling; surrounded by charming boutique shops, highly respected restaurants with acclaimed chefs, antique shopping malls, art galleries, a theater, bicycle rentals, and tasting rooms with wine-food pairings. Surrounding the charming little city are World Class vineyards, wineries, and breathtaking vistas. Scenic country roads lead to ancient, giant redwood forests, Pacific Coast beaches, and natural hot springs.

Healdsburg has been described as the 'Belle of the Wine Country Ball', and to find out why, come and savor the experience. Travel beautiful wine roads to picturesque wineries, taste some of the finest wines in the world at their source, enjoy incredible cuisine prepared at highly rated restaurants by renown chefs, join popular annual events, shop in charming and unique stores, golf at one of the oldest and most scenic courses in Sonoma County. In summer, swimming, canoeing, and kayaking on the Russian River are a huge attraction. It's also just a scenic 45 minute drive to sandy coastal beaches to enjoy whale watching, tide pooling, or savoring fresh clam chowder. Only 30 minutes drive to visit ancient redwood groves at Armstrong Woods and Korbel Champagne Cellars for a wonderful guided tour. Passes are available to a Healdsburg health club with lap swimming and children's pools. The home is directly on the Russian River. Enjoy beautiful views, wildlife and unspoiled scenery.

 

Manager info

About: Wine Country Lodge's owner, Lisa Neisingh, was raised in Sonoma County, where she enjoyed vacations with her family at their summer home in 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 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. Our family enjoys filling these wonderful riverfront homes with comfortable furnishings, beautiful amenities, and the opportunity to enjoy a choice of many adventurous and leisurely 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 to 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! Now 11 years later we have shared this great home with thousands of guests from far and near and have made wonderful friends and memories, with many guests returning year after year.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
River Front Vacation Home, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10) Great River Location, Close to Downtown Healdsburg, World Class Wineries and Breathtaking Vineyards, Mountains and Valleys Growing Some of the Greatest Wine Grapes on Earth....
