Healdsburg cottage description

This cottage is a true retreat, it is one of the best priced homes on the river with scenic views and a large spa. The price is the same or lower than many other places across the street or up Fitch Mountain. It is truly a different experience to be on the river. The deck and dinning room have wonder views of the river and lots of natural light. Our house was built in 1928 and updated extensively in 1999 while keeping all the charm of a vintage river cottage. There are high ceilings, wood floors, knotty pine in the living room, a stone fireplace, enclosed sun porch and deck with wonderful river views. The river flows behind the house just a few steps away. A large 4 person hot tub is located under mature redwood trees. The house is near the end of a quiet street with very little traffic. There is a one car garage plus 1-2 parking places in the driveway.

This house is perfect size for 2 couples or a family with 2 to 3 children. The easy beach access makes it a fun place for children to enjoy the river. Take a float down the river, enjoy the scenery you may even see a few turtles and herons.

Besides the river there are many other activities for guest to enjoy, the Healdsburg Town Square is 3 miles away which offers shopping, fine dinning, theaters, bakeries, live concerts and a farmers market. Dry Creek, Alexander Valley and Russian River wine regions are just a short drive from the property.

The Villa Chanticleer, a wonderful facility for Weddings is less than a mile away on North Fitch Mt. Road.

The house will accommodate up to 6 people. If you are planning a wedding, family gathering or just have a larger group and need more room, the owners can refer you to additional rental properties on the same street. More details available on request.

Our area of Sonoma County is famous for it's wineries, tasting rooms and restaurants. Dry Creek and Alexander Valley are just a short drive from the house. In the summer the Russian River located behind the house provides lots of water activities including, rafting, canoeing, kayaking, swimming and fishing.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: My sister's and I were born in Healdsburg and learned to swim in the Russian River. Even after we moved away we made many trips to this area with our friends and family to enjoy the river. We rented many vacations homes along the Russian River from Guerneville to Healdsburg and this is our favorite spot. Our kids have fond memories of spending warm summer days on the beach behind this house looking for frogs, swimming, canoeing and rafting down the river. They named the beach 'Froggy Beach'. We always dreamed of owning our own place and now have this really great cottage on the river to enjoy and rent out to others. Our favorite activities are tubing, kayaking and canoeing down the river.

Why the Owner Chose Healdsburg:
This property is located on a great spot on the Russian River. There is a nice beach just a few steps away. The street is quiet with no through traffic. There are many large redwood trees that line the river and keep it cool in the summer. We have a large private spa and in the Summer a Gazebo set up across the river for you to use.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The views of the river and countryside from the back deck are fantastic. You can enjoy the large hot tub located in a secluded area under a grove of mature Redwood trees. The house has the charm of a vintage 1920's cabin but with all the comforts of home. Fine dinning and great wine tasting are located just a short drive away. Canoe and Kayak trips are available in town or go for a float off the beach behind the house. During the summer months we have inner tubes, noodles, ice chest, lounges, chairs and a beach umbrella you can take to the beach.
