Healdsburg estate description
A gated, exclusive and private riverfront estate in the heart of Healdsburg, Sonoma County Wine Country. Riverstone Ranch is just 2 miles from historic Healdsburg Plaza, a short drive to 90+ wineries, Lake Sonoma, Old Town Windsor, Sonoma County airport, and an easy drive to the Pacific Ocean.
The estate has gone through a complete renovation in every house, including the Queen Anne, The Coop and the Oak Tree House, as well as the gardens and property grounds and decking.
THE QUEEN ANNE, late 1800s, is a legacy Queen Anne Victorian with 3 bedrooms. The master bedroom suite has fireplace, king bed, and access to the veranda. The two upstairs guest bedrooms each have their own queen bed and bathroom. One has access to its own balcony.
A remodeled gourmet kitchen offers gas cook top and ovens, fireplace, patio access, and dining area.
Walking from the kitchen to the living area, our guests pass a remodeled half bathroom with hand-painted murals, formal dining room, and finally enter the formal living room and drawing room, featuring hardwood floors, sofas and chairs.
The brick patio is extensive with plenty of outdoor seating, gas grill, hot tub, fountain and pond, a beautiful newly sodded lawn, oak and redwood trees, crushed granite walkways, beautiful new decking with river views, and a vintage Sonoma water tower.
THE OAK TREE HOUSE is a storybook cottage with one bedroom featuring a queen bed, a extra room with trundle bed, and one bath. The kitchen has been updated with new appliances and counter tops, and the beloved oak tree still rises from floor to ceiling. Guests will enjoy the circular dining area with glass windows and doors offering vineyard views. There is a deck with table and chairs to relax in the evening or have your morning coffee while listening to the birds and sounds of nature around you.
THE COOP is a charming cottage with two bedrooms, each with its own queen bed and private bath. It has a small kitchen, sitting area, and private deck.
The vacation rental includes The Queen Anne and either The Oak House or The Coop (a total of 5 bedrooms). Or, for groups wishing exclusivity, the entire estate can be rented, which will include conference table and chairs in 'The Office Building' on the estate.
Caveat. Country estates such as this offer guests a unique opportunity to experience the Sonoma Wine Country, but they are not hotels. Agricultural work at nearby vineyards is occasionally noisy and performed at night. You may hear the sound of a wedding at nearby Healdsburg Country Gardens. All the elements of a country estate are present, including deer, foxes, hawks, mosquitoes, bees, wasps, and poison oak. Some areas on the estate are rugged and steep. There is no beach, nor safe access to the river. Children need to be watched at all times.

If happiness could be described in two words, they would be Riverstone Ranch. My girlfriends and I embarked on a much needed wine country escape. We were drawn to the property based on the beautiful pictures posted on VRBO. I can say with all certainty, the photos do not do the estate the justice it deserves. Located just minutes from the charm of downtown Healdsburg, Riverstone Ranch is tucked away, in its own private sanctuary, surrounded by oak, fruit and palm trees, impeccably manicured landscaping, and the most charming houses - all nestled up above the Russian River. The entire property was recently renovated – from our estimation, nothing was spared. While maintaining the integrity and the charm of the historic buildings, the owner was able to add modern conveniences and state of the art technology without interrupting the soul of the property. In addition, the decoration was charming and understated. The amenities provided – chef’s kitchen, washer and dryer, outdoor games (ping pong, cornhole), wireless internet, bbq, ample parking – had all the conveniences of home. Since there were only a few of us, we made the Queen Anne base camp. I was fortunate enough to snag the master bedroom – waking up to the sound of the fountain and the birds was magical. Each bedroom/bathroom throughout the property was adorned with plush linens and high end bath products. Two of the girls stayed in the Coop and said the sound of the river lulled them to sleep each night. Although we didn’t have any children with us, I was impressed by the amenities provided – pack n play, inflatable kids pool, etc. We found ourselves torn between exploring wine county and exploring the property. Seeing as we weren’t expecting such an magnificent estate, we made plans to wine taste most of each day with lunch and dinner reservations on each end. After the first night, we ended up scrapping most of our plans so we could enjoy all amenities of Riverstone Ranch. In fact, each night after dinner, we rushed back to the house to sit around the fire pit to make s’mores and use the hot tub. In addition, we nixed brunch plans, twice, to instead make breakfast and enjoy sitting on the patio, and sunbathe on the lawn. Our only mistake was only staying for four days. I highly recommend Riverstone Ranch to anyone looking to escape reality for a bit. Due to its size, it’s perfect for multiple families, reunions, retreats, etc. We’ve committed to coming back annually, i
