Dry Creek Valley is a wonderful starting point for world-class bicycle tours at all levels. A six mile ride from home will take you on scenic West Dry Creek Road to Preston Farm and Vineyards for freshly baked bread, fermented treats of all kinds, fresh organic fruits and vegetables and lovely wine in a quirky, rustic and beautiful garden setting. A more strenuous ride can be had by heading up to Lake Sonoma and continuing a climb up into the Rockpile AVA, or through Alexander Valley (gorgeous) over to climb Pine Flat up into the Geysers. We love to share our road (and our home) with cyclists...and dogs, too.

 

Owner info

About the owner: I am a fifth generation Northern Californian from the Central Valley. After living in Oakland and working in San Francisco for many years, I moved to the Dry Creek Valley in 2006 to devote my time to farming and crafting.

Why the Owner Chose Healdsburg:
This is a special place, nestled in a side canyon of the Dry Creek Valley. Grape creek, a seasonal stream that provides habitat for steelhead as well as many other aquatic creates and birds, runs through the benchland portion of the property. The house is nestled into the side of the hill where the oak woodland begins to transition to redwood, madrone, and douglas fir forest.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Great environment for walking, both on trails within fenced property (dogs can run safely off-leash!) and also in the immediate neighborhood. Four very nice wineries (Michel Schlumberger, Mounts, Quivira, and A. Raffanelli) are within easy walking distance (but do call ahead to confirm hours and also to make an apointment if needed). A nice longer walk (just under two miles) gets you to the Dry Creek General Store (and the adjacent awesome local bar where EVERYONE is welcome!) where you can pick up snacks, picnic food/sandwiches, cold and hot beverages. Open for morning coffee at 6:30am! If you bring or rent bicycles, the options are awesome, too. Take a spin up to Lake Sonoma and there is a nice climb up into the Rockpile AVA. Another great trip is over Canyon Road into Geyserville for lunch at Diavola. The cycling options are truly as diverse as your dining options in Healdsburg! I am happy to make recommendations about local restaurants and day trips as well. When you are here, you will feel like you are truly Out in the Country but you can be on the freeway in six minutes from my front gate and you can get to the Healdsburg Plaza (the beautiful tree-encircled town square...music all summer on Tuesday nights) in twelve minutes. I love living in Healdsburg, and I know you will love it too!
