Healdsburg cottage description

Share the joy of Heavensburg! Just two miles from the downtown plaza and all local amenities, our cottage is nestled in a neighborhood hillside, up a private driveway, with covered, off-street parking, just steps from your front door. We offer a newly renovated and furnished, 1 bedroom cottage with a comfortable sofa bed to accommodate parties of up to four people.
The bedroom suite has it's own entrance, living area, bathroom and kitchen, and is wheelchair accessible. Off of the bedroom is a covered deck with a bbq and sitting area. The cottage also has an indoor laundry.
Walk or drive into town or out into the vineyards. Treat yourself to the plethora of local faire in our rich and relaxed 'foodie haven,' or learn to be your own master chef at a 'teach and dine' experience at Relish Culinary school. Enjoy leisurely strolls or scenic 'power walks' through the miles of hiking and walking trails just a short jaunt from your front door. Then treat yourself to a revitalizing massage at one of our local spas or with a private masseuse.
Rest your spirit in the serenity of our local, agricultural pace, or venture out into the redwood forest of Armstrong Woods. Take in the rugged coastline and have lunch in Bodega Bay, or drive through scenic pasture lands to spend the day at dog-friendly, Dillon Beach. If the mood strikes you change the pace completely with a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco, just over an hour away, for some night life. Don't want to drive that far? Then try your luck at our local casino, River Rock, just 10 minutes north of us.
There is so much to do and see, and plenty of reason to just sit and be. One month's stay will only serve to beckon you back.

              Car: Necessary

              The property is located in the heart of the Sonoma County Wine Country. There is a number of things to do here and you are only limited by your imagination. Within minutes, you can be zip lining at Canopy Tours, or wine tasting at any of the numerous wineries and tasting rooms. Healdsburg is one of the Seven Wonders of the world in cycling with hundreds of miles of friendly, scenic roads. Don't feel like cycling? Take a guided Segway Tour of wineries from Segway of Healdsburg. Do you like to hike? Two blocks from your cottage are miles of hiking trails in the open space where you might catch a glimpse of deer, foxes, river otters, a variety of birds and maybe a bob cat. Take a lunch and enjoy the view from the ridge. Thirty minutes by car and you are in Armstrong Woods where some of the oldest and tallest redwood trees exist. And if you like the water, Lake Sonoma is just 15 minutes away and you can rent a boat for a fun day on the lake. You'll soon find out that there is so much to see and do. A month's stay will barely be enough to scratch the surface.


              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: The owners, Toni Lisoni and Susan Jones, live in the main house next to the cottage with their two rescue pooches. Susan is the former police chief and currently serves as the Mayor. Toni is a civil rights attorney. They each grew up in southern California and moved up to northern California in the 70's and 80's, respectively. They have lived in Healdsburg since 2002.

              Why the Owner Chose Healdsburg:
              They planned to retire here but had the good fortune not to have to wait, as Susan accepted the police chief's job in February of 2002. Healdsburg has recently been named one of the top ten small cities in America, one of the top twenty foodie destinations in the world by ZAGAT, the second top wine region in the world, second only to Tuscany, Italy. And lastly, one of the top ten Plazas in America and one of the 'Seven Wonders' in the cycling world by Bicycling Magazine. Why would you not want to live here. :-)

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              This cottage has two, one-bedroom apartments that are completely private from each other. If you have more than four people in your party, or, your friends would like their own space, then check out Heavensburg Two, #486142. It is situated below Heavensburg. You can all stay together and have your own privacy!
