Healdsburg house description

Just 8 minutes from Downtown Healdsburg, this Tiny House is situated next to a large pond on 52 acres of redwoods and trails. Think of it as your upscale hotel room under one tiny roof, only 200' from a country road winding toward 34 Dry Creek Valley wineries.

There's an open great room with a small table, a sleeping loft with a queen size memory foam bed, and a bathroom with sink and toilet. The property features a nearby outdoor Redwood shower.

A picnic table, barbecue and hammock are close by, along with easy parking.

This tiny house is unique in that it is a traditional stud frame structures on wheels.

                  Car: Necessary

                  Healdsburg is voted one of the best small towns in America for its small size and large selection of wine tasting, restaurants, art galleries, boutique shops, town plaza with free live music, and numerous family friendly events throughout the year.

                  There are 34 wineries along Dry Creek Road, along with world renowned restaurants. Stunning Lake Sonoma is just a few minutes away.

                  This is a wonderful opportunity to try downsizing at its best while enjoying the great outdoors and the beauty of northern California.

                   

                  Manager info

                  About: We're uniquely privileged to live on 50 gorgeous acres with a huge pond and a creek surrounded by trails and redwoods. We call it Otter Pond because of the sassy river otter that visits now and again, and we view our open spaces as a natural resource to be shared, protected, and enjoyed. We work hard to be here in this amazing setting and we feel so much more gratified by it when we can share it with as many good people as possible.

                  Why Healdsburg:
                  This is a family venture; we have now partnered with our long term renter to manage the property. We're setting this short term rental to get started with our long term sustainable land use plan combining tiny house construction and education with permaculture style forest gardens.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Enjoy a solitary walk in the woods if you wish, or bring your spouse, kids, or buddy to hang with you. Additional guests can camp out in sleeping bags or air beds on the floor, or in tents if you’re a Scout about it - you know, leave no trace, no fires during dry season, etc. It’s a great place to swim, hike, BBQ, study nature, or just relax and get away in a peaceful forest setting. We also set up an outdoor shower, which you are free to use. From the giant hollow stumps of a couple redwoods you can go inside and hang out in, to the mossy logs spanning little ravines, this land has a certain magic to it. Beloved California native plants, birds, and amphibians are everywhere, and every season and every hour has its own special range of colors, sounds, and visual delights. This is the perfect for writing a novel or script, hiking in nature, meditating in serenity, or just as a base for your wine country explorations.
