Beautiful private views overlooking vineyards and convenient drive into town
Amazing views in the heart of Dry Creek Valley
We did a quick trip to Healdsburg last week with another couple and our kids, before a family wedding weekend nearby. We have stayed in the area many times at various rental properties, and the Decanter was a pleasant surprise for us.
First of all, the views from the kitchen and master bedroom are nothing less than spectacular. You would never want to leave the place, except that looking at all of the vines reminds you that 40+ wineries are beckoning only a short drive away.
The kitchen is well-appointed with anything that a gourmet chef might need. The bedrooms are all very comfortable. It's clear that all of the furnishings are brand new, and Jack and B decorated the whole house very tastefully. Our kids really enjoyed the pool outside and the pool table inside. We loved the outdoor BBQ and dining facilities next to the pool - gave us fantastic adult time while the kids did their thing.
The Decanter is a lovely property, and Jack and B are lovely hosts. We can't wait to come back and stay here again!
DECANTER - A Luxury Home in the Heart of Healdburg's Dry Creek Valley
We just spent the weekend at the most amazing Wine Country home, called Decanter, with two other couples.
While only a ten minute drive to downtown Healdsburg and close to many of Dry Creek 's wineries, we felt completely immersed in nature and removed from civilization while at this property. The views of vineyards and mountains from the windows are spectacular. It felt more like we were staying at a private residence owned by a luxury hotel than staying at a VRBO. The home is huge, well appointed and super clean with lots of fun little "extras" left out for the guests (nice to be welcomed with a bottle of wine & glasses on the counter!) and "curated tips" about using coasters, taking care of the kitchen butcher block and remembering that the property is on a septic. The bedding and towels are all luxury brands.
We had been planning to eat mostly in town, but the Decanter kitchen was so well stocked and the views out the kitchen windows so captivating that we decided to grocery shop and cook for ourselves. We made of point of taking our meals (and snack breaks) on the various decks that overlook both mountains and vineyards, but didn't quite get to all of them this visit.
The pool is beautiful and nicely heated but we didn't spend nearly enough time enjoying it.
We'll definitely be coming back! A weekend isn't nearly long enough to fully enjoy all the amenities of this property.
Perfect House/Perfect Location=Perfect Vacation
Decanter House provided the perfect weekend venue for our family during the 4th of July weekend. We were 3 couples and a baby and we each had our own bedroom/bath/deck/garage. The first floor game room with Murphy bed provided an alternate area for baby to nap and not be disturbed and a place to sleep with a parent so we would not be disturbed.
The house is immaculate and tastefully furnished. It sits on a hill with spectacular and peaceful views of Dry Creek Valley to the west. Looking eastward, we were able to watch the fireworks in downtown Healdsburg, only 3 miles away.
Upon arrival, we were greeted with a lovely cheese tray, sparkling wine on ice, cupcakes appropriately frosted in red/white /blue and gifts and thoughtful items for baby. In addition, there are special touches not usually found in a house rental--good coffee, cold drinks and two kinds of milk in the 'frig, robes and the most comfortable slippers in each bedroom, Kiehl's products in all the bathrooms, sun tan lotions and potions, and current newspapers and magazines.
The pool area is most pleasant and we spent a lot of time lounging around and swimming. Attractive plastic dishes and utensils are stored nearby for outdoor dining and refreshments and the owners were thoughtful in providing patriotic napkins for the occasion.
The kitchen is large and open with extensive countertop space that can easily accommodate 4 cooks. It has a 6-burner gas stove, french press and espresso maker, heavy-duty mixer, and other quality appliances. The Weber grill is well located on the deck near the kitchen. We had planned to go out but cooked or barbecued every night because it was such a pleasure being in the house. The owners encouraged us to enjoy their garden so we made ratatouille w/ the fresh herbs and a salad with a variety of lettuces.
We enjoyed playing pool, watching the US Women's World Cup and movies on the big screens, and gathering in one of the many sitting areas to chat and play music.
Thank you, Jack and B. This is a wonderful house and we had a great time.
Perfect in every way!
Wow! What a wonderful property!
This property is close to everything but feels completely removed. The property itself is beautiful, quiet, more than well appointed, surrounded by nature, and yet just a quick drive into town and close to all the great wineries of Healdsburg.
We came up to Decanter for a family getaway and it could not have been more perfect. Jack and B are incredible hosts. They not only answered all of our ridiculous questions (is there an ice cream maker? YES, there is!), but they went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time.
We were welcomed by surprises for the kids by the pool and in the house, wine and snacks for the adults as well, and everything (really everything) one could ask for in a vacation rental. Even the pool and hot tub were heated to the exact right temperature. We not only felt welcomed, but we felt like the hosts knew us. So awesome!
We spent most of the time by the pool, but the house itself is really great as well. Super well appointed, spotless and also so comfortable. Every part of the house is well thought out.
I can't say enough good things about this space and the hosts. We will be back again and again as we are now completely spoiled. Thank you!
Stunning Home with Excellent Location.
I have been to Healdsburg many times and this hands down the best rental property I have ever had the pleasure of staying at. The house is newly updated and has been on the market for only a few weeks.
The swimming pool is absolutely lovely and a great place to relax. As soon as we put our feet in the water, we didn’t want to leave. We spent much of our time relaxing poolside, and enjoying the scenery.
The house was spotless top to bottom. Much care was taken to ensure that the house was properly cleaned and prepared prior to our arrival.
The house was close to many local vineyards and the center of Healdsburg. Very close to a great grocery store where we were able to stock up. We cooked at home one night and went to town for a great dinner (Dry Creek Kitchen) the next.
We would definitely stay here again, wonderful, worth every penny.
