Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
Healdsburg - what a great place to live and to visit. Our 15-acre farm property "Ru's Farm" has our home, 2 vacation cottages & 15 acres of vineyards. We can walk 20-25 minutes to Healdsburg Plaza -- just 1 & 1/2 miles. What a beautiful place to wake up every morning. My husband (John) and I both grew up in Sonoma County. We live on Ru's Farm with our children, dogs, cats, chickens and birds. John and I love to recharge by going on hikes through the California mountains and reading on the beach. We are looking forward to meeting you! -Leighann

What makes this Cottage unique
Location is everything when you are on vacation--we are 1 & 1/2 miles to the Plaza -- you can walk or drive 4 minutes. Having wonderful restaurants, shops, and 200+ wineries all nearby makes for plenty of things to enjoy. Plus the Russian River is an 1/2 mile away -- the swim beach and kayaking add fun to summertime. Healdsburg is a friendly town for everyone to enjoy. Don't miss the Tuesday night free concerts in the Plaza in summertime. Great golf is nearby--we like the public course in Windsor + others in the area. Great weather & lots to do makes this a great place to live and visit.

Cute little cottage
Very good experience and value.
This is as-advertised - a tiny cottage on beautiful grounds. I see some complained about the tiny bathroom. It’s tiny but perfectly fine. Embrace it. The check-in and communication was easy. We arrived late after dark and got ourselves in with no problem. Healdsburg is a great little town. The square is 1.8m away.
My only downside is that the bed - although very comfortable- is a particle board-framed Murphy bed. This results in some bed noise from the frame - not the mattress- with EVERY minor movement. This did impact our experience. A solid/normal bed - shifted over away from the wall so as to access both sides - would be an improvement. Thanks for stocking an Umbrella. We needed it. Overall I would recommend this as a good spot in late spring through early fall if you plan to spend early evenings on site rather than in town. In the colder/darker months it is harder to make use of the cute little porch and outdoor seating.
Thanks for a nice stay.
Beautiful and quite getaway!
We had a great time at Cottage 01. The view from the room is spectacular and the grounds are truly beautiful. Great place to spend a weekend!
Loved our short stay.
We loved everything about our stay at Ru’s Farm! The property was gorgeous and very true to the photos. We had a minor issue of no hot water the first night, but Lele was very responsive (even though she was out of the country!) and it was remedied early the next morning. We had an amazing complementary tour at Bella wine caves because of our stay at Ru’s which was a huge perk. And the resident cat seemed very happy to welcome us to the farm :) Only recommendation is to be comfortable in a small bathroom - other than that you’ll have a little slice of paradise all to yourself!
Great Tiny Cottage
This cottage was a perfect location for wine tasting through Alexander Valley and Dry Creek. It is very small, but also very comfortable. Very quiet with nice views. You do need to be comfortable in a small bathroom, and ok keeping the temperature controlled with a small powerful fireplace. Overall a great experience.
lovely little cottage
lovely little cottage overlooking vineyards. Quiet and reasonably close to town.
Stay in healdsburg
Not quite what we expected. Beautiful grounds but a little disappointing regarding the accommodations and amenities
Hello Marjorie. We are sad to hear that the cottage was not what you were expecting.
Please let me know if there was anything in our photos or write up that seemed mis-leading, so I can make necessary changes. We try to make it very clear on the site of this little historical cottage is tiny and suited for active guests, that are looking for a spot to relax, sleep and soak in the wine country lifestyle. I hope you enjoyed the bottle of zinfandel we offered you as the noisy grape-picking was happening while you were here. Any thoughts and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Wine Tasting at more than 200 wineries within 30 minute of the property. Explore charming Healdsburg Plaza just 3 minutes away--shops, spas & world class restaurants! 1/2 mile to Russian River swim beach, kayak and canoe trips! The sweet spot in Healdsburg is the Plaza -- we are a 3 minute drive away!
Our location is perfect -- country but close to everything! Good news...you won't spend a lot of time in your car!
