About Leighann

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

Leighann purchased this house in 1992

Beautiful Healdsburg Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful Cottage!!! It was the highlight of our trip to Northern California. The Cottage was spotless and beautifully decorated!! The beds were so comfortable, my husband and I went out and bought the same mattress when we got home! It was the perfect space for our grown family of 6 and it was so inviting we ended up staying in for our New Year Eve! The kitchen was perfect for cooking meals or just enjoying our morning coffee. The deck was large with plenty of seating and had a spectacular view of the vineyard! The property was quaint and quiet....perfect!!! Being so close to Healdsburg was a huge plus! Shopping and wonderful restaurants were just a couple of minutes away! We can't wait to return!!! Thank you Leighann!!

Owner's Response: Michele, We are so happy that you stayed with us in Cottage 02 - I agree with you on the beds, they are the incredibly comfortable and organic! We hope to catch up with you next time you are in California. I am especially happy to hear it was peaceful, you were here while we planted the 13 ancient olive trees. Fewf! Thank you for the great review! Leighann

Beautiful house in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Planning a girls trip for women aged 30-70 is no easy task, but when I found this gem of a house online I knew it would be perfect! The house is beautifully decorated, emaculate and extremely comfortable. It was the preferred option to hotel as it had a kitchen (we cooked and hired a chef one night) and a wonderful living room to all spend time together. Being so close to Healdsburg was also great as we were able to quickly get to the center of town to shop and explore. In addition, the owners were extremely accessible and responsive which was a huge plus. My mom is already talking about our next stay!

There’s No Place Like Home….

  • 5 of 5

If you are searching for a luxurious comfortable home for your vacation in wine country then search no more! The cottage at the Healdsburg Country Gardens is well appointed and tastefully decorated with all the comforts of home. The expansive deck provides magnificent views of the vineyards; there is ample seating for all and a hot tub to enjoy on those cool California nights. There is even a grill if you choose to enjoy an evening at home. The kitchen is large and well stocked so a private dinner party at home is indeed something you may want to enjoy, open a few bottles of wine you may have found while exploring the local vineyards during the day!! The beds are quite comfortable and 2 of the 3 bedrooms have an en suite full bath (newly renovated), which allows a group of family and or friends to have some privacy while enjoying the company of their travel group. The 3rd bedroom offers a powder room. If you are fortunate enough to attend a wedding on the grounds this is indeed the place to stay, we came to Healdsburg for a family wedding and found a wonderful retreat in the cottage. We will be back and our entire group would HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Healdsburg gem

  • 5 of 5

We shared this house with another couple for a bike ride and wine tasting. From initial contact to check-in, communication was great. The location is perfect - minutes from town. The house is very well furnished and extremely inviting. And the grounds are amazing. Perfect for a quiet stroll and glass of wine. B

Healdsburg beauty!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience at this property. Barbara was terrific with all of our communication before arrival and she & Walt couldn't be more gracious hosts. The home met all of our needs and we spent each evening in the hot tub! Barbara warned us in advance that there would be grape harvesting at night, so we were prepared for the activity & noise and felt it only added to the charm of being in Wine Country at the height of their season! We will definitely stay at this property again the next time we travel to Sonoma County!

Owner's Response: Guests ask ahead when the harvest will be hoping it happens when they are here. We can't predict it and we never know till the day before. It's all about when the wine maker says the taste and the sugar level is "right." Then, grapes are picked within a day! You were lucky to be here when the Sauvignon Blanc was harvested by machine at night. It's pretty exciting to see! Depending on the varietal of grapes being picked, harvest can be as early as August and as late as end of October. Now the grapevines are turning yellow and orange. Glad you enjoyed your stay in the Wine Country Home and Healdsburg. Thanks for choosing to stay on our wine country farm. Walt & Barbara

The Perfect Place to Stay in Healdsburg

  • 5 of 5

It starts with a gracious welcome from the owners Barbara and Walt, and gets better from there. We stayed at the wine country home. Plenty of room, very functional kitchen with lovely dining areas inside and on the deck. (It really does look exactly like the pictures.) We found everything comfortable and spotless. Go to the farmers market in town and cook a meal at home -- even with all the great restaurants in town it's worth the effort, especially if you sit outside and enjoy the change in light over the vineyard. The gardens really are delightful, and we found ourselves just strolling through them (with a glass of wine!) every evening. A walk in the vineyard is lovely too. The location is convenient to the plaza -- close enough to walk -- and to wineries. Communication with Barbara and Walt both before and during our stay was so easy, and they made it so easy to use the house -- guides to using electronics and appliances, how to get places, a file of winery discount cards....very highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Hey, you did our favorite things: go to the farmers market, come home and enjoy dinner on the deck and watch the sun on the vineyards! Of course, having a glass of Sonoma County wine tops off the experience. Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, Walt & Barbara, Owners who live on the property
