Outstanding Wine Country Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love staying at Kimberly’s house, right outside of Healdsburg. It is a perfect size for our group of four, well decorated and sitting right in the middle of the Dry Creek Valley and a quick walk to the Dry Creek General Store. A great experience with a great host!

Amazing Stay/Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

The property and location were fantastic for our weekend trip to Healdsburg. The house is exactly as pictured and very comfortable with multiple outdoor spaces, comfy beds, and nice towels. We have been to the area several times so knew our way around but Kimberly had tons of great suggestions for local wineries, restaurants, and shops. Could not have been happier with our stay/accomodations and hope to come back to visit again soon.

Thanks again for everything! -Clinton

What a great house for two couples. You really could not ask for more. Great indo and outdoor spaces for hanging out. Perfect location for running up and down Dry creek for Zin, walk to Dry creek General store for picnic supplies and 5 min. into Healdsburg for dinner and shopping.

Great place in the heart of Northern Sonoma

  • 4 of 5

We really liked this place despite the record temperatures. We are both very familiar with this area as we have been visiting for many years. This was our favorite place. They might want to consider adding an a/c unit if these recent spikes in temperature turn out to be the new normal.

Bay area mom and wine lover

  • 5 of 5

We love First Crush Cottage!! This was my third visit with my family and we will be back again. I love the design and decor. It's so lovely to sit in the backyard looking at the grapes and the garden. It is conveniently located close to the town square and the wineries. I brought my road bike and rode into town for coffee one morning. Its truly a special home. The owner is generous with recommendations so you can just step into wine country living like a local.
