This special home in the ‘Tuscany’ of Northern California, has a fabulous gourmet kitchen, the heart of this very special retreat. The main level entry hall leads you to the expansive well-equipped kitchen, on your left, which opens to the dining and living areas, all with high ceilings, custom lighting, abundant windows and doors opening to the 3-sided porch and back patio, and the well designed flowing floor plan makes for nearly effortless transitions from room to room.

On the right front side of the home, ‘lives’ the second bedroom suite also with queen bed, peaceful décor, ceiling to floor silk drapes for the window, and full glass door, leading to the back deck and spa. There is also a wall-mounted 32' flat screen TV. A well appointed second en-suite bathroom features a huge walk-in, fully tiled shower with 2 showering stations with wands and a teak ‘in shower’ bench.

But wait! Climb the staircase to the upper level of this very special home to the expansive 1400+ sq. ft. multi-use Great Room suite. A private family retreat unto itself, this beautiful space creates a relaxing environment full of amenities and opportunities for play, watching TV or a movie, or a rejuvenating, restful sleep.

Considering the splendor of it all and spectacular and abundant amenities and features of this magnificent Retreat, you may never want to leave and may have to be ‘pried’ out to enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature and the many adventures to be enjoyed in Healdsburg, Windsor and the surrounding areas. The outdoor features of the Retreat include a 3-sided wrap-around porch, back deck with 2 tables and chairs for 10, another round table with umbrella and 4 chairs, a 7-person hydrotherapy spa, a gas grill for your BBQing pleasure, the shaded canopy of 100 year old oaks, over an acre of lawn, and the glorious sunsets over the vineyard.

About Andrew McGuire
My wife and I built our home in Sonoma County in late 2003. After living in our dream home for 8 years we decided to return to the East Bay to be near our two daughters and our five granddaughters. We did not want to sell our home so we decided to provide our home as a vacation rental. This way we can return whenever the home is not occupied and show our granddaughters their goat, horse and sheep friends on the neighboring properties, pick blackberries in August and help them identify the birds and other wildlife that come and go (nearly 50 different bird species appear throughout the year). We intend to constantly upgrade our home with the amenities that make for a relaxing and memorable retreat or vacation. We encourage feedback from our guests so we can improve the 'wine country' experience for future guests. Thank you for considering our home for your 'retreat.' Kae and Andrew McGuire Owners

Oasis in wine country
We really enjoyed our stay at Oak Leaf Retreat and only wished we could have stayed a few more days! The house was big enough for the 5 girl friends I was with for all of us to have our own room or space. The kitchen is very spacious and well appointed. We all loved the wrap around deck and made use of the hot tub one night. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels and toiletries available for our use. Location was great, close to Healdsburg (restaurants, shopping) and short drive to Geyserville wineries.
Ouiet, comfortable and well stocked!
Last minute trip to Windsor/Healdsburg. This home is very comfortable, clean and well stocked with daily essentials. The view from the backyard deck is peaceful and beautiful. Our host Andrew was both accommodating and very easy to communicate with. We look forward to returning.
Thank you for your positive review. Look forward to seeing your family and you again.
Amazing stay with a breathtaking view!
My family and I were there celebrating my dads 64th birthday and we couldn’t have asked for a better time! The weather was brisk but sunny and we enjoyed most of our time with the French doors open to the back porch where we played board games, drank wine and looked out to the beautiful property. My parents enjoyed a stroll through the vineyard as the sun set while the rest of us cooked in the FULLY equipped kitchen.
Andrew stopped by and introduced himself and let us know that he was only a walk away in case we had any questions or needed help. What a nice guy!
We will remember this trip for a lifetime and felt so at home at the Oak Leaf Retreat.
We would love to come back to this beautiful home and cannot wait to plan our next trip to Healdsburg.
Thank you for your wonderful review. And, I am so glad to hear that your parents strolled through the vineyard and, i'm sure, enjoyed the incredible views. Do come again!
Charming and Relaxing!
Our stay at Oak Leaf Retreat exceeded our expectations! The house was perfect for our group and is set in the perfect location for the wineries and vineyards that we wanted to visit. We loved sitting outside on the wrap around porch to enjoy the beautiful view. The kitchen is perfect and we took advantage of cooking two meals at the house while we were there. The house is very clean and the owners were very accommodating. When we come back, we hope to stay in this house again.
Amazing home at the end of the lane!
I really loved this property and would highly recommend it. The wrap around deck gives the home a very comfortable feel.
Great house, great location
This place was great. Close to downtown Healdsburg as well as Windsor. And it felt completely private - the large grounds and great landscaping made it feel like there was no one else around.
Easy checkin and checkout. We had a great time and would stay again.
Thank you, Gautam, I'm so pleased you enjoyed our home. And I hope you join the many other former guests who return to Old Camp Lane to enjoy our private place in Sonoma County.
Wine tasting, fine dining, old growth redwood preserve, Fort Ross Historical State Park, Skunk Train, sea, river, and lake. Over 100 wineries within 20 minutes of Oak Leaf Retreat.
