About the property

2+ BR, 2 BA, 50 Acres, Views, Huge Deck, 10 Mins to Healdsburg & Wineries.

Mill Creek is a mid-century modern home with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Just 10 minutes from Healdsburg square, it is completely private on 50 acres filled with Redwoods and Madrones. It's like being in your own secluded park.

The house has a complete, remodeled kitchen stocked with everything you need to cook a great meal. There are 2 remodeled bathrooms and a huge, furnished deck. Sit out, eat out, grill out, enjoy the privacy and views of the redwoods, madrones and mountain ridge. The huge stone fireplace uses BioFuel sparing the environment and producing great heat. Bring your music and stream to the built in sound system, or watch Roku streaming on the 65' TV. The beds are great as are the sheets and comforters.

Hike our private trails, relax on the enormous deck, or take in the many wineries that are less than 10 minutes from the front gate. If you like biking, explore our street, Westside Road and West Dry Creek Road. Feel like getting wet? Rent a canoe and go out on Russian River. Wind down on the deck in complete privacy.

Healdsburg is just 10 minutes from the house and offers world class dining, shops and wine tasting. Our manual includes a list of our favorites. Great food stores and more are just 9 minutes from the house.

DRIVEWAY NOTE: Our home is on a hillside. The driveway is paved but contains curves and one switchback. Most drivers handle the driveway easily, but it is windy and steep. Please use caution, especially when wet.

SMOKING NOTE: Our home and property are completely non-smoking. Smoking is not permitted in the house or anywhere on the property.

It's hard to find complete comfort and privacy so close to Healdsburg and Wineries. Enjoy!

Awesome wine country experience in the redwoods

  • 5 of 5

This property is a few miles down Mill Creek Road in the redwoods, but situated on top of a hill so you get the best of all worlds: sunlight and forest (and of course wine country). The home itself is nicely appointed and filled with natural light. We stayed for two months and didn't want to leave!

Amazing in the woods, on the Hill but so close to town

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect. Very quiet and remote just 15 min. Into downtown Healdsburg. Well equipped kitchen To cook breakfast before you head out for wine tasting really right in the middle of everything. Great Tv and sleeping arrangements. Nice deck to sit outside and enjoy the weather and night sky. Would go back in a second. Thanks

Pros and Cons

  • 4 of 5

The views from this property are gorgeous. You are located up on a mountain - totally secluded. It is very peaceful and quiet. We saw some of the most beautiful moon risings we have ever seen. The house is conveniently located close to wineries, the Safeway and the town of Healdsburg. The beds are very comfortable and the house is well stocked. The downside is that the house does not have central A/C. While the nights are cool, the days were very warm. However, they did have 2 portable AC units that worked well. The internet was off and on. We were not able to get a connection about half of the time - especially in the mornings. When we did get a connection, it was very slow. (we use AT&T so it should have worked) In addition, we were not able to fully enjoy the wrap around balcony due to the very aggressive yellow jackets. As soon as we tried to sit outside they would come around and there was no way we could eat outside with them buzzing around so aggressively. This is our 7th year in a row coming to wine country - always at the same time - and we've never had a problem with yellow jackets until this trip. With that being said, we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. You just can't beat the location, privacy, peacefulness and views...

Beautiful surroundings and well stocked home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this home. The wrap around deck is really lovely with beautiful views of the hills and thick forest. It's a quick drive to Healdsburg and there are dozens of wineries in the immediate vicinity of the home. The house is well stocked and we found everything we needed. The floor to ceiling windows are beautiful. Only two recommendations- bring your own washcloths for removing makeup as the owners don't want you to use their white ones (would be nice if they supplied some darker towels for this), and if you have animal allergies, this isn't the place to stay as there have obviously been dogs in the home and there is hair on the couch and pillows. But overall, a nice place that feels quiet and serene.

Perfect setting for a getaway week or weekend

  • 4 of 5

This two bedroom retreat was exactly what we were looking for. Quiet, secluded on a mountain top. But it was just minutes away from Healdsberg and wineries. We went on a bike tour and stopped at a number of boutique wineries. The accommodations were casual and relaxed. The bathrooms and kitchen had been upgraded and fit perfectly into this retreat. We experienced one minor inconvenience - no water pressure in the kitchen - but Eric jumped on the issie and tracked down a plumber to fix the problem. Overall, we had a great time and would return in the future. Would definitely recommend to our friends.
