About Gary & Leslie Miller

We call California our home and wouldn't live anywhere else. We live in the Bay Area just outside San Francisco, but it was our dream to own a place in Wine Country. Healdsburg was perfect -- a great blend of Sonoma wine country mixed with an almost old-fashioned charm downtown. We love the area and are eager to share its warmth and charm with you.

Gary & Leslie Miller purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Gary & Leslie Miller chose Russian River

We knew this house was the place for us the second we walked in. Built just after WW2, the house has been lovingly updated with top-of-the line features. Everything is provided for you to enjoy your stay. It's clean updated on a quiet street just a short walk to the plaza or a short ride to the wineries.The 800 thread count linens are changed and ironed after every stay.

What makes this cottage unique

The location is perfect -- walk less than a 1/2 mile to downtown and enjoy seeing all the unique homes along the way. Or, if you don't want to walk, feel free to use on our bicycles. Even hanging out at the house is fun. The shower in the master bathroom includes a steam feature to relax and unwind after a long day of wine tasting.

Great little home, perfectly equipped and maintained. Healdsburg is wonderful and the house is close to the plaza where there are many great restaurants and tasting rooms.

Great cozy place, great location.

The kitchen isn't stocked with any basics, so if you're cooking, bring oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic, etc.

Charming Wine Country Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as pictures and described! It was very quaint, clean and comfortable with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful which made for a relaxing weekend.

It was a perfect size for our Father/daughter trip...The rooms are pretty small but for two adults it worked well. If you have many more than four in your party, unless there are several small children, I think it would be pretty tight, but it's a great size for smaller parties! We would absolutely stay here again.

We had a great stay on Lincoln Street.

  • 5 of 5

It rained the first 9 of 10 days we visited but the house was very comfortable. Gary was attentive to our needs and answered our emails in minutes-- even when he was on the road! We could not have been more comfortable and happy during our month long stay!

Quaint bungalow in a quaint town

  • 5 of 5

This home is great for one or two couples that is very well maintained with all anyone needs for a wonderful wine country get-away. We started every day with a 30 minute walk through the neighborhoods and around the plaza, and found this house to be in the perfect spot to be near the downtown Healdsburg area. We have stayed in several different homes in and around Healdsburg, and this place is at the top of our list.

Perfect spot in Healdsburg!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Healdsburg over Thanksgiving with my family (3 adults and 2 kids). We have been coming to Healdsburg to see family for years. This was by far our best rental. It's a well laid out home with pretty much everything you need. 2 nice bathrooms, comfortable bedrooms and a good kitchen. The outdoor patio is lovely although we didn't get to use it b/c of rain. The furniture is comfortable. We noticed bikes for use in the garage too. A couple of interesting things for future renters: the fridge in the kitchen is very small - not a problem for us, it was sufficient, but if you plan on cooking a lot there isn't a huge place to store food. The digital system in the entry is cool. It made changing the thermostat easy, but we thought it was calibrated wrong - the house got super hot at night. IT felt like it was about 10 degrees off. Easy to fix tho. Overall, this was one of the best vrbo rentals we've ever had. The owners really thought of everything and were very responsive! Would definitely rent here again.

Owner's Response: We're happy you enjoyed your stay. I'll look into the thermostat. I was thinking about replacing it with The Nest. We need to see if it will work with the alarm, cameras etc. Thanks again and Merry Christmas.
