Beautiful location and views
We had a large group that easily fit into the large home. We spent as much time as possible outside on the beautiful deck. The views and tranquility of the neighborhood were definitely a highlight for us. I don’t believe the photos do it justice. We also greatly enjoyed the pool area. The interior of the house is quirky regarding bedrooms/bathrooms but we had no problems at all sharing the space.
The house is super close to the town and the grocery store, which was very convenient. As well, its surrounded by many amazing wineries. The hard part was choosing which ones to go to!
We loved sitting on the wrap around porch drinking the wine we had bought that day as we watched the sun go down. The two rooms in the main house are really big and very comfortable. The guest house is a bit cramped but as long as you are okay with a slumber party feel it works perfectly .
Cozy interior - prime location to Healdsburg. Quiet and peaceful with a beautiful view.
Tranquil sanctuary in Sonoma
Lovely house set in a country setting. Very attractive kitchen amid spacious accommodation. The hosts were very attentive to some minor problems which we had. We had to evacuate amid the tragic Sonoma/Napa fires of October 2017 and the owners were very fair in reimbursing us for the days which we were unable to stay as a result of the fire hazard. We recommend this house for those with a big group or family.
Great stay in Healdsburg
We had a wonderful time staying at the Natsch's home. The house was very very clean including the baths which is a plus for the kids. We loved the expansive deck with great views and the Adirondack loungers. The pool was also very very clean and was great in the summer afternoons. The house did not get hot even though it was 85 outside.there are tons of toys and children's books which kept our little ones entertained all weekend. The only blemish was the atypical layout of the third and fourth bedrooms which are in a separate structure with no bathroom and you walk through the third bedroom to get to the fourth. We made do just fine since we only used three bedrooms and the third bedroom was used by a family with young baby so it actually worked out for the best. The best thing was the fresh fruit on the property. The peaches were an amazing treat at breakfast. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Wonderful Country Home in Wine Country
We had a great time at Jack Pine Retreat and it was perfect for our family get together. The only problem was the weather. For several days the temp was over 100 degrees and the main house is not air conditioned. The guest house has a window ac unit and was fine, but the main house was warm. We made do with fans realizing that this was very unusual weather. It only lasted a few days and the house was very comfortable after that
The managers were great and available and even provided us with a misting hose for the deck. The deck is large and has a wonderful view of the valley. The pool was a lifesaver. The pool and grounds were wonderful for the kids with fruit trees and lizards to chase and plenty of driveway for bikes. The location is perfect. It is close to Safeway and Healdsburg, but on the wine trail with numerous wineries just down the road.
We had a great time and would highly recommend this rental.
