Great stay in Healdsburg

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Even better in person.

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised with the layout of the home. It was even bigger and better in person than I imagined. Honestly, we thought the lack of a bathroom in the side house was going to an issue, but right out the side and a few feet into the other entrance of the main

house, was a bathroom to use. The house had everything we needed. It was comfortable for our group. Great location for our Passport at Dry Creek Valley weekend.

Perfect for a wine tasting weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our large group stayed here in March and the house was perfect! The owners were super accommodating by letting us check in early and providing super clear directions for entry. It's only about a 5 minute drive to downtown Healdsburg and the layout of the house is perfect for a big group, plus the huge deck, bbq and pool were awesome. Can't wait to go back again when it's warmer out!

Great Location for a Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We came to Healdsburg for Barrel Weekend and had a blast. This house was just what we needed, nothing fancy but a nice homey feel! The patio has the most amazing view of the valley, and there was enough beds for everyone to get a good nights sleep. The location was great. Just about 2 miles to town. The cell service around Healdsburg was pretty spotty, and the wifi didn't work in the house. We really loved that there were plenty of wine glasses for everyone. :) Thanks!

Aug 27, 2016. For my daughter's wedding, my family from around Washington DC traveled to the wine country for the first time. The house was perfect for us. The common area is very large, huge dining table, beds were comfortable, large kitchen very well stocked, everything well taken care of and VERY clean. Some of my family stayed in the Guest House and found no problem with the short walk outside to the bathroom in main house; the outside walkway is a few feet and covered. But the best thing is the fabulous view of Dry Creek Valley from the large front deck. it was the HIGHLIGHT of our long weekend. The deck is where everyone gathered. We had wonderful weather but didn't use the pool much as it was too cold but we didn't need it. The location is so close to everything and easy to get to (just up the hill from Dry Creek Rd). We all agreed we would definitely return if we could. This is the place to be. Thanks to our hosts and property caretakers. You were great to work with. THANK YOU.

**Just a note, I was told the the shower head in hall bath wasn't working too well. I didn't see it so can't give you any more info on it but you might want to check it. But it didn't matter much to my family; many were using the huge Master Bath for showers.
