Our rustic Russian River cottage offers everything you need for an enjoyable stay in the heart of California wine country. Tasting rooms and wineries galore are located just minutes away in Healdsburg, Dry Creek, Alexander Valley, Calistoga, Forestville, and Guerneville (Armstrong Redwoods).
The living area is comfortable and cozy, complete with river stone fireplace (decorative only), cable TV, wifi, central heat, and AC. The bedroom is just off the living room and sleeps two. Main bathroom has a shower (note: there is no tub). Large adjoining light-filled charming knotty pine room with a vaulted beamed ceiling adds an additional private sleeping area with two twin beds and a couch/love seat with an adjacent 1/2 bath. The large front deck and back patio (with 3-4 person hot tub) offer up the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day of wine tasting, shopping, or Russian River adventures. There is parking space for 3 cars on the property.
This house is located across the street from the beautiful Russian River. There is a public access path to the river just 500 feet from the house. There is a public access path to the river just a short walk from the house. Important to note: While you can access the river at this point, there is no beach at the end of this path. Healdsburg Veterans Memorial Beach Park is located 3 miles from the house.
Nearby, the Healdsburg Plaza resembles a miniature Carmel CA, with fine art galleries, specialty and antique shops, restaurants, wine bars, and tasting rooms. Other special surroundings include golf, world-class wineries, festivals, canoeing, kayaking & picnicking. Healdsburg is just over an hour away from from San Francisco (easy access from scenic 101 North), two hours from Sacramento, 45 minutes from Bodega Bay and Jenner by the Sea.

Katie Scharer purchased this cottage in 2014
Our cottage was left very clean upon departure. We had pleasant interactions through email and text -- there were absolutely no issues with this renter. I would be happy to rent to him and his party again.
Had a great stay here this past weekend. The house is on the smaller side but provided plenty of space for our small group - very cozy and charming. We made good use of the fully stocked kitchen tools for making breakfast, and of course enjoyed the hot tub! Katie was very accommodating for any questions/issues that we had and was very prompt to respond. Would definitely stay here again!
Enjoyed our stay at this quaint cottage along the Russian River. The home has everything needed for a comfortable stay including Wi-fi and satellite TV. It truly is just a short drive from downtown Healdsburg. The front deck, private back deck and hot tub added to the enjoyable stay.
My friends and I really enjoyed our stay! The house was perfect for the four of us and the location was great.
This house was perfect for our needs- there were four of us and we fit just perfectly. It's very cozy, well-maintained and the hot tub was a great addition in the back. We stayed there in order to go to Healdsburg/wine taste and it was less than 15 minutes away from everything we wanted to do. The owner is super responsive and gave good directions for finding the house (the street numbers are a little hairy). Would definitely book again!
We enjoyed our stay in Katie's vacation home. Katie did a fabulous job of communicating with us before we arrived, and she was available to answer questions once we were there. The location was nice - a quiet neighborhood and pretty setting. We were very comfortable staying there.
We loved this rustic Russian River cottage. The house is comfortable, clean and has really nice beds! My only complaint is that we didn't stay longer. Hope to return soon for an extended stay.
