Healdsburg many incredible wineries, restaurants and shops. It's our home away from home. And we are excited to share it with you!

Tracy Hansen purchased this house in 2014

Why Tracy Hansen chose Russian River

We knew we wanted to be in Healdsburg because of it's many famous wineries and shops. We bought this house because it was so close to the square. Just a few short blocks to all the restaurants, tasting rooms and shops we love. We LOVE taking a stroll or riding our cruiser bikes to the square for a bite to eat or for some wine tasting. The location just can't be beat!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location! On one of Healdsbirg's most historic streets. So close to all the action of the square and yet still so quite and tranquil.

great location, comfortable house, spacious backyard

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay in this house for a family reunion. With the easy walk to the town square for wine tastings and fantastic meals, a short distance by car to vineyards, the location is perfect for a wine country getaway! We really enjoyed the back yard... hot tub, fire pit, grill, comfortable seating... It was truly fabulous. The house was impeccably clean and served all our needs. We even went for a spin on the bikes- fun! And the owner was very fast in responding to questions I had. Thank you so much for everything!

Our New Fav Vacation Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

We’re just thrilled to have discovered this newly opened vacation rental right in the heart of the wine country! We host friends or family in the area at least twice a year for wine tasting excursions, but on our last few trips up, the houses we rented had detracted from the fun…disappointing! But that problem just got solved…! Of the loooong list of vacation rental places we’ve tried nearby, a new stellar favorite has emerged—we will be booking this sweet craftsman six months in advance!

It has everything we care about and more…the décor is comfortable and gracious with numerous , darling seating areas that beckon you to socialize and relax with your loved ones. The beds are SO comfortable—we awoke refreshed each morning. The two queens passed muster with our princess-and-the-pea types, and the twin daybed was greatly enjoyed by the singleton in our group. It was truly exquisite to savor our newly purchased bottle of wine while snuggling beside the fire pit and then soaking in the romantic hot tub beneath the stars each night…Why the heck did we EVER consider rent houses without hot tubs? A deep bath in the claw foot bath tub was a similarly relaxing treat! Kitchen was great--everything easy to use. Also a fun surprise was the cute herd of cruiser bikes at our disposal! Such a pain to pack our own clunky bikes on trips, but so fun to just jump on these babies and zoom downtown for ice cream cones!

“Location, location, location!” This place has the best one we’ve found. Easy access to all of the wine country highlights, plus right in the center of all of the downtown foodie and shopping delights. Yet still magically quiet and secluded-feeling. Like our own little haven. Our own little secret. Ooops, maybe I’ve let our secret out! Well, good things are meant to be shared. I know your group will enjoy this wonderful new vacation rental as much as we just did.
