Beautiful Mountain Top Retreat less than 10 mins from downtown Healdsburg!

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,700 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths home, 7 mins to Healsburg & walking distance to the river!

MTR is a perfect starting point to Alexander Valley and Dry Creek wineries and a short walk to the banks of Russian River where you can float, kayak, paddle board or just lay in the sun.

Nested on Fitch Mountain, MTR is in the heart of nature. You are close enough to downtown Healdsburg (less than 10 mins by car) yet far away to enjoy some peace and quiet.

Enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the exquisite views from the backyard in a very quiet and relaxing environment.

Our elegant 3 story-home is limited to 6 overnight guests. There is a total of 3 bedrooms, 2 with queen size beds, and one bedroom with 2 twin beds (each room is on a separate floor which provides more privacy)

Our gourmet contemporary kitchen is fully equipped for the chefs among you. Our 3 ovens make cooking multiple dishes a much easier task. Off the kitchen is a cute breakfast nook area for 4.

The open living / dining area upstairs makes it perfect to gather around a meal with friends or family. Enjoy your own space with a separate bedroom / bathroom area downstairs. The 3rd room is off the 2nd bedroom (though at a lower level) and shares a master bath that is located in the 2nd bedroom. Please note that in order to access the bathroom you must enter the 2nd bedroom.

Our garage has been converted into a very fun game room which includes a pool/ping pong table, darts and a keyboard.

There are activities to interest everyone, from swimming, to winery tours, hiking, biking, kayaking, playing games in our garage, and the myriad of top restaurants in town. Healdsburg historic plaza is a great place to start your day for a cup of coffee or to end it by visiting one of the many wine tasting rooms and restaurants.

We love our backyard and the coziness of our home. We love hanging out in downtown Healdsburg yet get a complete different experience when we come home. We are convinced you will enjoy it as much as we do.


- Before inquiring please CHECK our CALENDAR. It is always up to date so if the days you are interested in are open it means our home is available.

- There is a minimum of 3 to 4 nights for major holidays (Labor Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas etc...)

- It's a bit of a windy road to get up to our secluded retreat.

- This is a 3 level home so there are lots of steps which may not be ideal for someone with mobility issues.

- There is off-street parking for 3 cars right in front of our home

We look forward to hearing from you!

About Nez & Brent

We love to travel and discover new cultures. Traveling is our passion. Healdsburg is our little sanctuary to relax from our busy daily lives. We love being in the middle of nature and walking distance to the river where we spend our summers floating and relaxing. We also love the proximity to town and to all the wonderful world class restaurants and wineries.

Why Nez & Brent chose Healdsburg

We got married in Healdsburg so this place is very special to us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Nez and Brent were beyond wonderful. As soon as our request was accepted Nez emailed me a detailed outline about various restaurants, tasting rooms, wineries, and other activities in the Healdsburg area. All were very helpful — especially the restaurants! Their home is no more than a 10 minute drive from the center of town. It is beautifully situated in the mountains and has a gorgeous outdoor area to sit and enjoy wine after a relaxing day. My family and I could not have picked a better place to stay, or more welcoming people than Nez and Brent.

Spacious House with Amazing Balcony and Ammenities

  • 5 of 5

My group couldn't have asked for a better stay at Nez and Brent's home. After booking, they sent over a ton of recommendations and provided detailed instructions upon arrival. The two bathrooms worked out perfectly for our group, as well as the well-equipped kitchen.

We went on a hike that's accessible directly from the home with a great view of the town. We were in town for a wedding and didn't run into any difficulty sourcing Ubers to the home. It's about a 10-15 minute drive to the town, which made exploring that much easier. Tons of shops and restaurants in the area as well.

5 Stars! Would definitely stay again - their hospitality was phenomenal.

Beautiful Home in the Hills

  • 5 of 5

Nez and Brent's vacation home was the perfect getaway for our family! The home is nestled in the hills just a short 5 minute drive from downtown Healdsburg. There are numerous tasting rooms and restaurants to choose from in the downtown area. We also put the kitchen to use one night, and ate dinner out on the patio under the awesome string lights! We will definitely be back soon!

Very nice mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stylishly furnished, comfortable home 10 minutes from downtown Healdsburg. Has everything you need and upside down layout (kitchen and one bedroom upstairs, another bedroom on lower level and third bedroom on lowest level) functions perfectly. Owners very helpful and polite!

The owner's description was spot on for this lovely holiday home - we enjoyed our stay immensely!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect base to explore the area from.

We were a party of 5 with 2 kids (10 and 13), parents and grandfather (72). The three levels were great to provide just the right amount of space for us all, and we appreciated the little welcoming touches our hosts had provided. Our kids were delighted with the games room and those inner tubes were great for our day at Spring Lake. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Where do you live?

The property was as advertised including the numerous steps to access the property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific family visit to Healdsburg. Nez could not have been more accommodating including checking with me about the number of stairs before booking our family. We were able access both Sonoma and Napa from the house as well as the coast. Our pace was decidedly slow, so the location was perfect in its privacy and solitude.

Finally, the quality of the hosts adds a great deal to a visit. Nez made sure we celebrated my mother's birthday with sweet treats- a treat that was in no way required but much appreciated.

not what I expected

  • 3 of 5

The house was not easy to find and there are 48 steps from the road to the door with the lock, not easy for people with knee problems and/or alot of luggage. The house was very clean and well equipped. The bottom bedroom occupants have to go up a flight of stairs and thru the bedroom on the middle floor to use the bathroom. The soaking tub was a delight. All and all it was more than adequate for my needs but much farther away from town than anticipated

Owner's Response: We appreciate your feedback and are sorry to hear this is not what you expected. Our listing clearly states that our home is not meant for guests with mobility issues and that we have a lot of steps which lead to an incredible view. Same goes for the shared bathroom. The fact that our home is secluded while very close to town is what makes it so special and what our guests love. We are glad however to hear that everything else was more than adequate for your needs. Nez & Brent
