Fitch Mountain Lookout is a fantastic 2000 square foot vacation home perched on the south side (the sunny side!) of Fitch Mountain in Healdsburg. We have a full kitchen, three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a double-sized living room, a dining room, an office area, and two decks. Enjoy outdoor dining on the main deck beside the kitchen, or relax in the hot tub on the second deck. All rooms have spectacular views over the Russian River valley.

We are 2 miles (5 minute drive) from the Healdsburg town square. We are a few minutes walk to the river and a semi-private beach for swimming. We are located in a beautiful rural neighborhood and frequently see deer, eagles, and osprey from the decks.

LIVING ROOM

The double-sized living room features a 12-foot picture window that provides a spectacular view of the valley. The living room has cathedral ceilings, a gas fireplace, and ample room for relaxing and entertaining. We provide a widescreen TV with basic cable, a home theater surround sound system, and a DVD/MP3/CD player. You can connect your MP3 player or laptop player directly to the home theater system for great sounding music. Warm by the fire on one of the two leather LA-Z-BOY recliners or enjoy the view from the sofa in front of the large picture window.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Merry Christmas! What a great home to spend our Christmas in. We friends were away from family, but made ourselves at home for a wonderful Christmas meal. We travelled from Healdsburg to Medicino to Santa Rosa, and tried wines in Anderson Valley, the Russian River and Dry Creek areas. We laughed a lot, and credit that to our comfort in your house. Thanks.

Wonderful, well-managed vacation home

  • 4 of 5

Fitch Mountain Lookout (FML) was a great vacation home for our family of 5. The house was immaculately cleaned prior to our arrival (which we appreciated). We've rented many vacation homes and FML, by far, was the most well-stocked, fully-functional home we have ever rented. The location is also great being just on the edge of the town of Healdsburg.

We will definitely be back.

Wonderful time in bike (wine) country

  • 5 of 5

Traveled to Healdsburg for the Santa Rosa Ironman. Our family of four had a terrific time. The location just outside of town was a plus - convenient and quiet. The house is well appointed with clean, comfortable furniture and beds, plenty of towels and dishes, the views are amazing, and the property manager Victoria and the owner were responsive and helpful. We would stay here again. For young kids (ours are 4 and 6) the Children's Museum of Sonoma and the SOAR inflatable 1/2 day river float were highlights. If travelling by GPS I'd recommend adjusting to take the 2nd turn onto the road the house is on (the narrow roads are a loop - and it's not the shortest, so not the default).

Beautiful, spacious spaces for family/friends to gather.

  • 4 of 5

The location was fairly close to both Sonoma and Nappa Valley. Cost was higher than we wanted but the kitchen was supplied with needed items. The bathrooms were located only in the lower floor which was inconvenient for the upper two floors. Quiet neighbors, and great communication with the owner and property manager.

Wine Country Get-away

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Fitch Mountain Lookout for a long weekend of wine tasting! When we arrived, we were greeted by deer grazing on the hill right outside the expansive living room window. We continued to enjoy the view out the window all weekend. Each morning, we watched the fog burn off while being entertained by beautiful blue birds playing in the trees. The house was perfect for watching playoff games each evening! There are also many games to choose from, so no need to bring your own. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well appointed. The house is quiet and out of the way, yet very close to town! Both bathrooms on the bottom floor is the only downside. That set up makes the top floor bedroom a challenge for a person needing the bathroom in the night. That being said, I would rent this house again!

Perfect home in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful rental home in Healdsburg! Perfect location for exploring Sonoma wine country and the northern California coast. Very clean, well-kept and cared for home, with lots of natural light from the huge picture window overlooking the river below. Wish it had been sunnier for us to enjoy the view. Thoroughly enjoyed the warmth from the fireplace! Three bedrooms were perfect for our three couples - though master bedroom was up a winding set of stairs from the two bathrooms. Lots of extra linens and a well stocked kitchen were appreciated. Nice, comfortable, and roomy living room area. Such a lovely home and area to visit .... would love to go back again soon!

Can't wait to be able to return---Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at FML. There is nothing more joyous than having your family under one roof. Everything needed (except food) was provided. The house was so well equipped and lots of games for the kids for their down time! I would highly recommend FML but afraid by doing so it may not be available when we want to go again! Loved this house, the views, the accommodations, access to river, the decks--best weekend house ever! Hope to return again--Thank you Stephen Boyle....and the photographs on the walls are amazing Thanks for sharing! The Bowen/Korntved family.
