This is a great location. It's somewhat secluded, but only 15 minutes from Healdsberg, so not too far away. We had 3 couples for a wine country getaway and everyone really enjoyed staying here. The owner Dylan is very responsive with any issues. The kitchen and living areas upstairs were awesome and great for eating, hanging out, etc. There are four bedrooms--the master is very nice. The two downstairs are a little dated but still worked out fine. Overall would definitely recommend this location to others.
This home worked so well for our 4 couples with king size beds and bathrooms for all! We thoroughly enjoyed all of the entertainment areas of the house inside and outside!! The house was close to so many wonderful wineries and also a short drive to the beautiful coast.
I took my employees up to the wine country for the week. The house was perfectly located and had everything we needed. Pool, hot tub....::wine!!!
Our group of 8 adults enjoyed staying in this beautiful home. Thank you Dylan for be so attentive to all our questions and needs.
The home was fantastic and even better than the pictures . The views from all sides were unbelievable . The owner was so much help with everything ! What a great place for four couples to go wine tasting . Each late afternoon everyone just wanted to go back to the house instead of going out to do something else. We could of not enjoyed a more perfect home !
Great property for four couples. Easy access to wineries and the coast
Property was really clean and well equipped. The pool was warm and hot tub was hot! Beds were comfortable. Would definitely book again if in the area.
Nearby Healdsburg is quintessential Northern California. A beautiful, historic and charming town, over 150 years old, with a gracious central square, huge old redwoods and well preserved vintage Victorian homes. It is in a premier wine producing region of famous Sonoma County, and retains its quieter, rural and small town feel, unlike its larger neighbor, Napa to the east. It strikes just the right balance between upscale and gentrified, with world class restaurants, shopping and galleries, without losing touch with its farming heritage.
Healdsburg offers countless activities, including wine tasting, cycling, hiking, kayaking, golfing, boating and fishing, and is offers the perfect place to explore the rugged California coast, the redwood forests and the abundant wine regions of Sonoma, Napa and Mendocino counties.
If its wine you’re after, you will have over 100 wineries to choose from, between the Alexander, Dry Creek, Russian River and Napa valleys, all within a short drive of the town.
Dry Creek Valley is a premium growing area lying at the foot of Lake Sonoma which feeds the creek that runs through the vineyards, connecting up to the Russian River, and flowing out to the Pacific Ocean, 30 miles to the west. Located on the West side of the Dry Creek Valley, West Dry Creek Rd is one of the most beautiful country roads in America. Surrounded by vineyards, boutique wineries, and old growth oaks and redwoods, this area is perfect for a morning stroll or an afternoon bike ride. A short drive will take you to the Healdsburg plaza where the many restaurants, boutiques, galleries and cafes offer a perfect way to spend a few hours or a day.
A few miles to the north is Lake Sonoma, a popular area for boating, waterskiing and fishing, while the many wineries will satisfy the most discerning tastes. A picnic basket and a delicious bottle of wine on the lawn offer the perfect way to spend an afternoon.
For the more adventurous, the California coast beckons with a day trip out to the west and a windy drive through the redwoods down Skaggs Springs Road to the sea.
In the springtime the fields are yellow with mustard plants, while the abundant fruit trees are in full blossom, and the road is lined with daffodils, lilies and wild flowers. The vines are just beginning to bud while the ground is moist from the spring rains and verdant green grasses are abundant. Colors are everywhere and the landscape is alive.
Summertime brings the dry Mediterranean heat that will have you lounging by the pool or taking long lazy naps in the hammock. The vines are full and becoming heavy with their fruit while the days are long. Mornings are great for bike riding or hiking, before the sun becomes too strong. Late afternoon is a perfect time for a leisurely stroll along the quiet lanes, or to take a picnic down to the river.
The fall is a busy time, as the leaves turn from a lush green to purple, and pink, red, yellow and orange. The grapes are heavy on the vines, and the vineyards are bustling with workers bringing in the harvest. The spruce and plum and maples bring bright splashes of color and contrast to the landscape.The air is fresh as the cooler breath of winter approaches.
Winter is a reflective time. The fields are quiet and the morning fog and cool winter showers bring a peaceful quality to the area. Thoughts turn to wood burning stoves, delicious home cooked meals, puzzles or games of scrabble and a good book. The hot tub is a perfect place to laze and enjoy the crisp air or the bright evening sky.
