Why Ed Newell chose Healdsburg
You will leave NewTree Ranch totally relaxed and revitalized by the peace and health you will receive during your stay.
What makes this Estate unique
Seed to table eating on a fully equipped Ranch only 3.8 miles from Healdsburg and 1 hour from San Francisco. We are a plant based ranch so you get a much better bond with the animals that are not food but here to support the farm and ranch without being harmed.

New Tree Ranch is a truly unique gem. Ed, David, Andreas, and Lyann are all lovely, caring, and welcoming people. After just a few minutes around the them (and the ranch) you can feel your blood pressure dropping. From the moment you enter the property and drive up to the spacious and thoughtfully decorated/fitted home you know special things are happening.
Although the listing/website may not promote the ranch for kids, the 4 kids (ages 2-6) that came up had an absolutely amazing time! They had a blast running around with the goats, hiking through the ranch, and of course collecting eggs in the morning for breakfast!
After just one day on the ranch we had to extend our trip. I am not sure I actually ever left New Tree, a day hasn't gone by where I don't find myself wondering the ranch in my mind...
We cannot wait to go back.
Thank you Ed, David, Andreas, and Lyann for the time you gave us.
A 5 star BDay experience with good friends
We decided to spend my 60th BDay in Healdsburg with some good friends and discovered the The New Tree Ranch. The property looked beautiful on the website but the overall experience exceeded all of our expectations ...
- The check in experience was like that of 5 star hotel
- The house was the perfect place to hang out with friends for the weekend and the tent with a hot tub provide the perfect spot for star gazing ...
- There is a marvelous garden on the ranch from which all our meals came from and with fresh eggs from the chicken coup every morning.
- We had a pizza dinner in the garden on our 1st night and the experience is hard to describe ... A very special unique experience ... not your typical wood fired pizza experience ... If there had been forest fairies flying around you would think you were in a movie :-)
- We went with a vegetarian diet for the visit which turned out to be the gourmet experience of a life time. Ed / David brought in a local chef that truly made the experience special. I have had gourmet chef meals before but the flavor experience was in the top five of my life. We had a squash bloom with stuff cheese lightly battered that was truly unique and memorable
- The BDay dinner was a 6 course meal prepared by a chef that was truly talented. And they made sure that there were enough servers that everyone's food was served at the same time ... a very nice touch.
- We did wine tasting with a group of 17 friends and Ed took care of transportation
- Throughout the visit we needed to make adjustments for additional friends joining and windy conditions and Ed and the staff took care of everything and made the who experience stress free
- For anyone looking for a special experience for a special occassion they want to share with some good friends I would highly recommend The New Tree Ranch
Every group that comes to New Tree is amazing but yours was really special. Maybe it was the energy of so many long time friends being in one place together, this is defiantly why we created the ranch. A place to spend time with family and friends in nature, thank you for trusting us with this special gift. Look forward to seeing you at your next celebration!
We have been to the wine country multiple times. The experience, created at New Tree Ranch, is by far the most memorable. We can't wait to return.
Dear Roger, Everyone enjoyed having your family & freinds at New Tree Ranch, I hope you will all return very soon.
If you have an appreciation for nature, fine things and a unique experience .....
We were a family of 6 plus a 11 month old cerebrating a 30th bday. This was such a great choice. So much to do and see leading in first with an immaculate property, much attention to details, the finest of everything and wonderful host. We loved the fridge filled with fresh produce from the ranch along with fresh daily eggs. The lighting, bedding, Sonos, several fireplaces and firepits, fresh flowers throughout the house, decor, anything you might want... It was all available! Besides the solar heated pool, there's a lake you can swim, canoe and paddle board in. Also, there's a Yurt (glamping) with a fireplace on property with a hot tub to experience something that is really special. Meeting the goats and cattle along with the chickens and adorable Dick the dog was a treat. We were so impressed with the plant based dinner they provided. The gardens you dine in are beautiful, the food delicious and experience memorable! You are only 15 minutes from Healdsburg if you want to eat out or explore. There are several wineries nearby as well. This is a fabulous property.
Healdsburg in general has cell phone connection issues... Make sure you have the gate code and accurate directions from homeowner before you head out to property as you may not have cell coverage approaching that area until you are on premises.
Thank you for brining your family to New Tree and letting us share in your family for the weekend. Dick the Dog misses everyone terribly, come back soon!
A magical retreat
What can you say when a property completely exceeds your expectations and provides the perfect setting for a long-weekend away? Relaxing by the pool, enjoying a cozy evening by the fire, and movie night all feel second nature is this beautiful ranch home. A visit to the on-property bio-dynamic farm completes the experience and reminds you what harmony with nature looks like. Have a dinner in the garden and you are transported to another world. Ed, David and his team are 5-star in every way. Be prepared to be amazed.
We are continually surprised by how much we enjoy each guest that comes to the ranch. Your family brought an energy to New Tree that will last for years to come. Thank you for spending your time with us!
An amazing experience that should not be missed!
The short version, you will not be sorry. Book and enjoy - everything!
OK, the longer version. We booked very last minute as our prior plans fell through. Ed was so responsive and quickly got everything sorted fort the next day! Because we provided very little time, Ed outlined that the majority of staff wouldn't be available as they were off. Not at all a problem for us as we wanted a pretty low profile stay.
As you head through the quiet streets you are transported to another world. Heading up the driveway you are met with the large house on the left, a barn and chickens on the right. Kids already excited. You enter the house which is expansive and thoughtfully decorated. The owners have been very thoughtful about creating experiences throughout the house, from the piano playing to the various teas left for you to drink.
We settle in and the next day we head to their farm area where they have so many types of plants growing, each with a story of their own. The owners took the time to explain how they planted each one, why they did it and what their vision of the property was.
We head back to the main house area and for the next few days, the kids were in and out of the pool, by the patio with the fire on, checking in on the chickens or heading to the private lake for a canoe ride.
We were so relaxed that we asked to extend another day and not head back to work :) Again the owners accommodated immediately. This is a place for those who want to get away from it all, enjoy the peace and quiet of nature but still have all the mod cons you would want. It was certainly hard to leave and head back home.
Thank you for an AMAZING stay that I would recommend to anyone wanting to relax, reconnect and enjoy life.
We are so happy to hear about your great stay at New Tree. We wish we would have been available to treat you to a farm to table dinner in the garden, look forward to doing it on your return. So much of the experience at New Tree depends on the guests and you and your family took in as much as we gave. Thank you for this!
