Wine Country Lodge's owner, Lisa Neisingh, was raised in Sonoma County, where she enjoyed vacations with her family at their summer home in Occidental.
Wanting to share similar getaway experiences with her children and others, she bought Firefly Lodge
in 2003, in the vicinity of her great grandparents' home at Healdsburg's historic river resort, Camp Rose.
Soon after, Lisa, she bought three, additional, nearby riverfront homes, and has been inviting guests ever since. The homes are elegant, rustic residences; that are both casual and eye appealing. Each home comfortably accommodates guests seeking a place to gather for memorable retreats with family and friends.
The very restful, natural settings offer guests a welcome respite from urban life. Each home enjoys an incredibly beautiful and unspoiled natural environment. Our family enjoys filling these wonderful riverfront homes with comfortable furnishings, beautiful amenities, and the opportunity to enjoy a choice of many adventurous and leisurely activities, to the delight of guests.
Thank you to our guests for all of their glowing comments.
We are so thrilled that such wonderful times were had by all, and that we were able to play a part in making that happen. We enjoyed working with all of you and hope you'll return again, soon!

“I was searching for a rustic riverfront getaway - the kind I remembered as a child - a place to go with family and friends and leave the cares of the world behind! I wanted it not too fussy... so it would have that 'relaxing' feeling. I wanted it to be waterfront, with plenty of beautiful views and fun water activities. I wanted it to have a big, covered deck, and plenty of room around the table. I looked for a LONG time, and when I finally found Firefly, I felt, 'This is it!', and the family fun began! Now 11 years later we have shared this great home with thousands of guests from far and near and have made wonderful friends and memories, with many guests returning year after year.”
