Great location beautiful private setting

  • 4 of 5
This is a great spot if you can find it in the dark. Flight delays resulted in a late arrival Friday evening and it was difficult to find with the directions we had (mapquest is to blame here). We saw some deer right from the deck and used some tomatoes from the garden. We had difficulty getting the bbq to light properly. We tried to contact the owner several times during our stay but did not hear back from until after we had left. That is the only reason I'm not giving this an excellent rating.

Only a few minutes from downtown Healdsburg. Safeway market is closest supermarket. Just up the hill from Westside Road wineries. The deck is large and a nice place to sit. View of the woods. Pool table and full Directv. Comfy bed upstairs. Only cautions: No freezer or stovertop in kitchenette. One Bathroom, upstairs. We enjoyed our stay and would be back.

Relaxing stay in the Oaks

  • 4 of 5
The house is very nice and very easy too find. It is not that far of a drive from downtown Healdsburg. We enjoyed our time at the cottage quit a bit. We made breakfast (which even thought there is no stove using the grill is quit easy). We enjoyed the huge back deck that the house had as well. We spent most of our time at the cottage either out on the deck or up in the loft bedroom. The furniture in the downstairs area is old and dusty and with all of the allergy problems my wife has she refused to sit on them. The bedroom upstairs and the rest of the house was very clean though. The furniture upstairs was very nice and we found that to be where we chilled and watched TV in the evenings. There is also a pool table downstairs that was fun to have in the evenings at the house as well. The bed was so comfortable I can't believe we got out of it in the mornings. Overall we had one of the best weekends away at a house we have ever had.

There were a couple of negatives though. One was the covers on the furniture downstairs were really old and dusty. Two was usually you have a book of instructions to go by for what needs to be done when arriving and leaving the house, there was not a book or any other instructions or information. The third issue wasn't a bad one just kind of annoying. When we first looked for a place we looked for quite and seclusion. We knew this house was adjacent to the owners house but all of the prior reviews said they were really private and nice. We did get a chance to meet them as they were headed off for the weekend and they were nice. The problem was all of the traffic on and off of the property. There were about four different cars in all that drove by at all hours of the day making the seclusion and privacy seem like that of a normal hotel/motel. This is the only reason it gets a four star from me and not a five star.

A great retreat! We wanted a quiet, peaceful setting with nature surrounding us and that is exactly what we got! We loved our stay! Everything was comfortable, clean and convenient to downtown and close to everything we wanted! Visited many local vineyards and talked with many nice locals! We would definitely come back! Big Johns Market...great, Healdsburg General Store...fun, All vineyards...awesome!

A perfect Healdsburg getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a pleasant surprise! Driving up through the beautiful gate to the cottage was even better than we expected after reading these reviews! The cottage was spacious, very clean, and deliciously quiet and secluded. Exactly what we needed this weekend...and the weather cooperated completely. Our golden retriever has now claimed the property as her own - she thoroughly enjoyed running and playing in the garden as well as exploring the woods - we spent some time in the sun on the large and lovely deck, listening to the birds...ah, it was fantastic - thank you Don and Janette for sharing your wonderful place with us...It was an ideal location for enjoying Healdsburg - we toured Hafner Winery and Topel Tasting room...and walked all over town - the best breakfast was at Costeaux Bakery, and we really liked our dinner at Baci - Thanks again!
