Updated Healdsburg River Cottage: Minutes from Plaza, Tasting Rooms & Vineyards

Updated Healdsburg River Cottage: Minutes from Plaza, Tasting Rooms & Vineyards


Property Details

Updated: Oct 29, 2014
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This Cottage on Fitch Mountain is a perfect retreat for a couple or a small family. Recently fully renovated, the cottage offers modern comforts and sleek style distinctly influenced by its mid-century roots.

Centrally located for a wine country vacation yet only a five minute walk from the Russian River, three miles from the Healdsburg Plaza and less than 10 minutes away from wine tasting in the Alexander Valley, Russian River Valley and Dry Creek Valley.

This cottage was originally built as a vacation home on the Russian River. The entire building was renovated to modern standards then decorated in a classic 1940s theme. It retains the charm and feel of a country vacation rental with modern conveniences. The cottage has easy access to the River, the Healdsburg Plaza and the surrounding wine area.

The cottage has an open living and dining room, one bedroom, one bath and a full kitchen. The kitchen has a gas stove and modern appliances. The dining room has an oversized table with plenty of room to spread out and enjoy a meal, a game or to plan the next day's adventure. The living room of this vacation rental is furnished with a leather sofa and a leather loveseat and several large ottomans to curl up in for conversation or to enjoy a movie on Netflix.

The master bedroom has a luxuriously comfortable queen sized bed and classic mid century era antiques. The bathroom sports classic white subway and hex tiles and a claw foot tub.

Upstairs is a sleeping loft with a full sized bed and library area with low ceilings. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer and a patio with a picnic table out back. The front porch has a semi-private enclosed sitting area.

The house is designed for two people but there is room for a couple of kids upstairs in the sleeping loft. On one side of the loft is a library with a comfy reading chair. The other side has a full sized futon bed on a sleeping platform.

With more space, more privacy and more amenities, make your own breakfast, pack a picnic for the afternoon and fix a romantic dinner with fresh produce found in our local markets. This Healdsburg vacation rental is a comfortable home base for your Wine Country vacation.

Owners were very nice people to deal with. Great location for touring that part of wine country. Cottage was very well equipped. Slept soundly every night.

If I say too much good about the place I'm afraid they will raise the rates when they realize what a value it is.

Comfy rental

  • 5 of 5
We rented the cottage for our wedding anniversary and had a fantastic stay. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable. The only thing you will need to bring if you stay here are some of the delicious snacks from Big John's and a bottle of wine...or two. Thank you for a great weekend!

Wine retreat

  • 5 of 5
If you are seeking peace and solitude this is the place. The cottage is warm and cozy and comes with many amenities. Upstairs in the loft I read a book and drank a glass of Pinot noir. In the early evening before sundown, a stroll down the street to the river's path was beautiful. Sun glistening off the water. Birds telegraphing to each other and the sound of the current gently going by. Then of course are the wineries.

Charming, Cozy and comfort

  • 5 of 5
This home is very comfortable decorated to add charm, and supplied with all-just like you are at home. I rented place for rest and relaxation. The listing description and photos are very much accurate. Property was extremely clean and very well maintained. During my stay I had questions and the owners responded immediately. Very close to the plaza to enjoy all the activities Healdsburg offers. My all time favorite was walking down the block to enjoy the river setting amidst trees and mountain views. I recommend this property to friends and others. I will rent again. Thank you John and Monique for sharing your home in the country. I will rent again.

The Perfect Respite

  • 5 of 5
Even though it looks small from the front, it actually is quite roomy inside. The furnishings were stylish, comfortable, and in excellent condition. The kitchen was immaculate and well equipped, but we did almost no cooking. There was a laundry room with detergent and dryer sheets. This was pleasant surprise. There was also a coffee maker with coffee, cream and sugar. My favorite part was the loft which my husband steered clear of. It had a comfortable leather chair, tons of books, and a queen sized bed. The stairs are steep so take care if you have been wine tasting.
When we arrived the owner greeted us. He had opened all the windows and the wonderful aroma of honeysuckle permeated the whole house. He explained the tv and dishwasher and couldn't have been any nicer.
Be prepared though, the three mile ride up the winding roads takes some getting use to , but it's worth it to stay in such a quiet, peaceful setting.
We were both sorry when we had to leave. Loved it!

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5
We were very happy with this property: a well-equipped kitchen as stated, clean, well taken care of and quiet. What was promised was delivered. The one thing we were quite unhappy about, however, was the lack of broadcast TV. What we got instead was Netflix through the Internet, which was abominably slow. For the money we paid, we cannot understand the owners not offering what basic motels offer: broadcast TV. Other than than, a lovely place.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear how happy you were with the property and how much you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry that there were problems with the speed of the cable modem. I wish you would have called and I would have come over and reset it for you. The properties up here have occasional service disruptions and resetting the modem usually fixes it. This is only the second report we have had so it's usually okay.

Wolfie's stay in Healdsburg!

Wolfie's stay in Healdsburg!

We arrived knowing not what to expect & found the most perfect holiday cottage we could wish to find! All the home comforts were thought of from fat bath robes, home cinema & a cozy sofa with blankets through to books, music and the all essential coffee machine all of which were greatly appreciated after our travels. There was wi-fi & telephone to keep connected with the world with all the practical essentials for day to day life if you wished to embrace them (washer/dryer/dish washer/kitchen essentials etc etc etc). The cute mezzanine floor up the spiral staircase to the open plan library & second bedroom made the stay feel extra novel & holiday like (we chose to stay up there whilst shutting the baby to sleep in the master bedroom!). Having the river at our doorstep was so great as we could just stroll out without making a plan for the entire day & packing the kitchen sink (although that option was also catered for with all the picnic equipment & tourist info you could need + close drive to town/countryside).

Anyway we had a really great time our only regret is we didn't get to use the BBQ garden/patio & our stay was a little short... fingers crossed we'll return

Thankyou very much Jem, Mischa & Woflie

From the Owner

The location is perfect for a wine country vacation. Fitch Mountain is cooler at night and the easy river lifestyle is perfect for relaxing at the end of the day. The cottage is only a few minutes from wine tasting, the Plaza and everything Healdsburg.

From the Owner

We love to enjoy the vacation atmosphere of staying on Fitch Mountain. We especially enjoy the front porch and walking down to enjoy the river. In the summer, we love to take our nieces and nephews to swim and play in the river.
