vacation rental description

Riverwood Lodge is a spacious, private vacation home in a lovely riverfront setting just 1.2 miles from the city limits of Healdsburg.  (You may visit our WineCountryLodges website to view more than 80 photos of this property.)  Riverwood is located in a prized area of Sonoma County Wine Country, at the point where the Russian River flows through three world renown wine producing valleys (Dry Creek, Alexander, and Russian River Valleys). The resort-like location includes private beachfront and plenty of opportunity for outdoor activities.  Occupancy is limited to 8 overnight guests, plus children under three.


This peaceful and relaxing, lodge-like home is large and accomodating, with its recreation room level, decks, gathering places, and an impressive great room making it the perfect setting for guests of all ages and interests, and a great home base from which to explore the region.

The decor is of high quality, and reflective of our wooded location and historical roots. This area was known as the Healdsburg Russian River Resort Area from the late 1920's and retains its unspoiled natural beauty, and relaxing peacefulness, to this day.  The home offers a private beach, riverside decks, and a relaxing spa.

From quiet retreats, to family reunions, to weekend getaways with great friends, everyone enjoys sharing cozy gatherings around the warmth of the stone fireplace in the great room with its log mantle, leather sofas, and warm, glowing fire.  The dining room is also truly dramatic, with high, open beamed ceilings and a huge custom dining table that seats twelveand has river views. 

The completely supplied kitchen will please the chef in your group, both with its Heartland gas range that's completely modern, but designed to look like an antique wood burning stove.  There's also an hand crafted log table and chairs, an antler chandelier, and bay windows overlooking the river and passing canoes, that's a wonderful place to share intimate meals.  

 The large covered deck has patio dining furniture and a Weber gas grill. A riverview spa for five, kayaks, and a private beach for seasonal swimming and sun bathing.

Two Master Bedrooms on main level have new California King beds (8/09).
All our guestrooms pamper you with very comfortable, high quality mattresses, down-alternative comforters, and fine white linens.  We use allergy guard encasements  for mattresses, pillows and comforters for our guest's protection and peace of mind.
Riverwood Lodge's casual, rustic, elegance and its careful provision for its guests' comfort and enjoyment, make this a great wine country getaway, close & convenient to everything Wine Country has to offer.

There's a large indoor recreation room with comfortable log furniture, a huge TV that attracts the younger set, and a full size ping pong table that engages all ages in friendly tournaments.

activities and attractions in Healdsburg Wine Country

Riverwood Lodge is located along a scenic stretch of the Russian River, and yet only two and 1/2 miles from Healdsburg's picturesque town plaza. Golf links are located one mile away. Its location make it the perfect place for a quiet retreat while being in the center of all that Sonoma Wine Country has to offer.
Activities include dining in award winning restaurants; visiting nearby wineries and tasting rooms; sight seeing; buying fresh local produce at the farm; cycling throughout this widely acclaimed region; visiting natural hot spring spas, ancient redwood groves, and scenic Pacific Ocean beaches; enjoying hot air balloon rides over the vineyards; plus the delight of shopping in Healdsburg, dipping into its art galleries, book stores, museums, or attending a live performance at the Raven Theater. Arrangements can be made for organized tours, limousine service, bicycle and canoe rentals. 

Things to explore: We are located directly on the Russian River with our own private beach, on the outskirts of Healdburg, where you'll find the historic town plaza surrounded by charming shops, restaurants, antique emporiums, art galleries, and winery tasting rooms. There are opportunities for great dining, winery tours, and scenic drives to enjoy the beauty of the surrounding countryside.  Our location is a great place from which to enjoy cycling, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. Lake Sonoma in nearby Dry Creek Valley offers jet and water skiing, a fish hatchery and natural history museum. Twenty five minutes away are ancient redwood groves at Armstrong Grove State Park. It takes just  40 minutes to arrive at sandy ocean beaches where you can enjoy tide pooling, beach combing, and picnicking. Or, buy fresh caught fish, unloaded and filleted at the dock, and order delicious clam chowder at the Tides Wharf Restaurant. Other daytrip suggestions include sojourns into neighboring Napa Valley, just over the hills from Healdsburg, via scenic, vineyard bordered and forested roads. While there, you will certainly want to visit some of Napa's famous wineries, and you may want to try the natural mineral, or mud baths at one of the many spas in Calistoga, or great shops and restaurants in St. Helena. There are so many things to do, and Riverwood is centrally located for easy access to all that Healdsburg, and all that surrounding Wine Country, have to offer. Riverwood seems worlds apart, but is located just 70 miles north of San Francisco, and in the very heart Sonoma County, an incomparable, world-class wine producing region.
