Healdsburg Taxi is a phone call away for those who want to go out for the evening and not drive.
Well behaved pets are welcome.
The property is very much as depicted and described. It has a cabin feeling in that it is rustic and cozy, and yet it is well appointed for your comfort. My husband and I stayed 3 nights in February and could have stayed a week! The wood burning fireplace/heater along with the portable heaters made it plenty warm at night. Not sure how comfortable it would be in the heat of summer.
Beautiful view, large deck, nice neighborhood all good. Sits at the very top of a 2 mile hill, so no walking to town , but that was not limiting to the experience in any way - It added. Excellent location for wine tasting and 3 min drive to town.
Hildy was perfect - made herself available and totally left us alone. It's up to you.
I recommend this property. You will love it! And oh yes....the record collection!!!!!!! Made the experience extra special.
Thank you Lorie for the kind words. Just a little clarification. Hilltop Road is 3 miles from the center of town. Our road has a gentle easy grade to get to the cabin from the main road, and is An easy gentle slope....but we do have a trail that is. Dedicated open space for hikers, just outside our back door and that trail is a good hike, uphill and probably is a couple of miles each way.
My husband, sister-in-law and brother-in-law, and I had a fabulous stay at Hildy's cabin! We rented the cabin itself and the studio downstairs, so we did not make use of the loft space.
Hildy was incredibly welcoming and responsive - she met us at the cabin upon arrival to show us the studio (she let us decide on the spot if we wanted it) and gave us a quick tour of everything. We also locked ourselves out of the studio at one point (very easy to do), and she answered her phone immediately to tell us where the spare key was.
The cabin was so cozy - we absolutely loved the fireplace and record collection - these elements totally made the trip. The beds were comfortable as well. Nothing negative to say! We'll be back.
We had a really lovely three-night stay at Hildy's cabin and rented both spaces so that my husband's best friend and his wife could join us. This was our first airbnb experience, and we are considering doing it for a separate "apartment" at our house, so I was interested to see how it would go. Hildy was very accommodating and always accessible, and that made all the difference in the world. Thank you, Hildy, and we hope to see you again!
This is a lovely cottage above Healdsburg that exceeded my expectations! Everything was immaculate, thoughtfully arranged, and comfortable. We made good use of the deck and grill and enjoyed the cozy fireplace. But the real bonus was the extensive record collection--the soundtrack of my life! Hildy is an outstanding host and so very helpful. We will be back!
Absolutely lovely cottage -- perfect setting, great space and Hildy was wonderful about providing recommendations. It's about a 12 minute drive to downtown Healdsburg, so if you want to be in the middle of everything might not be ideal; however, we preferred the secluded and scenic environment and parking in downtown Healdsburg was easy.
