About this listing
This Cottage on Fitch Mountain is a perfect retreat for a couple or a small family. 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 very ceilings. It is wonderful for one or two children or a smaller adult. 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.
Please enjoy the house and take care of it as though it were your own. We request that you bring no pets and smoke outside only. The house is on septic so please be super gentle to the plumbing (tissue only, no chemicals). At the end of your stay, there are a few check out items that insure we can prepare the house for the next guest in a timely manner - just as we are able to do for you. To avoid excessive cleaning charges, please take a few moments to remove food and trash brought in and place in the outside trash bin, load and start dishwasher, clean grill if you used it and wipe down the kitchen appliances. Although we hope you are able to do these things, if you prefer not to, we will have the extra cleaning costs charged against your security deposit.
The house was very relaxing and clean. It was very easy to find and very accessible to the town and to the river. It was a one of kind experience and we hope to bring our children and families to stay in the future. Thank you again for renting to us we are so grateful!
Monique and John were very gracious about welcoming us, despite a several hour traffic delay on our end. The house was cozy and comfortable and indeed a very short walk to the river. It's also just a few minute's drive to the lovely Healdsburg Plaza, home of book stores and excellent coffee!
Renting from Monique was very easy. Quick & great communication leading up to our stay. The place was exactly as described and looked even better than in the pictures. We loved the back yard area for our morning coffee. The river is a short walk and was absolutely gorgeous. Would certainly stay here again.
The house was great. Just enough space for what we needed. Close walk to the river and just a few minute drive to downtown Healdsburg. Kids loved the cabin feel and sleeping in the loft :)
The place was perfect! Very clean and comfortable. It had everything you would need for a great stay. Walking to the river was such a nice treat. Would recommend to anyone.
We really enjoyed our stay at Monique's home. My husband and I were looking for last minute accommodations for a weekend in Healdsburg with my parents and Monique was very quick to reply to our initial request. The accommodations were as described and had everything we needed for a weekend in wine country. It's a short walk to the river and short drive to the beautiful Healdsburg Plaza. Monique was very accommodating with our arrival time and her husband John was there to greet us and give us a quick overview of the home and surrounding area. We made the most of the back patio which was perfect for grilling and enjoying some fresh air.
The upstairs loft was with the second bed was comfy for a weekend trip, but might start to feel cramped for two tall(ish) adults staying for an extended period of time as a result of the sloped ceiling.
All in all, everyone was very happy with the accommodations and loved retreating there after a long day of wine tasting
Thank you Monique!
Great location not far from the city center and right off the river. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed, the hosts were easy to get in contact with, and we would recommend to our friends & family!
About the Host, Monique
I love living in Healdsburg. I have the vineyards, the ocean, the redwoods, the river, San Francisco, the Sierras, small town boutiques and big town shopping all within driving distance.
