About this listing
Welcome to Quail's Roost. As owners of The Bungalow B&B on Clear Lake we know how much people need a break from the everyday. When we want a great getaway we head to our cozy vintage cabin on Fitch Mountain in Healdsburg.
Walk up the stairs into the private yard and you'll see that this modest 1100 sq.ft. cabin is nestled in the trees just across from Camp Rose beach. There are filtered river views from both our large decks - set up for sunning and relaxing.
We love well-behaved dogs so the yard is completely fenced as a safe haven. Pet sitting is available most of the time for a nominal fee.
Our comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 bath home sleeps 4 (1 king, 1 queen tempurpedic), all linens and towels are provided. There is a completely equipped kitchen. You're also welcome to use the washer and dryer. The open living room has a tree house feel with tree top views. It's equipped with a large flat screen TV, cable and classic films. PSthree and games available, just ask. If you want to stay connected there is high-speed (average 20mb/s) internet access and a small office to set up your computer.
Even better, you can grab the umbrella, towels and a couple of beach chairs and relax by the river because it's just across the street. A bend in the Russian River creates a large beach and a wonderful safe swimming area.
Quails' Roost is perfectly situated for exploring. Healdsburg square is just 2 miles away. There are numerous shops, restaurants and wineries to enjoy in town. Within minutes there are too many terrific wineries to mention. Healdsburg also offers bike, canoe and kayak rentals. The charming plaza hosts numerous events.
When you arrive there is off-street parking for 2 midsize cars. Our caretakers, Len and Laura, who live on the property, will greet you and answer any questions you might have.
Please remember this is a non-smoking home.
No smoking inside.
No dogs on the furniture. Please pick up after your pet outside.
Everything was as advertised. The house was clean and well stocked. The beds and the towels were luxurious. The kitchen was easy to cook in.
The house was set up perfectly for our dogs, who had easy access to the backyard and 1 million new smells to explore.
All in all, it was a very nice place to stay.
We were greeted warmly and introduced to our home away from home. Our host showed us around and helped us get settled.
The cottage was well appointed with everything we needed. Bed and bedding were very comfortable. Very accessible to Healdsburg and surrounding vineyards. Thank you.
My family and I really enjoyed our Stay at Quail's roost. The property caretakers met us at the property and showed us around. They offered us freshly ground coffee upon our arrival.
The property's location was superb- only 2 miles away from downtown Healdsburg. The two bedrooms were very comfortable and the shower had great water pressure. I only wish there was a bit more natural light in the common spaces.
The property was very welcoming, the arrival and departure was hassle free. There are caretakers that live in the lower part of the house (very separate from the airbnb/private) who were there if we needed anything. There were even floaties for the river, and an offer of free pet sitting for our little dog!
The cabin is very close to Healdsburg town, you can easily bike or drive in (walk might be a bit far). They also have a/c units throughout the house, making it very comfortable in the summer. The deck out the back was lovely for dinner, and we spent most of our free time with local wine and cheese relaxing there.
Next time I'm in Healdsburg I am definitely staying here!
We were met at the door even though we were off schedule due to traffic. Great house with great views. They thought of everything to make us comfortable. It's all in the details! The AC was especially nice while getting ready for a wedding and rushing around. We will go back but next time with our dogs. Truly nice people. Large and charming.
We had a great stay and a wonderful time at Quail's Roost! The house is very comfortable and is located just far enough from downtown to be relaxing yet close enough to get to everything in a few minutes. The river is quite low this year, but we still managed to have a lot of fun swimming and kayaking. Our accomodations made our stay in Healdsburg easy and fun.
We felt completely welcome and comfortable. The house was lovely--especially the deck and the very comfy beds!--and it was right across from a river access point where we watched a river otter eat fish most of the afternoon.
About the Host, Mike & Kathey
We're retired school teachers who have a second career as owners of The Bungalow B&B on Clear Lake. Since we're originally from Sonoma County when we want a great getaway we head to our cabin on Fitch Mountain in Healdsburg. There's nothing better than sitting out on the deck relaxing and enjoying a glass of local wine.
