The Space

Absolutely charming Cottage on acre in wine country. Just 4 minutes to downtown Healdsburg and prominent wineries, but feels so country. View of distant hills and grapevines, bird sanctuary, quiet, private road. Sip wine on huge deck surrounded by enchanting garden, rock water fountain, meditation hut. Cottage is well appointed with upscale everything...artistic, tasteful and comfortable in every detail. Very clean. Wood burning fireplace, terrific kitchen, WIFI, big CD and book collection, big screen TV. Very comfortable, calming, eco vibe.

Contact owner regarding rate, as rate is flexible depending on demand and length of stay. ALWAYS CONTACT ME ABOUT AVAILABILITY PRIOR TO BOOKING!! Calendar is not always up to date.

Check In
  • Thank you for the great stay! We spent a long weekend at Risa's cottage and it was everything we could have asked for. Very secluded and quiet, and located about a mile away from downtown. Will definitely be visiting again.

  • We loved this charming home. It was so warm and inviting and the ultimate relaxation spot. We felt like we were so far removed from the hustle and bustle, yet we were only a couple minutes from downtown Healdsburg. We will definitely be back!

  • The Eco Charmer was absolutely perfect for our stay in the wine country. There is a gorgeous patio that we hung out on and had breakfast in the morning. It was really close to downtown healdsburg and very easy to get to. Risa was a wonderful host and left the house unlocked for us to come in and check out with no hassle. Thank you!

  • We had a bit of trouble getting in touch with the host. Once we did, however, she answered our questions quickly. We were assured that we would not be sharing the house with anyone and that only a caretaker lived on the one-acre property in another building. On our second night there, though, we noticed a strange car parking us in, and once we were in bed, marijuana smoke came wafting in our windows. Because my wife has asthma, this was of some concern. The next day, I texted the host about the issue and received no response. Sure enough, that night we had the same weird experience, with someone smoking right outside our window. It was very creepy. When we went downstairs to see who was there, a couple was in a room right below our bedroom doing something on the bed that made us not want to knock on the door. So really, there were two issues: first, the safety issue of random people having their own party in the house while we were there, and, second the lack of response from the host. Besides that, the house was okay. It was not arranged quite like in the photos, but was overall acceptable, with a bit of clutter and wanting of a thorough cleaning. For the price, I’d be happy to stay in town at a hotel and be assured that my room would be clean and secure.

  • The stay at the cottage was most excellent! Just wish we could have had a few more days there - next time. The location is great for access to town, the setting is peaceful, great view, great ambiance. Also, fantastic instructions and recommendations on to-dos in the area. I would highly recommend this place! Thank you Risa!

  • Risa's cottage was wonderful. It is nicely decorated and well supplied. We had a great time despite a stretch of very rainy weather. We'll be back to enjoy the deck!

  • Risa's cottage was fantastic! A perfect getaway from the business of San Francisco. The cottage had everything you could need and more. The area immediately surrounding the cottage is quiet and peaceful and made for a relaxing weekend. Wine tasting, great food, massages, and anything else you could want are all just minutes away from the cottage. We will definitely be coming back to stay in Risa's cottage again.

  • What a great stay! We were coming from the East Coast and got delayed. Risa made it so easy for us to get in at 3 am! Her house is so welcoming and she really went the exta mile to make us feel welcome. The house is convienent to the town but just enough off the beaten path. We had a great family weekend together. We'll be back!

  • Cute cottage and a wonderful, flexible host. The place was very cozy and made us feel at home. It is spacious enough to entertain two couples and the patio is big enough and secure to let your dog run during the day. Also, good location since it's very close to most wineries in Healdsburg. Highly recommend Risa's place.

  • Wonderful cottage! Serene and quiet, eclectically decorated and fantastic homely feel. Risa was an excellent host

We take pride in creating an environment that is artistic and very comfortable. We come from backgrounds in the arts and technology. Things that we like are privacy, hearing the sounds of critters that live in our habitat, seeing them in action, and hanging out with human and canine friends. We get pleasure out of knowing that our guests will relax, recuperate from whatever, and be rejuvenated by the charm and quietness of the Cottage. Current interests include asian design, gardening, hiking, and of course, great food and wine.
