What a great stay we had at Steve's! This far exceeded my expectations, especially for the nightly rate. It was more private than staying at a BnB because we had the whole floor to ourselves and our own entrance.
Steve and his wife have a lovely home and the rooms are perfectly elegant. I especially loved their path that led to the private entrance - it was bordered by gorgeous hydrangeas (I think they were). At night, with the lights on, it felt perfectly magical.
The location is great for Dry Creek wineries (5 minutes away) and going to the Healdsburg plaza for shopping/dining (just a few minutes). We had great meals at Dry Creek Kitchen and Zin.
It was a pleasure to stay at Stephen's place for 3 nights. Everything was super clean and ready by the time I arrived. It was late and Stephen met me in front of the house. He showed me around and provided thorough printed instructions which included the WiFi password for my laptop. The room is nicely appointed with a very comfortable queen size bed, cable TV and a large closet. The bathroom had plenty of fresh towels and was located across the hall, you pretty much have the whole first floor to yourself. There is also a laundry room (with washer/drier/detergent) which also doubles as a kitchenette (microwave, coffee maker, dishes, glasses, and a sink). The entrance is very private going through the beautiful garden and the deck with a spacious hammock. I also had a little bit of a car trouble and Stephen helped me take care of it. My expectations were greatly exceeded and I cannot recommend this house enough!!! What a great find in a very nice area!!!
The host canceled my reservation.
We really enjoyed staying with Stephen and his wife in the nice room in their wonderful home. They were super an nice and helpful hosts, great location for exploring Healdsburg and nearby Sonoma area!
We stayed here for weekend while attending the various events of a friend's wedding in Healdsburg. The room and the property are beautiful (nice porch with great hammock!) and the Duggans were so welcoming and friendly. We were so glad we stayed here instead of at a hotel! Absolutely no complaints. We had a great time.
This place was amazing! I came to the area for an Ironman triathlon, and it was really the perfect place to stay. So comfortable and relaxing. The home was beautiful, from the incredible garden on the way in, to the gorgeous back yard and deck, and plush queen size bed. I booked very last minute, and Stephen was still so accommodating. The place was clean and ready, and he was very gracious upon my arrival. The only bummer about my trip was that it was busy and I wished I could have spent more time relaxing at the house! I will just have to book another stay soon! :)
Incredibly gracious hosts!
My girlfriend and I booked a last minute trip (minus kids) to the Healdsburg area and the place was not only perfectly situated from the downtown area, but Stephen and his wife were also incredibly informative and gracious by providing local tips and working with our schedule.
Only drawback, got warm mid night, but there was a hammock outside on the back porch. Best idea for a cool off and true sleeping under the stars! A great getway all the way around.
We loved our stay with Steve and Diana. The house is beautiful, the room was perfect. Incredible garden entrance, great views from the deck while relaxing on the hammock. Quiet, very comfortable bed, and gracious hosts. Wish we were still there!
Great location, quiet, clean, and comfortable. Loved the double hammock on the lower deck.
great room/bathroom/back yard.
It was a pleasure to have Stephen stay at my home. He was there for one night as he had work in Santa Cruz in the morning. He was quiet and he left everything neat and organized. I hope he can come back with his wife next time.
