Overview

About the property

Great room, expansive decks, 3 bedroom, 2 full baths, outdoor shower, sleeps 6.

This unique wine country two-acre property, with heated swimming pool, looks out on the beautiful Russian River Valley vineyards and the never-ending Western panorama. Only minutes from award winning food and shopping in downtown Healdsburg, its within easy walking or bicycling distance of tasting rooms at J, Rodney Strong and other acclaimed Sonoma wineries.

This elegantly appointed, remodeled, 3-bedroom, 2-bath (+ heated outdoor shower), luxury cottage overlooks an exquisite new 40-foot, heated pool (see heating rates) . Gracefully spaced steps span the entire front of the pool so you can lounge in shallow water enjoying a drink, reading, or simply admiring the view. On the grounds, a wooden bridge takes you across a winter creek to native California foliage. Enhance your enjoyment by playing outdoor Foosball on the deck or classic French Pentaque on the court nestled between vineyard and pool. After exploring the wineries, wind down by the fireplace. A sophisticated retreat for families and friends.

Enter property through our Malbec vineyard : Young, exclusive vineyard of 156 vines frame the entrance to our special home. Pear, apricot, fig, pomegranate, and walnut trees grace the two acre expanse. Indigenous, native oak trees circle the property, with six heads of free range calves across the creek on neighbor's land.

Well Water: The cottage's water supply is filtered well water (as most of the house are in Healdsburg). At times there might be a slight odor. It is perfectly safe to for drinking, cooking, showering.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed last winter for one night with my friend. We went into town for dinner

(Healdsburg Hotel) and had a great fire in the fireplace that night when we got

back. The view of the pool and vineyard view is amazing. Everything is tasteful,

comfortable and clean. Great accommodations for two or a whole group.

A SLICE OF HEAVEN ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing setting! House is so warm and inviting. Perfect wine country experience, including roosters crowing, cows mooing and the evening tree frog symphonies, not to mention the view and sunsets! The pool was perfect and the outdoor shower was wonderful!!! Doesn't get better than this! Being here from Georgia in August was great--weather was so refreshing, cool, crisp mornings, daytime the pool was inviting, hot with no humidity, and evenings, after cocktails and dinner on the deck we even had a fire in the fireplace. We love Healdsburg and had lunch in town, but stayed home at night to enjoy our view. Nilus is a great host! I swiped some lavender from his garden to make a sachet. We will return for sure!

Perfect Birthday Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We came to Nilus' property for my Mother-in-law's 60th birthday - it did not disappoint. We had wonderful weather, the house and beds are comfortable and the small vineyard in front really seals the deal. Would absolutely stay again!

Peaceful Stay in Wine Country

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed our stay a lot. The house is in the country, outside of Healdsburg and we liked that. There are some good wineries close by, and it is interesting to stay somewhere that feels like home. We would definitely stay again.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

My three sisters and I spent a four day weekend at this cottage in Healdsburg, and enjoyed every minute. It was too cold to enjoy the pool, but we did enjoy the wood fireplace with gas ignition, in the living room. We were easily able to get Lyft to take us on the short drive into town when we didn't feel like driving. The bedrooms and bathrooms are comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked. Two thumbs up.
