About the property

Townhome, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Dear Guests,

The devastating firestorms in Sonoma, Napa & Mendocino counties give us heavy hearts. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those touched by this natural disaster.

While it may be a long road to recovery, our communities are strong and we will all pull together to help one another during this tragic event.

Cloverdale and The Loft has so far been unaffected by the fires. Although many friends and family have been deeply effected.

I hope you will understand, it was certainly with a great deal of sadness that I canceled your reservation. I did not take it lightly. I appreciate your patience and understanding.

The Loft has been rented for at least the next year, probably longer, to a couple that lost everything they owned in the fire off Mark West Springs road in Santa Rosa. It is our hope that this allows them time to try to mend their

lives and rebuild their home.

I will continue to update and keep the calendar current.

It will be an exciting day, when our visitors can return to The Loft. And our families can return to the sanctuary they call home.

Thank you all,

Claudia Clow

The Loft is located in Downtown Cloverdale, 15 minutes north of Healdsburg on beautiful Highway 101.

Just a 7 minute drive via Dutcher Creek Road to Dry Creek Valley, with all the world class wineries in close proximity. Alexander Valley is 12 minutes drive away.

Mendocino County, Anderson Valley (30 minutes), the village of Mendocino(2 hrs) are a day trip away.

Amazing bicycling trails from your door step.

Thank you so much to all my wonderful guests that have commented

on the Loft. They are the BEST! I thought I'd let them tell

you what it's like...

Claudia we are so grateful to stay in your lovely Loft. It is close to our wedding venue. We had others from our group stop in and see us and they were quite jealous of The Loft and the great location (as they had to drive up a mountain to get to their B&B). We would pop over and have icecream at Pick's and each morning we would head over to Cloverdale River Trail and take a nice walk. Thank you and we plan to come back soon.

This house was a beautiful compliment to a wonderful city and valley

---we loved it...your loft was infinitely cozier than a hotel..we love the area and look forward to another weekend getaway up here.

Thank you! Matt Bridget and baby Amilia, Marin.

Chris & Gorden from Clagary, Canada---We were very comfortable here in your quiet & cozy Loft. In the last 3 days we biked 75 miles in this beautiful valley, and it was a treat to come back to this

comfortable house.

It feels like home away from home after a weeks stay...

Richard, Pam & Tristan, Kirtland Hills Ohio

Wish we could stay longer...The Loft was awesome, we told everyone we met wine tasting in Healdsburg about the great place we were staying in Cloverdale! Your thoughtful touch that went into creating this space from the soft towels to the well stocked kitchen. We appreciated everything! Ayumi & Mark, San Francisco

Spacious, 1000 sf, loft in convenient downtown location.

Walk to dine, shop, wine taste, antique and much more. The newly completed 2-mile 'River Park Walk' is just blocks away.

This wonderful lofty space includes all of the best amenities for your Wine Country Vacation. Beautifully furnished with classic and comfortable furnishings. Premium linens, bedding, towels and kitchen supplies. A great alternative to a hotel stay, you can purchase great local products and prepare award winning feasts.

In just a short drive, you can enjoy all of the wonderful shopping, restaurants, and wine tasting rooms that the World Class Healdsburg Plaza has to offer.

The Loft is close to wonderful attractions such as Safari West Zoo, Real Goods Solar Living Center, Charles Shultz (Snoopy) Museum, Armstrong Woods, Hendy Woods State Park, or visit the sonomadotcom for great visitor information on other locations.

Lake Sonoma, less than 10 minutes, provides wildlife viewing, boating excursions and amazing site-seeing.

Want to explore Mendocino County, Anderson Valley and the Village of Mendocino, they are just a scenic day trip away.

Guest Lauren said in her email, 'you would have liked to hear us when we arrived Friday night, so wowed by the beautiful decor..'oh, look at this!' and oh, this is really cool!' I hope your dog lives a good long life, but it will be a treat when you can enjoy the nice serene setting you've created!' (my 12 year old Reggie can't

go up the stairs) Thank you Lauren for your kind comments.

About The Owner

I am now retired after owing and operating

a historical Drive-In Restaurant in Cloverdale since 1990. I have three grown children and 8 grandchildren. It has been my pleasure to operate this Vacation Rental and a delight to meet my guests from various

parts of the United States, Canada and the UK.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2007

Why The Owner chose Cloverdale

I purchased the downtown Cloverdale property in 1990, there was a residence there. I rebuilt it in 2007-2008 as a residence for me.

At the time I had a 12 year old Austrialian Shepherd with a bad knee. I knew he would never be able to make it up the stairs so my

daughter, Stephanie who has a successful vacation rental, suggested I turn it into a Vacation Rental.

What makes this townhome unique

Its location is right down town, within walking distance of many restaurants and shopping, etc. It is located at the hub of The Dry Creek Valley,

Alexander Valley and Anderson Valley is just 30 minutes away, all world class wine making venues. It is also perfect for exploring in either

Direction day trips to the village of Mendocino/Fort Bragg or Bodega Bay. The location is also surrounded by fantastic bicycle exploration in

Various directions.

Lovely spot

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at The Loft was wonderful. The purpose for the trip was to explore Sonoma and Mendocino Counties for a possible retirement property. We drove a lot, and walked a lot. The Loft was the perfect sanctuary to return to after some pretty tiring days. The rooms are spacious, and comfortably and attractively furnished. We chose to eat in most evenings, and the kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed to prepare a complete meal. We loved that the unit was flooded with sunlight in the mornings, and enjoyed our morning coffee on the balcony. We will stay there again if we ever return to the region.

Owner's Response: Thank you so very much for taking the time to write this lovely review. It makes me so happy to hear that you were very comfortable and enjoyed so many things about The Loft. It is a perfect hub location for exploring in all directions. Many couples have used it as their home away from home as they explore the area, as you did, for a retirement home, second home, or to relocate. Hopefully I see you again whether it is as a new resident to the area, or a returning guest, you are always welcome. Be sure to say hi. Thank you again.

Great location in a great little town

  • 5 of 5

We found "The Loft" when looking for a place to stay while in the area for a wedding in Hopland. Not only was Claudia's place perfect, it was just off the main streets of Cloverdale, a very nice little town filled with very nice people. And as a bonus, Cloverdale's annual classic car show was that weekend which is quite an event!

Hard to beat perfection! :-)

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had the most perfect stay at Claudia's rental. As vacation rental owners ourselves, it's nice to see the detail that has been taken in providing a flawless stay. Simple but so well done. Clean, private, convenient, well-stocked, perfectly situated are just the immediate thoughts that come to mind. On top of that, we had our favorite meal in recent memory at The Trading Post...literally across the street (Claudia's suggestion). Thank you for setting a high bar!

Repeat guest at this lovely Loft

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at The Loft several times, and will keep coming back! It is ideally located in the Northern Sonoma County wine country: Dry Creek Valley, and is the perfect home base for winery tours. We love the small town of Cloverdale, and once done with the events of the day, never get back in the car. There are several restaurants to choose from. A grocery store is nearby, to get anything needed to enjoy a barbecue on the deck. The Loft is impeccably clean, with absolutely everything provided to make your stay complete. Claudia, the owner, has made this a perfect home away from home.

Owner's Response: Kim, it was so great to have you both back again! Reviews play a large part in choosing a vacation rental, so I am very grateful that you took the time to write a review. Hopefully you discovered our new community Market Dahlia and Sage. It is a block and a half from The Loft and carries a beautiful selection of items. We are so thankful they are here. See you next year :)
