About the property

Cottage Just Outside Town , One Bedroom , One Bath In Dry Creek; Ultra Comfort.

Enjoy a Private, Quiet, Rural Retreat in Wine Country among the Vineyards.

Walk or ride on country lanes to 5 star restaurants, wineries and Healdsburg Plaza. Or, opt to dine-in with a well-accessorized gourmet kitchen and high-end grill. The granite topped kitchen counter provides a welcoming space; be it for breakfast or for cocktails. The covered wrap-around porch provides a comfortable extension of living space with dining furniture as well as a plush day bed in warm country finishes in contrast to the urbane and sophisticated interiors.

Completely remodeled, this upscale, modern cottage among the Zinfandel vines and fruit trees is a great escape from the day-to-day. The cozy living room is customized with contemporary furniture, art & comfortable accessories. It is Cable and WiFi enabled with multiple indoor outdoor speakers and home theater (no amplified sound outdoors after 10 pm). For cooler nights when the ocean air rolls in, there is a gas fireplace. For those hot summer days, AC is also available with a ceiling fan over the Queen bed. Outdoor seating in comfort while having your first coffee to your evening cocktail or wine.

If you're adventurous, explore the Dry Creek, dedicated California Salmon run, that runs through the back of the property - lined by California Live Oaks, Bay Laurel trees and willows; 700 ft. from the Russian river. 167 Wineries outside the door, ramble through the Russian River Rose Gardens or horseback ride from the local stables. A biking enthusiasts dream! Come home to wine and Fire Pit under the stars. Beautiful western sunsets and view of Fitch Mountain.

About Diane Woodward

Living in Seattle we missed the warm fragrant breezes of growing up in California. The cooing morning doves and red tailed hawks. The smell of golden oats and citrus blossoms. Eucalyptus wafting on warm days. We are star watchers and the evening sky is majestic and yet only 70 miles north of SF! Flying into Santa Rosa, STS, is a dream and having world class wineries, chefs and restaurants unbelievable in such a small historic area right in Healdsburg. We ride bikes, swim in the river and hike, Lake Sonoma a short drive. Bodega Bay on the coast (30 miles); Redwoods of Mendocino: So THERE!!!

Diane Woodward purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Diane Woodward chose Healdsburg

Learning about the vines and the culture surrounding them is magical. Morning mists from the California Coast and warming sun that makes for incredible sunsets. Being in the midst of fruit orchards and vineyards in all seasons cannot be more life affirming.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the great pleasures of this cottage is the amazing Orange tree that provides the best orange juice daily. Pears, plums, apples , apricots, citrus, pomegranates and other fruit trees right outside your doors. Lots of roses and Zinfandel Vines, Shaded by large Elm behind house: swinging screen door, oh so country! great place to practice Yoga.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great spot! It is a quick drive from downtown Healdsburg. You could probably walk, but there are no sidewalks and it is not well lit so probably only during the day.

The cottage is very nice - the kitchen has new appliances, each room was clean and nicely decorated, and the porch is amazing.

The only let down is that the WiFi is slow, and the cell reception is spotty. But who needs it if the point is to get away!

The screened in porch wraps around two sides of the cottage. Very comfortable rocking chairs with cushions, make the porch a scenic living room. The fireplace inside makes a cool night very comfortable. Staying in a cottage is much more relaxing than a hotel room.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Uncork & Unwind was just as the pictures represented. We really enjoyed our stay. The only disappointments were being told just before we arrived that construction had just started behind the property and the road construction (not the owner's fault) between the cottage and town. The construction started each morning about 8:45, so breakfast on the screened in porch facing the construction workers was not what we had hoped. The kitchen was great, we enjoyed making breakfast before going out for the day. The cottage is in a great central location with wineries all around it in Healdsburg. If we were to return to the area we would certainly consider staying there again.

Property is very charming, renovated and offers plenty of comfort with large sreened porch

  • 4 of 5

Gorgeous flowers and plantings and excellent location to the town center. Construction going on behind the house and towels were a little old and worn. Big boxes in laundry room. I received a phone call two days after we left from the owner concerned we used all the towels, there four for a two night stay. Also questioned why we used all the bedding options(bed, pull out & outdoor daybed) original reservation was for 2 ppl and another girlfriend was added at last minute) us 60 yr olds were not partying it up but was taken aback by the call. Put a dampner on a nice visit. Home is charming though.
