Treat yourself to a wine country adventure full of outdoor recreation, farm-to-table cuisine, and serene relaxation at this two-bedroom Healdsburg home, where you'll enjoy a private deck with a six-person hot tub, two outdoor patios, a gourmet kitchen, and a wonderful location close to downtown.
This dog-friendly home is surrounded by redwoods, oaks, and various conifers, creating a peaceful escape for two couples or a group of friends. Yet it's also just two miles north of Healdsburg Plaza, allowing guests easy access to restaurants, wine tours, cycling opportunities, and more than 100 wineries and tasting rooms in the immediate region.
In an upscale town known for its rustic country roots, this single-level home similarly offers both elegance and comfort in its 1,145 square feet.
With an open floor plan, hardwood floors, and plush furnishings, the living room is ideal for entertaining and catching up with old friends. You'll have central air conditioning for the warmest of summer days, although you can just as easily open the windows to let in the cool, fragrant evening breezes.
Pick up some artisan bread at Costeaux French Bakery and a few specialty ingredients at SHED, and use them to prepare homemade meals in the gourmet kitchen. You'll find granite countertops, a Viking gas stove and convection oven, and other stainless steel appliances to make you feel like a professional chef.
Use the waffle iron to create delectable breakfasts and leave the dishwasher in charge of the clean-up. You'll have plenty of time to read the paper at the bar counter for three, or join your friends around the dining room table for six.
In such a warm and sunny region, you'll have abundant opportunities to enjoy this home's lovely outdoor spaces. Sip your morning coffee on the side patio or head out front to fire up the gas grill, share a meal at the outdoor dining table, or spend the afternoon sunbathing on one of the two Adirondack chairs.
On a hill behind the house, guests can climb the stairs to find a wonderfully private redwood deck with a patio table, bench seating, and a six-person hot tub nestled among the trees.
And despite the fact that the road out front can be well-trafficked at times, this large and private lot is completely enclosed, allowing your dogs (two maximum) plenty of space to run around (please note that an additional nightly fee applies).
Planning a quiet evening at home after a fun-filled day of cycling and wine tasting? Retreat to the media room to play a game of Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit, use the WiFi to make dinner reservations, or simply settle in for a DVD favorite on the 46-inch flatscreen cable TV.
With two bedrooms, one full bathroom, and one half-bath, The Getaway on Dry Creek will accommodate as many as six guests. You'll find spacious walk-in closets in both bedrooms, which feature a king and a queen bed, respectively. There's also a queen-size sofabed in the media room.
You'll also find a jet tub and a shower in the full bathroom, as well as a private washer/dryer and a half-bath in the utility room.
As an epicenter of Northern California winemaking, cuisine, and outdoor recreation, Healdsburg is a perfect escape for wine lovers, cyclists, and vacationers of all interests. Consider booking an excursion with Healdsburg Wine Tours, which will help you make the most of this region where the Alexander, Dry Creek, and Russian River Valleys meet.
