River tubes and pump are in the garage with 3 public beaches along the Russian River less than 10 minutes’ drive from the house (Del Rio Beach, Veterans Beach, and Badger Park).

Style Notes

Rustic, modern, vintage, eclectic. One of the first homes built in the neighborhood in the 50s, and lovingly handed down from family to family since then, this home offers a boutique retreat space with comfortable, clean accommodation and upscale amenities. The heart of the house is the recently renovated open-concept kitchen with a classic farm sink, quartz countertops, and subway tile backsplash. Vintage furniture and decor have been hand-picked and collected from antique shops and flea markets around Northern California. We love the indoor / outdoor living that make the most of California’s super summers, the lovely location next to the park and the gorgeous interior.

Healdsburg, Sonoma

Wine, Peanuts and picnic groves

Picture-perfect Healdsburg is one of the most beautiful small towns in northern California and the ideal place to base yourself for vineyard tours and Russian River exploration. Stroll around its 19th century plaza, sip wine in tasting rooms and enjoy the great outdoors. Family-focused wineries nearby entertain all ages with picnic areas, swimming pools and bocce ball courts. Beyond the wine, there is a Charles Schultz Museum in nearby Santa Rosa for big Peanuts fans, Safari West, and San Francisco is an easy hour's drive away.
