We stayed for 4 nights in April with our adult son and his wife, in the Farmhouse. The setting was private and bucolic -- surrounded by vineyards, no other buildings visible from most windows. There is a large bush inhabited by multiple hummingbirds, located right outside the livingroom window. The kitchen is very well equipped; the beds are comfortable and the bathrooms clean and spacious; the free wi-fi provided internet access at speeds acceptable even to our techie kids. The hot tub and grill are terrific additions. The heat and gas fireplace were welcome on cool April evenings; the house did not appear to have A/C, but did have a large attic exhaust fan. The owners were out of sight, but very helpful when needed; they even let us bring our kids' pet cockatiel, who complemented the birds in the garden aviaries.
The town of Healdsburg is small and charming, with galleries, wineries, and outstanding restaurants. Costeau's Bakery had great takeout and eat-in breakfasts. Big John's Market on the north side of town had terrific meats and produce.
