Thinking of taking a vacation rental in wine country? Is a romantic weekend getaway on your agenda? A wine and culinary epicenter, Healdsburg, in Sonoma County, sits at the apex of the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and Alexander Valley, and the Healdsburg Wine & Food Experience takes place May 18-21. The festival will showcase the region’s makers – farmers, growers, winemakers and chefs – alongside globally recognized wines from the greatest wine regions of the world.


Downtown Healdsburg Vacation Rental

On May 4, 2023, Stanley Saitowitz | Natoma Architects received the 2023 AIA SF Merit Award for 212 Tucker - three new residences two blocks from Healdsburg Plaza. Developed by my friend and former broker, John McInerney in 2021, and furnished by the talented BraytonHughes Design Studio who interviewed me to work on the Four Seasons in Sharm el-Sheikh after I first arrived in San Francisco from Cairo in 2002; it doesn't get any better.

Healdsburg’s characteristic residential architectural language of shady porches, light-painted clapboard siding and fertile landscapes are reinterpreted in a contemporary language. The front of the building is a latticework screened porch with a colonnaded portico. Linear planters define the edge of the property. Drought-resistant planting covers the ground between the planters and porch. 

212 and 214 Tucker are each fully furnished and available to rent for $35,000 per month for a minimum of 30 days (or less on an annual basis). The ADU is also available for rent for $3,000 per month unfurnished. Contact Jack for a private tour, booking, and additional information. 

Romantic Secluded Mansion Hotel

Nestled in the hills above the Dry Creek Valley, Madrona Manor is an exceptionally lovely Second Empire/Queen Anne Victorian-era estate surrounded by eight acres of wooded and landscaped grounds. The gated mansion, built in 1881, has been a destination for discerning guests seeking a stay in wine country since 1981. Its natural beauty, recently transformed interiors by the incomparable, Jay Jeffers, Michelin Guide farm-to-table restaurant, and art collection curated by Dolby Chadwick Gallery make your stay here extraordinary. 

Recognized in this year's Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot List and Travel + Leisure's prestigious 2023 Hot List.
