“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed 8 October 2011

My girlfriend and I stayed September 13th through 15th. We'd originally planned to stay only two nights... the decision to spend another night at Zinscape was the best decision we made our entire vacation.
The cottage was very clean. Kitchen was amply stocked with cookware and staples so that you can eat in if you'd like. There's also a general store a 5 minute drive down the road with amazing sandwiches and provisions. Bathroom seemed recently renovated - double sinks, oversized tub, even a wide array of toiletries in case you forget something!
As others have stated, the accomodations are very quiet despite being next to the house. We had the pleasure of meeting and talking with Bruce, who had wonderful suggestions for local wineries - including unique opportunities for barrel tastings, cellar/cave tasting rooms, etc. - and restaurants, all of which excellent! He even helped us plan a scenic trip on our way out of town back towards SF. That said, we were never bothered and had all the privacy we could have asked for.
When we come back to wine country, this is where we will stay.

We were happy to return to Zinscape for another stay. We were here 5 years ago, loved it then and loved it again.

Bruce, Isabelle and their kids do a great job with lots of little touches that make the suites the perfect Sonoma accommodations. They are available if you need them but also have the suites set up so you can be totally independent and private.

The property is a bit of a drive out of Healdsburg but there are many wineries right by Zinscape.

I highly recommend staying at Zinscape.

There is so much to love about this cottage. It is a wonderful cottage with a comfortable bed, a large bathroom with a 2 person tub, a small but very well equipped kitchenette. It is very quiet even though it is next to the owners house. The continental breakfast included cereal/milk , eggs and some incredible croissants. The owner, Bruce, was very friendly and gave us suggestions for wineries to visit, events in Dry Creek valley and recommended several restaurants. Bruce recommended Diavola restaurant in Geyserville, it was so good that we went there 2 nights in a row! The cottage was very well equipped , the owners have thought of everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. On the downside, I was very disappointed that when you entered the cottage, it had a very strong wet dog smell and the tile floors were not clean. There is a small sitting area outside with wonderful vineyard views. Unfortunately we had to clean off the chairs and table before using them. With a thorough cleaning, this cottage would rate 5 stars as it is a gem in the heart of the wine country.

I love this cottage! My husband and I were stayed here between Christmas and New Year's. Sadly, we only got to stay one night but can't wait to go back.

Even though it rained the entire time of our visit, it was lovlier than any of the pictures online. The vinyard right outside the door was stunning, and the cottage was lovely. Bathtub big enough for two people, fluffy, comfy bed, and we loved having the fully equipped kitchen, too.

It's also probably the best value in the entire Sonoma/Napa area! You won't find a hotel room this charming and well equipped for twice the price.

Did I mention we can't wait to go back? Only next time, we're going to make sure to stay for at least a week or so.

I stayed at Zinscape from September thru most of October for business. As a professional in the wine industry I will say that this place is top notch in the area for accommodations. It's totally different than a hotel experience, its secluded, quiet, peaceful, only about 10 minutes from downtown Healdsburg (driving). For the price, there is no reason to ever stay at a hotel if you are coming to the Healdsburg area. You are surrounded by wineries and vineyards, even walking distance to some.

I also cannot say enough about the owners Bruce and Isabelle, they take care of you the moment you walk in. They both have a wealth of knowledge about wine in general and also wineries in the area. I have recommended Zinscape to all of my friends and family! I'll be back! Thank you Bruce and Isabelle for a memorable stay!

We stayed here for the weekend of the Vineman triathlon and absolutely loved it! The peaceful, somewhat remote location was ideal for me, my wife, and our 2 year old daughter. The landscaping of the property is stunning, and having the vineyard view literally 5 yards outside your bedroom window was something we'll never forget. Bruce put out a wonderful continental breakfast (the croissants are delicious), and the cleanliness, amenities, and decor were all first class--can't believe what a great value Zinscape is, or that it's not booked every weekend all year--we actually booked our stay with only 3 days advanced notice. Thanks again, Bruce!

We stayed for 3 nights as part of our California tour . We found Zinscape to be very relaxing and it was lovely to have a chance to self cater for once in our trip . The room with its kitchenette was well equipped and the bed and bathroom were very comfortable . Bruce was a helpful host and we had everything we needed . It is in a countryside location so eating out involved a drive unless you decide to self cater . Healdsburg has several good ( though expensive ) restaurants and we enjoyed Zin. Also had take away pizzas from Daviola in Geyserville and excellent food to cook in from Big John's supermarket . We loved Sonoma and the Dry Creek area and would recommend .
