This is a charming little gem in the heart of wine country USA. Do yourself a favor and stay here!

We loved the charm, the location and everything Zinscape had to offer. Our guest cottage overlooked the vineyards of the Dry Creek Valley with sweeping views to the north. It was conveniently located five minutes from the town of Geyserville and about 10 minutes from the center of Healdsburg, nestled between vineyards to the north, south and east of the property.

The cottage was roomy, bright and airy, and nicely furnished in cheerful yellows and blues.

When entering the cottage, you arrive through a pergola with mature foliage, reminding us so much of Italy. The kitchen is amply supplied with stove, refrigerator, microwave and toaster oven. A table for two was set with cheerful white dishes, French blue linens and fresh croissants for the morning. Upon further investigation, we found milk, juice, butter and jam in the refrigerator to accompany the selection of cereals and the croissants arranged neatly on the table. A nice selection of teas and good coffee was also available.

In the main room, there was an overstuffed sofa, cable TV, Sirius radio and a king-sized bed, made with luxuriously soft linens. This was seriously comfortable.

The bathroom was bright and enormous for a guest cottage. Tiled with Travertine- style tile on the floor and double sinks, there was one step up into the bath area, with a huge over-sized soaking tub and removable handle shower. This also overlooked the vineyards although the windows were high enough to offer plenty of privacy. We found two thick and fluffy bathrobes and slippers, as well as plenty of bath and hair products for guests use.

The price per night was $150.00 for Thursday and $175.00 per night for Friday and Saturday.

We loved Zinscape and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. It was clean, charming and if you're there to enjoy wine country, you are in the heart of it here.

We stayed here for a wedding and upon talking to other guests attending the wedding, we were the envy of the everyone for the charm of it as well as the value. You will not be disappointed if you choose Zinscape for your wine country escape.
