Description from owner

This gorgeous secluded property offers great views, spacious living areas and solar heated pool. It is a perfect getaway for families or friends traveling together. And would be an excellent choice for corporate retreats and small weddings.

The property is located in the Valley of the Moon on 3.5 professionally landscaped acres within minutes to dozens of world class vineyards and 5 minutes to the historic Sonoma Plaza.The Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco are 45 miles south (a 50-60 minute drive).

The property has a solar heated swimming-pool (with removable child-proof fence), two ponds, putting green, a private gate, a circular drive-way with a central fountain, and a two car garage.

There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in the one level 3000 sqf country house, with vine covered eaves facing the sunset over Sonoma Mountain and the private pool.

All of the rooms in the home have sliding glass doors that invite you out to the private pool, and pond area, and all of the rooms have hardwood oak floors. The living room features a grand piano, a large cable TV, a queen sofa bed, and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace that opens to the dining room as well.

All the beds have down filled duvets and fine linens.

The kitchen is designed with cherry wood cabinets, Italian granite counters, a Wolf six-burner professional cook top with infra-red hood heaters, stainless steel appliances, including silent Bosch dishwasher.

Professional landscaping with a large variety of roses (seasonal), an abundance of oak trees, over twenty different young fruit trees (seasonal), a vegetable garden (seasonal), and a herb garden.

Six-hole golf putting green (clubs supplied) for the enthusiasts with a viewing bench for supporters (or those who rather sip wine). Views of both Moon Mountain (east) and Sonoma Mountain (west).

Central Air Conditioning/heating throughout.

Crib in the second bedroom can be removed. At least one week notice to remove and store.

Stay 4 nights and get the fifth night FREE.

Beds: 3 Queen Beds, 1 Sofa Bed, 1 Crib

About the area

Fantastic out-door living, with a privat swimming pool, ponds, putting green, gardens, lawns, large patios, BBQ, and three out-door dining areas scattered around the property, including two at the pool-side and one under the cool eave. The gated property (Private gate) has circular drive way with central pond and fountain. The remaining two acres of the property have a park-like setting, studed with native wine country and fruit trees. There is also a herb and vegetable (seasonal) garden. The property is located in the valley of the Moon where tens of world class wineries are located, among them are Chateau St. Jean, Benziger and Kenwood. The historic Plaza in downtown Sonoma is just 5 minutes drive. The Golden Gate bridge and San Francisco are 45 miles south (a 50-60 minute drive).

“Superb experience!”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2014

Grandparents, parents and grandchild age 7.5 all greatly enjoyed a week's stay at this well-maintained, spacious property. It was, truly, a home-away-from-home. The pool, heated to 85-90 degrees, was particularly enjoyable. The putting green was fun even though no one knew any golf.

Owner's reply: Thank you for the feed back Dr. Fessel. We are truly happy that you enjoyed your stay. Your comments are very much appreciated. Elizabeth and Al

“Above & Beyond!”

Truly an amazing home to rent for a few days. Unless we were sleeping, we spent all our time outdoors on this beautiful, tranquil, and enjoyable property.

“Christmas Memories”

Reviewed 30 Dec 2010

Our immediate family gathered for Christmas 12/23 - 12/28/2010 . We had a wonderful time in Sonoma & would love to visit again. Weather was cool & rainy for most part so did not get to enjoy much outside. House was lovely & comfortable. We did miss having a TV in great room & a hot tub would have been big bonus with the weather conditions. The fireplace was great. Location convenient & town had all we needed. For local flavor we loved the Jack London Bar 4 miles down the road. Wineries we visited were fun & memorable.

“A comfortable retreat”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2010

This is a very well-equipped and maintained home, private and spacious inside and out. All rooms open to outside activities in the back of the house, all overlooking a large patio, a lovely flower garden that contains a gurgling water pond. Further down is a well-kept pool with comfortable furniture. A putting green next to it provides a diversion and a great outdoor activity for the entire family. Glen Ellen is a short, lovely drive to the North while Sonoma is a few minutes by car he other way. We found it ideal for a family get-together of three generations. A week was not enough.

“A home away from home!”

Reviewed 24 May 2010

What a joy to arrive at a house that was so welcoming and cozy. Stocked with condiments, spices and everything we needed to have a wonderful home cooked meal - made things super easy..and enjoyed the board games, dvd's and music selection as well. Most confortable bed ever - and was probably one of the best nights of sleep I have had in a long time.... Nothing was lacking - simply a perfect house that provided a wonderful home away from home during our girls wine weekend getaway....would recommend it to anyone and can't wait to go back for another visit!
