I have just completed a three week sabbatical at this beautiful and quiet rental. It is the perfect location for staying in, reading, contemplating, writing, and central enough for those days you are ready to venture out for wine tasting and sight seeing. There are great markets, like Oliver's and Whole Foods, within a 10 minute drive; beautiful drives to Calistoga, Napa, or the coast; and great boutique shopping within a 10 minute drive where you could even take a cooking class at Sur La Table. The owners are kind and engaging while giving you complete privacy, and you can't help but fall in love with Sammy, their loving golden lab. Thank you Kathy & Dave for providing me a PERFECT place to rest and listen in silence. I'm sure I will be back (with doggy biscuits ready)!
