My four children are fully grown and live several hours away from each other on the east coast. We look forward to a yearly vacation. This year we picked Wineberry Lodge! My second son, a self-proclaimed wine aficionado, chose Sebastopol/Russian River and the Wineberry Lodge for its wineries.
Upon arriving at Wineberry Lodge, we entered into a small gated community where we met the owner Heidi(she is the sweetest and the most hospitable person!) She opened the door of the Wineberry Lodge to let us in. It was definitely a "WOW" factor when we walked in! My family quickly noticed the pictures online did no justice. From the custom woodwork to the extravagant outdoor kitchen/bar, we were highly impressed!
Wine and fresh fruit were also waiting for our arrival!
My biggest concern with rentals is (Cleanliness): The house was spotless!
The wood fired pizza oven, which was flown from Italy, probably stole the show. The pizza cooks in just a few minutes, and after some practice, makes for a fun and delicious day/night with your loved ones.
As the week progressed, we visited many wineries, including the ones within walking distance(Merry Edwards, Dutton Goldfield, etc.) Kayaking down the Russian River was also a great choice, just 10 minutes away! Another great stop is Bodega Bay for fresh seafood. One night, Heidi's husband Brent, thoughtfully called the house and dropped off Dungeoness crabs for dinner! How nice is that!
The Wineberry Lodge was a great choice for our family vacation. Enough can't be said about the generosity and attention to detail we experienced! Hopefully, your family will enjoy the same… Just not during the same week we plan to book this beautiful property again.
