PEPPERWOOD PLACE: SPACIOUS HOME WITH WOODED PRIVACY AND SWEEPING VALLEY VIEWS

Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms - 3 Full Bathrooms - (Sleeps 8) Sonoma County License #581N

Our spacious well-appointed 2700 sq. ft. 4 bedroom home will make your vacation dreams come true. It is located on 1.5 acres in a private community at the top of the hills west of Sonoma, and sits 1300 feet above the valley floor. It is surrounded by mature Oak and Bay trees giving you beautiful wooded views from every window. There are sweeping views of the hills and the south end of the Sonoma valley, the Carneros wine region and the north end of the San Francisco bay waters. Our hills are bustling with deer, wild turkeys, squirrels and many, many species of birds. Our guests say that our house feels like a '5 star' hotel: that’s exactly what we’d hoped. As you enter the front doors you are greeted with the warmth and welcoming feel of this home. There are neighbors but with the beautiful mature vegetation you can’t see other houses. You will feel like you’re in a world of your own. We are 5 miles from Sonoma’s central square where there are world class restaurants & shops.

More About Us: Our kitchen has always been a favorite gathering spot. Lots of counter space, a great expanse of windows, a fireplace and our “pub” table all provide the perfect atmosphere. Our spacious dining room lends itself to romantic dinners or upbeat gatherings.

The living room and sunroom overlook our large deck and the expansive views of the valley and distant mountain ranges. The morning sunrise is spectacular. If you prefer to sleep late, just grab a robe and enjoy the valley views with your first cup of coffee.

The Sonoma valley is known as the Valley of the Moon. There is nothing more breathtaking than the big orange moon rising over the hills in the evening and flooding our deck with its glow. You’ll have a bird’s eye view.

Our Bedrooms are Inviting: Each bedroom has a personality of it’s own. Every bed has a down feather comforter to give you warmth without the weight and down feather pillows that will perfectly adjust to your preferences. All bedrooms have additional seating that will give you comfortable places to get-away from the group if you need a quiet time to talk or read.

The wine country is a destination in itself: add to that this really terrific house and you have the perfect combination.

I'm a retired educator. I began my career as a public school elementary teacher, but soon discovered Montessori education and spent the majority of my working life in Montessori as a teacher, school owner, school administrator, college level instructor, and executive director of an international Montessori organization. Now, I'm happily retired.

Karen purchased this house in 1988

I lived in this wonderful home for over 20 years and everyday I felt like I was on vacation. When I moved to Pacific Grove in 2006 I decided to turn my Sonoma home into a vacation rental. You will see from the reviews written by our guests that this is a special place.

The house is nestled among beautiful old oak trees. The views are wonderful. The wildlife is every present. You can't help but relax when you're here.

Perfect in every way! The Pepperwood Place property exceeded our expectations. We were a group of 7, my husband and me, plus our 2 teenage sons, my in-laws and brother-in-law. The views are fabulous especially from the decks and hot tub. There are very nice house robes for all and outside spa robes for all guests. New washer and dryer was a plus! The owner is professional and is very detailed oriented.
I would stay here again. Book it!

From Looking for a place to celebrate our "75th" bdays to 5 "High School Friends" staying 1 week at this comfortable, clean and beautiful location the process was above average. The owner, Karen, was always available to answer questions, help with minor issues (it was cold our third evening and we couldn't find firewood. It arrived very quickly. We had fires every night thereafter and a few mornings. too). We had issues with the electronics (music, tv, etc.) All caused by 75 yr olds that have no clue about all the modern ways of doing things. Everything was fine once we walked it through.
Try sitting in the hot tub after a long day of touring with your wine bought at amazing wineries. You can see the lights of Sonoma and western San Fran. Enjoy the sunrise every morning with your coffee on the huge deck wrapped in a blanket and watching the deer in the yard.
Beds are comfy, linens top of the line, views from almost every room,
What are you waiting For??
We will talk about it for a long time. A perfect celebration.
Thanks, Karen for everything,

Are recent stay at Pepperwood was everything we expected. Clearly the house was being looked after and we'll maintained. The house was well appointed, kitchen was well stock and easy to prepare food. With four couples we were concerned about space, however this house with its wonderful deck provided plenty of space and privacy for all. The only disappointment was the hot tub was not working. Certainly we will return to this property.
Owner's Response: I felt really bad that we weren’t able to immediately resolve the problem with the hot tub. It turned out to be simply an issue with the filters but it took 2 days and 4 service calls to get it resolved. On the second day of the renters stay I received a call saying that the hot tub was warm but that they couldn’t get the jets to work and they couldn’t turn up the temperature. I immediately asked our maintenance person to go up to the house and check it out. There appeared to be an electrical problem, so I sent up an electrician. He determined that the problem was with something else. Next came the “hot tub experts” and it turned out to be simply an issue with the filters. We ordered new filters and had it up and running properly the next day, but it wasn’t in time for this group. The guests were completely understanding about the situation, which I really appreciated, and as you see they still gave us 5 stars and said they’d come back.

Great home in an ideal location with incredible views. It was a pefect home for 4 couples and has a large kitchen for socializing in as well as cooking. Karen, the owner, was very accessible and quick to respond to the only issue we had. The house is very clean and the owner obviously goes to great effort to make it an enjoyable place to vacation. Hope to return to Sonoma again some day and stay here again.

I cannot say enough about this beautiful property! Our group consisted of 4 couples and this house was had absolutely everything we could have ever hoped for. Like most other reviews...we would visit wineries during the day but were all anxious to return afterwards to this amazing place on the hill with amazing views, privacy and so so much space. I would recommend this VRBO to anyone and everyone! I would very much love to return someday! Thank you Karen so so so much.... from all of us! We had the best time!

Notes:
We are a Licensed Vacation Rental Home (Sonoma County #581N). Our 2700 sq. ft. house is located in the hills west of Sonoma and is in a neighborhood where all properties are one and one half acres or more. There's lots of room for gathering in the common living areas and the comfortable bedrooms have sitting areas that provide opportunities for private space. It's great getting up in the morning to the spectacular views and relaxing in the evening to the twinkling lights of the valley below.
