Amour Getaway is a peaceful, private home just minutes from the historic Sonoma Plaza. This serene, and delightfully comfortable house can accommodate up to six guests.
House layout inside and out.
Amour is decorated in warm and bright tones with original and tasteful artwork. As you drive to the end of our street, you'll pull into our driveway, in front of our sunny front garden. Then open the gate to our enclosed French-feeling, shady courtyard with a wooden two-person swing. Go up two steps to the front door landing and enter the house into the breakfast area and kitchen. Just off the living room is a private, new, and sunny back deck with table, views to the hills, and a shady garden with a swing on a tree.
The warm and bright kitchen has a built-in oak breakfast nook looking out to the garden, and a refurbished 1940's stove. The split-level living room has hardwood floors.
There is a romantic wood-burning fireplace and a double bed with a privacy screen on the lower level looking out on the deck. The upper level is a traditional family room/TV area.
In the master bedroom is a queen-size Select Comfort airbed. The second bedroom is like a separate cottage with a queen-size bed and a sweet roll-top oak desk. There are 1.5 baths: a half bath behind the kitchen, and full bathroom with tub/shower through the master bedroom. The utility room has a washer and dryer. In addition, we supply plush towels and robes, Egyptian high count cotton sheets, pillows and blankets, cookware, and dinnerware.
Go do it all or kick back and do nothing!
Amour Getaway, in the heart of Sonoma Valley is within minutes of wineries, fine food, art, music, theater, spas, shops, state parks, Jack London’s home, Infineon (Sears Point) Raceway, golf courses, horseback riding, balloon flights, biking and hiking, yet guests always comment that the Amour Getaway is so incredibly quiet and relaxing. Amour is located only 45 miles north of San Francisco, 45 minutes to the beach or the redwoods.
The quaint, rustic neighborhood of Boyes Hot Springs is perfect for a five-minute walk down to the Barking Dog Café at the end of Vallejo Street. If you favor a longer walk to the historic town square of Sonoma, use the walking/biking trail that starts on Hwy 12 across from the Breakaway Cafe. Sonoma, only five minutes by car, boasts fabulous and varied restaurants, a wonderful old movie theater, sidewalk cafes on the square, cheese makers, and interesting unique stores. There is always something interesting going on in town, such as art fairs, live bands, fiestas, film and music festivals, and outdoor theater. Glen Ellen, two miles north, is home to the famous Jack London State Park, and also has wonderful restaurants and shops.
My name is Judy Kranzler, and I am an educator and a businesswoman. I founded and ran an intensive French language summer camp in the high Sierras after teaching in France and studying mime with Marcel Marceau. I also founded a non-profit reading clinic here in Walnut Creek and I do teacher training nationwide using my unique, effective, physically-active, and musical reading program.
My husband and I chose Sonoma because we love the town, its vibrant community, and the surrounding countryside. We have gone up to Sonoma for our romantic weekend getaways from home for over three decades, and hope to eventually move there. Finding this amazing house right where we wanted to live, was a dream come true. It has all the character and charm I could ever want but is small and cozy as well.
My husband and I fell in love with the home and its location, view, and serenity. We felt immediately comfortable and relaxed there.
Wine Tasting, Multiple Spas, strolling around neighborhood and town square, napping!
