Wonderful week in the "Zen" Barn in the heart of the Sonoma Wine Country

Wonderful week in the "Zen" Barn in the heart of the Sonoma Wine Country

We really enjoyed our stay in the barn. It was exactly what we wanted
and it was an excellent location for exploring the wine country. As a base for touring it was
ideal as it it is about half way between Healdsburg and Sonoma with an amazing
selection of wineries within very easy reach (there were a few very close and within
walking distance if you don't want to drink and drive) The barn is set back from the road.
It is very peaceful yet not too far from Santa Rosa or Sebastopol for restaurants and shopping.
The accommodation was excellent and beautifully furnished. We felt totally at home for the week.
The highlight every day was sitting out on the patio in the evening with a glass
of wine looking out on the vineyard, listening to the bees in the lavender and watching
the humming birds coming and going. We also loved watching the quail family that
seem to have their home at the end of the garden.

The bathroom facilities were excellent with a fantastic wet area for showering.
The kitchen was very well equipped and well laid out. The only things missing
were a washing machine and clothes drier. (We were touring for a month and
we missed having laundry facilities).

The barn gave us a wonderful experience of open plan living and while the
property is described as a studio it does not feel like one and it is very spacious and airy.

We would highly recommend the barn to anyone looking to spend some time in the Sonoma
area. A fantastic property and wonderful place to visit.

Perfect Landing Pad

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
My boyfriend & I stayed at the Zen Barn in late October 2012. To say it was perfect is an understatement. The location is incredible - great wineries located just minutes away, within driving distance to Napa, Sonoma & St. Helena. The town isn't too far away so getting groceries wasn't a problem at all. The barn itself was such a perfect place to land after touring all day. We had breakfast, left for the day and would come back, cook dinner and watch the sunset on the patio with our latest wine find. The kitchen was great, the bathroom was huge (compared to ours in Chicago!) and the bed was insanely comfortable. It was exactly what we needed for the five days we were there.

The local area is so much fun as well. I highly recommend checking out Ironhorse (about 3-4 miles away). We did spend a good bit of time in the Dry Creek Valley (check out Bella - so good!). We rented bikes and had lunch at Coppola (their pizza is fantastic). I also surprised my boyfriend with a hot air balloon ride over in Napa. You have to get up insanely early, but it was worth every minute of sleep lost and penny spent. We went through Napa Valley Balloons and would recommend them time and time again. Also, if you have time, check out Kuleto winery. Totally off the beaten path and the most expensive tasting we did, but again, worth. every. penny. (including the two bottles of wine we walked away with).

At any rate, I've already told all of my friends to take a Wine Country Vacation & recommended they stay at the Zen Barn. It was the best vacation we have been on!
Owner's Response: Wow Lindsey, that is a 5 star review! We are so glad you enjoyed our Zen Barn and are still thinking about it! We truly hope that means you will be coming out to stay with us again soon. This year the gardens should be in full swing with all that we planted last year and it should be better than ever.
And thanks for telling your friends!

This place is exactly as they describe. The only thing that would have made it better is if there was a hot tub outside next to the sliding glass door! We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend it and Sonoma Valley in general to those who want a relaxed and scenic wine experience!
