There has never been a better time that to visit Sebastopol. Sebastopol has the exuberant charm of an old fashioned farming town. Thanks to Russian trappers, who first planted the Gravenstein apple in the 1800s, it became known as the Gravenstein capital of the world. But times change and beginning in the late 60s to the present time, apples continue to give way to grapes, particularly Burgundy varietals. Since the mid 1990s, Sebastopol has become a “new theater for wine grapes…first in blends, then in vineyard-designated wines.” (S.F Chronicle, 8.29.2008). Home ranches for some of the most notable wineries are located in and around Sebastopol.
The house is located at the gateway to the Russian River and Sonoma Coast wine regions of Sonoma County, CA. The picturesque town of Healdsburg is just 25 miles to the north with its world-class shopping, ambiance, and restaurants.
You enter the property from the road through a coded gate and proceed up a long driveway where the house is situated amid 100 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris vineyards. It is part of a working ranch so farming activity may be present from time to time. While close to vibrant towns and farmers markets, the property itself is quietly isolated from city lights and noise, where each visitor can relax and find their own spot in the peace and privacy of your own country home, and get used to the sounds of silence at night. The house is light and airy, with hardwood floors throughout, a modern kitchen & amenities, gourmet cookware, two full baths, and granite countertops in both the kitchen and bathrooms. It has a satellite, flat panel plasma Sony TV, and a Bose sound system. Outside there is a patio covered with a trellis of Wisteria, and a Dimension spa on the deck, a perfect spot to see the Big Dipper in the night sky.
Sebastopol and the surrounding area is rich in artisan farms including organic, biodynamic, and sustainably farmed products, which include livestock, poultry, row crops, tree fruits, cheeses, micro dairies, and artisanal breads and olive oils. In addition to the garden-fresh foods that abound in the area, dozens of award-winning wineries are nearby or an easy, bucolic, and uncongested drive through the Sonoma Coast and along the Russian River, through Dry Creek Valley, and the Alexander Valley just outside Healdsburg. Country markets in Sebastopol, Healdsburg, Occidental, and Santa Rosa introduce visitors to the variety of micro producers so prominent in the area.
The house provides solitude in an environment of innovative but accessible foods, world-class winemaking and viticulture, and an outdoor paradise of hiking, biking, or strolling.

As experienced California wine country travelers, this property was perfectly located to visit all three valleys (Napa, Sonoma, and Russian River). It allowed us to get anywhere we wanted within an hour or less, have access to great markets, cheeses, and of course wines. The property was perfectly appointed, clean and quiet. It allowed our group to be together or have enough space to relax on your own. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive, answering all our questions, provided us guidance and recommendations. We have stayed at many different home rental properties (globally) and this one definitely one of the best! We will want to return as soon as possible! Thanks for making our celebration week special!
My husband and I spent several days here with my sister and brother-in-law in mid August. Beautiful property inside and out. Quiet and peaceful. Daily road trips to all areas of Sonoma county easy and quick from this home. Great to wake up every morning to vineyards on all sides of you!
Our stay at this house was absolutely wonderful! We can't wait for the opportunity to visit CA and stay here again. The house was beautifully decorated and extremely clean. The kitchen was perfect and contained everything we needed to cook with. The large dining room table provided a great setting for most of our downtime. The evenings were so peaceful since you are literally surrounded by vineyards. Perfect for a great night sleep. The owner provided all the details needed for the home and for our travels prior to our trip. We would definately recommend this property to everyone.
This residence was just perfect -- it was beautiful and a good fit for our family of 5 adults.
It gave us a quiet place to relax and talk with several areas for each of us to enjoy on our own as well as together. We used the kitchen and outdoor grill for meals except when we ate at the Farmhouse Inn B & B --- a wonderful dinner! Shopping was easy -- ten minutes to town --- Safeway and Whole Foods are convenient and we enjoyed the Artisana gift shop as well as nearby restaurants/wine bar/coffee shops.
The location is very private, quiet, secure and well-furnished. It is iin the middle of a vineyard and the landscaping all around the home is just beautiful and well kept. Note: You may want to bring eyeshades if you like to sleep beyond sunrise! We enjoyed perfect weather every day --- a great time to be in Sebastopol.
The owner was accessible on email for any questions we had which worked out very well. We all recommend it highly.
I stayed at this beautiful home last weekend with five friends who were riding the Gran Fondo in Santa Rosa. The home is beautiful and well appointed, not to mention surrounded by vineyards. We cooked dinner Friday night and I found the kitchen to be very functional and well appointed including All Clad cookware. The spa is very nice and was heated and worked perfectly. One of the neighbors had a puppy that kept showing up to visit with us. We loved her visits and were sad to leave her at the end of the trip. All in all this is a beautiful home and we are definitely hoping to use it again next year when we come back, only hopefully staying a little longer. Thanks for the use of this beautiful home.
We had the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful place from the 2nd to the 5th of July. The pictures don't do it justice. Not only is the house lovely, with king sized beds in all the bedrooms, a wonderful, fully equipped kitchen and manicured grounds; it also sits in the middle of a vineyard!!! Complete privacy, without being too far from anything in or near Sebastopol, with it's excellent restaurants and shopping.There are also many fine wineries near by. David was great to work with. We hope to be making return trips to this little piece of paradise.
