ANDERSON VALLEY RANCH: REDWOODS, VIEWS, POOL, SPA, VINEYARDS

Boonville Estate Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-11)

This is an unique property nestled in the western hills above Boonville, CA, Anderson Valley. Anderson Valley is known for its beautiful redwoods and delicious white wines and Pinot Noir. The property has two separate homes on it. The smaller home is a 1200 square foot country-style cabin with two bedrooms, 1.5 baths and a great room with wood stove, kitchen, and living and dining areas. The wrap-around deck affords you a breathtaking view of the south-end of Anderson Valley where you can watch aircraft take-off and land below you! This house sleeps 2 couples and also has a bonus loft with fouton.

The main house is attached to the pool facilities a short walk away from the smaller home. This two bedroom, two bath, two story home is recently remodeled and sleeps two couples privately. The loft above the kitchen (housing the tv area) also has two fouton couches that can provide additional sleeping opportunities. The main room of the house is wide open and circular in design with a massive spherical skylight in the roof. The kitchen boasts all new appliances and a completely remodeled design.

On your way to the pool facilities the back yard offers a modest valley view where a large wood-fire (or gas) grill affords great grilling opportunities (we like to use our own oak logs to build grill fires). The pool facilities have a hot tub, sauna, changing rooms for men and women, bathroom, outdoor showers, outside pool bar with fridge, sinks, and ice machine, fire pit, and of course the salt pool. The pool is heated via radiant solar heat and remains warm during the summer and fall months (from mid May to mid October). The pool bar features a flat screen TV with connection to the satellite to watch your favorite team. The arbor is recently planted to table grapes. There are rock walls and a nice little lawn for the kids to play. The entire thing is nestled in among redwoods, olive groves, a 6-acre organic pinot noir vineyard with a frog pond. Fruit trees and gardens are everywhere. There is also a large barn with a live-in on-site caretaker who also tends our 4 friendly dogs.

The property is 10 minutes to the airport; 12 minutes to Boonville's shops and restaurants; and 25 minutes from all the wineries in the Valley (some wineries are just 15 minutes away). Despite this proximity, we are at the end of the road and you have the feeling that you are in the middle of nowhere.

Keywords: Ranch, wineries, vineyard, anderson valley, privacy, secluded.

I'm an executive at a New York based technology company that develops marketing automation systems for major brands. I live in Alabama (see below). Prior to moving to Alabama, I ran my own consulting business in San Francisco for nearly 15 years; that's how I ended up with this wonderful ranch. My dream was to live on and off the land.

john and palma purchased this estate in 1992

I've owned this property for nearly 20 years and have spent millions developing it into an unbelievable vineyard/ranch/resort home. My wonderful wife, however, is from the Southern US and prefers to raise our young children in Alabama. Therefore, rather than parting with the ranch, we've decided to rent it out until such time as I can convince her to move back!

Near to all the wineries and Hendy Woods State Park and farm stands and the shops and restaurants in Boonville, but yet feels like you are out in the middle of the forest. Views from guest house are mesmerizing. Pool bar/fire pit area tends to be the central location for parties.

Beautiful estate

Two days wasn't enough! Nobody wanted to leave when our weekend was over. The property is beautifully maintained, both inside and out. The kitchen was fully stocked and all the extras, wine and chocolate, was a wonderful surprise. Palma was extremely helpful and easy to coordinate with. This is a great spot for a large group, and we are already trying to pick a date for this summer to come back. The only drawback was the lack of curtains for all the amazing windows. After a long day and night of wine drinking it would have been nice to shut out some of the sunshine.

Amazing place. It is very challenging finding a lace for 8 of us plus 4 dogs...so it was a huge comfort to. To only find this place, but it was better than expected. We weren't there long, so it had way more amenities than we could have every taken advantage of. I would return in a heartbeat. The property manager was friendly and extremely nice. The place was super clean and well taken care of.

We had a fantastic time sharing a group 50th Birthday and Reunion for five couples. Everything was extremely comfortable. The highlights are the awesome views, the tranquil setting, and the pool and fire pit. Easy access only a few minutes up the mountain from Boonville, but why leave the mountain?

Awesome Getaway, Unforgettable Views

Just stayed at the Buckner Mountain Ranch on an early-fall weekend, and it was stupendous. The main house and guest house are both impeccably maintained; the pool rivals top resorts--and best of all, the staff is just fantastic: warm, friendly, and attentive to every detail. We did wine-tasting on Thursday, a trip to the Coast on Saturday, and every day coming back to the ranch was like, well, coming home. We had a farewell party by the fire-pit that I'll never forget. If you're looking for a little seclusion without compromise on luxury, this is the place!

Pool Party!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
I stayed at the Buckner Mountain Estate in late august with 10 friends (5 couples). I can say that this was by far the best house I've ever stayed at!

A little bit about the property. It's on a hillside that is extremely secluded from other neighbors. You can pretty much make as much noise as you want, and no one will hear you. But there is a Main house, Guest house, and pool area.

The main house is fairly new, and it's kitchen has all modern appliances. The kitchen is also fully stocked with large pots and pans for cooking big meals. There isn't a huge formal dining area, but the outside patio area has a large picnic table to use.

The guest house is about a 5 minute walk down a path (2 minute drive). And is pretty secluded from the main house. But it's very 'cute' and has an incredible view of Anderson Valley. Watching the sunrise is awesome from here.

And the highlight of the property is most definitely the pool area. There is a huge (solar heated) salt water pool. The one downside of the salt water for me is that I had to immediately rinse off after, or else my skin would get really irritated. But rinsing off isn't a problem when there's two outdoor showers adjacent to the pool! And next to the showers are two(!) changing rooms and a bathroom with toilet! So convenient! And there's also a pool bar with a TV, and two hammocks. Other amenities of the pool area are the hot tub and sauna. Did I mention the built-in bose sound system?? Easily plug in your iPhone to hear tunes while playing in the pool. There are some inflatable toys/chairs to enjoy as well. There's also a nice little elevated mound of grass that is perfect for laying out on while supervising the water activities. There are also a number of lounge chairs and tables to seat your whole group.

And then the nice surprise to the house was the fire pit! Just like camping :) It was really nice to have everyone hang out at night with a nice campfire to cap off the day.

And I never ever saw the property caretaker, which was nice too! Palma is SO NICE and friendly. She was in constant contact setting up the trip. She walked us through the house was super relaxed about everything. Her priority is to make sure you ENJOY YOUR STAY.

Overall, the house is in incredible shape. It's great for groups that want to get away and have their own place. It was like a private pool party. All while still having the comforts and coziness of your own home. I would absolutely stay here again.
