Overview

Boonville Estate Rental Photos and Description

2 Houses and barn: 6 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-20)

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 world class Pinot Noir. The property has two separate homes and a barn with a loft apartment. 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. and futon couch in the living rtoom.

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 2 friendly dogs.

We recently added a 2,000 square foot loft apartment in the barn that offers two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a kitchen with all new appliances. the living area overlooks the vineyard.

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.

The different facilities are made available depending on number of guests in your party. Normally, we offer only the main house and guest house for up to 10 people. Larger groups pay more and may also need use of the barn. If we include the barn, there is an additional cleaning fee. Just because the barn is on this website does not mean it would automatically be included in your rental. The pool facilities are always part of the rental and we never rent a portion of the property to different guests at the same time.

While it sure feels like you are isolated on the ranch, please be thoughtful of the neighbors. Sound travels extremely well across the vineyard, and there is a county noise ordinance of 10:00 pm. Extremely loud voices or music late into the night might well result in neighbors contacting the Sheriff's department.

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

About john and palma

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

Why john and palma chose Boonville

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!

What makes this estate unique

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.

Gorgeous Setting!

  • 4 of 5
The Buckner estate is truly magical and property manager, Palma, is a real gem-- SO generous and accommodating. It was the perfect spot for our daughter's wedding, and our family enjoyed a relaxing weekend stay there in a spectacular setting. The pool, the Guest House and its view, and the lawn area near the main house are all lovely for entertaining, and the well equipped kitchens really met our needs. However, the number of guests it can accommodate is a bit misleading, which is why I can't give the listing 5 stars. There is a serious problem with privacy, especially in the Guest House. Though it says the Guest House can sleep 2 couples, and has 1.5 bathrooms, there is a shared bath with NO door between the master bedroom and the bathroom, the one with the shower. There were also no curtains on the bedroom glass doors. And anyone who sleeps on one of the extra futons has to enter a bedroom in order to use the bathroom. We were a bit shocked to find this out when we got there. The owner's response when I brought this to his attention afterwards is that they will just have to insist on giving tours for large groups (so they know what they are getting) NOT, that they should correct the bizarre bathroom situation. He told me that "when asked, he always tells people that 20 overnight guests can only work if it's mostly kids", and that they really "discourage any more than 6 couples (12 adults) because of the general lack of privacy". So, if you need to use the Guest House for your group, and are not able to take a tour prior to booking, you should be aware of this peculiar arrangement.
Other than the privacy issue, we loved this place. If this flaw can be taken care of, we wholeheartedly recommend the property and would be very excited to stay there again.

magical escape!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for my older sister's bachlorette weekend. There were about 12 of us, and everyone was so in awe of the property! The pool is like a 5-star resort with an excellent soundsystem, hot tub and sauna room. The property was also quite fun to explore with tons of trees and woods to explore. I definitely recommend this property for a magical getaway! I also loved exploring Boonville and the surrounding vineyards. Would love to come back!

Wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely wonderful time had at our small family wedding! Palma was a wonderful host and we were amazed at all aspects of the property. Pool area was so nice, Bose speakers full bar area, hot tub sauna, pool and fire pit were the most popular areas for sure. The view from the lower guesthouse is awesome! It was also perfect as the bride and I were able to stay in the lower house away from the hustle and bustle of the main house. Beautiful vineyards, redwoods, everything!! We are already planning another excuse to come back with the whole family!

Best Spring Break Ever!

  • 5 of 5
We had SUCH a wonderful time. We relaxed by the pool, played a little bocce, the kids caught frogs from the pond (and released them) and we rescued quite a few little hoppers from the pool and fire pit. We went on lovely strolls and hiked down the hill a ways. We built fires in the fire pit and roasted marshmallows, watching the Giants game on the bar TV. We loved meeting Daisy and Donnie and our little dogs were in seventh heaven.

The houses are beautiful, the pool and facilities there just top notch. We hope we can make it back there again soon. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful space for us urban dwellers to enjoy!

The fire pit is a very popular part of the ranch located near the pool bar which also boasts two very comfy hammocks. If you like cooking with wood, we have an enormous wood fire webber and we stock our own local organic oak wood with which to cook. The property has a pool, hot tub, and a pond, none of which are gated. Please supervise all guests, especially children. We have no lifeguards on duty! At times, you may encounter maintenance staff, although this is rare on weekends.
