My husband and I raised our two children on this idyllic property and we are semi-retired and enjoy renting out the The Carriage House. You will love the view and solitude as well as the surrounding scenery and the local restaurants and 'things to do'.

Diane Rooney purchased this estate in 1999

Very private with magnificent views. The property is well laid out allowing private walks for talks and enjoying seasonal vegetables and fruits.

We are close to downtown, music spots including Hop Monk Tavern and Aubergine, two great music and food venues. Local restaurants do not disappoint. We have enjoyed Corks, French Garden, KL Bistro and Sushi Hannah, Gypsy Cafe, East West Cafe and El Cornell. We now have :The Barlow' which includes breweries, wineries, restaurants and some great shopping.

Something for everyone.

THE PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
Diane and Nick were beyond hospitable for our weekend retreat. And the carriage house was perfect. The accommodations were lovely and the views could not be beat. We can't wait to plan our next weekend at their home!

WHAT A WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
The posted photos do not do the place justice. The interior of the rental is spacious and clean with lot's of good light. The outside area is absolutely beautiful and also very spacious with a great view of the valley below. The thing that's truly special about this rental though are the owners, Nick and Diane. They really made us feel like a part of the family and they are truly wonderful and interesting people. In fact, I'm convinced that our three year old thought they were family from the get go by the ease in which he interacted with them. Do yourself a favor and don't miss this place!!!

WONDERFUL ACCOMMODATIONS AND EXCEPTIONAL HOSTS/HOSPITALITY

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent a week at the Carriage House while in Sebastopol for our son's July wedding. (Coincidentally, when we received the address we discovered it was conveniently very close to the wedding location at a nearby apple ranch, which made it even better!!) Our hosts were more than gracious and we enjoyed our many chats with them - even sharing a glass of wine!!! They were also helpful before our arrival in recommending what turned out to be an excellent location for the rehearsal dinner (HopMonk). What could have been a very stressful time (had we stayed in a hotel) turned out to be both relaxing and restful. We were able to have family members stay with us on the night of the wedding, which was fun. We could relax not worrying about them driving home - and could have a great visit and breakfast together the next day. I would recommend anyone coming to Sebastopol for a wedding consider this option!!!

The carriage house is airy and light and the beds could not be more comfortable. We slept as well or better than we do at home!! We found the furnishings very attractive and comfortable and the rooms spacious. The photos on this website are very accurate. Everything we needed was there to prepare meals, which was so much nicer than eating out. There is Wi-Fi available and even a desk for taking care of "business" matters. Truly "all the comforts of home" are there! Another bonus are the wonderful grounds and views, not to mention picking plums and such off the trees. Although we did not swim, the pool area is very nice for sitting and relaxing, reading, and/or enjoying the views. Another bonus is that the house is at the end of a lane so that it is very quiet at night - except for the owl whose hoots we enjoyed hearing from the trees.

Following the wedding we were able to enjoy several short day trips, taking drives to the coast, St. Helena, and Healdsburg - all within a short distance. We are Northern Californians so sightseeing was not on our list, but we truly felt we were "at home way from home" and able to enjoy all the wonderful things that the area offers. We have already talked about booking another stay and/or making it a yearly "getaway."

We hope everyone will enjoy their stay as much as we did!!!

FANTASTIC HOME

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful home, perfect for a stay in wine country. We shared this home with another family and the kids and adults had an equally fun time. I agree with the reviewer who noted that the pictures don't/can't do this home justice - the house is lovely, exudes incredible warmth, is fully equipped with anything anyone of any age would need, and is a perfect place for great long meals, enjoying nature and wildlife, lounging, and having a lot of fun with family and/or friends. The views and surrounding property are unbeatable, whatever the weather. And Diane and Nick could not have been more kind, child-friendly and conscientious, from the moment they responded to our email request on VRBO to the moment we left. We've rented from others in wine country through VRBO and this was the best experience we've ever had.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! ON PARLE FRANCAIS AUSSI.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Nick and Diane's property for three weeks this year in Jan-Feb. It is a fabulous place with lots of space and light and Meyer lemon trees all around. As it's near the top of the ridge to the west of Sebastopol and is oriented to the east, it has a stunning view out over the Russian River Valley towards Santa Rosa and the Mayacamas Mountains that divide the Sonoma and Napa.

The property is extremely spacious, but inside and out, and I'd say that it is so large we weren't able to take advantage of all of it. The kitchen is well equipped, it has plenty of sitting areas and there is a large study which served us well for the bits of work we had to do. There is plenty of space outside as well, but since we were there in January, we weren't able to take advantage of all it offered.

Nick and Diane have a smaller house in the compound and we found this to be very helpful when we had questions about things like, 'Where is the juice pitcher?'. Also, Nick is fluent in French, which would be an advantage for those whose groups include people more comfortable in that language.

We had friends visiting on two occasions and they found the property to be great as well. We all had plenty to space to enjoy being together, but also to find privacy if we wanted.

The location is also great. We have been to Sonoma County often and had stayed in the Sebastopol vicinity, but are now especially found of that area. It is very convenient to Santa Rosa, the coast and to lots of great wineries and restaurants.

If you are looking for a place to get away for a while or to have a smallish family reunion, we would recommend it heartily!

GORGEOUS, COMPLETE AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
Truly an elegant, clean and beautifully furnished yet pet-friendly home with the classic California wine country views. Private and quiet with a stunning professionally equipped kitchen and great cookbooks that had us out in the garden picking greens and herbs to cook with even in the middle of winter. Most rooms look over the garden across grapevines to distant hills and the beds and couches are the most comfortable we've ever had in a rental and we rent five months of the year. Owners Nick and Diane were extremely gracious, helpful and discreet; though their home is next door we never saw or heard them unless we needed something. Worth every cent, just bring a toothbrush because that's all you'll need. Like having your own private spa with the huge steam room/shower, claw foot soaking tub, outdoor hot tub and pool -- we did not want to leave!
