MOUNTAIN TOP WINE COUNTRY VILLA ON 70 ACRES

Kenwood Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

On a sunlit ridge high above the Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley, this villa combines a romantic retreat that is country yet sophisticated. The private cottage is part of a 3,000 acre pristine wilderness. The cottage has views that overlook our award winning, organic estate vineyard. The soul of this property is revealed through its full time residents. Friendly miniature donkeys, emu, and llamas. This estate vineyard and villa is located within minutes of Sonoma,Glen Ellen and Healdsburg ,which contain many world class wineries and fine restaurants. You will discover a welcome respite in this natural and unhurried environment.

The 'magic' of this property is in its artesian spring fed waters that flow into the pools and ponds surrounding the home. Your hosts Daniel and Betsy will be more than happy to provide you with their extensive local knowledge of the wine country . For more photos see our web site at Alpicella Vineyards and Villa.

Guestbook comments from the owner
What a great stay that we had! Thank you so much for sharing this little paradise with us. The donkeys, the emu and the lama even made this an even better experience! We especially enjoyed the walks through the vineyard and your insights into knowing the wine country. The memories of drinking your Sangiovesse

wine will be a lasting memory. We look forward to a rematch of bocci ball the next time we visit.

Amazing vacation

We were looking for a brief escape from the busy routine, and this place was just magical. We felt like a mini vacation abroad. The owners are such amazing people. We can't wait to be back.

Words cannot express...

  • 5 of 5
Words cannot express what a wonderful experience we had while staying on this incredible property! The views and the sense of peace that you can achieve while staying here are truly unmatched. :)
We found Dan and Betsy's place to be a perfect home base for our trip. It was easy to drive to the coast, Guerneville, Russian River Valley, and Sonoma. We were able to experience the best of both words - the natural beauty of Armstrong Woods and Sugarloaf Ridge State Park, as well as the wonderful wineries that the area has to offer. Our hosts offered valuable information, but more than that, they offered a little piece of their stories and their lives. We found our time there to be one of those experiences that restores your faith in man and in the power of nature to renew your soul.
The property gives you a lot to do even if you choose to just 'stay in' that day. There were great hikes easily accessible in a short time, as well as a great pool-side massage option. And the animals were always ready and willing companions! :)
We highly recommend the location for those who are looking for something different and who might be looking for a restorative vacation. The animals, the quiet, and the beautiful views made for a unique and unforgettable experience!

Beautiful Views and Helpful Owners

  • 5 of 5
I must agree with the other reviewers that the pictures do not do this rental justice. This is a wonderful paradise in Sonoma County and it perfectly fit with my ideal wine country vacation. The owners were also terrific and helped me plan how to best spend my time. They recommended several area wineries and restaurants that fit my tastes. I look forward to returning here on future visits.

For Animal Lovers

  • 5 of 5
We are animal lovers, so staying somewhere with miniature donkeys, an emu, a llama, wild deer and turkeys and frogs croaking at night (and a sweet family cat) - we were in heaven! We were lucky to spend quality time with Biscotti, the sweet miniature donkey born a week before our visit. We were also the first to see the newest baby deer who we named Angel. How often do you get to feed wild deer? Or an emu? And doing this while also basking in the sun by the gorgeous pool (with a diving board!) and enjoying lunch/dinner right off the grill with a sunset in full view. The property is far enough to feel completed removed but close enough to visit wineries and restaurants in the area (15 min drive). If you like to hike or mountain bike, Hood Park and Annadel Park are very close (you can walk to Hood park from the property). You can also hike on the property through some high grass, but nice views (we saw turkeys and a buck during our hike). Dan and Betsy were exceptionally nice and very accommodating and we enjoyed working in the mountain sangiovese vineyard with Dan. We will definitely be back! Thanks Dan and Betsy!

Ten stars!!!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrived at Alpicella until the moment we left, we experienced nothing but total serenity. The beauty of the land, the breathtaking views, the soulful wine and the generosity and energy of the owners, Betsy and Dan, all make it impossible not to feel totally relaxed and at home while you are at Alpicella. The guest cottage is beautifully appointed, extremely comfortable and private, offering a serene view of the hillside from the bed (a real treat to wake up and see the deer grazing on the hillside). The kitchen has everything one would need - whether heating up leftovers or preparing a multiple course feast (each of which you can enjoy from the beautiful deck overlooking the Alpicella Vineyard and the valley and hillsides beyond). Despite the indulgence and decadence we felt while staying here, everything feels extremely organic and fits seamlessly into the land - both physically and spiritually. Dan and Betsy have created a hidden paradise in Sonoma county. We highly recommend Betsy's customized vineyard tour and a swim in the mineral fed pool. Be sure to hear Dan and Betsy recount the history of the land and their work in creating this magical place. We highly recommend a stay at Alpicella for anyone (young or old, single or coupled) who wants to reconnect with nature and experience the treasures of this special hideaway in Sonoma County. We will DEFINITELY be back!

Are you kidding me?

  • 5 of 5
Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! I was speechless upon arrival and in awe for the entire visit. Dan you know exactly what I mean. Take it in and appreciate what he has built, (an oasis in the sky) or you have only cheated yourself. I could write a book or take all the pictures and post them, but it would fail to ever capture the magic and /or do it justice. Please don't go there or tell anyone else about this for my own selfish fear that it will be booked solid for years to come. I understand there are some great resorts and inns in town down the hill you might want to check out first!
