Partners Mark Berry & Rob Akins moved from San Diego to Forestville and bought an old apple farm to fulfill their dream of growing olives and making olive oil. Inspired by the beauty of Sonoma County, Mark & Rob have planted out their two acres of heaven with ornamental and vegetable gardens, hidden walk ways, fruit orchards, olive groves and open meadows to delight the eye and stimulate the senses.

AMAZING SPOT, AMAZING HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
This home exceeded all of our expectations. The only regret my husband and I had was that we did not stay longer. The home was gorgeous, set on a spectacular piece of property, and was close to everything. The hosts recommendations were great and we really appreciated all the little touches, such as the stocked fridge, the robes, and toiletries...... not to mention the delicious fig appetizers .....
Thanks for an amazing anniversary trip!

SUPER LUXURY!.....REALLY!

  • 5 of 5
There are too many things to appreciate about our stay at Mark and Rob's cottage. The overall impression is an attention to detail and a feeling of being very pampered. The furnishings, amenities, peaceful outlook....I could go on and on....oh!, don't forget the impressive art collection!
Top wineries are literally 7 minutes away....what a great place to come home to!

TRULY A GEM!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I extended a business trip with three days in the Russian River Valley and we could not have been more pleased. This carriage house is truly a gem! It was easy to find and provided great access to visit the local wineries. Exceptionally clean and surprisingly quiet, it offers a comfortable bed, a great bathroom and a well appointed kitchenette, all snuggled under a vaulted ceiling. With a fireplace and views out to the olive grove it was difficult for us to leave. We highly recommend it as a weekend getaway or a month long retreat. You won't be disappointed.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT IN RUSSIAN RIVER WINE COUNTRY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Carriage House in Forestville for our anniversary weekend, and we couldn't have stayed at a more beautiful, peaceful, lovely location. From the small touches around the apartment to being greeted with a great bottle of wine, a delicious tray of cheeses and other snacks by Mark and Rob to the welcoming deck overlooking the lovely gardens. The interior reminded us of a 5 star hotel with all the luxurious things you would expect (high thread count sheets, fluffy thick towels, high end bathroom products and warm soft robes).

The location is perfect if you want to do wine tasting at some great wineries or even outdoor activities such as hiking in Armstrong State Park. We walked into Forestville for dinner our first night and had a wonderful dinner at a restaurant recommended by Mark and Rob.

With the Carriage house only 45 minutes away from us we will definitely stay there again. We highly recommend it to everyone. It was hard to go home!

HARVEST WEEKEND

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I spent two nights at the carriage house in Forestville. Overall it was a lovely experience. The suite reminded me more of the Four Seasons than some one's guest suite. The hosts were great - attentive while allowing us lots of privacy. The location is close to wineries, restaurants, and attractions even if the street is a bit suburban.

We're looking forward to returning there again in the future!

QUINTESSENTIAL WINE COUNTRY EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I wanted to experience Wine Country for our honeymoon, but knew that a hotel room wouldn't be nearly the romantic setting we'd be looking for after a day of vineyards and gorgeous vistas. We found The Carriage House, and from the moment we connected with Mark and Rob it was the trip of a lifetime. They helped immediately by promptly providing us with a seemingly endless list of great things to do in the area (restaurants, hiking, biking, kayaking and canoeing, things to see and experience, and of course a marvelous list of local wineries...each one better than the last!), this helped us get excited and plan our trip.

Finding the location was simple, and it allowed us to drive directly north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate bridge and into Wine Country. We recognized the location from the pictures on the site, but what you can't experience by viewing pictures is the attention to detail you'll find at The Carriage House.

From the beauty and serenity of the property to the art and peace you'll find in House itself. The bathroom is beautiful and well-appointed. The bed is better than any hotel bed I've ever slept on (and I travel for a living), and the family room is cozy, modern and relaxing. It felt like coming home after long days of adventure and was just perfect!

We followed the recommendations that were provided to us by the owners and that led to an amazing experience...one that would be impossible to experience if you were at a hotel or planning this trip on your own. It made it truly relaxing and enjoyable!

We cannot say "THANK YOU" enough for such a wonderful honeymoon...we look forward to returning in the future to stay again at the Carriage House!!
