AMAZING MOUNTAIN WINE RETREAT W/ HOT TUB

Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

3 LRG BDRMs, 3 FULL BATHS (perfect for 2-6). Professional Chef Kitchen & Area!

TREAT yourself and friends to this magnificent Mountain Retreat, located in the exclusive 'Diamond A' Estates community on Sonoma Mountain, just minutes west of the Plaza. Our vacation home is situated in a secluded area on 2+ acres, with no other houses in sight, right at the end of a private country road. We are located right in the heart of Wine Country, less than a 10-minute drive to both the Plaza & Glen Ellen region. This is not a typical track house vacation rental--this is a premium custom-built home that offers you an amazing space in a serene and unique setting Sonoma style! Our kitchen area, in and of itself is spectacular--offering a FULL PROFESSIONAL CHEF KITCHEN with a fabulous island--perfect for cooking and gabbing with friends over a glass of wine--all embraced within a mountain setting. Then, continue into the pantry kitchen, and spacious dining room for serious entertaining and you will be in your element!

We are a NEWLY built, craftsman-era home with over 2700 feet of vaulted wood ceilings, red oak hardwood floors, massive windows (light!), and an open floor plan that will embrace you with continuity and openness. Each window and balcony offers an amazing wooded and valley views from every window & balcony. Take advantage of our acreage, including custom walking & hiking trails around the house, and waterfall ponds that add a constant babbling of nature. The house is engulfed by Oak, Maple, and Bay trees with many fern species; our property is active with deer, wild turkeys, and many species of birds.

The highlight of our home includes our NEWLY constructed Executive Chef Kitchen with Viking appliances, custom granite & cabinets--w/ all the amenities of a Professional Chef. You can skip the cooking, and enjoy an in-house Chef prepared four-course meal, prepared w/ local, Sonoma organic ingredients--with clean up included (inquire for more details). Sip a glass of wine off one of our 4 decks areas, perfect for outside lounging. Our massive kitchen island seats 6 comfortably for any gathering. Adjacent to the Kitchen lies a Butler’s Pantry (a smaller kitchen), equipped with an extra dishwasher, sink & prep area with plenty of space. A separate & spacious Dining Room seats up to 10, with an adjoining outside deck, offering fabulous views.

Take advantage of dipping yourself into our Hot Tub (w/ shower), with complete privacy--no houses or fences in sight to disturb your experience.

All three bedrooms are spacious, with the Master Suite encompassing all of the 2nd floor, complete with its own deck, massive closet, and newly built Master Bath. The Guest Suite offers its own unique getaway--with warm, pine-paneled walls, it includes a kitchen, with plenty of space for dining & lounging. Both the Guest Suite and the Guest Room have their own entrance leading out to the hot tub deck. Off the Living Room, there is a wine tasting (or game) room, ideal for… well… wine tasting, playing games, reading, or just hanging out. There are three FULL bathrooms, all NEWLY constructed “Sonoma” style.

For you techno-savvy guests, we offer a Wireless Entry system (no key needed), WiFi & Satellite TV (w/ FULL DirectTV HBO, Showtime, & Sports channels). While we are fully equipped for entertaining-- this is our family country home. We cannot accommodate large parties, owing to zoning and permit regulations. We do not wish to disturb our neighbors in this peaceful, private area and ask that no more than six guests stay over night.

We are owner-operated, so you don't have to go through a third party management company to ask questions or arrange your booking--we are very responsive and love to help our out of town guests.

*Please Note: Because of a recent surge of burglaries in Sonoma County of vacation rental properties, we are not allowing viewers to see the exact location of our home. We can easily provide this information to future travelers and guests booking with us--thank you for understanding!*

Guestbook comments from the owner
Good morning, Kathy and Dave.

As expected, your home is lovely and welcoming. The setting is heavenly (close to it anyway)...Our daughters are loving your kitchen and all that is available to us. The beds are so comfortable and the various sitting/eating areas allow for so many options. Also, thanks for the convenience of so many televisions! Our family tends to watch very different things and we all fall asleep watching our own! Thank you especially for the information book you keep on the table in the main living space. It has been a wonderful guide. I went to the Sonoma Market yesterday, as your suggested.

We are having private dinner with Allison and Chef Don Friday and are looking forward to the experience.

Thanks for checking in. We could not be more pleased!

Being native to the Bay Area, we have been traveling to Sonoma County for many years, doing VRBO/Homeaway ourselves. It has been a long process, but we finally were able to purchase our own home in an ideal area that we just love. If you enjoy cycling and hiking, it is ideal! Now, we want to share it with other travelers seeking all that this area has offer, and hope that you will love it too!

Kathy & Dave, Owners purchased this house in 2012

Western Sonoma offers a special, unique mountain experience, so you gotta love the outdoors. This area is a ideal, mountain-oriented community, with horses and hiking lending many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors or just bask in nature. What intrigues us the most is the outdoor setting that envelopes ferns, Oak and Bay trees, moss, and greenery everywhere. The house itself is very secluded, with no other residences close by. A dream for us.

We are owner-operated and provide each guest with detailed attention, responsiveness to their booking and travel needs--we are exceptionally user friendly! We provide each guest stay with fresh flowers, and a bottle of local champagne or wine!

THE PERFECT SONOMA RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
We celebrated our 40th anniversary with a trip to Sonoma. Deer Park Retreat was the perfect place for us! It was exceptionally clean and well organized. Kathy was very responsive to our questions. More than this, Deer Park was a tranquil oasis to which we returned after a day of touring. It was so quiet, peaceful and relaxing. There was a feeling of complete privacy as no other homes could be seen from any of the decks or the driveway. We enjoyed the sunrise from the front deck (while sipping coffee and listening to the birds). In the evening we had a glass of wine on the same deck and watched the hawks soaring. We had dinner at home each night. The appliances are top notch which made for easy cooking. All in all it was total perfection! We hated to leave.

FABULOUS MOUNTAIN RETREAT! EXCELLENT FOR FOODIES!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Deer Park retreat as an alternative to a hotel stay for our nephew's wedding. We couldn't be more pleased. It was a "WOW" from the time we opened the door until we left. The kitchen was amazing, so well equipped for those of us who love to cook. We had at our fingertips everything we needed. The property was immaculate and well maintained! We had deer visit us in the morning. The hot tub was sparkling clean and comfortable. We cannot wait to return to enjoy a long weekend in Sonoma, dining and wine tasting. We are local people from the Bay Area and it is great to know we have a place to stay for a close-by getaway. The owners were easily accessible for any questions that I had. We are experienced travelers and would recommend this property to anyone who wants a quality place to stay for a visit to the Napa-Sonoma wine country.

LIKE BEING IN A LUXURY TREEHOUSE

  • 4 of 5
From almost every window, all you see is trees. Gorgeous! Sadly, we weren't able to stay long enough to really enjoy all this house has to offer, though we did use many of the numerous kitchen gadgets and enjoyed a dip in the hot tub. The bed in the "suite" was not comfortable at all, and we did have a septic system alarm go off on our way to check out, but those aside, it was a lovely place. We would highly recommend a new mattress for the one bed. The owners and their manager were all helpful, accommodating and easy to deal with. We would recommend this rental and would give it 5 stars but for the bed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, and were pleased you enjoyed your stay and the house. We realize that everyone has a different preference for their mattress, and wanted to note that the bed in the Guest Suite is a NEW Stearns & Foster w/ pillow top. It does differ from our other beds, which are memory foam mattresses. Some guests find this bed preferable over the memory foam, and we apologize if you were not comfortable! Regarding the septic system, we are so sorry that you were disturbed as you were leaving the property. We did have a loose wire in the breaker box that was immediately repaired. Again, we do appreciate feedback & wish we could have responded to your concerns more personally during your stay had we known.

VERY IMPRESSIVE....IDEAL VACATION RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
Gorgeous, beautiful scenery and layout was ideal for 3 couples. House was exactly as pictured and was ready for us on our arrival. Allison even did some grocery shopping for us and had the pantry and fridge stocked so we didn't have to waste "wine time" doing it ourselves. The kitchen is a cook's dream and we fully enjoyed the use of it and the dining room every morning. The house was spacious and comfortable...and the hot tub was put to use after long wine tasting days. Highly recommend this home. Location was perfect!

ALL THAT WE HAD HOPED FOR.....

  • 5 of 5
Our family visited Deer Creek from 4/13 to 4/20/14. The details contained in the description of the property were exact in their representation. This home is absolutely lovely and so very warm and welcoming. The kitchen is well stocked. All of the bedrooms are a good size and the beds very comfortable. The owner, Kathy is a gracious lady and extremely responsive. Alice, the property manager is wonderful and also extremely responsive. We took advantage of the opportunity to have a private meal prepared and served while we were there. Chef Don and Alice provided a beautifully prepared, tasty meal with fun and laughter. Our grown children (2 daughters and their husbands) enjoyed the hot tub. Our favorite winery was the Schramsberg, Calistoga, Ca. Our favorite restaurant was Glen Ellen Inn located in Glen Ellen, Ca. We made great use of the information binder on the coffee table in the great room. Thank you, Kathy for sharing your home.
