Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

3 LRG BDRMs, 3 FULL BATHS (perfect for up to 6). PROF. Chef Kitchen & Dining 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 Sonoma Plaza and Glen Ellen. This is an exclusive, premium custom-built home that offers you an amazing space in a serene and unique setting, all Sonoma style!

We are a NEWLY built, craftsman-era home with over 2700 feet of vaulted wood ceilings, red oak hardwood floors, massive windows, and an open floor plan that will embrace you with continuity and openness. Each window and balcony offers amazing wooded and valley views. Take advantage of our acreage, including custom 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 varieties. Our property is active with deer, wild turkeys, and many species of birds.

One of the many highlights of our home includes our custom constructed Executive Chef Kitchen with Viking appliances, custom leather granite & cabinets, including an amazing kitchen island that comfortably seats 6 for any gathering. You can personally take advantage of all the amenities of a professional chef, or skip the cooking, and enjoy an in-house Chef prepared experience that we can help you arrange. Sip a glass of wine off one of our many decks, perfect for outside lounging, or viewing the wildlife.

Adjacent to the Kitchen lies a Butler’s Pantry (a smaller kitchen), equipped with an extra dishwasher, sink & prep area with plenty of space. Our spacious Dining Room offers serious entertaining, with 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 & well decorated, with the Master Suite encompassing 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 our techno-savvy guests, we offer a Wireless Entry system (no key needed), WiFi & Satellite TV (w/ FULL DirectTV channel offerings). While are fully equipped for entertaining, we cannot accommodate parties larger than 6 guests, owing to zoning, permit regulations, and our septic capacity.

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 plan their trips, and enjoy all that Sonoma has to offer.

We are a permitted Sonoma County Vacation: TOT Certificate #995N.




“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 hot tub was sparkling clean and comfortable.” (6/24/14)

*********************************************************We tend to book well in advance, especially for the Peak Season months, so please let us know what dates you have in mind (our calendar is always up to date).

About Kathy & David

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 & David purchased this house in 2012

Why Kathy & David chose Sonoma

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

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!

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.

Comfortable and Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

The pictures on the site don’t really do this house justice. This house is absolutely gorgeous. We had six individuals stay at this beautiful house and it was big enough for everyone to have a separate place to sleep comfortably and still cozy enough to enjoy everyone’s company. The location is perfect for both Sonoma and Napa. Kathy and the property manager both kept in consistent contact and made sure we had everything we needed which only added to the experience. We are already planning on staying here for our next trip and I personally will probably come back as well on my own. Thanks for letting us stay in your house!

Did not want to ever leave!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this lovely property. As soon as we walked in the door we felt right at home. The house itself is spectacular with lovely large windows on all sides that allow you to appreciate the private, wooded lot. Everything you could ask for is here and if you like to cook the kitchen is a dream! The home was sparkling clean and the furnishings were comfortable and tasteful. I really enjoyed the sunrise view off the dining room deck and the backyard hot tub was pure heaven after a long hard day of wine tasting. :) We stayed with our daughter and son in law who drove up from the Bay area and we all enjoyed our family time together in this wonderful home. The owners were helpful and accommodating and they thoughtfully left us a bottle of bubbly in the 'fridge and logs for the woodstove. They even had some holiday decorations out for us as we were there during Christmas week. Thank you, Kathy & David, for sharing your amazing home with us. We hope to have the opportunity to come back again sometime.

A Memorable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family, 6 of us in all, spent Thanksgiving week at this wonderful home. We enjoyed watching football games on the HD TV, the ever-warm hot tub, the lovely and relaxing grounds, and the beautiful kitchen and dining room for our Thanksgiving feast. The owner, Kathy, was always quick to respond to my emails. The house was exceptionally clean and in good order. We hated to leave, one week didn't seem long enough!

As Advertised. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived to find a beautiful, clean, and well supplied home in a peaceful setting. The house is architecturally interesting and well appointed. The owners were accommodating throughout our week long stay and made us feel like personal guests. We highly recommend Deer Park Retreat!

Car: recommended

Deer Park Retreat is located in hills, just 10 minutes west of Sonoma Plaza. The location offers a wonderful view of Mt. Diablo, and embraces many hiking trails for outdoor adventurists! San Francisco is just 48 miles away, and Tomales Bay (ocean) is just 37 miles west. Tons of local wineries, parks and fantastic restaurants right here in Sonoma!
