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 connecting with friends over a glass of wine--all embraced within a secluded mountain setting. Then, continue into the pantry kitchen, and spacious dining room for serious entertaining (including our private chef dinners) 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 serious 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 ppl, 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 & well decorated, 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.

We tend to book 5-6 months in advance, especially for the Peak Season months, so please let us know what dates you have in mind.

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.

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!

Unbelievable Property!! Truly an Amazing Rental!

  • 5 of 5
We had a brief stay at Deer Park Retreat and wish we could stay several more days!! We will definitely be returning as soon as we can plan another Sonoma trip. What an exceptional property from outside to in.... well maintained, stocked and a genuine "Sonoma" style house. The kitchen-pantry-dining area was designed for entertaining and cooking--like none other we've seen. The surrounding are just magical with unusual privacy. We found everything to be very comfortable--my husband and I stayed in the Suite Room and found the bed to be very comfy. The owners were great to deal with and very response. Went to several local wineries, and the newer restaurants in Glen Ellen--all very satisfying!!

Great stay at Deer Park Retreat

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful time spent at Deer Park, peaceful and relaxing. The house is beautiful with all the amenities. We loved hearing the brook outside our bedroom window at night, it was a perfect way to fall asleep! Chef Don and Allison provided a fantastic meal for our party one night. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer!

A peaceful, beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5
Deerpark Retreat was far more than we even expected. The setting in the woods provided numerous deer sightings, a relaxing hot tub, opportunities to hike, but close enough proximity to Sonoma's wineries, restaurants, and shopping. The home itself offered everything we wanted and we certainly appreciated all the amenities that the owners provided. We would definitely return and highly recommend this property!

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.
