When choosing a rental property for my sister's surprise 60th bday celebration in 'wine country' I needed to accommodate 3 couples, including bed size and private baths; and major 'wow' factor was on the top of the list. After searching several sites and choosing about 10 possibilities, not quite exactly what we wanted... until we found Balverne Manor, with a lake on the property, along with a pool, jaccuzzi and a pool table, it seemed we'd hit the jackpot, and we had! The photos were enticing and quite lovely, but did not hold a candle to the true in person property! Stunning! I felt like I was on a movie set driving up to the wrap around drive. Each room unique and fully equipped for whatever your whim. The spaciousness is what really invites the sensation of rich luxury pampering!
Early morning yoga in the sun room overlooking the pool and hillside, with the sound of birds chirping... later afternoon lounging on the back patio with a view that simply made the price tag fade. Luxury and relaxation all in one! The kitchen feels so expansive with an almost floor to ceiling picture window looking out over the pool & lake; we could have never left for wine tasting, except that's why we came!
I must also comment that Jim Farrell, owner, responded to my inquiry within an hour of my email, with a phone call. I heard from other inquiries 2 days to 2 weeks via email after they were sent. Promptness, to me, is key when planning a trip. The fact that this property is his and his family's home and he allows others to share it makes it even more special.
All 6 of us would definitely return given the opportunity!

Our stay was perfect. While the property was exactly as pictured, pictures cannot portray the warmth and graciousness of this home. Impeccably decorated and beautifully maintained it exceeded our expectations by offering every possible amenity. Our only challenge was taking full advantage of it all in the time we had. Conveniently located near Healdsburg and wineries we were able to tour the area while still spending time basking in the sun, taking a dip in the pool & hot tub or just lounging together watching movies with a bottle of wine. Balverne Manor and it's lovely owners have our highest recommendation and sincere thanks for a delightful holiday.

My husband and I, along with 2 other couples stayed at this remarkable home. It was everything we imagined and more! The house is magnificent. We all had comfortable rooms, and were able to make use of the billiard room, swimming pool, hot tub, and fishing boat on the pond. The grounds, landscaping, and vineyard made for a beautiful walks. I especially loved spotting an owl in the box set in the trees next to the house! We had chefs come to cook and they raved over how well the kitchen was equipped.
The location was perfect. Close to the town of Windsor and Healdsburg, and central to many vineyards for wine tasting! From start to finish, this was the best VRBO rental and vacation I have had to date. Thank you Debbie and Jim. We hope to return!!!

We are currently staying here... the home is gorgeous, immaculate and very well appointed. The location is convenient to shopping, golfing as well as the wineries in Napa and Sonoma. We are a picky group and all are quite satisfied with our choice. In addition to relaxing inside of the home; we have been enjoying the pool, patio and the lake on the beautifully landscaped and maintained grounds. The days are ticking by fast so I must run...going for a walk through the vineyards, and a dip in the pool before taking off for the wineries!!!

Vacation in the vineyards

Our family vacation at the Ferrell's French Country Estate was everything we had envisioned and more. The photos online are wonderful but upon entering this beautiful home, it was even more magnificent. Between the two patios, Master Bedroom sitting room, billiards room, the two living areas, chaise loungers overlooking the swimming pool and pond, one can find a private place to relax. We spent many delightful hours on their outdoor patio taking in the views of the swimming pool, pond, and vineyards. The gardens on the property were beautiful and all very well maintained. The Ferrell's were very friendly and helpful with any questions we had of the home or the area. We especially enjoyed cycling through the nearby areas of Dry Creek, Healdsburg, and Windsor. We look forward to returning to the Ferrell's French Country Estate in the near future.
