Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description
House, Two Bedrooms, Library/Media Room, 2 Full Baths, 1/2 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)
HGTV included this house in its ‘Dream Home Sonoma' program as one of the delightful homes of Sonoma. This custom-designed property, perfect for one or two couples looking for a wine country retreat, is located one block from the historic Sonoma Plaza with its tasting rooms, specialty shops, and restaurants. Leave your car at home and walk to everything.
Open the front gate. Walk along the curvy flagstone path and up a few steps to the sunny front porch. Open the double French entrance doors and you will find a home that is beautiful, immaculate, and relaxing. Custom designed by the owner, the home has stunning reclaimed wood floors, gas fireplaces in two living areas, and vaulted ceilings. The Library/Media Room with 55' HDTV offers comfort and privacy. The fully-appointed kitchen was designed for the gourmet chef and is perfect for entertaining.
The house was built with our planet in mind. Green features include an on-demand hot water system, all Energy Star appliances, energy-efficient windows and walls, ceiling fans, and clean gas-burning fireplaces. The floors are custom Beech reclaimed from a former tobacco barn and 150-year old Midwest barn beams have been reused as fireplace mantels.
Outside is an award-winning garden that is a friendly haven for butterflies, birds, and gorgeous blooms accented by a softly burbling fountain.
You will love it!

Winnie purchased this house in 2008
Why Winnie chose Sonoma
We designed and built this house in 2008 as our country retreat. We enjoy sharing it with others who love the wine country as we do. When we are at Chez Winnie, we enjoy some of the best wine tasting in the Valley, then walk to one of our favorite restaurants on the Plaza, perhaps watch a film at the Sebastiani Theater, and stop for ice cream on the walk home. It couldn't be better.
If we want an adventure, there are so many things to do. Sonoma County was the first wine region in California. It enjoys a 55 mile picturesque coastline, beautiful redwoods, and is dominated by established lineages of family-owned vineyards and wineries.
Interestingly, approximately 35% of all Bay Area and Wine Country Michelin-rated restaurants are in our wine country.
What makes this house unique
There are many beautiful vacation homes in Sonoma, but few capture the unique charm of life in the wine country like Chez Winnie -- and there are very few within walking distance of the Plaza. As a recent guest said, 'When you step inside, you will realize that this is much more than a place to stay; it's like living the Sonoma experience to the fullest.'
