BEAUTIFUL NEW HOUSE ONE BLOCK FROM SONOMA PLAZA AND SONOMA MISSION

Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Library, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This delightful property is an architectural gem located one short block from the historic Sonoma Plaza with its tasting rooms, shops, restaurants and wineries. Leave your car at home and walk to everything!

Walk along the curvy flagstone path to the double French entrance doors. Enter into the Great Room. Note the naturally-distressed 'Tobacco Barn Beech' wood flooring. To your left is the sitting area with gas fireplace, leather sofa, and two large comfortable armchairs with ottomans. To your right is an 8 foot long French farm table which seats eight.

Love to cook? Spacious and open to the living area, the fully-appointed kitchen is enhanced by granite countertops, Travertine backsplash, and Murano glass pendant lights. You'll enjoy the Wolf range, as well as other high-end appliances. The kitchen was designed for the gourmet chef with entertaining friends in mind.

Down the hall is a second living area -- a cozy Library with a comfortable sofa sleeper, stone (gas) fireplace, HDTV with surround sound, and a book collection including both classics and recent bestsellers.

The sleeping areas are comfortable and private. The master bedroom suite, with king bed and ensuite bathroom, is located on the main level. The second bedroom suite, with queen bed and adjacent bathroom, is located on the second level.

Sit on the front porch in one of the four white wicker rockers and read a book or sip a glass of wine. Gather with friends under the vine-covered pergola. Depending upon the season, the garden features lavender, wisteria, fragrant yellow roses, California poppies, and purple clematis. It is accented by a softly burbling fountain.

HGTV included Chez Winnie in it's '2009 Dream Home Sonoma' program as one of the delightful homes of this beautiful town.

About Winnie

We're both professionals who live about an hour away from Sonoma. We have many interests, which you will see when you visit Chez Winnie. These include reading, photography, travel, art, cooking, gardening, cycling, and, of course, wine!

Winnie purchased this house in 2008

Why Winnie chose Sonoma

We built Chez Winnie in 2008 as a retreat from our busy life in San Francisco. It's our Sonoma home and we enjoy sharing it with others who love the wine country as we do. When we are at Chez Winnie, we walk to some of the best wine tasting in the Valley, then go to our favorite restaurant on the Plaza, 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 Wine Country. Not bad for farming communities!

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.'

Guestbook comments from the owner

Winnie -- Thank you for the opportunity to stay at "Chez Winnie". Our visit was relaxing and enjoyable!



Blessings and Cheers!

Dear Winnie & Bob,

Once again we leave Sonoma and your beautiful home filled with gratitude for how fortunate we are to have had this opportunity. The physical surroundings of both Sonoma and your home are elegant and at the same time filled with warmth. You are so generous to open your home to us and also open your hearts in friendship.

The words that surround the daily experiences are connection and community. Each year it becomes more clear what a unique place Sonoma is. This was the best year yet!

The memories will linger…

With Heart,

Diane & Mike

The Delights of Staying at Chez Winnie

  • 5 of 5
A jewel in the heart of Sonoma nestled among roses and lavender. Evenings spent under the wisteria covered pergola, a fine local Chardonnay in hand, watching happy and content people strolling by on their way to the Plaza a block away. A piece of heaven on earth accentuated by the beauty of Chez Winnie and its wonderful and warm owners.

What a beautiful place to stay! The house is perfect- new everything, great kitchen and gardens. We walked to Sonoma center every day, ate and drank well. The vineyards are a short drive. We had one small problem and the owners took care of it immediately. We would highly recommend this place.
