About The Owner

I originally grew up in this home some five miles away, before it was moved from my family's Walnut Orchard to its current location. One of the oldest homes in Contra Costa County.

Why The Owner chose Walnut Creek

A perfect family environment with a children's playroom inside and an Alice in Wonderland-theme for play areas throughout the gardens.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Truly incomparable gardens and natural beauty await those who stay.

Lush and Enchanting Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The bridal party and I spent two nights here after my wedding and it was phenomenal. First off, Patty was a wonderful hostess; prompt replies, friendly, and above all accommodating. But the true star of the property was the gardens. Photos cannot capture this type of beauty... We arrived late at night and instantly had to explore. They go on and on, with meandering trails intersecting intimate seating alcoves and trickling fountains. Such a beautiful backyard retreat to relax after a stressful few months! The next morning we had a caterer prepare a brunch. It was a perfect day playing croquet and bocce on the large lawn while feasting on the patio. I cannot comment enough on how wonderful this home was, but what truly made it special was that our dog could be there too!! Patty, thank you for letting us share your magical home and giving us these memories we will be sure to cherish for the rest of our lives!

Second Time As Wonderful As The First

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time my family of 6 has stayed at this property and we hope to return every year. We love this home! The house is spacious, interesting, and full of character. The gardens are perfect for my younger kids to explore and play and for my older kids to relax and be with the family. The owner is so sweet and my kids think of her as part of our family now. Love, love, love!

Family Reunion on the 4th of July

  • 5 of 5
I was elected by extended family to organize and host a small family reunion in this area over the 4th of July. There are a number of us who already live in the area, but we needed a place for those traveling to stay and a place for all of us to gather. My wife and I have used VRBO on a number of occasions in the past for vacationing and thought if we could find a big enough place that it just might work. When we found this place we stopped looking. It was perfect. The house itself was enough to convince us this was our spot, but then we toured the grounds and found them to be even more stunning. I can't verbally do justice to the place. Please look at the photos on the web site. Best of all was the superb care that the owners took to ensure that our needs were met. I won't go into details but we had a few special needs to set up for our event. The owners were totally accommodating. The icing on the cake was when we arrived to check in we found the place decorated in 4th of July red-white-and-blue. I totally got the feeling that the owners priority was us enjoying our stay. If for some reason I have occasion to do some similar event in the area I will not hesitate to use this site again.

Unique Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely beautiful! We had family traveling from all over the US for a family wedding and this house was the perfect solution for us to all stay together in one home. This home has so many large sitting areas (inside and outside too). It easily accommodates a large group. I highly recommend this home. It is truly more beautiful than the photos portray. Patty is very accommodating and kept in contact with us during our stay asking if there was anything we needed or anything she could do for us.
You can rent this home with confidence. Being from Wisconsin, we were not able to see the home before we booked it, so we were a little worried it wouldn't be what it claimed to be, but when we arrived, we were amazed with how beautiful the home and the gardens were. The owners are awesome and worked hard to make sure our stay was wonderful. And it was! We loved it. We are very sure you will love it too!

AMAZING!! You will LOVE it!!!

  • 5 of 5
I've been meaning to write this for a while, because this property deserves a stellar review!!
The women in my family (9 of us) get together every spring for a special getaway. We book a different place every year and this year was one of our absolute favorites!! Patty, the owner, is so warm and down to earth and accommodating! But in addition to Patty's charming personality, the property itself is truly special...a work of art. It is a whimsical combination that is both eclectic and elegant at the same time. I couldn't believe all of the attention to detail and the never ending beautiful little touches here and there throughout the home and the gardens. Patty used to be a stager and she was also a landscape designer as well, and it shows!! The gardens and grounds are stunning and every time we went for a stroll, we would find something new and different that we hadn't noticed before. The pictures don't do the property justice and I was a little worried when I booked it that it would be one of those places that looks better in pictures than it looks in person. NOT the case!! You will not be disappointed!! And I don't mean to just rave about the gardens, the house too is truly a gem. When we first walked in to the house, our jaws dropped and we were high fiving each other with pleasure and saying "YES!"
Book this beautiful country chateau and you will create a memory of a lifetime!!!

Prefect Place for Enchantment and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Our family from out of state came to see the Bay Area and catch up and this place was excellent. Patty was so accommodating to all of needs. I would definitely recommend staying here - the gardens are amazing. The ponies are cute. You will find a special touch every where you look.
Thank you, Patty for your hospitality and opening your home.
