Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is delightful! We had a great time at the Gate House and no problems, thanks to all of your helpful instructions. The kitchen is a marvel. Really enjoyed cooking in such a wonderful space. You obviously enjoy food and wine and the good things in life. The view is very relaxing. Thank you for sharing your home with us!! We may try to come back in the summer to enjoy the pool and deck, although we did get to enjoy Thanksgiving Champagne on the deck!

Gorgeous, spacious, quiet, and great pool!

  • 5 of 5

The Gatehouse is a lovely place to call home while visiting in Glen Ellen/Sonoma County. Walking distance to downtown Glen Ellen, yet far away from the main road so you have peace and quiet.

Very comfortable beds, the master bathroom is modern and spacious. If you're a foodie, the kitchen is for you - very large and accommodating for making a fantastic meal. The pool and spa in the backyard are incredible, including the stunning views of Jack London State Park. This house has everything you and your guests need to have a comfortable stay.

I would definitely stay in this house again and highly recommend you consider this rental.

Barry was very professional, communicative, and walked me through questions so we felt right at home for the weekend. Thank you, we had a wonderful time!

Vacationing in my dream house

  • 5 of 5

Every year my group of college friends rents a house for New Years and we were very lucky to find this Glen Ellen home for New Years 2013. There were six adults and one two year old who loved all the toys in the kids room. The house has a cozy feeling and the decor is very upscale. Everyone enjoyed morning hot tub time with the gorgeous view. There are lots of great wineries nearby to visit and the local grocery store (a fantastic little market with a great selection) and restaurants are all within walking distance. The highlight of the house for me was the kitchen which is so well equipped that I felt tempted to stay forever! If you enjoy gorgeous views, cooking beautiful meals and relaxing this is the house for you!

An oasis in Glen Ellen

  • 5 of 5

One of the most positive VRBO experiences we have ever had. The home is nicely appointed with antiques, comfortable beds (as reported by all guests) and an impressive kitchen. The home is well laid out and spacious offering all of us ample room for reading/relaxing. The pool and decking area offer great post-winery tour relaxation. The back yard is very private and provide an impressive view flanked by 4 substantial redwoods. Glen Ellen makes for an excellent jump off point for wine country and has good restaurant selections and grocery store. We highly recommend this property and will definitely return for our next visit.

Bachelor Party Paradis

  • 5 of 5

Thank Barry for everything. My friends and I spent the weekend in Sonoma for our friend's Bachelor Party! The house was clean and has ample space for everyone. The kitchen was fantastic! The stand out was the amazing backyard and pool. We were able to relax and soak in the sun. Hope to come back soon!

Excellent, family-friendly accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the Gate House in April. The home was spacious with a layout perfect for two families with small children - bedrooms at both ends of the home meant the kids didn't disturb each other at night or nap time. The children also loved exploring fun toys in the kids room. It was a bit of a challenge keeping two little ones away from the pool and deck steps, but not really a problem for attentive parents. The pool was lovely (just barely warm enough to enjoy already in April), the kitchen was fabulous and the views were breath-taking. Loved being within walking distance of stores and restaurants in Glen Ellen (the Glen Ellen Star was a standout- fabulous food, great atmosphere)! We hope to return to wine country again soon and would certainly consider the Gate House again.
