SECLUDED HOME AND GUEST COTTAGE NEAR SONOMA SQUARE

Sonoma Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Secluded 1 acre property with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms only 2 miles from Square

Welcome to The Fir & The Fig!

We are set on a private road 2 miles east of the Sonoma plaza and walking distance or a short bike ride to some of California's oldest and best wineries. Our location is in the heart of the wine country and only 40 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. We're on Sonoma's coveted east side so Napa is easily accessible in 15 minutes drive. You can start your day with a drive to Napa or just enjoy the laid back historic wineries all around you in Sonoma. We are uniquely positioned with wineries all around on old country roads so minimal traffic. This offers a unique opportunity to tour the area by foot or on bikes. There is a great article on our direct website along with a map with more details. Our favorite mode of transportation is cruising the bikes to a couple wineries en rout to the famous Sonoma plaza which offers an abundance of tasting rooms, 5 star restaurants and great markets. The plaza also hosts many great festivals throughout the summer and fall so you never know what you might roll up on.

Now that you know what's around us let's talk about the great property you would be enjoying when you're not out and about. We just finished major renovation in spring of 2013 so everything including the beds are brand new. We have a large hot tub just off the back deck and we recently added a large (20' x 12' x 48' deep) above ground pool that’s perfect for cooling off or sunbathing on a hot summer day. It's tucked behind our garage so feels very private but has a lovely view over the grounds and tree filled hillside. Please note that the pool is seasonal and taken down during the cooler months.

Property Features:

3 BR / 2 BA Main House (1 king & 2 queen beds)

2 BR / 1 BA Guest Cottage (1 cal king & 1 queen bed)

Game-Room with various games listed below

Gated 1 acre property with fence for privacy

Pool (20' x 12' x 48' deep) - above ground with lots of comfy recliner floats

We live in the Bay Area and fell in love with Sonoma's east side over the many years of renting homes. After a long search we finally found the place of our dreams here on Sonoma's east side. Looking forward to retiring here one day.

Chris purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

We love accessibility of this property from the Bay Area but yet how far away you actually feel. It's the perfect escape without the long travel time. We especially love the ability ride bikes or walk and enjoy nearby attractions without getting in our car.

Location, location, location! We love the secluded feel of our property while being such close proximity to so may great wineries and the Sonoma Square.

Family & Wedding Perfect

Family & Wedding Perfect
  • 5 of 5
This wedding was chosen for our daughter's wedding week. We had the Best Man, Maid of Honor, The Bride, Parents and Grand Kids, (All within the guidelines of Chris' numbers) stay at the house. It was so wonderful for us all to be able to spend time together and get together. BUT the great part of it was the HOME in which we stayed. Chris provided a beautiful home for us to stay in. We immediately felt at home. I didn't feel like I was in a rental, a hotel or anything. This property is everything that they say. Very easy to find, and perfect location. Very close to Gundlach and Sebastini Wineries and at the Napa end of Sonoma, so very easily accesible to all parts of the valley. We will definitely be renting this property again. If you want a little seperation from the kids this house is perfect. The property feels totally safe and the peacefulness makes you know you are away from the city. Enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Perfect stay at the Fir & Fig!

Perfect stay at the Fir & Fig!
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Fir & Fig house in March for my friend's bachelorette party. It was the perfect house for the 10 of us and Chris could not have been easier to work with. He was responsive and also provided helpful suggestions for our trip.

The house itself has been recently updated and the work that was put into it shows. The location is close to square and and easy drive to anywhere else in the area that we went. I highly recommend staying at the Fir & Fig and cannot wait to come back again.

My only suggestion would be to have a second key available.

Thank you again, we loved staying at the Fir & Fig!

Great house and a very accommodating host!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at The Fir and Fig! We had a large group of friends, and this was the only house near downtown Sonoma that had 5 bedrooms. The interior was recently remodeled, with high end appliances and high tech sound and entertainment system. The house was clean and well kept.

The homeowner, Chris, was very communicative and quick to respond to questions in the booking process. He even stopped by personally on our first day and brought out his ping pong table and corn hole game. It was a very nice personal touch.

We found the best part of the house to be the location. It's close (~1.5 miles) from Sonoma square, and an easy drive / bicycle ride. We rented bikes per Chris' recommendation and were able to bike to several wineries.

I definitely would recommend this house and its homeowner to anyone looking for a place in Sonoma!

Awesome Place!!!

  • 5 of 5
This home is absolutely beautiful. The main house is fully renovated with beautiful hard wood floors and comfy beds. The views are fantastic, and after spending 3 hectic days in the city, this was the most relaxing part of our vacation. Close to wineries and Sonoma Square - one of the best vacations of my life.
I've already referred this to 2 of my friends at work, who are making plans to rent this. I can't wait to go back!

Family weekend - couldn't ask for a better spot!

Family weekend - couldn't ask for a better spot!
  • 5 of 5
Wow! This home was everything and more we could have hoped for. We were 2 couples in 30s (brother/sister + sig. others) plus aunt/uncle in late 60s. All of us could not stop talking on Monday about how great the weekend had been, and the house we stayed in was a huge part of it.

The good -
- beds were super comfy along with all other furniture
- open kitchen layout was awesome! we enjoyed breakfasts and a dinner here family-style
- outdoor seating areas are plentiful (breakfast in the sun!)
- you know there's a hottub, right....
- The walk to Gundlach Bundschu winery --> so beautiful to even walk there, and so convenient to walk home!
- We rented bikes to go to Bartholemew & Buena Vista winery: great way to spend the day
- Owner was very responsive for any questions we had (regarding bike rental)
- so quiet, so peaceful, so beautiful, so comfortable

The bad -
- we couldn't get the TV remote to work (but never contacted the owner to ask about it either...) -- but we very much enjoyed the built-in stereos around the house and the patio
- could have used a potato masher and peeler in the kitchen (but they had everything else we needed for 4 big meals)
- .....not much else...!

Absolutely recommend for: friends (5 total bedrooms!), family (fenced in yard so the kids are safe!), bachelor/bachelorette weekends, birthdays
