Kenwood House Rental Photos and Description

Welcome!

The Ladder House is an elegant wine country get away located in the lovely village of Kenwood. In the midst of Sonoma Valley wine country, you are at the center of it all. A short drive from San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area, there are more than fifteen vineyards / tasting rooms within walking distance (~ 1 mile) of our little cottage and another twenty plus wineries within biking distance (~3-5 miles). If you are coming for the wine, you have picked the right location. Start by enjoying a complimentary bottle of Mayo Family Wine the day you arrive. You're likely to want to visit the local tasting rooms and buy some more once you have tried it. They are our local favorite. See the activities page on our website for more on the local wineries and other activities.

An Adventure: Have more than just wine on your mind? Sonoma Valley is alive with activities and places to go. Visit nearby Morton’s Warm Springs for a swim and picnic by the creek, spend the day out on the coast and have dinner with a view of the ocean, take a bike ride and enjoy the picturesque local scenery or go for a hike in nearby Jack London park or Sugarloaf Ridge park. Sugarloaf is also home to the Robert Ferguson Observatory where you can spend an evening star gazing. Hike Mount Baldwin, enjoy the majestic views of Northern California and spy Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day. Sonoma Square is just a 15 minute drive and you can usually find a major event going on each weekend. We have put together a book of activities which you can enjoy while staying at our peaceful cottage with each activity rated by amount of time required. From a two hour jaunt to day long adventures, we hope you will find several activities to enjoy.

Dining: There are several great restaurants in Kenwood, all providing a great meal and ambiance. Slightly farther away in Glen Ellen (5 min drive) are additional establishments offering a great variety of offerings, all top shelf. Or, venture a little farther south to Sonoma or north to Santa Rosa for yet more options.

Long overdue review! We took our daughter and boyfriend for a week to introduce them to wine country, our fourth visit to the area. The house was very clean and had everything that is in the description. The back deck was great for breakfast and dinner, and the hot tub was an everyday must. It is a quiet residential area, but only a short walk from several great wineries. The Mayo Reserve tasting room just down the street was a particular favorite that Rob had suggested. We traveled the whole Sonoma valley and Napa valley each day, but it was great to come back here to unwind and have a bottle of our latest favorite find. This is the third house we have rented in the Sonoma area and I would highly recommend it.

Great for a Wine Weekend

  • 4 of 5
We rented this property to participate in a Gran Fondo event in Santa Rosa. Having stayed in Santa Rosa before, we were looking for something a little quieter and decided to give this rental a try. The house is decently set up but as one other reviewer mentioned the bathrooms are smaller. One is located directly outside the bedrooms and the other by the kitchen. So if you were two couples sharing, you would likely also end up sharing the bathroom by the bedrooms. It was only us, so no issue. Beds were firm, lots of nice cosy blankets. The kitchen equipment for us was a bit of a disappointment - the pots, pans etc were at a minimum. Set up much more for if you were grabbing a quick brekkie and heading off wine tasting, then headed back for a glass of vino at night. We like to shop local and cook in, so were hoping for a better equipped kitchen. Upon arrival we noticed the dishwasher was not working and it took several emails and texts to Rob to have it fixed. I guess people out wine tasting all day long could make due without a functioning dishwasher but having booked a five night stay, I felt it was a bit much to expect us to hand wash the whole time. The kitchen walks out to a lovely large back deck which we enjoyed sitting out on in the evenings. Unfortunately the hot tub was not working. The water level was left so low the pump had stopped functioning. My hubby filled the tub and tried to get it working and after several emails and texts to Rob it still did not function. I felt for a five night stay it would have been nice if someone could have come over and look at it to get it going properly instead of my hubby working on it.
So in general we liked the property but were disappointed with the lack of response by the owner when things did not work. Have come to the conclusion that this is a great property to rent for a wine tasting weekend and get great recommends for wineries and eateries etc.. For us maybe not the best choice for a longer stay that did not centre around wine tasting.

Quaint, Quiet, and Tasteful

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Cypress House for 3 nights for a Sonoma wedding weekend. The house is situated at the end of a quiet street in Kenwood, and was walking distance to many wineries as advertised. It was a wonderful stay and I would recommend this house to small groups of friends and family.

Harvest season

  • 4 of 5
We had a great stay. So many activities during harvest season made it impossible to sit still. The home was located in a perfect spot for Sonoma Valley wine experiences. The beds were comfortable and the hot tub was a bonus. The bathrooms are separate from the bedrooms and small, so plan accordingly. The property owner was responsive and helpful.

A Gem!

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect property for two couples. The home itself is very clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. It sits on a generous sized lot in a park-like setting with a huge deck and hot tub in the backyard. Very quiet, peaceful, and relaxing. The location of the home is perfect as well-- a stone's throw away from many fantastic wineries. I highly recommend this property for anyone who wants the feeling of a home away from home.

Wonderful Weekend!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for a weekend wedding along with my brother-in-law and sister-in law. Perfect get-away!! The property was clean, comfortable with all of the amentities. The movie selection, Netflix option and amazing music selection made the weekend even more fun. The owner left a beautiful bottle of wine for us to enjoy plus a full binder of instruction and discount cards for a few of the wineries. It is a beautiful setting, with hot tub and pretty landscape. A weekend was simply too short. Thank you for allowing us the privelge to stay in your beautiful home. We will certainly be back.
