We live in San Francisco and this is our second home. Our son keeps us in SF most of the time, so we decided to rent out or second home from time to time.

It is very peaceful and an easy freeway drive from San Francisco, much easier to get to than Napa.
The property abuts federal forest land and is very serene and peaceful. You are on top of the world. Morning you can wake to find yourself above the clouds in the valley below.
"Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and our friends. It was breathtakingly amazing! I loved waking up each morning to the gorgeous view! It was also very peaceful, ... it was just what we needed. It was definitely an experience that we were all so happy to have, and I felt so lucky to have found you and your home! ... we had a private yoga instructor come in from Ukiah to give us a beautiful morning flow. It was perfect!"
A terrific place with amazing views. Was looking for a tranquil, secluded accommodation to relax and get away from it all and this place did not disappoint. Also, as we are new to the area, this place provided a good base to explore the surrounding towns and wineries. Would recommend to those who are looking for a quiet and peaceful getaway.
What an amazingly beautiful place. The modern, clean feeling of this house is a perfect fit for the serene setting. The most stars I have ever seen at night; a beautiful majestic view. I loved how close you feel to the outdoors and nature here. We loved every minute and were able to re-connect and ground ourselves very quickly. We spent the days touring wineries but made sure we were back on the mountain for the amazing sunsets:)
Definitely going back and would HIGHLY recommend this unique getaway spot.
The drive to the property from Healdsburg was equally as exciting as the "prize" at the top of the mountain. Located at the top of the switchbacks, we were delighted to find this super clean and modern home. Location is not a problem with the help of a GPS and a sense of adventure. We made daily trips to Sonoma Coast, Redwood forests, Dry Creek area, and Healdsburg for (best) dinner options. The 360 degree views make you feel like your truly on top of the world. Large ground to ceiling glass windows and doors enhance the views from every room. Kitchen was well stocked. Recommend arriving to house just prior to sunset so you can grab a glass of wine and enjoy the sunset. Would be fantastic for stargazing but the full moon was shining bright during our stay. Very peaceful surroundings. Would love to return for another visit.
We spent the weekend here and didn't want to leave. The views are breathtaking and can be enjoyed from every room of the house - sunsets were extraordinary. The hilltop setting means you can see it all and the privacy creates a contemplative environs. The lack of neighbors resulted in fantastic star gazing after dark!
The house has a great floor plan where people can comfortably gather together or break off into small groups. House flow allows for easy indoor and outdoor living. We were there on a hot summer weekend, but kept discussing how cozy it would be on a cold day to crank up the radiant floor heating and enjoy the fire.
The house was perfectly appointed with everything we needed for our stay. Kitchen was stocked with necessary tools (we cooked dinner every night) and plenty of towels.
I've often had to nudge owners to give instructions for entering the house. This owner sent me the info and answered every question immediately. Major points for owner being proactive, responsive and thorough.
This place is definitely off the beaten path, which contributes to the peaceful getaway experience. The view is *fantastic*, and you can see a ton of stars at night. The owner was very helpful in recommending things to do (we rented a boat on Clear Lake and hit a couple of wineries).
Hit a grocery store on the way in, and you should be all set. The kitchen was a little skimpy on cooking tools depending on how fancy you want to get, but we improvised and it worked out fine. Decor is nice, and everyone had plenty of room to sprawl out.
We traveled with two 1 year olds and 5 adults. The house and decor are minimalist in style perfect as it really shows off the amazing views. Getting to the property was a bit of an issue as the signs to the house number near the gate were not visible when we arrived (knocked over) but we placed it up for our other party to find more easily. We enjoyed are stay quite a bit but there were some missing amenities. Could not find beach towels, some kitchen items but nothing too extensive. All and all it was a very nice stay and the assistance from the owner in setting up wine tastings was great!
There was an amazing pizza place about 20 minutes away!
