Gloriously situated in the heart of wine country, this two bedroom, two bathroom cottage is the guest house of Calluna Vineyards. A private location set amidst our vineyards with a spectacular view all around you. Each bedroom (one king size bed, one queen) has its own private bathroom, with a kitchen and living area in between the two. The covered deck, with comfy rocking chairs, outside the living area invites you to enjoy an afternoon glass of wine while watching the spectacular Sonoma sunsets. Off the deck is a private hot tub and a bocce ball court for your enjoyment.
This is the perfect location to have as your home base while you explore the wonderful surrounding wine country. Easy to get to many different vineyards and wineries, and about 5 miles from the great restaurants of Healdsburg. Read more about Calluna Vineyards on our website and then schedule a complimentary tasting with the winemaker while he shows you around the vineyard.

I left the NY area in 2001 to pursue my interest in winemaking. After graduating from Fresno State's Enology and Viticulture program, I worked in Bordeaux. Then, in 2004, I found the 80 acres parcel that would become Calluna. From bare land, I planted 12 acres of Bordeaux varietals as well as oversaw the building of our house and the guest house. Calluna's first vintage of wine was 2007.
The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2006
With this guest house, you have situated yourself in the middle of premium vineyards on a hillside over looking the Russian River valley. Feel free to walk the entire property. Our dog Molly will probably join you.
I was looking for a nice place in Napa, preferably around Rutherford for a couple of nights for two couples.
Nothing interesting in Napa - places with one queen, and a pair of bunk beds, so I decided to settle on this place.
This was NOT settling for anything.
The setting was gorgeous. The pictures do not do it justice.
It was beautiful, tranquil, and so very comfortable.
Sitting in the awesome tub overlooking the vines, and the valley was really wonderful.
Sarah made sure that everything was ready for us.
David showed us around, and then served up a delicious tasting of their wines.
Molly, the vineyard dog, was sweet as can be.
There are two bedroom suites on opposite sides of the living room, making it an excellent place for two couples.
I really hope that we can get back again soon, and stay longer.
I have used VRBO for countless vacations in Sonoma County over the past 5 years. This is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review because it is the first time the rental property has been much more impressive in person than the pictures/description online (... although the reverse has certainly happened!). There really is no way to capture the breathtaking views from this house in a picture - you must see it. The house itself is also much nicer than we expected - it's small but lovely, and considering the views, hot tub, bocce court, porch & grill outdoors, you won't want to stay inside anyway. In addition to the fabulous house & property, both the owners and property manager were delightful & professional. Due to extenuating circumstances with an ill friend, we needed to modify the dates we had originally booked in our signed contract. While they would have been well within their rights to not allow this, they were accommodating and understanding.
Finally, we were able to meet with the owners and taste their wine (Calluna Vineyards), which was a true highlight of the day. After a few disappointing tastings earlier in the day, we were blown away by both the wine and experience. David answered our novice questions with patience & kindness & Marla was so warm, she made us feel completely welcome.
I would highly recommend both staying at the property (especially for a romantic getaway!) and tasting the superb wine. We will definitely be back!
This home is amazingly beautiful and very well appointed. Situated looking over vinyards and the whole Sonoma Valley, it invites a glass of wine on the patio while cooking ribeyes on the grill. It is much better than the pictures on the VRBO website show and we will definitely be returning.
We had a great time at the Calluna cottage. It's located within the beautiful Calluna Vineyards...close enough to wineries, restaurants & shops just down the hill, yet far enough away to relax and enjoy the quiet and peacefulness of the countryside.
The proprietors were wonderful hosts and very accommodating. We enjoyed talking with them and learning a bit about wine making as well!
We would definitely recommend the cottage to others and plan to stay again in the future!
My fiancé and I were the first guests here and we had an amazing time from start to finish. We were greeted immediately with a bottle of wine from the surrounding vineyard, and later treated to a full tasting of Calluna's wines at the owner's house nearby.
Great views, ample space for up to 4 people, we loved the hot tub and spacious deck to sit in the afternoon and watch the sunset. Close to tons of vineyards, excellent location but very secluded at the same time.
We would definitely stay here again!
