|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Enjoy the peaceful beauty of this secluded 7 acre estate, only three miles from town, in the center of desirable Dry Creek Valley.
Panoramic views of Mt. St Helena and rolling vineyards grace the home and pool areas, with everything you could wish for from a perfect stay in the wine country. The pool with a sparkling spa, outdoor kitchen & BBQ, cozy seating areas, poolside lounging, areas to dine al fresco, and an outdoor fire pit for enjoying spectacular sunsets and star-studded nights. The ideal setting for a fine meal and a fine wine!
The main house has a master suite with a deck perfect for enjoying your morning coffee and the views, a private guest bedroom and a bunkroom. The one bedroom guest house rounds out the accommodations, making it a secluded enclave that sleeps between 8 to 10 people comfortably. The home includes a wide range of comforts, from lovely modern furnishings, a soothing fireplace, large flat screen, stereo system throughout, broadband and WiFi, a cook's kitchen and views that make you say 'ahhhh.'
If you decide to bring the children, there are wonderful amenities for the child in each of us - from a stand-alone children's play room, a play structure, foosball and ping pong tables, to a bocce ball court and acres in which to roam.
We had a wonderful weekend at this house in Dry Creek - and the house was even better than the pictures indicated! Very clean, beautiful furniture & artwork, and an incredible view. Loved how private it felt, and yet it was just minutes from great wineries. Pool and hot tub were simply perfect.
We had four different couples, and 2 toddlers in tow and there was plenty of room for everyone. There was also the added bonus of toys and trucks that the kids could play with...and even a little art studio with plenty to entertain the little ones. It really was the perfect retreat for our family. We couldn't have asked for a better place that could accommodate a relaxing place for the adults, and a fun spot for kids. Definitely recommend!!
We agree with the previously written reviews about this amazing property. At the risk of being redundant, in addition to the gracious interior accommodations, the outdoor amenities were special, from the beautiful pristine pool and hot tub, to the lovely lounging areas to the bocci court and play areas for children all spread out surrounding this house. There were seven of us ranging in age between 31 and 80 "something" and we all felt perfectly comfortable. This was a setting that provided a wonderful opportunity for quality family time with the best of food and wine in total luxury and comfort. We enjoyed every moment from the early June sunrises and distant rooster's call to the late sunsets and gazing at the stars. We thank Chris for his responsive communications and to Mimi who was so accommodating upon our arrival. We hope to see Mimi AGAIN!
Our Minnesota wine purchasing group really enjoyed this house as our home while wine tasting through to the Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and the Calistoga winery areas. This home is on the hillside off the valley in a very secluded area yet close to the wineries and 5-10 minutes from the fantastic little town of Healdsburg.
In addition to enjoying the wineries in the area, our group enjoys gourmet cooking and this house has a large kitchen well stocked with more dishes, pots, pans, bowls, utensils, and spices than you will ever need and has great appliances too. In addition to having an indoor kitchen, there is a large outdoor kitchen with stainless cabinets, grill, and sink.
After the meal is prepared, you can choose many places to sit down for dinner, both inside and out, while listening to the whole home sound system speakers in the living rooms, kitchen, and outdoor spaces.
To work off the meal, our group enjoyed the lit bocce court for a little competitive activity, the outdoor gas fed rock fire pit, and the hot-tub under the stars! All this set around a beautiful pool, large yard patios and fabulous gardens with a spectacular view of the valley.
The bedrooms are large and spacious with very comfortable beds. My wife and I used the guest house below the parking garage which has a large bedroom with a cozy fireplace, a sitting room and a large bathroom; this is a very nice guest house! The bathrooms throughout the house are all very bright and comfortable with many extra linens and towels plus more around the pool and hot tub.
The website description and pictures do not do this house justice; it is more spacious, comfortable, and modern in person. The owners have left a photo album including pictures of the house over the years, they have kept the house very fresh, modern, and new feeling.
In addition to the home, both the owner and the property manager were great to work with! If you are looking for a spectacular wine country home in the middle of the best wineries in the world, this is the home!
Stayed for five nights with two other couples (6 total adults) and space worked out perfectly for us -- including the under garage house which was very cozy. The location of the house is ideal, close enough to town yet far enough away to be up in the hills. Property was extremely well maintained and gorgeous. Kitchen was very well equipped; cozy bedding; interior spaces, while not huge, provided lots of space to spread out and not be on top of each other which is high on my priority list when renting with a group. Views were spectacular, with wonderful outdoor spaces. We spent a lot of time lounging around the pool (not heated as it was October) on extremely comfortable high end outdoor furniture. But the best part was the hot tub that worked flawlessly! Walks in the neighborhood provided great views and friendly neighbors (house is secluded and not on top of neighbors). Convenient to wineries, the coast, and Armstrong Woods. Great communication between owner who answered inquiries promptly. I have rented homes all over the world and would put this as a keeper. Hope to be back.
My husband and I were fortunate enough to find Dry Creek Moderna in Healdsburg for an eight day stay the week of our son,s wedding in mid September. It worked perfectly for
us and for the several different rotations of friends and family who came to stay with us over the course of that week. everything was exactly as advertised and even better! The house lacked for nothing, It was immaculate. The owner and rental agents were extremely accommodating, The location was perfect, only a few miles from downtown Healdsburg, about a ten minute drive, which made it very convenient for trips back and forth, much more so than another very similar property we looked at which was not much further by distance, but which took forever to access because of back roads. Yet, despite it's convenience, because of the expansive property, we felt like we were miles from anything at the Dry Creek home. so many entertainment opportunities were available at the house, we didn't have enough time, even with eight days,
to make use of them all. The house is perfect for a large family (we will utilize it again) or for several couples wanting to enjoy time in Sonoma County. Kudos to the owner for such a lovely place and for sharing it with others!!
Pictures cannot do justice to this amazing property. We were blown away with the incredible views, landscaping, architecture, attention to detail, and even the artwork was top-notch.
We did not want to leave (even for dinner in town, which is conveniently only 5 minutes away), and will definitely be back.
