About The Owner
I live about 4 miles away and am ready to help you with any activity or pursuit you may wish to pursue. I enjoy all the fruits of Alexander Valley and Northern California and know many local winemakers, wine growers. I also bicycle, hike, love fine dining and can help you with any local activity. Sonoma County bristles with opportunity from the very active to just sitting on the deck looking at the vineyards and birds. I am available at your request for any activity or issue you may have with your accommodations. I am equally happy to make myself scarce so you can enjoy the privacy this country home offers.

Guestbook comments from the owner
I stayed here with a group of 9 friends- all in our late 20s- most of whom flew in from NYC for a weekend getaway in wine country. We had the most wonderful weekend and can't say enough about this great house and amazing location! The property is literally surrounded by vineyards, and the sunset from the large backyard, complete with grazing horses in the field next to the house, was gorgeous! The backyard has a couple of tables which were perfect for eating outside, and several hummingbird feeders which were quite the hotspot for hummingbirds all weekend. There is also a hot tub just outside the house, which was so much fun for me and my girlfriends at the end of the day while our boyfriends played darts next to us. The location of the home is wonderful. So many vineyards within walking distances, and great ones a short car ride away. The Jimtown Store, a really cute old-fashioned general store, is just up the road, and you can eat breakfast or lunch there or order lunch boxes ahead of time for a day of wine tasting. The interior of the house was just what we needed. The beds were comfortable, and best of all was the really large, open kitchen complete with large dining table. We had a great time eating and playing board games at night. This house is really the perfect place for a large group looking for a fun, relaxing weekend or week together. Dell, the homeowner, was so easy to work with and had great suggestions for us. When we arrived, the house was full of fresh flowers, plus a bottle of wine for us and a bowl of apples to feed the horses with! We will definitely be coming back next year! Truly an idyllic wine country experience.
