WINE COUNTRY BLISS OUT!

Glen Ellen Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

Romance with nature at your own 12-acre wine country retreat! Enjoy sunset views, peace, and the beauty of the wine country all on your own private, country get-away! We call it Cinque Terre.We are on the mountain that divides Sonoma and Napa counties yet 15 minutes to Hwy 12 with wine tasting rooms, fine dining and gourmet grocery store.

This nature-lovers getaway is ideal for a couple (or maximum of four) and features separate 'casitas.' Each room (Kitchen, Bed House, Barn, Bath House) is separate, but only steps away from each other. The Bed House with a king-size bed and full bath has a private deck entrance to the hot tub and frech doors and plate-glass window viewing the Valley of the Moon. The Barn House has a queen bed plus sleeping loft and opens to beautiful forest views with a private stone staircase to the hot tub.

The Cucina, or kitchen house, hosts all-around windows with a full kitchen and living area featuring folk art, a wood stove, big screen TV and stunning sunset and forest views. The Bath House is a separate full bathroom with a clawfoot tub, forest views, and outdoor shower.

Several garden terraces for lounging. Star gaze on the 250 ft. deck at the Tin Lodge or stroll along the rolling trails. This is all private, just for you!

BONUS! Free VIP Tasting voucher to our guests for Benziger Winery in Glen Ellen.

Cinque Terre offers you complete solitude and communion with nature, with all the amenities of a uniquely original hideaway featuring decks, gardens, stone steps and patios, hot tub, full indoor kitchen, indoor wood stove, separate bath house, authentic Sioux tipi, outdoor gas grill, washer/dryer, ceiling fans, Satellite TV/VCR/CD/stereo, high speed internet, full privacy, sunset views, birdwatching, star gazing, and walking trails. All linens, kitchen utensils, and hand-made soaps included.

The property is only occupied by one guest/rental at a time, so privacy and solitude are guaranteed. We are located above Glen Ellen in the heart of the wine country in Sonoma County, near the Napa Border, 15 minutes up the mountain road.

Pets are always welcome to Cinque Terre, but our retreat is strictly reserved for non smokers.

Cinque Terre was founded by the Smiling Eyes Tribe, a hybrid group with big hearts and open minds. Caretakers, Maurine and Daniel, invite you to come visit this special place.

Maurine Killough purchased this chateau / country house in 2000

Very unique and unconventional experience. A perfect blending between nature and comforts. Folk art, hot tub, separate casitas, completely equipped kitchen, satellite TV and internet.

There is a cleansing energy about the place. so peaceful and in connection with nature. feels far away from urban life.

Perfect, Rustic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I'm so glad we chose this as our vacation rental this last weekend while visiting the Sonoma/Napa area. It was truly the perfect place to unwind and spend time with our friends after fun-filled days of visiting wineries. The accommodations are rustic and blend in beautifully with nature. At the same time it was clean and had all the amenities you would need (T.V., WiFi, etc.) We are already talking about this being our "place" when we visit the area. Although a bit isolated from the surrounding towns, the drive up the mountain provided some spectacular views and it wasn't too far to get any attraction you would want to see in the area. Very excellent vacation, thank you Smiling Tribe!

A little bit of Heaven!

We enjoyed our little escape from reality during our stay in the Wine Country! It was a "back to nature" time coupled with little cabins filled with character and cheer!

Rustic Getaway at its Finest

  • 5 of 5
This property is a quintessential California 'mountain' property--natural setting, amazing views, close to world-renowned viticulture areas. My fiance and I (plus our pack of dogs) spent a relaxing weekend there and will most likely return at some point. Although it feels remote, it is very close to popular wineries and accompanying towns. It has everything you need in the kitchen, just bring food and any spices / condiments. The weather was cool and damp during our stay, which meant we got great use of the wood-burning stove in the cucina house and the space heaters did the trick in the other rooms. It was a little tricky to only have 40 gallons of hot water for the 2 bathrooms, but not a huge deal since the hot tub was much more appealing than the bath. The layout is very cool--it gives you total privacy in each respective building, but also the room to be together when you want to. The finish, sinks, decorations, and homemade soaps (and don't forget the teepee) give this place so much character. Our dogs had so much fun running around, smelling the natural scents, and laying by the fire. We will definitely stay here again next time we want to do a weekend in Napa/Sonoma with our dogs. (Also, the stone floors, simple layout, and cleanliness means that if you don't have pets, there is no odor or anything to worry about.) We definitely felt 'at home' at Cinque Terra.

Cozy cabins on a rainy weekend

  • 5 of 5
It was torrential rain but we still managed to have a very lovely time at Cinque Terre! It was quite a novelty having to put on wellington boots and a raincoat to get to the bedrooms and bathroom but actually, it's all part of the charm of the place. Very cozy, clean, well equipped and nicely decorated. The owners knew it was going to be cold so gave us extra heaters and plenty of firewood. Would love to go again in the summer!

Bliss Out Indeed!

  • 5 of 5
I almost don't want to write this review. Selfishly I'd like to keep this place a secret, so I can come here as often as I like!

My friend and I came here for a weekend of relaxing, wine tasting, hiking and various forms of self indulgence. Cinque Terre fit the bill on all fronts. The property was exactly as described, I'd call it cozy comfort in a rustic setting. The property is utterly charming, you can tell that they've put a lot of care and personal touches in to the space. The owners could not have been more helpful and accomodating. They promptly answered all our questions and provided clear, concise instructions.

The space would be perfect for two couples, or a group of friends who don't mind sharing beds. The property has 3 large beds (one is a loft in the bed house) and you could really sleep six comfortably, though I believe there is an additional fee if you go above four guests. The outdoor hottub was perfection, you can sit under the trees in the warm water and watch the stars. One night we had a little frog friend come perch on the edge of the hottub and sing us his song, it was pretty awesome!

It's a bit of a drive up and down the hill to get places, but really not too bad. Still, you're not going to want to be going back and forth in to town a lot, so I'd highly recommend this place for those seeking a bit of peace and quiet in a place that truly feels like a retreat.
