40 ACRES 5,000 SQUARE FT, $975/NT SLEEPS 10-14 POOL, VINEYARD, VIEWS !

Monterey Estate Rental Photos and Description

Estate, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-14)

Chalone Pinnacles House is a 40 Acre 5,000 Square foot estate surrounded by Chalone Vineyards. This is the location of many famous Chalone stock holder parties. 3 wineries are within 5 minutes and 7 more within 20.

Perfect for weddings.

The house is perfect for 5 couples or 3 families of four. The views are stunning from nearly every room, deck, patio, pool, and jacuzzi.

There is also spectacular hiking at Pinnacles National Monument. We are 5 minutes from the western entrance. Pinnacles is very different with unusual talus caves and streams. You will probably see California condors. 5 hikes are available. Two easy and three pretty strenuous.

Hang by the pool in the sun. No fog up here at 1500 feet. The star gazing is spectacular. We are a 15 minute drive off of Highway 101. Super quiet.

There are 8 to 10 15 minutes away that can do take out.

Tons of activities. Super Setting. Historic California Property.

I can not believe we were lucky enough to buy this beautiful estate.

HOUSE DETAILS: Three levels. Upper, Middle, and Lower

The UPPER level has 2 big bedrooms (one king one queen) with gorgeous views and very private decks with a large bathroom between them.

The MIDDLE level has the entry, large kitchen, dinning room, pantry, and 2 large bedrooms (kings) with large bath in between. These rooms all have beautiful views. The bedrooms also have nice private patios with chaise lounges. There is also a bedroom (twins) with nearby bath. This room is the only room in the house with no view. Short straw gets this room. There is a huge patio off of the dining room with lots of room and jaw dropping views.

The LOWER level has the living room, den, large bath, half bath, wine cellar, and pool/media room. There is a fold outs in the pool room and one in the den to take the sleeping capacity from 10 to 14. This level opens up to the pool, the large patio around the pool, and the jacuzzi. All with stunning views.

My name is Bert Fornaciari. My wonderful wife Linda and my son Jack, and daughter Carol are delighted to be fortunate enough to

let you enjoy Chalone Pinnacles House. We live in Portola Valley, California

Bert purchased this estate in 2012

This is a one of a kind property. It was built by the CEO of Chalone Wine Group. The first high end winery to go public. The builder of this house built up Chalone Winery then expanded the legacy of great wines with the acquisitions of: Accacia, Edna Valley, Carmenet, and Canoe Ridge. Later he sold Chalone Wine Group to Diageo a public premium beverage company that also owns Tanqueray, Dom Perignon, Cuervo and many other brands

Gorgeous Views, Amazing Stars, Great Food, Quality wine selection. Super nice staff. This is my third vrbo property and I plan to make it be very high end but at a price many can afford.

amazing times at Chalone

  • 5 of 5
I just realized that I never posted review of Chalone. We stayed their twice. The first time was in 2012 and we got married there. It was a very happy weekend, we had about 100 guests, many stayed at the house/ in Soledad or camped outside on the property. We had amazing times under beautiful stars, in the pool and the hot tub. The evening after wedding we drove to Pinnacles to do a short hike and it was a wonderful ending to the wonderful weekend. The house itself is great - large, beautiful, comfortable. It can get hot in the summer but opening balconies really helps. We came back the following year for our one year anniversary with a much smaller group and had a wonderful time again although it did get hot that weekend so being able to jump into the pool was fantastic. A very beautiful place and Bert is just really responsive and a wonderful host. I do hope to be back .

Absolutely breathtaking...but hot

  • 4 of 5
The house is even more beautiful in person than the pictures show. It was the perfect location for a surprise birthday weekend with 10 friends. The kitchen is well stocked with 2 dishwashers, 2 fridges and all the pots, pans, plates, glasses, etc. you could ever need. Stargazing from the hot tub over the vineyard was a big highlight. The views of the vineyard are breathtaking -- especially at sunset. There is so much to do at the house that we didn't leave the whole weekend. Bert (owner) is awesome, answered all of my questions promptly and let us have late check out on Sunday so we could enjoy the pool a little more. One downside is that it does get very hot during the day and without AC, you need to open doors/windows. Only the front door has a screen so opening any others results in lots of flies and other insects in the house. Even with all of the fans, it was far too hot to close the doors. Fly swatters were necessary! The pool was also a little too warm to be refreshing during the day when the temp was at a peak. If it were cooler it would offer more refuge from the heat of the house. The house and scenery are so beautiful that they make anything worth it!

Owner's Response: Yes it can get hot sometimes. We have air coolers in each of the bedrooms. The house really cools down if you open the screened windows on the third floor and also open the screened front door and the dinning room doors.

Great idea on adding screens to these doors. We will add screens by 8/15/14

Good tip on the pool temp. It is set to 82 which is what most guests want for the winter, spring, and fall. We will change the pool temp to 77 for summer. If you want the temp changed just call me I will have my guy there in 45 minutes.

Shouldn't need fly swatters but we will have a few on hand just in case.

Thanks for your feedback, and glad you really enjoyed Chalone !

Perfect for a girls/bachelorette weekend! You can't beat the view....or the house.

The house is even more beautiful than the pictures show. It was the perfect location for our girls/bachelorette weekend (12 of us slept very comfortably). We made delicious family-style dinners and ate at the big dining room table. The kitchen is beautifully appointed with pots, pans, silverware, serving trays, all the basics. We lounged by the pool, marveling at the view of the vineyards and played water volleyball. S'mores on the fire pit and star gazing from the hot tub. We also did a fantastic hike at the Pinnacles National Park which is 5 min from the house. The "condor crag" hike was totally manageable and you go up so high the condors are actually flying right above you. Bert (owner) is awesome, answered all of our questions and let us have late check out on Sunday so we could enjoy the pool a little more. DEFINITELY book Chalone house, it's an awesome experience.

Family reunion & celebration

We had a fantastic time here last summer. The house is beautiful and clean, the pool is heated and so refreshing, and the views are stunning. The stars at night is just magical. Bert and Linda were wonderful to work with, they responded to emails and questions right away. Wish we could've stayed longer.

We rented this house for a family Christmas. It is accurately described and photographed. The house is architecturally stunning and has great bedrooms with good bedding & linens, towels and blankets. Good water pressure, lots of hot water. Nice tile surfaces in kitchen and bathrooms. Gorgeous hot tub/pool setting. Beautiful landscaping. Lovely fruit & olive trees and vineyards. Great yard to fly kites or have a helicoptor land which we engaged to tour the Pinnacles and Big Sur! We had a special dinner and sat 12 comfortably at the dining table. Being near the Pinnacles is a huge plus - spectacular national monument. The estate is in the wine country hills so somewhat remote - about a 20 minute drive from town on relatively narrow but well-maintained road toward West Pinnacles, then on sandy road to estate. This house handles a lot of people well. Enjoyed the Chalone wines! Bert, the owner, was very helpful and answered email immediately. It should be noted that this house does not have central air or heat! I'm sure it's fine at 1800 feet most seasons but in winter it was necessary to depend on the wood burning stoves. Wood needed to be replenished twice during our stay, which Bert arranged after we emailed him. After we got the house heated up, we were able to maintain the heat pretty well but it did require attentiveness to stoking. We did use the maid services once and Elvira was great. This home is probably 30 years old and needs a few things refreshed to achieve "high-end" status but the setting is so gorgeous and Bert so attentive to feedback, that I know that as a new owner, he'll achieve this mark in no time. It'd be nice to have a guest book as I'm sure people will come from all over the world.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the fantastic feedback ! Now when you rent Chalone in the winter the fire in the main house is already lit. Also each bedroom fire is already laid so you can more easily have romantic fires in the bedrooms (or use the convenient space heaters in the bedrooms). We have also tripled the amount of wood storage at the front door. Enjoy !

Heaven!

Just returned from a long weekend at the Chalone house and am homesick for Chalone! My friends and I had an amazing time, hiking in Pinnacles Park, bike rides around the property, lounging by the pool or sitting in front of the fire. We will definitly be returning! Bert was extremely helpful and available to answers any questions about the house. I couldn't recommend this house more, perfect for entertaining a large group.
