Located in quiet residential neighborhood in Sonoma, our 1834 sq ft comfortable home awaits your arrival. Available May through October, the most pleasant time of the year, this home is ideal for enjoying all that Sonoma and the greater San Francisco Bay Area has to offer. Return home in the evening to enjoy wine and cheese, bbq-ing on the back patio and rest on comfortable furniture.
The weather and setting in Sonoma is wonderful all year, but especially in the summer 6 months being offered to our guests. The natural beauty of Northern California is maybe unmatched and there is probably no more charming city in the world than San Francisco. Enjoy the Bay Area and come back to Sonoma and relax in the heart of the wine country.

Recently retired, we (Peter and Kathleen Dawson) came to Sonoma so we could be close to family, especially our two grandchildren. We wish to be involved with their lives and activities while they grow up. We have many family and friends in the Bay Area. We are respectively a retired music teacher and school psychologist. We live an active lifestyle including running, biking, and Zumba.
Carlos and Jenna, WineINN and DineINN purchased this house in 2011
We (Peter and Kathleen Dawson) chose to buy a home in Sonoma because of its location, beauty and closeness to family and friends. We did not initially consider renting it while we returned to rural New York State during the summer months where the rest of our family and friends are (and our original home). Then we started thinking that maybe we should share such a nice place with others while we are not here. Then local friends who are experienced Innkeepers and currently run WineINN and DineINN Tour/Shuttle approached us and offered to manage the home as a vacation rental while we are gone. Knowing our guests would be in good hands prompted us to offer our home for the 6 months when we are not here.
