My husband and I love to travel and stay in unique homes. When we were looking for a home to offer as a vacation rental we knew immediately this home would be perfect. There isn't another home like it, anywhere. It has a fantastic location in the center of the wine country, is very private and is surrounded by beautiful views and landscaping.

Michael Ray purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

We love Sebastopol. It's rural, but it's 15 minutes close to everything any big city has to offer and it's only an hour drive into San Francisco. People are friendly, open and accepting and the tasting rooms are relaxed and uncrowded.

This home is like no other home. When you drive through the front gate it gives you the feel of arriving at a castle. There is an open floor plan, great for a large or small family, with three bedrooms (king, king, queen, a den/bedroom with a full and a full futon in the large recreation room). You can barbecue out on the deck while dipping in and out of the hot tub ~ or talking to those inside watching TV on the flat screen.

Great location for exploring wine country

  • 5 of 5
Well located - our party of 7 was comfortably accommodated and the Castle made an excellent base from which we made day trips to Napa, Sonoma, Bodega Bay, Healdsburg, and kayaking on the Russian River. The host was extremely helpful and provided us with some great information about the area (and several complimentary vouchers for wine tastings at various local wineries). The Castle's unique design and surprise game room added to our adventure!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
The Castle House was the perfect place for our 3 generations (20's, 50's, and 80's) to stay for my nephew's wedding. Plenty of room for all, amazing scenery, and the game room was a great place for my sons and their cousins to hang out. Day trips to Bodega Bay and Healdsburg added to the fun. The owners could not have been nicer or more accommodating. It was perfect!

Unique place!

  • 5 of 5
We are 2 families with kids/teens living in the the Bay Area, we stayed for the Memorial Day week-end at the Castle. Not only is it a unique place by its original architecture, it is also an excellent base to explore the area.
Do not miss Patrick Amiot sculptures on Florence Street in Sebastopol and if you love biking, the area around Westside Road and Wohler Road in Healdsburg is absolutely beautiful, a perfect blend of Tuscany and California. And just under the Wohler Bridge, a small uncrowded beach is ideal for swimming and relaxing.

Perfect place to use as home base for Santa Rosa wedding event! Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place to gather our family around the wonderful event of our last child getting married. We didn't have a lot of notice and wondered if we'd find a place large enough for our immediate family gathering from NC, CO, & Southern CA. The wedding was in Santa Rosa so this was the perfect location for us, since we also wanted to be near Sebastopol where our son lives. The house suited us perfectly. The spacious kitchen was very well stocked w/ all the cooking utensils we needed and we loved the setting w/ the hot tub, the patio and the surrounding yard, so picturesque, nestled among the vineyards and towering redwoods. We liked the game room and 4th bedroom being a little separate from the main house too, some nice adult time, very comfortable. We only wish we could have had more time to read from the extensive book selection throughout the home. Having the most perfect weather for that time of year only enhanced our stay! The directions were great to get there, and we became quite familiar w/ the area going back and forth to help w/ the wedding prep. The host was very informative and helpful as well as welcoming! Thank you!

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5
Our family got together to celebrate the arrival of our first grandson. This house worked out perfectly. It was very clean and well maintained. Our family enjoys cooking and the kitchen was well stocked for our needs. We had one maintenance issue that the owner took care of the very day we brought it to his attention. There are plenty of restaurants and shopping areas within easy driving distance and all of us enjoyed some lovely wine tasting in the area. Thanks so much to the owners for a wonderful stay!

Notes:
6050 Vine Hill School Road is within walking distance to Martin Ray Winery as well as within bicycling distance to DeLoach, Sunce, and Hook and Ladder wineries; Our home is very private and looks out at vineyards to the south, pastures and mountains to the west and is surrounded by other large properties. It is very private and offers lots of opportunities for great walks by the vineyards (you might even catch a glimpse of the nesting bald eagles), beautiful drives on Dry Creek Road and West Side Road, easy access to Bodega Bay, excellent restaurants, music venues and art. Shopping is an experience in downtown Sebastopol, Healdsburg and Geyserville which are all within a 20 minute drive. Its a beautiful place, serene, quiet and very unique.
