Hi my name is Darcy. I grew up in Locust Valley, Long Island and have lived in Northern California since 1982. We have two kids away in college, two friendly female dogs and enjoy our home with our many friends. My husband Bruce has lived his whole life in Northern California. His passion is wine making and growing fruits and vegetables.

Darcy Stephens purchased this house in 1995

We liked the quiet country setting and the house had great potential.

Quiet. Two miles to the Plaza. Flat terrain for bike riding and walking. Great hiking within a few miles or less. Wineries nearby. Pool, hot tub. Two bikes. Pet friendly. Barrel tasting if available. Wine making and bottling done at different times.

Sorry this posting is late, but we needed time to come out of our vacation depression. Our hosts, Bruce and Darcy, made our stay one of the best we've ever had! They're home is cozy and inviting and their warmth and hospitality is second to none! As they gave us as much privacy as we wanted, they made themselves available for any needs or wants and were both available for conversation and a glass of wine to enjoy with. My wife and I have boasted and told all of our friends worthy of this vacation getaway about our experience! We will definitely be back, not only to spend time in beautiful Sonoma, but to spend time with our new friends! Thank you both so much!

Our stay felt very cozy! The unit is attached to the owners home but has a private entrance and access to the backyard which includes a pool and hot tub. It was too cold for us to enjoy but with the right time of year it would be great. The mud room had kitchen amenities which we found were perfect and completely adequete for snacks and a light breakfast with microwave, refrig and coffee maker, as well as the neccessary plates, drinkware and silverware. The owner even provided creamer, a few bottles of water and beer, and Italian boscotti! That was great! The bathroom is seperated and across the hall from the bedroom which allowed some privacy for each of each while we were getting ready. The owner, Darcy had the bathroom stocked with shampoo/condtioner and neutragena shower gel as well as makeup remover pads and all kinds of other little sample size products to use. A very special touch! Darcy, was a perfect host, making sure everything was ok during our stay and allowed us lots of privacy. The room was cozy but on the small side and tight for 2 suitcases. A slight update on a wall mounted TV would allow some more room for a second suitcase rack vs placing it on the couch in the room. This did not allow much use of the small couch in the room. The couch is in need of updating-when sitting on it, it sort of sinks very low to the floor. When we were there there was a cold spell and since we did not have direct control over any heat in our room we were cold in the eveinings. A small space heater would also have been great. (I'm sure if we would of asked Darcy, she could of provided this for us!) We would get back late and then remember but didnt want to disturb her. She did have a small fan for convenience. The room also had a radio and plenty of outlets for charging computers, cell phones, etc. The drive to Napa is about 20-25 mins-which was fine. We meet friends in Calistoga/St Helena which we found was a little farther than we had hoped at approx 40-45 mins. Those 3 small changes would make for perfection! We definitely felt like home away from home. Overall we found the stay very comfortable and would stay there again. I would highly recommend it! Thank you for the great accommedations!

My wife and I visited Sonoma for our 10 year wedding anniversary. We had a fantastice time. The location was perfect as it was very close to many fine eating establishments as well as several great wineries in Sonoma and Napa, but you will be hardpressed to find any better wine than Bruce makes right in the backyard. The only wine we had (and we had plenty) that compares is the Rubicon from Inglenook.

Bruce and Darcy were great at letting you have your privacy as well as providing tips for wineries to visit and dining establishments. Darcy has put together a binder that has tons of information with helpful tips from the locals. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time, Bruce even gave us some packing neoprene to make sure our purchases made it homse safely. I am recommending this place to all my friends and family. My wife and I are well traveled and are already making plans to return.

The room is comfortable, the bathroom spacious, and the bikes worked great and saved us a lot by avoiding rentals and it is all complete with a heated pool/hot tub.

Thank you for your hospitality, we had an amazing experience.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay here last weekend. This home is located in a great spot just minutes from Sonoma Plaza and a bunch of some of the best wineries in Sonoma (e.g., Buena Vista, Ravenswood, Gundlach Bundschu just to name a few).

The cottage was very nice and had everything we needed down to fresh half and half and butter in the fridge for our coffee and bagels. One of our favorite things was sitting on the patio every morning drinking our coffee and watching the sun rise over the hills in the distance. We also really enjoyed the hot tub - it was just what we needed after a long day of bike riding (another bonus - the owners let you borrow their bikes!).

Our favorite part of the entire trip was getting to talk to the owners, Darcy and Bruce. They are some of the nicest and hospitable people you will ever meet. Not only did Bruce give us a personal tour of his vineyard and wine cellar, but he shared a couple of bottles of excellent wine that he made. He was also kind enough to invite my husband to help him bottle some of his wine which was a real treat for my husband who is an aspiring wine maker, and he even gave us a bottle to take home.

We will definitely be back. Thank you so much Bruce and Darcy!!!!
Owner's Response: Glad you had such a nice time.
