Overview

Kenwood Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, vaulted ceilings, hot tub, large deck

Very private, elegant and full of character only begin to describe this hand-crafted and beautifully designed open-style home, located on a 20 acre private retreat. This tri-level home has unparalled features utilizing redwood reclaimed from the dismantling of the 1896 Acadia Hotel. With the convenience of just a short drive from town, you enter a world of hills, graceful oak woodlands and the sounds of year-round Santa Rosa Creek. The spacious vaulted-ceiling living area and kitchen opens up to a 1000 square foot south-facing deck that provides additional dining or seating, and a hot tub, to enjoy spectacular full-range views of tree-lined hills, wildlife and sunsets. Whether relaxing on the deck, in the hot tub or in the Jacuzzi of the master bath suite with your favorite wine from the private walk-in wine cellar, enjoying a meal prepared in the gourmet kitchen, or listening to the classical and 60s-90s record collection, the ambiance and tranquility are without comparison.

The “Acadia House”, with its private 20 acres and wonderful remote feel, is conveniently located in Sonoma County within a 20-30 min drive on scenic roads to the spas of Calistoga, the wineries, highly acclaimed restaurants and shops of Sonoma, Glen Ellen and Healdsburg, only 3-5 miles on Highway 12 from the wineries in Kenwood, yet only 15 minutes from all the additional amenities (restaurants, movie theaters, shopping) of Santa Rosa, 45-60 minutes from the beautiful beaches of the Pacific coastline and an hour from Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco.

Acadia House has three bedrooms, and three and a half baths with an additional futon-bed in the rec room to comfortably sleep 6-8. The master bedroom suite features a large Jacuzzi bath, surrounded by upper-level private and secluded decks that makes it feel like part of the outdoors. There are many hiking and biking opportunities with Mt Hood, Sugarloaf and Annadel State and Regional Parks within 5-10 miles.

This is not a house for wild parties, and although we prefer no pets, we may consider well-behaved mature dogs on a case by case basis. For groups of 2, reduction in daily rate may be agreed dependent on availability. Housekeeping/cleaning fee to be paid by guests at actual cost ($220). For longer stays, weekly cleaning services are available.

The owners, Debby, a scientist and more recently aerialist and Mel, an independent documentary film maker, bought this home for their future retirement, and prior to then are happy to share the joy and tranquility of this retreat with others as a Vacation Rental.

About Deborah Eppstein

We (Mel and Debby) live in the foothills of Salt Lake City, enjoying outdoor life in the surrounding mountains. We have visited Sonoma County yearly in January, and loved it so much that we decided this is where we want to retire in a a year or 2. Deb had previously lived in the Bay Area and had always looked forward to coming back, and Mel has also been a frequent visitor of and loves San Francisco. Debby is a scientist and entrepreneur in the biotechnology field, and her hobbies include performing the art of aerial dance and running triathlons. Mel is an independent documentary film maker and connoisseur of the fine arts, and an avid bicyclist. Both Mel and Deb enjoy traveling and experience both the wilderness and the cultures of city life.

Deborah Eppstein purchased this chateau / country house in 2012

Why Deborah Eppstein chose Kenwood

We fell in love with this property from the first time we saw it in spring of 2011. The house is incomparable- beautifully hand crafted by the prior owners from redwood, with a spacious and open design we love including vaulted ceilings throughout, with many windows and huge decks to bring the feel of the outdoors inside. The house is located on 20 acres of private, beautiful surrounding land, with graceful moss-lined oaks, a year round stream, and wonderful views. We had originally planned on purchasing property and designing and building our dream house, until we saw this property which was everything and then some of what we were looking for. We are so excited to own this house now!

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The house has a wonderful history- the prior owners hand crafted this home, utilizing redwood they salvaged from the 1896 Acadia Hotel (in Tracy, CA) that was dismantled shortly before they started building in the mid 70s (the house has been updated since then). This home has great privacy which we love, yet is only minutes from amenities of the city of Santa Rosa or the wineries and restaurants of Sonoma Valley and Northern Napa Valley, which both were important criteria for us. It is centrally located, providing easy access to the lovely towns of Calistoga, Sonoma, Glen Ellen, Kenwood, and Healdsburg, as well as all the conveniences of shopping in Santa Rosa. In addition, it is only 45-60 minutes from the Pacific Coast and an hour from the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. It has access to 2 lovely state and regional parks (Hood Mountain Regional Park, Annadel State Park) off Los Alamos Road within 3-5 miles for additional biking and hiking opportunities, and from Kenwood, Sugarloaf Ridge State Park which also has an observatory.

Wine Country Get Away

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a secluded contemporary house nestled among the trees, this house is perfect! This spacious house accommodated our three generation family quite well. Grandparents, parents and college age children all enjoyed this home base while attending a family wedding in Sonoma. We found that the house was well appointed with comfortable furnishings. The kitchen contained all the necessities too. We would recommend this lovely Sonoma County get away.

Great Experience in a beautiful home in the woods

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Acadia house with two other couples. There was plenty of room for everyone. The home was clean and well appointed. The kitchen was roomy and nicely equipped. The home was very isolated, which we really enjoyed. We saw deer every day. The location was convenient to the Sonoma wineries and an easy drive over the mountain to Napa. Debby, the owner of the home, was very easy to work with and very helpful with information and recommendations. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
We had an awesome stay. The house has everything you need and is very comfortable. It is secluded and a bit off the beaten path, but still convenient to most everything in Sonoma. A little bit of a trek to Napa, but not too bad if you are staying in Sonoma anyways. The owners have great instructions on how to use everything. Would definitely stay there again.

Perfect Secluded Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed over Labor Day weekend while in town for a wedding. The house was perfect for 3 couples. There was more than enough space and we thoroughly enjoyed the vast downstairs living room and deck area. The house was clean, the kitchen fully equipped, and the Wi-Fi/satellite TV were nice a bonus. The location of the house is great for anyone trying to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet. Since the house is in a quiet, secluded area, the drive off of the main highway takes a little time (about 10 minutes) are care (partly one lane road) but is worth it to get to the ultimate destination.

Fantastic house in a tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5
Had a great stay at this peaceful house nestled on a hill in the woods. It's a close enough drive to Sonoma county wineries and restaurants while still feeling like a totally private getaway. Very comfortable furnishings, tasteful decor, a great kitchen, a huge patio with gorgeous views with a hot tub and BBQ… not sure one could ask for much more. Also the vinyl collection and great stereo was an unexpected bonus. :)

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We came to visit family in Kenwood, and we were delighted to have a place to stay that was beautiful and welcoming and well kept. It was a gorgeous retreat. The owner was very helpful in answering all of our questions and concerns. The photos on the website were accurate and helpful. We enjoyed dinner at the Vineyards Inn nearby. We didn't cook, but the kitchen is lovely. Our entire stay was very comfortable.

Map

Nearest Motorway
3.6 Miles
Highway 12
Car: necessary

Acadia House is located in the heart of Sonoma County, close to numerous wineries, restaurants, shopping, golf and other amenities, yet secluded on 20 private acres of hills and majestic oak trees, only 5-7 miles from 3 state and regional parks for hiking and biking. The weather is generally sunny and beautiful from April through October, yet as our property is also only 45 minutes from the Pacific Ocean, the cooler marine air nearby keeps the summer days from getting too hot. Night time temperatures are cool and refreshing. We are 15-30 minutes from numerous attractions, including the spa's of Calistoga, the famed Sonoma Square, and of course the wineries, restaurants and shopping of Sonoma, Glen Ellen, Kenwood, Calistoga, and Santa Rosa.
