Kenwood House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath with Deck, Hot Tub and Forest Views. Sqft: 1,408 Lot: 9,016

Welcome to The Valley Of The Moon! Glen Ellen, a little gem in the heart of the rolling green hills of wine country, is only 15 minutes from downtown Sonoma and prides itself on offering something amazing for everyone. With many epic state parks and famous vineyards just a few minutes away, we invite you to relax and enjoy wilderness and fine wine at your doorstep in our newly remodeled vacation get away home, The Oak Haven!

Nestled among giant oak trees, hugging an uninhabited sprawling forest and across from Morton's Warm Springs (open only during the summer months), our lovely sanctuary offers the blissful indulgence of a welcome retreat. Come and see the deer, turkey, fox and other wildlife that inhabit the forest next to our property. In the winter a gurgling stream borders the property flowing amid stones and golden leaves.

Our elegant home features a spacious deck with a grill and outdoor table that seats 6 for dining in the sunshine/shade while enjoying forest scenery or star-gazing in the evening with zero light pollution. Enjoy a hot, bubbling soak under the brilliant stars after dinner in our large, 6 person hot tub!

High, sloping, wooden ceilings, large windows, a dining table for 6, gorgeous antique furniture, hardwood floors, beautiful ceiling fans, well appointed lighting and a pellet-burning fireplace combine to create a luxurious, relaxing experience with natural light and a quaint, rustic feel.

An new, eco friendly washer and dryer are available as well as an ironing board and iron.

Enjoy your preferred media on our portable 50 inch flat screen Apple TV and surround sound speaker bar. You can easily surf for movies, news, HBO shows, sports, iTunes and many more in high def. Apple TV also offers access to your personal iTunes music library from your laptop or iPhone. High speed internet is also readily available.

For reading enthusiasts, there's a plush lounging chair with a foot rest by the fireplace. A book case offering local hiking/biking guide books, cook books, board games and classic short stories is close by.

Crack a bottle of local, organic wine in our well appointed, fully stocked kitchen. Gleaming in black, silver and green with large sun lit windows, our kitchen also offers ample storage space, an electric stove top, a double oven, a large stainless steel fridge and all new appliances including a microwave, toaster, juicer, coffee grinder, coffee maker and french press.

The master bedroom suite features a queen bed, newly remodeled bathroom, an open walk in closet that serves as a little room where you can use our treadmill, antique armoire, a fan for fresh air, AC window unit, plush new carpet and a sliding door out to the surrounding deck.

Our middle room offers a brand new, comfy double size bed for those couples that like to snuggle close and an antique reading table.

Our guest bedroom features a queen bed, antique armoire, new carpet, AC window unit and big closet. Both bedrooms come with iPhone charger docks plus speakers with FM Radio, Alarm Clock and remote control.

Both the master bath and the guest bath have been remodeled with beautiful tile floors and new vanities, lights, sinks and fixtures. The bathrooms also come with organic bathing gels, shampoo/conditioners and hair dryers.

For those of you with dogs, we have an extra large 4ft wide X 8ft long X 6ft high dog kennel on the side of the house opposite the hot tub for added pet security while on premises. We ask that you please clean up after your pet, don't allow them on the furniture and make sure they don't disturb the neighbors. We love good dogs! :)

Off street parking in front of our gate accommodates up to 3 small cars or 2 large ones. We recommend parking them on an angle. There is also ample public parking across the street in front of the chain link fence at Morton's Warm Springs. From San Francisco airport, it will take approximately 90 minutes outside of rush hour coming through SF and over the Golden Gate Bridge. From the Oakland Airport is 1 hour and 20 minutes.

The house as a whole is quite enchanting and comfortable with plenty of seating, entertainment and gorgeous views. Come, enjoy yourself and take a load off. You deserve it! :)

Claude and I split our time between Oakland, Lexington, Mass and Glen Ellen. We're both artists and musicians. Claude works in the high tech industry. Our escape from work and urban life is to our dream home in beautiful Glen Ellen. We've been warmly welcomed as new comers to the area and love the progressive, easy going people that we've met. We are so happy and fortunate to have such a lovely home in such an incredible place. We're super thrilled to be able to share it with you!

Kelly Nelson purchased this house in 2013

As a nature lovers and avid hikers Claude and I were drawn to Glen Ellen for it's numerous state parks and cycling opportunities. Awe inspiring natural surroundings took our breath away and had us coming back to the area time and time again. When we decided to look for a vacation home, privacy was on the top of our priority list. I said yes as soon as I walked into our house in early 2013. The house was perfect with an uninhabited forest on one side, a sloping hill behind and below us and a nice, tall fence separating our property from our friendly neighbor, Jim. We also fell in love with the quaint town of Sonoma (15 min away) for it's diverse culinary offerings, lovely town square and artisan craft stores and wine tasting opportunities. We really have it all in this area.

Waking up to the early morning sound of song birds and ravens while wandering outside with a steaming cup of hot coffee only to find a mother deer and her fawn gazing up at me calmly in our yard was one experience of many that made me fall in love with this place.

Enjoying the intense greenery of the forest playing off the dappled light on our deck while lounging in a rocking chair watching the sun fade to brilliant hues of red and gold with a glass of pinot noir was another.

Leaning out over our balcony in the pitch blackness of night (no street lights!) as crickets came to life under cover of darkness in a cacophony of song while gazing up at the incredibly clear stars so bright and shining yet one more.

Great place in Sonoma!

I rented this place with a colleague to get away from the city for a writing retreat. It was perfect! The place was quiet and beautiful and in excellent condition. We liked being able to get away for a quick break to a few wineries, or for a hike in nearby parks. Kelly was very responsive while booking, and while we were staying there. Detailed information was helpful and available during our stay. We were visited by deer in the morning, and the place has a lovely peaceful energy. Would definitely stay there again!

We stayed here over Veteran's Day Weekend (NOV 8-12) and had a great experience. Leading up to our stay the communication with Glen and Kelly was flawless. I really appreciated the welcome email with house instructions and the offer to call them and their neighbor if we ever needed anything.
We had 6 adults and 1 eighteen month old during out visit. The bedrooms provided plenty of space for our luggage and a play pen for the baby. I think you fill find that this rental house is much more inviting and more cost effective than any hotel in town.
The rental house has everything you would want for an extended stay. If you plan on buying groceries I recommend stopping at the WalMart grocery store in Napa. There is a market in town but it is pricey. We booked a wine tasting tour through Playtapus and had a great experience as well. There are many restaurants in a close distance from the house as well as wineries. The hot tub was a great feature since it was chilly out during out stay. We were greated daily by deer outside only about 20 feet away. It was a great experience for everyone.
This house is the perfect amount of getaway and relaxation. We would love to stay here again and don't have any doubts you will love it too!

Fantastic stay in the middle of Sonoma wine country

We decided to spend New Year's here with two other couples. We couldn't have asked for a better home. What's more, Kelly and Claude were great leading up to the visit - very responsive, welcoming, and detailed in everything about the house. The home itself is extremely well maintained. We were able to go out to vineyards during the day and come back to the house to enjoy NYE in the spacious living room and kitchen with friends (and even two of our dogs - a huge bonus!). I woke up early on New Year's Day to take an early morning soak in the hot tub, and I was welcomed by two deer walking around at the edge of the yard no more than thirty feet away. We had an easy drive to Bodega Bay and Santa Rosa later that day. Highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to enjoy Sonoma County and all around it.

This was a birthday present to me from my girlfriend. She asked me what I wanted and I told her I just wanted to get away from the city go somewhere and relax and she surprised me with this. I couldn't have been more pleased. Secluded, out in the middle of nowhere (so to speak) quiet, lots of trees, and a hot tub too which was perfect since it was a bit chilly that weekend. The fireplace helped with the cold as well. The house was nice, very well kept, clean in the bedrooms and bathrooms, nice kitchen too. The are lots of vineyards nearby as well although we didn't visit any, maybe next time. All in all we had a great time and would most definitely come here again in fact we a planning on it. Highly recommended.

My friends and I rented this place for a weekend working retreat. It was the perfect spot to catch up on a bunch of work that had been piling up, then relax and grill on the deck and the warm living room and dining room. The place was exactly as described and exactly what we were looking for. Thank you!
