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! :)

About Kelly Nelson

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

Why Kelly Nelson chose Kenwood

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We spent two nights here and were extremely happy with everything. Owner had provided lots of information on getting the most out of our stay - recommendations for shopping, wineries, restaurants. Arriving and gaining access to the house was easy. The place was clean, bright, tastefully decorated, nice art and furnishings. Home was very spacious. We would rent this again in a heart beat. Sonoma and Napa are within an easy driving distance.

Terrific value, terrific home

  • 5 of 5
This home is located in a beautiful and serene setting very close to the town of Glen Ellen. The house was well-appointed, attractive and comfortable; very well represented in the website photos. My family of seven was a perfect fit, and being able to bring the dog was a real bonus. The owners are polite, easy to work with and exceptionally quick to respond. I highly recommend the property.

Comfy, quiet, fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this Glen Ellen home and it was fantastic! Kelly was more than helpful and accommodating for our stay. This rental is spacious, super comfortable, quiet (other than nature noises which were welcomed), shady (did yoga on the deck every morning), clean and perfect! The pictures don't do the sizes of the rooms justice- my family of 5 was very comfortable and felt at home. Everything is thought of from hiking books, maps, travel info, a few kitchen and bath ammenities & technology. Just outside of Sonoma enough but close to everything and the town of Glen Ellen is fantastic. Loved our stay--thank you!

Wine Country Relaxation

  • 4 of 5
My family and I had a fabulous time during our stay at this Glen Ellen house. The house is located in a nice quiet wooded neighborhood. In fact there aren't any neighbors on one side of their property. It's all woods. The house was neat, clean, and well equipped. It was great having the hot tub to relax in outside during our stay. An added bonus to this house is that Morton's Warm Springs with it's 3 swimming pools and picnic area is located kitty corner to the property. For this reason this house would be a wonderful place for a family with young or teenage children to stay. It's also a great place for a romantic vacation for a couple as well. The house is near many wineries and not far from Sonoma Plaza area.

Owner's Response: Thanks for being such a wonderful guest Karen. Apologies for getting your online house manual to you 2 days before your arrival instead of 3 as stated in our policy. We'll make sure to stay on top of that and appreciate your feedback regarding the 4 stars instead of 5.

Beautiful pet-friendly home in a natural setting

  • 5 of 5
The Oak Haven is a lovely home in a quiet, natural setting. The photos and description of the home were very accurate. We found the home to be well-furnished, clean, quiet, and comfortable - just what we were looking for! It is located on a country lane just out of Glen Ellen and very close to Kenwood, both of which are quaint, wine country towns. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, and we had the pleasure of seeing a family of deer and some wild turkeys on several occasions. The owner, Kelly, made the registration process easy and provided very thorough instructions on all aspects of the house. It was nice to be able to bring our little dog with us. As far as nearby attractions, we enjoyed visiting Ledson Winery, the Luther Burbank home and gardens in Santa Rosa, Jack London Historic Park, chocolate tasting in Glen Ellen, Sonoma Plaza, and the tractor/tram tour of Benzinger Vineyards. We would definitely recommend all of these! We can't wait to visit the Sonoma Valley again and see even more.

Great place in Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5
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!
