Sonoma House Rental Photos and Description

NOTE: DUE TO A RECENT PHISHING EPISODE, PLEASE EITHER PROVIDE YOUR PHONE NUMBER ON YOUR INQUIRY OR CALL US SO WE CAN CONFIRM LEGITIMATE REQUESTS! THANKS!

Kick off your shoes and enjoy a restful stay in our lovingly renovated Craftsman bungalow. You are welcome to turn back the clock to that bygone era of simple elegance and unfettered relaxation. This quiet two acre getaway offers comfort and ease; whether it be with a fresh brewed cup of coffee on the east facing front porch where you can gaze across the pastoral field where sheep graze, or with an evening beverage on the west facing deck where expansive views take in vineyards, heritage oaks and distant hills, the tranquility of our country life calls.

Conveniently located in the heart of the Carneros appellation of Sonoma, you will be less than eight minutes from the historic Sonoma Plaza, 20 minutes from Petaluma to the west, Napa to the east, state parks to the north or Marin county to the south.

No matter what your desire, we have it all: wonderful art galleries, cafes, restaurants, artisanal bakeries, wineries, farmers markets, the Sonoma Raceway, hiking, biking, golf, horseback riding, antiquing...as well as charm, comfort and tranquility all awaiting you at Sonoma DunRoamin!

At the end of your day of touring or relaxation, wrap up in a warm blanket and step outside to behold the twinkling night sky and enjoy the soothing sounds of silence. Finally, slip into 500 thread-count sheets and down comforter atop a TempurPedic mattress for the rejuvenating sleep you’ll need for your next day of Sonoma roamin’.

We invite you to delight in our special bungalow during your wine country sojourn!

A Bay Area lad and an Iowa lass both fell in love with Sonoma many years ago. We would be honored to be your hosts while you're touring the wine country north of San Francisco.

Lois & Ted purchased this house in 1998

It is our pleasure to share this dream-come-true with you! What was once a simple country house has been lovingly designed and rebuilt by Ted, fulfilling his lifelong dream to live a Craftsman lifestyle. Ted also built a second dwelling behind the bungalow which is our residence. Here is your opportunity to return to that simpler life, the Craftsman life, if even for a few days...to slow down and savor each precious moment life offers you.

'DunRoamin'... a fitting name for a dream-come-true! We are done roaming!

In addition to the unique charm and beauty of the bungalow, the property boasts brilliant sunrises over the Mayacamas mountains along with romantic sunsets over the Sonoma coastal range making this property a very special place to start and end each day in the beautiful Sonoma countryside.

If you're seeking a peaceful and quiet place to call home for awhile, look no further. You are Dunroamin!

Charming House in Idyllic Surroundings

  • 5 of 5
Our week at Dunroamin was everything we'd hoped for and more. The house, lovingly restored by Ted and beautifully appointed by Lois, was immaculate, luxurious, and full of charm. Ted and Lois were gracious hosts, available for questions and full of recommendations about local attractions yet very respectful of our privacy. The house is in the middle of farmland and vineyards and feels very remote. We saw cows, horses, peacocks and goats every morning on our walks. But it is less than an hour from San Francisco and only 5-10 minutes from the Sonoma plaza and more excellent wineries than we had time to visit. It is also an easy, beautiful drive to the Russian River and redwood forests to the north. Little touches provided by Lois showed her attention to detail and made us feel welcomed: a bottle of Pinot; a pint of the most delicious strawberries we'd ever tasted from a nearby farm stand; and an ample supply of coffee, teas, and bottled water.
Lois and Ted live on the property, a plus should any problems arise. But they are also unobtrusive and, apparently so were we, so privacy is not an issue. Our musician son practiced his trumpet every morning for several hours with the windows open, and they barely heard him.
We were sad to leave and hope to return to this wonderful house!

Beautiful home in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5
We spent one week in the wine country enjoying the wine, food, shopping and lovely setting. Dunroamin was the perfect place for us. Located in a quiet country setting, it is still only 10 minutes to Sonoma. The house was immaculate and showed a lot of love and care went into the design and furnishings. The house was well-equipped and provided us with plenty of room for 4 adults. Two separate bedroom suites provided privacy yet there are many places to gather with a bottle of wine.

Wonderful hosts and everything you could possibly need

  • 5 of 5
We were so fortunate to have enjoyed a weekend at Dunroamin! Lois and Ted were the best of hosts, and the house is stocked with everything you could possibly need. The back patio with the hot tub is the perfect place to relax and enjoy time spent with friends. The most memorable part of our weekend at the house was getting all dressed up and taking pictures with the beautiful yellow LaSalle that Ted had in the garage. What a rare pleasure that was! We highly recommend this wonderful home, and we will be back. Looking forward to seeing you again someday soon, Lois and Ted.

Fabulous Sonoma Home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for one week at the end of July in 2014. The home is nicely furnished, very clean, and comfortable. The owners are kind and welcoming. The location is convenient to the towns and wineries of both Sonoma and Napa. The days were warm and the evening cool due to the Carneros breezes (most pleasant for sleeping). I would recommend this location for a quiet getaway. We would absolutely stay here again anytime we are in Sonoma!

Great location - beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
The home is absolutely wonderful! There is not an item or detail forgotten. Lois is a wonderful host and even helped provide us with extra amenities (giving us the crockpot from her own kitchen!) She has thought of everything any guest could possibly want. The location is great, close distance to both Sonoma and Napa wineries -- highly recommend to anyone!

Owner's Response: Thanks Katie, Veronica, Jen, Rachel and "sister" whose name escapes me (sorry). It was so great having you here...being from the same area where I grew up was a special treat. You are all welcome to return. And we love the pyramid pose you dreamed up for our guest album pic! I'll keep the crock pot handy for ya! Thanks for the nice review. It's greatly appreciated.

This lovingly created Craftsman Bungalow was an awesome place to launch our wine country excursion. In fact it was so comfortable and homey, that our ambition to explore wine country was considerably mellowed. From the front porch for morning coffee to the hot tub facing sunset to the professionally stocked kitchen, this gorgeous bungalow had it all. We did not want to leave. Ted and Lois were a pleasure to do business with and they have thought of all manner detail. We look forward to returning some day.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your time in the wine country and here at DunRoamin. It was a real treat to hear Dave playing ragtime on Ted's vintage Craftsman piano. That was a first! We welcome you back for your future tastings! And remind Dave to bring his sheet music! Thanks for the nice review.

2 local airports are minutes from the property offering landing privileges as well as bi-plane charters to get a birds-eye view of the wine country; occasionally, hot air balloons are seen floating above the field across from our bungalow. We were fortunate to have one land on our field early one morning in August 2011! Breathtaking!
