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!

About Lois & Ted

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

Why Lois & Ted chose Sonoma

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! And invite you to do the same if only for a few days.

What makes this house unique

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!

This place is amazing, clean and what character! We traveled to DunRoamin for my friend's 40th birthday weekend. From the beginning Lois was thoughtful and caring. She greeted us upon arrival and had a lovely bottle of local wine waiting for us. Ted remolded the cottage and the craftsman style is true to era even down to the door knobs. We loved the location and sitting on the porch sipping coffee and watching the sheep graze. Oh and don't forget about friendly Fred the farm cat, he was so entertaining to watch. Lois and Ted, thank you. You thought of everything and we will see you again next year.

Lovely DunRoamin!

  • 5 of 5

Not only is this a beautiful and well decorated home (that's obvious from the pictures), but it is stocked with so many thoughtful amenities that help make the stay special. It's a serene location - we loved sitting on the porch & watching the sheep graze in the pasture across the street, but it's also close to great restaurants, wineries, and downtown Sonoma. Lois and Ted are wonderful hosts & we look forward to visiting again!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed your week at DunRoamin. The porch and the sheep miss you! Do come again.....in the meantime, we'd love a photo of the original gates Kenton suggested :-)

Lovely place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect place to stay in Sonoma for couples, or a family. The location is very close to downtown Sonoma and close to getting on the highway as well. We had a wonderful time sitting on the porch in the mornings and enjoying the house in the evenings. It is furnished beautifully, with a full kitchen, washer/dryer and it is overall very comfortable. There are plenty of additional things like games and books in the house too. We plan to be back - and I may even bring back some girlfriends next time! Lois and Ted are wonderful and so accommodating!!

Sonoma DunRoamin stunning wine country home to rent!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home we rented in Sonoma from Lois and Ted! The home was exactly how it looks on the internet, plus more! The home featured hard wood floors, country feel decor and classic taste. When we arrived we were greeted by Lois and she showed us through the home, even giving us some pizzas to eat, as we arrived very late with no dinner. She was a pleasure to work with through the whole process. I highly recommend Sonoma DunRoamin for all travelers going to Sonoma!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Lindsey, for your wonderful comments. We loved having you and your friends here and look forward to seeing you again in the future. It was our pleasure to accommodate your late arrival and happy that we had something in the freezer to satisfy your hunger late at night!! You had a magical time touring the wine country with all your Wisconsin friends. How convenient that you could walk to their rental for your get togethers!

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

Really nice craftsman house! Nice furnishings and very well appointed. Knives were sharp and beds were very comfortable (two things that most rental properties are lacking). Kitchen was well equipped. Good space for our 2 couples. Only drawback was that there is only one shower, but it wasn't a huge problem for us. The other bathroom had a great tub that we unfortunately didn't have time to enjoy.

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!

Owner's Response: Wow!! Thank you for your gracious and thorough review, Lynne. You have described our property as we could only dream a guest would do! We are so happy that you and your family enjoyed your time at DunRoamin while also relishing the many wonderful local attractions found in the area. We would love to have you in the future and we appreciate Steve's great photography!

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!
