COUNTRY RETREAT W/ POOL AND SPA IN HEART OF SONOMA VALLEY

Kenwood Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

FAMILIES AND FRIENDS: Treat yourself to this spacious retreat in the heart of Sonoma Valley, set amidst vineyards, farms, and pastoral mountain views. You'll enjoy the beautiful heated natural rock pool (Solar heated during season) and the spa, outdoor fire pit, landscaped gardens, and bocce court. Lots of room to congregate or spread out. Come to relax.

Kenwood is located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley surrounded by world class wineries. Fantastic restaurants, from café to five-star, are in Kenwood and the neighboring village of Glen Ellen. Travel just ten miles to historic Sonoma Square or take a fifteen mile backroad drive to the heart of Napa Valley.

For Mountain Bikers you will find some of the best single-track biking in California one-half mile from our driveway. The vacant winding country roads of the area beckon your road bike. Within a five-mile radius are three state parks offering outdoor recreation including biking, hiking, picnicking and swimming. Spa facilities are available nearby at the Kenwood Inn and Spa or Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa.

A warm gracious living room invites you to sit by the fire and play cards, read, or watch a movie. The family room is off the patio and pool and has a wood burning stove.

The large, gourmet equipped kitchen allows several to happily cook while enjoying the company of their friends. You'll find such touches as a professional range, granite counters, and an espresso maker. The dining area seats eight, and a café/game table is in the family room.

There are a total of four bedrooms and four bathrooms on the property. There is an additional queen pullout sofa in a semi private living room.

The main house has two bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has a king bed and doors leading to the patio and hot tub. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The master bath includes double sinks and a large Jacuzzi (bathtub).

Our spacious guest house is just steps away. It features a king bed, living area, mini-kitchen, full bath, and verandah.

The newly remodeled barn has one bedroom with 2 queen beds, a full bathroom and pool/pingpong table.

While fully equipped for entertaining, this is our family country home. We cannot accommodate large parties owing to zoning and our septic system. We do not wish to disturb our neighbors in this peaceful, private area. We ask that no more than ten be on the property.

We invite you to come, enjoy your family and friends, and enjoy our home in Sonoma Valley!

06/29/07 Positive This property is so fantastic! Our family had so much fun winding through the beautiful hills and vineyards of Kenwood to find this hidden jewel. Once we arrived, we enjoyed exploring the tasteful and casual main house, charming studio guest house and the cozy converted barn. For our family, center stage was the beautiful courtyard patio with a large table and rock edged pool. We appreciated having a removable and unobtrusive child safety fence in place upon our arrival. The kitchen was a dream - the cooks in our family used lavender and rosemary fresh from the patio garden in several dishes. The pool, bocce court and garden paths appealed to our children, and the adults enjoyed the ambiance of the courtyard patio during the day and evening as a conversation area.

04/03/07 Positive This is a very beautiful property that comfortably accommdates ten people. The grounds are spacious and provides lots of privacy from neighbors. Photos are accurate but doesn't do the property justice in representing it's beauty. It's the perfect Sonoma getaway.

04/03/07 Positive This house was a wonderful retreat in Sonoma. It is tucked away from all the main roads, in a beautiful and relaxing setting. The house is very spacious, clean, nicely furnished, and comfortable. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well-appointed... it is a real gem!

OUTSTANDING STAY AND PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at multiple properties in Northern California over the years - this is top of the list. The property was beautifully laid out - with nice natural divisions between 3 building structures. Family members could be close but be apart. We could each have our own lawn. There were great activities for all family members on the property. The kids made full use of the pool. Adults love the hot tub. All of us played ping pong and bocci ball. There was a pool table too. There were nice indoor and outdoor gathering areas for the evening time. The large outside BBQ was great for preparing dinner. Rob had left all kinds of nice touches - tissues everywhere, fresh flowers, beautifully tended gardens, a rollaway bed setup before we arrived for our son - giving his sister her own space (a novelty). At some rental houses, we've had the need to immediately find out what activities there were outside the property. Not here. We could have happily lazed and entertained ourselves for several more days on this large property. Thank you for a wonderful stay at this slice of heaven, remarkably close to San Francisco (about 1 hr, 20 mins).

PERFECT WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
We had the most WONDERFUL time in Kenwood!!! My fiance proposed in San Francisco the night before we arrived at the estate, and we spent the weekend celebrating with friends and family. It could not have been in a more perfect setting. Marybeth had everything we needed (and more!), fresh roses on the tables, and the grounds are absolutely beautiful! THANK YOU for everything; it was the most perfect place for our celebration.

SPACIOUS, COMFORTABLE PROPERTY IN A BEAUTIFUL SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of 8 friends and we could not have been happier with our accommodations. The owner was great to work with. The setting was gorgeous. All 3 buildings were updated and comfortable. The main house kitchen was perfect. The pool and backyard were very attractive. There is a lot of attention to details - the kitchen was stocked, beach towels, hair dryers, etc. We had breakfast on the large patio table each morning.
We walked to nearby Annandel State Park and hiked. One day we did a tasting on our own then lunch in Sonoma, a few hours relaxing at the house and dinner in Sonoma again. The next day we did a wine limo tour and dinner in Santa Rosa. Our favorite wineries were Scribe and St Francis, we had reservations and private tastings at both - definitely worth it.
I would have loved to stay one more day and just relaxed on the property. This would be great for a few couples, a large group or a couple of families. Lots of room.
Thanks!

COMPLETELY WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We had four couples who stayed on this property on our visit to Sonoma. We all absolutely LOVED it! The main house had two bedrooms, kitchen, two different living areas and two bathrooms, both with showers. There was a guesthouse with its own bathroom, and a bedroom over an outbuilding with its own bathroom, so it was an awesome place for couples as there was plenty of room to spread out. The pool, hot tub, and bocci ball court added to the amenities. After spending the day roaming wine country, we would unwind back at the house, grill out, and hang out in the pool/hot tub and play bocci ball. The owner was wonderful to work with, we all can't wait to go back again, and we will definitely stay here!

SPECTACULAR GIRLS' WEEKEND FOR TEN

Spectacular Girls' Weekend for Ten
  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of ten women in their mid- to upper 30s, all professionals with high standards and coming from all over the country and in fact the world: we came from Chicago, Maryland, New York, Sacramento, and Singapore, for a four-day pre-wedding celebration (ie, bachelorette weekend).

My main concern prior to the weekend was that we would be comfortable sleeping, as the place advertises four bedrooms and four bathrooms, which I thought would be a little tight for ten. In fact there was plenty of room, because this rental is more of an "estate" than a house, and each of the three buildings has quite a lot of room, including two living rooms with sleepable couches. I truly can't imagine a more perfect place for a group like ours.

We originally had plans to go out to dinner one night and also drive somewhere for a hike, but in fact we hardly left the house by car: the house was too fabulous to leave for dinner, so we cooked in; and, there is a spectacular state park an easy walk away, so we spent an entire day hiking followed by lounging in the pool.

The location is beautiful and private, one of those areas you'd never get to see if you weren't staying there. You drive down a long, winding, single-lane road between vineyards to get there; marvelous.

As for planned events, we spent a Friday touring wine country with Beau Limo, whom I would recommend for a stress-free wine tour. Saturday night we had Relish culinary school in Healdsburg come to the house for an on-site cooking class followed by dinner. I cannot recommend Relish enough; it was such a joy to have them come to the house, and the dinner was at least as lovely as what we would have had in a restaurant. It wasn't cheap but that was the big splurge for the weekend and well worth it - especially since the house itself was adequate entertainment for most of the weekend.

There's also an on-site miniature vineyard; a bocce ball court; ping-pong and pool; and cabinets full of board games. We could have spent a lot more time and always had new things to do. I would have liked to have taken a long walk through the winding country roads, maybe next time.

I'm already trying to cook up another trip where I bring my entire extended family; will definitely aim to go back. Many thanks to the owners for truly setting up a fantastic vacation spot.

EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
This place was better than great! It was clean, comfortable, good location to many wineries. We could have stayed there longer than a week! Sleeping accommodations were great, pool and hot tub were clean and the entire property was well kept. Would stay there again next time we go to CA.!
