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!

Wonderful wine country home

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent 3 nights/4 days at Marybeth and Rob's lovely Kenwood home. It was perfect for our family of 8 and we had a fabulous time enjoying the pool, hot tub, bocce ball court etc. It was so nice to be greeted with fresh flowers and a couple of bottles of wine. Plus the beds are very comfortable and the towels are new and fluffy. We certainly plan to re-visit in the future!

Exceeded expectations.

  • 5 of 5
A group of 8 of us (ages 31-34) flew in from all over the country. We got to the house and everything was ready to go for us. Once you pull through the front gates, you immediately feel like you are on vacation. You are secluded from everyone else and everything about the property screams relaxation. Drinks by pool/hot tub, playing pool/ping pong in the barn, playing bocce ball...this place has it all. They even have Top Gun on VHS. Classic!
4 nights, fantastic weather, limo service to wineries, great friends, 150 bottles of wine shipped home, and amazing accommodations. Many on our trip concluded its was the best vacation we'd ever been on.

The Best House in Sonoma

  • 5 of 5
This is the best house we've rented in Sonoma.

Absolutely idylic location, close to Glen Ellen and the main strip of Kenwood-area wineries, but far enough off the beaten path to know you're on vacation. The actual home is more of a compound: a main house with two large bedrooms, fantastic kitchen, several sitting rooms; a guest house with king bed, kitchenette and full bath; and the barn with two full beds upstairs, full bath and pool table / pingpong table downstairs.

As much as the inside spaces are wonderful, we really enjoyed the outside. The enclosed back yard with its gorgeous pool and hot tub area -- along with a massive dining table and huge grill. And then there's the full-size bocce court and beyond that the fire pit right by the barn.

Our family of five spent the entire vacation outdoors -- amazing! And when inside, we were cooking together...or playing cards...or building puzzles (they have tons)...or playing boardgames (again, tons).

The care and upkeep of the property is visible, and there were so many nice touches that show a homeowner going above-and-beyond: fresh cut flowers throughout the house for our stay; several wonderful bottle of wine for us to enjoy; even 'smokes fixings for the kids.

High-class and amazing place to spend time in Sonoma.

best family vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5
A week at this property has set the bar impossibly high for future family vacations! Secluded and gated yet with tons of attractions within a short driving distance, it was perfect for our 3 families...and several day guests. We had grandparents, 2 younger families, and 5 kids from 6 to 22. Each family had their own residence, which was great.
The property was beautifully kept and Rob and MaryBeth went the extra mile to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Rob even called to ask if we needed rollabeds for the kids, and where should he put them? Bottles of wine and vases of roses awaited us.
We could hike right from the property, down quiet lanes lined with ripe blackberries, to a nearby state park. (Sorry, no dogs allowed in most parks here...we left ours home.) There were tons of vineyards nearby to visit, as well as the town of Sonoma (great dining), and the Jack London State Park by Glenn Ellen was fascinating.
It was also easy to stay on the property. Plenty of lovely spots to read and just chat; a beautifully landscaped pool for kids to let off energy; an inviting hot tub; and a Bocce court where every game was keenly contested and drew in spectators. Oh, and a dream kitchen!
We will definitely be back!

Perfect spot for a wine country get away

  • 5 of 5
We loved this property and it worked perfectly for our group. We had 4 couples and the set up of the house, guest house and barn were perfect. While the pictures of the property accurately reflect the look and feel, it was much nicer than I had expected. The patio and pool area is beautiful and the perfect spot for the group to hang out together. Everything was clean and well maintained. If you are looking to be in the heart of town and activities this will not be the place for you but we loved that we were in the country. We truly felt like we were away from it all but driving to town and wineries was close and easy. Some of the group hiked and biked as trails were nearby. The bocce ball court was awesome and lot of fun.

Marybeth was great to work with and I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to go to Sonoma Valley. I would absolutely stay there again!

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).
