About Barbara Lehman

Joe and Barbara love to cook, entertain and travel! You'll find Joe on the property daily, maintaining his orchards and planting his vegetable garden. Barbara loves hiking with her dogs in the surrounding hills, or planning her next dinner party! They are world travelers and love to pick up treasures wherever they go!

Barbara Lehman purchased this house in 2009

Why Barbara Lehman chose Novato

After years of searching, Joe and Barbara discovered this three acre property in 2001, and knew this was the ideal spot to build their dream house. A few years later the guest house was added where the original 1925 farmhouse sat along the creek side to complete the estate. This historic property offers the best of all worlds...it's easy location offers quick freeway access to surrounding areas, yet it is completely private. A Spanish country retreat right downtown!

What makes this house unique

The property sits on a sloping hillside offering views of the headland mountains, and yet is completely surrounded by trees for privacy. The guest house is open to nature, so the deer, turkeys, and even an occasional fox can be seen from the windows.

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5
Thanks for letting us rent your home. We had a great time in Novato, California. Your home being centrally located to many things to do in the Bay area and wine country made our trip extremely easy to commute. In addition, we were more than happy with the condition, comfort and beauty of your home. I will strongly recommend to anyone I know heading your way to rent your home as to renting a hotel room.

Simplly Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5
This property was the first stop on our first official family vacation (and first time using VRBO). We have 4 kids-- ages 11, 9, 7, and 4. What an amazing experience we had!! Barbara was wonderful to work with, (and our kids loved meeting her dog!) :) The house is stunning, and was absolutely wonderful to stay in. We were not there long enough to really take advantage of all it had to offer, but the kitchen was top-notch and the master bedroom shower was absolutely AWESOME!! The kids each had their own beds, and my husband and I loved sitting out on the back porch at night to unwind. It was very conveniently located, close to grocery store, restaurants, etc. We would absolutely stay here again!

Perfection for any taste!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, and extended family, including grandchildren stayed at this fabulous home this summer as a sort of family reunion get together. We all had cars, rented or owned, so we could all be as independent as we wanted. We wanted a location that would make it easy to get to all the favorite places that everyone should visit when traveling to Northern California. First, the home is spectacular! It is clean to a state of perfection. Everything in this home is state of art and high quality. The kitchen is designed for a master chef. The bathrooms are finished with beautiful granite and tile. Every room is spacious and private. The decor is elegant and tasteful. It is a grand home. It is ideally located in a gorgeous and quiet setting. It is close walking distance to town but is off a mountain road/street that has very little road traffic. So it is very private. One day we drove 15 minutes to Larkspur. Parked and took the Ferry to San Francisco. We spent a fabulous day on Fisherman's Wharf and the Ferry Building. We caught the last Ferry ride home after a late dinner. The view of the City was breathtaking! The next day we travelled 30 minutes to Healdsburg, visited the wineries and had a wonderful lunch on the square. The next day we travelled through Sonoma and the Napa Valley. It was best that the wine country has to offer. Some of us even visited the hot springs of Calistoga-there we took mud baths and had massages! This is an ideal home and location for anyone that wants to visit all the counties in one visit. We even had family members that opted to stay at the home to just relax or take a hike in the local hills that you could walk to. Another member of our family opted to take his mountain bike to Mt. Tamalpais and hit the mountain bike trails which are abundant. There is so much to do. Thank you very much for the wonderful and unforgettable memories that we shared in your beautiful home!!! We will be back!

Luxury and comfort midway between SF & Napa

Luxury and comfort midway between SF & Napa
  • 5 of 5
We found this lovely, comfortable and well-appointed guesthouse a delight to call home during our stay. We wanted a place from which we could easily travel to both San Francisco and the Napa Valley, and this beautiful home fit the bill perfectly. The travel time to San Francisco was about 30 minutes, and about the same to Napa. You can also make a day trip with ease to Point Reyes, Muir Woods, and many more picturesque spots along the coast.

The pictures on this site represent the property well – it is spacious and uniquely decorated to a very high standard. Groups up to six will feel extremely comfortable due to plenty of spaces to stretch out and relax, including on the three patios/balconies. We found these perfect for enjoying the cool, breezy evenings and the passing wildlife – we saw wild turkeys and deer every evening we were there.

The house itself is clean and well-equipped with high-end appliances including a full size clothes washer and separate dryer, two dish-washers, microwave, 5-burner stove, oven, artisan dishes, and every kitchen utensil you could need. Some other highlights include a huge soaking tub (with unlimited hot water), giant walk-in shower, comfortable beds, large dining table and a cozy fireplace.

The town of Novato has ample food and shopping available, and a cute downtown with browsing shops and unique eateries. We especially enjoyed the Rustic Bakery.

The owners are very easy to work with, and communication was quick and efficient. We would recommend this home to our family and friends.

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5
We (3-5 adults) stayed a week and enjoyed every minute we were there and I must say we were sorry to leave! The house is situated in a very quiet peaceful setting just on the edge of the town. It is beautifully appointed and the bathrooms are to die for! The bedrooms were tastefully decorated with super comfortable beds. We ended up eating in every night, which was not the original plan, but after long days of sightseeing - Napa, Point Reyes, Muir Woods, and golf, when we got home we just didn't want to leave. We were also treated to 2 deer and 3 wild turkeys, the male of which put on quite a show... right outside the back door! The gourmet kitchen is equipped with everything you might need and the open concept was extremely inviting. We were most intrigued with the dining table...if you go, take a close look to see if you can figure it out. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lehman's Lair!

Gorgeous Guesthouse!

  • 5 of 5
This is an ideal location! Our group of five stayed at this beautiful property last October while visiting San Francisco and touring vineyards in Sonoma and Napa -- a perfect retreat between both.
Situated near the main estate, the guesthouse feels private and peaceful nestled in an orchard setting with views of the mountains. We took our morning coffee out on the deck, listening to the creek and basking in the sun.
The spacious interior is gorgeous, with unique furnishings and decorating. We enjoyed the open layout for our group -- imagine cooking in the gourmet kitchen with a crackling fire going in the greatroom (while wine-tasting!). With french doors opening to a little balcony, the master suite has a spa-like master bath . . . the soaking tub was great after day-hikes or mountain-biking in surrounding hills.
We can't say enough about the hospitality of the owners -- they will make your stay a delight (we loved picking pomegranates from their orchards)!
A gem!!!
