Glen Ellen Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

5-BR, 3-BA with pool on stunning 1.4 acre grounds in lovely Glen Ellen

DESCRIPTION

Spacious indoors and out, a dining room and two large common rooms with masonry fireplaces offer gathering places to relax and wind down after a full day with a meal and fire. But honestly, the daytimes here are the stunner. The open indoor/outdoor format allows you to flow back and forth between climate controlled comfort and swimming in the large custom inground pool, perusing the many flower gardens, picking fresh produce from the edible garden in the back, lawn games, al fresco dining and refreshments on the deck, decompressing in the hot tub, or just letting the warm sunshine wash over you in one of the chaise loungers until you enter a Zen-like state. Time spent here will restore you.

Location? The heart of Sonoma Valley wine country. Several wineries are walkable, and dozens more are within a 5-10 minute drive. Hiking, biking, and picnicking in Sonoma Valley Regional Park, as well as guided nature walks in Bouverie Wildflower Preserve, are both a mile away. Charming downtown Glen Ellen is 1.5 miles down a country lane. The entrance to Jack London State Park and amazing hiking, picnicking, and historic buildings are two miles away; guided horseback riding is also available. The renowned Sonoma town square is 7.5 miles down Highway 12. Glen Ellen and Sonoma both offer great restaurants, Sonoma a wider selection. Your spirit of adventure will be met in full by the world class recreational activities at your fingertips.

The house itself is remodeled with abundant light from skylights, picture windows, and sliding glass doors. Almost every room has views of the lush, private back yard with extensive lawn, mature trees, and flowers in bloom most of the year. The house has 3 full baths including an en-suite master bath.

Lovely home with beautiful outdoor aspect. Loved the spaciousness of house and garden. Wonderful for family vacation. Very good quiet location yet accessible to village shops and wineries.

Lovely wine country home!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our yearly girlfriend getaway. We were a group of seven women, and there was plenty of room to spread out throughout the house. There is a hot tub on the deck, and a large pool, which we didn't use due to the time of year. We found the location to be perfect! Our Platypus wine tour van picked us up right at our front door, and there were plenty of wineries within a couple minutes drive in any direction. There are also hiking trails within a few minutes drive as well for those in need of exercise.

We had some trouble with a blown fuse which the owner fixed promptly. There were a couple of other minor glitches that we didn't consider a big deal. We never figured out how to turn on the upper oven, and a few girls expressed a desire for more towels. Other than that, we were very satisfied! The pantry and refrigerator were well stocked, and there were ample dishes, utensils, and pots and pans.

I would definitely recommend this house for couples, girlfriend getaways, and for families (kids would love the pool in the summer). Thank you for a great stay!

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This house is exactly what you want when you come to wine country. It's nestled among beautiful trees and landscaping. A pool. A hot tub--even a garden to pick fresh tomatoes! Then inside there's plenty of room to share good time with your family and friends. After a day tasting, it was a restful retreat. I started my days sitting on the back deck, drinking coffee and watching the sunrise. It was majestic and peaceful. Thanks so much for sharing this property with us!

Amazing Girls Weekend in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our group. We spent most days hopping from winery to winery, but were happy to come home early to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this home. Robert is so easy to deal with and was easily accessible when questions arose about our visit and about the house. We have been coming to Glen Ellen for 6 years in a row and I think we finally found our "home away from home." Plenty of space for our group to spread out and not feel like we were on top of one another. Great location for visiting Sonoma County wineries and even close enough to spend a day in Napa. Clean, well supplied and homey.

Excellent location and great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Great house for a large group or family. The backyard/porch is fantastic and there is a lot of privacy, great for cooking out, eating outdoors, etc. And the location is perfect for anyone wanting to be close to some great vineyards (Benziger, Imagery and BR Cohn were some of our favorite stops during a 4 day tour of the area and all very close to the house). Highly recommended and Rob was very helpful and always responsive to any questions we had before and after our stay.
