CENTRAL SONOMA VALLEY WINE COUNTRY HOME IN EXCLUSIVE BONNIE GLEN NEIGHBORHOOD

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.

Amazing Location, Fantastic House

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this Bonnie Glen home for a family get together over Labor Day weekend and could not be happier with our decision. The house is the perfect size for a large family with 2 living rooms and a huge yard including a pool and a hot tub. We made good use of the kitchen and found everything we needed. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and spacious.

One of the best parts about this home is that it is as convenient as it gets. The house is literally a few feet from the main Sonoma highway, with a few wineries actually walkable. Sonoma town square is only about 5 minutes away and you are no more than 30-40 min from Napa, Russian River, and Alexander River Valleys which is incredible.

We would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend in Sonoma or needing a home base for exploring wine country.

Wonderful family house

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fantastic week here and couldn't have been happier. From the perfectly heated waters of the pool and the therapeutic bubbles of the hot tub to the hand picked vegetables from the garden and the excellent movies on-demand, our family was able to successfully disengage from the hectic chaos of the city. The accommodations were top notch and my wife and I haven't had such peaceful nights' sleep since our honeymoon in 2008 (details of that aren't appropriate for this review). Our girls thoroughly enjoyed splashing in the European style bathing suit optional pool. My wife and I found the subtle waters of the hot tub paired with a delicious pinot to be the perfect night cap each evening. We had one day of rain interrupt our week long visit with Mother Nature but found a cupboard full of backgammon and connect 4 to satiate our family's competitive needs. Furthermore, the two car garage was an excellent place for our daughters to ride their scooters during the intermittent downpours. After a week at this Eden in Glen Allen, my two daughters, wife and I felt ready to conquer preschool, online merchandising and high tech sales respectively.

Exceptional Large Country Home Rental

  • 5 of 5
Our large group was in town for a convention for a few days and we just so happened to discover this lovely country jewel. This beautiful country home exceeded our expectations in every way and we found our stay to be extremely memorable. We're certain future visitors would agree. Aside from the abundance of space inside the home, the back yard area is extremely spacious as well, and features a variety of fruit trees and other vegetation offering privacy and tranquility. We enjoyed both the pool and hot tub during our stay and found the size of the back deck to more than accommodating for our large group to have an awesome back yard barbecue. I would highly recommend this rental to others.
