The climate here in Wine Country is one of the areas many distinguishing features. We have stunning sunny and dry weather for most of the year, making Sonoma County so very popular with vacationers. People come to Wine Country to experience our local food and wine culture, as well as out stunning scenery, trails and mountain biking.
Choosing Wine Country Retreat as your vacation home will allow you to experience Wine Country the way the locals do. Jacqui, the owner of this property is forever visiting the local wineries and collecting free tasting vouchers for her guests to enjoy.
Jacqui was born and raised in East Lothian Scotland. She had a very successful career in the travel and tourism industry in Edinburgh for twenty five years! In 2009, Jacqui, her husband Andrew and their two sons were given the opportunity to move to Sonoma County and the rest was history!
The whole family fell in love with this stunningly beautiful part of California and wanted to share it's beauty with their nearest and dearest. When choosing their new home, they decided to buy a property that would allow for just that. Nestled in the beautiful Skyhawk area is their home with Wine Country Retreat, right on the property.
Jacqui Smail purchased this cottage in 2009
The moment I saw this property, I knew it was the one for us. It was love at first sight. I never tire of the location, the mountain views, or the bright airy feel. The choice of food and wine options are endless. We love how close it is to Annadel Park and Spring Lake where we enjoy walking.
The location of Wine Country Retreat is superb. The open views are quite stunning and the host is so friendly and welcoming. The property is spotlessly clean, the linens are of superior quality and the space is bright and comfortable.
Wine Country Retreat has only been open since May 2014 and already I have stayed twice! I have family in this area and come to visit often, but like my own space and what an adorable space this is. If you are looking for a charming little guest house, that is very clean, in a great location and with a delightful host. Then this is the one for you.
The Wine Country Retreat is a light, airy, and super clean cottage. The huge deck has a view of the beautiful California hills, and in just a short walk are more pastoral views. The cottage is perfectly appointed and very nicely decorated. And it's quiet! Jacqui has thought of everything to make you comfortable...from the comfy bed to big thick towels and comfortable livingroom furniture. She strives to make you feel welcome without disturbing your privacy. I highly recommend the WCR for people looking for a quiet, suburban retreat with lots of nearby sightseeing opportunities.
Stayed here as a base of operation for going to Bodega Bay and then Sonoma and Napa Valley wine country. The apartment was very comfortable and cozy. Great part was sitting on the backdeck to watch the sunset and enjoyed talking with Jacqui and Andrew, they were great hosts!
We look forward to coming back.
This is the perfect place for vacationers or visitors here for other reasons. This apartment is very comfortable and well equipped. It has many cozy touches to make you feel at home. It is in a neighborhood that is great for walks and taking in the beautiful views of the hills. The Wine Country Retreat has its own spectacular view! It is in a very convenient location. I can't say enough about Jacqui, who is conscientious and friendly, and her polite family. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
We needed a short term rental while we moved into the area. This was the perfect solution. Jacqui and her husband were wonderful. We stayed a month and had a lot of privacy and the apartment was comfortable and easily accessible. She knew we would be staying longer than usual so changed the chairs for a comfortable sofa/love seat before we arrived. It was very thoughtful. I give it a "highly recommended" rating!!
Lovely, comfortable place with a charming, helpful host, Jacqui. It met every expectation and need. I recommend it highly for a quiet retreat with wineries nearby
We needed a place to spend Christmas week near our daughter in Sants Rosa. The wine country retreat was perfect for us. It is cosy and warm with thick carpeting, comfortable bed and everything you need in the kitchen supplied. The owner is very thoughtful in outfitting the cottage with more than you will need like extra glasses and cups, towels, pillows,etc. She even had a Christmas tree up and delivered some home made cookies. I was able to host a dinner and overnight for my sisters too, plenty of room. We will definitely consider staying here again on our next visit, a great home away from home.
