Overview

Santa Rosa Studio Rental Photos and Description

Studio + Convertible Bed, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2-4

Wake up to a colorful sunrise as it peaks over the rolling hills across from this studio’s scenic location. Or gaze out on the magic of an enlarged moon as it rises over the ridge, illuminating the hobby Zinfandel vineyard outside your window. Enjoy the rustic surroundings by day as you sip a glass of Sonoma County wine while relaxing in the gazebo outside your studio door.

Any time of day, you’ll love the view from Sunrise Ridge Studio, Santa Rosa’s newest accommodation for your party of 2-4 guests. Whether you’re traveling for a Wine Country getaway or planning to visit friends and/or family, you’ll enjoy the vistas, tranquility and natural surroundings of Sunrise Ridge.

Completely remodeled in June, 2014, Sunrise Ridge Studio is close to town and shopping, yet feels remote and part of the natural surroundings on a country lane just outside of Santa Rosa.

Attached to the main house but with the privacy of a separate wing, Sunrise Ridge Studio offers you a wonderful escape in the heart of Wine Country. The studio is equipped with a full kitchen, queen-size bed and double pullout sofa-bed as well as private bathroom. Like most quality vacation rentals, Sunrise Ridge offers the conveniences of home, including all furnishings, kitchen appliances, towels and linens, wireless Internet, cable TV, DVD player and more.

Central to the charm of this delightful unit is the beautifully sculpted and well-maintained grounds. With the vineyard in front, the back yard features a fountain, fire pit, gas BBQ, picnic area and gazebo, and offers both lounge and dining furniture.

Gavin Park is 3 minutes away, and includes the 18-hole Bennett Valley Golf Course as well as driving range and tennis courts. The award-winning Matanzas Creek Winery is just 5 minutes away.

With its location just 3 minutes from Hwy 12 and 5 minutes from Hwy 101, Sunrise Ridge is ideally located. It affords guests with the convenience of staying in Santa Rosa and ready access to hundreds of wineries and other Northern California destinations. A quick half-hour drive, and you will be in Sonoma or Healdsburg, and it’s under 40 minutes to the Russian River, redwood forests, Bodega Bay and the stunning Northern California Coast. Napa, the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco, Marin County, Oakland and many other parts of the Bay Area can be reached in under an hour.

Hosted by owners Jim and Kathy Gehrs, the studio is managed by Tim Smith, who also manages another successful nearby Santa Rosa vacation rental. He and the Gehrs are committed to creating the same quality experience at Sunrise Ridge by providing an exceptionally clean, well-stocked and well-appointed guest unit.

Please note that there is no smoking inside the studio, and the no-pets rule is firm—sorry, no exceptions.

About Tim Smith

Why Tim Smith chose Santa Rosa

Location. Location. Location! The Gehrs originally bought this property for the amazing views, and because it offers a tranquil, remote experience but is still within 2 minutes from stores, restaurants and civilization.

Perfect cycling getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I journey'ed down to Santa Rosa from Montana for her Spring Break from Grad School. It was a great break from the less than lively landscape we have going on at home. Everything was green and colorful with amazing landscaping in the yard. Pictures of the studio are 100% accurate and the owner was very friendly, while still respecting our privacy. The location was a quick drive to downtown for dinners out, coffee shops, and errands. It was also easy for us to get around to some of the ideal cycling roads in the area. While we aren't avid wine drinkers, we appreciated to wine country and did get out for one day of tasting and a winery tour over in Glen Ellen, which was a short drive away. We'll definitely return to this spot in the future.

Excellent location and great value!

  • 5 of 5

The Sunrise Ridge Studio is the perfect home base for your time in wine country. The studio is in a lovely area of Santa Rosa that allows for easy and convenient access to everything (shops, restaurants, highways, etc.). Not only is the studio in a great location it is also clean, furnished nicely and well equipped with all of the supplies that you'll need during your stay. The studio is quiet and private but Jim is a wonderful host who gives you privacy if that's what you want and is also available for a friendly chat. In addition, Tim is wonderful to work with for booking arrangements - he is extremely responsive and on top of every detail. I would highly recommend this property - we will definitely stay here again when we return to Santa Rosa!

Best Retreat Ever

  • 5 of 5

Think perhaps this was the most relaxing vacation my husband and I have ever had. This was our first trip to the wine country and we loved being able to travel 30 minutes to the Pacific and 30 minutes or less to wineries, and then come back to what felt better than home (no one really knew where we were!) and have peace and quiet surrounded by beautiful scenery. The property definitely has a country feel and yet it is no more than 10 minutes to grocery stores and restaurants in Santa Rosa. I stopped in the authentic Italian deli one day on my way to town which proved to be a lesson in Italian hospitality. It was great to enjoy morning coffee overlooking the distant hillsides...emerald green right now, with songbirds and a bright red breasted hummingbird dive-bombing the vines surrounding the vineyard. The kitchen was very well-equipped for cooking and the studio is more spacious than the pictures appear online. It is so many decorative touches with tasteful artwork and lighting. Great linens, bath, and thick cotton robes. The manager and owner are both very warm and welcoming and have equipped the studio with every convenience. The place was spotless and the grounds are extremely well manicured. Thanks for a wonderful, much needed retreat and we would love to return!

We agree with 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our respite from family visits and sight seeing in Sonoma County at this hidden treasure of a getaway. The studio is romantic, private, and the kitchen is wonderfully equipped for cooking light meals. It is easy access to 101, 12 and downtown Santa Rosa yet right on the edge of some beautiful countryside estates and roads. Lazzini's authentic Italian deli is right down the road. We especially enjoyed morning coffee on the bench overlooking the small vineyard and distant hillsides....visited by hummingbirds and a variety of songbirds. Our only hesitation about leaving a five star review is that the spot will become too booked to reserve it again. The manager, Tim, and owner, Jim were most accommodating and warm. Thanks for a wonderful week! Hope to return!

perfect home base

  • 5 of 5

We just wrapped up a four night stay at the studio and it was the perfect spot for our home base while in Sonoma County. The studio has everything you need to make the stay nice, including peace and quiet. Was great to have the essential cooking spices in the kitchen as well as lovely robes in the closet- details were not overlooked. Booking was great and Tim helped us out when we had our dates wrong. Very appreciated!

We traveled the area while there and one thing we discovered is the 'back way' to the town of Sonoma via Bennet Valley Road and Arnold Drive is amazingly scenic and much more enjoyable than highway 12. Also if you are looking for a good workout in-between wine tastings and overeating at amazing restaurants, I would suggest hiking Hood Mountain up to Gunsight Rock Overlook- great hike and easier to start at Sugarloaf Ridge State Park. Great trip, great lodging...we will be back!

Wine Country Studio

  • 5 of 5

The studio was just right for a couple to get away. The studio was outside of the city yet minutes away from restaurants and downtown Santa Rosa. The studio was very nicely decorated and had every thing we needed in the kitchen. The back yard was really nice. Great landscaping! The owners paid attention to detail and had a complementary bottle of wine for you when you arrived
