Incredible views, peaceful setting

My husband and I stayed at Le Vin for our 6 day visit to wine country. While we usually stay in Guerneville, we decided to branch out this time and try Le Vin - so glad that we did!
First, I will say that if you are looking for granite counter tops and Egyptian cotton everything, Le Vin will not be the place for you. It is not brand new and it does not have 'everything' that you would find at a luxury hotel. In addition, some of the amenities are a short walk from your living space - pool, sauna, hot tub. However, none of that bothered us a bit. If you are looking for a thoughtful, clean, well-equipped place to stay that will provide you with some solitude, this is the place for you.
We spent a lot of our time out on the patio that is behind the living space. It was so peaceful to see the fog roll in every morning as we sipped our gourmet coffee that is provided by Eric and Holly. Returning from the wineries each day, we chose our favorite bottle from that day's outing and enjoyed the picturesque views with some snacks. We also took the time to walk the property - majestic oaks at the top of the winery make the effort worthwhile!
We found the location of Le Vin did not limit us at all. Indeed, we visited the Fort Bragg coast (Botanical Gardens were fantastic!), Napa, Sonoma, Guerneville, Kenwood, Yorkville, etc. While we did try to make it back in time each day to enjoy the views, we also decided that cooking dinner at home would help us to avoid the windy roads after dark/dinner drinks! There is a grocery store relatively close by, as well as take-out from various spots along the way home.
I was nervous after I initially booked the property because I thought my husband might think it was too rustic and off the beaten path. However, in the end, we were both thrilled with our week of solitude and plan to return to Le Vin in the future. :)
Owner's Response: We feel so blessed to have such lovely guests expressing how much they enjoyed their time at Le Vin. We enjoyed the private wine tasting we had with you. Le Vin is for the adventurous souls who like to commune with nature, and experience their inner sanctuary in the peaceful, quiet, and beautiful natural setting. Also a quick jump into some of the best wine regions in Northern California. We would love to have you return here in the future. We do have Egyptian cotton sheets.
