About Lindy Skye and Robert Schmitt
We both grew up in California, met in San Francisco, married and eventually moved to the Sonoma County wine country. Though our backgrounds include real estate development, clinical psychology, wine distribution, avocado farming and owning and running a bed and breakfast Inn here in the wine country, we fell in love with the hospitality business when we owned and renovated our first 1904 Bed and Breakfast Inn in Geyserville just down the road from 'Bramasole' in quaint little Geyserville then known as the Alexander Valley Wine Country Inn and now renamed the 'Bosworth'. We continue to appreciate what both our sister counties of Sonoma and Mendocino offer as we are so closely interwoven. We love living in the wine country and sharing what we cherish about this area of the country to people from all over the world. In 2014 we purchased a 113 year old landmark property that was a Victorian Italianate in Geyserville in Sonoma County, our neighboring county just a few miles away. Then in 2016, we sold the Inn. After the sale of our Inn, we discovered this spectacular vineyard view estate in Hopland just up the road from our old Inn in Geyserville and immediately fell in love with the location and the views! Now we look forward to sharing with others the spectacular beauty of what this area is all about! We know how rare it is to find such a property like this that can be shared with others to experience what it is like to live in the wine country of California. We know you are going to love it! We look forward to seeing you soon!

Why Lindy Skye and Robert Schmitt chose Hopland
The beautiful wine country and spectacular 280 degree vineyard views wherever you look! The close proximity to Jeriko, Campovida, Jaxon Keys and Brutacao wineries for all of the wonderful weddings that take place in the area make it convenient for those attending weddings. The easy 25 minute drive south to Healdsburg where 'it' all happens; special events like wine maker dinners, garden tours, wine cave tours, bakeries,shops, galleries, farmer's markets, events, music and film festivals, biodynamic organic farming, olive oil tasting, exploring the coast of Sonoma and Mendocino counties, kayaking, bike riding, running races, river rafting, day trips to the Giant Redwoods, touring the quaint New England village of Mendocino at the coast, exploring the historic Russian settlement of Fort Ross just a few miles south of Mendocino Village, clamming along the shore, and sight seeing all the way from San Francisco 1.50 hours south to the beautiful villages dotted along the coast line as you head back north up to Sonoma and Mendocino counties.
What makes this House unique
The spectacular and unsurpassed views that you won't find anywhere other than being on the coast. Being 5 minutes to most of the wineries nearby for those attending or participating in weddings or doing some spectacular wine tasting! Only 1.5 miles from the village of Hopland and Highway 101 so it makes it fairly traffic hassle free traveling either south to our neighboring Sonoma County or traveling southwest to Bodega Bay or west to Mendocino Village on the coast in comparison to the long lines and congestion that you often experience in Napa Valley. Though we love and appreciate the beauty of Napa Valley as well, it's popularity over the years has brought with it the frustrations of having to fight traffic and congestion forcing one to wait in longs lines in traffic and for tastings at the wineries which usually results in taking up much of the day. The wine country here in the 'north wine country' captures what most people want to experience when they come to tour the wine country of northern California. The wineries, the winding country roads, having close and luxurious hospitality for those attending the many weddings that take place here, meeting the local vintners, chatting with those that work educating you about the various wines that they cultivate. Most of the wineries in the area have a mix of both boutique and very large, with international recognition and are all within 5 to 30 minutes away. But here while you vacation in the wine country, our decks, views and property make it all happen. It is a very special place where you can relax and unwind and just take it all in at your own pace with friends and family. Ideal for groups of 8 and for those celebrating special events and wanting to have their special celebration or attend weddings at all of the beautiful nearby wineries like Campovida, Brutocao, Saracina, Jaxon Keys, Jeriko, Nelson Family Winery, Barra and Testa Wineries and so many more.

We had a wonderful time staying at the property and it exceeded our expectations. The place was spotless, well equipped and the views were out a painting.
Communication with the owner was fantastic and the icing on the cake was they left delicious food for us to eat.
We are so grateful for our time and will hope to return again!
Beautiful! Will be staying there again!
Hi - I stayed there 2 times. The first time was last summer with my daughter on her college tour, we toured Sonoma State Univ. Then again this last June with my husband during her college orientation. What a wonderful place! The house is immaculate, has everything you could possible want or need. The views are to die for! It's very easy to get on the 101 but feels far away from all the noise. The drive there is through lots of vineyards, and the Golden Rolling Hills of California. What a dream. Would like to stay longer next time! Thanks so much!
Thank you so much for your review! We are so happy you loved your experience here in the north bay wine country while staying at Bramasole! What a respite and treat for all of you while you toured the area and took a break from the San Diego area while touring for your daughters first year at Sonoma State University. We hope to see you all back and we are confident that Sadie is going to love her experience here in Northern California! Thank you so much again! Bramasole loves visitors just like your family! You guys were terrific guests!
Beautiful home in a great location in Hopland
House is nicely updated and well equipped for whatever your vacation needs. Kitchen is modern and equipped with high end appliances. Views of vineyards are stunning. Have not stayed in a nicer vacation home.
We are excited that you guys had such a great time with all of your friends for your reunion party. Robert and I want to extend our appreciation to all of you, you guys were such wonderful guests and we are so happy you all enjoyed yourselves at your reunion and just getting away from it all from your busy schedule in Mendocino! Maybe we shall see all of you back later next year for another get together! Thank you so much again for your thoughtful review and we are so happy that you all were able to get together and have such a wonderful time visiting and renewing old friendships!
All our best to all of you!
Bramasole in Hopland
Beautiful Place-Unparalleled VIEWS!
The place was immaculate! The views were amazing! The beds were great(& this is coming from someone who typically lives or dies based on whether its a tempurpedic or not).
Its a hop-skip from the Campvida and downtown. I would definitely stay here again.
If you have young adventurous kids (i have a 3 year old), i wouldn't recommend this place unless you plan on watching them the entire time as the decks are a bit of a risk there.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review Elijah! You guys were A+ guests and you left Bramasole in such immaculate condition which we were so appreciative of! We are very happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay while you attended the wedding at Campovida Winery and it was great that you were able to get a 4 day respite away from it all. It is wonderful isn't it that the winery is so close by and only about a minute away! It makes it so convenient for attending weddings like you and your family did. Again, thank you again and we hope to see you back again! You guys are always welcome!
The property is gorgeous and the host couple is so kind.
The home is beautiful and the property worked wonderfully for my family while attending a wedding here in Hopland. They left some produce in the fridge with drinks and snacks. They even bought us some eggs. We spent most of our time on the multiple decks with either a glass of wine or cups of coffee. Thank you so much for sharing your home.
Thank you so much Katelyn for your kind review. We LOVED the flowers that you left for us, it brought such a big smile on our faces when we walked through the door and we couldn't believe how neat and tidy that you left Bramasole, we were so appreciative of that and what great guests you were! We are thrilled that you loved the champagne, the wine and snacks that we left you as well for your enjoyment even the eggs! LOL! We could just picture you all, having your glass of wine on the decks and just taking the views all in after such a busy time preparing for the wedding and the big brunch that your sister was preparing for so many. We are happy that the wedding was such a beautiful event and we hope that at some point in time you all will come back for your own personal reunion again with family and friends.
Thank you again for being such wonderful, thoughtful guests!
Mackenzie and Robert
I was blown away by the surrounding views! I truly felt I had died and gone to heaven!
Beautiful property, super clean and most of all excellent value. If you need a tranquil place, this is it.
I highly recommend it, I shall go back again and again. Hard to find places like this to rent just for a few days!!!! Loved it!
Thank you so much for such a wonderful review of Bramasole! What fantastic guests you all were! We are so very happy that you all enjoyed yourselves and had such a great time with your friends reunion and making it such a meaningful trip for all of you. We hope to see you all back here very soon! Maybe next time you can catch that time you had hoped for to see the sights in Mendocino over on the coast! Maybe sometime over the summer or early fall? When it is in the 80s-90s- here it is usually about 25-30 degrees cooler there! We would love to see your group back again so let us know and we will make reservations for you at Spa Dolce in Healdsburg so you can all get massage and facials!
