Sonoma County House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)


The best endorsement - we get repeat visitors!

Centrally located in the beautiful Chalk Hill Appellation, behind a private driveway gate, right next to world-famous Chalk Hill Vineyards, minutes from Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, Dry Creek, Alexander and Napa Valleys, this new 900 square foot cottage of cedar and stone sleeps four and boasts brand new top-of-the-line appliances and accoutrements.

Chalk Hill was one of the earliest appellations established in Sonoma County. Stretching northeast from the town of Windsor, the Chalk Hill Appellation benefits from Russian River silts as well as a warmer, drier climate than the appellations in western Sonoma County. The well draining chalky hillsides of this Sonoma County appellation are particularly suited to the cultivations of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay and, Cabernet Franc. Chalk Hill is also home to an African game preserve, specialty nurseries and a private Olympic-class equestrian arena (built by a local winery owner), making it a great choice for San Francisco wine country tours.

The view picture is taken from approx 100 yards up the private road from the cottage.

Why John Klein chose Sonoma County

Sonoma County is to California what California is to the rest of the nation... meaning that California has a bit of everything in it, great weather, the oceans, mountains, and valleys and, Sonoma County has a bit of all that. Years ago, I was checking in with security for admittance to the trading floor on the Chicago Merc... The guard who, was 85 if he was a day, was issuing my credentials and asked where I was from. When I said 'Sonoma County', he paused, slowly looked up at me and said, reverntly, 'ah, God's Country'.

Central location in Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the "country" location, with convenience to restaurants, shopping, etc. Walking distance to Chalk Hill winery.

The home was charming and the amenities were more than satusfactory. The owner was very responsive to our only issue (coffee out of stock).

Great Stay at secluded cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage on Chalk Hill Road. It was Great for my wife and I in terms of overall space/comfort, but would have held at least two more people easily. The cottage was nice and clean with nice furniture and amenities. The deck and outdoor areas looked wonderful, but we didn't get a chance to enjoy them much because of our schedule. The cottage is about 5 minutes to windsor and 15 to healdsburg so the location was great. The property being gated was also a nice perk and definitely gave us a greater comfort level. We truly enjoyed the cottage and look forward to staying there again in the future.

The Perfect Getaway - John Klein is an amazing host!! The cats, adorable!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to start out by saying John was an exceptional host!! He was so kind as to go out of his way and buy a taillight for my car, which had burnt out…and he fixed it by the time we returned from our outings that 1st day!! This Chalk Hill home is an excellent location in the heart of the wine country. It’s close to Healdsburg, Russian River Adventures, Mugnaini cooking school we attended and many delightful wineries we enjoyed. Not far from Sonoma Square where we had a relaxing day at the Spa and a wonderful Mexican dinner. The property sits in a peaceful and quiet location, surrounded by lush grapevines as far as the eye can see. We found the home to be much more roomier then the pictures show, very clean, equipped with 2 BBQs, an outdoor pit fire and a great outdoor area to sit, relax and enjoy a glass of wine. The bed was very comfy after a long day on the river and the kitchen was stocked with everything you need (3 different coffee makers to select from…and the coffee was good)! We had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends. It’s the perfect getaway!! I will be renting here again soon. Thanks again John, you are truly the best.

Perfect Spot. Perfect Home.

  • 5 of 5

Chalk Hill Cottage is a perfect place to spend your nights when in the wine region. The location is excellent. The setting is gorgeous. The home is well appointed and well-equipped. If I am back in the region I will definitely want to stay here again and will be very disappointed if I cannot.

My ideal wine country cottage

  • 5 of 5

The owner was helpful with the reservations.The directions were easy to follow.Located in Healdsburg,our favorite wine country destination.We are clean freaks and this place was spotless.The size was more than adequate.The nights were cool but there was a gas fireplace to warm both the temp and the atmosphere.The bed was memory foam of some kind(soft and comfy)Berber carpet through the living and bedroom areas.The kitchen was modern with more appliances than we cared to use,but there if you wanted to cook.There were so many good restaurants in town so we opted for the lazy but oh so tasty version.There is a great bakery in town for breakfast,good coffee and croisant sandwiches.We tried Willies and Valete for dinner andcan recomend both. Willies was a noisy small plate joint with fresh seafood and Valete was a bit more refined.Bring your favorite wine for a corkage fee and you'll save a bit of dough!Check in and out was a breeze.I will never stay in a hotel in wine country again.We absolutely loved this spot!
