California Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We just loved the house. I went there to celebrate my 30th birthday with my husband and 4 other couples. The house was amazing, so beautiful and so much room. The kitchen was amazing, so much fun to cook and eat together. It was close to all of wine country and within 3 miles of a Redwood State Forest. It had a pool and hot tub and in the garage there was a game room. It was perfect for a large group, with 3 total kitchens and enough beds to sleep 28 people. Just know that some of those sleeping spaces include pull out couches and bunk beds/day beds. I would definitely love to stay again!

Great spot in the heart of Sonoma!

  • 5 of 5

Thirteen of us recently rented the house for our annual ladies wine weekend. It was conveniently close to several wineries and a grocery store for our food needs. We had a large group but there was still ample room for all of us to sleep comfortably and tables we could move together to dine as a group.

We did have one issue with the pool when we arrived but I contacted David and he very quickly contacted the pool service company. They were out to fix the issue soon thereafter. Working with David was a breeze and he was very responsive from the time I inquired about the house until to the day we left.

Highly recommend this property!

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a great group weekend at the Valley Lane rental in Guerneville. The home is beautiful, has good spaces for groups to eat and hang out together, kitchen is well stocked and large enough for multiple people to be in, and the outdoor space can't be beat! We would definitely return to this home.

Perfect Place with Lots of Natural Light!!

  • 5 of 5

The house worked out perfectly for our preschool staff retreat. The staff enjoyed the warm sunshine coming through the huge living room windows and the view of redwood trees through the dining room windows. The well-maintained landscape and the vegetable gardens made the outdoor areas very inviting. We picked fresh mint from garden to make cucumber and mint water and lettuce to go in our sandwiches. The manager of the house was helpful and provided prompt replies and assistance when I called about one of the showers. We had a great stay and look forward to returning to this lovely home.

Fantastic quiet house with lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for a large group of people looking to visit the area. The large number of bedrooms means many people can sleep comfortably and you're just minutes away from Armstrong woods. The pool and game room are great amenities.
