Carol Beasley purchased this house in 1999

What makes this house unique

The Grape Escape sits on it's own BioDynamic vineyard with panoramic views of the beautiful Dry Creek Mountains. The Grape Escape is unique for many reason but most for its location. The Grape Escape is just down a private country lane about five minutes outside of Historic Downtown Healdsburg and within minutes of three of the Wine Countrys most sought after valleys,the Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and the Russian River Valley.

Beautiful Setting!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five women from the east coast rented the Grape Escape as our home base for a wine country excursion. Happy to say, we had a great time! The house is not only gorgeous on the outside, but also spacious, beautifully appointed, and very comfortable on the inside. When we walked in we were greeted with a bottle of home-grown Zintensive Care and a vase full of Calla lilies from the garden. Then we looked at the rest: The fully-appointed modern kitchen, the roomy bedrooms, and the three full baths. Everything we needed.

In back there was a porch, patio, hot tub, and lots of seating to take in the view during the day, and the stars at night. The property is on acreage, and was perfect for taking daily walks down the long driveway and out to the country road. We were surrounded by rolling hills, gardens, and grape vines everywhere. In fact, the owners, Carol and Virgil, grow Zinfandel grapes on this vineyard land for one of the nearby Dry Creek wineries--and make a pretty fine private label, too!

Our hosts live just down the road, and it was a pleasure to meet them (and their dog Kallie) and talk to them about the area. Carol gave us good advice on local wineries and restaurants in Healdsburg and the area(along with places to avoid), and Virgil wowed us with a fantastic private barrel tasting and tutorial in his "cellar." The two of them really made the trip so memorable. Cheers to them! Hope to be back someday..

Paradise in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

Three of my girlfriends and I rented this beautiful home for my 50th birthday celebration. As the other reviews suggest, it is even better in person than what you read on the website. The weekend could not have been better as the home was spacious and cozy, very warm and inviting. Carol, Virgil, and Kallie the dog, were there to greet us with a bucket full of wood for the wood-burning stove. After a quick tour, we settled in. It was nice to know that they were down the driveway in case we needed anything. We had planned to cook most of the weekend, and the kitchen did not disappoint. There was every possible utensil one would need for gourmet meals. It was a joy to wake up after a restful night on the comfy bed, and look out at the vineyards and orange trees. Since it was a little cool, we were able to fully enjoy the hot tub also. One of the highlights of the weekend was the barrel tasting with Virgil and learning about his wine-making process. The home was a very short drive into Healdsburg, and close to all the wineries that we wanted to visit.

I hope to come back to the Grape Escape someday, and I have been recommending it to many of my friends if they want to spend time in Wine Country. Debbie from Chicago.

Second Time Better Than the First

  • 5 of 5

Five of us returned after a very comfortable experience last year. This year, because we knew what to expect, we were better prepared to take advantage of the property's amenities. The hosts are personable and genuinely desire guests to have a memorable and trouble-free stay. Our group has been coming to the wine country for over 20 years and we are always looking to enjoy a mix of the best from past experiences along with something new. This year our timing was perfect, with the Beasley's offering an impromptu invitation to join in a club wine pressing and sample blending.

The property is accurately represented by the owners with the description and pictures here and, when reading others' reviews, the comments are spot on what you can expect. It is a quiet, very comfortable, well appointed property that is conveniently located to some of our favorite wineries and restaurants in the Sonoma Valley. We're certain to be back for a third stay!

Wonderful and Relaxing 50th B-day party

  • 5 of 5

Grape Escape has it all - close to town and great restaurants but on a beautiful vineyard with wonderful owners. And the house is just perfect! Our group of 7 gals felt we could spread out and enjoy each other's company with many varied seating areas, four areas to sleep, and 3 bathrooms, and a gourmet kitchen. I really think it's even better in person than in the pictures. Carol and Virgil are fantastic hosts, provided everything we could possibly need for our stay in a well-stocked home, and were very gracious as well. We have already recommended it to friends and look forward to our return!

What a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

Just five minutes away from downtown Healdsburg where our daughter got married and yet in the country, surrounded by vineyards, grass and flowers. The house is even better than what is on the web. Big widows all around and especially in the kitchen and breakfast area where it was a delight to cook and for the family to gather. Outdoor dining was lovely. Not one thing was missing. We had such a wonderful time that we would have extended our stay if the next tenants had not moved in the day we left. Thanks Carol and Virgil.
