Private 60 Acre Wine Country Estate with a Pool and Vineyards

Property type estate
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Escape for the weekend or plan a family vacation at our private vineyard located in Knights Valley between Napa and Sonoma, world-class wine regions with hundreds of wineries, outstanding restaurants, and farmer's markets. Amidst it's mountain surroundings, our vineyard is only 4-miles from Calistoga at the north end of the Napa Valley.

Our 60 acre property is a working vineyard with 20-acres of vines lined by our own olive grove and apple tree orchard. We harvest the grapes each fall to make our own gold medal Lawer Estates wines. Wake up to the sun sweeping over the vines and go to sleep under the stars. Enjoy the pool with its sweeping view of the vineyards. Though it's private, you can easily grab local roasted coffee and breakfast just minutes away in Calistoga.

The original 1940s two story farmhouse on the property is custom decorated and has 2 bedrooms each with a queen size bed and 2 bathrooms. The fully stocked kitchen is replete with everything you need to make a gourmet dinner with local ingredients picked up during the day. The living and dining rooms (seats 6) are perfect to accommodate you during your stay. The adjacent cottage, which is always rented with the main house, and not separately, has 1 bedroom with a queen size bed, 1 bathroom, a kitchen, wood stove, and outdoor patio seating among the vines and olive trees.

Come celebrate holidays or special occasions with your family and friends. Start with appetizers outside overlooking the vines at one of the outdoor dining tables, play a game of bocce ball at sunset and toast the day with a great feast around the dinner table. In the fall, we encourage our guests to pick apples from the apple trees throughout the property.

Fly direct to the Charles Schultz Sonoma/Santa Rosa airport from Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, or Las Vegas on Horizon Air. Walk off the plane, drive 25 minutes to our private vineyard property, and you'll be ready to start your vacation - unless you decide to go wine tasting along the way. Alternatively, you may opt to fly into San Francisco, Oakland or Sacramento Airport and drive approximately 2 hours to the property. A welcome gift of our gold medal winning wine awaits you upon arrival.

Unique & exceptional Napa Valley choice

  • 5 of 5

The Vineyard earns very high marks from our family. It is a unique property perfectly suited for a family, couples or group of six. Convenient to Calistoga and the rest of the Napa Valley vineyards, restaurants and attractions the property itself is pleasantly guarded from any unwanted distractions. The main house and the guest house combine for ideal privacy and time together whether it's in the dining/living room, kitchen or on the porch. The owners rep is responsive, honest and easy to deal with. Highly recommended!

Cottage in the vineyard

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place. We loved the location in the hills above Calistoga, the pool, bocce court and well-equipped kitchen. The place had everything you'd want including satellite TV and internet (cell phone is spotty but feasible). if you like Calistoga, and we prefer it, this is a great place to stay. Taking morning walks through the vineyard and sampling the leftover grapes as we walked was a daily venture.

Overwhelming Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We had the honor of staying here for our daughter's wedding. Yes, it was an honor. The "Vineyard" is a truly wonderful experience. The drive up to the gates is the beginning of the fantasy of this property. Rows of grapes, labeled with their variety greets you once through those gates. There is a short drive to the most charming farmhouse. The pictures are accurate but they cannot portrait the feelings we had. Furnishings were so very comfortable. The beds heavenly and the baths were soothing. "Well appointed" will fall short if I used this to describe it. You will want for nothing. The grounds were meticulous. The pool area was serene, and easy to use.

Sitting outside, either in the chilly mornings or for a sunset cocktail, you will feel like you are in another country. I've been to Tuscany and the beauty of this area is more than comparative. Looking out the upstairs' bedroom windows in the morning you will see the fog beginning to lift up to the hills adjacent to the property.

As I mentioned, it was our daughter's wedding that brought us to Calistoga. The stay here added to a very happy time and most memorable experience. Maggie, property manager, was a gem. Her professional assistance with mailings we sent were greatly appreciated. This experience was positive from the beginning. Communications were prompt and exact. Directions were spot on.

The road to the property can be intimidating at first. My family insists we return to the "Vineyard" and stay no where else!

Wonderful Place to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday

  • 5 of 5

As a return visitor to this property, it was as beautiful as I remembered it 4 years later. Just a bit off the beaten path of Calistoga, it feels like you are transported to a peaceful sanctuary in the middle of beautiful vineyards. The other two couples with us said it was one of the best places they have ever stayed and we all agreed we wanted to move in permanently :) The house is equipped with everything you need (just bring your own food and drink) and well maintained/clean. We will definitely be back!

Vineyard Serenity

  • 5 of 5

The property is magnificent, immaculate, comfortable, beautiful, and the perfect rental for a true wine country experience. There's plenty of space for 6 people to spend time together as a group or relax away from each other. We enjoyed having a glass of wine in the many sitting areas on the property, dining outside near the vines, grilling and lounging by the pool, and walking around the well-manicured trails. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'd want to cook gourmet meals. The house is a quick trip to downtown Calistoga where you can stock up on everything you need, enjoy the restaurant scene, and walk around. There's limited cell phone service at the house, but the wifi worked great for us. The location is very quiet at night and we couldn't have felt more at peace. Our only regret is not staying longer. Next time we will!

Spectacular and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to surprise my wife with a stay on a winery. We could not have asked for a better location. It was beautiful during the day and exceptionally quiet at night - with stars everywhere.

We'd never been to Calistoga before - it truly was a gem and loaded with fantastic wineries. Calistoga is a few miles down the road so it's easy to head out for dinner or stock up on supplies - I'd vote for stocking up, as the scenery here is stunning. We rented a limo and cruised the wineries by day, then headed back to this peaceful oasis to eat in a beautiful setting.

We went with two other couples. There was more than enough space for everyone. However, I'd recommend grabbing the cottage - adding just a little more romance to what is already a spectacular property.

The only's a little bit off the beaten path - we drove past it twice and you will definitely need a car! But I absolutely loved it, as did our friends who came along with us. The property owners were super-easy to work with and even supplied us with some delicious family wine. Everything was handled easily and professionally. A real gem. I would recommend without hesitation.
