About Mark Berry

Partners Mark Berry & Rob Akins moved from San Diego to Forestville and bought an old apple farm to fulfill their dream of growing olives and making olive oil. Inspired by the beauty of Sonoma County, Mark & Rob have planted out their two acres of heaven with ornamental and vegetable gardens, hidden walk ways, fruit orchards, olive groves and open meadows to delight the eye and stimulate the senses.

Mark Berry purchased this cottage in 2002

Our stay at the Carriage House was spectacular. From the carefully curated list of restaurants and wineries to visit, to the personalized information card, our hosts thought of and executed on every detail. Thank you so much; we can't wait to come back!

Perfection

We had an absolutely amazing stay at the Carriage house. The place itself was amazing down to every last detail. And the property was gorgeous. Mark was a wonderful host, and provided great recommendations for wineries and restaurants.

We loved our stay. Can't wait to go back!

Peaceful Wine Country Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I shared a perfect weekend recently at The Carriage House. It was so peaceful with the olive grove in the day and the stars at night. The daybed on the deck was the perfect place to enjoy the yogurt and granola in the morning. The daybed under the pergola in the middle of the grove was great for relaxing in the afternoon. We took a self guided tour of the gardens and grove that was delightful. The olive oil tasting and wine with our hosts was the cherry on top. I hope we get a chance to come back again. This would be a great place to celebrate an anniversary or simply take some time way from the chaos of everyday life to connect with nature and each other.

Oh! I almost forgot to mention the pool! It was a particularly hot weekend when we were there, and the pool was great. I didn't want to get off my floaty bed to go home.

Well-appointed, comfortable, private getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the Carriage House. We stayed at fancy hotel in Healdsburg last year, which had its own appeal being walking distance to things, but the Carriage House felt more private and relaxed. The spacious living room provided a nice separate space where this early riser could lounge and read with my coffee while my wife got a little more shut eye. Mark set us up nicely with a little continental breakfast for the first day, although we had brought our own. We'll likely return next fall. (Note the main, single story house is adjacent to the Carriage House, but since the Carriage House is on the second story, it feels private and has a nice view of the olive grove.)

Prime Place on Poplar

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this property. It is very comfy and well appointed. Plenty of room and comfort for a couple looking for a getaway. You can spend all of your time here and have a great time. There is a grocery near by if want to stock-up and just hang. Or, you can use it as your home base for touring wineries. There are so many great wineries within a short radius. The logistics are easy. Either way, this is a great price performer. We were very, very happy with it.
