Sited on a sunny ridge on over three acres with heirloom apple trees, towering redwoods, and organic gardens, this peaceful, tasteful country retreat is close to Pacific Coast Beaches, wineries, Osmosis spa, and gourmet restaurants.
You'll arrive to find fresh eggs from our chickens; enjoy picking your own vegetables, fruits and herbs in season from our organic gardens.... Relax in a hammock and watch the hawks circle overhead....At night, you may hear owls and coyotes who make their home in the 60 acre forest adjacent to our land; stars twinkle in a truly dark sky.
The vacation rental space features soaring 12' high wooden ceilings, slate floors, original artwork and solid wooden furniture designed by the owner. The spacious living room with wood stove, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom all look out over a sunny patio and redwood glen. The sun-drenched patio overlooking redwoods offers a perfect place for outdoor dining.
West Sonoma County is renowned for its miles of protected Pacific Coast Beaches, Sonoma Wine Country, the Russian River, apple orchards, redwoods, organic family farms and some of the best cycling in California. Our property is minutes from Pacific Coast beaches, gourmet restaurants and wineries. Osmosis Spa and the villages of Freestone and Occidental are right down the road. Great vintage and antique shopping abounds in the many local boutiques.
Home to the husband-and-wife artist team of Wowhaus, the property offers a contemporary artists’ twist on the traditional family farm - a place where growing and making are part of daily life.

We are a husband-and-wife art/design team who work in studios on the property adjacent to the vacation rental; we'll be happy to show you work in progress if time allows.... Scott is an accomplished woodworker and Ene is an avid organic gardener. Ask us about our favorite cycling and hiking routes, wine country day trips, and the many unique nurseries and farms to visit in the region...
We were struck by the friendly, open quality of the West Sonoma County community - avid winemakers and chefs are friends with surfers, ranchers and organic farmers...At night, the quiet, dark sky is filled with stars, a true luxury. Landscape painters and nature photographers seek out this unique landscape for its natural beauty; come visit and you'll understand why.
West Sonoma County is the undiscovered Wine Country....we love the rolling hills and unspoiled countryside dotted with farms, the redwood forests and Russian River - perfect for cycling and hiking, and all only 10 minutes from Pacific Coast Beaches. Doran Beach, 10 minutes away, is dog friendly and sought out by bird watchers and surfers alike. Osmosis Spa, just down the hill in the village of Freestone, has a beautiful Japanese Garden along with relaxing spa treatments; afterward, stop at Freestone Bakery for fresh-baked wood-fired organic bread. We love sharing our favorite bicycle routes, organic farm tours, and, of course, restaurants and wineries that abound here.
My boyfriend and I have stayed at Wowhaus twice and can not get enough of it. From the moment we arrived, we've felt completely relaxed. The setting - open orchards (where we picnicked) and redwood forest - is beautiful. The art and furnishings are cool, modern and calming, and the owners are GREAT, very helpful and knowledgeable about what to do in the area (we've become friends, and made dinner for them at the cabin during our second visit). It rained during part of our first visit, and we were so happy to be hanging out by the fire, feeling like we wanted to be nowhere but our cozy home. The second visit we did a lot of hanging out by the fire, too, but we also went out and explored. There's a TON of stuff to do in the area: amazing bakeries, wineries, hiking, the beach, the river, and lots of little towns to discover. Wowhaus is really wonderful. It's close to so much, but like us, you may never want to leave!
Ene and Scott's property is located in the most convenient of locations, allowing easy access to the adorable towns of Sebastopol and Occidental, as well as the beautiful Bodega Bay beaches.
The unit was just right for my husband and I and our 2 German Shepherds (which must be kept on leash at all times on the property). A fully stocked kitchen allowed for easy meal prep, thoroughly enjoying the truly fresh eggs delivered from Ene's hen house. The entire place was spotlessly clean, warm, and cozy.
Situated in the middle of a grove of peaceful redwoods, we are excited to return to the property during the summer in order to better enjoy relaxing outside in the sunny field.
Ene has gathered such helpful knowledge about the area and local excursions, making everything about the weekend completely simple.
I highly recommend making this a home base for your Sonoma County adventures.
This delightful holiday spot was immaculate and beautifully furnished. The hostess was most accommodating. I highly recommend this country home to anyone looking for a quiet getaway.
I can't say enough about our stay. What a peaceful, beautiful and serene setting, what wonderful and caring hosts, comfortable and homey rooms. We loved it! We had to make some last minute arrangements so that we could visit with our children and grandchildren and the hosts were very warm and accommodating, even fresh eggs in the morning. The grounds are so fresh and green and just what you would expect in that neck of the woods. Unfortunately the weather was wet and cold so we couldn't spend much time outside on the deck but it must be great in the Spring, Summer and Fall. We hope to visit again. Thanks again for sharing your home with us.
Wonderful location, great hosts, very comfortable with everything you need. Actually more spacious than it appears in pictures. Plan to return!
Staying at this little guest house was more like being a personal guest of the owners! We stayed 3 nights for a wedding at a nearby ranch. Ene went out of her way to accommodate our little family. She even moved a small mattress into the bedroom for our 11 year old daughter who wanted to sleep near us and had it completely made up upon arrival. She offered to help with laundry, invited my daughter to garden with her, tour the ranch and let her feed the chickens. The house is lovely with great style. Private and beautiful little outdoor area for having meals al fresco. Very peaceful and lovely setting. Only wish we could have stayed longer and explored the beautiful area. Thank you!
