Why stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast when you can unwind at Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch, a private, luxury Sonoma vacation rental property, right in the heart of California wine country? Situated just a short two block walk from the historic Sonoma Plaza, this recently renovated mid-century classic California Ranch home provides the comforts of a cozy and private wine country retreat and getaway.

The home is situated on one half acre of land, providing visitors with charming gardens, expansive outdoor entertaining spaces and a new 15' x 35' inground salt water pool with solar heating, volleyball net and automatic cover.

Great location & beautiful yard!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being able to walk to the square and parks. The house was perfect size for 2 couples. Nice that each bedroom had its own bathroom. Too cold to use the pool, but would love to spend time enjoying the backyard. Will stay here again if we get back to the area!

Great location great home

  • 5 of 5

This was such a special stay. Beautiful, comfortable home. The location was perfect. The restaurants we ate at were excellent. One of our wait staff told us you have to look hard for a bad restaurant. Bob was very accommodating. He was just a text away although I never needed anything. We will be back!

Very nice little house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is charming, comfortable and has all the equipment you need. It appears recently remodeled and is well decorated and very clean. The grounds and pool area are very attractive and well-kept. The owner was very helpful and friendly, and responded very quickly to email. He met us at the property to welcome us. The location — just a couple of hundred yards from Sonoma's main square and restaurant area — is hard to beat. Walking and biking trails start at the street corner and bike rentals are just around the corner. The booking and security deposit refund process is a little cumbersome but worked smoothly enough. We would definitely consider this property for a future trip.

Perfect location. Everything you could possibly need is available here. The back yard/pool area is absolutely beautiful. Bob is great to work with; just sorry we didn't get to meet him. Next time...

Sonoma Ranch House

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

The ranch home was perfect for us, two adult couples. Very close to the plaza in walking distance. Excellent restaurants and shopping. The ranch home was very nice and well equipped. The backyard was amazing even though it was too cold for us to use the pool. We would highly recommend this home for a visit to Sonoma. The owner was very nice as well and his assistant Mary.

Law School Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Had an excellent three nights here for a wine tasting weekend with four women. Walked to town for take-out to enjoy with a bottle of wine by the pool one night and walked into town for dinner the next. Also walking distance to a lovely bike shop that sent us out on a tasting-tour of the local vineyards. Property was clean, well-supplied, completely updated, and extremely convenient! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
