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.

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.
We had the best time at this Sonoma get away. We will definitely be back! There is so much in walking distance and retreating to the pool just made it the perfect spot to spend time with our best friends. Bob was a great a host, we felt as if we were staying with a friend.
We stayed at the Sonoma Farmhouse for a girls' weekend and had a wonderful experience. A group of us rented the main house and the back cottage. It's perfectly located within walking distance to Sonoma Square and amazing restaurants, and it even has its own little vineyard vibe going on in the back yard. We spent Friday afternoon lounging on the back patio enjoying our own private wine and cheese situation before walking into town for dinner. Went wine tasting all day Saturday, then came back and stayed in to make our own meal. On Sunday we enjoyed coffee on the patio overlooking the beautiful backyard -- a totally relaxing weekend! Such a great VRBO find. Would definitely recommend to anyone! Thank you for making it a special weekend.
We had a lovely stay here. The house and grounds are beautiful and very well kept. We only wish it had been warmer so we could enjoy the pool more.
The house is in walking distance to restaurants, grocery store and wine tasting. We parked and never moved them the entire weekend.
It was the perfect place for our mom's getaway.
Sonoma Farmhouse Ranch is located just a short 2 block walk to Sonoma's historic Downtown Plaza. The Plaza offers world class restaurants, shops, museums, galleries and winetasting rooms.
