Property type estate
Minimum Stay 2 - 5 nights


About the property

Tranquil 1-acre property with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms only 2 miles from Square

Welcome to The Fir & The Fig!

We are set on a private road 2 miles east of the Sonoma plaza and walking distance or a short bike ride to some of California's oldest and best wineries. Our location is in the heart of the wine country and only 40 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge. We're on Sonoma's coveted east side so Napa is easily accessible in 15 minutes drive. You can start your day with a drive to Napa or just enjoy the laid back historic wineries all around you in Sonoma. We are uniquely positioned with wineries all around on old country roads so minimal traffic. This offers a unique opportunity to tour the area by foot or on bikes. There is a great article on our direct website along with a map with more details. Our favorite mode of transportation is cruising the bikes to a couple wineries en rout to the famous Sonoma plaza which offers an abundance of tasting rooms, 5 star restaurants and great markets. The plaza also hosts many great festivals throughout the summer and fall so you never know what you might roll up on.

Now that you know what's around us let's talk about the great property you would be enjoying when you're not out and about. We just finished major renovation in 2013 so everything including the beds are brand new. We have a large hot tub just off the back deck that overlooks our brand new in-ground swimming pool. The pool features an auto-cover and solar heat which keeps it very comfortable for at least 6-7 months of the year. We can monitor the heat remotely, and if needed, we can use our gas heater to get it to your desired temperature in the off-season. There will be an additional charge if gas heat is desired. We have just completed our new bocce court and installed new landscaping for 2016.

About Chris

We live in the Bay Area and fell in love with Sonoma's east side over the many years of renting homes. After a long search we finally found the place of our dreams here on Sonoma's east side. Looking forward to retiring here one day.

Chris purchased this estate in 2012

Why Chris chose Sonoma

We love accessibility of this property from the Bay Area but yet how far away you actually feel. It's the perfect escape to enjoy peace & tranquility without the long travel time. We especially love the ability ride bikes or walk and enjoy nearby attractions without getting in our car.

What makes this estate unique

Location, location, location! We love the secluded feel of our property while being such close proximity to so may great wineries and the Sonoma Square. This is a property for those that enjoy peace & tranquility. It is not a suitable location for groups that want to party into the night.

Perfect Wine Country Getaway at Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

Perfect property for my 40th birthday weekend. We had 5 couples and all felt very comfortable. The new renovations to the cottage were lovely. You can tell that the owners really care about this place. The pool, hot tub, bocce, and game-room kept us entertained when we were not out exploring all the nearby wineries and Sonoma town square. We can't wait to come back.

Gorgeous home! Perfect for a getaway.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better house to stay at for a weekend getaway. It was perfect for our large group and had plenty of space for all of us to be more than comfortable. Gorgeous landscape and multiple sitting areas to enjoy the weather and scenery were perfect in the morning with coffee. The owners were extremely responsive. We'll definitely be back!

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Traveling with a group of 10 girls and this place was perfect! Everyone could sit around the table or hang out comfortably on the couch. We really appreciated the fully stocked kitchen and all the GAMES! Hosts were totally awesome - very responsive, gave excellent recommendations, and so thoughtful as they left us meyer lemons and kumquats from the trees outside! Beds were comfortable and home was clean...couldn't ask for much more! Thanks again!

This was a great home to stay in with a large group of friends! We had 5 couples from Anchorage, AK and Phoenix, AZ. We were all able to spread out comfortably but also come together for breakfast in the big open kitchen every morning. It was well equipped with everything you would need. We also enjoyed the evenings hanging out together in the awesome game room after a fun filled day of wine tours.

Beautiful Property and Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful home for 4 nights during my sons wedding. The location was perfect for us to easily get to the square and wineries. We loved riding bikes and leaving the cars behind. We are a group of 11 and felt very comfortable with adults and kids. The house was clean, spacious, and plenty of room for our group. You can tell that the owners spend a lot of time here to make sure the place is dialed in for their guests. They had recently completed a remodel on the cottage which was amazing with a large shower. The grounds were spectacular and the pool & hot tub were awesome! They have lots of floats and toys for the pool along with a great outdoor shower. The kitchen was spacious and well stocked with essentials and plenty of cookware. The game-room kept us entertained at night which was great for interactive family fun. We can't wait to come back.

Beautiful Property and Perfect Place to Celebrate New Years!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent 4 amazing nights at The Fir and The Fig over the New Years Holiday. It was the perfect place to bring in the New Year. The owners were wonderful hosts and went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for our stay. The newly renovated cottage was so adorable and included a beautiful walk-in shower. They also have a killer outdoor shower that was my favorite after morning hot tub sunrise sessions. We thought the location was fantastic. We were able to walk to several of the nearby historic wineries and down to the town square. I highly recommend checking out the Bubble Lounge at Buena Vista. It's a very unique experience in the oldest winery in California. It is a lovely part of wine country. I can see what Maura & Chris fell in love with this area. We hope to be back again next year when it's warmer to enjoy the pool and ride bikes.
