Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Secluded 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 spring of 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 County

We love accessibility of this property from the Bay Area but yet how far away you actually feel. It's the perfect escape 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.

It was perfect for my 70th birthday weekend. My children and grandchildren loved the pool and all the different spaces to play in.

Great house, good location!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this house for our trip to Sonoma. It was a quick Uber from the Sonoma square and we were able to visit easily visit vineyards in both Sonoma and Napa. The house was cute and definitely has been updated nicely to accommodate guests. The rooms in the main house are preferable to the ones in the guest house. We had some trouble regulating the temperature of the shower in the guest house, but the people staying out there just showered in the house. The house is set up nicely for games and hanging out outdoors. However, I would warn anyone that they seem to have trouble with their neighbors and they were very strict that we were not allowed to play any music outside the entire time. Originally, we thought this was just during the "quiet hours" after 10pm, but we were wrong. On Friday evening we had some soft music on around 6pm while we were having cheese and crackers outside, and within a few minutes the neighbors called the owners to complain. The owners give you 30 minutes to respond (thankfully I checked my phone around minute 20) and if you don't respond the neighbors will call the cops and the owners will take your *entire* security deposit. So, renter beware. If you don't care about being able to have music outside, it's a great house. If you're looking to enjoy any type of outdoor music I would pick another location. After the stay I went back to see if anyone else has had this problem, and I noticed there hasn't been a review in almost 6 months so perhaps it's a newer issue, but it's certainly something I wish we had known before we went.

Great for a family visit

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house at the very start of the pool season. We took advantage of the option of asking the owner to heat the pool before we got there. That turned out to be fantastic, as the kids could play for hours in the pool although the outdoor temperature was only in the 60s. The adults could keep an eye on the kids from the hot tub or patio. Both the game room and the outdoor play areas were a big hit for our group too. The location is in a nice and quiet neighborhood and it only took us a few minutes to drive to downtown Sonoma. The only slight drawback was that the bathroom in the guest house was very tight, but the bedrooms were great and the main house was very well stocked with everything we needed. We would definitely want to stay at this house again!
