About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to Winchmore House, a beautiful blend of Victorian and Craftsmen inspired architecture, located in Santa Rosa, the very heart of Sonoma County’s world renowned wine country with easy access to Healdsburg, Sonoma, Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Valley. Nestled along the banks of Spring Creek, our home offers something for everyone seeking a wine country vacation.

Santa Rosa provides the perfect hub for visiting more than three hundred Sonoma County wineries as well as easy driving distance to the Napa Valley, and only sixty minutes to San Francisco.

Within a 10 minute walking distance, you will find Montgomery Village with boutique shops, banks, a post office, a large grocery store and fine restaurants.

Our beautiful home offers a charming ambiance, while equipped with modern conveniences. Built in 1992, and recently updated. At the end of a private driveway, in a quiet desirable neighborhood, our home is situated on approximately one third acre of landscaped gardens and lawns and offers approximately 2875 square feet of living area. Nearby Spring Creek creates the backdrop for the gardens and plentiful mature trees.

Upon entering, via the large covered front porch, you arrive in the expansive entry hall with a grand redwood staircase and oak floors that continue throughout most of the first level. Beyond the entry hall, lies the living room with a wood burning fireplace, built-in bookcases and stately redwood columns. The large dining room with redwood paneled walls, features leaded glass windows looking out towards the back gardens and Spring Creek. The kitchen and nook area offer additional views of the garden and a lovely patio seating area accessible by two sets of French doors. The fully equipped kitchen has wide plank pine floors, stainless steel appliances, and a large butcher block island for easy meal preparation or gathering around for a glass of wine. Also on the ground floor is a large bedroom with a queen size bed conveniently located across the hall from the downstairs bathroom with pedestal sink, tub and shower. Near the bathroom is the laundry room with a full size washer and dryer.

The second level of the home offers three distinctive bedrooms; the first features a unique leaded glass window with a full size bed. Further down the hall we have the large, master bedroom with queen bed, as well as a romantic gas burning fireplace. The master bathroom offers two pedestal sinks, a large jetted tub, separate shower, a toilet room and travertine stone floors, as well as a large walk-in closet between the master bedroom and the master bathroom. The third upstairs bedroom at the back of the house overlooking the inviting gardens comes furnished with a queen bed, and is conveniently located next to the upstairs hall bath.

Our warm Mediterranean-like climate invites our guests to sit outside in the evening enjoying a wonderful home cooked meal with family and friends after a day of wine tasting. On Saturday mornings is the nearby Farmers Market with all types of locally grown fruits and vegetables, meats, fish and artisan cheeses.

Among activities for the children (or children at heart), canoeing on the Russian River, Safari West game preserve and Train Town in Sonoma, a 30 minute drive to the Sonoma Coast are a few of the many choices.

Guests may choose from a wide variety of acclaimed restaurants in the surrounding areas such as John Ash, Bistro 29, The Girl and the Fig, and many others.

We are centrally located within easy driving distance of the rugged Sonoma coast and the scenic Lake Sonoma. Go hot air ballooning, or just enjoy a good book in our garden.

Winchmore House has free high speed internet Wi-Fi access.

At night take in your favorite television programs on our large flat screen high definition TV.

We sleep seven comfortably but can accommodate up to eight.

Owners live in an apartment next to the house.

This peaceful setting is the perfect retreat for families, wine lovers and weekend getaways.

No parties of any type.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for our stay at your wonderful home. Our family enjoyed our visit with extended family from Spain. This is an ideal spot and was more than we expected. We hope to return again while visiting Wine Country, especially Malm Cellars!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the beauty of the house and the surrounding garden. A bonus was how quiet the street is. There were 7 adults for two days at Christmas and it was an excellent Christmas get-away. Enough room for all of us to lounge, to cook (loved the double oven!), and to eat and sleep. Jackie set up an extra mattress so the three single adults did not have to share a bed. She was helpful in directing us to a great hike at Spring Lake Regional Park and was quick to address one simple problem we experienced. I would recommend this house to everyone.

Perfect location, size and ambiance

  • 5 of 5

We chose this beautiful home for as a destination sight for a small celebration of life for my mother in law. We were coming from out of town so it sufficed for both housing and a gathering place for an afternoon lunch. It was perfect. It is clean, warm and well appointed with nice bed coverings and furniture. The hardwood floors are beautiful, both in the kitchen and common areas. The upstairs master has a wonder jacuzzi and also has a fireplace. With three bathrooms no one every had any problem accessing the facilities when needed. The flow of the house lends itself to people moving about easily and socializing privately and also joining in larger groups. Jackie and Marty, the owners were MOST accommodating and stayed very accessible throughout our stay in case we had any issues or needed anything. We texted or emailed with any questions and she got back to me immediately. This access made the stay really wonderful as our questions were quickly answered. The beds were also great. I am a picky sleeper and I can say these mattresses were great for a touchy back. We also had a family member with sleep concerns and they remarked also that they slept very well. DO pay attention to the warning about the gardeners coming on Friday morning, as they showed up with blowers a blazing and did a efficient job of keeping the lovely yard, lovely. The back yard is beautiful and gives the feeling of a country setting. A small- SMALL wedding would be perfect here. I am also a vacation rental owner and can honestly say this beautiful Craftsman style modern home met every critical part of my criteria. The people were great, it was very clean, well supplied in the kitchen, things were well maintained and my expectations for a warm and loving celebration gathering were met. BRAVO Jackie!!! You are doing it the way it is suppose to be done. A stay at the Winchmore House is a real treat.

Wonderful home to share with friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a nearby wedding and found it just the right size for two families of four. The kitchen is large and light and leads to a park-like backyard that is fun for kids to play hide-and-seek in. Everything in the house worked wonderfully and we would definitely rent this place again if our travels take us back to Sonoma County!

Perfect place to stay in the wine country.

  • 5 of 5

What a GREAT home! From the moment we entered the house, we felt at home. Seven of us were more than comfortable in this 4-bedroom, 3-bath home. The master suite is amazing, but then so is the kitchen, the yard, the whole atmosphere. One of the best stocked kitchens I've seen. LOVED cooking in it. Took advantage of the BBQ grill as well. The house was super clean and comfortable. Plenty of books (even some cookbooks!) to read by the fire or out in the garden. We were so in love with this house, we are seriously thinking of making our wine country visit an annual affair and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. It was hard to leave.

We based our day trips into the wine country from here and it was an easy trip in all directions. Santa Rosa is a great town. We took advantage of the Charles Shulz Museum and Russian River Brewery while here, as well.
