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.

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!
This is a beautiful, comfortable house for a weekend away. There was plenty of space and the owners were easy to communicate with in planning the trip. The neighborhood isn't remarkable, but there is a grocery store nearby and a park nearby that we walked in every morning before heading out to wine country. I felt the queen in the master was very comfortable and I slept well, but I dont think every one felt the same about the other beds. We loved our stay here!
House is very clean and well kept. Comfortable and roomy. Perfect for large families, or girls get away. Owner very accommodating. Beautiful backyard and patio area. The house only has a TV in the living room area, the suggestion would be to provide a TV at least in the master bedroom.
I stayed at the house with a group of friends so we could tour some local wineries. The homeowner was so pleasant and responsive before our arrival, and the home is so charming! The backyard is definitely the highlight - we had dinner on the patio each night. I definitely recommend the property.
I live in Santa Rosa and rented this home for my sister-in-law's family when they came to visit. Working with the owner, Jackie, was an absolute delight and she couldn't have made anything easier or more welcoming. Upon seeing the home, my first impression was that the house is larger and more beautiful than I expected from the photos. The outdoor area is stunning and all of the bedrooms are very large and well-equipped. Finally, the location is outstanding. I would absolutely rent this home again for any future visitors, especially families or large groups. Below are the comments from my sister-in-law and her husband:
This house was perfect for our family of 6 - we had a super luxurious and comfortable time, and could hardly bear to leave for the rest of our trip up the coast to Sea Ranch!
We traveled from the UK for a 4 night stay and we were totally relaxed here. The girls had a room each, the boys shared the downstairs room (with a pull out mattress on the very spacious floor) and we had a wonderful master bedroom. The beds were comfortable, and there were copious fresh soft white towels supplied in every room. The master bedroom en suite bathroom was fabulous, and the kitchen had every possible piece of equipment and extra you could wish for. We loved the fairy lights outside in the yard, and the grill worked very well.
We felt completely at home and very well looked after - thank you so much for a gorgeous stay.
We loved the house and it was perfect for our trip! The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious and we enjoyed the back patio with all the trees and gardens. I contacted the owner several times and she always responded promptly. Thanks for making our weekend stay memorable!
We visited the Santa Rosa area for a wine making class and found this wonderful gem situated close by. Large open floor plan. Awesome kitchen to cook all our meals. All the pictures capture this wonderful place. Jackie was a great host and was always there if we needed anything. Highly recommend booking this place. We will be back.
We are in the heart of wine country with 300+ wineries close by.
