Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms , 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Sipping on a glass of wine, relaxing on the deck gazing at the lush vineyards below, surrounded by the tall forests of oak, fir and madrone trees in the lower foothills of the Napa Valley, just outside ST. HELENA, best describes life at EZ Valley Ranch. Tucked away on a private drive in this secluded setting in the country, yet only 5 minutes from the quaint town of St. Helena and fine dining or 2 minutes to the nearest winery . Our home provides the best of Napa Valley at your fingertips. (SEE PERSONAL PREVIOUS GUEST COMMENTS FOR GREAT PAST EXPERIENCES UNDER OWNER INFORMATION SECTION)

Completely remodeled in 2011, we transformed a simple ranch style into a serene Napa Valley Tuscan design home. We offer a gourmet kitchen, providing you with the ability to have delectable meals in your own backyard, The main rooms are decorated in a mustard gold with walls resembling the Italian villas in Tuscany. This theme is carried into the two bedrooms as well.. The master bedroom is done in soft cremes and rust colors accented with high gloss mahogany moldings, floors and furniture. The master bathroom also done in a romantic faux hazing of rusts and cremes accompanied by Tuscan marble design tiling, extra large glass enclosed shower and jacuzzi jet tub with french doors leading to the pool area. The second guestroom is designed in light sage and linen white, with white crown moldings, mahogany floors and white wicker furniture. The bathroom is done in mint green and white marbled tiling, large glass enclosed shower. Both rooms have walk in closets and french doors leading to the rear yard and pool area. Thruout the house are many french doors and large windows, providing views of the hillsides and vineyards around the property.

On warm days (usually 5 months per year), our courtyard patio invites you to have lunch or dinner on our teak table and chairs while listening to the babbling hillside rock waterfall or the soft music flowing thru the outside speakers. In the evening, treat yourself to a cozy fire in our antique outside wood stove in the courtyard patio, or outside living area gas firepit, roasting marshmallows for chocolate smores, along with a fine cabernet.

After busy days of wine tasting, biking or shopping in the valley, retreat to the pool area for a relaxing float in the pool chair, a nap in the oversized hammock or a massage in the bubbles of the hot tub with a glass of sparkling wine from one our renown wineries. After a fine dinner at one of our famous 5 star restaurants or possibly your own fine quisine from our gas barbecue grill, relax in our comfortable leather recliners for a viewing of the latest movies from Direct TV on our 42 in flat screen tv. Don’t forget at the end of the evening to take a moment to wander out on to the living room deck to view the stars with music in the background and of course, a nice sherry or port to finish the evening. Then it’s off to sleep in our comfy soft pillow top beds for a dreamy sleep, only to awake the next day and enjoy this wonderful Napa Valley Experience all over again.

Come visit us at EZ Valley Ranch and discover all Napa Valley has to offer. Our motto:

LIFE JUST DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER!

About Karen Zimmer

Eric and Karen with their 2 boys, moved to Napa Valley in 1984 Living in the country in the hills of Oakville, on a 10 acre ranch. Eric enjoyed 17 years in the wine business, Karen in the medical field, and our 2 boys participated in 4H , raising animals, football and basketball. After the boys left for college, we downsized to our smaller home in the foothills of St Helena. We decided to remodel our home for our future older age and spend the next few years traveling and visiting our grandchildren and enjoying all life has to offer. We hope you will enjoy our home and the wonderful relaxing lifestyle of our Napa Valley and all its beauty.

Karen Zimmer purchased this house in 2000

Why Karen Zimmer chose Napa Valley

Secluded on a private drive with sequoia, fir and oak trees surrounding the home, with vineyard views and yet only 5 minutes from St. Helena.. Location is in the heart of the gorgeous Napa Valley, close to restaurants & wineries, yet a hidden gem.

What makes this house unique

Close to the wineries, restaurants, views of the vineyards, privacy and total relaxation

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just stayed two nights over the weekend in this wonderful immaculate house. The owners Karen and Eric went out of their way to make sure everything was taken care. The house was in a great location and fully stocked with any and everything you need. We loved the hot tub and the sitting areas all around the house. It made it so pleasant to wake up and have a place outside to enjoy the weather and views. We will come back for sure.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the first time in February. Having traveled to the Napa Valley area four times previously, we were a little picky on where we stayed. This house was the perfect location for easy access to wineries and great restaurants! We didn't get to enjoy the outdoor space, due to the rain while we visited, but the house was clean and well kept! We watched the Super Bowl on the big screen TV with surround sound from the comfort of a LaZ-Boy recliner. We braved the rain a few nights to enjoy the hot tub, which was the perfect ending to a day of tasting. Karen was easy to work with and I highly recommend EZ Valley Ranch!

Immaculate, Great Location and Extremely Fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here last month and I will never stay anywhere else when we visit Wine Country. Karen is an absolute DREAM to work with and has thought of everything. She is extremely responsive, keeps the house incredibly clean and has done an excellent job with the decor. The house is so quaint and in an area that is really convenient. The backyard is sprawling and stunning with views of vineyards, lush trees and has excellent light. The pool and spa are terrific additions and made for a lovely time when we wanted to relax with a nice glass of wine. The beds are comfy, the kitchen is open and fun to cook in and no joke, she has thought of everything. A wonderful place to stay and so much fun!!!

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at EZ Valley Ranch for a few nights along with another couple and we loved the home and the location. It's so convenient to many of the wineries we wanted to visit and so nice to get out of the crowds and retreat back to the solace of this beautiful home at the end of the day. Every morning we would go for a run in the surrounding neighborhood and then enjoy a hearty breakfast in the fully equipped kitchen. We BBQ'd one evening and everything worked perfectly. The hot tub/pool is very enjoyable as well. We would definitely stay here again.
