Originally built for two families, wine country getaway is perched on Trinity Mountain overlooking Sonoma's beautiful 'Valley of the Moon'. Open the front doors and you are hit with a magnificent view, maximized by picture windows and an expansive deck.
The generous living room has high beamed ceilings and opens up to the dining room and full kitchen, creating a spacious, cohesive environment. The living room has a 70' flat screen TV with DVD player, satellite TV, and Sonos stereo system. The dining room has a table that can accommodate 10 people. The deck off the kitchen has a gas BBQ grill. Free wireless high-speed internet is available throughout.
The home has two wings off the main living room, with each wing containing both a master and large guest bedroom. All four bedrooms have stunning views, king or queen size beds, private bathrooms, and sliding doors that lead out onto a deck. The two master bathrooms have dual showers and the guest bathrooms have shower/tub combinations. Three of the four bedrooms have walk in closets.
The swimming pool is a short walk past the grape vines and garden. It is surrounded by another oversized deck appointed with plenty of lounges, chairs and sun umbrellas. The pool overlooks the property’s 200 olive tree orchard and another spectacular mountain/valley view. From the pool or the main deck you can enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning as you watch the valley below wake up, or a glass of wine at the end of the day as you watch the sun sink below the mountains and witness a breathtaking sunset.
With a beautiful drive in either direction, you are 8 minutes from the Sonoma Valley and 18 minutes from the Napa Valley. From this dazzling property you can take advantage of all the activities, sites, wineries, and restaurants the wine country has to offer . . . or simply come and relax. Great for families, couples, company retreats, or a guys/gals weekend away, and just an hour from San Francisco. Please note, weddings and loud parties (of any type) are not permitted at this property. Due to the configuration of the driveway we do now allow 'stretch' limousines to come to the home.

The home is owned by two families who live in San Francisco. The families have kids who were young when the home was purchased and who are now all in college. The home is managed by another family member who lives in a separate home on the property. The family all participate in gardening and other projects around the house when they visit, as well as in the yearly olive harvest which yields around 500 pounds of olives and makes some of the best olive oil ever.
The Owner purchased this house in 1994
We wanted to find a wonderful home that was close to San Francisco yet felt like it was a world away. We have discovered and love the little town of Glen Ellen and are great fans of the Sonoma Valley.
We (three couples) spent a week in this absolutely wonderful home. The views are simply spectacular, the house was clean and comfortable, and Jan and Robert were great to work with. We all had plenty of room and a fourth couple would have been easily accommodated. This was the best stocked house we have stayed in. Everything we needed was there and easily found. The location was perfect for visiting wineries in Sonoma and Napa. Trinity Road turns and twists but is easily traveled as it becomes familiar. Best place ever!
Very beautiful had a great time will come again!
This is the second time we've stayed at this home and it never disappoints. The setup is perfect for our group of four couples and the location is ideal for our winery visits and to race day at Sonoma. Jan is wonderful and always responds immediately, not that we've ever had a problem. We will use this as our base camp for years to come!
We rented the house for a week for a three couple get away and wine tasting.
The house is very spacious, has awesome views, excellent pool and is a very relaxing home.
The weather was perfect everyday and we enjoyed being pool side daily after tasting wine and shopping. The sunsets are amazing from this "Top of the World" location along with the spectacular views of the marine layer over the valley every morning.
All bedrooms were very spacious, well stocked and with each having its own bathroom and outstanding views.
Our group has already agreed is we're we will be staying on our ne t trip to wine country. Jan and Robert were great from time of booking thru checkout.
Thank you both for such a wonder stay.
We had a fantastic stay at this property. It was perfect for our group of 8. We will definitely come back. The owners were wonderful to work with, attentive and responsive.
This property is amazing. Everyone in our group (6 adults) had a great time. The house was big, spacious, and private with everything we needed. Kitchen was very well stocked and plenty of linens. The views from deck are spectacular - a perfect place for a glass of wine in the evening watching the sun set. The drive up/down the mountain is not for the faint of heart. The pool was amazing and plenty warm enough this time of year (August). Our group is already planning our return trip next year!
This area contains some of the best WINE TASTING and WINE TOURING in the world both in the Sonoma and Napa Valleys.
