About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (6- 8 People max) 5 min from Ledson Winery!

We are just 5 minutes from the wonderful LEDSON winery and castle, perfect for picnics and wine tasting. Please read our reviews, they speak for themselves! This home is perfect for mature couples, families with kids, multifamilies, reunions, or an adult retreat. With 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, this luxury 2900 square foot home is located in a quiet neighborhood, on a hill-offering beautiful mountain and distant vineyard views. The house is only five miles from the heart of Sonoma Valley wine country, with famous wineries including Ledson, Kunde, St. Francis, Matanzas Creek, Chateau Souvreign and Paradise Ridge. Our home is conveniently located near the highly regarded scenic Highway 12, which will lead you to Kenwood in 5 minutes, and Sonoma Square in 25 minutes. Each guest is greeted by a personal concierge who will answer any questions you have about the house and your stay and will offer a chilled bottle of wine upon arrival!

Our gourmet kitchen is well loved by many of our past guests (see reviews). We have Thermador professional grade cooktop, a convection oven/ microwave, plus two additional ovens, two dishwashers, and a subzero refrigerator. The kitchen is beautifully apppointed with granite counters, brazillian cherry cabinetry and maple hardwood flooring throughout. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the basic cooking ingredients, spices, oils and utensils. Perfect for those of you who enjoy cooking. In the bedrooms where each room is themed, you will find European Cotton, 500 thread count sheets,(We received tons of compliments about how comfy our beds are) and iPod docking stations/alarm clocks. In each bathroom, we have wine country soaps, lotions, as well as Shampoo and blowdryers. The Master Bedroom, with dark hickory wood flooring, and beautiful artwork, has double french doors opening to views from both sides of the room, with a bathroom that has a double head shower, a large 2 person soaking tub and heated tile floors.

We have a play structure for the kids, and 2 outdoor eating areas to seat 8 people. One is a BBQ area with views off the deck, the other is a relaxing gazebo area. The house backs up to Howarth and Annadel parks, as well as Spring Lake, which are sought after by the locals for challenging mountain biking trails, with great areas for family walks, hikes or jogging. You can also rent Kayaks at the park and Kayak through the lakes. For those with kids, you can walk to the park in minutes where you will find a train ride, carousel, horse back rides, and a petting zoo in the summer months. Less than a mile away, you will find a quaint plaza with Mary's Pizza Shack, The Union Hotel Restaurant, The East West Cafe (which serves a great breakfast), and an old fashioned movie theater. Further down, you will find Montgomery Village with its fabulous coffee shops, restaurants, a yogurt parlor, and unique shopping. For those who like to walk, you can walk to Union Hotel restaurant (awesome Italian food), a yogurt shop, and a starbucks-- less than a mile away.

The house is perfect for anyone who appreciates electronics. It is equipped with an amazing indoor/ outdoor sound system (dock your ipod, or use our ecclectic CD collection) that can be heard at the BBQ area and Gazebo; as well as throughout the house. We have a Bluray player which will allow you free access to Pandora Radio, and you can listen to virtually any type of music. Each area has it's own volume control, so rooms can be turned up, down, or off, to tailor to your personal preferences. House has 3 Tv's, 2 of which are brand new high def, and 3 dvd players.

Be sure to enjoy our amazing and private tree lined hot tub with a glass of wine, at the end of those longs days of sightseeing! We even have a couple of robes to snuggle up in.

For those of you big city folks, San Francisco is an hour south, and Bodega Bay ocean with it's gorgeous coast line is just 35 minutes from here. There is so much to do! Use this home as your headquarters to all of Northen California wineries. We are close to EVERYTHING!!

Please remember that if you would like me to assist, I can arrange a limousine wine tour of the closest wineries, as well as an in -home massages, or...private catering. I have reliable and wonderful connections in these areas and would love to help you plan that special weekend! I can also arrange daily gym passes to a fitness club if that is your desire.

We have a limit of 8 people per visit due to the common courtesy of our neighbors, so no large parties, or receptions.

Keywords: LUXURY HOME! This is truly a great home. In a beautiful park like setting just minutes from famous wineries, Glen Ellen, Kenwood, Healdsburg, and Sonoma. You can make this your headquarters for wine tasting as the location is right at the beginning of the Highway 12, which is a designated 'scenic route' that is sprinked with some of the best wineries: Ledson, St Francis, Kunde, and Chateau Souvreign (these wineries are less than 10 minutes from the house). This house backs up to Howarth Park, and is adjacent to Annadel park - both are nature reserves with sought after biking and running trails. The house has a play structure for the kids, and is ideal for adults, friends, and families. We also have a beautiful tree lined, hot tub area with complimentary robes, for end of the day relaxation, and 2 outdoor eating areas, 2 grassy areas, and a Gazebo.

About Lisa

My husband and I moved to Santa Rosa, in 2002, and immediately fell in love with this house. We enjoy being right in the middle of wine country, with all its nature and beauty. We began raising our kids here and chose the home because of all the nature around us, its proximity to the beach and Annadel park reserve, San Francisco and of course very easy access to all of the regions beautiful wine country. We decided to keep this lovely home, and our goal is to make it wonderful for your stay!!! This is why I strive for ONLY FIVE STAR REVIEWS!!!!!

Lisa purchased this estate in 2002

What makes this estate unique

The location of this home is perfect because it is close to the amenities of a city, and also right in the heart wine country. We are five minutes from the first winery, (Ledson), and five minutes from my favorite locally supplied market (Olivers). I love the privacy and views this home offers!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We had such a wonderful time during our stay for the Levi's Gran Fondo cycling event. The house is amazing and the views are incredible. 5 star accommodations and our only regret is that we could not stay longer. This place books quickly for a reason as its one of the best places available. Hope to stay here again in the future if we come back to Santa Rosa.”

A lovely Week!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful home! The location was so convenient to wineries, shopping, dining, etc.. Many of our group are big cyclists and they came expressly to do lots of riding-- and that they did! Tons of great riding right outside the door. We took daily walks in the expansive and lush park right across the street. So pretty!!

Thanks so much for the opportunity!

Comfortable upscale

  • 5 of 5

This is our second consecutive year staying at Lisa's home for our girls' weekend. We were drawn back because of the well appointed large kitchen, comfy, cozy couch in family room to sit chat and drink wine, and its proximity to Annadelle Park. The four of us get together once a year to reconnect and although we have plans of going out on the town, this home kept us in and comfortable. The entrance to Annadelle Park is steps from the front door. Each morning or whenever we were able to pull ourselves out of the house we would go for runs and walks through the park.

The two queen beds and king bed was comfortable and we felt well rested, which can be tough away from home. We meant to use the hot tub but we were too caught up in chatting and drinking and we were so comfortable we didnt make it out there.

We would love to come and stay again!

Great Place and Great Host!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our guests were all very comfortable in this spacious house. We found everything attractive, very clean and well maintained. And, this house has the best kitchen we've ever experienced in a VRBO home and we're frequent VRBO renters. You'll find almost every pot or utensil you might need plus an impressive stock of herbs and spices. We enjoy Napa and Sonoma County wineries and this house is perfectly located to take advantage of both areas. In addition, several groceries, Costco and other shopping is close at hand. The owners are wonderful to work with. They care about their house and care about providing a quality stay for their guests.

Beautiful Santa Rosa house

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay. It was nice to have a clean and comfortable place to relax after a long day of meetings. The seats in the hot tub are fantastic. The owners are organized and available, and I will plan to stay here again next time we're in the area.

Perfect stay for a week in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a 5 night stay at Lisa's home. I can not say enough about our stay here. I surprised my husband with a trip to wine country for his birthday. We wanted a house, instead of a hotel, where we could cook some of our own meals and just relax. My criteria in a home was a great kitchen, hot tub, and central location. This house fit the bill perfectly. Being a VRBO and Airbnb host myself, I have pretty high standards!

The kitchen is amazing and stocked with more than you will need. There are numerous outdoor spaces to enjoy, and the weather was perfect for using the hot tub at the end of the day. The beds and linens were comfortable, and the master suite was great.

I was initially hesitant to stay in the city of Santa Rosa as I thought staying in town would take away from the wine "country" experience. But in this house you actually feel like you are in the country. There are tons of mature trees all around the property and views of the mountains. From some views you can't even tell that you have neighbors.

We were greeted by Kim when we arrived and she went over all the essentials and had a nice chilled bottle of wine waiting for us. Everything you need to know is listed in the house manual, along with tons of information about the neighborhood, and surrounding wine regions. We did not have any issues during our stay but if we did Lisa and Kim were just a call or text away.

Regardless of which wine regions you are looking to explore this house is in a great location. We drove to the Napa region on 2 different days and took 2 different routes and it was beautiful, especially with the fall colors.

There are so many small towns offering many things to do in this region. We didn't have nearly enough time to do half of the things we wanted to do. Literally across the street from the house is the entrance to a park, which leads to the larger State Park. Great for walks, hikes, bike riding etc.

There was initially suppose to be 6 adults but ended up being only 4 of us and there was plenty of room. We easily could have had 4 more people and there still would be enough room!

We will definitely be back and stay here again and explore even more of the region. Would recommend for mature groups, families, couples, girls weekends.

Thanks again Lisa and Kim, we had a wonderful time!
