|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
In the heart of the wine country, a golden room with private bath and a hot tub just outside on the deck overlooking the vineyards of Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County, California. Separated from the main house, high up on a second floor over a quiet Feldenkrais studio, behind the garage, it has it's own entrance and much privacy....an aerie, your own private heaven. The eyes meet with dramatic views of the valley floor with Geyser Peak in the distance.
What a wonderful place to stay for local events! Find yourselves one mile from the Vineman bike route, three miles from Lake Sonoma, nine miles from Healdsburg, where you can rent a kayak for kayaking down the Russian River or rent a bike to go biking in the Dry Creek Valley, and also located within walking or biking distance of numerous wineries for an exquisite wine tasting experience.
Winter brings a more quiet time and our farm can become a secluded restorative hideaway for rest and relaxation. Reading, long walks in the fresh air, contemplation and clarification...all are possible..
You may hear occasional sounds of tractors, roosters, dogs & cats. You'll be on a small farm.
We are a 70 year-old married couple who work at their own businesses. Stan manages small vineyards and Charlotte is a Feldenkrais Practitioner.
We have lived here for over 25 years and this is our most favorite spot in all the world!
Charlotte Chavez purchased this studio in 1986
Stan built this vacation rental over Charlotte's studio and connected to a garage so that we could have room for family and friends when they visit.
Walks in the vineyards, kayaking out at the lake, bike riding, wine tasting, wonderful local restaurants and a great Farmer's Market! Plus lots of things to do in the nearby towns of Healdsburg, Geyserville, and Cloverdale!!
David and I had a great time and really enjoyed getting to know you and Stan. Sitting on the deck eating breakfast as the sun came up, looking out at the incredible view of the vineyards and mountains, and then being in the hot tub at night under the enormous blanket of stars are memories I'll always cherish. It was perfect!
We look forward to going back again.
Thank you for sharing your home (and pooches!) with us!
It was exactly what we were looking for...a small retreat for us to refresh and relax in between wine tastings and foodie fun in Healdsburg. This studio gave us everything we wanted...privacy, a chance to disconnect (no tele/no phone), to relax (perfect hot tub for two which was made better by the harvest moon), delicious breakfast and coffee (fresh ground and pour over...the best!), and a very gracious and hospitable host. This gem of a retreat is nestled smack in the middle of vineyards...you are surrounded on all sides...which made wine tasting between Healdsburg and Geyserville convenient and fun (it is always fun to just drive by and say...Hey, that looks interesting!) 15 minutes from some amazing restaurants in Healdsburg and an hour away from Sonoma. Our hosts provided Wi-Fi (so, we weren't completely unplugged! And it was nice since we often were mapping out our trip to various places and the cell coverage in the area is often spotty), anything we needed (such as more coffee!), a hairdryer, several various toiletry items, clean linens (and enough towels for both the shower and hot tub), and privacy. They have very friendly dogs, so I was often greeted in the morning by wagging tails and ears to scratch (no barking in the morning...only when we would pull up in the car. Both are well behaved and just excited to see new people.) Fall was an amazing time to be here...the leaves on the vines were arrayed from red to yellow, the host's fruit trees were laden with gorgeous lemons, oranges (or maybe persimmons), olives, and apples. We fell in love with this area and have decided that we will most definitely be back and hope to stay at this property! We strongly recommend this property to anyone interested in staying in the heart of wine country. Some of the restaurants we recommend: Dry Creek Kitchen, Valette's, Bacci Cafe. Vineyards: Moshin, Porter Creek, and Segehsio...there are so many others...these three were the ones we ordered from/joined their club. Salut!
We had an amazing time, visited beautiful wineries and tasted fabulous wines. We were away from all the hype of Napa and had an incredible time. Our host and hostess Charlotte and Stan Chavez were the best. Our room was warm and inviting. Our morning croissants, fruit and coffee were a perfect touch. I highly recommend staying here and will definitely return. Debby
Great location and perfect accommodations, just what we were looking for. The view was incredible, vineyards for miles and perfect for a morning walk. Charlotte and Stan were so kind and great hosts. The breakfast was delicious and more than enough.
My husband and I spent a weekend at this wonderful property. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful while also providing space.
As we pulled into the property we were immediately greeted by a couple of lovable dogs. We received a lot of love.
The unit itself is well stocked and every tiny detail is accounted for; all the little touches matter, and they are all covered. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom spacious and spotless, and all amenities perfect for the space and location.
The jacuzzi is cozy and relaxing. The food thoughtful and delicious.
And, this is hands down the best wine region in all the Bay Area! I can't recommend the area enough, and this spot the best place for couples to enjoy Healdsburg.
We enjoyed this lovely room very much! We have stayed elsewhere in Sonoma Valley but no where else compares to sleeping and hot-tubbing in a vineyard. The muffin breakfasts were an unexpected treat too. This is truly a dream spot!!
I wonder if Charlotte and Stan carried a ladder around their property one day to carefully select what would be the view? Here? Or, here? And finally, this is it! Together they built their second story guest studio so that every day their guests would be greeted with an uncompromising view. The studio isn't pretentious as that would not be inviting. It is a warm and comfortable blend of old and new, collected and salvaged. Furnished with every need considered, yet minus the distraction of a TV. And to relax in the hot tub under a star filled sky was the end to every perfect day in Dry Creek.
I selected The Farm looking for a place to destress. We stayed a week and could have stayed indefinitely.
We now have Wi-fi!
Charlotte is a Feldenkrais Practitioner and it is possible to arrange one or more private sessions with her during your stay.
