Located in the center of the wine country: a short walk to Martin Ray Winery tasting everything from Cabernet to Chardonnay, dozens of other wineries within a few miles, only 15 to 20 minutes to Healdsburg, less than 5 minutes to a kayak launch site on the Russian River and 20 minutes to Bodega Bay.

About Michael Ray

My husband and I love to travel and stay in unique homes. When we were looking for a home to offer as a vacation rental we knew immediately this home would be perfect. There isn't another home like it, anywhere. It has a fantastic location in the center of the wine country, is very private and is surrounded by beautiful views and landscaping.

Michael Ray purchased this house in 2011

Why Michael Ray chose Sonoma County

We love Sebastopol. It's rural, but it's 15 minutes close to everything any big city has to offer and it's only an hour drive into San Francisco. People are friendly, open and accepting and the tasting rooms are relaxed and uncrowded.

What makes this house unique

This home is like no other home. When you drive through the front gate it gives you the feel of arriving at a castle. There is an open floor plan, great for a large or small family, with three bedrooms (king, king, queen, a den/bedroom with a full size bed and a large recreation room). You can barbecue out on the deck while dipping in and out of the hot tub ~ or talking to those inside watching TV on the flat screen.

Notes:
6050 Vine Hill School Road is within walking distance to Martin Ray Winery as well as within bicycling distance to DeLoach, Sunce, and Hook and Ladder wineries; Our home is very private and looks out at vineyards to the south, pastures and mountains to the west and is surrounded by other large properties. It is very private and offers lots of opportunities for great walks by the vineyards (you might even catch a glimpse of the nesting bald eagles), beautiful drives on Dry Creek Road and West Side Road, easy access to Bodega Bay, excellent restaurants, music venues and art. Shopping is an experience in downtown Sebastopol, Healdsburg and Geyserville which are all within a 20 minute drive. Its a beautiful place, serene, quiet and very unique.

Very nice accommodations and location

  • 4 of 5

We held a small weekend family reunion there. Location was easy to get into town or out to the coast easily. The hot tub and pool table added to the fun! The owner provided tons of information and was VERY responsive to questions. Thanks!

Beautiful place, relaxing with unique story

  • 5 of 5

The location is quiet, the house is clean, and fitted our family. The background story of the house adds special atmosphere, the play room is great for the kids and the adults. The old tractor outside is perfect for little boys. Michael is welcoming and helpful. Overall highly recommended!

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated my 50th Birthday at the Castle House and it was fabulous! The host Michael greeted us with abundant information about the area and the history of the house which made the stay that much more special. The scenery was spectacular and all the amenities in the house really were just perfect! We will definitely be back!
