Kiss of Country
Our home welcomes those travelers in search of something simple. This home has been our family’s refuge since 1968. Nestled in the small town of Glen Ellen, our home is near the ranch where well-renowned author Jack London chose to settle. Jack London State Park offers many activities, such as hiking or horseback riding among giant redwoods, picnicking in a
meadow or by the lake (we recommend picking up picnic supplies at the upscale Glen Ellen Village Market, which is a couple blocks from our home) or exploring the ruins and museums that were once Jack London’s houses. There are also opportunities for hiking or biking at the Sonoma Valley Regional Park, which is a short walk from our home.
If you’re not the outdoorsy type, there are a multitude of world-class wineries and spas a short drive away. Glen Ellen is the perfect staging place for enjoying all that the Sonoma and Napa valleys have to offer. Within a 45-minute drive, you could get a massage in Calistoga, go wine tasting in the Dry Creek Valley appellation near Healdsburg, or have dinner at a celebrity chef’s restaurant in Yountville. Within a 15-minute drive, you could explore downtown Sonoma’s historic plaza, spend the day at Morton’s Warm Springs Resort and go wine tasting in Kenwood on your way back to the house, or tour the biodynamic Benziger Winery. The heart of Glen Ellen is merely a block away, and there you will find fine dining at restaurants such as The Glen Ellen Inn, Glen Ellen Star and The Fig Café. Or simply stay in and relax by the pool and hot tub, fire up the gas grill and enjoy a back yard BBQ. These are just a few ideas out of the myriad of possibilities afforded by our central location in the wine country.
Our 1700-square-foot, ranch-style home offers two bedrooms and one bathroom, large picture windows, a gas fire place insert, and a game room with a pool table. A 2000-square-foot outdoor entertainment area with a pool, hot tub, redwood decks, flagstone patio, lawn area, and view of the surrounding mountains. We hope you will enjoy creating lasting memories with friends and family as we have for over 40 years!

We had a lovely wine weekend staying at Lori's house. It worked well for two couples and a 17 month old in our room in a pack and play. The 1 bathroom worked but a second would have been helpful. We did not read in any reviews about the door at the end of the hall that is locked which caught us off guard so I wanted to share for future guests. Everything worked well and was clean. Thank you!
Gorgeous home! Exceeded my expectations. Has everything you need. Felt like home! Could go on and on. I highly recommend for anybody looking for a rental close to Santa rosa
Lori's home was the perfect spot for a weekend in Sonoma. The house was large and comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked for cooking a meal, and the hot tub and pool were the perfect end of day relaxation spots after a long day of wine tasting. It's walkable to the small Glen Ellen town and a close drive to Sonoma. Highly recommended!
We rented this house with my cousins for a weekend in October and had a wonderful time. We like to be in that part of Sonoma due to the proximity to the wineries we like so the location was perfect. I just wish it had been warm enough to use that beautiful pool! We did get in the hot tub though and that was really nice after a long day of wine tasting. The house was just a quick walk to several very good restaurants making it really ideal. We had a small problem with the shower in one bathroom but the owner was quick to come over and fix it. Overall, we had a really great time and enjoyed our stay at the Kiss of Country. Thank you!
We had a fabulous stay in this charming home in Glen Ellen. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary with our grown daughters. The house was comfortable. The pool and hot tub were a bonus. Perfect location to many nearby wineries an the town of Sonoma. Walking distance to many good restaurants. We will go back!
