Overview

About the property

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!

Lovely and Quiet Home

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, quiet place to enjoy wine country. My children so enjoyed playing in the pool and hot tub, and I loved the peace, quiet, and warmth of Glen Ellen. We walked to the market frequently- such a plus! Lori was very responsive and left fantastic instructions on how to enjoy her home. We are so appreciative!

Perfect, clean, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! It is the cleanest house I have ever been in and that includes my own (and I am even a bit OCD when it comes to cleanliness). The location was nice and quiet and the pool and hot tub were great amenities. I would highly recommend this house! Unfortunately I accidentally left behind my Ironman coffee mug after I did Ironman Santa Rosa so if you see it, maybe you'll think of me. 😉

My Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying in Glen Ellen on my recent family trip. The home and the amenities were outstanding. Lori was quick to get back to me with answers to my questions and everything went well. The home is within walking distance to the Glen Ellen Inn and the Fig as well as the Market. It was also easy to get to the wineries in Sonoma and Napa that we wanted to visit.

Mine and my Families thanks to Lori! We look forward to staying with you again. JS
