About David Walker

'Wolf Glen' derived its name from the many Jack London novels that were about wolves. Jack London lived in Glen Ellen and the state park named after him is a short walk from our home. Also, dedicated to our dog Juneau (pictured) had 'wolf' characteristics and we decided (as most dog lovers do) that this was actually his house. :-)

As for the 'Glen' part, the trees are so beautiful that we had to use 'Glen' in the name. We do hope that Wolf Glen is all that you want it to be and more - enjoy!!

David Walker purchased this house in 2012

Why David Walker chose Sonoma County

The creek, the trees, the tranquility and the location to restaurants, wineries and the Glen Ellen Market make this home ideal for visiting the wine country. We have looked for a home in Sonoma County for years and stayed in vacation rentals throughout the wine regions and finally settled on the town of Glen Ellen due to its central location in the Sonoma Wine Valley and its proximity to the Napa Valley. Once we settled into the town of Glen Ellen we fell in love with the heart of the community and everyone we have met.

What makes this house unique

We found Wolf Glen on a lark and fell in love with it immediately. The home feels elegant and sophisticated, and offers a unique balance of privacy and access to the heart of downtown Glen Ellen. We can walk to restaurants, winery tasting rooms, and a gourmet grocery store yet the home is on a private, quiet road and feels as if it in the middle of no where. The stars at night are amazing. Just short walk from the home we can enter into Sonoma Regional Park and hike up in the hills, or drive a short mile and be in Jack London State Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to let you know that we throughly enjoied our weekend in Glen Ellen. The house was perfect for our group, allowing both privacy and plenty of room for gatherings. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances, pots and pans, and tableware. (Although a tea kettle would have been nice)

The decks offered a beautiful view of the creek below, and make a wonderful place for gathering in the evenings. It was a short walk to town for night life or the market. I would highly recommend your house to other groups as comfortable place to spend a fall weekend in wine country.

A great house!

  • 5 of 5

Recently my wife and I along with 3 other couples stayed at "Wolf Glen" for a long weekend. As soon as we walked in we were elated to see how clean and well decorated the house was and we even had fresh flowers upon arrival. The house was very clean with plenty of room for us to stretch out. Over the years I have rented numerous houses and condos and one of my "pet peeves" is the lack of sharp knives. Well that all came to an end where every knife we used was sharp and made cutting and chopping for meals so much easier. There is a nice deck out back overlooking a creek and we even saw a deer one evening. The house is also close to town, 2 blocks, to restaurants and grocery store. We enjoyed the house so much, we have even talked about staying here again when we come back in the future. I would definitely recommend the house.

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

What a great time we had on this trip. We loved the town of Glen Ellen, and especially this lovely house. All 8 adults had plenty of room, all enjoyed private rooms with comfortable beds. And the FULLY stocked kitchen was a nice extra! Thanks so much.

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Wolf Glen is the perfect place to stay for a weekend (or more) in Wine Country! The property is beautiful! I was there last weekend with a group of 10 girls to celebrate my sisters upcoming wedding. There was plenty of space for everyone to sleep comfortably as well as tons of bathrooms for these girls to use to get ready. The house had everything and anything you could ask for. We were able to cook meals, play games, listen to music, and enjoy the peaceful scenery. If you are looking for a rental for a girls weekend or even a getaway with some other couples, this is the place for you!

Wonderful home base in wine country.

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with Wolf Glen. From the moment we walked in the front door, we felt at home. Dave & Rob have great taste in décor and amenities. The communication prior to our visit was outstanding. The gourmet kitchen was our gathering area, just as it is in our own home. The beds are very comfortable, the linens high quality and the property is clean and well maintained. We were sad to leave after our three day stay, but would certainly return next time we visit the area.

Great location, spacious, and clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Wolf Glen! The kitchen and living space were more than comfortable for 8 adults to relax, eat, and enjoy each others company.

The kitchen was very well stocked and the homeowner was very generous allowing us to use oils, vinegars, and spices, not generally available in most vacation homes. The backyard deck over looking the creek was a great place to eat and hang out. Beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms were huge and clean. With 8 ladies sharing the space there was absolutely nothing to complain about except how short our stay was. Thank you Dave, for being such a generous host - and an excellent chef!
