About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 bathroom, Swimming Pool, 7 Acres

Down a quiet country lane, surrounded by vineyard and orchard views, sits our re-modeled 1920's farmhouse. Welcome to paradise in the wine country!

Most of the property's seven acres are devoted to apple orchard and meadow. The main house consists of four spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, a living room, formal dining room and den. The kitchen is well equipped and makes it fun to feed a group indoors or outdoors. The kitchen was completely remodeled in the Spring of 2015. The house has everything you need to make your wine country vacation enjoyable. Beds and baths are appointed with fine linens. Off the kitchen, a large patio and deck provide a perfect spot for barbequeing and dining al fresco at the large teak table. Read and fall asleep in the large hammock. The location, the so-called Banana Belt, has more sun than anywhere in West Sonoma County! Days start out cool, warm up through the afternoon and then cool off again in the evening, making this a perfect climate for living inside or out.

There is a remodeled, one bedroom guesthouse with a full bath, living room, and wet bar.

A 40', solar-heated swimming pool near the main house provides a great place to cool off in the heat of the afternoon. There are two organic vegetable gardens where you can pick over 50 different varieties of herbs, vegetables and fruits for your meals (depending upon the season). Over 70 mature rose bushes around the house provide bursts of color. There is a sport court with a basketball hoop, volleyball net and lights for late evening play.

There are many fun things to do nearby. You'll be close to the greatest pinot noir and chardonnay tasting rooms of the Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley. Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Graton, Occidental and Forestville are minutes away by car. You will find wonderful restaurants, art galleries, and fun shops as you explore these charming towns. There are several excellent grocery stores within a few miles and the Sunday farmers' market in Sebastopol is fantastic.

The possibilities for active outdoor living are limitless! You can walk, run or bike the Joe Rodata trail or the scenic and little-traveled backroads nearby. There are four public golf courses, including a Dr. Alister MacKenzie design, a short distance away. The Pacific coastline is a beautiful drive over the hill from Graton through Occidental. Hiking beneath beautiful redwood groves or canoeing on the Russian River is 15 minutes away.

If you are looking for a special treat, you can revive yourself with a day trip to the famous mud baths in Calistoga. If you desire something closer, there are several day spas in the immediate area.

The property is very private and quiet. At night, city dwellers will be dazzled by a sky full of stars. You are away from it all and still close to everything. San Francisco is 60 miles to the south.

Why Katie chose Sonoma County

We purchased this lovely country house to have a way to get away from the city and the fog in San Francisco. The weather in Sebastopol is almost always delightful. We enjoy the house year-round. Green Valley Haven is unbelievably peaceful.

Perfect for a Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for my father's 80th birthday celebration. It was perfect. The main home is beautifully appointed - with much of the original detail preserved - and has plenty of room for a large group. There are several comfortable spaces for both gathering and getting away, as well as a nicely stocked and recently updated kitchen. The guest house also is very nicely done, with a well designed bedroom and living area.

The setting of the home is gorgeous. The view from the spacious deck area, especially at sunset, is beautiful. Though we did not take advantage of the gardens or the pool given the time of our stay (mid-March), we hope to do so during a summer visit. We loved using the sport court for basketball with our boys, and the ping-pong table in the barn was put to good use as well.

The location of the home is ideal. Great wineries, redwood hiking, quaint towns and the the ocean are all in close proximity. Our routine was to sleep in, have a late breakfast, explore the area for a few hours, and return to have cocktails on the deck at sunset. Though we ate in most nights, there are many great restaurants in nearby Sebastopol, Graton and other towns. It really was perfect. My father had a wonderful time.

The owner of the home is extremely responsive and professional. She alerted us to road closures in the area due to flooding, gave us alternate routes, and was genuinely concerned with ensuring our stay was satisfactory. This is easily the best rental we have found through VRBO. We highly recommend.

Amazing Stay in Sebastopol

  • 5 of 5

My family (10 of us) stayed here over the holiday week. The property was amazing. It is located in a very quiet area and has a lot of nice amenities. The location was perfect as we were able to visit Healdsburg, Calistoga, downtown Sebastopol, Sonoma and other parts of Napa with a quick drive from the house. The owner was also very responsive with us, which we really appreciated. I highly recommend this house for a family reunion.

Wonderful week in a charming home

  • 5 of 5

This house was an amazing home from home with so much to do for the kids, we hardly saw them! The house was very well equipped and even had a secret shoot for your laundry! For the kids there was the pool, basketball, tennis and pingpong. My 80 year old mother stayed in the annex house, which provided a peaceful recluse. We also enjoyed the beautiful strawberries straight from the garden. The location is amazing: a short walk and you are surrounded by vineyards with some great restaurants a short car ride away. Our party consisted of my mother, 4 adults and 4 children (aged between 8-13). The owner, Katie, was very responsive and made sure that our stay went smoothly. In summary, a wonderful retreat for all ages.

Ideally arranged

  • 5 of 5

For the second year we so enjoyed this house and property. Each bedroom provides comfort and privacy, and the public spaces allow for varied activities -- games, talk, cooking and dining. We had fruits and vegetables from the gardens and lovely walks on the country road. Everyone marvels at the pool and deck space. The owners are careful to provide everything necessary and respond quickly to any unforeseen needs. Anyone who visits us there wonders how we even found something so perfect for our getaway.

Beautiful! Something for everyone!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful home for a family get away. It was perfect! The home is lovely, with beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces. Our children loved the pool as well as the huge property with sport court and rope swing. My husband and I loved the remodeled kitchen, outdoor eating area, vegetable garden and private, serene location. We walked every morning on the quiet surrounding roads and drove the short distance into Sebastopol a few times to shop and eat. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to host extended family and friends for dinner and has the most amazing outdoor table for al fresco dining. The home and bedrooms were comfortable and beautifully decorated. There is so much to do just minutes from the home. Canoeing, biking, fishing, & shopping just to name a few. We had a variety of ages staying with us and everyone found something to do and enjoy. It was truly perfect for our family and we will definitely stay there again!

Charming, well cared for home.

  • 5 of 5

I was graciously allowed to host a small gathering of my extended family while renting this charming home. Every one of my guests expressed their love for the feel and details of the home. I was nervous about hosting a party and cooking all of the food in a kitchen I had never stepped foot in. Katie, the owner, assured me that she loved to cook and felt the kitchen would be well stocked with everything I would need. She was right. The home is a great combo of old and new. The outdoor space is amazing, very spacious and private and beautiful. The pool was very nice, not too much chlorine, and again, just beautiful. I was highly impressed with the owner's rose collection. There were many varieties, all well cared for and labeled. What a special place. We truly loved it.
