Overview

Sonoma County Estate Rental Photos and Description

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.

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.

Absolutely Charming!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most charming houses we've ever rented-- from the beautiful colors in the house and in the garden, the bedding and the linens- it was just beautiful. Everything was perfect for a comfortable and relaxing long weekend with friends. The bedrooms are very accommodating and comfortable. The kitchen/grill is perfectly equipped with everything you could need to make a true gourmet meal. We had a party of 9 and had plenty of rooms/bathrooms and space. The pool and patio were gorgeous and the gardens are truly spectacular-- bring a camera! :) You won't be disappointed!

Phenomenal Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My spouse and I and 4 other couples stayed at this lovely farmhouse In April. Katie was extremely accommodating before and during the stay. Instructions were well laid out upon arrival and departure. The bedrooms were large sized, comfortable. The bathrooms were well maintained. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to utilize.

The grounds were well-kept and had beautiful gardens.

My spouse and I stayed in the guesthouse, which is a nice private separate structure from the rest of the house.

There is a nice table on the deck where guests can come and stay and enjoy wine in the evening.

My friends and I would have walks every morning and it is a very nice area to stay in but close enough to the local Pinot wineries we love to visit.

This is our 4th trip to Sonoma in the last 4 years and the best place we have stayed so far.

Overall 5 star place to stay and the owner is fantastic to work with.

We will definitely come back in the future!!!!

Incredible Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wow was I pleased / impressed. I was initially a bit concerned about staying in Sebastopol, given it's not actually Sonoma or Napa...but it ended up being perfect. Secluded / quiet house, beautiful 6+ acre yard, basketball court, large kitchen / dining area, guest house. It truly felt like home. I will for sure be going back. There's also great wineries just a short ride away and awesome restaurants in-town (15 minute drive) should you not want to cook at home.

Katie was incredibly helpful as well!

Sibling getaway for 50th Birthday

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for our family get together for a 50th birthday celebration. The house is clean, beautifully decorated - a great mix of new and traditional character. (Note that there is only one room with a private bathroom - the remote cottage. All 3 other baths are shared in the house with the 4 bedrooms. One of the baths has a tub only with shower wand. That said, the beds were very comfortable.) Grounds lovely with orchard and veggie gardens, pool and outdoor dining area beautiful! Location was perfect for visiting wine country and the coast an easy day trip. We hired a local winery and chef to do a multi-course wine paired meal and ate out on the terrace. It was incredible! Kitchen is well equipped. The neighborhood street is great walking to get a little exercise after so much wine and food too! About a 3 mile loop with some hills. We loved the house and created wonderful memories and hope to come back again someday!

THE PERFECT PLACE FOR A GROUP!

  • 5 of 5

This place was AMAZING! The owners thought of everything. Towels, soap, comfy beds, and a top notch kitchen! We could not get enough of this place. It was a great place to relax after a day of wine tasting. The pool was perfect for a late afternoon dip. There was 9 of us and more than enough room. The garden was great and we even made a salad from all the fresh veggies! I would highly recommend this place to anyone. We will be back!
