Overview

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 Sebastopol

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.

Wine country family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here and it was perfect for our family and friends wine trip. The house is set up well for a large group and we cooked daily for at least 1 meal as we toured the local wine region. There are 4 large bedrooms upstairs as well as a cottage outside and it can really sleep many more than the 10 we had in our group. Overall, we had a great visit and Katie was very easy to work with.

A beautiful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for ten days for a small family reunion. The house itself is beautifully appointed, and contains anything and everything you could ever want. As an avid cook, the kitchen, in particular was a total dream. The surrounding property is also absolutely stunning. We picked from the vegetable garden and fruit trees daily, played on the sports' court and swam in the beautiful pool. It really had something for everyone in our group, from the age of 6 to 75! Finally, the property owners could not be lovelier or easier to communicate with. They answered any questions we had within hours, and had fabulous suggestions for things to do in the area. Truly one of the best holidays we have ever had as a family.

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I, all grandmas, recently escaped to this little bit of heaven for our annual "retreat."

The large, old house is charming and evokes a sense of history. The spacious living and dining rooms allow for both comfort and formality. The kitchen is a chef's dream, and the organic fruits and vegetables that grow abundantly on the property are an added bonus.

Mornings were spent walking past lush orchards and vineyards, while afternoons were spent lounging by the pool and enjoying the beautiful and very private grounds. Napping in the hammock that hangs in the shade of a tree guarantees complete relaxation, while the sports court guarantees fun. Finally, evenings were spent barbecuing, dining, and engaging in lively conversation as we sat together under a sky full of twinkling stars and The Man In The Moon!

Absolutely stunning property and charming home

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us rented Katie's place for a long weekend to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday. The property was absolutely perfect for us. We had plenty of room for everyone and we took advantage of the many amenities like: ping pong in the barn, basketball on the sports court, board games, the beautiful views, and the gorgeous and well-equipped kitchen. It is very apparent that the owners truly treasure this place. The location is very private and quiet while still being close to Graton and Sebastopol where we went wine tasting one day. Katie was great to work with and super responsive to any messages or requests. She checked in to make sure we all arrived safe and that everything was in order and even had someone come over to light a pilot light that was out in the guest house. It's one of the most beautiful vacation rentals I have ever stayed at and I can't wait to be back!

Wonderful Wine Country House

  • 5 of 5

Can't recommend this highly enough for a group. The house and grounds are beautiful and very comfortable. Lots of places for people to hang out together or get some private time. Our daughter was celebrating her 40th birthday nearby and I was responsible for a chunk of the brunch the next morning. The kitchen is very well equipped. And the owner was exceptionally responsive and accommodating.

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.
