About Lori Bergstrom

Bud is a retired business owner and Lori is in the wine industry. We are native Santa Rosans, traveled the world and still have not found a better place to live!! We have a dog and a cat that can be taken care of by our caretakers. Your visit gives us an excuse to hop in the RV for a road trip. We're very flexible and open. We take great pride in our home and are thoughtful and respectful of others. We are non-smoking.

Lori Bergstrom purchased this estate in 1985

Why Lori Bergstrom chose Sonoma County

This is the ideal property for that special Event, Birthday, or Holiday Gathering. We have lived here for 27 years and find this to be 'The Chosen Spot as Far As Nature is Concerned. 'Crush' in the wine country (Sept. & Oct.) is especially delightful as the crowds have left and the pace is slower.

What makes this estate unique

This property offers privacy, park like setting, relaxing atmosphere, unique garden setting with greenhouse, and free fresh eggs daily from the chickens.

We had a great time at this home. The view from the deck was awesome as we loved sitting on the deck warmed by the outdoor fireplace in the evening. The home was spacious and beautiful. It was a perfect setting for our family. Gracious hosts on the premises.

Beautiful Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at this house with our friends from Germany. It was clean, comfortable and well stocked. We cooked many meals there with food bought at Trader Joe's and the fish market. Great location for wine tasting and Bodega Bay. Loved the fire pit and the deck in general. We spent most of our time outside. Bud and Lori were gracious hosts. Thanks for the fresh eggs!

sunset vista

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my group of 8 college friends to celebrate turning 60. The house was lovely and had everything we could have needed. The bedrooms were spacious and the living areas were generously large to accommodate our group comfortably. The outdoor spaces were incredible, with the pool and gardens, and the deck with the fire pit and the view. The location was perfect. We enjoyed visiting Napa to the coast and everywhere in between. Lori and Bud were available for every question and very friendly. We all enjoyed our stay very much.

Anniversary celebration

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful home and surrounding property! We could have easily spent much more time at the house but as we were there to do winery tours we were gone for most of each day. It comfortably accommodated 3 couples with lots of beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. Bud and Lori were very gracious and helpful with any information we needed. I would strongly recommend it for a Getaway to just chill and relax. You definitely need a car for anything you do.

great trip

  • 5 of 5

There were 3 couples who stayed in this house. It was very well maintained and had everything you could ask for. It is located on a beautiful property with large trees and beautiful flowers and a beautiful view of Santa Rosa. We stayed for 6 nights. When we arrived Bud and Lori were there to greet us and show us around the house and answer any questions we had. We took a trip into the Costco, which was only a 10 min. drive from the house and loaded up on groceries for the week. The house is in a great location to travel to many areas. We spent a day touring Sonoma wineries, a couple days doing Napa and a day trip into San Francisco and Sausilito. We also spent a relaxing day at the pool. Bud and Lori were very friendly and hospitable. I forgot some clothes in a dresser and can't thank Lori enough for mailing them back to me. Would highly recommend this property.

Comfortable Home, quiet, great views, close to town and wineries.

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and comfortable, with great views and wonderful outdoor spaces to watch the birds or sit and read. The pool was very nice, but the early May weather did not cooperate for much swimming. The owners were very nice and accommodating. They were very helpful, but did not intrude at all.
