About Lois & Ted
A Bay Area lad and an Iowa lass both fell in love with Sonoma many years ago. We would be honored to be your hosts while you're touring the wine country north of San Francisco.
Lois & Ted purchased this House in 1998
Why Lois & Ted chose Sonoma
It is our pleasure to share this dream-come-true with you! What was once a simple country house has been lovingly designed and rebuilt by Ted, fulfilling his lifelong dream to live a Craftsman lifestyle. Ted also built a second dwelling behind the bungalow which is our residence. Here is your opportunity to return to that simpler life, the Craftsman Life, if even for a few days...to slow down and savor each precious moment life offers. 'DunRoamin'... a fitting name for a dream-come-true! We are done roaming! And invite you to do the same if only for a few days.
What makes this House unique
In addition to the unique charm and beauty of the bungalow, the property boasts brilliant sunrises over the Mayacamas mountains along with romantic sunsets over the Sonoma coastal range making this property a very special place to start and end each day in the beautiful Sonoma countryside. If you're seeking a peaceful and quiet place to call home for awhile, look no further. You're Dunroamin!

Absolutely the most wonderful rental we have ever stayed in!!! DunRoamin rocks!!!
We have rented many homes, through VRBO and other sources. This house was, by far, the nicest one we have ever rented! So beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped. We walked into town (Sonoma) several times, and loved the country setting of this home! Terrific beds and bedding (always important), and so many great details. Thank you so much, Lois and Ted!!
Warm, comfortable and perfect for two couples who enjoy wine, food and sunrises
This home was built from a dream of creating a craftmans house. If you enjoy the comfort of that period don't pass up the opportunity to spend a few days there. The owners are close by and are as warm and friendly as the home they share. The house faces east and the sunrises are spectacular. If you like to cook the kitchen has all you need. You will be minutes from downtown Sonoma and in the heart of Northern California wine country.
Thank you for your thoughtful review. We are delighted you were able to enjoy a special Thanksgiving complete with spectacular sunrises, a warm and cozy home and a kitchen to create that most special meal of the year! We look forward to seeing you in the future. Have a lovely Christmas with your family. - Lois & Ted
This property is beautiful and fully loaded with everything you need while on vacation.
We were able to cook anything with a fully loaded kitchen. The dimmers on all the lights and beautifully lit fireplace made giving a massage extra special! The queen sized bed has the perfect mattress for a restful sleep. The entertainment room had great lounge chairs, snuggle blankets, great DVD selections, iPod docking station, movie channels, wifi, etc. It was perfect! The view was beautiful and we got to enjoy the once-in-a-life time "Super Moon" while we were there. Ted and Lois were terrific hosts! They provide washing accommodations with supplies, unlimited coffee, tea, cocoa, and spices for cooking. A beautiful BBQ grill and deck for those that like outdoor cooking faces a green meadow with oak trees to dine under or just recline and enjoy the stars!
This home is the ideal getaway for any couples or friends that want to avoid the businesses of a hotel while having the privacy and comfort of your own home! Thank you Ted, Lois, and Fred Astaire (cat) for sharing your house with us.
Wow! You covered everything and then some!! Thanks for your kind review. It was nice having family and friends here to celebrate a dear friend's very special weekend. We look forward to seeing you all again.....Lois & Ted
What an awesome find!!
What can I say that others haven't already? The house was such an awesome find...I almost don't want to leave a review (to selfishly ensure we have the ability to stay here again when we decide to return)! Lois and Ted were so attentive even before we arrived, going so far as to answer questions while they were on their own vacation in ITALY! Talk about customer service.
The home was clean, fully stocked, private and offered all the amenities and little details one could ask for. There were plenty of informational brochures, maps and restaurant recommendations available and if we had any questions, we were confident Lois and Ted would guide us in the right direction.
The layout of the home is perfect for couples, family or friends who want to spend time together but also enjoy a little bit of privacy. The two rooms are on opposite ends of the home with access to separate bathrooms.
If you get a chance, catch a sunrise on the front porch. We are NOT morning people but couldn't pass up the incredible show each morning. The location offers you a unique mix of country tranquility and easy access (7 minute drive) to Sonoma Plaza where some great restaurants and tasting rooms can be found.
Like I said, I hesitate leaving this review as I fear Lois and Ted's reputation as excellent hosts will leave us fighting to find vacancy at this little slice of heaven in the future...
Thank you, guys for a wonderful time. So looking forward to coming back.
Wow! What an awesome review!! Thank you so much! You're a talented wordsmith with your keen descriptions of DunRoamin. And we are thrilled you enjoyed the sunrises...I'm doing so as I write...you were lucky the weather was on your side to see some pretty nice ones. We thoroughly enjoyed having you all here and would love to see you in the future. And thank you again for your wonderful review! I
This is an extremely beautiful home. Everything is there that you need, Lois even had a lovely bottle of wine for us.
The scenery is breath taking the location is great close by to all kinds of interesting places.
Would definitely come back if and when we come back out this way!!
Thank you for your kind review. We enjoyed having you while you visited the wine country and we look forward to seeing you again. - Lois
Delightful hosts of an inviting, snug, beautifully appointed cottage.
Comfortable, wonderfully appointed accommodation for five with wonderful antiques, decor, and creature comforts for the most discriminating taste. Ted and Lois have spared nothing to make their guests feel right at home. 5 minutes from downtown Sonoma, yet in the country with vineyards, sheep and wandering peacocks in the neighborhood!
We are touched by your compliments! DunRoamin was warmed by your presence for the special birthday celebration with your family. We look forward to welcoming you all again the next time you're in need of peaceful relaxation in the country! We''ll have the sheep and peacocks ready to greet you...
2 local airports are minutes from the property offering landing privileges as well as bi-plane charters to get a birds-eye view of the wine country; occasionally, hot air balloons are seen floating above the field across from our bungalow. We were fortunate to have one land on our field early one morning in August 2011! Breathtaking!
