Country Retreat W/ Pool and Spa in Heart of Sonoma Valley

Bedrooms 4
Property type farmhouse
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

FAMILIES AND FRIENDS: Treat yourself to this spacious retreat in the heart of Sonoma Valley, set amidst vineyards, farms, and pastoral mountain views. You'll enjoy the beautiful heated natural rock pool (Solar heated during season) and the spa, outdoor fire pit, landscaped gardens, and bocce court. Lots of room to congregate or spread out. Come to relax.

Kenwood is located in the heart of the Sonoma Valley surrounded by world class wineries. Fantastic restaurants, from café to five-star, are in Kenwood and the neighboring village of Glen Ellen. Travel just ten miles to historic Sonoma Square or take a fifteen mile backroad drive to the heart of Napa Valley.

For Mountain Bikers you will find some of the best single-track biking in California one-half mile from our driveway. The vacant winding country roads of the area beckon your road bike. Within a five-mile radius are three state parks offering outdoor recreation including biking, hiking, picnicking and swimming. Spa facilities are available nearby at the Kenwood Inn and Spa or Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa.

A warm gracious living room invites you to sit by the fire and play cards, read, or watch a movie. The family room is off the patio and pool and has a wood burning stove.

The large, gourmet equipped kitchen allows several to happily cook while enjoying the company of their friends. You'll find such touches as a professional range, granite counters, and an espresso maker. The dining area seats eight, and a café/game table is in the family room.

There are a total of four bedrooms and four bathrooms on the property. There is an additional queen pullout sofa in a semi private living room.

The main house has two bedrooms and two full baths. The master bedroom has a king bed and doors leading to the patio and hot tub. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The master bath includes double sinks and a large Jacuzzi (bathtub).

Our spacious guest house is just steps away. It features a king bed, living area, mini-kitchen, full bath, and verandah.

The newly remodeled barn has one bedroom with 2 queen beds, a full bathroom and ping pong table.

While fully equipped for entertaining, this is our family country home. We cannot accommodate large parties owing to zoning and our septic system. We do not wish to disturb our neighbors in this peaceful, private area. We ask that no more than ten be on the property, ( 8 adults max)

We invite you to come, enjoy your family and friends, and enjoy our home in Sonoma Valley! Please provide a short description of your group and where you are visiting from when requesting a booking.

06/29/07 Positive This property is so fantastic! Our family had so much fun winding through the beautiful hills and vineyards of Kenwood to find this hidden jewel. Once we arrived, we enjoyed exploring the tasteful and casual main house, charming studio guest house and the cozy converted barn. For our family, center stage was the beautiful courtyard patio with a large table and rock edged pool. We appreciated having a removable and unobtrusive child safety fence in place upon our arrival. The kitchen was a dream - the cooks in our family used lavender and rosemary fresh from the patio garden in several dishes. The pool, bocce court and garden paths appealed to our children, and the adults enjoyed the ambiance of the courtyard patio during the day and evening as a conversation area.

04/03/07 Positive This is a very beautiful property that comfortably accommdates ten people. The grounds are spacious and provides lots of privacy from neighbors. Photos are accurate but doesn't do the property justice in representing it's beauty. It's the perfect Sonoma getaway.


04/03/07 Positive This house was a wonderful retreat in Sonoma. It is tucked away from all the main roads, in a beautiful and relaxing setting. The house is very spacious, clean, nicely furnished, and comfortable. The beds were comfy, the kitchen well-appointed... it is a real gem!

Beautiful property in a delightful setting. Location is perfect for exploring or just staying around

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of six women and we could not have had a better time at this wonderful setting. The house was ideal and so comfortable. Everything we needed was there and we enjoyed all that it had to offer...the pool, the bocce and the hot tub. Cooking was a breeze as the kitchen was completely equipped.

The owner made our stay very special with his thoughtful welcome...fresh flowers and delicious wine to start our wine country retreat.

Thank you, Rob, for all of your suggestions. We did not have enough time to do everything and everyone wants to come back!!

The property was beautiful and very clean. It had a great layout for our family with the two separate suites. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub and garden by the bocci ball court. Rob was very accommodating and went to extra efforts providing special Birthday touches for our son. Wonderful experience!

This home and property are lovely, quiet and private w a feeling of being in the country, yet close to points of interest. The owners' ways of welcome could not be more gracious!

The main home is bright and inviting, comfortable, w room to enjoy gathering family and friends. The wonderful kitchen is large and is fully stocked, better than most.. to fill your needs. Also available is a high chair and a pak 'n play for little ones. Master bdrm and other guest room are beautifully furnished. The 2 guest studios (both w bathrms) are also nicely appointed and great for privacy for 'retreat' and sleeping, but the main home affords room to gather. The landscaping is well kept and the birds are fed at filled feeders (!), so very enjoyable to watch from the patio nr the beautiful pool. (safety fencing available for young ones, just ask). Enjoy Bocce and ping pong! We are planning to return for some future gathering, siblings and spouses 'get-away' or our own family again.

Thank you, Robert and Marybeth!

Beautiful spacious and peaceful!

It was more than we expected. Beautiful swimming pool. Our grandson loved the barn and our in law enjoyed their morning coffee on the front porch as they watched the hummingbirds. We liked the hiking and biking nearby. After a great evening meal, we gathered at the barn for pool and ping pong. Robert (owner) was very thoughtful; stocked the freezer with plenty of ice, and the fridge with some beers and wines.

We strongly recommend this place for a large family or multiple couples.

The best vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5

I had nothing but an excellent experience staying at Rob's house in Kenwood! Me and 7 other girls came from Iowa to wine country for my 30th birthday and it was better than expected! The house and property was absolutely stunning! We knew we were in for a treat but the property was even better than the pictures. We stayed for three nights and decided to stay at the property for two nights and have dinner poolside because we loved the atmosphere so much. All 8 of us girls talked about how we all want to come back with our families because the set up is so great. Everyone can spend time together at the pool and in the house but can go their separate ways and have privacy in the barn or the "guest house bungalow" as we called it. If I do go back to wine country I will absolutely stay at this house again. Also, Rob was excellent to work with and added some fun touches to the house that made our stay and my birthday extra special.
