Overview

Kenwood House Rental Photos and Description

House, 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 (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 bathroom and a pool/pingpong 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.

We invite you to come, enjoy your family and friends, and enjoy our home in Sonoma Valley!

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!

Highly Recommend this property!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends (8 in total) stayed at this property and the photos do not do it justice!! The home and the separate guest house and "barn" sleeping quarters were all impressive and would satisfy any discriminating traveler. Rob was wonderful and so easy to work with. Everything has been meticulously planned with this property from the well stocked pantry items to the high quality bed linens and we made many happy memories roasting s'mores, having ping pong and bocce ball tournaments and the kids of course loved the pool and hot tub. This is an exceptional value and a wonderful retreat. Do not hesitate to book this now!!

Wonderful getaway close to Sonoma

  • 5 of 5

My family recently stayed at this wonderful home a few weeks ago for a family reunion and getaway to wine country. The first thing we noticed was how quiet and peaceful the home is. It's only about 5 minutes off the main road, but you feel like you're in another world. The perfect setting for a relaxing vacation! We were welcomed with bottles of wine from local wineries. There are 3 separate sleeping spaces that accommodated our large family well. The main home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as the kitchen and 2 living spaces. Between that and the spacious backyard with a gorgeous pool, we had plenty of common space for gathering. There is also a separate cottage and barn that provide two more separate beds and baths, perfect for groups needing some added privacy. The kitchen was well stocked with dishware, glassware, and everything you could need for cooking.

We brought our young kids, ages 2 and 4, and the owners made every accommodation for them. They put up a safety fence around the pool, provided a pack n play for sleep, and a booster seat for meals. There is a washer and dryer available, as well as plenty of linens. The pool is amazing, the hot tub was perfect, I honestly can't think of anything else that could have been better. Best of all, the owners were so gracious, helpful, and informative. They communicated with us before we even arrived to help us plan and prepare appropriately. I highly recommend visiting this perfect get-away.

The K's at Kenwood Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Kenwood Retreat for a family reunion. My husband and I chose this spectacular home for a vacation that included our children which are 3 adult couples and 2 grandchildren, ages 2 and 4. There was great ease in planning as the owners, Rob and Marybeth were extremely accommodating. Upon arrival to the home we were greeted with many special touches that made us feel so welcome. The condition of the home and property is impeccable. The pantry was so well stocked. I appreciated the gourmet kitchen that included quality appliances and many needed gadgets. Anything that we could possibly need for the trip was at our fingertips. My grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful pool. The adults especially loved the hot tub. There were more than a few bocce competitions, as well as many opportunities for games and recreation. The living spaces were very spacious and the separate quarters allowed for restful privacy yet the common areas were perfect for a large family gathering. The location was outstanding and close enough to lovely vineyards and Sonoma Square. A perfect get-away. This home is a one-of-kind gem!

Great couples getaway! Love this place

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home. We had 4 couples and the property is perfect because everyone felt they had privacy, space and enough bathrooms! We had a fantastic time just chilling at the pool/jacuzzi and playing Bocce. We also played ping pong but after all the wine no one could hit the ball straight! Robert (owner) was so accommodating and even met our florist before we arrived to set flowers inside for Mother's Day. He was extremely responsive with any questions before and during our stay. We will be back as this property is very convenient for wineries. House was very well stocked.

FANTASTIC STAY

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in Kenwood. Beautiful grounds with great amenities abound. Pool and Bocci court were a great way to end the day after wine tasting. Very close walk to great parks for a morning hike. Rob was awesome to work with and truly cared that everyone enjoyed their time in Kenwood. Very easy drive to Napa and Sonoma. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Kenwood area. Many fantastic wineries within 10 minutes.

Wine Country Trip!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property with an excellent owner! We had planned our trip for 7 adults to be spent in various areas of wine country each day. We originally booked another place, which was evacuated due to the Valley fire only a few days before we were supposed to arrive in California. Luckily, we were able to find this property and Rob (owner). From initial contact with Rob, he helped make the entire process as seamless as possible, which was really impressive based on the short notice.

Upon arrival, we were happy to find a great set-up for our group of 7. Because the property has 3 separate buildings, we were able to spread out and have some privacy when necessary. However, the most endearing qualities of this property enabled our group to spend a lot of time together. This includes dinners outside on the large outdoor dining table, hanging out in the pool and hot tub, and playing bocce ball while enjoying the sunset. On top of all of that, we were lucky enough to be on property during harvest, and Rob was gracious enough to share this event with us.

I cannot express how happy we were to find this great property and great owner. We had a wonderful trip, and it was all thanks to Rob’s hospitality.

You and your group were in a tough situation and yet you were very helpful to me in booking the reservation on short notice. I am glad that everyone enjoyed the property, as we do, and the harvest. It was a good Crush with your friends and a memory I will always enjoy. Come back anytime !! Rob
