A private resort experience for two couples that want to travel and gather together, yet retreat to their own spaces to unwind after a day of wine tasting, touring, dining out or socializing by the pool. Sonoma Rosso is located on the Highway 12 Wine Trail in beautiful Kenwood, in California's Sonoma Valley, approximately one hour north of San Francisco. The scenery is gorgeous - from vineyards and wide open fields studded with ancient oaks to rolling hills and dramatic mountains. The property has an historic stone ranch house, two cottages and an art studio. There is an organic garden, large saltwater pool and other amenities for our guests to enjoy in season.
Sonoma Rosso now features two fully outfitted cottages, the Guest Cottage and the Creekside Cottage. When rented in combination, it is a luxury residential experience for two couples that want to travel and gather together, yet retreat to their own completely private spaces. Each cottage has a living room, full kitchen, and bedroom with en-suite bath.
If you are looking for a 2-person stay in one of the cottages, please send an inquiry for pricing and availability.
