This reasonably priced wine country house is located in Sonoma, California. The property boasts two acres including a one acre pinot noir vineyard. Casually appointed, this home has all the conveniences to make your stay comfortable. Located one hour north of San Francisco, It is only a 30 minute drive to Marin and Napa Counties, one hour to Mendocino County and within a ten minute drive to the historic town square of Sonoma. Situated at 1100 feet elevation on Sonoma Mountain, with privacy, this one story, three bedroom, three full bathrooms, 2400 square foot house has views of the hills, valley and bay. It provides the renter a wine country feel with a vineyard and a full outdoor cooking area.

There's lots to do if you like wine or the wine country style. Sonoma is famous for its wine and food.

There is always something going on in Sonoma. You can dine at wonderful restaurants or shop at gourmet grocery stores that provide an array of options for dining and entertainment.

About Sandra Atwood

We are retired and enjoy living part of our lives in the wine country of Sonoma, part in Lake Tahoe, and summer and winter time near Deer Valley Utah. We are currently building a home in Baja. We own a small vineyard of Pinot Noir grapes which is on the Sonoma property.

Sandra Atwood purchased this house in 1995

Why Sandra Atwood chose Sonoma County

Sonoma is a jewel in the San Francsico bay area.

What makes this house unique

Not only is it visually attractive, casually decorated, this single family house provides indoor/ outdoor living with beautiful views of the hills and the bay. You are conveniently located to all of what Sonoma Historic Town and Valley, and the surrounding San Francisco Bay Area have to offer while in a quiet picturesque setting.

Guestbook comments from the owner


We just wanted to send you a big THANKS for a beautiful, comfortable get away! We all enjoyed our week away from home, and it wouldn't have been so great without your hospitality, tips and recommendations for things to do in the area! We enjoyed your complimentary wine (delicious) we drank it at the Sonoma Farmers Market on Tuesday evening!

We ate at the Red Grape (great pizza), walked through the Armstrong Woods, took many walks up and around Kenleigh drive, enjoyed your fire pit outside and we enjoyed many of the wineries in this area (Chateau St. Jean was our favorite winery)! Attached we included some pictures of the 6 us enjoying Sonoma (the first one is us at the Sonoma Farmers Market on Tuesday evening enjoying your wine and the other is us at a winery in Napa called Hope and Grace, which we really enjoyed!

Sadly we will be leaving bright and early in the morning-what a perfect vacation home...

Thanks again!

Great Sonoma House

  • 5 of 5

Great house just a few miles outside of Sonoma. The house is in great condition, with a wonderful view and a backyard vineyard!

Pictures do not do this home justice!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for us. We had 3 couples in our group and it was nice to have 3 bedrooms with full size beds and attached bathrooms. The property itself is beautiful; We started and ended every day on the back deck overlooking the valley. Sandy and Mike couldn't have been more accommodating. We can't wait to return!

Wonderful Sonoma Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house! If you're traveling with a group, you'll quickly figure out that renting a home and splitting the cost is more affordable than staying in a hotel. We were able to shop down the road at Whole Foods and cook gourmet meals in the house in their awesome kitchen. We only went out to eat twice the whole week!

My (fairly) well-behaved two year old had plenty to explore in their backyard....if you can even call it that. It's more like a mini vineyard. We spent as much time outside as possible. Even in the rain, as there is some covered seating and a small heat lamp on the patio.

The only bummer (and this certainly wasn't their fault) is that AT&T service is nonexistent there. If you plan on doing any kind of work, you'll have to go down into town (I recommend the Sunflower Caffe for that).

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review - and the great pictures you took of our house. Yes unfortunately AT&T is not good anywhere in Sonoma. But we do offer free nationwide calling from our land line. Interesting as we do have AT&T Uverse. Seems like they would make the cell phone towers better. Sprint and Verizon are no problems. Sandy

Wine Country Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our recent stay at this amazing home. I was fortunate to have my husband, brother, sis-in-law and a couple of close friends join me to celebrate my 50th birthday in the wine country. This house was just perfect for all of us to have "together time" in the kitchen while preparing meals, and especially on the beautiful deck and the multitude of seating areas outside, but yet we each had our own private suites to retreat to after a long day of wine tasting-OH so exhausting!! Sandy has provided anything you may need from brochures and recommendations of area attractions, to even cooler bags to use for picnic lunches. Also, thank you so much for the bottle of wine upon arrival, we all enjoyed that very much! We all would love to return to this home in the future, and will recommend it highly to any travelers to Sonoma.

Even better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We were expecting a lovely house after looking at the photos, but the photos truly do not do this house justice.

First the property itself is just lovely--stunning view, lovely grounds. The house is very spacious, beautifully decorated and has everything anyone could need. It's also very centrally located for any activities in wine country. I highly recommend this property and plan on returning.

Absolutely a Dream House

  • 5 of 5

The house is stunning, the views from the decks are outstanding, and the vineyard is just the icing on the cake. We were two couples and a single friend and the house fit us to a t.

We had a wonderful time and hope to return again. Thank you.
