October 21, 2011 – New York Times, Emily Brady:

“Sonoma County may be best known for its wineries and the tony (sic) towns of Healdsburg and Sonoma, but West County, as locals call the area around Sebastopol, is where the vineyards begin to give way to rolling hills, bohemian enclaves and the wild Pacific Coast beyond. Sure, there’s wine produced here — excellent pinots in particular — but there’s plenty to explore beyond it, especially around Sebastopol, where in recent years new restaurants, shops and live music venues have opened, securing the town’s position as West County’s arts and culture hub.”

National Geographic Traveler - 2012

Sonoma, California

American as Apple Pie

“‘I’ve been to Napa and Sonoma,’ you hear people say, as if they were one and the same. Sure, Sonoma’s 300-plus wineries, like those of vine-centric Napa, offer peak wine tasting, from Ravenswood’s deep Zinfandels to Gloria Ferrer’s sophisticated sparklers. But if you’ve visited only the county’s wineries, come back to sample the astounding diversity that makes Sonoma one of America’s travel treasures.

Spend some time floating in an inner tube down the Russian River and walking amid ancient giants—one over 1,400 years old—at Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. Poke around the old Russian stockade at Fort Ross, which turns 200 in 2012, or the Spanish adobe mission, San Francisco Solano, in Sonoma town. Hunt for antiques along Petaluma’s downtown Victorian row, and dine on seasonal sake-steamed, aged abalone at Michelin-starred Cyrus in Healdsburg. And don’t miss a flaky, fruit-packed slice of Gravenstein pie from Mom’s Apple Pie, a roadside stop outside Sebastopol. It ranks up there with a Russian River Valley Pinot Noir as a real taste of Sonoma.”

A beautiful house with great indoor outdoor

We had a great time at Wineberry. The thougtfulnesss into every detail was lovely. From the soft bedsheets to the robes for the hot tub and personal greeting. Also, we enjoyed the location and proximity to Sebastopol.

Fantastic stay - perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. Heidi was really nice and easy to reserve our stay with. She had everything set-up perfectly, no detail was left unattended to. There was absolutely everything we could need and more in the house - fully stocked as if you were in your own home. Everything was very clean and in place. There were guides and information for the area and all the wineries around. There was more than enough space for my family (husband and two kids) and my in-laws (parents, brother in-law and wife and their kid). My daughter was over the moon with the bedroom in the "reading room." They had outdoor equipment to use - bikes and games and the hot tub was nice and in perfect location to hang out in the outdoor space. I can't say enough about the outdoor kitchen. The pictures don't do it justice. Even that space came equipped with everything you could need. Short drive into town and even a few wineries you could walk to. We absolutely loved it and can't wait to come back. Thanks, Heidi!

This is a great house!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 5 women celebrated a 50th birthday here. The house was perfect! Heidi was great to work with both before our arrival and during. She even decorated for the birthday girl! The house was as advertised, if not better. Clean, spacious and modern The outdoor kitchen area was fantastic. It was a little chilly during our visit and Heidi provided a portable heater for us so we could enjoy the outdoor space. The hot tub was a bonus as well. We loved the location - one day we had coffee on the deck, drove to the ocean (Bodega Bay), then went to Armstrong Redwood Forest for a hike, followed by a few winery visits. Another day was spent touring wineries in Napa. Our final day included local shopping in neighboring towns and of course a few more winery stops. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks for everything Heidi!

This property is beautiful and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property is beautiful. I was honestly the best part of our trip. The outdoor area is absolutely amazing with room for our entire family to gather and to eat and have a good time. The owner was so nice and welcoming. We loved staying here and would stay again if we come to the area.

Fantastic property and host

  • 5 of 5

Heidi was a kind, thorough, and helpful host. The property was very well maintained and had lots of extra surprises. We were unlucky with the weather (rain!) but lucky with the property ... so much to do! We had lots of great family time by the fireplace. Our kids spent hours playing games in the loft area. Our highlight was baking pizzas outside in the well appointed open air kitchen/dining area. We had an incredible time all around!

Great experience.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Wineberry Lodge and Blackberry Cottage over the Thanksgiving week. Our experience was truly extraordinary. Heidi and Brent have taken extra steps to insure that this property is above and beyond your expectations. We were greeted with welcoming gifts of wine and fruit and a unit fully stocked with bottled water and all the necessities to make our stay perfect. The outdoor kitchen is unbelievable and we used it every night we were there. Brent was so helpful with our Thanksgiving meal, preparing many of the items himself. He also gave us instructions in how to use the brick oven and we prepared pizzas one night. We were very secure with the Boyles as the gate to the house is keypad controlled. Anything we needed was provided. I am so happy that we chose this place as it made our stay so much more enjoyable. Thanks, Heidi and Brent, for sharing your property with us.
