Property description

Our spacious well-appointed 2700 sq. ft. 4 bedroom home will make your vacation dreams come true. It is located on 1.5 acres in a private community at the top of the hills west of Sonoma, and sits 1300 feet above the valley floor. It is surrounded by mature Oak and Bay trees giving you beautiful wooded views from every window. There are sweeping views of the hills and the south end of the Sonoma valley, the Carneros wine region and the north end of the San Francisco bay waters. Our hills are bustling with deer, wild turkeys, squirrels and many, many species of birds. Our guests say that our house feels like a '5 star' hotel: that’s exactly what we’d hoped. As you enter the front doors you are greeted with the warmth and welcoming feel of this home. There are neighbors but with the beautiful mature vegetation you can’t see other houses. You will feel like you’re in a world of your own. We are 5 miles from Sonoma’s central square where there are world class restaurants & shops.


More About Us: Our kitchen has always been a favorite gathering spot. Lots of counter space, a great expanse of windows, a fireplace and our “pub” table all provide the perfect atmosphere. Our spacious dining room lends itself to romantic dinners or upbeat gatherings.

The living room and sunroom overlook our large deck and the expansive views of the valley and distant mountain ranges. The morning sunrise is spectacular. If you prefer to sleep late, just grab a robe and enjoy the valley views with your first cup of coffee.

The Sonoma valley is known as the Valley of the Moon. There is nothing more breathtaking than the big orange moon rising over the hills in the evening and flooding our deck with its glow. You’ll have a bird’s eye view.

Our Bedrooms are Inviting: Each bedroom has a personality of it’s own. Every bed has a down feather comforter to give you warmth without the weight and down feather pillows that will perfectly adjust to your preferences. All bedrooms have additional seating that will give you comfortable places to get-away from the group if you need a quiet time to talk or read.

The wine country is a destination in itself: add to that this really terrific house and you have the perfect combination.

Owner info

About the owner: My husband's family has owned this house for over 20 years, but I now manage it as our vacation rental. His family still lives throughout northern California, but we now live in Boulder, Colorado with our two wonderful daughters, ages 4 and 6. Although I grew up in New Hampshire and spent many years in the Adirondacks of New York, I lived in California for several years before moving in Colorado in 2005. I taught environmental education in amazing outdoor places such as Yosemite, and then worked to conserve land in Colorado after our move to Boulder in 2005. I also fill my time by volunteering at my kids' school and with local non-profits that gets kids outdoors and into nature. My family and I travel back to California often, and still visit Pepperwood Place where we have created many fond memories over the years.

Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
My mother-in-law lived in this wonderful home for over 20 years and everyday felt like a vacation. When she moved to Pacific Grove in 2006 she decided to turn her Sonoma home into a vacation rental. You will see from the reviews written by our guests that this is a special place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house is nestled among beautiful old oak trees. The views are wonderful. The wildlife is ever present. You can't help but relax when you're here.
