THE HOME IS READY AND WAITING FOR OUR NEXT GUESTS. PLEASE READ ON TO SEE ALL WE OFFER.
THIS beautiful 2 bedroom. 2.5 bath home is located on a private California ranch near the Wine Country. The ranch is over 300 acres, so privacy in this wonderful country setting is a treat unto itself. BUT there is so much more. The property is located just off Interstate 80 and California Highway 12. Both are major connectors to all the fun, beauty & excitement California has to offer. Hwy 12 is the route to the Wine Country & 20 minutes of driving will find you in Napa.

Year Purchased: 1960
About the owner: My sister and I own the ranch. We have had so many wonderful experiences over the years we thought others might enjoy this unusual but convenient destination. Numerous attractions and destinations are noted on the map.
Why the Owner Chose American Canyon:
This vacation rental was not purchased as a vacation rental, it's a ranch. My family bought the ranch in 1960. Cattle graze on the acres, horses are raised and a sophisticated country life is enjoyed. Our location is one of the best in our area. Twenty minutes to an hours drive to destinations travelers hope to see when visiting the Northern California Napa Valley and San Francisco Bay Area. My professional background is hotel management. So with my experience, knowledge and attention to detail every aspect of your stay is scrutinized, from the amenities throughout the house (cotton balls, Q-tips, bottle water, cooking spices, condiments) to the beautiful arrival gift made complete with a select bottle of Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
11 miles to Napa, 25 miles to St Helena, 33 miles to San Francisco, 50 miles to Pacific Ocean, 60 miles to Sacramento...easy connections to Highways 80, 680, 12. Lake Tahoe about a 2 hour drive.
