Sebastopol house description
There has never been a better time that to visit Sebastopol. Sebastopol has the exuberant charm of an old fashioned farming town. Thanks to Russian trappers, who first planted the Gravenstein apple in the 1800s, it became known as the Gravenstein capital of the world. But times change and beginning in the late 60s to the present time, apples continue to give way to grapes, particularly Burgundy varietals. Since the mid 1990s, Sebastopol has become a “new theater for wine grapes…first in blends, then in vineyard-designated wines.” (S.F Chronicle, 8.29.2008). Home ranches for some of the most notable wineries are located in and around Sebastopol.
The house is located at the gateway to the Russian River and Sonoma Coast wine regions of Sonoma County, CA. To help triangulate the location, it is 15 miles inland (east) of Bodega Bay on the Sonoma coast. Bodega is one of the entry points for fresh catch seafood entering the Bay Area and Wine Country destinations: hotels, restaurants, and markets large and small, including country farmers markets. It is 58 miles north of downtown San Francisco, 3 miles west of the town of Sebastopol, 39 miles west of the town of St. Helena in the Napa Valley. The picturesque town of Healdsburg is just 25 miles to the north with its world-class shopping, ambiance, and restaurants.
You enter the property from the road through a coded gate and proceed up a long driveway where the house is situated amid 100 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris vineyards. It is part of a working ranch so farming activity may be present from time to time. While close to vibrant towns and farmers markets, the property itself is quietly isolated from city lights and noise, where each visitor can relax and find their own spot in the peace and privacy of your own country home, and get used to the sounds of silence at night. The house is light and airy, with hardwood floors throughout, a modern kitchen & amenities, gourmet cookware, two full baths, and granite countertops in both the kitchen and bathrooms. It has a satellite, flat panel plasma Sony TV, and a Bose sound system. Outside there is a patio covered with a trellis of Wisteria, and a Dimension spa on the deck, a perfect spot to see the Big Dipper in the night sky.
Sebastopol and the surrounding area is rich in artisan farms including organic, biodynamic, and sustainably farmed products, which include livestock, poultry, row crops, tree fruits, cheeses, micro dairies, and artisanal breads and olive oils. In addition to the garden-fresh foods that abound in the area, dozens of award-winning wineries are nearby or an easy, bucolic, and uncongested drive through the Sonoma Coast and along the Russian River, through Dry Creek Valley, and the Alexander Valley just outside Healdsburg. Country markets in Sebastopol, Healdsburg, Occidental, and Santa Rosa introduce visitors to the variety of micro producers so prominent in the area.
The house provides solitude in an environment of innovative but accessible foods, world-class winemaking and viticulture, and an outdoor paradise of hiking, biking, or strolling.

Excellent family vacation
Excellent family vacation
This residence was just perfect -- it was beautiful and a good fit for our family of 5 adults. It gave us a quiet place to relax and talk with several areas for each of us to enjoy on our own as well as together. We used the kitchen and outdoor grill for meals except when we ate at the Farmhouse Inn B & B --- a wonderful dinner! Shopping was easy -- ten minutes to town --- Safeway and Whole Foods are convenient and we enjoyed the Artisana gift shop as well as nearby restaurants/wine bar/coffee shops. The location is very private, quiet, secure and well-furnished. It is iin the middle of a vineyard and the landscaping all around the home is just beautiful and well kept. Note: You may want to bring eyeshades if you like to sleep beyond sunrise! We enjoyed perfect weather every day --- a great time to be in Sebastopol. The owner was accessible on email for any questions we had which worked out very well. We all recommend it highly.

Perfect home for exploring Sonoma
Perfect home for exploring Sonoma
I stayed at this beautiful home last weekend with five friends who were riding the Gran Fondo in Santa Rosa. The home is beautiful and well appointed, not to mention surrounded by vineyards. We cooked dinner Friday night and I found the kitchen to be very functional and well appointed including All Clad cookware. The spa is very nice and was heated and worked perfectly. One of the neighbors had a puppy that kept showing up to visit with us. We loved her visits and were sad to leave her at the end of the trip. All in all this is a beautiful home and we are definitely hoping to use it again next year when we come back, only hopefully staying a little longer. Thanks for the use of this beautiful home.

We had the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful place from the 2nd to the 5th of July. The pictures don't do it justice. Not only is the house lovely, with king sized beds in all the bedrooms, a wonderful, fully equipped kitchen and manicured grounds; it also sits in the middle of a vineyard!!! Complete privacy, without being too far from anything in or near Sebastopol, with it's excellent restaurants and shopping.There are also many fine wineries near by. David was great to work with. We hope to be making return trips to this little piece of paradise.

We rented this place for paasport weekend in dry creek because nothing close was availble. This place was well worth the 40 minute drive into dry creek, the pictures do not do it justice. The grounds are absolutely perfect, great deck and hot tub. The place has great accomodations, quality comfortable mattresses and bedding, a great kitchen with everything you need for cooking and a ton of space. The owner was very hepful in giving you all of the details of the property as well as surrounding vineyards, places of interest and recommended food. I plan on booking again next year for dry creek regardless of available rentals that are closer.
