Middletown chateau / country house description

Welcome to 3 Springs Ranch!
PLEASE NOTE: VRBO is not set up to accommodate our variable price structure hence, the quoted rate at the top of this page is for rental of the Main House only (2 persons, 2 dogs). For larger parties, the adjoining Bunkhouse is available for an additional fee. Please see our website for complete details.
3 Springs Ranch is a lovely, clean, casual and contemporary home nestled on a hillside with truly beautiful views of south Lake County and Mt. St. Helena. Just 2 hours from the Bay Area, the ranch is the perfect hide-away for those wanting to escape hectic urban life. Surrounded by 80 oak-studded acres and no neighbors in sight, you can relax in the peace and quiet of your own private retreat.

Come hike the private trails, cook a gourmet meal in the fully equipped kitchen, enjoy a glass of wine on the patio with friends and family, and stargaze away from city lights. 3 Springs Ranch is a relaxing and private retreat for those who want to get away from it all or the perfect gathering spot for family and friends.

3 Springs Ranch is dog-friendly, so pack up those canine companions. With 80 acres of land to roam leash free, it’s a great spot for dog-lovers and their 4 footed friends!

The ranch offers flexible accommodations. Traveling solo or just the two of you? Rent out the one bedroom main house, with a large well-stocked kitchen, a great room with a wall of windows to view the valley, and outdoor seating on the deck. For larger parties, rent both the main house and the adjoining bunkhouse to give you 2 extra bedrooms and a bath for guests.

Although 3 Springs is perfect for relaxing and unwinding, you're still only a short distance away from wine tasting, shopping, golfing, fishing, and other recreational activities.

Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you soon!

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Our family has always enjoyed gathering together with good food, good friends, and good wine! Since most of us have canine companions as part of our families, it wasn't easy finding a vacation spot to accommodate everyone with space to relax and roam. After an extensive search, we found this lovely oak-studded property with natural springs and decided to create a family retreat. We designed and built the houses to take advantage of the natural beauty of the surroundings, with plenty of open space and light. Our family, friends, and dogs have enjoyed years of coming together at 3 Springs ranch and we wanted to share the same great experience with others.

                  Why the Owner Chose Middletown:
                  We chose this area because Lake County still has that small town feel. It is uncrowded, unpretentious, and still largely untouched by major development like other vacation destinations around the bay area. We specifically chose this property because it offered exactly what we were looking for - peaceful seclusion, abundant wildlife, a pristine natural setting, gorgeous views, and open space for our dogs to enjoy too.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  The most obvious benefit is the sense of peace and relaxation we feel at the ranch. Spending quality time with family and friends in such a beautiful and serene location is a close second! And, of course, its a wonderful place to take our dogs hiking with incredible views and landscapes for us and lots of good smells for them. We love the natural springs that provide all the water for the houses- no chemicals, just pure spring water. 3 Springs provides us with that perfect blend of getting in tune with the natural environment and still having modern conveniences, and we will be enjoying it for years to come!
