Calistoga estate description

Escape for the weekend or plan a family vacation at our private vineyard located in Knights Valley between Napa and Sonoma, world-class wine regions with hundreds of wineries, outstanding restaurants, and farmer's markets. Amidst it's mountain surroundings, our vineyard is only 4-miles from Calistoga at the north end of the Napa Valley.

Our 60 acre property is a working vineyard with 20-acres of vines lined by our own olive grove and apple tree orchard. We harvest the grapes each fall to make our own gold medal Lawer Family Wines. Wake up to the sun sweeping over the vines and go to sleep under the stars. Enjoy the pool with its sweeping view of the vineyards. Though it's private, you can easily grab local roasted coffee and breakfast just minutes away in Calistoga.

The original 1940s two story farmhouse on the property is custom decorated and has 2 bedrooms each with a queen size bed and 2 bathrooms. The fully stocked kitchen is replete with everything you need to make a gourmet dinner with local ingredients picked up during the day. The living and dining rooms (seats 6) are perfect to accommodate you during your stay. The adjacent cottage, which is always rented with the main house, and not separately, has 1 bedroom with a queen size bed, 1 bathroom, a kitchen, wood stove, and outdoor patio seating among the vines and olive trees.

Come celebrate holidays or special occasions with your family and friends. Start with appetizers outside overlooking the vines at one of the outdoor dining tables, play a game of bocce ball at sunset and toast the day with a great feast around the dinner table. In the fall, we encourage our guests to pick apples from the apple trees throughout the property.

Fly direct to the Charles Schultz Sonoma/Santa Rosa airport from Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, or Las Vegas on Horizon Air. Walk off the plane, drive 25 minutes to our private vineyard property, and you'll be ready to start your vacation - unless you decide to go wine tasting along the way. Alternatively, you may opt to fly into San Francisco, Oakland or Sacramento Airport and drive approximately 2 hours to the property. A welcome gift of our gold medal winning wine awaits you upon arrival.

                          Wow! We wanted to experience the wine country and this was the place! The owner was extremely responsive and very nice.

                          Less than 10 minutes from Calistoga we passed the gates to the property and knew this was going to be special. After driving a few acres past rolling hills into the live vineyard, we saw the adorable farmhouse and cottage with the pool between them. The day was rather warm and the first thing we did was to jump in the pool. From the pool, we could admire the views of the hills and felt lucky to have such a large area to ourselves. The pool was enjoyable, very clean and clear. Once we finally got out, we found nice plush beach towels. After moving inside we enjoyed the gift of wine which was actually from the owner’s own label. Each room in the house has plenty of windows to continue enjoying the views. Downstairs there was a cozy living room with nice rocking chairs. If we had stayed longer, we probably would have cooked more since the kitchen is fully stocked with everything. The bedrooms were upstairs with comfy beds and soft linens.

                          In the mornings, all the healthy bears would run on the trails that weave thru the vineyard. The trails go up hills with views of apple trees that are spread throughout the property. A favorite spot was the relaxing porch where we found nice big chairs and could gaze out to the hillside.

                          We had a special evening the night we used the grill and the outdoor dining area. There was accent lighting on the house that made it feel like a special holiday as we dined outdoors. One benefit of being out alone on 60 quiet acres is that you can hear crickets in the evening and birds in the morning.
