                    We throughly enjoyed our stay in this little gem of a house. The highlights for us was the massive backyard and pool. Everything was well maintained and the shrubs and trees attracted a number of birds, which were fun to watch. The water in the pool stayed at a good temperature even after cool nights. Speakers and a grill made for the perfect July 4th getaway. The house was well furnished with everything we needed. One of the bedrooms has a full sized bed so it may be small for a couple. There was plenty of place to sleep though with the daybed and the queen size sofa bed. The owners were very helpful with recommendations for places around and answering questions. Overall it was a wonderful experience.

                    We stayed with another couple and their baby, and we had so much room for all of us with some to spare for friends to come over and entertain. Had all accomodations and great location anyone could ask for in Sonoma County. One of my best trips ever!

                    We spent our Thanksgiving holiday in Glen Ellen- my first trip to the CA wine country. My family of three (my husband, 16 year-old daughter and me) shared this lovely home with my sister. We had the rest of our family renting a larger home on Robertson Rd which was great as we could walk between them. This home is all it says it is and more. Yannick was a lovely and welcoming hostess. The house is bigger than we thought it would be as it has two living areas, one that my daughter settled into as her room. She took the front room which has a day bed that she found quite cozy and was separate enough from the kitchen and other living area that she wasn't bothered by earlier risers. The second living area is full of windows and light and opens to the beautiful patio and yard. This is a charming and cozy place painted in beautiful warm colors and full of interesting treasures with everything you need. We hosted breakfast one sunny morning on the patio after a family yoga session in the living room. Our place was the respite from the bigger, busier home where the rest of the family was staying. We enjoyed watching the birds in the yard, the 2 year-old (and my teenager) both jumped in the pool even in November! and the place just couldn't have been better. The owners are close by if you need them and they have a shelf full of tourist and area information to help you find your way around. The house is right in town, a quick walk to the wonderful market and anywhere you might want to go in town. Jack London State Park is right up the road and a great place for walks or bike rides, Glen Ellen has several wineries in and around town and several wonderful restaurants. It is also a short drive to Sonoma in one direction or Santa Rosa in another. I can't say enough good things about this charming home and its location and would recommend it to anyone.

                    Recommended for: Romantic getaway, tourists without a car, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, adventure seekers, families with young children.
