Redwood Valley farmhouse description

This home was built in 1927 by my Great Grandparents. It is a three bedroom one bath house. It has a beautiful view of the pond and vineyards. You can relax under the shade of the walnut trees and watch the wildlife in the pond.

You will enjoy staying in this original farmhouse with its authentic furnishings, claw foot bath tub, and walk in pantry.

You will be staying on a working vineyard and winery, so there is much to experience throughout the year.

We are happy to have you come spend some time on our ranch!

                    The Testa Farmhouse is such a comfortable and charming getaway! We had two families (including many small children) stay here and felt right at home. The children could explore the grounds freely and loved it! The roosters were endless fun. The home is well furnished and so charming. We enjoyed day trips to see redwood forests, the ocean, and San Francisco. Pure fun! Maria is a wonderful host. We were so appreciative of her understanding in our scheduling hiccups. I'd recommend her farmhouse to anyone!

                    We came down to the Ukiah area for my grandmother's burial service, and we were reluctant to stay at the local motels based on the reviews I'd read online. So, we looked for a house where at least three groups in the family could stay: my parents, my family of 4, and my aunt and her close childhood friend. After we arrived in town, we realized how blessed we were to stay at Testa House. This is probably the nicest lodging in all of the Ukiah area! The house, even though quite old, had been marvelously renovated and decorated. It was spotlessly clean! We walked in after many hours of driving, and it was a heavenly haven. We were able to peek out the windows (and walk outside a bit) to see the owner and some workers harvesting the wine grapes. Wish we'd had more time to take an official tour of the winery, but we needed to leave for the graveside service. This is a gorgeous house, and you will feel instantly at ease and at home...or maybe even better than at home!

                    My wife and another couple stayed at the Testa house a few weeks back. Really great house! The owners gave us a private tour and barrel sampling of their wine (which was very yummy!) The house has lot of character, but in a good way. It's very comfortable and REALLY CLEAN. Our dog loved running through the vineyards too. If you're up in Redwood Valley, I highly recommend this place.

                    Our stay at this lovely house was wonderful. We were there with our parents and Alton's sister who were visiting from Georgia and Tennessee. It was so relaxing. The bed on the porch was a great place to enjoy early morning coffee and conversation while snuggled under those beautiful quilts. Maria has beautifully furnished the home and stocked it with everything needed for a home away from home. Maria gave us a great tour of the property including the wine cellar complete with tasting. She and her husband were gracious host meeting all our needs and answering all our questions. It was evident that maintaining Maria's ancestral home is a true labor of love for them. We will always remember our time there spent with precious family.

                    We had a wonderful time at the house celebrating a friend's birthday this last weekend! The house is very cute and comfortable and a great place to stay with a small group of friends. There are wineries nearby and it is a short, windy, and beautiful drive to Anderson Valley. We enjoyed hanging out on the porch looking out at the vineyards, building a fire outside and cooking in the well-stocked kitchen. The house is clean, even more adorable in person than in the photos and Maria is an fantastic host--making us feel welcome and at home!

                    I recently celebrated my 40th birthday here at Testa House with three of my girlfriends. We had the time of our lives! First of all, the farmhouse is absolutely precious. From the black and white tiled floor in the kitchen to the bed on the sleeping porch, everything is just charming. Maria is a doll and provides so many little extras in the house: fresh flowers, fresh fruit, blankets for snuggling on the couch, coffee in the kitchen, games in the living room, bath salts for the clawfoot tub, etc. The master bed is HUGE and oh so comfy. All the beds in house are, in fact, very comfy. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans; there was even a salad spinner and a juicer! The grounds are just as delightful. There are two roosters, four ADORABLE baby pigs and a cow who is not a fan of people, but who was starting to get used to us by the end of our stay. Maria's garden is amazing! We picked a couple squash and sautéed them in olive oil - so yummy! There is a large pond with a row boat. My girlfriends and I used the row boat and went out on the pond right before we left. It was lovely and peaceful out there, the perfect end to our stay. Maria is an amazing hostess and she always nearby or just a phone call away if you need something. I accidentally locked myself out of the house once and she just happened to be gardening then, and whipped out another set of keys for me in no time flat. My girls and I went to Orr Hot Springs (so relaxing!) and had sushi dinner at Oco (yummy!) in downtown Ukiah. None of my crew are drinkers, but if you are into wine tasting, you will be in heaven. I simply cannot recommend Testa House enough. I cannot wait to come back. MJ

                    A wonderful old farmhouse in a vineyard overlooking vines and a pond (with small boat). Convenient to Hwy. 101, but not too close. We stayed here for a couple of weeks while our girls were in school. The hosts could not have been more cordial or helpful. Fresh flowers from Maria's garden decorated the house. Checkout the park in Ukiah (good pool). Good Japanese restaurant a couple of blocks south of the Courthouse. The SUn House is worth a visit.

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: I am a mother of four, married for twenty five years. My favorite hobby is gardening. I grew up on the ranch, working alongside my family.

                  Why the Owner Chose Redwood Valley:
                  This house has been in my family since it was built in 1927. It is one of the original homes in Calpella. The barn on the property is a walk in the past of how the original vineyards were cared for, with horse and plows. My grandfather's work station is just how he left it. We love to share the memories.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  You will enjoy the view of the pond and vineyards surrounding the home. You will also enjoy staying in this original farmhouse with its authentic furnishings, claw foot bath tub, and walk in pantry. You can sit and relax under the shade of the walnut trees, go fishing or join in as we care for the vineyards and make our wine!
