Sebastopol estate description

PLEASE NOTE: The $995/per night rate posted is the nightly MINIMUM for up to 8 guests using 3+ bedrooms of the main estate home and does not include farmhouse or all 9 bedrooms.Additional guests including children are $95/night ea. The rate for both houses and 8-9 bedrooms for up to 18 adult guests is $1995/night. The VRBO rate calculator can be confusing and hopefully is being updated. When using the rate calculator please be as specific as possible as to number of guests and private bedrooms required so we can provide an accurate budget for your stay. Because there are two separate houses available for our farm stay guests we can also accommodate smaller groups and couples. It is always best to call or send a VRBO email request so we can work out a budget accruing to your needs.

The B Vineyards & Habitat main Estate house is a large, well loved modern Mediterranean style family home with high ceilings, open floorplan, galleries, courtyards, and outdoor living space. It is situated on a knoll overlooking vineyards, a large trellised pool, private recreational lake, Atascadero creek, and rich wildlife and riparian habitat. The original mid-century retro-style ranch farmhouse is also available for hosting additional farmstay retreat guests. It is very close to the main house, just down the driveway, and has modest bedrooms and an ample kitchen. It shares use of the main estate pool and spa as well as the lake and habitat.

Please be sure to visit the linked sites below for additional photos and information. The farmhouse is being updated and additional photos will be added shortly.

The family estate home is perfect for hosting reunions, business, healing, educational, and fine art retreats all within our farm stay program. The main wing of the estate home features multiple large bedrooms with multiple beds private baths and a large dining gallery and family style gourmet kitchen. Art and photo studios are also available to be scheduled for use by guests and there are open areas indoors and out suitable for yoga and dance. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate amplified music for outside parties.

A separate retro style farmhouse on the property provides additional sleeping rooms for larger groups. On-site host, meals, catering and logistical help is available as needed by your itinerary and schedule. Your retreat and visit to the vineyard/farm are organized according to your needs and interests. Please contact us for further detail.

The home, bucolic views, riparian habitat and property are the perfect backdrop for film production, wildlife photography, art, writing, teaching, education, healing and retreats. The main estate home is a large with gallery style open interior in the main wing with 3 private bedroom/s with baths available, and plus 2 sleeping alcoves with European style convertible sofa beds.

The farmhouse close to the main house has up to 5 modest guest bedrooms, 3 and a half baths, and kitchen available. The Estate's expansive trellised patios, lawns, trails, pool and open space habitat are all shared by the farm stay guests.

The estate is situated just northwest of Sebastopol, minutes away from the town of Graton, Santa Rosa, Occidental, North of Petaluma in the heart of world class organic cuisine, restaurants, wineries, farms and spas. Access to the Sonoma coast beaches, Russian River, Sonoma wine Appellations, is minutes away and the estate is just 60 miles from SFO. Walking and cycling opportunities abound with many cycling events and tours passing the property directly. The estate feels secluded and private for relaxation but is only minutes away from world class wine tasting, cuisine, recreation, golf, cycling, spas, sightseeing, surfing and whale watching along the rugged picturesque Sonoma coast.

Resident owners on the property are on hand to host families and groups and assist with logistics, tours, meals, catering, shopping and stocking the pantry with fresh local produce, meats, cheeses and wines. Please don't hesitate to contact us directly to discuss the specific needs of your group.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1996

          About the owner: Gerald Bybee is an award winning photographer and digital fine artist turned winegrower. Shaun Bybee is a producer, manager, concierge, organic gardner and cook. They are available on site to help with logistics of your stay and to host water sports, photo seminars and productions.

          Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol:
          This site, formerly the last certified Raw Milk Dairy in Sonoma County, is a unique mix of agriculture, open space, residential and recreational assets. The riparian habitat, dense bird life, and opportunity to create a sustainable agricultural enterprise brought us from SF to West Sonoma County.

          The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
          This property provides a secluded retreat for larger families and groups with a wide variety of recreational opportunities on site as well as access to the coast, Russian River, wineries, fine restaurants and bucolic rural landscape. It also offers seclusion and privacy. The farm stay program can provide all you need for a relaxing or active getaway. We are well located with a large nature landscape, yet mere minutes to downtown Sebastopol. The brand new Barlow center has just opened in our downtown area: http://thebarlow.net/tenants/, and offers a plethora of local food, artisans and wine.
