PLEASE NOTE: There are two homes on the estate. The $995/per night rate posted is the nightly MINIMUM for up to 8 guests using 3+ bedrooms of the 5,000 sq.ft. main estate home and does not include the farmhouse or all 9+ bedrooms. Additional guests (including children of all ages) 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 when availability allows and on short notice. It is always best to call or send a VRBO email request so we can work out a budget according to your specific needs.
We give precedence to weekly bookings and larger groups. During the month of January we are arranging and confirming weekly reservations for both homes beginning with May and working forward through the summer and fall. Once the first weekly requests have been accommodated, confirmed and scheduled we will attempt to fit in shorter 3 day minimum bookings for other groups giving precedence for groups requesting the use of both homes. We will also accept two day and short notice bookings if they can fit within other reservations. We appreciate your patience as we work to best accommodate the many guest requests we are receiving.
The B Vineyards & Habitat main Estate house is a very large, well loved modern Mediterranean style family home with high ceilings, open floorplan, galleries, courtyards, and outdoor dining & living space. It is situated on a knoll overlooking bucolic vineyards, a large trellised pool, private recreational lake used for boating, water skiing, paddling, canoeing and swimming, Atascadero creek, and a vibrant wildlife and riparian habitat. The original mid-century retro-style ranch farmhouse is also available for hosting additional farmstay retreat guests. It is just steps away from the main house, down a path and has large modest bedrooms and an ample kitchen and patio. It shares use of the main estate pool and spa as well as the lake, recreation 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.

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 natural and mature organic vineyard 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, wine, galleries and artisans.
