Occidental farmhouse description

Sited on a sunny ridge on over three acres with heirloom apple trees, towering redwoods, and organic gardens, this peaceful, tasteful country retreat is close to Pacific Coast Beaches, wineries, Osmosis spa, and gourmet restaurants.

You'll arrive to find fresh eggs from our chickens; enjoy picking your own vegetables, fruits and herbs in season from our organic gardens.... Relax in a hammock and watch the hawks circle overhead....At night, you may hear owls and coyotes who make their home in the 60 acre forest adjacent to our land; stars twinkle in a truly dark sky.

The vacation rental space features soaring 12' high wooden ceilings, slate floors, original artwork and solid wooden furniture designed by the owner. The spacious living room with wood stove, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom all look out over a sunny patio and redwood glen. The sun-drenched patio overlooking redwoods offers a perfect place for outdoor dining.

West Sonoma County is renowned for its miles of protected Pacific Coast Beaches, Sonoma Wine Country, the Russian River, apple orchards, redwoods, organic family farms and some of the best cycling in California. Our property is minutes from Pacific Coast beaches, gourmet restaurants and wineries. Osmosis Spa and the villages of Freestone and Occidental are right down the road. Great vintage and antique shopping abounds in the many local boutiques.

Home to the husband-and-wife artist team of Wowhaus, the property offers a contemporary artists’ twist on the traditional family farm - a place where growing and making are part of daily life.

              Owner info

              About the owner: We are a husband-and-wife art/design team who live and work on the property adjacent to the vacation rental; we'll be happy to show you work in progress if time allows.... Scott is an accomplished woodworker and Ene is an avid organic gardener. Ask us about our favorite cycling and hiking routes, wine country day trips, and the many unique nurseries and farms to visit in the region...

              Why the Owner Chose Occidental:
              We were struck by the friendly, open quality of the West Sonoma County community - avid winemakers and chefs are friends with surfers, ranchers and organic farmers...At night, the quiet, dark sky is filled with stars, a true luxury. Landscape painters and nature photographers seek out this unique landscape for its natural beauty; come visit and you'll understand why.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              West Sonoma County is the undiscovered Wine Country....we love the rolling hills and unspoiled countryside dotted with farms, the redwood forests and Russian River - perfect for cycling and hiking, and all only 10 minutes from Pacific Coast Beaches. Doran Beach, 10 minutes away, is dog friendly and sought out by bird watchers and surfers alike. Osmosis Spa, just down the hill in the village of Freestone, has a beautiful Japanese Garden along with relaxing spa treatments; afterward, stop at Freestone Bakery for fresh-baked wood-fired organic bread. We love sharing our favorite bicycle routes, organic farm tours, and, of course, restaurants and wineries that abound here.
