The Vineyard Perch is a tastefully decorated home that is at once both large and cozy. Strategically placed on a stunning perch overlooking the vineyards of the Alexander Valley and the hillsides of Sonoma, the home is reminiscent of a country estate and comes complete with all the amenities to make your vacation getaway special. With the seasonal creek that runs through the property and feeds into the Russian River, the 8-acre parcel and its surrounding area couldn't be more perfect. 90 miles north of San Francisco and just 10 miles from Healdsburg's square, the Perch is located in the best part of Sonoma County in a little town called Geyserville. Surrounded by beautiful, serene mountain views, you are able to enjoy an escape that includes all manner of nature, including bald eagles / hawks / osprey circling overhead, horses in neighboring pastures, and foxes and wild turkeys traversing the property.
There are 2 master suites and 3 other large bedrooms. The kitchen is a chef's dream and may have the best views on the property. The sunken family room is large, cozy and strategically located next to the kitchen for easy entertaining. The living room / dining room area is a beautiful open space that highlights the panoramic views overlooking the Alexander valley and the pool area. And, the entire house is set up for indoor - outdoor living with french doors leading from the dining room, living room, pool and main level master bedroom right out to the back patio and pool area.
And, there is plenty of space to get away.
If you ever decide to leave the comfort of the Perch, there is something for everyone to do. - For the wine aficionado there are an unbelievable number of great wineries within 10-12 miles that touch on all aspects: great boutique wineries (Robert Young, Hawkes), fun wineries (Meeker, Francis Ford Coppola, Unti), Zin'o'philes (Rafanelli, Ridge, Pasalaqua, Bella), Cab fans (Silver Oak, Hanna, Lancaster), Pinot (Ferrari Carano, Dutcher Crossing, Michel Schlumber), and Chardonnay (Stonestreet, Ferrari Carano, Quivera).
- For the foodies, there are all types in the spectrum from the casual to the fine dining: Dry Creek Kitchen, John Ash on the formal side, to some of our local favorites including Catelli's and Diavola in town (Geyserville), and Rustic on campus at Francis Ford Coppola.
- For the active / outdoor members of your group, we are adjacent to miles of hiking, biking, horseback riding paths, and all types of boating at Lake Sonoma.
This special property is conveniently located off highway 101 and yet feels as though it is a world away.

About the owner: We are a family that love the outdoors. We love getting away to the Perch and hiking, bike riding or swimming
We love to cook and entertain and to have friends / family join us on our getaways. Also, we enjoy exploring the local restaurants, which has yielded some new favorites like Catelli's (absolutely amazing Italian food) and Diavola (crazy good pizza and salumi).
Why the Owner Chose Geyserville: Like many kids from San Francisco, from the time I was born, the Russian River has always a special get-away for me, as I grew up visiting my grandparents at a cabin that became the family vacation home. We chose Geyserville as it is an easy drive from San Francisco, has amazing weather, and is surrounded by a ton of things to do for the adults and the family. Long known as a destination for road-bikers, the rest of us are just now catching on to the beauty, serenity, and wealth of active alternatives in the area. And, who wouldn't like all the great wineries in the area?
