Glen Ellen chateau / country house description

Romance with nature at your own 12-acre wine country retreat! Enjoy sunset views, peace, and the beauty of the wine country all on your own private, country get-away! We call it Cinque Terre.We are on the mountain that divides Sonoma and Napa counties yet 15 minutes to Hwy 12 with wine tasting rooms, fine dining and gourmet grocery store.

This nature-lovers getaway is ideal for a couple (or maximum of four) and features separate 'casitas.' Each room (Kitchen, Bed House, Barn, Bath House) is separate, but only steps away from each other. The Bed House with a king-size bed and full bath has a private deck entrance to the hot tub and frech doors and plate-glass window viewing the Valley of the Moon. The Barn House has a queen bed plus sleeping loft and opens to beautiful forest views with a private stone staircase to the hot tub.

The Cucina, or kitchen house, hosts all-around windows with a full kitchen and living area featuring folk art, a wood stove, big screen TV and stunning sunset and forest views. The Bath House is a separate full bathroom with a clawfoot tub, forest views, and outdoor shower.

Several garden terraces for lounging. Star gaze on the 250 ft. deck at the Tin Lodge or stroll along the rolling trails. This is all private, just for you!

BONUS! Free VIP Tasting voucher to our guests for Benziger Winery in Glen Ellen.

Cinque Terre offers you complete solitude and communion with nature, with all the amenities of a uniquely original hideaway featuring decks, gardens, stone steps and patios, hot tub, full indoor kitchen, indoor wood stove, separate bath house, authentic Sioux tipi, outdoor gas grill, washer/dryer, ceiling fans, Satellite TV/VCR/CD/stereo, high speed internet, full privacy, sunset views, birdwatching, star gazing, and walking trails. All linens, kitchen utensils, and hand-made soaps included.

The property is only occupied by one guest/rental at a time, so privacy and solitude are guaranteed. We are located above Glen Ellen in the heart of the wine country in Sonoma County, near the Napa Border, 15 minutes up the mountain road.

Pets are always welcome to Cinque Terre, but our retreat is strictly reserved for non smokers.
