                        My partner and I are both university professors, so the semester break is the ideal time to travel. This year, instead of exchanging gifts, a group of us took a trip instead. My parents and a family friend met us at SFO, we hopped in a rental car, and a couple of hours later we were checking in at this charming house! We had a wonderful time. The house is comfortable, warm, cozy--we felt at home instantly. There were five of us--two in each bedroom and one on the pullout couch on the sun porch. We could walk to lots of restaurants, shops, bars--it was ideal! We managed just fine with two bathrooms. It did take me a moment to get used to a bath (only one bathroom has a shower!), but it was fine. It reminded me of living in France, when I had only a bathtub. I'd love to go back to this property in warmer weather. We'd use the deck and backyard much more. It was a great stay, and so nice to come back to after a day of adventures! Great memories!

                        My wife and I spent a week in Sonoma for our 25th Anniversary. We found the Sonoma Farmhouse to be quite charming and suitable for our week-long stay. I was very pleased that the house and property were as advertised on the owner's website. We truly enjoyed sitting on the back deck overlooking the mini-vineyard in the backyard. Although the house is old, it was clean and and well-maintained. The house is within a short walking distance of the downtown square, shopping and excellent restaurants. We highly recommend the Eldorado Kitchen (patio if you can get it) and the Swiss Inn on the downtown square. Just outside the square, we recommend the Meritage on Napa Street. all in all, it was delightful to experience.

                        Recommended for: Sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car.

                        This house was a goldmine find for my husband, myself, and our daughter. Not only was it a terrific location for day trips or walking around Sonoma, there is a dynamite running trail within blocks that was well used by our daughter. We were delighted by the house, not kitchy, but authentic, spacious, and comfortable. We had never seen a 'backyard' vineyard so this and the rose bushes and other landscaping was a delight. We would highly recommend the house and would like to return again for a stay. Bob was most helpful and personable.

                        The house is in an ideal location, just a 5 minute walk to the square. It's rustic with a real farmhouse feel. Each bedroom has it's own bath and with two living areas (Sunroom and little living room) there's room to spread out. The star of the place is the beautiful yard with it's grape vines, water tower, cute cottage and hot tub. It's the perfect ambiance for wine country. The owner is easy to contact and friendly. The only disappointment was the double bed in the front room. Since we were a group of women friends it would have been better to have a queen bed. There is a fold out sofa in the sunroom, however, so it worked out. I have rented the house next door owned by the same owner and would rent either one again.

                        Our daughter was married at Cornerstone Gardens and we wanted to stay somewhere we had a little elbow room and could fix our own meals and snacks. 6 of us stayed in front house plus guest cottage. Nice to have jaccuzzi available also. Very close to all downtown sites, plus perfect if someone is being married in local Catholic church. Walking distance to market and a.m. breakfast spot. Plus it turned out hairdresser was right around the corner, perfect for our needs. Beautiful back garden, very relaxing. Easy parking and very quiet.

                        This is a wonderful place to stay in the wine region. We could walk to the Sonoma Square where there are good restaurants and wine tasting. I've been to Napa and Sonoma many times and this is by far the best way to do such a visit. The house is cute and the patio in the back is wonderful for outdoor eating. The manger Bob was helpful and everything was clean and well maintained. We rent VRBO properties on all our travels and have always had a good experience. Highly recommend this place.

                        This cottage is absolutely gorgeous! We stayed here for 3 nights as we were getting married in Sonoma & we couldn't have picked a more beautiful place to stay. The gardens are immaculate and stunning, the cottage has all the amenities you could ever need and is beautifully decorated throughout. It was also extremely clean, spacious and comfortable and the garden cottage was an extra bonus. You cannot go wrong if you book this place! Thanks for an amazing stay!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: Dear VRBO Renters Wayne and I have owned Sonoma Farmhouse since 1999. We have been operating it as a vacation rental since 2004. We have put a lot of love and care into restoring this old house and grounds around it I am a landscape designer and my passion for gardening and plants reflects the wonderful care taken for the landscape and making your experience with us similar to a boutique resort. Bob McDonald Owner and Manager

                      Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
                      Why drive when you can walk to everything?

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      Where can you find a charming 1890's victorian bungalow on 1/2 acre of land with a vineyard, tank house, separate cottage, and hot tub 2 blocks from Sonoma Plaza? Did I mention the gorgeous and expansive gardens and privacy? Oh yes...what about that hot tub that overlooks your own private vineyard? Did I mention the downtown location?
