Sebastopol cottage description

Pleasant Hill Farm offers a fully furnished, charming and cozy (700 sq ft.) two bedroom, one bath guest house which sleeps four. For an additional fee of $50 per person per night, one or two extra guests can be accommodated in the water tower bedroom nearby which has a double bed. The water tower has just a bedroom (no TV) and guests staying there use the Guest House bathroom, kitchen, and living room with TV. The guest house kitchen has a dining table which seats four. There is a comfortable sitting room with a luxurious couch, over-sized chair with ottoman, flat screen TV, desk with wireless internet and an ergonomic chair. Outside, there is a large apple orchard and there are places to sit and picnic around the orchard. Dine indoors or al fresco, at a rustic outdoor barbecue area overlooking the main orchard. The guest house is attached to the barn and sits facing the recently renovated farm house built in 1900, vineyard, carriage house and water tower. The guest house is comfortably and tastefully furnished with art, super comfy beds and two flat screen TVs with cable in both the master bedroom and living room. The kitchen has a refrigerator, oven, stove, microwave, and everything you need to prepare food, serve and dine. Dishes are be done by hand as there is no dishwasher. Laundry facilities are very nearby at a laundromat on Pleasant Hill Road. The guest house is supplied with paper products adequate for several days but guests are responsible for resupply during their stay as there is no maid service. Eat indoors or sit under the massive oaks (lit at night) at long outdoor picnic tables made from fallen trees overlooking the orchard. Pleasant Hill Farm is a working farm so depending on the time of year, the orchard could be quiet or there may be considerable orchard and vineyard activity including groups of 10 to 30 people coming up to pick apples and enjoy the farm.

                          Stay in a charming two bedroom guest house on one of Sebastopol's historic apple farms. The guest house sleeps four and for an additional $75 per night, there is also an extra bedroom in the bottom of the close-by water tower with a double bed. The water tower bedroom shares the bath in the guest house. The 700 sq ft. guest house is attached to the barn and sits facing the remodeled farm house, originally built in 1900, the carriage house /garage, and the water tower. It is furnished with comfortable beds and 2 flat screen TVs with cable in both the master bedroom and living room. There is wireless connectivity and a computer desk with ergonomic chair. Eat indoors or, in the warm weather, enjoy the sunset and eat in expansive surroundings under the oak trees overlooking the orchard and hills beyond. Cook your dinner on an outdoor fire-pit/ barbeque and shop in our wonderful, local organic produce markets. Pleasant Hill Farm is just outside of the town of Sebastopol. There are many restaurants within 5 miles or less. Twenty minutes to the West is the ocean and Bodega Bay. Santa Rosa is twenty minutes to the east and Healdsburg is 1/2 hour North via a beautiful drive through wine country back roads. Enjoy antiquing, local farm trails destinations, local cheese factories, Art Walks, Farm Trails, swimming or canoeing in Russian River and cycling or walking through this beautiful part of the Northern California wine country. Pleasant Hill Farm is a working farm so depending on the time of year, there may be considerable orchard and vineyard activity.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: I'm a semi-retired business person and a new farmer! I recently purchased this wonderful farm in the country. I'm getting to know my very friendly neighbors and the Sebastopol community. I moved here from Tiburon in Marin County. After working and traveling to many places in the world, I found this location pretty idyllic. Come for a visit!

                          Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol:
                          The farm is ideally located just outside of the city limits of Sebastopol in a completely private, country setting yet its close to town and everything Sonoma County has to offer. A half hour to the West is the ocean, Occidental and Bodega Bay. Twenty minutes to the east is Santa Rosa. Healdsburg is 1/2 hour North via a beautiful drive through wine country back roads. Enjoy antiquing, local Farm Trails destinations, local cheese factories, rafting on the Russian River, Luther Burbank Farm which is only a mile away, the Art Walk, Santa Rosa's new Green Music Center, cycling or walking through this beautiful part of the Northern California wine country.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          Pleasant Hill Farm is one of California's more than 5,000 small farms which are produce suppliers. Because it is a working orchard and vineyard you can observe the workings of the farm during certain times of year such as pruning, thining, and harvest. Otherwise, you will just see lots of beautiful apple trees and grape vines busy growing! The guest cottage is warmly furnished like a home. In fact, it was my home for a year and a half while I was renovating the 113 year old farm house so I know you will be very comfortable!
