Sonoma house description

NOTE: DUE TO A RECENT PHISHING/SCAM EXPERIENCE WITH ONE OF OUR GUESTS, WE WILL ONLY REPLY TO INQUIRIES WITH A LEGITIMATE PHONE NUMBER ON YOUR INQUIRY. IF NOT, YOU WILL BE MARKED AS SPAM WTIHOUT A REPLY! You're welcome to call us! THANKS!

Kick off your shoes and enjoy a restful stay in our lovingly renovated Craftsman bungalow. You are welcome to turn back the clock to that bygone era of simple elegance and unfettered relaxation. This quiet two acre getaway offers comfort and ease; whether it be with a fresh brewed cup of coffee on the east facing front porch where you can gaze across the pastoral field where sheep graze, or with an evening beverage on the west facing deck where expansive views take in vineyards, heritage oaks and distant hills, the tranquility of our country life calls.

Conveniently located in the heart of the Carneros appellation of Sonoma, you will be less than eight minutes from the historic Sonoma Plaza, 20 minutes from Petaluma to the west, Napa to the east, state parks to the north or Marin county to the south.

No matter what your desire, we have it all: wonderful art galleries, cafes, restaurants, artisanal bakeries, wineries, farmers markets, the Sonoma Raceway, hiking, biking, golf, horseback riding, antiquing...as well as charm, comfort and tranquility all awaiting you at Sonoma DunRoamin!

At the end of your day of touring or relaxation, wrap up in a warm blanket and step outside to behold the twinkling night sky and enjoy the soothing sounds of silence. Finally, slip into 500 thread-count sheets and down comforter atop a TempurPedic mattress for the rejuvenating sleep you’ll need for your next day of Sonoma roamin’.

We invite you to delight in our special bungalow during your wine country sojourn!

                  2 local airports are minutes from the property offering landing privileges as well as bi-plane charters to get a birds-eye view of the wine country; occasionally, hot air balloons are seen floating above the field across from our bungalow. We were fortunate to have one land on our field early one morning in August 2011! Breathtaking!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: A Bay Area lad and an Iowa lass both fell in love with Sonoma many years ago. We would be honored to be your hosts while you're touring the wine country north of San Francisco.

                  Why the Owner Chose Sonoma:
                  It is our pleasure to share this dream-come-true with you! What was once a simple country house has been lovingly designed and rebuilt by Ted, fulfilling his lifelong dream to live a Craftsman Lifestyle. Ted also built a second dwelling behind the bungalow which is our residence. Here is your opportunity to return to that simpler life, the Craftsman Life, if even for a few days...to slow down and savor each precious moment life offers you. 'DunRoamin'... a fitting name for a dream-come-true! We are done roaming! And invite you to do the same if only for a few days.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  In addition to the unique charm and beauty of the bungalow, the property boasts brilliant sunrises over the Mayacamas mountains along with romantic sunsets over the Sonoma coastal range making this property a very special place to start and end each day in the beautiful Sonoma countryside. If you're seeking a peaceful and quiet place to call home for awhile, look no further. You are Dunroamin!
