Timeless style and good taste abound at the Sonoma Gracious Getaway.
You'll notice the peaceful, quiet neighborhood as soon as you turn down the lane! The tree lined cul-de-sac is just one of the many charms of this home. This home as the perfect retreat, a place to relax and unwind after a day of Sonoma fun. Please note: late-night outdoor activity is STRICTLY PROHIBITED.
Open the front door and take in the living room's breathtaking floor to ceiling imported limestone fireplace ... then step into the fully equipped gourmet kitchen to find every cook's culinary need anticipated and filled.
The beautiful adjoining solarium is bathed in bright sunlight and beckons you to read an interesting book or magazine – or just take a restful nap.
Three steps down to the rear flagstone patio there’s a 5 burner Charbroil gas grill and stylish teak furniture –dining set, conversation set and 'couples bench' -- all with comfy pillows. Colorful market umbrellas will keep the hot, mid-day sun at bay. But after the sun sets, the flagstone patio becomes an enchanted setting with twinkling Tivoli string lights. On chilly nights warm yourself under the two propane patio heaters or just thoroughly relax in the gazebo-covered, 4-person Fantasy Spas hot tub with a soothing waterfall feature.
Upstairs in the loft you can take in a wide variety of cable shows on the 50” Panasonic smart flat screen television. And if you prefer, dozens of classic and popular DVD movies are available for your viewing enjoyment.
In addition, high speed internet makes surfing the web on your laptop or tablet a breeze. If you just can't get away from work, a comfy chair and desk are provided. Key-less entry and Xfinity total home comfort system makes it easy to control central heating and air-conditioning as well as some lighting from the simple-to-use console.
When the star-filled wine country sky tells you you're finally ready for a truly relaxing night's sleep, both bedrooms are outfitted with brand new, top-of-the-line Sealy Posturepedic queen mattresses and 400 thread count sheets. Extra pillows and blankets are conveniently available in both bedrooms for your sleeping comfort.
Enjoy a large rain shower head in the master bedroom's shower. The second bathroom has both a bathtub and shower. In both bathrooms you'll find Paya organic bath gel, shampoo and conditioner as well as thick, fluffy towels and washcloths. Hair dryers, ironing board and iron, razors, sewing kit and other amenities are also available.
For early risers, grab a quick cup of coffee from the Keurig or fill the French Press and take it out to the front yard teak bistro set to enjoy the sun rise.
Before heading out for the day's adventures, create a delicious breakfast in the dream wine country kitchen.
Begin the day tasting at some of the country's best wineries. Fill the house picnic hamper for an easy, alfresco luncheon. Spend the evening at a world class restaurant OR gather ingredients at either of Sonoma's farmers markets or one of our local upscale grocery stores (Whole Foods or Sonoma Market) and make your own dinner at the Sonoma Gracious Getaway. Don't forget to garnish with fresh herbs grown just outside the solarium door.
