Property description

Welcome to this peaceful retreat on over 5 acres of woods and meadows. From the moment you approach this residence with its private gated entrance and idyllic wooded location, you will feel like your vacation has started! Perfect for a couples getaway or week of wine tasting, hiking and just relaxing.

The large open floor plan on the first floor includes updated kitchen, spacious dining area for 6, separate seating areas for the new wood stove/fireplace and cozy area for TV and movie viewing, and a first floor bathroom. WIFI, cable and DVD are all provided.

The second floor includes two huge bedrooms with private, updated baths, a loft with additional sleeping for two, and a 2nd floor front deck with master bath balcony. Bedrooms have massive California Kings with high quality linens and mattresses - be prepared for a wonderful night's sleep! The master bathroom includes spa shower, soaking tub and amazing views to the property.

Spending time outside is like having your own nature preserve. Hillside landscaping includes native madrone, bay and oak trees, accented by zen bamboo clusters. Peaceful wooded and ridge views from the decks surround three sides of the house, and through huge windows on the first floor and 2nd floor bedrooms. Enjoy a soak in the hot tub in private and listen to nature.

This home is a special property and we've enjoyed staying here since we've purchased it. We're offering it for the first time to discriminating travelers who seek a peaceful retreat, love visiting wine country and enjoying the great restaurants of Sonoma County. As a special benefit to our guests, we offer access to the VIP Programs of Benziger Family Winery and Imagery Winery, which includes complimentary tastings and tours along with member-only discounts for wine purchases. Please ask us for more information on this valuable benefit.

The Glen Ellen area offers many wineries and world-class restaurants, hiking trails at local state parks, and routes for the avid cyclist, all within short driving distance from this lovely home. And when you're ready to end your day with a great meal, you are five minutes walking distance to gourmet dining destinations like Glen Ellen Star and the Fig Cafe. Top off your evening with a desert martini at the Glen Ellen Inn to make it a perfect night!
