" The Goat House was a delightful place to spend our first fall in California wine country. We really enjoyed the gourmet kitchen and there was room for a big thanksgiving dinner with visitors. The hot tub was awesome.The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Jon and Kyla were so kind and helpful, it was a pleasure having them as neighbors. We hope to return in the future."

"Staying at the Goathouse in Villa Grande for the past three months has been a wonderful experience. There is plenty of privacy and extreme amenities. I have been spoiled with digital cable with several multiple movie channels, lots of digital music channels and a great television. There is access to wireless internet service. There is also a large hot tub for private use! The house itself is completely furnished and is lovely and very tastefully decorated. The queen sized bed is heavenly and the eat in kitchen is fully functional and very nicely equipped. It's located in a beautiful part of the Russian River and you can walk to the beach from the house. You can drive to the ocean in fifteen minutes and exploring the nearby towns is great fun. Had I not purchased a home in the area I would still be staying at the Goathouse. Enjoy!"

Why the Owner Chose Villa Grande:
We fell in love with the Old Villa Grande Hotel property the moment we saw it. It was in terrible condition. We have been lovingly restoring and remodelling it. Our plan is to live in Villa Grande forever. The Old Goathouse was our little vacation getaway which we remodelled for ourselves prior to moving to the area fulltime. It is adorable! We love it and you will too.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Villa Grande is a town full of historic Craftsman Cottages. We have a local beach which you and your four legged friends can enjoy. This is a lush retreat where you will feel welcome and either have privacy and a quiet retreat with hot tub, or enjoy the local community and beach. We have had people come and write books, proposals, create business, have family gatherings, go winetasting, or spend a season visiting us. We have many return visitors! You are always welcome.
