  • Brambleberry Felt Like Home the Minute We Pulled in the Driveway

    "From the minute we pulled into Brambleberry we felt like we were "home". It is obvious that the owners of Brambleberry think of it as a home first, and a rental second as it is designed with relaxation and comfort in mind. For those that are unfamiliar with Sonoma & Napa a great deal of information is provided regarding the area. The owner was also very helpful and kept us informed as to what was "happening" in the area before we even arrived. The house was well equipped with very nice towels, bedding, kitchen equipment... We cooked at home (which we never do on vacation) because we loved the home so much we did not want to leave... even for the fabulous restaurants in the area. There were six of us (three couples) and everyone loved the property. If I had to come up with a negative it would be that there are three bedrooms upstairs and only 2 baths (there are also two 1/2 baths on the first floor). Luckily this was not a big issue for us. Don't let this stop you from staying at Brambleberry. The grounds are beautiful. We were out visiting vineyards during the day so we did not use the gorgeous pool or hot tub because by evening the air was chilly. The men used the bocci court every night and loved it so much that we are now putting a bocci court at our home. While the men played bocci my girlfriends and I could not get ourselves motivated to move from the wicker furniture (might have been the wine too) on the beautiful wrap-around covered porch. It was our favorite part of each day... relaxing on that porch. The owner of Brambleberry suggested that we would enjoy a visit at the MacLeod Family Vineyard that runs next to the property and she was so very correct. We have all visited more vineyards then we can count and this was our all-time favorite visit! George (he is over 90) and Marjorie (his daughter-in-law) are so warm and funny and entertained us and also taught us a great deal while we sampled their fabulous wines. About 2 minutes after we got to the vineyard I was ready to join the family and start harvesting grapes. George has a great story to tell about starting the vineyard and Marjorie filled us in on the daily workings. Don't miss that visit!!! Next time we go back to Sonoma I will absolutely try to rent Brambleberry again... Next time I just won't book so many outside activities so I can spend more time at Brambleberry... relaxing! A perfect location... home... property owners... vacation!!! Our best wine country stay ever!"

  • A treasure in the vineyards!

    "What a treasure, indeed. Everything about this quiet, homey retreat was perfect for our group of nine friends. We had plenty of space to be together, and places to be apart. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking full meals, plenty of plates, silver and glassware, and plenty of room to cook together. The patio and pool area were welcoming and landscaped beautifully. A rainy evening (yay for rain in parched California) found us huddled around one of two dining tables, working on one of many jigsaw puzzles available - we did three in our three days there.There is also a cupboard full of board games, and a library of interesting books. There were spots to sit and read, maps and directions for several bike rides and walks, the sound of crickets and frogs in the evening, and a wealth of birds to watch in the day (one of our group identified 24 different species one morning). The houses were sparklingly clean, and well supplied. The owners were responsive and answered all of our myriad questions promptly and clearly. On our first full day, as we sat on the patio drinking wine and enjoying the sunshine we spent some time discussing when we could schedule a return visit! Thanks MaryBeth and Ron for sharing your vacation rental with us. We will be back."

  • Family Birthday Weekend

    "We rented the property for my mom's 70th birthday. What a perfect and ideal weekend getaway. The property is amazing. Beautifully landscaped and fun activities for all ages. The pool, tennis court and basketball court all got a ton of use from our entire family. The location is close to everything - wine tasting, spas, shopping, hiking and restaurants. We are already talking about returning next year! Lisa was very easy to work with and gave us great recommendations for activities and restaurants nearby. I have already recommended this property to friends and relatives."

  • Heavenly -

    "My friends and I could not have enjoyed our time at Raisinwood any more. What a delightful house full of light and openness and beauty. The backyard is simply the best part of the house. So much land and trees and flowers. Beyond beautiful. The pool and the seating areas are screaming for big groups of people to lazy about the day (and nights). I only wish I had more people and more time. FYI.... cell service isn't great, so don't anticipate doing a ton of business.... but you shouldn't anyway! It forces you to relax. The sleeping arrangements are great and all the rooms have these fabulous doors opening up to the backyard. Preston couldn't have been easier and nicer to deal with. A joy!!!"
