  • Great location!

    "Loved our stay in this cozy, comfortable, and quiet location with a beautiful redwood grove right outside our door. Great dining options both casual and fine dining (in a casual atmosphere) close by. We were able to tour a number of wineries in both Sonoma and Napa. Owners were so friendly and very helpful before our visit and as we planned our activities once we arrived. Can't wait to visit our "California family" again."

  • Sonoma retreat

    "This is a great place to stay in Northern Sonoma if you want a quiet picturesque venue away from the crowds. Despite its isolation, it is still close to great vineyards, restaurants, and little towns. It is so peaceful in the mornings you may want to hang out there all day! House is spacious, clean, and well equipped, so you can easily eat in if you like. It is surrounded by a Pinot Noir vineyard and has a spectacular view of the surrounding hills. Furniture, especially the beds, were extremely comfortable."

  • Wonderful artistic getaway!

    "The Airplane house was such a gem! My friends and I booked the house for a wedding we were attending in nearby Sebastopol, but ended up making a weekend of it and had such a great time! The house was filled with fascinating things like the airplane sticking out both ends, and the piece of the golden gate bridge out front. The house has a really open layout so everyone feels really connected. We spent the majority of our time nestled in the downstairs kitchen/hangout space. The wall to wall benches made for a cozy spot to congregate while we made dinner, played games, etc. Our dog also loved the house. The grounds are huge and fun to roam around and look at all the fun sculptures and gardens. The place is huge and could sleep so many people, but with only 1 bathroom, 6 was the most you would want. But it was great for everyone to have their own spot. Lynda was a great host and SO accommodating. She was very flexible and willing to help whenever we needed anything. She also gave great recommendations on nearby wineries, restaurants and activities. We had a great day playing bocce ball and wine tasting in the area. I highly recommend this house for anyone looking to unwind in a gorgeous setting, or to check out all the local wine tasting, or even get adventurous and explore the gorgeous area through hiking or biking."

  • Another Wonderful Week in Occidental

    "My family spent another wonderful week at Sherman Forest. We were there in April of last year. The property is perfect for us. There were no surprises. The owner is a gracious host. He made us all feel welcome. We could not have asked for or found a better location and house for our trip. We will be back. Eating in and around Occidental is GREAT! Howard's Cafe for breakfast, Barley and Hops Pub for dinner, Union Hotel for Pizza, Rocker Oysterfeller's in Valley Ford and Underwoods in Grayton for dinner. Lots of wineries and other sites to visit. We will return. Thank you again Tom for being such a grand host."
