"The retreat house comforably housed my party of five adults, and it still felt extremely spacious. We were in town for a weekend family wedding, and two nights were simply not enough to stop and smell the roses. The pictures accurately show the accomodations. Everything is clean, well stocked, and comfortable.
The location is just a minute off the main road that leads to back to Sebastopol, but is nestled in a quiet valley where all you will hear at night are the local critters, which was nice to fall asleep to. There is also a nice view of the small valley from various parts of the house.
Christine and Lindsey (Lindsay?) were great hosts for my stay, and the garden next to the retreat house was a blast to harvest from, for supplementing meals. The farmstand at the lower property is also well stocked with fresh eggs, goat milk products, and other seasonal products for purchase. It operates on an honor system, and is generally refreshed by 7AM on most days, I believe.
You should know that cell phone reception is quite weak, to non-existent here at the retreat house, depending on your carrier. Verizon seemed to have a weak, but usable signal here, while my AT&T phone was "no service.""

"House interior is very well designed and furnished. Love how the water wise front yard coordinates with the colors inside. Nice bathrooms, view of vineyard from the luxury showers. Best day was visiting the Pacific Redwoods at Armstrong Forest, buying local produce from Forestville Farmer's Market, creating dinner in a gourmet kitchen and eating it with a glass of Martin Ray Cab as the sun sets through the old apple trees. Only wish the grape farmers didn’t have to till the ground the next morning. Well, we chose the countryside and will definitely choose it again!"

"What a wonderful home. Beautiful, tranquil, clean and lovely. Everything we needed and then some. Diane and Nick are great hosts...really lovely people. We desperately needed relaxation and we got it...every last detail from the pool to the jacuzzi to the fountain and grounds. We got so close to nature. We enjoyed our own private patio every morning. The kids loved the loft and went to sleep enjoying the stars every night. Our teenager had her own private room and so did we! We can't say enough wonderful things about this property and its owners (even though part of me doesn't want anyone to know so we can keep it to ourselves!). This house is also a perfect location. Close to the ocean, SF, wine country, redwoods, great restaurants, art communities...the full CA experience. It was hard to leave..."
