Lovely home!

  • 4 of 5

A perfect location - close enough to town, but remote enough that you could feel like you were far away! Lovely home.

Beautiful views with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for a 40th birthday celebration weekend. We had 9 people and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms made it easy for this many women to get ready every day! We enjoyed waking up to breath-taking views from the front porch, and hiking along the vineyards on the property. The owner was very responsive and helpful prior to arrival, and was quick to respond when we had questions once we began our stay. If you're looking for that 'picturesque vineyard estate' for vacation, I would highly recommend this property. It's perfectly situated in the hills to maximize views and it has all the amenities you could want on a vacation!

Wonderful family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 nights at Bess Vineyards celebrating my mother's 70th birthday and had an amazing time! The grounds were beautiful, the house was charming and spacious, and the location was just minutes from Sonoma Square. Plus, the house was set up very well for kids, meaning we didn't have to worry about our 5 and 3 year old boys getting into trouble :). We would love to stay there again!

Lovely Sonoma Home

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for a friend's 40th birthday celebration. There were 5 couples and this home was perfect for 10 of us! The outdoor pool space was beautiful! We were able to enjoy one afternoon lounging by the pool and enjoying the beautiful CA weather! We grilled and ate our dinner on the back patio in the evening. All the bedrooms were very nice and bathrooms were just fine. I would recommend putting a mirror in both of the two bedrooms upstairs that don't have a bathroom attached. That was the only downfall with having to share a bathroom and trying to get ready. Kitchen area was nice and had everything we needed. We ordered groceries from a story ahead of time and they met us out at the house when we arrived. That was well worth it! We would definitely stay here again!

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a great escape? This is it! Plenty of comfortable beds with soft linens and enough bathrooms to satisfy nine women on a weekend birthday celebration. The weather was perfect and the surrounding vistas are breathtaking. Although we had scheduled several winery tours that occupied our days, this home would be an ideal place to relax for the entire visit on one of several decks/porches while gazing at the picture postcard views. Definitely worth a return trip to make more lifetime memories.

We were totally delighted with the house and blown away with the beauty and charm of the grounds.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a most memorable Thanksgiving vacation at the house. At the time I booked it I was mostly concerned with getting the proper number of beds and rooms for our family of 7 adults and 2 children. I had almost forgotten about the grounds upon which the house sits. For us midwesterners seeing this setting of the house, grounds, vineyards and location was like being in our own cinema. The house worked well for us. We were able to host Thanksgiving dinner for our extended family who were staying in town. The hot tub was a big hit for all of us. The guys loved playing ping pong (It's a millenial thing) as much as roaming the 10 acres. The grapes had been harvested by November but we used the vineyards and plants for multiple photographs. We found the house to be nicely furnished and comfortable. It was the wrong season for the pool but the hot tub and bocce courts were always waiting for us. It is remote; some navigating through the hilly roads is required. That is however, what makes it a special place. We tried to consolidate our trips to town and that made our stay most relaxing.We spent some time visiting a few of the nearby vineyards all within an hour or so of the house. Mara, the owner, had prepared a nice informational pamphlet with lots of things to do, phone numbers, web addresses and the like. We were able to use the in house Wi-fi and watched a few football games on the large screen tv in the master bedroom.

We just loved our time there, and would happily go back.
