About the property

Bungalow, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

High above the Napa Valley on top of Spring Mountain nestled among trees and vineyards, is a secluded Craftsman-style one bedroom bungalow on a five acre estate. Several premium Spring Mountain wineries are within walking distance, including Pride Mountain Vineyards, Sherwin Family Vineyards and Barnett Vineyards to name a few. St. Helena, the heart of the Napa Valley, is just a short drive. This property is a great home base for exploring the Napa Valley with its excellent wineries and restaurants. Since the property boarders Sonoma County, Kenwood, Valley of the Moon and other great Sonoma County wine growing regions are also just a short drive.

If you would rather stay in for the day, the property is secluded and offers a very peaceful setting. Enjoy relaxing on the deck with a glass of wine and a good book with a view of the mountains on the east side of the Napa Valley. Birds are plentiful and feed from a handcrafted bird feeder. This only adds to a relaxing afternoon.

Built in 2008, this bungalow has captured the charm of the early twentieth century Craftsman-style, but offers the modern conveniences of the twenty-first century. Enjoy cooking in a gourmet kitchen with a Viking range or grill on the barbeque on the deck. Enjoy your dinner either indoors or outdoors on the hand-crafted deck with the surrounding view. There is also a picnic area with a barbeque in a grove of trees on the property that is a short distance from the bungalow.

After diner, enjoy the cozy living room with a fireplace and end the evening by relaxing in the Thermo-Masseur, air jetted tub.

The rent also includes a weekly cleaning service.

Lovely mountain top house in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Tim and Missy's lovely, well appointed house. Great kitchen to use all of the fab local products. Super location on the top of Spring Mountain, allowing you access to both Sonoma and Napa counties.

Perfect at home in the middle of the vineyards

  • 5 of 5

The house could not be better located in the oaks, shaded and pleasantly cool. Beautiful and huge redwood terrace in nature, high tech BBQ. The wonderful tranquility is intermittently interrupted by woodpeckers and hummingbirds. Cozy living room with gas fireplace. In the evening the whole house heats up in a solid atmosphere. Kitchen with bar is fully equippedd, huge fridge/freezer with icemachine, nothing`s missing! Linen for bathroom and bedroom, bathrobes are available as well. The porperty is well maintained and clean. You walk to several vinerys in 10-15 minutes through the beautyful wines. The city of St.Helena is really close, 15 min ride by car. And there are great Restaurants, Cindy`s backstreet kitchen, Gauchos brazil Jurasceria in Napa ore Gott`s roadside Burgers, St.Helena, an authentic Burger place.

The owners Missy & Tim Doran are living 100 yards off and take care of the needs of theire guests even from afar! Thanks Missy & Tim!!!

Idyllic retreat in the Napa Valley

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful bungalow recently. We loved every minute of our stay. The property is well located for exploring the Napa Valley. The nearby town of St. Helena is a delight and we especially enjoyed our lunches at the Model Bakery, the Farmstead and the Market. The local grocery store is well stocked with everything one might need. The bungalow itself is set on its own grounds on Spring Mountain. It is very peaceful and tranquil and ideal for those who wish to get away from it all. There are a number of wineries within walking distance. We visited the Pride family winery. The bungalow is extremely well furnished. The open plan kitchen/dining/living room area is a large, bright area with access to the decking. The kitchen is a chef's delight. The owners, Tim and Missy live near by and are on hand if required. They are very hospitable and also knowledge about the area. We were sorry to leave and hope to return in the future.

Marvelous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this lovely and tastefully furnished bungalow for a month, and loved every minute of it -- we were sorry we had to leave! It's spacious and wonderfully secluded, situated amid trees and mountain vineyards only a 15-minute drive from St. Helena. The kitchen, with Viking gas range, is completely equipped with china, cooking utensils, and appliances. There's a terrific tiled walk-in shower and a jacuzzi (which we didn't try). The king-size bed is so comfortable that my wife and I feel asleep when our heads hit the pillow! An unusual bonus is a large set of bookcases with novels, biographies, and tourist information -- I spent a lot of time browsing through the collection.

The owners, Tim and Missy, could not possibly have been nicer and more hospitable; they live about 100 yards away in their own beautiful home, and were at pains to ensure that there was nothing we needed during our stay.

We recommend this cottage unequivocally to those looking for peace, quiet, and comfort in the Napa Valley near charming St. Helena -- and its excellent restaurants! This was a first-time VRBO experience for us, and I know we'll find it difficult to top.

Secluded Craftsman Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many places on this site. This cottage/guest house has been the nicest place by far! Our hosts Tim and Missy provided us with every amenity imaginable; beautiful furnishings in the Craftsman style. It is within walking distance of several wineries. It's a beautiful serene and private paradise. We can't wait to go back!

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property is very well maintained. Sunrises stupendous! I needed to focus on a work project for the month, owners were very supportive, helpful, and went out of their way to make that happen. Loved the tub, and the fireplace. It was truly a home away from home, good place to get out and walk as well. I stayed in the majority of the time, but access to shopping a short drive away in either direction to St. Helena or Santa Rosa when I needed it. I would definitely recommend this property, to relax, sightsee nearby, or just get away.
