Just jump on your bike and ride.
Dana from Corte Madera writes 'What a great house! We stayed here with our daughter who loved the horses and other farm animals. It is a quick drive to the square, Napa, and local wineries. We took a beautiful morning walk along the vineyards -- a very peaceful place. We look forward to staying here again!'
