About Eileen Ferrari

My sister and I own the ranch. We have had so many wonderful experiences over the years we thought others might enjoy this unusual but convenient destination. Numerous attractions and destinations are noted on the map.

Eileen Ferrari purchased this house in 1960

Why Eileen Ferrari chose Fairfield

This vacation rental was not purchased as a vacation rental, it's a ranch. My family bought the ranch in 1960. Cattle graze on the acres, horses are raised and a sophisticated country life is enjoyed. Our location is one of the best in our area. Twelve to thirty-five miles from destinations travelers hope to see when visiting the Northern California Napa Valley and San Francisco Bay Area. My professional background is hotel management. So with my experience, knowledge and attention to detail every aspect of your stay is scrutinized, from the amenities throughout the house (cotton balls, Q-tips, bottled water, cooking spices, condiments) to the beautiful arrival gift made complete with a select bottle of Napa Valley Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, See's chocolates and other goodies.

What makes this house unique

11 miles to Napa, 25 miles to St Helena, 33 miles to San Francisco, 50 miles to Pacific Ocean, 60 miles to Sacramento...easy connections to Highways 80, 680, 12. Lake Tahoe about a 2 hour drive.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Eileen,

Thank you so much for your hospitality—we are MOST appreciative. It was great to meet you and Ruby the Wonder Dog, Official Meeter & Greeter for the Ferrari Ranch.

What a treat to be in your beautiful home! From your driveway to walking up to the front door, it was clear that you had put a lot of careful thought and consideration into how you wanted your home to function while accommodating your guests, friends and entertaining. Everything flowed and connected perfectly together and is a great reflection of you… gracious and welcoming.

We especially liked that you joined the kitchen with the living room. When “company” comes over, everyone usually winds up in the kitchen. Now everyone can feel connected to what is going on in both areas. You did a fantastic job!

In addition, the location and piece of land is perfect. The bonus is—there is no extra charge for the horses, cows and wild life. From the horses whinny and birds chirping, to the wind gently wafting through the trees… the picture was complete of what a ranch should have and look like. You did a great job in finding this gem because you are ideally located just a few miles drive from anywhere you want to go when visiting the wine country. For us it was several day trips to tour the local vineyards. These were easy drives to and from the Ferrari Ranch.

Finally, we had a great time and as we like to say in the South, “Everything was simply lovely.” There was a new beginning and happy ending to every day… from morning yoga and coffee poolside to relaxing afternoons of “Cocktails & Croquet” on the lawn.

Wonderful property, experience!!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at the ranch. This is an incredibly beautiful home with every amenity you could wish for. An unbelievably comfortable environment that makes you want to never leave. Eileen is a very gracious host and I can say with certainty that as long as this home is available-we have found our one and only go-to place when travelling to wine country. Thank you again, Eileen!!

This place is incredible. Owner has provided everything possible to enhance our stay. The beautiful secluded yard was serene and had ping pong or great sitting areas to just sitt and talk. House was warm and welcoming with every amenity we could need. The fireplace was great! comfortable beds, living areas, great kitchen, etc. We will definitely return.

We loved the house, the decor, the location - pretty all of it!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was set up perfect for our needs. Beds comfy, bathrooms were great & overall feel of the house was "homey"!! Loved the extra touches with wine, chocolates & candies. Enjoyed hanging outside on patio after a long day at the wineries! We cooked up a great steak dinner on Sunday ( my husbands birthday ) and watched the Chiefs on TV. We really enjoyed our stay. Left earlier on Monday because of the fires. Could smell ash/smoke outside and thought we better get going. Thank you so much for everything.

Owner's Response: It was so lovely to have you here for your stay and I hope another opportunity presents itself for your return. Heavy smoke and grey skies were the biggest impact we experienced during these fires. I did have friends evacuate to the ranch for the past week. We were very lucky, extremely fortunate and are now thankful we are returning to normal. Best always, Eileen

Pleasant stay in a fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

The guest house at Ferrari Ranch is a beautiful property, just what was needed by myself and family after 10 days trail walking in Yosemite and Tahoe.

The perfect place to kick back and relax by the pool!!

Absolutely everything you need to ensure a great stay is provided by Eileen.

Would strongly recommend.
