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.

Close to Napa with a feeling of being on a private retreat
Lovely home with all the amenities you could ever want! Eileen has thought of everything - extensive guest book with ideas for activities all over, fully equipped kitchen, bottle of wine and chocolates, outdoor games, etc. Bedrooms and baths are spacious and the sheets were SO soft! You won't be disappointed - this was the perfect place to come back to after a long day in Napa.
such a great place
We really enjoyed our stay at the ranch guest house. It was very spacious, clean, private and close to everything. Thank you for a welcome card, wine and See's candy, Eileen!
Everything you could want and more.......
My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed at this 'Ranch House' for four nights in April, 2018 after an LA coastal cruise. The purpose was to chose a home within the Napa/Sonoma Valley regions in order to explore the wine country and taste some of the California's wines!
This home was centrally located and had everything the four of us could want or need!
The owner of this home, Eileen, took care of every detail for us. The instructions, information binder, suggestions of favourite wineries and restaurants in these regions.
The amenities within the home were amazing to include a state of the art main TV and stereo system, TV's in each bedroom, ensuite bathrooms, ping pong table and equipment. There is an amazing pool in backyard that would be great if our visit was in the warmer season.
What impressed the four of us the most was that Eileen thought of every imaginable item that guests might want! The kitchen was stocked with pots, pans, dishes, every type of glassware to include wine glasses and even a slow cooker. Utensils for cooking and cutlery in abundance. Condiments such as peanut butter, jams, ketchup, etc. Paper towels, dishwasher tabs, laundry detergent, etc. This owner has thought of EVERYTHING!
There was a slight issue with the WIFI and Eileen immediately came over to rectify the problem!
On some days we had lunch later in the day after touring and had leftovers, so we returned to our house to enjoy the amenities and played some cards and tasting some wines, of course!
We all thoroughly enjoyed Eileen's 'Ranch House' and would certainly book this place again if we ever returned to this area of California! Nothing beats staying in a home, like this, as compared to staying in a hotel room!
We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this VRBO rental property to ANYONE!!

Thank you for your lovely detailed review. I so appreciate you taking the time to write it. It will be so helpful for those in the decision making stage of planning.
It was wonderful having all of you here. I enjoyed meeting you as did my Cavalier, Ruby the Ruby. Thank you for being such great guests. I hope you do find your way back to the Guest House. It would be wonderful to welcome you again.
Everything here we could need or want!
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.
Wonderful property, experience!!
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!!
We loved the house, the decor, the location - pretty all of it!!
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.
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.
The Guest House is in an ideal location with easy access to all the great things Northern California and the Wine Country have to offer. A short drive will take you from the bucolic wine country to the California coast to the enchanting City by the Bay, San Francisco.
