Property description

THIS beautiful 2 bedroom. 2.5 bath home* is located on a private California ranch near the Wine Country. The ranch is over 300 acres, so privacy in this wonderful country setting is a treat unto itself. BUT there is so much more. The property is located just off Interstate 80 and California Highway 12. Both are major connectors to all the fun, beauty & excitement California has to offer. Hwy 12 is the route to the Wine Country & 20 minutes of driving will find you in Napa. A few more miles up the road are Yountville, St. Helena & Calistoga & all the great wineries, restaurants & shopping this area offers. Or maybe you're interested in seeing the Sonoma Wine Country. It too is an easy drive. Maybe you are looking for some city life. Traveling from The Guest House, San Francisco is 33 miles on I-80 or a delightful one hour ferry ride and California's state capitol, Sacramento, is 50 miles.

The living area is a large open space with living room area, dining & kitchen. The furnishings in the home are high quality & were chosen for this home. The large screen HD television in the living room has surround sound, satellite receiver with HBO, Showtime, Encore, Starz, DVD player, DVD library, iPod dock, iPod (5 & above iPhone adapter), stereo & AUX Plug setup for playing your own music, videos, pictures of the day, slide shows, etc through house system. There is a large gas jetted fireplace. A piano adds loads of fun if anyone plays. Full wet bar complete with glassware, wine openers, ice maker & wine frig.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the utensils for cooking & dining. Granite counter tops throughout the kitchen. Gas cook-top, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, full upright freezer, & in the laundry room full size washer and dryer.

Each bedroom has a King bed and its own flat-screen television with individual satellite receiver that have HBO, Showtime, Encore, Starz.

The private bath connected to each bedroom has a tub and stall shower. All the showers are tile as are the counters. In the master bath there is a vanity & large walk-in closet.

But that's not all. Outside is the private pool, propane barbecue, extra tanks are provided, umbrella-ed dining table with 6 chairs, a double chaise lounge, 4 single chaise lounges, 4 club chairs with ottomans, conversation area with love seat, club chairs, ottomans, coffee table, ping pong, badminton, croquet, stereo speakers. PERFECT for enjoying a sunny hot day or an evening in the cooling evening air.

Greeting you upon your arrival is a delicious box of See's Assorted Chocolates a California favorite, and two bottles of Napa Valley wine, a Chardonnay & Cabernet Sauvignon. All the treats are personal favorites of mine.

Property has security gate entrance.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1960

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Fairfield, CA, USA:
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. Twenty minutes to an hours drive to 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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
