About Don and Amy MacNair
Amy, a retired office manager and Don, a local landscape architect are long time residents of Sonoma County. The Kenwood House was purchased in 1971 by Don’s mom where he has lived off and on for 45 years. Amy moved to Santa Rosa as a little girl with her family in 1962. We met in 1994 and were married in 1998. We raised our blended family in Santa Rosa. During this time, the Kenwood House was established as one of the original vacation rentals in the Kenwood area. We ran this business continuously for 13 years providing a unique visitor experience and a high level of hospitality. In 2010 we decided to move to the Kenwood House to enjoy this special place ourselves. Now with an expanding extended family, we have moved on. Once again the Kenwood House is available for guests to enjoy during their visit to Sonoma County. When we began this venture, one of our goals was to offer visitors from around the world a unique place to stay while experiencing and enjoying wine country in Kenwood, the heart of Sonoma Valley. It gives up great pleasure to share our home and offer the opportunity for our guests to make their own memories of their stay here.

Wonderful location, top notch hospitality!
This was the perfect location for two couples to get away from it all and enjoy wine country! The home is absolutely beautiful and in such a convenient location to so many activities.
Don and Amy were super easy to work with and very friendly. We enjoyed their home, and they went to great lengths to ensure we had everything we needed for an amazing stay, including fresh flowers and some delightful wine!
All of the living spaces were perfect! The kitchen was fully stocked and contained everything you'd need, and the beds were super comfy! The backyard, including the spa, were great places to relax, enjoy morning coffee, and admire the beautiful landscaping. Thank you for sharing your amazing home with us! We can't wait to visit again!
Darling House and Perfect Location!
The Kenwood House has every comfort and amenity you could possibly want. The hosts thoughtfully thought of everything. Even though we did not cook (too many great restaurants close by), the kitchen was well equipped with top of the line appliances. Cozy furniture and extra throws. Lush landscaping (the owner is a landscape architect - and it shows). We enjoyed the hot tub. Lots of great outdoor spaces, including lounge chairs by a fire pit. The hosts provided lots of helpful information (menus, maps, discount coupons, etc) about local restaurants, shops and wineries, all of which were conveniently close. Have been to the wine country several times and have to say that this was the best and most centrally located home base we've ever had. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. We'll definitely be back!
Wonderful House and Terrific Weekend
If you're looking for a quiet retreat in Kenwood/Glen Ellen the Channing House is your place. Cozy, spacious and charming with modern touches and ample creature features.
Amazing Wine Country Vacation Home that will not dissapoint
We absolutely loved the Kenwood house! It had everything we could have asked for. Trust me when I say the pictures do not do it justice. The back yard will blow your mind. Being in the heart of wine country you just can not help but relax and take in what life is really suppose to be about. If you put this house on your list make sure to just pull the trigger and do it.
Jeffrey, we are over the moon happy you and your friends had such a fabulous visit in our special Kenwood House! It’s true absolutely everyone just loves staying there! Thank you for being such outstanding guests! Please come back again! Cheers!
The Kenwood house was the perfect place for our girls weekend. It is beautifully decorated with a well appointed kitchen and luxurious linens, and the wine and cheese provided by the hosts upon arrival was a nice touch. We especially enjoyed the lush, beautifully landscaped backyard for afternoon wine. Thank you Amy and Don!!
Kim~Thank you for the lovely compliments and review! Don and I are so pleased you had a wonderful time at The Kenwood House and enjoyed all the love we put into making it fabulous for our guests! Thank your leaving it so clean and neat and well taken care of! We hope you come back again!!!
What a find!
Our only regret about this property was that we couldn't stay longer! It is a beautiful house, inside and out. A perfect place for our week long wine getaway. Many hours can be spent relaxing on the front porch or in the backyard gardens. The owners are very accessible and made our stay easy. We will be back again!
