About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)
Down a private driveway, sitting on a hill, overlooking vineyard views and mountain vistas is a re-modeled 1920's guesthouse. We call it Casa Compostella, for 'field of stars'. Welcome to paradise in wine country! Sonoma County TOT 753N
The two-bedroom-plus-loft farmhouse has everything you need to make your wine country vacation enjoyable. Luxury sheets and towels, a gas fireplace, cozy rooms professionally designed in a sunny, comfortable style. The kitchen is fully-equipped to cook, or sit and look out on the 5 star view of vines and mountains. The location has more sun than anywhere in West Sonoma County! Tranquil mornings, warm afternoons and cool evenings make this a perfect climate for living inside or out.
A 60' solar heated lap pool and therapeutic hot tub await just steps from your door, along with an outdoor shower. Adjacent to the guesthouse is a path leading to an organic garden, where raspberries can be plucked for your morning breakfast. It is all here, and so much more. Take a leisurely drive a short distance to some of the greatest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay tasting rooms. We are minutes to Healdsburg or Sebastopol, where you can find ambitious chefs creating sumptuous meals using local ingredients.
Exercise and activities abound. You can bike on the Joe Rodata trail, just beyond the house, or take a ride over Westside Rd. Hiking is just 15 minutes away beneath beautiful redwood groves. There are two 9-hole and two 18-hole golf courses a short distance away. The Pacific coastline is a beautiful drive over the hill from Graton through Occidental, both great towns worth exploring. You will never run out of things to do. Wineries, art galleries, shopping and enjoying life is what Sonoma is all about!
Here at Knowlton Farms you are away from town, but close enough to everything. If you are looking for a special treat, you can revive yourself with a day trip to the famous mud baths in Calistoga. If you desire something closer there are several day spas in the area that will pamper you to your heart's content!
And - privacy! The house is away on its own. We’ve built a screened-in sleeping porch among the apple trees that is a perfect spot to read a book or have a massage from our favorite practitioner. Alongside the porch is your own patio with barbecue and outdoor eating area. There is a hammock between two old apple trees for a lazy nap. There are walks through the vineyards right behind the house. Gardens burst with flowers in season and there are many paths and places to rest that make the property like a park.
In addition, we have a poolhouse adjacent to the pool and jacuzzi that can be rented in addition to the guesthouse if you have an extra person or two! Separate bath facilities are there, plus morning coffee set-up. $ 75 per night additional charge.
We look forward to having you here and hope you find it as charming as we do!

Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We really enjoy renting the guesthouse to people from all over the world. We have made lifelong friends with many. Our beautiful farm would not be as rewarding if we only had it for ourselves. We have traveled the World and we are always so grateful when we return to our farm. There is beauty everywhere, but this place has become so special to us and much love has gone into the grounds and houses.
Why the Owner Chose Sebastopol, CA, USA:
We are right on the main wine road for Green Valley, Russian River Valley, and Sonoma Coast appellations. The house is set back from the road to give the feeling of absolute privacy, but with the convenience of getting to and from all the great sites the area has to offer. The pool and gardens are beautiful. You can go out and visit wineries then return to the oasis and relax by the pool or enjoy your own private garden area by the guesthouse.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our farm is situated in the heart of one of the Worlds best wine growing areas, The Russian River. Both Pinot and Chardonnay benefit from the full days of sunshine as well as the cooling from the Pacific breeze.. The pool is such a wonderful place to land after a day of wine tasting. The sunsets stretch on forever over the Green Valley hills in the distance. The house and grounds are restful and rejuvenating. A great place to unwind.
