About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
The Ladder House is an elegant wine country get away located in the lovely village of Kenwood. In the midst of Sonoma Valley wine country, you are at the center of it all. A short drive from San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area, there are more than fifteen vineyards / tasting rooms within walking distance (~ 1 mile) of our little cottage and another twenty plus wineries within biking distance (~3-5 miles). If you are coming for the wine, you have picked the right location. Start by enjoying a complimentary bottle of Mayo Family Wine the day you arrive. You're likely to want to visit the local tasting rooms and buy some more once you have tried it. They are our local favorite. See the activities page on our website for more on the local wineries and other activities. You can find the link to our site just above the Owners Profile below.
Planned Winery Tours
We provide our customers with details of local wineries by area with suggestions based on your favorite varietals along with who to ask for at each winery. Makes for a great pre-planned tour should you not want to have to do the work yourself. Ask us about it when booking the Ladder House.
Have more than just wine on your mind? Sonoma Valley is alive with activities and places to go. Visit nearby Morton’s Warm Springs for a swim and picnic by the creek, spend the day out on the coast and have dinner with a view of the ocean, take a bike ride and enjoy the picturesque local scenery or go for a hike in nearby Jack London park or Sugarloaf Ridge park. Sugarloaf is also home to the Robert Ferguson Observatory where you can spend an evening star gazing. Hike Mount Baldwin, enjoy the majestic views of Northern California and spy Golden Gate Bridge on a clear day. Sonoma Square is just a 15 minute drive and you can usually find a major event going on each weekend. We have put together a book of activities which you can enjoy while staying at our peaceful cottage with each activity rated by amount of time required. From a two hour jaunt to day long adventures, we hope you will find several activities to enjoy.
There are several great restaurants in Kenwood, all providing a great meal and ambiance. Slightly farther away in Glen Ellen (5 min drive) are additional establishments offering a great variety of offerings, all top shelf. Or, venture a little farther south to Sonoma or north to Santa Rosa for yet more options. For more dining details, see our website activities page.

About the owner: We work and live in San Jose currently, though would love to retire some day in the Kenwood area. We hope you enjoy your stay at our vacation get away property in Kenwood. We put a lot of work and care into it.
Why the Owner Chose Kenwood, CA, USA:
Love the area, the wineries, the people and just had to get a place in the area. Walking distance to 15 + wineries including Mayo, VJB, Kenwood, Kunde and many others. Can't beat it for the wine or the people.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great location for visiting some of the best wineries Sonoma or Napa has to offer. Sometimes we just walk to the nearby tasting rooms and then we don't have to worry about driving after. Sometimes we ride our bikes to the wineries and sometimes we ride to one of the local state parks, Sugarloaf Ridge and Jack London Park. Nearby Morton's Springs is a great location for swimming or picnics, etc. Great dining in Kenwood and Glen Ellen and you can always visit Sonoma Square (about 15 min drive from the cottage). A nice drive to the coast for dinner or just to get out on the beach is a great adventure as well. And, of course, if you run out of wineries or things in Sonoma, you can go over the hill to Napa side to give them a try. Only a 40 min drive. By the way, while staying at the Cypress Ladder House, you will be able to get discounts for some of the local wineries, etc. See our discount coupons for Mayo Reserve Room while staying at the cottage.
